RIH (Rot in Hell) Fidel Castro!

Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Sat, 2016-11-26 08:38

Fidel was as eloquent an embodiment of the reality that those who overthrow dictators become worse if not constrained by checks and balances and a pro-liberty philosophy—and that absolute power corrupts absolutely—as Robert Mugabe, with equally disastrous results. Moronnials, pomowankers, Obleftivists and The Filth generally will be requiring counselling—in safe zones free from micro-aggressions and triggering and White Privilege—over his death as much as they do over Trump's victory.

"It's morning again in America," said Ronald Reagan when running for re-election in 1984. The facts and the voters backed him, and he was returned to the presidency in a landslide.

"We celebrate the life and artistry of the colourful, charismatic Mario Lanza whose portrayal of the Great Caruso inspired the Three Tenors and untold others to pursue singing careers. We are delighted to welcome the broadcaster Lindsay Perigo, a world-renowned authority on Mario Lanza.

"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.

Intro to 'Total Passion'

Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Sat, 2014-06-14 23:05

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!):

Free Speech's Fits and Starts

Note: originally written in 2007, this essay has been revised and updated to mark the 15th anniversary of 9/11 and to offend Muslims—Linz.

"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!"

"Magnificent Pandemonium"—Linz vs Muslims and Their Enablers

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Wed, 2016-08-17 03:12

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.

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?

Crooked Comey Means Amexit or Annexit

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.

A Second Declaration of Independence

I wrote this, and published it here, in 2009. The case for it is even stronger in 2016.

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).

A Tale of Two Universes

Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Sun, 2016-05-15 00:16

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.
