    • How the Rational Irrationality of Capitalism Is Destroying the World
      Capitalism leads to actions only a self-destructive wastrel would want, but does so pure rationality. Think of rationality as being of two types: Means-ends and internal-coherent. Means-ends rationality says: “I want to get to Point A. How do I do that?” Or, “I want to grow a garden so I can eat food. What are […]

Not your usual night at the ballet

Budding choreographer, Liam Scarlett, works out the kinks in his piece Sweet Violets for the Royal Opera House Ballet with dancers Leanne Cope and Thiago Soares.  The ballet is based on the true story of the murder of a prostitute in the 19th century, foreshadowing the Jack the Ripper era.  I love this rehearsal.  The dance is tense and sexy but the rehearsal is full of unintentionally funny and painful moments.

  1. OT, but BDBlue unearthed this great post on Hillary Rosen. She and the Ds deserve each other.

    • Ah, sorry, I just posted a link to Rosen’s HuffPo WWTBQ? piece in the other thread, I should have checked this one first. I’m just finding it hilarious that some people seem to be embracing a hack spinmeister as a combination righteous warrior and persecuted victim.

      Even David Axlerod says the occasional true thing or something he says might get unfairly taken out of context, that doesn’t make him Crusading Standard Bearer of Truth or anything other than a slimy pol who’ll say and do whatever he’s told.

    • Who’s embracing Rosen?? I think you are confusing some kind of support for her with righteous indignation that she was forced to apologize, once again, to the mothers of the year. As a working mom, I don’t want her to apologize for me. I’m sick of having motherhood rammed down my throat as the be all and end all to a woman’s life and the loftiest thing she can aspire to. She could win the Nobel Prize but if she didn’t stay home with her kids, her life is worthless.

      Don’t make the mistake of thinking that I give a f^&* about Rosen. You guys should know by now that I never watch the news and rarely watch idiot pundits and spinmeisters.
