life is short while the artistic production has a life of its own.

for those who've made it this far, i have to warn you not to look for synopses but mere reflections meant to give one a conceptual-view, and -flavor, of the works i comment on.
When I started commenting here, Amazon was not about as many things as it's become. So, while I still stand by the early version of "my own word… Lire la suite

Celibidache - You Don'T Do Anything - You Let It E&hellip <b>DVD</b> ~ Sergiu Celibidache
4 internautes sur 4 ont trouvé ce commentaire utile 
Being the happy owner/re-viewer of the great Celibidache, I came to this film with a certain amount of apprehension. Indeed, considering the bounty of music&wisdom of the former owed something to the conductor's son, as director of that production, I had thought another film on the subject could not even come close.

Upon installing and playing many an hour worth of audio and video content on my JVC EX-A10, I can say that it is… Lire la suite
The Ascent of Money: A Financial History of the Wo&hellip de Niall Ferguson

Ferguson comes up again as an unabashed defender of empire(s), especially those espousing financial capitalism as modus operandi. So much so that he touches revisionist overtones at times.

Had this been just a history book, however partial, Ascent of Money would have been only half bad. However, Ferguson's ideological positions only add insult to the periodic injury produced by financial capitalism.

Staying with history for a while, the book makes for a quick traversal of modern financial instruments and some of the supporting institutions and ideologies. Assuming the role of historian of finance, Ferguson doesn't seem to worry about proving anything; a narrative from… Lire la suite
