Kit’n is my friend. I couldn’t have said it any better. Thanks my friend! [/quote:2oqo134x]
Not a problem…
I really don’t see what the big deal is. So you have to order the CD internationally… so did anyone who wanted the other copies of Zeitgeist who didn’t live in the US. A few of us bitched and moaned, but we got over it. I personally find it kind of rewarding finding it on the internet and ordering… it’s almost like finding the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow… you just get a feeling of accomplishment. You know that you’ve got something rare that not too many people have gotten their hands on around you. And if you’re like me you gloat, and then share it with your closest Pumpkin friends. So as long as we can all get our hands on the copies one way or another, again… what’s the big deal? As much as I love the Pumpkins (which is ALOT), there are more important things in life to get upset about.
Peace and Love,
Well, I’m pretty happy that album is available to us non US peeps. After all of the other Zeitgeist copies were only available in the US, I think it’s a good way to make it up to us. I had to get the special edition DVD off of Ebay because I couldn’t buy it in Canada… this is a nice change. I guess I’m just happy I wont have to buy it off of Ebay again. If someone asks nice, I can see if I can mail them a copy.
Luckily I have found all of this information out on the Special Edition Zeitgeist DVD… unfortunately I haven’t watched it in a few weeks and can’t quite remember all the names of the places… I’ll have to get back to you on this one…
Wholy crap you guys are hardcore…
BleedingTheOrchid: Wow, he looks… how do you put this nicely… chubby.
Yeah I’ve heard of that book before… I should really pick it up. I could talk philosophy for hours, I just love it… it’s all, what if’s… makes you really open your mind.
I have a few comments about ‘free will’. From studying various religions I have come to the conclusion that everything happens for a reason, even the bad things. See, the bad things give us a reason to appreciate the good things in life, and we always learn from our mistakes, which is the important thing. I think tragedies can have great outcomes. For example, the child who has lost her mother to domestic violence that grows up to be an advocate, and eventually saves lives. Another example, the musician who is abused as a child, deals with his pain through poetry and songwriting, only to release amazing music that he might not have been able to write if it wasn’t for his life experiences. So basically, I’m saying that we do have free will, we can choose the easy path, or we can choose the hard path… learn the lessons we need to, and move on.
You know what I wonder sometime… I wonder if THIS is reality. I mean, people ask to prove there is a God, but I ask you… prove there is existance. How do I know that I am actually typing this right now? How do I know this isn’t all a dream, that this isn’t all in my head. I know it’s a really crappy way to compare, but think of the matrix… the field of people hooked into the ‘system’… how do we know we aren’t in a similar situation? How do I know you even exist, how do you know I exist? This is where it gets DEEP!
Wow, this is turning out to be a great debate, and with no fighting… I’m loving this! I’ve dabbled in all sorts of religions, trying to find my place in the world… never really figuring out what to believe, sometimes I do feel a bit lost. I find myself really interested in Christianity, but never quite convinced. I love your arguements TreeSpirit about evidence… quite compelling. But what I find most impressive is how both sides have agreed to disagree and are peacefully debating their sides. My hat is off to you guys! I think the world leaders could learn so much from this type of discussion. Perhaps then there would finally be peace.
I’d love it to be either ‘Bleeding the Orchid’ or ‘7 Shades of Black’… that would make me very happy.
âLove is always patient and kind; it is never jealous, love is never BOASTFUL or CONCEITED; it is never rude or SELFISH; it does not take offense, and is not resentful.
I love that quote it’s from ‘A Walk to Remember’, awesome movie.
BleedingTheOrchid: Where did you get that from? I’ve never heard it before…
Can you guess which one is Billy?
Not a problem… far right.

Anyone who wants to read some of my poetry can go to my website below and look in my blog, I have about four posted in there…
I love how he says: ‘This is the kind of relationship I’m looking for’ right before he does the accoustic of Perfect. Just more proof that he’s single.
Right on, it’s not blocked on my computer at work!!! **knocks on wood**
Woohoo! I got my CD/DVD in the mail yesterday! I had to buy it off of eBay as it’s not available in Canada… I got a good deal, and it was worth every cent. The DVD was great, and I love the new song! I see what they ment by ‘can see why it’s not on the original cd’. It’s got a totally different feel to it, but it’s so nice! I love hearing new music, let’s hope a new album will be coming soon!
Man, I still don’t have my CD yet! Still waiting for it in the mail… I’m sooo eager now that you guys say this song is really nice… I might have to see if I can find it on the net.
