Jim Steele sounds like a saint. Thank you for introducing us all to him!
Cecilia Bartoli... can't be beat!
I challenge you to listen to this... once she starts to sing it's impossible to click away!
I've never read any of her work, but I just watched this fascinating dicussion about her recent art book, which I'm looking forward to reading soon. Her crusade to reform academia from within seems right on target, and her desire to bring art to the American people wholly admirable. Thank you for bring her to my attention, Judith!
Good luck! I'm looking forward to watching it.
Gary Wilson argues that internet porn is very different from Playboy:
Wow. I loved it. This is kind of pathetic, but having grown up taking space travel for granted, I think that this video more than anything before made me appreciate how incredible it is???? Something about the line "Here am I, sitting in a tin can" along with the shots of him looking out at earth...
And I liked his voice.
Thank you for doing this! Lots of fun. Next time, maybe a little love for the seventeenth century?
After finishing the podcast I found some Hummel recordings on spotify... I loved the Antonio Pompa-Baldi recording of the first piano sonata, and plan to continue listening! Thanks for the suggestion, Mona.
Yesterday I got the chance to pose this question to two Chinese friends who have been in the country for 7 and 18 years, respectively. They are both conservative evangelical Christians who have studied at American universities. They agreed that Asians tend to value higher education above nearly anything else, and perceive the Democrats as the better educated party, and the party more in favor of funding higher education. I think it's partly a matter of pride, and partly a genuine belief in the promise of what education can do for both an individual and the country as a whole.
The Christmas album that Jay mentions is on Spotify under "The Gift of Christmas," artists: Kevin Murphy, Heidi Grant Murphy. Very nice!
If America is going to head down the tubes I want to hear it all narrated by Mona and Jay.
I think this also perfectly reflects my current feelings:
I'm with you on all fronts.
I don't have a camera, but I can report that some jerks have put Dem signs up all over the polling place, which is also a public school.
where is the "like" button?
