Hang With Friends

Come on in, pull up a chair!

Picture yourself spending some time with congenial friends, sharing your lives and pictures from your cell phones." They're curious about that cool game, song, movie, camping trip, art show, or other event that fascinated you. You talk about all kinds of stuff, poetry, styles, personal achievements, relationships, and bad days. You can share your inner child, and laugh together. They sympathetically listen to your feelings about serious topics like politics or climate change, even when they don't agree.

Personal validation comes from paying attention to one another, giving more than you get. Everyone respects you and themselves, despite our amazing range of personal tastes and interests. They'll tell you they don't agree with an idea or behavior without implying you're a bad person or somehow deficient. It's an "I'm OK, You're OK" kind of fellowship, where nobody tries to make himself look better by picking on somebody else.

Nobody here is into mind games. A discussion started with a loaded guilt-throwing question will be deleted.

This group is not intended to compete with other groups on topics they cover but to "fill in the cracks." Whenever a discussion dwells at length on a topic for which there's an existing group, we urge you to provide members a link to that group to continue along their tangent.

A comment is a shout-out, which will get lost in a few days, because the comment wall is just a random stack.

Please start a discussion to share stories, photos, and videos. Replies will pop up in your "latest activity" and a conversation can develop from the feelings and thoughts you contributed. Groups are built on discussions.

maggie and milly and molly and may (Edward Estlin Cummings & Eric Whitacre)

It's amazing what you discover when you go looking for something you had no idea you'd find.  On an impulse, I pulled up Eric Whitacre's website to see if he had created any new pieces.  It would seem that he has: a song cycle called The City and…Continue

Have you noticed that much of the discussion in families and with friends, in the print media, on TV, and now on the internet is in the Passive Voice? Many people whine, complain, gripe, accuse, blame, call names, ridicule, grumble, bitch, rebuke,…Continue

Something Beautiful – Nathan Phelps & Seth Andrews

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Nov 10. 7 Replies

And it is beautiful, too, indeed, I think some of Seth Andrews' best work.  Interesting point: rather than Seth's dulcet baritone doing the narration, this piece presses Nathan Phelps' deep bass intonation into service, bringing a different flavor…Continue

So, I am new to this group.  I read a lot on groups before I comment much.  Like to see how things go, test the waters, so to speak.

If I don't comment much, it isn't that I am not interested.  I am usually just trying to see if I have anything to add.

A religious hypocrite (interchangeable) would be right at home and among friends.

I just wanted to comment on the coming Rapture and say that I have done my share by setting up a filthy lucre recycling bin. That way those who are about to become the "dearly departed" can rest assurred that the evil of money isn't rubbing off on the greater community. Of course, I will be offering loans at the respected business discount of 22% compounded daily. Asides for that, I have waited impatiently for this day. At least the grounds will be clear for those of us without such understanding to gather it in peace!

Was at the theatre last night and saw "Tartuffe". There was a comment in the programme that put forward the opinion that a religious hypocrite/con-man like Tartuffe would not succeed in the U.S. if he was an immigrant. Any comments?
Comment by Lary9 on May 19, 2011 at 7:47pm'll all be over on Saturday, May 21, 2011 anyway. Who cares? Anyone else going to an "End Of The World" masquerade party? My daughter's giving one for friends and I'm invited. I'm going as a Borgia Pope..

@Kate - LOL, I have a blog cued up for 6pm UTC+14 called Prophecy FAIL! to deal with just that.

Sail Roz, I live in a drinking town with a sailing problem (lol), so I'm jealous. :P


On the upside, I have a day off today! It's a miracle. ;)

ROFL, Larry9. But next time please put your hilarious links in a discussion, so they will be more accessible, and people's responses will "go with" the links instead of being separate bits on the comment wall (where nothing is really connected).
