That thing came to New Zealistan yesterday, apparently, hard on the heels of Obama bin Laden. Evidently, Comrade Clinton forgot to apply her usual barrow-loads of make-up.

Berlioz, Debussy and Ravel
New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Edo de Waart, with Sasha Cooke (mezzo)
Michael Fowler Centre, April 21

Things got underway in a rather puzzling fashion on Saturday night at the Fowler. With the obligatory preliminaries over—switch off cell-phones, join the players in the bar for drinks after the show, etc.—the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra appeared to spend the next eight minutes repeating its tune-up routine and not quite succeeding at it.

It's Official: New Zealand's Prime Minister Declares Her Country a Shithole

In more enlightened times, within the living memory of many of us, Reaganomics, Thatchernomics and Rogernomics went some way to restoring the characteristics of First World status to the United States, Britain and New Zealand respectively.

Momentous Mahler

Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Mon, 2018-04-09 03:14

It is said of Gustav Mahler that as a conductor he was a despot and a perfectionist. "To him there was no such thing as a minor detail," Harold C. Schonberg writes. "... Mahler would not tolerate inattentive or careless playing. Never in his life did he encounter an orchestra that satisfied him in his search for perfection." After conducting the premiere of his 5th Symphony in 1904, Mahler himself said, "Nobody understood it. I wish I could conduct the first performance fifty years after my death."

The Fascists of the Left (FOTLs, pronounced “Fottles” and spelled that way henceforth) have won. Free speech in New Zealand is dead. It has been throttled by Fottles.

Summer Pops: Music from the Movies
New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Hamish McKeich
Michael Fowler Centre, February 9

The NZSO seemed a few players short of an orchestra last Friday night. Maybe some of the musicians were still on summer break; maybe it was felt that the relatively light fare didn't require a full muster. The enthusiastic, if not full, house didn't seem to mind in the least.

Notwithstanding my bitter disagreement with Amy Peikoff over her slavish support for Obleftivism, ARISIS and Bwook the Cwook, I was very impressed by Amy's acquittal of herself on Tucker Carlson Tonight today. Of course, I'd love to eliminate her juvenile quacking and upward-inflecting, but her sentiments were magnificent.

"Handel has for me an entirely fourth-rate significance, and he is not even entertaining."

Doubtless the throngs of people of all ages who packed the Michael Fowler Centre on Saturday night for the annual recycling of The Messiah would beg to differ with the mighty Tchaikovsky's brutal appraisal above.

The virtue most lacking in public life is courage. Cowardice is universal; the craven fear of social opprobrium makes lickspittles of almost everyone. Never has this been more true than now, when the dictates of Islamo-Marxism hold sway, manifested in a suffocating Political Correctness and the relentless advance of Sharia Law.

Fiat has just launched the following ad all over the world, celebrating 60 years of Fiat 500.

In his Milan apartment, sometime in the fifties, a suave Italian gentleman is listening to Mario Lanza singing the title song of his latest movie, For the First Time. As he opens up Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream and begins to read, our gentleman seems to fall asleep. He is then seen to step out of his unit ... into the present day. He bumps into a beautiful woman. And Mario. "For the first time I'm in love." What on earth could happen next?! Will whatever happens stand the test of time?! Is it all just a dream?

CNN Filth inadvertently exposed by one of their own employees. The most salutary moment is when any notion of "ethics" in journalism is derided as "adorable." Pretty much where we're at in life generally, in this grotesque anti-culture of moronnials, pomowankers and fry-quackers, aided and abetted by, of all entities, the Ayn Rand Institute. In any event, even in such a depraved world, this must surely spell the end of the Russia bullshit, as well as the careers of such Filth as Zucker, Cooper, Lemon, Tapper, Stelter et al ... mustn't it? Please tell me yes!
