Rush Tumbles to 'Airhead America'

As the regulars here know, I have long harboured the fear that, thanks to Gramsci's Long March through the Culture, airheads now preponderate in America, with the election of The Filth in 2008 being my Exhibit A. If I'm right, of course, The Filth will be re-elected regardless of the fact that he's wrought evil and disaster (or, probably, because of that fact). This appalling possibility has now apparently dawned on Rush Limbaugh, who said today that while the country might survive four more years of Obamarx, it can't survive a preponderance of people moronic enough to re-elect him. "Obama is going after the moron vote," he said, clearly worried that the moron vote is now big enough to see The Filth returned:

» 169 comments Following presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney‘s announcement that Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) would be his running-mate, many on the left dug up the congressman’s noted admiration of Objectivist philosopher Ayn Rand as a point of concern, given her espousal of a philosophy that sneered at altruism and championed the individual above collective society.

KASS Music Gem—Some *Real* Music, Unlike Wagner, for Simon O'Neill

In my review of the malevolent anti-Romantic Wagner, the Kant of music, I said it was a shame such stellar vocalists as Simon O'Neill weren't, in this context, given any actual music to sing. Here's some music, Gounod, set to Shakespeare, in which I'm sure Simon would excel. In the meantime, let's revel in Roberto Alagna:

It can be an existential, but most assuredly not philosophical, coincidence, that the American Olympic uniform this year, made in Communist China, sports a grayness that would make the totalitarians who ran the former Soviet Union green. What the US athletes are mandated to wear, in fact, makes them look even more drab than Air New Zealand flight attendants, whose uniforms are similarly gray, bland and frumpy.

"A woman convicted of adultery has been sentenced to death by stoning and is being held with her 6-month-old baby in jail, activists said Wednesday, in the second such sentence in the past few months in the country. President Omar Hassan al-Bashir said last month that Sudan would adopt a '100 percent' Islamic constitution, prompting concerns that the country would apply Islamic law more strictly after the secession a year ago of South Sudan, which is mostly non-Muslim."

Tunes Will Out

"I've been to the theatre a few times and heard Wagner's Walküre, from which I carried away memories of two or three glorious minutes and a whole ocean of boredom and utter emptiness."
—Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, 1877

"In Vienna I heard Wagner's Die Walküre and was able to confirm my first impression from Bayreuth. If music really is fated to have in Wagner its principal and greatest exponent, then that is enough to cause one to despair. Can this really be the last word in music?! Will future generations really enjoy this pretentious, cumbersome, and unsightly nonsense, as we now take delight in Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, which in its time was also regarded as nonsense? If yes, then that's terrible."

Well, I guess we all knew that and embraced it, but what I mean is, the fact that a Labour MP's Private Member's Bill that would allow for the bestowing of the status of "marriage" on gay partnerships has been drawn from the ballot and may well be passed by Parliament (heck, Barack Obama would support it) is a double-edged sword.

I know I've posted countless versions of the Rach 3, but when I discovered this one I couldn't contain myself. These are the second and third movements played by Andrei Gavrilov, an outstanding Russian pianist whom Karajan signed up to record all the Rach concerti in 1979. As the time drew near, the Soviet regime seized Gavrilov's passport and placed him under house arrest (later in a psychiatric institution)—he had been publicly critical of that regime.

In his short life, Chopin wrote 2 piano concerti—by the age of 20! This one was written first but published second: hence its being called No. 2. Yevgeny Kissin, a little older now than the baby-faced cherub of earlier renown, is mesmerizing in this performance released in 2010 to mark the 200th anniversary of Chopin's birth. Be warned: the first video ends with ugly abruptness. The concerto is concluded in the second video, where Kissin performs the Revolutionary Etude as an encore. Full screen and full volume essential! Value-swoon rating: 15/10.

There are two types of people in life: those who get on with the business of living, and those who try to get in their way. Politicians—of whom Cicero said they were excreted, not born—and bureaucrats are of course foremost in the latter category, but in this crony-capitalist society we have now it is not uncommon to find those who ought to be in the former category sidling up to those in the latter.
