What is Netalive.org?

Far from the maddening crowds, a place to kick back and lead an intelligent discussion in peace. We respectfully ask the braindeads to stay outside. (New here?)

Best Good All

I can only speak for the two countries I've lived in long enough to make extensive observations, but it seems to me that people have some severe brand-name issues.

The other day, a friend and I were mocking Japan's love of Louis Vuitton, which I have to admit I think is one of the ugliest brands on the planet. LV in Japan enjoys about a 90% mark-up on their goods (compared to what the same item would sell for in France), which means that small handbags sell for as much as 90,000 yen, or (...)

Just reviewing what I've written and what is being done here... I just want to shout at the ratings. The system is well put together. Ratings are a great idea. But it seems to me that the rating system isn't working for one simple reason - people DON'T RATE.

Why? Do people not read these topics? I spend so much time and energy writing these things... just read any of them... and it's terrible! One vote? One person read it? That can't be true.

Why? Is it laziness? Lack of (...)

Now obviously, anyone cannot and should not believe everything they read. In the court system, certain situations and with certain people, evidence and witnesses may all of a sudden "appear". With fame, accusations can and do come out of the woodwork. Law enforcement agencies haven't always been upstanding citizens. Powerful people can create guilt. For the children, I wanted to believe that Michael Jackson was innocent.
Just before I wrote this emotionally driven post, I read an (...)

Okay, so I had a going away party yesterday. I'm going to be going away for school, and so my mom invited a bunch of relatives and friends and fellow students over and made my favorite food (lasanga, mom makes the best ever)and it was fun all around.

The unexpected part? They brought presents. o_O My friends the Langs brought me a GBA game to play on the plane (Zelda, for I am a Link addict) and my relatives all brought me cards (many of which had money tucked inside). This just shocked (...)

Walls painted red
four times, and that's
all -
like the closets of
childhood
hiding places for our
frightened faces
the door is closed,
and everyone is there,
but not there

I have been sick for the past four days, and am quite sick of being sick. However, I have been busy. I have seen the movies "Garden State", "We Don't Live Here Anymore", and "De-Lovely". I absolutely loved "De-Lovely". Ashley Judd completely impressed me last year in her performance as Tina Modotti in "Frida", and I found her to be equally caught up in the role of Linda Porter.

I love independent films for their honesty and the tendency for cinematic trueness to life, and all its inherent (...)
