Who, besides peter Kropotkin is here that posted on killdevilhill back in the day? There used to be some here - Impenitent, Yopele, sangrain.

Does anyone know where the fuck sangrain is?

Does anyone remember anyone else from there?

"Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don't bother concealing your thievery - celebrate it if you feel like it.

Jakob and I, of course. WL, sporadically. Jonquil. Satyr.
"Someone may object that the successful revolt against the universal and homogeneous state could have no other effect than that the identical historical process which has led from the primitive horde to the final state will be repeated. But would such a repetition of the process--a new lease of life for man's humanity--not be preferable to the indefinite continuation of the inhuman end? Do we not enjoy every spring although we know the cycle of the seasons, although we know that winter will come again?" (Leo Strauss, "Restatement on Xenophon's Hiero".)

Oh, of course. Satyr had a different handle.....I really am getting old. Was jonquil, jonquil?

Haven't seen WL in a while.

Anyway, I knew there was more than I was accounting for.

I would love to find Raphael again. Anywhere.

Satyr, jonquil, and WL all had different handles. I prefer not to disclose any of them, though.

Aw, c'mon. I know WL's and Satyr's, by the way. If people think Satyr is a pistol now, they should have seen him then. Odd how I consider him an old friend, while he despises everything about my very being.

Jonquil? Who were you? Do I have to guess?

I'm sure I won't.

Ah, killdevilhill. wasted many an hour doing battle with Raphael. My wife once accuse me of cheating on
her because I spent so many hours online there. In some weird masochistic way, I miss that place. I will
give it credit because I was forced to become a better thinker because of it. Due to work and writing my
book, I doubt I shall ever have that much time again to while away the hours.

Speaking of Raphael, he is of course nowhere to be seen, but we do have Bob from the ol' days, who used to give the ol' fundamentalist a run for his money.

It was my thirtieth year to heaven
Woke to my hearing from harbour and neighbour wood
And the mussel pooled and the heron
Priested shore
The morning beckon
With water praying and call of seagull and rook
And the knock of sailing boats on the webbed wall
Myself to set foot
That second
In the still sleeping town and set forth.

Hello Omar,
Hello Faust
Sauwelios, you seem to know a lot about KDH, though I don't remember you.
At any rate, I'm feeling nostalgic today, so if any of the old crowd are around, hello and well met.

We had some good times back then, I hope these are good times for you now.

That thing I said about Satyr, jonquil, and WL also applies to myself. I do remember you, though I don't think we were ever particularly close (not even as adversaries).

Here's something I salvaged from a discussion between Raphael and another user. They were having a discussion on Alexander, around the time the Oliver Stone movie came out. Raphael was arguing that, because Alexander was a malakos (homosexual), he could not slip through Christ's narrow gate...

" 'Malakos' means first a soft grassy meadow then by application soft and gentle and finally around the time the bible was being written in Koine (common) Greek it was being used in a pejorative sense to refer to the weak soft effeminate men. Well so much for blessed are the meek. Wait a second wasn't Christ kind of a Malakos? He was after all much like a soft and grassy meadow, a place for his flock to lie down in green pastures, metaphorically that is.
Christ was not a Greek, Paul was not a Greek, none of the apostles were Greeks. They spoke Koine Greek which is a bastard form of Attic Greek spoken by the peoples conquered by Alexander, who was by no means a Malakos in his own language. Alexander the first over the wall, Alexander the great was not soft and effeminate and even less like a meadow. Alexander was more like a battle field strewn with the rotting corpses of the weak and meek defeated. Contrasted with the green pastures of Christ the difference is clear." (Collingsworth, "Re: Words and deeds".)

It's gotten bad reviews, and I was saddened at the time that (Romeo & Juliet director) Baz Luhrman's version which was in production in the same year was canceled because of Stone's one - but I liked that it included a perspective of Ptolemy, played by Anthony Hopkins, and I appreciated films general attempt to be philosophical and somewhat 'psychedelic' - to jar the senses somewhat.

Watching it yesterday, I wrote down a quote from Hopkins' Ptolemy.

"Of course it was a myth.... at least it started as one."

How much of reality has not started as a myth? What people put themselves through to compare favorably to myths; myths must be integral part of higher human self-valuing.

ELDRAS

Postby Sauwelios » Sun Jun 18, 2017 8:11 pm

Anyone remember ELDRAS? His posts would always start with: "From ELDRAS:"--as if it meant something, as if the poster was only posting on behalf of Lord ELDRAS, or some collective or something. (My notion of "Lord ELDRAS" may have been unconsciously inspired by Lord EMAP.) The content of his posts was always mediocre, in my opinion, and so was his English. But at least we would have been indulged in a message from ELDRAS...
"Someone may object that the successful revolt against the universal and homogeneous state could have no other effect than that the identical historical process which has led from the primitive horde to the final state will be repeated. But would such a repetition of the process--a new lease of life for man's humanity--not be preferable to the indefinite continuation of the inhuman end?
