Eric Martin--what is he good for?

Reading through recent posts, I was wondering if anyone enjoys his remarks or finds anything in them particularly pertinent to discussions at hand? I participate in a few other boards where similar behavior is put down as "trolling" and as the work of "thread killers." Most offen...

Lastly, I own a set of paper mache furniture from Dresden or area, circa 1740 or so. They're interesting but not really to my taste. I am thinking of perhaps lending or donating them to a museum for display. There's an interesting collection of paper mache architectural elements at the Caramoor Art ...

I also own a set of original Mies Van der Rohe chairs, but they need to be restored.

/stifles yawn.

Really?

I didn't "call" on Mr. Ellison because I more or less agree with him.

I do hope this doesn't upset your little thesis.

New York was arguably the birthplace of modern multiculturalism, Jan. If that makes it not "properly" one thing or the other to you may I say you appear to have missed the point.

I feel a bit rude for posting this, but Blade Runner was originally set in New York City. The working title was "Gotham City," but Batman's creator refused to let them use the name. Thus the "Times Square" scenery and certain other features, such as a satirical view of the Citiba...

Jan, that is the most simple-minded and philistine take on New York I have ever heard from someone not actually mayor of the place.

And it depends on how you define "Americanization." Lodz isn't too "Americanized." Believe me when I say you can keep the place.

"While Europeans (or only I) feel that NY is neither properly European, Asian, nor American."

Indeed.

I thought you lot had given up this "cultural purity" stuff for Lent.

I don't quite see the point of the exercise. By the time the War is a good idea, we are in an alternate universe where Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, used them, was about to use them on us, said as much, and we had elected Gore Vidal president with Chuck Norris as VP. Anything else is simply ...
