Jean-Philippe Rameau (French, 1683-1764). Rameau gets it: classical music should be bold, bright, fresh, hopeful, and non-sleep-inducing. Just as Shakespeare could turn a phrase, Rameau could turn a note. [Audio; 1 hour, 12 minutes].

Alex once asked (paraphrasing) “how can Wagner be a musical genius when he only wrote one memorable piece of music (Ride of the Valkyries) and even that one isn’t exactly jaw-dropping?” Yes.

Oh, well, what can you do? At least all the good versions of the song are sung by White gentiles. It’s sad that nearly […]

Good rock concert. Yes, the lead singer of the Ramones was a Jew, but the main songwriter (Dee Dee Ramone, real name Douglas Colvin) was a gentile. So it all evens out, doesn’t it? [Video, duration is 26 minutes]

As Lovey Howell from Gilligan’s Island: “How does one become a Snoop Dogg, anyway? Does one become a dog first and then a snoop second, or can one become a snoop first before becoming a dog later? Really, it’s all terribly confusing…” Her husband, Thurston Howell III: “You’re overthinking it, Lovey. Just be a good […]
