A membership card from American Atheists just arrived in the mail. I guess that makes me a “card-carrying atheist.”
Thought2MuchMake sure they don't forget to send you the 2015 edition of The Atheist Agenda.

It's actually quite a well-made movie, an insightful story, with four main characters whose lives are all intertwined in conflict and who all experience epiphany surrounding the same turning point, unexpectedly and ironically. The movie is "Le Passe". See http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2404461/ and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Past_(film).
HelvetiosThanks, it looks very well done!

HelvetiosI haven't watched too many French movies lately, hmm...Haute Cuisine is based on the life of the head chef in the President's private kitchen (she also goes to Antarctica). Almost completely in standard French. If you want to learn, you'll be fine with standard since that's the kind we're taught in the anglophone provinces.
As for French-Canadian, none come to mind. I'll let you know if I find an interesting one.

I'm watching a French movie to improve my skills with French language, so I can immigrate to Canada... Or I'll just marry a Canadian witchy woman.
HumanHelv, thanks for reminding me. Can you recommend any French-Canadian movies (en Français Quebecois)? I'm watching "Le Passe". See http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2404461/ and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Past_(film)

CptPicardTres bien. I wish you all the best in your endeavor to learn Francais. I'm currently going to school to major in French!

HumanBon chance, CptPicard! I took 2 years of college French, 25 years ago. I spoke Franglaise to mon chat for many years. I'm just trying to keep the sound of the language familiar to me.

Are you, are you, coming to the tree? Where they strung up a man, They say murdered three. Strange things did happen here, No stranger would it seem, If we met up at midnight In the hanging tree. - Just saw Mockingjay and I can't stop humming the tune...
SilentLonerIt was the best one so far, IMO.

I just saw two women in high heels at the agricultural fair. High heels at a frickin' agricultural fair! When will the madness end?
ThurisazProof for the existence of big-C conspiracies: Whoever invented high heels obviously hated women yet SOMEONE's working hard to keep them popular. :P

I am celebrating 15 years of FREEDOM from the fundamentalist Christian cult! I have now been FREE for as long as I was enslaved to the untrue, harmful, and destructive doctrines and beliefs of the cult. Glory!
HumanGlory, Bro! I salute you in your celebration! I'm looking forward to living to be 102 years old! We will celebrate again, then!

I did that thing where I join Netflix for the winter, and I was browsing movies to add to my queue, and there in the sci-fi/fantasy section is "Left Behind: the Movie" …it never occurred to me that that would get lumped together with aliens and zombies, but I guess it is just another apocalyptic world fantasy
FweethawtReminds me of the uproar about the bibles being shelved in the fiction section at Costco a while back.

crazyguy123Uh oh, I hope the fundies haven't all figured out that it's in the Sci-fi/Fantasy section. If they do, there's going to be a riot.

If I can get drunk, get in a wreck, die and then meet Jesus with whiskey on my breath, then I should be able to cram enough pot up my ass prior to cremation to last me an eternity in the hereafter.
Eugene39That's quite possible. :)

HumanBut if you get cremated, you'll become a human reefer and burn it all out!

“The average man does not know what to do with his life, yet wants another one which will last forever.” —Anatole France
gallwhile this comment seems appropriate one has to remember that the bible dictates what you will be doing with that next life... mostly it amounts to kissing ass...

In the beginning, before anything else existed, there was an Invisible Man (Col. 1:17). Glory!
