There’s Nothing Wrong With The Internet That Using It The Right Way Wouldn’t Solve
“We don’t need digital detox. Or more accurately, we do need a detox, but we have misidentified the toxin. Interacting online is not inherently poisonous, and online interactions are no less meaningful than talking face to face. Different, yes, but just as valuable. If we experience problems relating to each other online, I believe it’s […] Mon, 22 Jul 2019 22:01:52 +0000
In The Moment: The Essential Challenge For Dance
There is no full way to capture the presence of dance except through dance itself. This tension—between dance and the representation of dance—is always at the heart of dance; dancers feel it, too, and so do the people who watch dance and the people who write about it. – New York Review of Books Mon, 22 Jul 2019 21:02:58 +0000
“Avengers” Edges Out “Avatar” To Become All-Time Movie Box Office Champ
What do all of these films have in common, besides an undying commitment to computer generated aliens? They’re no longer truly competitors now that they’re all owned by Disney, which is slated to continue its monopolistic dominance well into the future, with nearly a decade of theatrical releases and television series planned for Disney’s streaming […] Mon, 22 Jul 2019 20:32:34 +0000
Extinction Rebellion Protests Have Disrupted The UK. Is This The Way To Get Action On Climate Change?
The disconcerting thing about such radicalism, at this moment, is that it is the activists—rather than the state or law enforcement—who have the facts on their side. One of Extinction Rebellion’s favored tactics is to quote the first line of the executive summary of the 2018 report of the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change: […] Mon, 22 Jul 2019 20:01:43 +0000
Sometimes Our Most Important Architecture Is Ordinary
“Architectural preservation is often an issue of grandeur, both in a sense of size and richness, and decay. When we think of buildings that already been lost, they are almost always imposing structures—cathedrals, skyscrapers, temples. Yet the places where we enact our daily lives, and which reflect them even more than grand architectural statements, are […] Mon, 22 Jul 2019 19:31:22 +0000

Lyon and Paris Fail the Future
By: Frank Cadenhead.  The Tuesday news of the failure to find a replacement for Serge Dorny at the Opéra National de Lyon leaves opera in France’s second-largest city adrift.

Opera and Cigarettes
By: Frank Cadenhead. It was not just “politically incorrect.” The Belgian government has accused the Opéra Royal de Wallonie in Liège of possibly violating a law by receiving financial support from a tobacco company.

Waiting… Waiting… Waiting…
By Frank Cadenhead: The article in today’s Le Figaro could not conceal the anger and frustration.
