Kubrick v. Nabokov

November 28th, 2010 by GST

I just read something interesting in British Chess Magazine. “Kubrick’s Rubric” by Antonio Gude: “The odd thing was that, despite them both [Kubrick and Nabokov] being chess aficionados, there is no report if them playing chess. Nabokov was a scriptwriter on the film [Lolita, from his novel] and surely must have come into contact with Kubrick. If they ever did play, we have no record of games played between them.”

We know that Kubrick did play on set against George C. Scott, Shelley Duvall, and Arliss Howard.

Speaking truth to power

November 28th, 2010 by Vader

The real McCoy.

Moral courage is a much scarcer and more precious commodity than the physical kind, which after all could simply be a kind of stupidity.

November 27th, 2010 by G.

Like political theories (libertarianism comes to mind), many theories of the Atonement founder on the rock that is the existence of children. (more…)

Chocolate pecan pie

November 24th, 2010 by Vader

My pancreas hurts just reading the recipe.

A happy Thanksgiving to everyone. “And he who receiveth all things with thankfulness shall be made glorious; and the things of this earth shall be added unto him, even an hundred fold, yea, more.”

I think that we are supposed to receive even trials with thankfulness, but that’s a topic for a whole ‘nother sermon.

Ross Douthat does yeoman’s work explaining the Catholic take on birth control to us heathen, and explaining our heathen obstinacy to the Catholics.

“Students Campaign for Alternative Hummus”

November 23rd, 2010 by Vader

As Orin Kerr points out, this isn’t even The Onion.

Satire is truly becoming increasingly difficult.

Though, if they had added a strategically placed “to” in the sentence, I might stand with them.

When “nice” people do nasty things

November 22nd, 2010 by Vader

How often have we heard that some miscreant is really a very nice person and his nastiness is completely out of character?

A recent example.

And, yeah, I know. The Sith calling the Jedi black.
