Oft hope is born when all is forlorn

The Fellowship of the Ring I’ve seen the Lord of the Rings > The Fellowship of the Ring for the sixth time. I was driven to see the movie this last time, in large part due to the four minute trailer for the Two Towers that has been added at the end. The following passages …

Roger, Roger. What’s our vector, Victor?

This is Your Captain Speaking… You’re at the airport. You go through extensive “security”. You board the multi million dollar jet that must function flawlessly under extremes of speed, temperature and altitude so that you, your fellow travelers and countless people on the ground are not injured. You sit back in your seat in this …

Terror

Terror, terror, who’s got the terror? Have you noticed that terror is the new catch phrase being used to justify all means of inhumanity, (censorship and invasion of privacy)? How is the US defining terror? How is the US defining its policy towards terror? Are suicide bombings against civilians terror? Hasn’t President Bush’s doctrine on …

The Goblet of Fire

Mr. Potter… I finished the fourth Harry Potter book – The Goblet of Fire last night. Since last summer I’ve read all of the books and quite enjoyed them. But this fourth book has been the best since The Sorcerer (Philosopher’s) Stone. They are obviously aimed for younger readers but that said, the fourth (and …

Computer Weary

Upgrades Can Be Downgrading I’ve been burned out on computers for several weeks now. During the new year I added a new printer that acted like a virus and really messed my system for awhile. Since I had to fix many printer related problems I took the opportunity to upgrade my system from 8.6 to …

Dispirit of Justice

Attorney General John Ashcroft in front Spirit of Justice statue

Ash-hole Cash-hole This is like shooting fish in a barrel, but in case you missed it: from AP – WASHINGTON, Jan. 29, 2002: “(CBS) No longer will the attorney general be photographed in front of two partially nude statues in the Great Hall of the Department of Justice.

02-02-02 The Number of the Beast

Puxatony Phil Groundhog, February 02, 2012

Happy Ground Hogs Day everyone. Today also happens to be 02-02-02. I’m sure that numerologists are having a hay day with today’s date. Our primate brains are great at noticing patterns but unfortunately we also tend to try and make meaning out of those patterns where there is no meaning. Still, 02-02-02 looks neat. And …

Under Construction – In Perpetuity

Almost any good Web site should be considered to be constantly under construction and so no apologies should be made. However, I feel that I must make some apologies for the extensive construction to be found here. As I migrate over my old content, viewers are likely to find an occasional dead or not yet …

Welcome – 2002

Glen Green Dot Com - World View as it first appeared in January of 2002.

2002 – Welcome. Far above the Ephel Dúath in the West the night-sky was still dim and pale. There, peeping among the cloud-wrack above a dark tor high up in the mountains, Sam saw a white star twinkle for a while. The beauty of it smote his heart, as he looked up out of the …

Credit Where Credit is Due

I originally credited Ron Edwards for much of the inspiration for publishing a Web site. I now need to credit Teddy Carroll* for much of the inspiration for improving my Web site. I intend to take some direct cues from Teddy, such as a note on the book(s) I’m reading, the music I’m listening and …

The First Redesign

I’m going to try and rework this site a bit. When I first laid it out I put zero thought into structure or design. But since I have done a fairly faithful job of updating the site I’ve decided to try and tweak the site to make it a bit less sloppy. I still don’t …
