    You could have a hot nun I guess. Last semester the theater program at my college put on a comedy musical about nuns and there were a few cuties.

    But in reality I don't think that happens.

    Anyway Still Life, yeah.

    Jude - Very interesting new angle mate. I hope Akerfeldt is reading this. Perhaps he can clear this bit up for us.

    Great story. I heard something like that too... but I also heard something like the album being or having some anti-christian influence! :s :? Not sure though!

    That's actually the best summary of the story of Still Life I've ever read. One more reason for it being my favorite album.

    That summary by EXTOL has definetly brought me closer to Still Life. it's hard for me to try and find the story or concept in albums, it always has, but i wish EXTOL was still around so I could thank him for explaining this.

    Probably the only member with 100% of his posts being excellent and helpful.

    Besides, of course, our Grand Moderation.

    along time ago someone on opethforum.com told me that orchid, morningrise, MAYH, and Still Life are interconencted. i knew this was completely false at the time, but its somehow stuck with me because it would be awesome.

    edit: i found the original post. here:

    theres no validity, but its still interesting

    I remember seeing that....it was hilariously far-fetched and made no sense whatsoever :lol:

    Not to mention that his facts about Still Life are wrong :\

    Mmm, he gets pwned and dies. They aren't connected but an Opeth conspiricy theory, kinda like 'Paul is Dead', would be fun.

    I never would have imagined an old question about melinda would mutate into discussion on hot nuns...

    I love it.
