Greg Sandow, music critic and Juilliard teacher, cried a few months ago when he watched The Great Caruso. I cried when I read his article about it just now.

[Published in this month's Capital Magazine—believe it or not at their instigation! They have printed every word I wrote, as I wrote it, aside from their putting my "gutless in thrall to the clueless" line inside the Mike Moore quote. I am agreeably astonished. Is the blacklist finally at an end?]

I have long referred to NZ's education establishment (and that of most Western countries) as "child-molesters of the mind." I used to document their atrocities regularly in The Free Radical and on talkback. Now there has been a whistle-blower from within.

Australian one-time Olympic swimming champion, the impossibly prepossessing Ian Thorpe, has now admitted what has long been rumoured and anyone with even a minimally-functioning "gaydar" has believed all along—he is gay.

The underwhelmingly-publicised Atlas Shrugged Part 3 has apparently been sneak-previewed in Las Vegas, and been well received.

Metropolitan Opera Grande Diva Licia Albanese will turn 101 next month. She appeared with Mario in the 1955 Warner Bros movie Serenade. In 1995 she and I were both in Philadelphia to attend the annual Mario Lanza Ball, where she performed a stellar, impromptu rendering of Star-Spangled Banner. A day prior to the Ball I recorded this interview with her. My thanks to Gregster for uploading and matching pics to audio:

Evgeny Kissin is the only musician among his pre-eminent contemporaries not only prepared *not* to go along with Political Correctness and its capitulation to Islamofilth (for capitulation in OrgOism, see weasel-worders who talk about "Islamism" as distinct from Islam), but brave enough to challenge it openly:

For anyone falling within the category, "human," there can have been no more repulsive spectacle recently than President Obama's State of the Union address today. It was vile on several counts:

Goblians claim, mistakenly, that December 25 is Jeezy's birthday, and that Jeezy was the Son of Gobby while simultaneously being Gobby, while both were/are simultaneously Ghosty. It's all nonsense, of course, but one has to acknowledge it was/is momentous nonsense (one hopes for not much longer, even as a more vicious nonsense threatens to trump it). Let us, in the spirit of no nonsense, and SOLO's commitment to an aesthetic renewal, revel in this stellar performance of Tchaikovsky's life-and-beauty-proclaiming 5th Symphony and know what is possible to man in spite of the irrationalists in all their guises.

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.
