Is it sacreligious to sample lyrics from a legendary classic rock song to use as a chorus for a hip-hop song?

Apparently it is not if you transform the whole song into samba. The group Sambô lives mostly of that:

I like Brazil, so I'm okay. :) On a side note, I thought there were a lot of white Brazilians; about 47% are white and about 43% are mixed, I believe.

Moon Ring on 1st of October.

Last night around 1AM with a nearly full moon high in the sky, the largest and probably most spectacularly colored moon ring I have ever seen was formed.

And this is with all the accompanying light pollution of living smack dab in a city.

The apparent size of the moon was so small which made the nearly sky wide moon ring all the more impressive.

Oh James, you are making problems out of nothing. It's only natural when you live in a foreign country that you want to talk about your country. When I'm traveling, I want to tell everybody about Denmark too. It is like when you make posts about marxism. You have a thought and want to share it with others.

P.S. You do know that greek philosophy laid the foundation of western civilization, right? It is by no means outdated or insignificant.

My friend!!! 

I haven't had the time to enjoy a pipe for some time, but I aim to correct that this weekend.  Sad news though.  While inspecting my pipes yesterday I found a cracked shank.  I suppose I will now send it off and get a band placed on it.  Not sure how it happened, but everyone is a suspect!  Good thing it's a cheaper pipe.
