    Faves? Plugs? Recs? Thank god I'm Atheist Read it and Weep Pod is my Co pilot Yeah it's that bad the thinking atheist
  2. The mention of documentaries in the No Place Like Home thread got me wondering if anyone would share their favorite cult/fundie documentary recommendations. Bonus if they are on Netflix! When I was in college i watched Jesus Camp and found it fascinating. I would like to watch it again. My roommate had an upbringing similar...lots of social pressure, even for kids, to speak in tongues and faint and all that. She found it very stressful to watch. There were some interesting scenes involving a liberal Christian radio station out of the Midwest somewhere and I remember wanting to research it. Anyone?

    Sewing Machine Shopping

    Can we discuss buying a new or used machine? Thoughts, ideas, things to avoid? I've got a machine - $6 find at a rummage sale - but it's temperamental at times and I'm thinking it will need to be replaced at some point. And I'd rather replace it before I have to, if you know what I mean. Don't want to be in the middle of a Halloween costume or class-play outfit when it decides to implode at midnight or something. Right now, I've got a White brand, probably from the 80s. I lucked into finding it dirt cheap, and I've gotten $6 worth of work out of it, not to mention the bobbins and thread and elastic it came with (those were probably worth $15 anyway). I don't need or want anything too automated, I figure it's just more possibilities for breaking down. I wish I'd bought one of the old machines that the Home Ec department was getting rid of, way back when I was in high school, but I didn't.
  4. I have an idea, it's wonder woman related because, of course it is (little one has put in her Halloween costume request). But I need blue fabric w/white stars...but NOT on cotton. So this, on something slightly silky (also not stretchy spandex): http://www.amazon.com/Cotton-Print-Whit ... tar+fabric The only place I've come up with something that fits the bill is Spoonflower...which is a bit more than I want to spend right now. suggestions? (I *do* have an independent fabric store in town...I need to get there this weekend)
  5. In the "10 things" thread in QFC, wtyclf asked for recommendations of YA fantasy and science fiction because she and I both like this genre. We think it's fun to escape from all the academic literature and professional documents we are required to read and devour some fun stuff. My oldest niece and I are currently reading the "Mortal Instruments" series by Cassandra Clare. Are any of you reading books in this genre? Do you have any recommendations for us? Embarrassing admission: I started to read "50 Shades of Grey." Hubby brought it home to me because someone had left it in a shopping cart in the Costco parking lot and after reading a few chapters I realized why it had been abandoned. The book sits unfinished in my bookcase. I will take it to the reading exchange at work for some other sucker ... er ... reader.

    Can you recommend your favorite music?

    My music collection is starting to bore me to tears. Can you recommend some groups/albums/etc. for me to check out? I have pretty eclectic tastes; I generally don't enjoy hip-hop, r&b, punk rock, or new country (though I like Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, and some stuff like that). My top ten, in no particular order, are: The Black Keys, Madrugada, Amy Winehouse, Bob Dylan, Fiona Apple, The Grateful Dead, Marina and the Diamonds, Old Crow Medicine Show, Rumspringa, and The National. Thank you in advance for your recs!

    Post a youtube

    I always love seeing FJists' music choices, so please post what you are listening to. I am on a folk thing at the moment strangely. It's like comfort music for me. (Hope these work) PqbI6UyVimQ That one's in Scots so Americans might struggle a bit with it. Quick translations: tak' tent o = take note of or pay attention to swart supper't = they fed him enough food heid bummer = like "high heid yin", it's a contemptuous way of talking about a boss wheeched = it's like grabbing or snatching something. "He wheeched it awa'." nae mair = what it is in English, "no more" ken't = knew. "Ken" is "know" in Scots. So for example "Ah didnae ken" means "I didn't know" gey close tae scunnert = the best way I can describe this is "He was really near to being in bad trouble" but Hulett means it as "He nearly died". If you're scunnert, you're fucked, basically. ower blaistart = they were very excited and angry (there is not a clear translation for this, I don't think). Ilk wey = every way (the lyric says "every way the government turned they were in trouble", as best as I can translate) Hopefully other Scots can explain better than me Here is a nice song in English after that. This is very popular on the Left, strangely. a0UA2UjJYbU And a hymn, to fit in with the tone of the board. (A very nice one) SmDwjDiDXb8 A personal favourite (I apologise in advance for this. I really am sorry. It just gets stuck in my head) nHY14OVk7r0 Now I would like to hear your YouTube favourites
  8. I really like books that are part of a series, I like them to be "lighter" than, say, War and Peace. I loved Harry Potter & Song of Ice and Fire Series, didn't care much for Artemis Foul, like mysteries with strong women detectives, and books that have a little bit of humor. I'm not above reading YA Fiction, the last series I read was the Sammy Keyes novels, just waiting on the last few. Thank you in advance!
  9. I have been in the mood to read them lately.
  10. What good movies/tv shows/documentaries are out there that I should see? I feel like I am in a netflix rut. Feel free to throw in indie stuff, lesser known. I'll watch pretty much anything if it is good.
  11. I just started reading Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

    Romance novels

    I used to be a big fan of Elizabeth Lowell, infact, her Donovan series remains one of my all time favourites (still unfinished), but I'm finding her recent work boring one book is a carbon copy of the book before. Sad :(. I don't think I've finished her last 3 books. I do still like her Rarities Unlimited but she isn't writing many of them at the moment. Same for Nora Roberts. I loved her Quinn Brothers quartet and her Blood Brothers trilogy (although it got very silly towards the end), and some of her standalones are not bad but I'm over her JD Robb stuff and I haven't bought a book new off the shelf in years. I just get them from the library now, saves on dissapointment. SO, I need a new author or several! I like strong women, I don't mind a bit of sex, I like a decent plot and the romance should be believable and fun. Any ideas/recomendations?

    Titanic Books

    OK, I'm on my 3rd Titanic novel in a week. So I want to do a Titanic summer of reading. I like novels, survivor stories, and non-fiction. I remember someone here considers herself a Titanic expert/nerd. She posted when we were discussing in the Doug the Tool's Titanic thread. So can she or anyone recommend some good books to me? Thanks!
  14. In the Twilight thread over in QFOS, atheistjd asked what the best Tamora Piece books are. I, for one, have always been partial to the Alanna series. What other books in the young adult genre are people reading and enjoying?
  15. So, I have to read a book and write about it for one of my classes this semester. I'm not sure which one I want to choose, but I have a few choices from the list of acceptable choices that look interesting. So of these ones, which would you choose? The Alchemist - Paulo Coelho The Timetraveller's Wife - Audrey Niffeneger The Lovely Bones - Alice Sebold The Life of Pi - Yann Martel The Poisonwood Bible - Barbara Kingsolver Thanks ahead of time!
