I have modified the lyrics to Star-Spangled Banner to take into account Airhead America's (and all of the West's) utter, suicidal capitulation to moronry and totalitarianism.

"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.

Kyrel Zantonavitch's new review on Amazon of my book, 'Total Passion for the Total Height,' prompted me to start re-reading the thing myself. As I made my way through the Introduction I became quite exercised by the trenchant accuracy of my own observations, and motivated to lift myself from the pessimistic funk induced by the horrors of which I write. It occurred to me that I'd never published that Introduction here. Here it is (oh, and of course, buy the book if you want more!):

"Freedom is the fundamental requirement of man's mind. ... A gun is not an argument."—Ayn Rand
In my recent presentation, stopped short by evil Muslims, at Auckland University I noted the propensity for evil Muslims in civilised countries to take advantage of freedom of speech to hold demonstrations where they sport signs saying "Freedom of speech go to Hell!"

With evil being more rampant than ever in the world right now, not least among those claiming to be among the good guys, it's timely to remind ourselves of the Number One repository of the Good: music from the Romantic era.

This is the speech I delivered almost in its entirety in my capacity as special commentator, along with Race Relations Commissioner Dame Susan Devoy, at Monday night's semi-final in the intra-university Next Generation Debates series at Auckland University. I say "almost in its entirety" because a gaggle of Muslims became very vocal near the end of my speech and demanded, successfully, I be stopped at once for having gone over my allocated time. The point at which I was shut down is noted in the text below.

2) Why is that piece of Islamexcrement still in the White House?!
3) I am reliably informed that a successful attack by Islamofilth (or anyone) on the US electric grid would cause nine out of ten Americans to perish. Is there any respect in which such an outcome is not deserved?

So Comey too is crooked.
Having laid out the case for prosecuting Lying Crooked Hillary for criminal negligence, the FBI Director then bizarrely and lamely concluded there was no case. She was, he allowed and devastatingly demonstrated, "extremely careless" in setting up an unsecured server and storing classified information on it; well, what is extreme carelessness if not "gross negligence"—exactly what Crooked would have been charged with?! There was no element of intent on Crooked's part (a ridiculous statement), added Comey; well, in law, there doesn't have to be.

Move over Brexit! Pauline Hanson, reviled by Filth, has just won a seat in the Australian Senate, and will possibly pick up two more once this weekend's election results become more clear. Note the biased "reporting" here by Fairfax Filth, including the insertion of the words "respected scientist" in square brackets when referring to a piece of Eco-Fascist-Filth, but rejoice in how it must choke them to have to inform readers of this delicious affront to their Left-Fascist-Filth agenda:

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.

One doesn't have to be a superstitionist to believe that the end-times are upon us. I'm an elderly atheist, and it's never been clearer to me that Good vs Evil is the defining issue of human existence—since from it existence vs destruction flows—and that Good is now being deluged by a tsunami of Evil ... meaning, mass destruction is nigh (and well-deserved).

There is no greater piano concerto than the Brahms Concerto No. 2. Except perhaps the Brahms Concerto No. 1.
At one time the conscientiously cerebral Stephen Hough favoured the No. 1. Then he came to prefer No. 2. For my money, there's not a lot between them except twenty-two years, with less explosiveness and greater serenity in the later work. Both are stellar exemplars of the greatest genre in music, the Romantic genre. Both combine the grandeur of a symphony, the passion of an opera, the tenderness of a love ballad, the torment of high tension and the rapture of repose. Both touch every emotion ever quickened by a beating heart. Both attain aching heights of sublimity.

If there were any flaws in the performances on Saturday night (April 16, 2016) by the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra—with conductor Edo de Waart, violinist Nicola Benedetti and cellist Leonard Elschenbroich—of Beethoven (Eroica Symphony) and Brahms (Double Concerto) then this reviewer couldn't hear them, and it would be churlish to mention them anyway, so sublime was the grandeur attained.
