Quote from Basil the Great

Stanley Hauerwas: Interesting point

Hauerwas was debating a medical researcher who was defending experiments on fetal tissue. "What if it were discovered that fetal tissue were a delicacy?" Hauerwas asked with his trademark Texas twang. "Could you eat it?"

how i spent my thanksgiving vacation
music: Daniel Amos, George Winston: December, BNL, Dave Matthews: Busted Stuff
Movie: Remains of the Day,
This is probably one of my most watched movies. I love the performances of emma thompson and anthony hopkins. It's one of the most haunting movies I've ever seen and it draws me in I think, because it deals with familiar struggles such as the balance between passion and order/ restaint and expression. Hopkins is unmatched as a listener on screen. the metaphors are abundant. this film reminds me to serve faithfully and observe the master. test authority and don't simply become overwhelmed by the mundane (polishing the flatware) and miss the larger arena in which we live.

The music is absolutely incredible.

more later. i must work.
