Move Over, Richard and Robert!

As I type this, I have before me a double-album (vinyl) I purchased in August, 1975, a live recording of an epic concert at Carnegie Hall two and a half years earlier by Metropolitan Opera titans Richard Tucker and Robert Merrill. Not long ago, when a budding young baritone friend was visiting, we listened and thrilled to the entire concert. It's worth quoting part of the liner notes about the atmosphere on the night:

Bibi's Back!

Bad news for "Zionist" conspiracy half-wits, the Christchurch shooter, "Doug Bandler," Omar Ilhan, Jacinda Adern, Winston Peters, the NZ National Party, Occasional Cortex, Yawon Bwook and the Obleftivist Anti-Wand Institute, Dems, Profa, Social Justice Warriors, Hollywood, Academia, the Kingdom of Brunei, the Media, the Trump Derangement Syndromers, anti-Free Speechers, George Soros and The Filth in general. Bibi's back, twice as bad-ass as before. Islamoterrorists can forget their two-state solution. In the battle of the savage against the civilised man, the civilised man has won.

Two Weeks On, Updated

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Sun, 2019-03-24 08:01

See update, after video:

"Just as I reserve the right to hold and express my opinions on any matter whatsoever, I promise to respect the right of all others to do the same. I renounce unreservedly the use of coercion and violence in the promotion of my opinions."

Let's just reiterate some basics here, two weeks on:

1) The Christchurch killer is evil beyond words. Saying this is not token virtue-signalling, which would make one sick; it is a heartfelt condemnation, by a lover of freedom and reason, of a gruesome initiation of force by a monster. Nor is it the fallacy of moral equivalence to say that monster is on a par with the Muslims who far more commonly perpetrate such atrocities. The gratuitous slaughter of innocents is never moral.

Mosque Shootings, Christchurch, New Zealand

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Fri, 2019-03-15 06:33

As is being reported all over the world right now, there have been mass shootings in two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, a country hitherto seemingly immune to this kind of madness. At the time I write this, the number of fatalities is forty; New Zealand has never experienced, nor could ever imagine, anything like it. Four people are in custody. One of these is Brenton Tarrant, an Australian moronnial who signalled his intentions in advance on those repositories of moronnial Narcissism, Twit-Witter and Faecesbook, where he, naturally, livestreamed his attack:

Frankie Does the Occasional Cortex Diet

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Fri, 2019-03-08 23:40

Gorgeous Frank Tufano is a carnivore who makes videos mocking the vegan diet—the diet that Occasional Cortex wants to make compulsory as part of her Green New Deal. He long ago latched on to the fact that vegans in particular "speak" in that airhead, fry-quacking, upward-inflecting style of emission—laced with "like," oh my god," "I'm so totally," "guys" and all the other fatuities of moronnialspeak—which, as an infallible marker of civilisation's tragic decline, so exercises me. If I'm not mistaken the particular vegan he is imitating here is the YouTuber who goes by the name of Vegan Gains; the impersonation is devastatingly accurate and top-notch comedy. The unfunny thing is that this is the way almost all moronnials the world over, vegan or not, now actually do "speak," with all the militant imbecility and evil it implies.

The vacuous look Frankie puts on his face at the very end is alone worth the price of admission:


Milo Banned from Australia!

Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Wed, 2019-03-06 07:06

The Government of Scott Morrison has just refused entry to Milo, who was scheduled to do a second speaking tour. The pretext is that last time round there were potests by Profa and it cost too much for the cops to do their job (the cops billed Milo subsequently for the cost of protecting him). The Filth will rejoice at this victory. Obleftivists will within seconds no doubt be proclaiming that there is no free speech issue involved here. My ass!!

This Millennium's Most Hideous, Hillaryous Hypocrisy Thus Far

"This is a time, my friends, when fundamental rights, civic virtue, freedom of the press, the rule of law, truth, facts and reason are under assault."

—Obleftivist heroine Crooked Hillary Clinton, Selma, Alabama, March 4, 2019.

The rank hypocrisy of this insufferable sanctimony is astounding in its brazenness. Yes, there is an assault on the things Crooked mentions—from her; and from Barack Obama, George Soros and all their globalist allies, including their quisling Obleftivist shills.


Life on the Level

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Sun, 2019-01-13 07:51

"Can we ever have life on the level?" asks Ayn Rand in her journals.

Having been an admirer of her for nearly 40 years, but also a (very naive) student of human nature, I would answer: only among the "lower" animals. You will seldom if ever find the on-the-levelness in any "human" that you see here exhibited by this dog.

His name is "Barack" for reasons that have nothing to do with me. The "mummy" referred to in this vid is my sister. At the time of this recording he was dying from spinal cancer, and each day was different. Because of mummy's work commitments, many days the burden of care was on me. As you will see, this day was a good one, but he died not long after.

Here is the innocence, the sincerity, the on-the-levelness, the no-hidden-agenda love that is impossible to find among so-called humans such as the other Barack who are, like the ARI, driven by Satan and Soros. Disgusting, cosmically evil sub-humans. When we uncover why this is so, we shall have discovered humanity's redemption.

Roberto Alagna sings O Holy Night. No prizes for guessing who inspired this then-young man to become a singer. The filming and directing are not optimal, but who cares in the face of such glorious singing?! Roberto's idol, whom he so closely resembles here, would be proud of him. And I hope this gets up the snotty noses of ghastly (is there any other kind?) Obleftivists. May 2019 see the crushing of filthy Obleftivism and the filthy Islamo-Marxism it promotes!

The Lost, Civilised Art of Listening

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Wed, 2018-11-28 09:14

I took a lesson with a speech pupil tonight. To my surprise he informed me he'd just watched my interview from 1994 on MSTV with Jose Carreras, and said it made him realise the truth of my routine observations about the inability of anyone nowadays, on or off TV, to listen.

Everyone talks over everyone else, in the most disgusting fry-quacking, attention-seeking tones imaginable. Everyone thinks his is the only opinion that counts. It's a short step from that to everyone bashing everyone else over the head. The level of primordial contempt involved in both is not distant. I would urge people to note how in the Bruno/Linzio transmissions, there is ample listening and ample talking by both of us. True conversations, without compromising our ability and right to disagree.

Here's the interview. Note how at the end, Jose himself remarks how unusual it was:

This occasion was nothing short of astounding—and clearly nothing less was expected. Every seat was occupied. Overflow audience were seated behind the choir. Paramedics were on standby in case of a stampede of the claustrophobic. The Band were in the same stellar form they've been in all year.

New Zealand Symphony Orchestra with Lars Vogt (piano/conductor), Music by Beethoven, Mozart and Webern, Michael Fowler Centre 26 October

It's always reassuring, in a time of relentless, mindless war against all things dead, European and male, to be able to savour composers and performances such as these. New Zealand Opera's stellar production of Giacomo Puccini's La Boheme a few weeks back was one such occasion. That people flocked in such numbers to revel in such rapturous music was convincing evidence that the forces of barbarism have not yet triumphed.

Why couldn't Juliet have awoken from her drug-induced coma in time to stop Romeo, who thought she was dead, swallowing his own poisonous potion, thus obviating any grisly necessity to dispatch herself with his dagger to join him in death? Did not Shakespeare realise that three hundred years on Tchaikovsky would have melted as many hearts with a happy ending?

The sonata, the concerto and the symphony are among the greatest achievements of mankind. They reached their apogee in the nineteenth century. They have been under assault since the early part of the twentieth, when Stravinsky and others launched a war on melody and beauty.
