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.

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.

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.

(Reprised ahead of July 4 from two years ago. I have nothing to add except: since then, America has become even more airheaded, with moronic "millennials" demanding the banning of the American flag, and lobotomised OrgOism even more timid and impotent. It really is touch-and-go whether the Obamarxian collapse or the Islamo dirty bomb will happen first. It's tragically bemusing to watch Airhead America tut-tutting about Greece, when the same thing is assuredly about to occur to it and for the same reasons. The dirty bomb might be the less painful option. Either way, I continue to be incredulous at the lack of any sense of urgency among OrgOists about America's plight. Where on earth *is* the Roar of Randian Repugnance to which I refer? There's more passion from Jindal, Cruz, Trump and Rand Paul!)

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.

"As a child, I saw a glimpse of the pre-World War 1 world, the last afterglow of the most radiant cultural atmosphere in human history ... The existential atmosphere (which was then being destroyed by Europe's philosophical trends and political systems) still held a benevolence that would be incredible to the men of today, i.e., a smiling, confident good will of man to man and man to life."

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.
