Mornings with Meep: On Seeking Truth and Not Lying

Here’s this week’s morning with meep:


If the above doesn’t work for you, here’s a direct link to the video on Youtube.

The Dmitriev Affair

Jordan Peterson’s 12 Rules for Life book

My review on my first reading of the Peterson book:

I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from this book… and it wasn’t quite this. I came in thinking it’s about that list of 12 items, but it’s really not.

I’m going to have to think about this one a bit — what I really got out of this book were questions, rather than any answers. But this is a good thing to have in middle age. One can feel like you’ve asked the questions already, but nope. There’s still more. There’s always more.

I think this would be a great book for a discussion group – you could do a chapter a month. And you would never know where the specific conversation would lead… because the chapters themselves are like that.

It is still a very strange book. Somebody convinced me to read Nietzsche after I commented on the book, and I just got The Portable Nietzsche on kindle so I can take notes as I read.


Last week’s links:

Phew. What a week.


Enjoy some Depeche Mode:

Okay, that one was relatively recent, where you can see they’re all middle-aged.

How about a reaaaally old one from them, when they looked like babies

See y’all later!
