Tagore: 'East and West'

This essay is by far one of the most beautifully written pieces I�ve set my eyes upon. There are some minor digressions, but mainly it is to the point and fully succeeds in explaining why the West is so far away from understanding the East. It was shocking to me how well this fit in with current western affairs in the Middle East & that�s why I decided to digitize yet another few pages of my mini-library. Leave comments if you feel the need; only the deserving will be bashed. Just kidding!

Rabindranath Tagore writes:

Today the real East remains unexplored. The blindness of contempt is more hopeless than the blindness of ignorance; for contempt kills the light which ignorance merely leaves unignited. The East is waiting to be understood by Western races, in order not only to be able to give what is true in her, but also to be confident of her own mission.

In Indian history, the meeting of the Mussulman (Muslim) and the Hindu produced Akbar, the object of whose dream was the unification of hearts and ideals. It had all the glowing enthusiasm of a religion, and it produced an immediate and a vast result even in his own lifetime.

But the fact still remains that the Western mind, after centuries of contact with the East, has not evolved the enthusiasm of a chivalrous ideal which can bring this age to its fulfillment. It is everywhere raising thorny hedges of exclusion and offering human sacrifices to national self-seeking. It has intensified the mutual feelings of envy among Western races themselves, as they fight over their spoils and display a carnivorous pride in their snarling rows of teeth.

Keira "Pancake" Knightley

Hollywood at its best
I think they had to hire an entire “Make-Keira-Look-Like-She-Has-Boobs” team (probably Indian programmers) to make King Arthur possible. Jax, don’t you dig this chick? By the way, is this movie worth $12 (includes medium popcorn)? If I ever did a Keira rating (I won’t anytime soon b/c she’s not in the big leagues yet), I would probably spend 90% of time contemplating what size of boobs Keira should have & what kind of roles she could land with each size. While we’re on the topic, on my boob job mailing list (I’m kidding, Melissa), I just heard Nicky Hilton got some crazy new upgrade—will have photo in time. I know, I’m going to hell.

Sweep the Leg

I just watched Karate Kid part one last night in an effort to build up some rage for a softball team. See, my roommates are on this softball team and they are team COBRA KAI. Yup they have the shirts and everything. Anyway, just wanted to say that they now call me Sensei Kreese cause I always yell at them. Well anyway, the movie is badass … except for the fact that “Daniel San” is a well pussy. Mr. Miyagi is fuckin badass … man I love that guy. And hey there would be no Karate Kid without Cobra Kai. 80’s cheesy but I love it!!!

My three favorite Cobra Kai scenes …

Funny …

I think its hilarious that we’ve been at this blog game for a while now … and usually we’ve got the regulars who come and chime in about stuff. We pretty much talk about everything on this site: politics, sports, inspirational, energy and etc. It only takes two posts about Ashlee Simpson and Britney Spears to cause some heated debate. Wow … where were these people when we were talking about important things that actually matter. I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.

Lenny Kravitz

Besides being the finest man with an outtie … hes actually really intelligent and seems pretty well rounded. I recently read and interview in Interview magazine (which by the way is a pretty sweet magazine, famous people interviewing famous people, Andy Warhol’s magazine if you didn’t know) and well I think he’s just cool.

“I’ve been dealing with a lot lately: that idea that our lives are surrounded by such beauty, and that’s what motivates us, and we recognize God and the spirit and all the wonderful things. Yet, at the same time, we have these problems with the flesh and the mind ….”

I’ve dealing with a lot lately too. But its true. Why torture yourself with what problems you have (as huge or petty as they might be, mine tend to be petty but I make them a huge deal) and realize what is going on around you. I drove down the coast this last weekend. Just to clear my head. Its amazing you know, the coast of California. Even just from Half Moon Bay to Santa Cruz. You see the world for what it is. You see beauty at its most untouched state.

I think Lenny Kravitz Rocks!

Outback Jack or Outback Pimp?

Ok, this guy is a total MILF pimp, if I’ve ever seen one in action (MILF Hunter is the only other one). For those who are not familiar with the show, it’s some cheesy reality show (that also has easy porno-conversion potential) that comes on TBS (btw, I haven’t flipped to this channel since the 90s when they aired Bulls games). What’s the premise, you ask? It’s basically about a few hot women who are probably in the mid-late 20s, but mysteriously have the MILFy appearance (definite butherface candidates—at least on the show, but I just saw their portraits & they are all pretty much hot except for Maria, Natalie, & Mary), who all hike around playing games in the wilderness w/ their hot-hunk of a guide Outback Jack (ok, I have no damn idea what the show is about, but it�s probably close to my last statement). Anyway, the MILFy women suit Outback Jack perfectly as he appears to be in his mid 30s & kinda shady lookin�.
