Coffee and Cake


I have discovered that with coffee and cake, it is at least sometimes possible to shake off that feeling of impending doom that comes on a slow, stuffy, unexciting Thursday afternoon. I couldn't think of anything to do with philosophy today, so here is a selection of my best thoughts since the last post

* I should start putting some photos into this blog. If philosophy can be art, and the sky is green, then art can be philosophy also.
* People actually like advertising material
* Tsumanis are more effective than armies at giving us a sense of obligation to others
* Coffee and Cake are excellent in combination
* The Labour Party is pathetic, and I don't think I'll ever vote for them again
* Online shopping is still too difficult to do easily. There are no malls.

Tomorrow, my post will be better. I promise.

"The Story of Philosophy" By Bryan Magee illustrates the ideas of the great philosophers with historical art pieces. It works quite magnificently.

I’m a philosophy student at Melbourne uni, however my blog doesn’t focus so specifically on philosophy as yours does. Mine will also focus on politics, society as well as personal interests such as food and wine. Only got it up and running yesterday but I’m keen to start building it up, so I was wandering if you’d be interested in trading links. Address is
