What is your favorite quote?
I'd agree with you, if it wasn't you saying it.
It's how my mind works sometimes.
Still searching for the right brainy quote.
Never limit yourself because of others' limited imagination; never limit others because of your own limited imagination.
NASA Astronaut and Professor Mae Carol Jemison, MD
"If you deny any affinity with another person or kind of person, if you declare it to be wholly different from yourself—as men have done to women, and class has done to class, and nation has done to nation—you may hate it, or deify it; but in either case you have denied its spiritual equality, and its human reality. You have made it into a thing, to which the only possible relationship is a power relationship. And thus you have fatally improverished your own reality. You have, in fact, alienated yourself." Ursula K. Le Guin
I like this thread. Nice insight into the other commenters.
Here's my last quote of the day:
"You be home by twelve because nothing good happens after midnight."

No attribution for this one. But it is what I often think:
Women. Can't live with them. Can't live without them.
I love you, Minniesota! Sweet dreams!
Ellen DeGeneres is the 4th Idol judge!
I'll have to watch now
And now I won't be watching, so I guess we cancel each other out. I love Ellen, but by her own admission she knows nothing more about music than the average person. Well, the show already has millions of 'average' judges that vote every week. I don't think it needs one more. Thumbs down, sorry...
Mysty, are you really stopping watching because of Ellen being invited to be a judge, or do you have other reasons for being over the show? I guess I've always thought of the judges as being there in part to offer constructive/supportive feedback to the contestants, and the other half just for pure entertainment value. And since Paula was mostly there for sweetness and entertainment value, I feel like Ellen could potentially add a really refreshing dose of positive energy to the group. In short, she may not know much about music, but she's clever as hell and I think she'll make the show even more fun than it already is. And THAT is entertainment gold. I also predict that, from time to time, she will bring out the softer side of Simon, which should be a hoot.
Jules, I guess my interest in IDOL has been on the wane anyway, but everything about Ellen being there just feels wrong. I could totally be off-base, but I think she's too 'big' of a personality and will upset a sort of delicate balance. Also, there's just the over-exposure factor--I see her in the morning (if I want to), I don't really need to see her at night too. And despite her battiness I actually thought Paula gave the most musically constructive and insightful critiques of the three (or four) judges. I know everybody paid attention to how 'nice' (or batty) she was, but she managed to be nice and still be discerning. And I really don't want/need more entertainment--I like to focus on the contestants and the music, and the less schtick the better.
I DO like when they have guest judges--especially when they have strong music credentials...
And Ellen won't be falling over from whatever drug she's been ingesting. Or becoming incomprehensible.
So a lesbian is picked to join a show (that goes out into every straight living room in the world) and you stop watching?
I LOVE THIS COMMUNITY!!! ... we're soooo supportive of one another.
I see Ellen as being as knowledgeable about music as Simon Cowell, who only ended up in the biz because his father was a music industry executive.
Simon has always been a business man, with his eye on the bottom line. Both have good ears.
They couldn't find a lesbian in the music biz???
I'm LESS likely to watch because it de-legitimizes the show's premise.
but that's the problem with lesbian music/ian's ... other than Melissa, KD, Tracy or possibly Tegan & Sara ... the target audience of Idol wouldn't have a clue who the others are.
OK, but did anyone know who the hell Kara whatever-her-name was? (she's made SUCH an impression on me, lol).
I mean generally speaking the judges have not been all about name recognition...
but then I'm a music freak.

A lesbian is the rage of all women condensed to the point of explosion.

How about: "A lesbian is the desire of all women condensed to the point of incandesence."

Then I will tell you a great secret, Captain. Perhaps the greatest of all time. The molecules of your body are the same molecules that make up this station, and the nebula outside, that burn inside the stars themselves. We are starstuff. We are the universe made manifest, trying to figure itself out. And as we have both learned, sometimes the universe requires a change of perspective. ~ Babylon 5 Ambassador Delenn from the planet Minbar.

(From: Calle Visión, Dark Fields of the Republic: Poems 1991-1995)
"It isn't that to have an honorable relationship with you, I have to understand everything, or tell you everything at once, or that I can know, beforehand, everything I need to tell you.
It means that most of the time I am eager, longing for the possibility of telling you. That these possibilities may seem frightening, but not destructive, to me. That I feel strong enough to hear your tentative and groping words. That we both know we are trying, all the time, to extend the possibilities of truth between us.
The possibility of life between us."
between you and Minnie! Ahhhhh, that's better....
And who is it that you would like to be between today, dear Tex?
Between you and Minnie is a pleasure....
