The perils of novelty

March 04th, 2015 by Vader

New ideas that are also good are pretty hard to come by, given how long humanity has been gleaning the vineyard.

New ideas that are bad are a dime a dozen.

Drudge’s headline for a story on how Oliver Stone and Hollywood are objecting to NSA surveillance:

Damning with faint damnation

March 18th, 2013 by Vader

I love a good evisceration.

Though I wasn’t actually planning on seeing the movie, so Lileks hasn’t actually saved me any time and money. Just entertained me.

His Majesty: “So the Oz movie was successful in seeing that you were entertained, after all?”

Hollywood Hates That Which Is Good and Decent

August 22nd, 2012 by G.

That culture finds itself more and more in the embrace of broken homes and sin, and less what it was. (more…)
