Dictionary.com word of the day for Jan 1, 2008
 
I get the word of the day sent to my email- here's today's (how cute/darling/fitting, since it's american gothic times and all):

Word of the Day for Tuesday, January 1, 2008
Zeitgeist \TSYT-guyst; ZYT-guyst\, noun:

[Often capitalized] The spirit of the time; the general intellectual and moral state or temper characteristic of any period of time.

The best writers of that predawn era were originals who had the zeitgeist by the tail.
-- Gary Giddins, Visions of Jazz: The First Century
As most critics and all professors of cultural theory note, Madonna is nothing if not a skilled reader of the zeitgeist.
-- "Techno 'rave' just the same old Madonna", Chicago Sun-Times, March 3, 1998
Besides, the zeitgeist seems to be working against any hope of Hormel officials to limit...the usage of [the word] 'spam' on the Web.
-- Gracious Concession on Internet 'Spam', New York Times, August 17, 1998
Like other figures who seem, in retrospect, to have been precociously representative of their times, Kerouac was not simply responding to the Zeitgeist, but to the peculiarly twisted facts of his own upbringing.
-- Jack Kerouac: The Beat Goes On, New York Times, December 30, 1979
Zeitgeist is from the German: Zeit, "time" + Geist, "spirit."

Actually I doubt mayday has any real knowledge of the bible.

totally agree with you.i dont see the point of people being on a smashing pumpkins forum if all they do is complain about billy/pumpkins.
dont listen to them/him if you dont like the music.

smashkin33 01-02-2008 08:18 AM

I don't see the point of people being on a netphoria forum if all they want to do is complain about people complaining about billy/pumpkins.
Don't read the forum if you don't like the netphorians.

today's word of the day isn't that great.

faineant \fay-nay-AWN\, adjective:

1. Doing nothing or given to doing nothing; idle; lazy.
2. A do-nothing; an idle fellow; a sluggard.

Yet if nonhunters ever knew how many properly dressed, entirely palatable big-game carcasses wind up in dumpsters because someone was simply too faineant to butcher and cook and eat an animal he could find the time and energy to shoot and kill, hunting would be in even greater jeopardy than it is today.
-- Thomas McIntyre, "The meaning of meat", Sports Afield, August 1, 1997

redchandelier 01-02-2008 11:26 AM
