Turn to Tolstoy

Posted by

Really good article(behind Times Select Firewall) tonight by a guy named Rory Stewart in the New York Times talking about Tolstoy's novel “Hadji Murad.”  It's a good read if you can get to it.  I really liked the last line of the article:

What Tolstoy recognizes, and what ultimately makes this the great portrait of occupation, is Hadji Murad’s autonomy.

Military is ordering injured men to return to combat

Even by today's standards, this is horrific.  Is it even possible to be cynical anymore?  You'd have to go out of your way to think of terrible things they aren't actually already doing.

Interconnectedness

Posted by

Paul frequently points out the fact that every sector of his entertainment world seems to be connected to every other part of it. They Might Be Giants playing songs for McSweeney's who have Jon Hodgman write for them who is then on "The Show with Ze Frank" and also associated with This American Life, and Jon Stewart, who has theme music from They Might Be Giants, so many things overlapping. I think alot of this is happening as a result of the crazy amount of interconnectedness available through la intarwebs. I think in the next 100 years the world will change at a crazy rate due to the possibilities of people with very specific ideas being able to suddenly be a large group where they would have always been a lonely individual even just 10 or 20 years ago. FASCINATING!
