A Clockwork Orange

A Clockwork Orange was a weird movie according to Amber. But I liked it. I rate it 8/10.

Islamic Traditionalism

There was a great discussion about Islam and Traditionalism spanning several blogs. Please do follow the links and read it in full. There might be a quiz later. When I am less busy, I’ll pick up some of the threads here.
