Uncleftish Beholding

Have you ever wondered what English would look like with all the non-Germanic words removed? Yeah, never. But here's an essay written by the late science fiction writer Poul Anderson called "Uncleftish Beholding" that sort of demonstrates the idea.

CBC Shakespeare Goof

In one of CBC Online's articles about expressing the election in Shakespearian terms, they have the paragraph:

NDP Leader Jack Layton as Brutus in Julius Caesar, asking his modern-day friends, Romans and countrymen: "Lend me your votes. I come to bury Martin, not to praise him."

Ugh, it was Mark Anthony who said "Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears," in his famous speech to rouse the people of Rome against Caesar's killers.

More Nostalgia

There's a Sourceforge version of the game classic "StarControl 2." Apparently they took the old 3DO code for the game and modernized it, so it works on Windows with DirectX. They also have remixes for all the old music in the game.

Blood Rayne

I don't know much about this movie, but I read this funny bit from a reviewer who probably didn't like it :)

"I'm serious. If I find out that you went and saw this film after I told you not to, I'll phone your friends up and tell them to go to your house and pour ants in your bed. And when you wake up screaming, covered in ants, you'll think 'at least I'm not still watching Blood Rayne.'"

Religion vs. Cult

Here's an interesting quote I read from a discussion on a mailing list:

"Cults are leader-centric. Religions are institutional- and doctrine-
centric, with leadership being essentially disposable."

It makes a lot of sense, actually.
