Everything You Know About Sgt. Pepper's Is Wrong

Thousands of apocryphal tales about Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band have been told and retold in the 40 years since the record's release, but the loveliest is a true one. Immediately following the completion of Sgt. Pepper's in the wee hours of April 21, 1967, the Beatles decamped from Abbey Road Studios to Mama Cass' apartment in Chelsea, where they flung open the windows and blasted an acetate of the album into the London morning at top volume. In the surrounding buildings, windows slowly rose in reply, and neighbors leaned out to listen to the Beatles' newest songs. It's a delightful image, a metaphor for the flood of joy and wonderment that the four ...

The importance of moral imagination
Post Date: 2007-06-07 05:29:16 by YertleTurtle

This term and concept can now be found in many of the recent books on ethics, particularly professional ethics. In fact, one of the books is titled Moral Imagination1. This book defines moral imagination as "an ability to imaginatively discern various possibilities for acting in a given situation and to envision the potential help and harm that are likely to result from a given action." If we examine this definition it involves at least two skills, one being able to imagine many possibilities and their consequences, let's say a creative element, and the other being able to morally evaluate the possibilities, a more rational element (but not purely rational). The parallel with ...

Ray Bradbury: Fahrenheit 451 Misinterpreted

When the Pulitzer Prizes were handed out in May during a luncheon at Columbia University, two special citations were given. One went to John Coltrane (who died in 1967), the fourth time a jazz musician has been honored. The other went to Ray Bradbury, the first time a writer of science fiction and fantasy has been honored. Bradbury, a longtime Los Angeles resident who leads an active civic life and even drops the Los Angeles Times letters to the editor on his views of what ails his town, did not attend, telling the Pulitzer board his doctor did not want him to travel. But the real reason, he told the L.A. Weekly, had less to do with the infirmities of age (he turns 87 in August) than with ...

"The Godfather" on ethnic, racial stereotypes
Post Date: 2007-06-02 15:54:25 by YertleTurtle
4 Comments
Ethology is the scientific study of behavior, but not all of the greatest ethologists have been scientists. Musicians and artists don’t have to be good at human ethology, but novelists and playwrights generally do: Shakespeare, Tolstoy and Dickens had a very deep intuitive understanding of our behavior. It’s easy to think of other names to add to that list of great intuitive ethologists, but one might not seem very obvious: Mario Puzo. You might not have heard of him but you’ve certainly heard of his work. He wrote The Godfather (1969), which might be defined as a work of ethno-ethology: it describes the behavior of competing ethnic groups. A lot of the subtlety and ...

An even better version of "Yawara" ("Judo," but as a metaphor for the "judo" of love: "Don't think you're going to win [in the game of love]," goes the first line, "If you think like that, you're gonna lose..."), with lilting grace notes so distinctive of Japanese enka, is here.Misora Hibari - Kanashii Sake [Sad Sake](Ignore the gab-fest for the first 1:30 of the video)[My translation] The sake I'm drinking all alone at a barTastes like my tears at our partingAs I drink, the face of the guy I want to forgetKeeps floating around in my glass"I'm happier by myself,"I say to myself as I weepStill loving the man ...

Hey! Aluminum Overcast showing her lovely self on You Tube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1DcfyWaD0vQ A B-17G, the model with the chin turret is lumbering the local Skies. The rich, deep, song of Wright R-1820 Cyclone engines from this siren who is a remnant of a fleet of 12,726 rugged legends. A third of which were lost in combat in WW II.

It represents America of another era, a day when most of the wealth of the nation was distributed far more evenly. A day when ...

It is among the most difficult pieces to play for that instrument and is commonly included as a required repertoire piece in violin competitions all over the world. Johannes ...
