Mythology Club People telling stories, the old fashioned way

Tuesday, July 20th, 2010

Irlike IconsTwitter is great, because people share so much stuff, this morning I saw a tweet from Jyri Engeström, of Jaiku fame, and his tweets always gets my attention.

This morning even more so, this is what @Jyri tweeted:

For all you interested in the Mythology Club, @kio_pio who started it has created a page explaining how it works: http://bit.ly/cvK7Cu

That resonated with me, so I checked out the site’s about page http://mythologyclubnyc.wordpress.com/about/, the basic idea is outlined the abstract:

What Is Mythology Club?
Mythology Club is a sporadic gathering of people who like to tell and listen to stories. It’s myths as they were meant to be, it’s a sociable way to get some literary and historical awesomeness in your life.

Here’s how it works. We get together for an evening of mythological storytelling and lots of booze. So far it’s been a group of 15-20 people, with between 4-6 people as storytellers each evening.

If you’re a teller, you pick your favorite myth/classical tale (from any culture), and you tell your rendition of it to the assembled throng. The definition of myth is loose. It could be from a classical tradition like Greek, Egyptian, Norse. It could also be the Ballad of Stagger Lee, or your own whopping fish story if it’s personal classic. The main thing is that it has a ritual quality that comes from repeated telling, and you make it yours. You don’t have to be an expert storyteller. We’re a friendly lot.

Doesn’t that sound like great idea? I mean I know of similar concepts, like BestTellers, but they tend to be less inviting, and the storytellers tend to be professional

Mythology Club has a BarCampy feel to it, and it might, eventually, turn us into pros.

So who’s first to syndicate this? I think Mythology Club Copenhagen has a nice ring to it, and YES I’ve already picked my first myth, for hints look here: Kong Skjold 😉

iRLike [ir-like] – taking the facebook iLike metaphor IRL

Sunday, July 18th, 2010

Irlike IconsI’m a big fan of facebook’s iLike metaphor, it’s so great that you can only give positive feedback.
I think that the positive-sharing culture that facebook, and most other social networks, are facilitating, is exactly what we need to combat the crisis that I feel that has been rampant since 9-11.

So recently I’ve taken the positive-sharing metaphor to real life (IRL), and it has worked quite well I’d say. I’m calling this to IRLike or iRLinking.

I get the best feedback when I iRLike tattoos, everyone seems very flattered, I guess that has something to do with the fact that getting a tattoo sends a signal that you’re confident crossing barriers.

iRLiking jewelery, usually works quite well too, but I don’t think I’ll iRLike teenagegirl’s jewlery again, it is sending mixed signals.

The idea here is to reengineer reality in the spirit of positive sharing, much like facebook has done, and then log-off and have some fun, people!

HAPPY iRLiking!

Dagens Tekst 18-Juli-2010 Kristendommens “blanko-check”

Sunday, July 18th, 2010

Dagens tekst for den 18-Juli-2010 indgår Paulus Brev til Romerne 8,1-4

Har det nok “lidt” svært med Paulus, men det lyder da dejligt, og set ude af den samlede kontekst, er det jo her det jeg vil kalde Kristendommens “blanko-check”, bliver udskrevet af Paulus:

Epistlen skriver apostlen Paulus til romerne: Så er der da nu ingen fordømmelse for dem, som er i Kristus Jesus. For livets ånds lov har i Kristus Jesus befriet mig fra syndens og dødens lov. Det, som loven ikke kunne, fordi den kom til kort på grund af kødet, det gjorde Gud: Han sendte sin egen søn i syndigt køds lighed og for syndens skyld og fordømte dermed synden i kødet, for at lovens krav skulle opfyldes i os, som ikke lever i lydighed mod kødet, men i lydighed mod Ånden. Rom 8,1-4

Kilde: Bibelselskabet

Ved nærlæsning siger det jo blot at Ånd er højere end kød, så helt frit valg er der jo ikke på hylderne, men frelsen er garanteret hvis man følger “Rabi” (lever i lydighed mod Ånden).

Det gør det jo ikke just lettere at være Kristen, da der er rigtig mange hylder at tage ned fra.

The Girl From Ipanema

Saturday, July 17th, 2010

I love this song, below are the lyrics, in English, and the chords – yes now that I have a guitar, again, I might give it a shot 😉

Jobim Antonio Carlos : “Girl from ipanema” Guitar chords

Writer:Vinícius de Moraes and Norman Gimbel (English lyrics)
Composer:Antônio Carlos Jobim


Tall and tan and young and lovely, the girl from Ipanema goes walking
And when she passes, each one she passes goes – ah
When she walks, she’s like a samba that swings so cool and sways so gently
That when she passes, each one she passes goes – aah

Ooh But I watch her so sadly,
How can I tell her who loves her,
Yes it would give his heart gladly
,
Tall, and tan, and young, and lovely, the girl from Ipanema goes walking

And when she passes, he smiles – but she doesn’t see
(Ooh) But I watch her so sadly, how can tell her I love her
Yes I would give my heart gladly,
But each day, when she walks to the sea

She looks straight ahead, not at me

Tall, and tan, and young, and lovely, the girl from Ipanema goes walking

And when she passes, I smile – but she doesn’t see (She just doesn’t see, she doesn’t see)

Ist er nicht der Zimmermann, Marias Sohn, und der Bruder des Jakobus und Joses und Judas und Simon? Sind nicht auch seine Schwestern allhier bei uns? Und sie ärgerten sich an ihm.

Livssceancer

Saturday, July 3rd, 2010

Endnu en dag hvor Han har det som sad Han på ubestemt tid
Og konstruktive tanker bare kommer og går i Hans hovede der føles alt for lille
Honey gid du gad droppe forbi, en times tid eller to, og sku’ du få lyst til at bli’
Så er det OK med Ham, lige indtil døden skiller
Honey sig du gider, dele dettte herlig liv med Ham
Fremfor at Han og Hun skal sidde og kukkelure hver for sig
