Where He is Appreciated

Happy 90th Birthday, Fr. Buckley!


"Let's remake the original trilogy, except this time with a girl who saves the elder Skywalker."

We'll find out in a month whether this is an accurate plot synopsis of the new Star Wars movie. (Though I intend to find out through others and not by watching the movie. Boycott Disney!)

Let's revisit Joseph Campbell but instead of making the movie about a rite of passage for a young man, it'll be that of a young woman, who is equal to a man. Yawn.

The Sound of a Flower

The film’s slogan reads, “In a time when women could not perform pansori, her story begins.” Read more about miss A's...

Does Suzy Sing Pansori? Apparently yes.

This'll be a film to watch for Bae Suzy Fans! miss A

Good, Clean Family Fun?

Opening this weekend... The Peanuts Movie.

The soundtrack for the trailer leaves much to be desired -- the same sort of noise that accompanies many other children's animated movies.

Thanks Obama

James Howard Kunstler at Boston College

Glad someone at BC thought of inviting him; too bad it was very poorly attended. How well was it publicized? Did anyone in philosophy or theology go? (I thought of trying to organize something for him while I was there but I didn't have many connections or any $.)

He mentions his experience with BC SJWs there: Good Little Maoists

As evidence: Eradicate Boston College Racism Movement

Has BC changed that much?

James Howard Kunstler: The Long Emergency

Wednesday, October 28, 2015
7:00 p.m.
Gasson Hall, Room 100

James Howard Kunstler had a successful career as a novelist and journalist. He published his first critique of American architecture and urban planning, The Geography of Nowhere: The Rise and Decline of America’s Manmade Landscape in 1993. He followed Geography with Home from Nowhere: Remaking Our Everyday World for the Twenty-First Century in 1996. The City in Mind: Meditations on the Urban Condition (2001) is Kunstler’s third book in this urban-planning trilogy. In it he examines eight cities—Paris, Atlanta, Mexico City, Berlin, Las Vegas, Rome, Boston and London—discussing the ways in which their design and architecture have shaped their cultures and successes. For his next work, Kunstler trained his eye on the oil crisis. The bestselling book The Long Emergency: Surviving the End of the Oil Age, Climate Change, and Other Converging Catastrophes of the Twenty-first Century (2005), explores the sweeping economic, political and social changes that will result from the end of access to cheap fossil fuels. A seasoned journalist, Kunstler continues to write for The Atlantic Monthly,, Rolling Stone, The New York Times Sunday Magazine and the Op-Ed page where he often covers environmental and economic issues.

Alex Kurtzman Doing a New Star Trek Series

Bad idea, CBS.

Dominic Cooper, not Seth Rogan, as Preacher

So it's got one thing in its favor. Still, it is another comic book adaptation. Is the story a good one for people or for men, especially since it is coupled to a religious claim, even if in the guise of fiction? It is doubtful... Trailer

Did This Weekend’s New STAR WARS Duracell Commercial Just Drop A Giant Spoiler For THE FORCE AWAKENS??

How's this different from the strong female characters in a wuxia novel/series? The cultural significance of this shift in story-telling in a franchise first marketed to men and boys and the SJW endeavors of Disney. Wuxia novels were probably like that from the very beginning, perhaps due to some strand of egalitarianism in early 20th century progressive China. Or, because the authors thought it was necessary to have female characters in their stories, and the best way to do it was to make them members of the world of jianghu.
