Thursday’s Topical Tête-à-Tête:
Welcome to another Thursday with Patrick Tulley; again he has written another engaging article, I hope you enjoy it as it is an interesting read.
Warning: Please note this video link contains disturbing images of a child being beaten.
Well many of you have perhaps been made aware of the video above that went viral last week of the judge beating his daughter with a belt. The video goes on for almost 8 minutes. At first I was unable to watch past the second belting, but I finally watched it today in preparation for this post. There is so much to discuss in this video for just one post, but I’m going to relate it to my own personal experience of being beaten myself as a child. The reason that she was given a beating it seems was because she installed a peer to peer program which allowed her to share music files with other users on the internet. Her parents saw this as stealing, which is the justification for her beating, under the guise of discipline As to the rights and wrongs about what she did is not really my question here, since I’m not aware of any punishment we mete out to adults that involves hitting them.
…I Listened to What you Say…
(Let’s celebrate the new look with a cake.) This is a very quick blog post as I am very tired and also very excited to share this bit of joyous news! I know the previous blog theme has caused viewing difficulties for some of you and I have been looking into this for a long while; today I want to do the grand unveiling of the new theme. There are still some kinks to iron out; but I’ll get there eventually (maybe a few more scheduled maintenance works are in order; let’s wait and see). In the meantime, I have added some new imagery (artwork from a while ago) and also some photography. I will no doubt edit these as time passes by; but I just wanted to share a little something with you as I absolutely ADORE my new theme! If you share the same enthusiasm too then please give a shout out in the comments box below.
Frivolous Fun Friday:
Today I was hoping to do a bit of analyses of the dialogues and see if my theory worked; however, we are two dialogues short (one I will share with you below, the other I’m looking into seeing how I can make it work before we start to analyse the theory). Due to life’s uncertainties, Cynthia has been unable to continue with the game (I hope whatever it is will sort itself out Cynthia). Having said that, I have been in contact with Cynthia (she has kindly sent me her first dialogue so I can post it here on her behalf; however, the final dialogue is still aloof (I’ll let you know how I fair with this)). Please find below Cynthia’ dialogue to her own character(s) profile (there’s a brief recap of the rules etc for those who are not familiar with the game).
