The Week In Review
The opportunity to visit other worlds was strong in this one. Jupiter has the loveliest of moons, each complementing some aspect of its vast and unusual personality. Everything you need to know about a planet, you learn from seeing it from space.
The profession of shaman has many advantages. It offers high status with a safe livelihood free of work in the dreary, sweaty sense. In most societies it offers legal privileges and immunities not granted to other men. But it is hard to see how a man who has been given a mandate from on High to spread tidings of joy to all mankind can be seriously interested in taking up a collection to pay his salary; it causes one to suspect that the shaman is on the moral level of any other con man.
But it's lovely work if you can stomach it.
- We went crazy for Leonard Michaels here.
- Somewhere far along this road capitalism lost its soul.
- We reviewed the path of destruction in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.
I started clipping and filing by categories on trends as early as 1930 and my "youngest" file was started in 1945. Span of time is important; the 3-legged stool of understanding is held up by history, languages, and mathematics. Equipped with these three you can learn anything you want to learn. But if you lack any one of them you are just another ignorant peasant with dung on your boots.
- Molly fought the terrorists and won.
- Britt on Do the Right Thing.
- We unwrapped a package of John Currin and Leonard Michaels.
Instead of taking revenge on someone, consider offering him the spare bedroom of your house. It's a great way to grow closer.
- We detailed the new season of True Blood.
- We mourned the King of Pop.
- Leonard Michaels learned the value of pop art.
Next week is Woody Allen Week, enjoy it.
