Frank Gehry's Disney Hall. - Slate Magazine
was happy to read what thought about disney hall when it opened in 2003: "An attraction of going to the symphony is trading in your regular self for a better-dressed, more cultured one. Symphony orchestras these days are looking for ways to attract younger, hipper audiences as their core supporters grow older, while at the same time preserving the sense of refuge that will always be classical music's main drawing card. Gehry's design cleverly explores both sides of that divide: It is a building where the members of a democracy can go to feel refined, to be lifted from the everyday."

Adam Kurschwell & Drucilla Cornell—"Feminism, Negativity, Intersubjectivity" | PRAXIS International, Issue 4 (1985) | CEEOL
"For Kristeva, feminine negativity is the unrepresentable, non-violent disrupter of all fixed linguistic and social codes, 'grounded' in the originary relationship to the pre-oedipal mother. Kristeva’s 'femininity' is both destructive power and life-enabling source. In it she sees the potential and home of a mode of relating that is captured by neither repressive totality nor hierarchized difference. However, we will suggest that Kristeva’s sole reliance on the negative makes this goal unreachable, and indeed brings her close to the very tendencies that she wants to avoid. Although Kristeva is well aware of the dangers of separatism, absolute rejection, and abstract negation, her entwinement with the Lacanian framework makes escape difficult. Worse yet, her psychoanalytic approach permits the expression of the longing for a relation beyond the dictates of the Oedipal narrative, but cannot completely escape its spell."

sit down man, you're a bloody tragedy: Paperbacks and Pictures as Portals (2008)
from comments: "'Vengeful self-construction,' lovely. That was the thing with the Manics, wasn't it? They were always accused by the press of being 'nothing more' than the sum total of the books they'd read, as if their learning was a wobbly scaffold they'd erected to disguise a more fundamental lack of 'self.' But that was rather the point, was it not? There was no intact, whole, 'authentic' self to fall back upon. Which is...another reason why their appeal to teenage girls...was so direct and powerful: young women are trained more rigorously than young men in the capitalist notion of being what you consume. The ideal woman is indeed a (self-)construct of brands, photographically self-aware gestures, magazine talk, advertising-led aspiration...To turn that dynamic on its head and instead to make consumption...a way out of capital's training is a deeply appealing, satisfyingly aggressive option, particularly if you can't or won't take your aggression out elsewhere."

"Find enclosed one Batmans..." — I love Watchman, but hated the movie - that aside,...
I pretty much only liked the opening credits (and the fact that all the accessories were correctly dated). the movie said everything and nothing about the transformation of new york city in the past twenty years.

CEEOL—Studia Universitatis Babes-Bolyai - Historia, Issue 1-2 /2008
"Since the year 1980, the concept of 'confessionalization' has been one of the main interpretative categories for the historiography on early modern Germany. ...formulated by Wolfgang Reinhard and Heinz Schilling in the late 1970s and in the early 1980s. [The] second part [of this essay] is devoted to the objections to the concept, divided into four categories: macro-historic criticism, the discussion on the stages in the confessionalization process, the controversy surrounding the issue of theological truth within the process of confessionalization, and finally the critique of the so-called 'etatistic narrowing,' namely, the top-to-bottom approach to the concept of confessionalization."

Steven Wells—Manic on the Streets of London, NME, March 1991 | Richey Edwards's MySpace Blog
"Pop music has many functions, one of which is to articulate and reflect the breathless, cynical, clenched-fist optimism of arrogant teenage naifs who seriously think they can change the world by screaming over a back-feeding guitar. The Manic Street Preachers - operating in a vacuum - want to make that pop music." (via danched)

"Come, come hear my story How we set out to corrupt and destroy This future Rising The business friend came round today With teeth clenched, he grabbed my neck I threw him to the ground His blue shirt stained red The north will rise again.

In the Bronx, Blight Gave Way to Renewal - New York Times (2007)
Charlotte St. 1977–2007 in the eyes of nytimes: "[F]ew streets have illustrated the city’s capacity for destruction and rejuvenation like Charlotte Street. On the desolate land that Mr. Carter walked 30 years ago are houses like the Mitchells’, now worth $500,000. Early one recent evening, you could hear the sounds of a water sprinkler, birds chirping, the low rattle of the elevated train in the distance and little else. . . . Thousands of residences were developed using public subsidies, city-donated land and tax abatements. . . .Now primarily a mix of Asian, African-American and Latino families, it is a sleepy three-blocks lined with clean sidewalks and white-painted wrought iron fences. There are worn welcome mats at the front doors and . . . chipmunk ornaments in the yards. . . .The Mitchells bought their house for $52,600 and paid off their mortgage in 11 years. 'We have the suburb in the city . . . ,' [he] said. 'And it’s been that way from day one.'

D.A. to retry Lisker in mother's 1983 slaying -- latimes.com
why is the d.a. doing this?guy served 26 years for a conviction that's now been overturned as based on faulty evidence . . . are we so punitive that we have to spend tax dollars trying dig up new evidence after more than a 1/4 century, given that I'm pretty sure that double jeopardy means they can't just try to convince a whole new dozen people to convict on the same evidence that's already been successfully challenged? srsly, what is the damn point?

Gabion: The dark knights return: four profoundly unfashionable buildings in London.
I actually like the new british library (well from photographs), though I have certain ideas about the interior shots I've seen. and I can also see the fascination & interest in the mi6 building and the one with the chimneys. no.1.poultry, however, is one of the vilest buildings I've seen. provokes a very similar disgust in me as venturi's buildings do.
