Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

Prince is both complex and simple. I like it all. I love and live for it all. Smoke On The Water, is that idiocy? Good example with Prince. Recall, I never said he was bad, just that I don't care for him. Personal taste is what it is, but I acknowledge the talent and quality. Why would Smoke On The...

Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

Another so-called "critic" for whom I have little regard is Ed Ward, whose historical knowledge of music is incredible (50s pop and jazz, at least) but who is aesthetically stuck in the doo-wop school of simple and once, in a review on NPR, dismissed the entirety of the 70s as a period tha...

I finally got the time to really look at the photos you posted. I've gotta ask a question.

Do you have a photo that you would consider your Pepper 39?


I'll have to think about that one. I would never compare myself to Weston, but I appreciate the thought.

Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

So, what do you call a person who sees the artistic value in comics, Jeff Koons and Monet? Art IMO isn't a good gauge of culture. Some of the highest of brows liked Wharhol,and some of the lowest Do Vinci. It boils down to personal preference. Case in point The Sandman graphic novels. The person wh...

I've seen her around on Facebook and she shows up here from time to time. Chuck Thanks. Just checking. It's been a while since she posted here and she did say something about medical issues. Hey Diane! Let us know how you're doing. This is a bit scary, but I think I know what he's getting at. Mark ...

Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

Popular culture is not seen as culture by snobs, not saying you are one. We are all pop culture militants. I'm still waiting for you to clarify your remarks and all I get is more word salad. It's like you're channeling Ginsberg, badly. This is a bit scary, but I think I know what he's getting at. P...

Re: Frank Church's news corner, the sequel.

I have a fundamental problem with "possession" laws. I can sympathize with a civil desire and need to keep certain things out of certain hands, but that to my mind justifies confiscation only, not criminal action. I remember the days when cops would throw a nickel bag in the trunk of a car...

Re: Frank Church's news corner, the sequel.

I don't understand why Barber cannot get me here. If you let authority use violence with little oversite, they could be death squads later. Think Indonesia. He did get you. It's just that you used a howitzer to crack open a walnut. After the explosion no one can see what it was you were aiming at i...

I think he means "brakes" as in, with no one stopping them they go wild. And I agree, death squads are at least partly secret police with no restraints other than the tyrants unleashing them.

Re: Wathcya watchin'?

Saw Gravity finally. Enjoyed the hell out of it. Yes, there are some errors in science (one big one that bothers me every time I see it, like it did in Red Planet , but I understand why it was used---for dramatic reasons that paid off eventually, so I'm giving it a pass) but there was so much right ...
