Being a brit I'm all for the strikers (once called the british disease). But the fact of the matter is the writers are the baseline creators. A fair days pay for a fair days work maybe a cliche, but it's a good one.

War and Peace. Conflict. I believe in Albert Einstein's summing up of the matter: "Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity. And I'm not sure about the universe."

Famine and pestilence. Old enemies, still going strong. See Albert above.

Cynicism. I do believe in it. But then I'm getting old.

Important belief. Laughter is the lubricant of life.

Things I don't believe in.

Religion (if there is a god, he/she is seriously twisted).

Spongebob Squarepants. (I reckon he DOES NOT EXIST).

Santa Claus. (He did exist, but I blew his head off last year. I will not have old gits clumping about on my roof).

Dancing, every day, whether you're getting paid for it or not, and whether or not you have an audience.

Hedonism, be it via sex, chocolate, exercise endorphins, or all of the above combined.

Dogs, mine or anyone else's. They are a better example of unconditional love than most people.

And I'm all for masturbation, always.

googlelinks... you have to wonder.


what does wear to a porn for peace party?

Anonymous said...

Singing, in my car at the top of my lungs or in the shower

Savouring simple pleasures-the feel of autumn sun, the sound of laughter, the smell of good coffee and baking bread

Hope- I'm not cynical yet. (Maybe I'm still too young:-) ) I believe in the hope of tomorrow. That we can change things, that better things are possible, that I can be a positive in this world. Cheesy, but I really belive it.

(and I have to second the hedonism, dogs, and masturbation!)

Kindness (within reason - after too many public displays of prickedness, one has to earn my respect again before I'm willing to be kind).

Awe (sometimes the little miracles are all there are - recognize them).

Trying not to buy made in China.
I did not think a thing about it until I watched a movie about Tibet. "Tibet, the Cry of the Snow Lion"
Horrendous at best, those Chinese.
The Dalai Lama had to leave Tibet in the 50's (I think) Recently he picked a young boy and his family to succeed him. In the lineage of Buddhist monks. Two days later, the boy and his family are gone (dead?) And the Chinese picked their own young boy and family to succeed the Dali Lama.
Watch the movie if you have a chance.

and
Visual art
Movies
Films
and the ocean.

Oh--chocolate covered cherries.

"what does wear to a porn for peace party?"

Err

A condom?

In fact, as my Grandma used to say:

"Nehm zwei, dem klein"

("Take two, they're small", although I don't think that's what she had in mind...)

At least

I HOPE it's not

MrHarlequin said...

Oh, and passionate about:

Voltaire.

The right to ignore Voltaire when it suits me.

The smell of chip-shop chips.

The freedom to make stupid people realise how stupid they are

The freedom to resent people more intelligent than I making me feel stupid

Good, I mean REALLY good coffee.

Any coffee (except decaff) when I can't get the above

Racism

Anything Italian, red and with an engine, except fire engines.

Laughing, making people laugh, being made to laugh.

Porn4Peace Official Wardrobe:

Hold up two fingers!

Quin said...

um, which two?

Actress Andrea said...

Following your dreams, no matter the cost.

The WGA strike - but also equally passionate about them finding a resolution soon (to benefit the writers) so aspiring actors/writers/directors, etc. can continue pursuing our goals as well. We respect picket lines, but need opportunities too.

A cure for Cancer, AIDS, and other life-threatening diseases.

Getting rid of ignorance

Family

Theatre and anything that deals with entertaining/inspiring others.

Raising all wages if the minimum wage is increased. The rest of us only suffer.

Lowering the price of a Broadway show so all walks of life can enjoy

Illegal immigration - I'm pro LEGAL immigration and following the rules

being passionate about SOMETHING - anything!
