Glenn Gould: in the Zone with Bach

Somewhat inexplicably, this Robert Krulwich feature appeared as a science feature on NPR, but as he points out, a genius “in the zone,” playing at a level of is or her own, is no mystery to basketball players or musical greats. Here, documentarian Bruno Monsaingeon captures Glenn Gould in the zone, working out the opening Sinfonia of J.S. Bach’s Partita No. 2 for keyboard. Watching Gould here, I think of another brilliant and frequent inhabitant of the zone, Thelonious Monk — although Monk didn’t need assistance from Bach for his flights. Whether or not you agree, you don’t need to think of what you see here, or what you see in Monk’s video footage, as a science lesson. I, for one, prefer to simply marvel.

The internet just changed: Net Neutrality is dead.

Last Wednesday, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler announced a proposal for new rules that would allow for a “ fast lane” of Internet traffic for content providers who are willing (and able) to pay a fee. [1] The proposal reverses the FCC’s previous commitment to net neutrality and open internet and allows ISP’s like Comcast or Verizon to slow down and censor services that don’t pay the toll.

We have to be totally honest, this situation is seriously grim. But there is still hope. The FCC already knows that the Internet community wants net neutrality, but they think they can put their spin on these new rules and sneak them through. If we can prove them wrong right now with a massive public outcry, we can literally save the Internet once again.

We need to stop the FCC now. Big business groups are already ramping up lobbying efforts with the FCC in swarms since Wednesday’s announcement in support of censoring the open Internet and to ensure this dangerous proposal moves forward. [2]

This is a critical moment. In the last few weeks more than 65,000 people have taken action with us. Can you help us get to 80,000 by the end of the day today?

The murder of young Black Men by police continues.

oh for fucks SAKE

Y’all he was shot in the back…. HE WAS SHOT IN THE BACK…

http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/news/58409680-78/family-hunt-moss-police.html.csp

He was carrying a sword? This mf in my geography class carried a sword to class everyday and when I expressed my discomfort it was dismissed. But this brotha was shot in the back.

and it was a blunted sword.. couldn’t have cut anybody… but white people walking around with loaded rifles in target…

Exactly! This is evil.

Damn. Niggas can’t even cosplay anymore? I would love to see the cosplay community say something about this but that definitely won’t happen

Also: this paper is edited by a clown. It should’ve been in the first fucking paragraph that this dude was cosplaying. I’m reading this shit wondering why the fuck this negro is walking down the street with a sword and obvious answer is hidden almost at the en of the article.

This dude was cosplaying.

He was dressed up in a costume.

Should all black people just stay home on Halloween this year?

Friendly reminder that the police shot a black cosplayer in the back

Jesus Christ, American law enforcement. Get your fucking shit together.

Can we get a massive outcry from the cosplay community for this? This kid was straight up fucking murdered for cosplaying with a fake weapon because he’s black. That is totally unacceptable and we should stand together to make sure that this kind of tragedy does not happen again. Full stop.

Ivan the Terrible and His Son Ivan on November 16, 1581

Ilya Repin

This painting depicts the historical 16th century story of Ivan the Terrible mortally wounding his son in Ivan in a fit of rage. By far the most psychologically intense of Repin’s paintings, the Emperor’s face is fraught with terror, as his son lay quietly dying in his arms, blood dripping down the side of his face.

Ivans expression, yes.

But that tear, that single tear below his son’s eye: that does it for me.

For me, it is more the combination.
