Goodbye to Ken Russell.



He was crazy, but I loved his films.

Aww, Ken! :( I loved his films too. Lisztomania--they don't make 'em like that anymore. *sniff*

Brazilian football (soccer) legend Socrates, who captained Brazil in the 1982 World Cup Finals. Brazil met Scotland in the first round where my team, rather stupidly, made the mistake of taking the lead. I think it was the last time in the game that we touched the ball as Socrates and his men took us apart, winning 4-1. Football as art.

Ah, yes, I heard about that recently and it made me very sad. The store I work for had a deal with them that fell through because of their closing. While there are other glass companies throughout the world creating breathtaking works (Artel, in Czechoslovakia, is certainly one), the end of Steuben is definitely the end of an era.

Beautiful choice of image, Patric.

art glass has diversified so much and become accessible to the point of being a consumer driven market which cubbyholes makers into mass market manufactures of curios... when genre as a category hits the height of interest in a particular medium it becomes doomed

how sad about steuben and hitchens!

steuben is one of those things that i absolutely think should exist, but it would never have occurred to me to actually buy something of theirs. ironically, now their stuff will attain a whole other level of astronomical pricing because they couldn't stay afloat.

and hitchens--he died on the day the iraq war ended. wow.

Hitchens somehow never made it onto my radar until now. What should I read?

hitchens is his own best eulogist. a brave supremely eloquent spokesman for reason in mortal combat against the intolerance that is religion. "civility is overrated" as he cried fire in our crowded theater being engulfed by madness. he was the candle in a dark demon haunted world. he was my last great hero as irreplaceable as he will be missed.

i am sure richard dawkins will give the last words at his funeral. dawkins has a heavy mantle to bear and some very heavy lifting now.
