Name: Brian Siano Source: unca20030523.htm To Shane: You've read a story about the famous Poe Toaster, who's been visiting the grave of the Great American Hack for forty years now. No one knows who he is, and no one with any decency would want to spoil things by finding out. Any world that can stil...

Name: Brian Siano Source: unca20030523.htm Re taping Harlan. That's one thing that occurred to me, now that I have a camcorder. But single-camera coverage just don't do the job, for lots of reasons. The first is that you need reaction shots of the audience, close-ups when the chat gets intimate, an...

Name: Brian Siano Source: unca20030523.htm Re guilt, Catholics and Jews. Neither can claim to have invented it. Jews claim to have perfected it. But frankly, most people can't _imagine_ the depths, complexities, and subtleties of Catholic guilt, refined over twenty centuries by teams of trained Jes...

Name: Brian Siano Source: unca20030523.htm Thanks for the link to the pics, Mike, but I have one BIG problem. Why is it that Harlan can be nearly seventy years old, afflicted with cataracts, survive heart attacks and heart surgery, be white-haired and haggard, and STILL look better in photographs t...

BOS, you'd probably really enjoy Robert Hughes's books _Culture of Complaint_ and _Nothing if not Critical_. Trust me, you'll like'em. I did. Just the line describing Karen Finley as "the chocolate-covered Irishwoman" was worth the money spent.

Name: Brian Siano Source: unca20030523.htm Okay, let's talk about rap music. Like I said, I don't enjoy listening to most of it. Most of it's just concussion and pounding, and if its point is to irritate us complacent middle-class white folks, it _works_, and it's making a lot of us less receptive ...

Name: Brian Siano Source: unca20030523.htm Re rap and country. I cna understand not liking rap, because a lot of it seems devoted to giving people boom-box ammo to piss off passersby. Sure, there's some rap that's great to listen to, ranging from the politically potent to the just plain fun (I have...

Name: Brian Siano Source: unca20030523.htm Rick's post, about the word "evil," raises a bunch of questions that I, for one, think are really really interesting. Rick wrote, "I think it would be best to consider that not only are we not telepathic and precognitive but our perceptions of good and evi...
