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.

The Playboy Interview: Richard Dawkins

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Chris 18 hours ago. 14 Replies

I suppose it was the news that Playboy magazine was returning nudes to its pages after a year's hiatus that sufficiently perked my curiosity to check them out again.  I hadn't looked at Playboy since perhaps 2008, when I began to recognize that I…Continue

Such Lyrics!

Hello Friends,I was ruminating a bit today on my sixty-some years existence. My mind went back to teenage years when I first figured out religion is not only obnoxiously loud, but also nothing I wanted anything to do with. Truly. I knew by age 15…Continue

degrading love — part two (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Feb 11. 1 Reply

TheraminTrees set up religion with his left in Part One of his treatise on how religion demeans and degrades the value of love.  Here in Part Two, he brings in a devastating, "Mike Tyson" right, which negates and invalidates any claim that either…Continue

   It has been 6 month now since I signed up for Atheist Nexus membership. The past year has been sort of a bi-polar wave of emotions for me. I hope I wasn't offensive to the folks on here and I think I have been but I don't know to who. My desire…Continue

Men who challenge men to stop violence

Many men join in the effort to reduce violence against women and children and other men. He speaks of the need to place responsibility on men instead of focusing on women to stop violence. He offers a breath of fresh air, as do so many of the men on…Continue

I don't think I've ever seen anything Jim Carrey has ever done.  The last movie (DVD) I have seen was the second "Harry Potter" film.  *YAWN*  (And too much yelling n the beginning.)

Always been a Marx brothers fan, me. The right combination of verbal and visual wit. I grew up with more radio than telly so the verbal has been the most important. For instance, I love Blackadder but don't really care much for Mr. Bean.

Jerry Lewis was good in "My Friend Irma."  Period.  At least I thought so at the time.   I was 9 years old.....

Comment by Grinning Cat on January 20, 2015 at 9:51pm

Joan, thanks for sharing that clip!

There's a discussion in "How To Do It!" about embedding videos, with instructions on specifying start and stop times if you want to highlight just one section.

Carol Burnett was funny, AND she had a great supporting cast, and didn't hog all the laughs for herself.

Did you ever see the mini-series she did for CBS...."Fresno"?  A spoof of "Dynasty" and other prime time soaps  It kinda flopped, but I thought it was hilarious.

The whole thing is on YouTube somewhere.  I thought it was a riot because I've driven through Fresno too many times.  (If they'd done something like that here when we first moved to Burbank, it would have been just as crazy. There was a huge vineyard and winery just 1 block up the hill from us....tacky, tacky, tacky.)

Grossest and most puke inducing slapstick of all - Jerry Lewis.

Comment by sk8eycat on January 20, 2015 at 9:22pm

Lucille Ball was a talented woman, and I hated seeing her play an idiot.  I also never understood WHY "Ricky" loved her.

THEN Hollywood made one of the biggest mistakes ever....they starred her in "Mame" when she was visibly too old to play Beauregard's mother.   Gaaaahhh!

I want to share the first 27:47 minutes of this video. How do I do that? 

Matt Dillahunty vs. Israel Rodriguez: Whence cometh our Morals?

Comment by sk8eycat on January 20, 2015 at 9:04pm

I hated "I Love Lucy" and "The Honeymooners" because of all the yelling.  And the subdued slapstick.

Slapstick seems to be a man thing. In most cases.
