ever go to a conference or speaker on buddhism? like jack kornfield or someone like that? they have this soft spoken, thoughful cadence to their voice an their voice sounds airy and ethereal. then they ask for questions from the audience and everyone who goes to the mic and asks a question emulates the speakers vocal qualities. it's nauseating and demeaning.
The first Time I landed in California a group of buddists tried to take me away at the airport and my friend came chasing me and he ripped up all my material and told them to get the fuck away from me. I guess it was a cult.
I've dabbled in Buddhism.....Buddha is just alright with me.... My defining moment was in Bill Murray's The Razor's Edge, the part where some old Master Monk sends him off into the Himalayas with nothing but a book of some immortal wisdom....after a while sitting and shivering and miserable, reading the book, he's all "Fuck this shit!" and he uses the book to start a fire to get warm.

i don't care about it as a religion. but what i noticed is that every buddhist i know and/or meet talks in that faggy white guy buddhist voice. the philosophy doesn't teach it. the religion doesn't teach it. but all the white people who become buddhists start talking like it. how come?
i married a buddhist and i've kind of been a buddhist since 1977 or so. not a good one but i try.
i have a manly voice by the way and don't hang out with gringo buddhists unless they have a vagina.
