When Western Civilisation comes to an end, as it assuredly soon must if it doesn't quickly mount a dramatic rearguard action on its own behalf, its epitaph will be words that have been cited often, but not often enough: "Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it."

Garrick Ohlsson Plays Brahms
In reviewing a concert at this moment in history, one is mindful of one's good fortune in being able to attend such an event without being shot, beheaded or blown up by Islamosavages. (How long can it be, one frets, before concert venues become like airport boarding gates?) One is mindful that the music of Mozart, Beethoven and Brahms et al represents the cultural apogee of the values of the Enlightenment, which the terrorists wish to take down and replace with their vicious, totalitarian superstition.

Will so-called Objectivists rally round this time or sit and sneer in cultish pomowanker group-think? The latter, I suspect.

All over the western world, the mainstream media are infested with illiberals: the humourless, conscienceless, Islam-loving Politically Correct Fascists of the Left who crawl out from under their rocks each day for no other purpose than to police the thoughts of those few who remain capable of thought and close them down.

Some years ago I got into terrible trouble with orthodox Objectivists who were backing Leonard Peikoff's call to vote Democrat across the board because a) socialism was dead as a philosophical force, and thus, not the concern it might otherwise be; b) Republicans were so bad the primary political imperative at the time was to "topple" them; and c) the Republicans, left untoppled, would usher in a Christian theocracy.

In my profile of Simon O'Neill, When a Cover-Up Is a Good Thing, written before New Zealand Opera's production of Tosca had opened in Auckland, Mr. O'Neill (hereinafter to be referred to as "Sir Simon" for reasons that will become apparent) pronounced the whole cast "A-Grade." Having attended the Wellington opening on Saturday, I can say without hesitation: they are!

Much hilarity today as Fox News celebrated its 19th birthday with clips of current anchors on Launch Day looking preposterously young. Bill O'Reilly with hair. Sean Hannity with even more hair. Neil Cavuto looking like a male model with brains. Women no longer around, at least on Fox (no hyperventilating quackers back then). It was an occasion to reflect thankfully on the fact that but for Fox, the tsunami of Political Correctness that has given Hitler victories he could never have imagined on the battlefield would have engulfed all of the West by now. As it is, Fox has been the sandbags that have contained the illiberal tide, even as some of those sandbags have been contaminated by the filthy waters.

Pope Francis = TAS
Turns out Pope Francis met up with Kim Davis, who went to jail for refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples. But now the Pope is trying to deny it, or at least, downplay the meeting. Now, as a gay person I think Kim Davis's position on homosexuality is as ignorant as Ayn Rand's, but I admire her (Davis) immensely for having the courage of her convictions. And I loathe the gay mafia, the Pink Swastika-carriers, to an extent where I wish I had nothing at all in common with them, disgusting sub-human nazis that they are.

There are two types of people in this world: TDTWs and anti-TDTWs.
TDTW stands for: [Mr. Gorbachev] Tear Down This Wall. The two types are: 1) those who would have urged President Reagan to go ahead and deliver that line in his 1987 speech in Berlin; and, 2) the milksops who would have been horrified by it and pleaded with him to delete it (they were myriad at the time, but fortunately did not prevail. Hard to imagine these days).

'Renée Fleming, A Gala Evening' was threatening to become 'Death by Ravel' by the interval on Saturday night. Music-lovers had flocked to hear the great diva, packing the Michael Fowler Centre to the rafters, but were mistreated in the first half to a protracted assault on the waltz and a tiresome non-event of a song cycle, both by the aforementioned Maurice Ravel.

When a Cover-Up Is a Good Thing!
Tenor Simon O'Neill loves coming back to Wellington. He did the Honours year of his music degree here, studying with the iconic Emily Mair, who, "along with my Aunt Eileen," is "my favourite person in Wellington." He says as a cultural hub, "Courtenay Place is second to none in the Southern Hemisphere." He's rapt about the "rehabilitation" of St James Theatre, where he'll be performing as Mario Cavaradossi in Puccini's Tosca from October 10-17, with what he calls "an A-Grade cast." (The opera opens in Auckland on September 17.)

Anton Bruckner, writer of nine uncommonly long symphonies and many other compositions, worried that when he met his maker, God might ask him why he hadn't written still more music. Were I God, I'd be more inclined to ask him why he'd written any—or more precisely, none.

It's a hideous historical irony that sizeable pockets of "millennials" are, along with Muslims and the media, the locus of totalitarianism in the modern world. University students in particular, even more than their state-worshipping tutors, are at the forefront of the war on free speech.

This video has gone viral—another sign (as is Trump) that there's a thirst "out there" for words that are true and fearless: words that reflect a functioning moral compass, unfiltered by weasel-worded PC marketers, uncorrupted by the pathological consciencelessness of the dribbling, defecating monsters of the Occupy movement.

Newly updated, 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.

"Tenor is not a voice; it is a disease!" harrumphs a woman who just happens to be a soprano, in the 1951 Hollywood bio-pic The Great Caruso. The movie featured one spectacular carrier of the "disease" playing another, and spawned veritable epidemics of it, most notably in the forms of Pavarotti, Domingo and Carreras. And it didn't stop there:
