The State of Classical Music in America

Check the Numbers: Rumors of Classical Music’s Demise Are Dead Wrong – New York Times

All this has of late become the subject of countless blogs, news reports, books and symposiums, with classical music partisans furrowing their brows and debating what went wrong, what can still go wrong and whether it’s too late to save this once-exalted industry. Moaning about the state of classical music has itself become an industry. But as pervasive as the conventional wisdom is, much of it is based on sketchy data incorrectly interpreted. Were things better in the old days? Has American culture given up on classical music?

"This is all utter bullshit."

The FBI’s raid on a corrupt Congressman’s office has sparked a Constitutional “crisis”. Yeah, right.

This uproar over the raid smacks more of self-preservation than preservation of the Constitution. When all this hype dies down, all of these political ostriches will go back to sticking their heads in the sand. And what will remain? An imperial Presidency, a tattered Constitution, and the painful, continued silence of a Congress that doesn’t give a damn about democracy as we know it.

"See No Evil" review on Macsimum News

Macsimum News – Don’t see ‘See No Evil’

As long as folks keep shelling out good money for junk like this, trash like See No Evil will continue to haunt the multiplexes. This is another gore-filled film in which an almost superhuman killer mutilates and mauls young people. This is entertainment?

It seems that they don’t like it very much. That’s not really surprising, though, it’s a movie from the WWE. :-/
