Re: Star Wars Music is Getting Worse - Beyond The Last Jedi & John Williams - A Music Philosophy Review

The choppy way most movies are edited nowadays makes it almost impossible to make much use of the leitmotif, let alone sweeping scores. Just imagine a newer movie using a grand score like the one Miklos Rosza composed for El Cid or Ben-Hur. Even if one of the newer composers wrote something as his s...

Re: George Lucas Was Disappointed With Lack of Originality in ‘Force Awakens,’ Disney Chief Bob Iger Says

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=56FsSmUi0Yk It's people like Jeremy Jahns that basically helped to enable the current mess imo, because those are the SW fans that craved short term enjoyment so much even if it affects their long-term enjoyment of the franchise.

These are the same charlatans who filed nuisance suits over the suicide of Vince Foster (they think Hillary bumped him off).

Re: Justin Trudeau's latest vice - Dressing up in blackface

Trudeau always struck me as a Canadian version of Evan Bayh: a mediocrity who owes his success to having a great statesman or courageous public servant for a father. Mitt Romney, Hilary Benn and Mark Halperin also fall into this category.

Re: New sexual assault claims against Brett Kavanugh NYT

The Democrats, led by Biden, were too chickenshit to reject Clarence Thomas, so I doubt they'll ever have the balls to try to remove Schlitz Kavanaugh. There is a practical way to make him irrelevant, but it would require the Democrats to (a) grow a pair and (b) take both houses and the presidency n...

Re: How Conservative American Money Helped the Religious Right Take Over Israel

The far right in Israel (and their media fluffers in the US) climbed into bed with American fundies and war whores about the time Bitburg Ronnie got elected. So it's only natural that the tactics of the American far right rubbed off on their Israeli bedfellows. It's also no big surprise that younger...

Because reporting something like that when they've decided it isn't worth it or is too dangerous isn't arrogant and harmful and a betrayal of trust. You idiot.

Unless they, I dunno, refused to do so because they thought (probably accurately) it wouldn't help and might lead to retaliation but they still wanted to get the word out to warn others.

As for whispering campaigns, they only work if there's some kind of evidence to back them up, or if they agree with one's own experience.
