Carvey has aged well as a comedian. I never would have guessed that back in the day.
The Neoplatonists - who believed philosophy was a practice, not a theory - talked about three phases for the soul: - Going Forth - Remaining - Turning Back and going home. It seems to me that life has phases like this, and that adulthood has a lot of "going forth" to many things. That is how the many selves get generated, right? But a little time spent "remaining" with what is, and "going home" to one's secret world each day - just a few moments - maybe can protect one from the madness of planning and traffic. What do you think?
If you had a book coming out from S&S this year you wouldn't be calling for a boycott. Therefore, you're a hypocrite.
Since you ask why i sneer at people pushing for a boycott of S&S, I'll repeat myself. Because it punishes every single writer they publish, and I'm not big on punishing writers. You yourself, however, have no problem with it.
Okay, you win. You're the most virtuous non-POC alive.
Beck, that's so funny. "You think you're so virtuous, Noah; what you don't understand is I'm defending a principle! It is I, me, brave Sir Beck, who is truly virtuous!"// I understand free speech, thanks. I was making fun of you. Weren't you the one tying yourself in knots to condemn the idea that people should boycott S&S? If S&S dumping him isn't a free speech issue, why sneer at people asking them to do so?// You don't need to say a word defending Milo is you scurry about amplifying his slurs against people he's targeted and pop up to say over and over that the people criticizing him are the really bad guys.//I'm suggesting that you might examine your principles if you keep siding with Nazis. That's all.
Yes, you're so very caring. Such a better human than everyone else. I've never said a positive thing about Milo. You're delusional. The CPAC thing's political. I don't care who they have as their speaker. Nothing to do with free speech.S&S was a business decision. What you don't get is I'm not defending a person. It's a principle, and one you don't really value. Doubt you even understand the legal definition of free speech in the US. Otherwise you wouldn't think these are free speech issues.
I'd like to add to Noah's statement that from what I've seen of Yiannopoulos's writing, his tabloid-level journalism doesn't always have the necessary confirmation.
Well, sure, I presume not many other folks care about enough to bother.// Care to defend Milo further? Ready to denounce CPAC for rescinding its invitation? S&S for censoring him? They've all stifled his free speech, I understand.
The Free Speech Movement was about allowing political activism on campus. At the time, it meant civil rights and ant-war activism. But in the long run, it also allowed for conservative student groups to exist--like the ones that invite Yiannopoulos to speak. That's how he is a beneficiary of the Free Speech Movement.
People? It's only you, troll.
"follow you here"? I read the article and you commented. I responded. If you don't want people to respond, don't post...?// and yep, you enable white supremacy and bigotry. You claim that's not your intention, and I'm willing to extend you the benefit of the doubt. But if you don't want people to say that's what you're doing, then you should stop racing to defend Milo everytime anyone posts an article about him.
Great to hear your back...to carry on this amazing legacy .....
The true genius of Wittgenstein is that he did not exist.
Ah! Nothing like the good old days! The seventies definitely were the times we're all we could think about was party, party, and more party. Also, I lived the little shack that sold 25 cent hamburgers. We used to get them after going to club Venus.
I'm waiting for a charter airline catering to smokers.
it really puzzles me that "smoking allowed" restaurants/bars aren't allowed or even of interest. there should be places that smokers can go and choose to smoke inside and take whatever risk there is of second-hand smoke. that would be a booming business!
I'd say a notable exception is The New Criterion's James Bowman.
well , Thanx TD, now i'm Craving! Squid Squid Squid Squid SQUID! Calamaaaaa! been long time since i savored those tentacles and i could Smell them fresh as you pulled the spines with your kitchen zoo crew..you actually were the StrayDog..all eager all learning, Ears UP yep ya took me to Martick's finally here.. the new Harbor police these days would be sending in counter-co-intel under covers to such places of social culinary poetic glory , places of Defiant Reistance , chapels to freethinking, and Food with existential importance thanx TD for the tour again, for the process of "Adjusting my eyes to the darkness", i ask the readers, didn't you feel yourself Doing that? TD's narrative fills the room, i always enter no knocking demanded, just a password, "open the suitcase".
Sorry, thought you were talking about Alan Cabal. Forgot about oddball Harris!
Is Alan Cabal the alt-right? His politics are too scattered to tell. Don't mean that necessarily as a criticism of Mr. Cabal, but he's hard to pin down.
Why is the alt-right always talking about shekels?
What I remember is having to knock on Martick's door and waiting for him peep out the curtain and decide if he was going to let you in to eat or not. it was always a tad nerve wracking..
Sounds like a wild time in the city
Where's my Pictures of You (#79) Russ? I need my Friday fix NOW
I hope your boys appreciate the treasure trove of family history you have collected. My father is not nearly as nostalgic and so has kept far fewer family photos and letters than you. Although I'm older than your boys, if they are anything like me, their curiosity will grow as they mature.
father john misty is the worst.
Come to the Golden State! Tom will take you to see the artful Dodgers and I'll re-live my childhood memories of being glad that Pac Bell Park isn't Candlestick.
Guaranteed Rate? Thanks, Spike. Shows how much I read sports pages in winter.
I hear ya Russ. Roids made Roger think the splintered wood was a horsehide baseball, he said. And the White Sox now play at Guaranteed Rate Field. I kid you not.
You neglected to mention the huge dugout clearing fight that followed Clemens throwing the bat. I wish I could find the pictures I took of the field filled with fighting players. And I was happy to see Ortiz hit a home run at the last game we went to last year, one last time.
Not true. The boys were resistant, for some reason, and more often than not it fell to me.
Sorry Russ, gotta take your boys side on this one. I totally believe the fact your bros made you take out garbage in the 50's/60's but don't for one second, believe that you didn't pass this chore onto your boys once you hit Baltimore. Maybe you resumed the job once your boys went to college but c'mon, you are hardly shy about passing on the dirty work to the youngster s, " as an educational experience".
No Trashmen reference? Not the closest reader, I might have missed it, but jeez.
Your discretion is appreciated..You might want to define "unit."
