#145378 Ask a Mormon

Posted by remedysweet on 12 August 2011 - 12:35 PM in Religious Resource Forum

Indeed he does. Makes my answers seem like footnotes rather than the article. Hah.

Anyways, back on topic. Revan and I are still here to answer your questions about the LDS Church, so ask away. :)

You're welcome. Revan is like an LDS Encyclopedia. :)



#144186 Ask a Mormon

Posted by remedysweet on 09 August 2011 - 04:33 PM in Religious Resource Forum

To add to what Revan has said:

In 1st Corinthians 15, Paul is speaking to the Corinthians about the Resurrection of Christ and about the Resurrection of the dead. In the latter part of the section, Paul describes how those both living and dead will be resurrected and made whole. We will become spiritual beings. In verses 40-41 it reads:

 
40. There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. 

41. There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory.


These verses are the base for what Revan stated above about LDS belief in Heaven and the 3 degrees of glory we believe in.

I, too, am also here to answer any questions.

#142167 Ask a Mormon

Posted by remedysweet on 05 August 2011 - 04:25 PM in Religious Resource Forum

This question is 100% legitimate. Do mormons still beleive in poligomy?


No, Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints do not believe or practice Plural Marriage (Polygamy)

In 1890, President of the Church at the time Wilford Woodruff released a proclamation, the 1890 Manifesto, stating that the LDS Church would discontinue plural marriages. This caused a major riff within the LDS Church and led to many leaving the Church. By 1910, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day saints had and was excommunicating any and all who entered into plural marriages. Since that time, many excommunicated members and those who left continue to practice plural marriage (Polygamy.) However those individuals and groups are NOT affiliated with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

The Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is one of the broken off groups of Ex-Latter Day Saints who practice Plural Marriage. They are often called Fundamentalist Mormons and live in various states throughout the U.S. but mostly in the Western United States. They are NOT a part or affiliated with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Figured I'd give this a go.

Taken the night of the midnight showing of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, just before dinner with the midnight crew. Sportin' the homemade shirt and rocked the broken pen wand.

#131816 Deathly Hallows Part 2 Score

Posted by remedysweet on 18 July 2011 - 03:05 PM in Harry Potter

I think that this is an excellent topic. I like the new score although I do not think that any of the Harry Potter scores is better than the one for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, which was composed by Nicholas Hooper and featured many notable pieces such as Flight Of The Order Of The Phoenix, The Ministry Of Music, The Room Of Requirement, Fireworks or my personal favourite Dumbledore's Army, which sounds very well played by a solo piano. Alexandre Desplat, whose scores for The King's Speech or The Queen I liked as well, has done a good job on this film, but it is not one of those scores I could listen to for long during free time. It is good as background music, but features only few dynamic compositions with distinctive melody. The ones particularly to my liking are currently Statues (the scene was epic, was it not?) and Courtyard Apocalypse, but I got the CD only yesterday and did not have enough time to listen through all of the tracks properly.


Agreed about the Score for Part 2. I cannot listen to it for a long period, mainly due to the fact that it is definitely meant for background music during the various fight scenes within the movie.

Half Blood Prince and Order of the Phoenix both have excellent pieces that are quite memorable. It was nice to hear Dumbledore's Farewell during the pensieve scene in this movie, just a snippet of a past theme for me helps tie it all together. Of course, having 'Leaving Hogwarts' during the Epilogue was just the icing on the cake.

A friend of mine and I were talking and we both believe that if John Williams had come back for the last films, his music would not have had the correct feel or mood that was needed. Yes, he has done a range of music and movies and is one of the most well-known and popular composers of the 21st century. And though we would have heard familiar themes, his music fit the style of Chris Columbus rather perfectly and was easily carried over into 'Azkaban,' but even when listening to the 3rd movie's score it's lacking something. And I wonder if that's partly why they changed composers, even though they claimed it was for other reasons.

Doyle's soundtrack was alright. There were not any themes that really stood out (I do like his 'Sense and Sensibility' soundtrack though and just recently saw 'Thor' and he did a good job with that.) When Hooper came in, I was not familiar with him but he definitely impressed me with Order and Half-Blood. Both are Score's I enjoy listening to as a whole.


I also love John Williams, this song makes me so nostalgic! A Window to the Past from Prisoner of Azkaban does too.


Fawkes is Reborn is one of my favorites from COS. Thank you for that! And Window to the Past is the most memorable theme from POA and really the only one if I think about it hard enough. My favorite all time piece from any of the composers or movies is and will always be Harry's Wondrous World.



#131438 Deathly Hallows Part 2 Score

Posted by remedysweet on 17 July 2011 - 02:35 PM in Harry Potter

So, I'm curious to know how people felt about the final Score for the movie composed by the master himself, Alexandre Desplat.

As we all know, the music truly sets the mood for a film and Harry Potter is a wonderful example of doing exactly that. John Williams set a very high bar and honestly, Desplat has been the only composer since (at least to me) that I feel has really met that bar, with Nicholas Hooper close behind him for 'Half Blood Prince.' I'm grateful that they used previous themes in this one too from Williams and Hooper.

For myself, I was very happy with it. My favorites have got to be: Statues, Lily's Theme, and A New Beginning.

The singular haunting voice in Lily's Theme gives me chills.

So come and share how you feel about it.



#131437 I was afraid of this.

Thank you David Yates for using 'Leaving Hogwarts' and making the ending a true ending rather than half-arseing it.



#131433 Alan Rickman ~ Severus Snape

Posted by remedysweet on 17 July 2011 - 02:21 PM in Harry Potter

The first time I remember seeing Alan Rickman was in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves as a kid. He scared me then, but then I saw the first Harry Potter movie and I made the connection realizing it was the same person. I then saw him in Sense and Sensibility and that's when my love for him became real.

Alan Rickman is my ultimate old man crush and I hope my future husband can deal with that someday. :)

#125763 I was afraid of this.

Posted by remedysweet on 08 July 2011 - 06:00 PM in Harry Potter

It is a valid concern and fear. And I know I have the same as well, just because of the last track on the Score composed by Desplat. The music is composed after the film and whether you accept it at not, the Score of a film sets the mood for the film, those moments that we love most. And though it is beautifully orchestrated, it is lacking something and I half expected a variation on Hedwig's Theme toward the end, but alas, there is none.

I will not make any assumptions though until I've seen the film. But yes, I do have some fears and worry if it will really live up to my personal expectations. This is my childhood at stake, the entire reason why I came to love reading. But I'm sure no film could ever be more of a failure than Prisoner of Azkaban was. (Harry still doesn't know who created the Marauder's Map. And if they don't correct that in this film, I might start a riot.)

I also like the one with the quote from 'a good man goes to war' along the edge. I really do. I couldn't do that if I tried. Ha.

Ha, Knackered. I'm definitely adding that to my everyday vocab.

Could I maybe possibly request some Amy/Melody/River stuff? (Btw, Mid-Series closer, did it not just make you want to facepalm?)
