Linz's New Book
Is Edward Snowden a hero?
Hell yes! His actions were moral.
Hell no! Put him away for treason.
Yes and no. It's a grey area.

I have referred for some time to The Anti-American President as "Obamarx," for obvious reasons.

Fifteen-year-old Geneva Lewis, whose tennis ace father Chris wrote the Foreword to Total Passion for the Total Height, here plays the first movement of the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto, and demonstrates yet again that objectively, Rand to the contrary notwithstanding, Romantic music is the best — and she, Geneva, at so unbelievably young an age, is shaping up to be one of its best exponents.

Here is a recently retrieved fragment, the concluding moments, of an interview I did with The Great Pavarotti in Sydney in 1991, along with all takes of the promo that he graciously agreed to do, reading from his own handwritten script! My thanks as always to Gregster for putting this together.

The One Tenor is a labor of love for life-long Mario Lanza devotee, New Zealand radio and television broadcaster Lindsay Perigo. It's the bringing together of his best Lanza-related essays, critiques and interviews over the years, with significant new material exclusive to this book, including Perigo's take on the theory that Mario Lanza suffered from Bipolar Disorder.

I am going to keep this thread permanently blue-stickied, like Marcus's Global Warming thread, Philip Duck's UN thread, etc. It will serve as a repository for exhibits in my case that America has now become Airhead America indisputably—comprachicoed, cretinized, lobotomized, infantilized, collectivized, Slayerized, zombified, pomofied, Gramscified, Alinskyfied and generally filthified beyond recognition (from the Founding Fathers' Republic) and beyond salvation. It is not a cliff that America hovers atop; it is the abyss.

"The emotion involved in art is not an emotion in the ordinary meaning of the term. It is experienced more as a 'sense' or a 'feel,' but it has two characteristics pertaining to emotions: it is automatically immediate and it has an intense, profoundly personal (yet undefined) value-meaning to the individual experiencing it.

SOLO-International Op-Ed: A Second Declaration of Independence
When in the course of human affairs it becomes necessary for citizens to break the political chains that hitherto have bound them, and to reclaim the individual sovereignty which is their birthright, it is opportune and appropriate for them to declare the causes which have impelled them to self-liberation. We, the freedom-loving citizens of the United States of America, choose to do so at this historic moment.

1983 Wimbledon finalist and SOLO reader Chris Lewis is famous again. The California-based coach's comments on what has led to America's loss of tennis dominance—top-heavy bureaucracy and an ethos of conformism and anti-individualism—have gone viral:

As an unapologetic dinosaur I spend a lot of time in despair over Generation Airhead—that is, just about all "people" under 30, aliens in human guise who don't read, can't speak, and shuffle around like zombies to the jungle beat of headbanging in their iPods. With what unmitigated astonishment and pleasure, then, did I take in Te Koki School of Music's (under-30s, students) presentation of Verdi's Il Corsaro on Sunday afternoon. For once, Generation Airhead's favoured accolade, "awesome," could be employed with impunity.

I expected the Zimmerman verdict to go the other way. I expect the worst in all things in this abominably inverted pomo-world where Pamela Geller is barred from Britain while Islamofilth is allowed to run amok, self-defence is murder, murder is self-defence, perpetrators are victims, victims are perpetrators, justice is about "heart" rather than facts—and "heart" decrees that the white guy is always in the wrong and always a racist.

Robert Schumann made several attempts to write a piano concerto. Only one survived the cutting room floor. This is it, replete with rapturous rapport between pianist and orchestra. A sublime affirmation of "the grandeur of man," a radiant riposte to Islamofilth and leftist pomowankery:

Squillo, the Italians call it, the piercing quality in a voice that enables it to cut across an orchestra, the aural equivalent of a laser beam; squillo is what the Welshman Bryn Terfel has in abundance, as he demonstrated on Friday night at the acoustically challenging Michael Fowler Centre.
