  1. "In times like these, it helps to recall that there have always been times like these."- Paul Harvey
  2. Picking up from Michelle Yeoh and allowed to Imdb.... Guardians Of The Galaxy Volume 2 Sylvester Stallone Demolition Man
  3. "With a few red lights and a few old beds We made a place to sweat. No matter what we get out of this, I know, I know we'll never forget."
  4. I remember a DJ giving that as the name, back when it charted. That darn DJ steered me wrong! Ok, next song...
  5. vpw used INSINUATION ("weasel words") to INSINUATE he was all sorts of things. He also rewrote the definitions of things so they could be applied to him. He INSINUATED he spoke for God, so some people thought he was a prophet. He claimed an evangelist doesn't win souls, but rather gets the church excited so THEY go and DO THE WORK of winning souls. He claimed an apostle ("A SENT ONE") was not a sent one, but "one who brings 'new light' to their generation. It may be 'old light', but to that generation, it's 'new light.' " All so that people would say he was those, all without him actually using the words "I am an apostle" or "I am a prophet" or "I am an evangelist." The definitions of "teacher" and "pastor" , those he was already used to finessing.
  6. So, home-church on Skype or something, is that what you're suggesting? :)
  7. Lori Petty played Tank Girl, Malcom Mc Donald, IIRC, played the Big Bad. Jet Girl, the shy British geek, was played by Naomi Watts, if you can believe it.
  8. It was not Dr Higgins, it was Rosalind Rinker. The thread "the Way-Living in Wonderland" (I heartily recommend that thread and "vp and Me in Wonderland" when you have time) is here: https://www.greasespotcafe.com/ipb/topic/7363-the-wayliving-in-wonderland/ Towards the bottom of page 1 was my post dated August 29, 2005, and that's where the quote appears. We discuss that very quote later- Oakspear, IIRC, spotted it first and we discussed it from there. *checks* At the bottom of page 10, SUNESIS was the one that caught it (not Oakspear.) We start discussing it further on page 11.
  9. Hm. They told him he could do anything EXCEPT ONE, and that was his immediate UNYIELDING focus, and they had the nerve to be offended that he went 180 degrees from his instructions. (ANY church where tithing is taught on for an ENTIRE MONTH looks like it's ONLY in it for the money, and NOBODY will like it.) "They said not to teach on money, so I didn't-I taught on tithing." I'll bet he felt so clever, so pleased with himself for adhering-PARTLY- to the letter while perverting the spirit of his instructions. For those wondering if they were right to give him instructions, they were the ELDERS-the experienced local leaders, and he was the guy who JUST arrived and was young and lacking in experience. Unless he had a compelling reason beyond tweaking their noses, he should have considered their counsel wise and followed it. Convenient coincidence that what served God just happened to be the easy path for him. pg-177, he meets Rosalind Rinker in Indiana. (page-178, since "Nothing cataclysmic...") Watch this next quote from pg-179. pg-180. pg-181. pg-185-186. vpw is continuing his tour. Somebody asked about vpw admitting he'd gone to school and been working as a pastor for some time BEFORE he believed "the Bible was the Word of God." This was the quote from "the Way-Living in Love" where he admitted it.
  10. The discussion "The Way-Living in Wonderland" discussed the book "The Way-Living in Love." We had excerpts of the content of that book, and discussed them. One of the quotes was from something like the second year of vpw's career as a minister, meaning he'd completed years of study to complete a Masters and Doctorate in Divinity. BTW, the Masters was from the respectable Princeton Theological Seminary (not Princeton University, but both are located at Princeton NJ, thus their names) and the Doctorate was from Pikes Peak Seminary, which was more of a degree mill than anything else, with all work submitted by mail. The quote was from that time, and said Dr Higgins (I think it was her) introduced him to the idea that the Bible was the Word of God. He claimed he hadn't heard that before- not believing it, anyway. At the time, he'd been working as a pastor at a church and delivering sermons on Sunday. I'll see if I can get a link to the thread, then the post. BTW, since that got discussed in the thread, there's more than 1 post that's relevant, obviously.
  11. For a moment, I was thinking "Donald Pierce" and thinking about how I never watched the X-Men movies. But ALEXANDER Pierce is connected with SHIELD. So, this might be ROBERT REDFORD.
  12. That's the movie. If you'd seen it, you might have remembered there was a Cole Porter number in it.
  13. "Now - everybody throw down your guns or I scrape off all her make up!.....This might take a really long time." "Look, it's been swell, but the swelling's gone down." "Listen up, cause I'm only telling you this once. I'm not bedtime story lady, so pay attention. It's 2033. The world is *screwed* now. You see, a while ago this humongous comet came crashing into the earth. Bam, total devastation. End of the world as we know it. No celebrities, no cable TV, no water. It hasn't rained in 11 years. Now 20 people gotta squeeze inside the same bathtub - so it ain't all bad." "All the king's horses and all the king's men... wish they had the technology I have." "I have two words for you. Brush your teeth! " "What the hell is that?" " Sounds like Cole Porter, sir." "End it!" "Sir!" ]"You gotta think about it like the first time you got laid. You just gotta say: "Daddy, are you sure this is right?" " You're sick." " How come you always do that? How come you always cover your mouth when you smile? You got bad teeth or somethin'?" " Eight, eight, the burning hate. Between Sunday and Monday there lies a day so dark it will devastate. " " Look, if you want to torture me, spank me, lick me, do it. But if this poetry sh* continues, shoot me now, please." "You take the tank!" " Are you sure? " "You see, this tank isn't... isn't..." "What? Just one little adjective and we'll have a *whole* sentence. Isn't, glad, sad... mad... Lonely..." " Isn't... Operational." "How do I know you're not lying?" "Because if, if I was lying, your lungs would be full of cyanide gas." " Cool! So we get a new tank."
  14. IIRC, that's Howard Jones and "Life In A Day." (If I recall poorly, it might be "Life in ONE Day" and I may have the artist wrong.)
