    Beautiful work. Some of those beings I have not heard of.

    What frightens you the most?

    There was a movie made not that long ago where two people are abandoned by the boat while scuba diving. They did not even have a raft and they were surrounded by sharks. It was pretty good, but I forgot the name of the film.

    I believe this painting was done by W. Homer??? If I'm not mistaken?

    What frightens you the most?

    It used to be anything with the supernatural; things like demons and hauntings. Growing up Catholic gave me a feeling that the devil was hiding in the closet ready to take me to hell. One documentary included supposed photos of real ghosts; ectoplasm and everything! I don't think I slept for a...

    Bears in celtic mythology

    Come to think of it, I do not think i have ever encountered a bear myth in Celtic myths. Important animals include deer, dogs, crows, stags, eagles, otters and salmon.

    New greek movie "the immortals"

    I saw it with my geeky myth-loving friends! It was fun and we had a good time. It is by no means a great film, but if you just want to see something fun and with a mythological theme, by all means give it a shot. We also enjoyed the Wrath of the Gods! The Immortals is in a similar vain: over the...

    Camp myth: a summer camp for mythological creatures

    Hmmm...maybe I could think of a few more. How to make a fire with the help of a dragon or phoenix. Swimming contests with merpeople.

    Checking robert graves' accounts

    I was told by a Classics teacher once that Graves' references are things he pulled out of his ass. (Although he did not use such colorful language).

    Camp myth: a summer camp for mythological creatures

    How about "Pegasus riding" that sounds like fun. Or staring contests with a Basilisk or Medusa?

    Barbarians sucking blood

    I don't know too much about this, but I did see a history program about vampires once. It did not mention this. The oldest vampire story actually is Chinese. According to one book on vampires I read, the whole thing was spured on by people examining the graves of those who died and finding that...

    I believe in Mesopotamian myth she is also called Lilith. In a myth called the Huluppu tree, she takes up residence there. Inanna implores the hero Gilgamesh to get rid of her.

    Check out this cool short movie about Cuchulainn. Music by The Decembrists.

    Cuchulainn is over the top! The way he transforms himself into a monstrous killing machine when he's pissed (Waaayyy before the Hulk). Beating the crap out of grown men when he was seven years old, getting his namesake by killing a huge watchdog, then acting as a watchdog for the smith Culann as...

    Cuchulainn! To me the most colorful of all the world's legendary heroes.

    Breastfeeding mothers

    I just spoke about this with someone today: a new mom. She says that 2 years is a good age to stop, but some kids stop earlier on. My choice of four years was arbitrary; it seemed to me that a 4 year old is a little old for breast feeding. But if I ever got married and had a kid (Hahahahaha)...

    Breastfeeding mothers

    Can't really comment much on this. First of all, I'm a guy. Secondly I'm not even a parent. I think breast feeding is still important, but this whole attachment parenting thing seems to me ridiculous. A mother should not give suck to a four year old.

    Superhero summer

    Shanna the She-Devil!?! Sounds awesome! I'm there. Wasn't there already a Shanna movie made way back in the eighties? With Tanya Roberts, the woman who was in Beastmaster. Oh wait, I think that was Sheena! :rolleyes:
