I don't listen to music unless I'm singing or playing my drums... which is maybe once a week... But I did listen to a lot of music when I was younger and played in bands and stuff... :sneaky:
Hmm well I listen to a lot of music, but I was thinking more like playing...or composing, if that's your thing. Playing music is a huge hobby and something I love to spend a lot of time and energy on.

I think I don't listen to it much now because I can't really get into a lot of today's music. I do like a handful of new songs and artists like Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars, Pink, Taylor Swift.... and I like the new song 'Paparazzi' by Lady Gaga, but most of it doesn't appeal to me.

I never said that lol. The smartest people in the world are well read. That's why I can never be smart. :(
No, LYNX said you only know vapid and lazy women.

You said the women you know read, scrapbook, and knit.

So, Lynx must think reading is a vapid pursuit.

You live in LA, of course there aren’t women going to the shooting range and shouting “yee-haw” as they fire a few rounds while guzzling down a few brewskies.

Don’t let these guys get to you. The women I know don’t care for manly hobbies, either.

Some seem to have the hobby of finding fault with anything anyone else writes.

Yes, that is my hobby. It is called being a witch. The first letter substituted for a more appropriate letter, of course.

Interesting that you own this. It gives you pleasure of some sort?

I love the dark because my deeds are evil.

I can not claim ownership of this quote, it was on a movie and I liked it.

Hmm sure sounds like the movie copied the Bible to me:

This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. John 3:19

Sure, most movies have judeo-Christian morality. I think both Hollywood producers and Christians would be surprised if they knew.

I'm trying to figure out how promoting profanity, nudity, sexuality, etc are Judeo-Christian morals.

On the surface, movies are not Christian in nature- not overtly. Hollywood is not a Christian place. But the messages in movies, the themes, are generally Christian- good versus evil, sacrifice, etc. Take the latest animated Smurf movie, Smurfs: The Lost Village.

My sister and I took my nephews and niece to see it last year. There is a scene where the Smurfs could abandon Gargamale to his fate and let him drown in the water. But, they don’t. They have a confab about it and say “we don’t do this”, so they helped him- even though Gargamale turned around and tried to kill them.

At the end of the movie, Smurfette sacrifices herself for the safety of the Smurfs, but is resurrected. She is a Christ figure (this is not meant to be blasphemous, Christ figures show up in literature and movies frequently).

Then you have the romance movies, which mostly end up with one man marrying one woman- and you are sure they are in love and monogamous.

I am talking about the themes of movies, not necessarily the vehicle. I think people in Hollywood would be astonished if they knew it. I doubt the makers of Smurfs: The Lost Village set out to make a Christian picture- but it IS Christian allegory. My sister and I looked at each other in the theater when Smurfette was resurrected like “Did they KNOW they were making a Christian movie?”

This probably makes absolute zero sense to anyone but myself. I lack the ability to communicate effectively.

It's fair to say that some of the themes in secular stories--cinematic and otherwise--are consistent with Judeo-Christian values, and may ultimately be rooted in the same, but it's unlikely that they are used with any intent to promote or even reference the source(s). Calling any story with thematic links an "allegory" is a stretch, in my view.
