Babel



1 Now the whole earth had one language and one speech.
2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east that they found a plain in the land of Shinar, and they dwelt there.
3 Then they said to one another, "Come, let us make bricks and bake them thoroughly." They had brick for stone, and they had asphalt for mortar.
4 And they said, "Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top is in the heavens; let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth."
5 But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built.
6 And the Lord said, "Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them."
7 "Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another's speech."
8 So the Lord scattered them abroad from there over the face of all the earth, and they ceased building the city.
9 Therefore its name is called Babel, because there the Lord confused the language of all the earth; and from there the Lord scattered them abroad over the face of all the earth.

I've just downloaded it, have yet to watch it though. I'm in the process of watching "Bobby" which is said to be very good.

You should have kept is as black. Although the text is clearer now the colour matched far better in my opinion.

It's still fantastic though! I will need to do something with my blog to match it!

Jingoistic: You downloaded it?! How could you?! I wouldn't mind if it were some trashy movie, but 'Babel' doesn't deserve such a treatment. :( It is a sin to pirate such a wonderful movie!

"You should have kept [it] as black. Although the text is clearer now the colour matched far better in my opinion.

I agree; but two of my readers have complained that black hurt their retinas like how Crocs shoes hurt my eyes, so yeah...

Jingoistic sagde ...

Try telling that to China ;). It's not like they'll go hungry if they do, they get paid massive amounts of money as it is!

Besides, I only do it occasionally. If I want true cinematic experience I'll go to the pictures; If I want to just see what the fuss is all about I download.

Never mind Miao, never mind...

Mutley 我由您的Hicous 深深地移动! 我特别是喜欢"狗人咆哮..." 它有这样的成像和想像力。我写了Hicous 为您。它是关于深深地麻烦我的主题。 "Miao 请原谅我, 我想要最好的朋友乳酪因此中止删除我的commenties" 您认识Miao 删除了我的评论吗? 我交朋友。
Mutley I deeply deeply move by yours Hicous! I specially am like the "dog person roaring..." It has such imagery and the imagination. I have written Hicous am you. It is about deeply deeply troubles my subject.
"Miao please forgive me,
I wants the best friend cheese therefore stops deleting my commenties"
you to know Miao deleted my commentary? I make the friend.

Jingoistic sagde ...

Argh! He's like a disease!

Goes to show, you do not mess with Mutley. He WILL hunt you down and send his legions of followers to corrupt your blog.

I say embrace him ;)

gneake sagde ...

been meaning to see that one. now i have even more reason to.

btw cool change in layout. like the font especially, and your writing style seems to have somewhat changed a little. hmm. or is it because i have been away so long it just reads different.

Miao sagde ...

Jingoistic: Embrace him? I hope you didn't mean it literally...

Gneake: Do watch it! It is too wonderful to be missed. I shall describe it using only four words: Potent, poignant, powerful, poetic.

And actually, I don't have a style of my own. :( Have been exploring several syles and have yet to find one which suits me most.

Mu Tai Dong sagde ...

Mutley! 我认为Jingoistic 威力是快乐! 他似乎有积念。以拥抱您。好的盼望对您的拥抱!
Mutley! I thought the Jingoistic might is joyful! He has the product to read as if. Hugs you. Good hope to your hug!

Its interesting or at least concurrent that your blog when Mu Tai turns up again, is about Babel.

The people are not one and do not have one language, thats obvious enough. Maybe this is why the Lord scattered them etc.. Maybe some people just can't ever get on. But Mu Tai is still trying to build that Tower, maybe we could help her guys? What do you think?

Jingoistic sagde ...

Atleast you can switch from style to style, I've only got one and it ain't that great!

Miao, I think you should give those two another chance. Perhaps you should forgive and forget?

They are trying to make an effort after all... They seem sincere enough.

Mutley 不转换从样式对样式。他双极!
Mutley does not transform from the style to the style. His double pole!

I do have several styles, one where I admit to my true canine persoanlity and the other where I pretend to be a human and have my own place to live.

Hi!Thanks for sharing your URL with me-I love your writing style,it is so eloquent yet very accessible and catchy! I am going to see "Babel" tonight,so I'll be able to comment more tomorrow!

Aaron Lozier sagde ...

I've added your link. And I lied. I'm writing again........the disease that feeds my soul.....or something like that.

Miao sagde ...

Jingoistic: Actually I don't mind Mutley, he can be quite nice sometimes; but I am just worried that Mu Tai may steal my stuff again... And you never know if she may write untrue stories about me (which includes posting photographs of unknown males and claiming that they are me - and those males aren't even handsome!) >.<

The Wee Italian Chick: Thanks for your compliments! 'Babel' is one of the best movies I've ever watched! :)
