  • Album review: Everything’s Beautiful attempts to reintroduce Miles Davis to the modern world

    The National ^ | June 6, 2016 | Rob Garratt
    Commemorating the 90th birthday of Miles Davis – and Miles Ahead, a biopic of the iconic jazz trumpeter’s life – we have the “new", Davis-inspired album Everything’s Beautiful, a conceptually confused but captivating virtual duet with trendsetting pianist and producer Robert Glasper. The late-1990s remix series Panthalassa has aged badly, and Glasper is the obvious choice to move Davis into the 21st century – he is a credible jazz innovator himself, with enough crossover success to reach a mainstream audience. Rather than delivering the straight remixes he was initially asked to oversee, Glasper raided the Davis archive, sampling choice nuggets...

    "Tennessee Waltz" is a country music song with lyrics by Redd Stewart and music by Pee Wee King written in 1946 and first released in January 1948. The song became a multimillion seller via a 1950 recording – as "The Tennessee Waltz" – by Patti Page. As of 1974, it was the biggest selling song ever in Japan. Mandolin and singing covered by me, o7jimmy.

    Let Freedom Ring by Abby AndersonAbby Anderson is an 18 year-old contemporary country singer/songwriter and native Texan. Glenn Beck first met Anderson when he attended the graduation ceremony of Pat’s school. Anderson, who is a classically trained singer, songwriter, pianist, and guitarist, was asked to perform at the event. While she initially had planned on singing a different song, she felt moved at the last moment to sing “My Country ‘Tis of Thee.” “She just starts to play the piano. It’s one of those upright pianos. And all of a sudden this amazing song spills out of her,” Glenn explained....
  • Rupert Murdoch Defends Moses Movie Casting: “Since When Are Egyptians Not White?”

    Rupert Murdoch took to Twitter tonight to defend 20th Century Fox's new movie "Exodus" that casts Christian Bale as Moses, and a variety of white actors as Egyptians. There’s been scuffle on Twitter ever since Murdoch made his observations. And a lot of this stems from a quote director Ridley Scott gave Variety about why he didn’t use Egyptian or Arab actors for the film. He said: "I can’t mount a film of this budget, where I have to rely on tax rebates in Spain, and say that my lead actor is Mohammad so-and-so from such-and-such," Scott says. "I'm just...

    On a recent flight to New York, I was delighted when a stewardess came over and gave me a bottle of champagne. ‘This is from the captain — he wants to welcome you on board and hopes you have a great flight today,’ she explained. You’re probably thinking ‘what a lovely surprise’. But while it was lovely, it wasn’t a surprise. At least, not for me. Throughout my adult life, I’ve regularly had bottles of bubbly or wine sent to my restaurant table by men I don’t know. Once, a well-dressed chap bought my train ticket when I was standing...

    If Newt Gingrich were being nominated for sainthood, many of us would vote very differently from the way we would vote if he were being nominated for a political office. What the media call Gingrich's "baggage" concerns largely his personal life and the fact that he made a lot of money running a consulting firm after he left Congress. This kind of stuff makes lots of talking points that we will no doubt hear, again and again, over the next weeks and months. But how much weight should we give to this stuff when we are talking about the...

It is also the kind of question that hardly needs answering for the millions who have tuned in to the YouTube film of Alina Kabaeva performing a decidedly provocative gymnastic routine.

    Forget immaculate make-up or witty one-liners. The secret of seduction is as simple as standing next to your less attractive friend. Studies show that our judgments of people vary according to the company they keep. And if that company is less attractive, or dare we say it, ugly, the first person seems all the more appealing.

    "Grid girls" are as much a part of international motorsports as high-octane fuel, ear plugs, and fiery crashes. Before each race, grid girls take up positions behind the starting line, holding up the national flag of the team and the vehicle's number. They also, it seems, spend a good deal of time just hanging out and looking hot. Long may they wave.

    Evolution has led to women, but not men, getting progressively beautiful, according to scientists. Researchers found that attractive women have more children than their less attractive counterparts and that a higher proportion of those children are female. Once those daughters become adult they tend to be good looking themselves and so the pattern is repeated as women over the generations become steadily more aesthetically pleasing. As attractive couples are less likely to have boy than a girl, men, in contrast, remain as aesthetically unappealing as their caveman ancestors, the scientists claim. The findings have emerged from a series of studies...

I'd like to note here two noteworthy responses. One is from Judea Pearl, father of the late Daniel Pearl, murdered by Islamists in Pakistan in 2002: When Danny was in captivity,...
