Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

Neo-cons were at once marxists, so it fits--extremism meet extremism. Norman Podhoretz, editor of the premier neoconservative journal COMMENTARY for 30 years, was never a Marxist. You can look it up. It looks more like a womb, since bagels do not look like that, unless they are badly made. lol. Cle...

Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

Actually, Robo, the neoconservative movement was launched primarily by New York Jews, not Christians -- Irving Kristol, Norman Podhoretz, Nathan Glazer, Daniel Bell, and others. Later on some Christians came on board, but the movement was largely founded by Jews who accepted the New Deal and its pro...

Re: Robert Nason's Culture Café

Hammett came first and more-or-less invented the hardboiled detective novel, as Chandler himself admitted; but Chandler came along and perfected it, at least in my opinion. Both of them were part of the BLACK MASK mystery magazine school of writers (which included Erle Stanley Gardner, among many ot...

Re: Robert Nason's Culture Café

RAYMOND CHANDLER, cat lover and arguably the greatest writer of hardboiled mystery novels who ever lived, took his first breath from these mean streets on this day in 1988. Take a moment to remember a true master. http://culturalcat.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/tumblr_kyd3s35s6s1qaxihzo1_400.jpg

Re: Robert Nason's Culture Café

Steve, that's a great story. When I go to sleep tonight, I have a hunch the images will merge so that you, Loftus, and Cramer are pushing a car shaped like a giant Pink's hot dog. (I'm probably thinking of those hot dog stands with huge curved hot dogs on top that I've seen in photos of old L.A. -- ...

Re: Harlan Ellison's Watching.....

I've read that seeing FATAL ATTRACTION wrecked more dates when it first came out than just about any movie ever made. And in Britain it even gave rise to a whole new definition for a certain kind of woman, called "bunny boilers."

I just hope they were Nathan's hot dogs or Hebrew National, two of the very best available. Does anyone have another candidate? I confess I love the variety of wursts I sampled in Vienna last year -- I'll take those over our rather bland American dogs any day. (See, I can exhibit as much zenophilia ...

Re: Frank Church's news corner, the sequel.

Nasson, what was with the incident at the Brooklyn Bridge? Somebody took the American flags and put white flags as replacements. You have to admit, that took skill. It has to be some right wing group. Why would the left put up a white flag? I really have no idea what the "statement" the w...
