"In Serbia a lot of people hate me because they want to westernise, not understanding that the western world is bipolar, with very good things and very bad things. Since they don't have experience of the west, they even believe that western shit is pie."

episode 7 right now
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

Cinephile likes subversive television comedy.  :)

SNT likes jazz.   :(

I'm playing Darryl Hannah's big entrance in Kill Bill, Vol. 1 over and over again. It totally rocks, and I don't just throw that word around. The camp nurse-disguise eyepatch accessory is the perfect little flourish for it, too. It's a very De Palma moment- funny and overblown and stylish and rapturously fake/choreographed and oh-so-cinematic. Best part of the movie, I think.

It sort of supports my concept that Kill Bill, expert and passionately artificial as they are, are movies of great moments, "coolness" and not much else...
""Money doesn't come into it. It never has. I do what I do because it's all that I am." - Morrissey

"Lacan stressed more and more in his work the power and organizing principle of the symbolic, understood as the networks, social, cultural, and linguistic, into which a child is born. These precede the birth of a child, which is why Lacan can say that language is there from before the actual moment of birth. It is there in the social structures which are at play in the family and, of course, in the ideals, goals, and histories of the parents. This world of language can hardly be grasped by the newborn and yet it will act on the whole of the child's existence."

Stay informed on protecting your freedom of speech and civil rights.

Let those who imagine JB and godardian always fall automatically in line with each other's opinions remember and cherish this moment.

How can you be anti-jazz?!!!!

Unless you've never heard good jazz, and think that Kenny G smooth-jazz shit is what it is...

I haven't heard much. Miles Davis and Herbie Hancock, perhaphs more. But with Jazz I think you have to be a very responsible listener, and I don't consider myself responsible towards music, let alone a single genre.  If you have recommendations let me know but I've tried before .
