    Der Spiegel ^ | April 12, 2013 | Dirk Kurbjuweit
    The Nazi years lie like a bolt over the memory of a good Germany, of the composers, poets and philosophers who gave the world so much beauty and enlightenment in the 18th and 19th centuries: Kant, Hegel, Goethe, Schiller, Beethoven, Wagner and the Romantics. only a few years, a nation of culture was turned into one of modern barbarians. Could the philosophical abstraction, artistic elation and yearning for collective salvation that drove the country also have contributed to its ultimate derailing into the kind of mania that defined the years of National Socialism? After all, it wasn't just the...

    The Korea Herald ^ | October 11, 2018 | Kim Arin
    South Korea’s culture minister put an end to the debate surrounding whether BTS members would be exempted from military service during a parliamentary audit Wednesday. “All of the BTS members say they will definitely enlist for military service,” said Do Jong-hwan who heads the country’s Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism. His remarks came as Rep. Cho Kyung-tae of the main opposition Liberty Korea Party had asked about Do’s stance on the recent contentious issue: whether BTS members should be granted conscription exemptions on the grounds of the band’s flourishing music career. The debate was initially sparked by a lawmaker...

    Have you ever really listened to the lyrics of the songs you grew up enjoying? Sometimes when you examine what an artist is saying, you find meanings you never dreamed of in the songs. More often than not, the lyrics are far less innocent than they sound on the surface. The 1970s were full of songs that wouldn’t get recorded if they had been written today. From songs that express some nasty ideas outright to tunes with more subtly creepy messages, there’s plenty to be shocked about in the hits of the ‘70s. Here are nine songs from the ‘70s...

    “Tonight’s SNLperformance is gonna be crazy!!!!,” tweeted Kim Kardashian West to her million followers on Saturday. “Tune in!” On the 44th season opener of “Saturday Night Live,” viewers were expecting Ariana Grande, who canceled because of “emotional reasons.” So Kanye West stepped up to do the honors. West performed three songs, including “I Love it” with Lil Pump and “We Got Love,” with Teyana Taylor. As the credits rolled, West performed “Ghost Town,” wearing one of Donald Trump’s red “Make America Great Again” hat, which producers told him he could not wear on stage. “You see they laughing at me,”...

    National Review ^ | 9/28/2018 | DANIEL GELERNTER
    For years, the maniacal self-absorption of Music Director Alan Gilbert allowed the New York Philharmonic to deteriorate into a sloppy shambles and become the worst of the world’s best orchestras. This season, there is a new music director, Dutch conductor and violinist Jaap van Zweden. Van Zweden gave his opening subscription series this weekend, and the transformation was obvious: Under his baton, the orchestra is no longer sloppy. Now it is merely unmusical. The concert opened with the debut of Filament, a new work by contemporary composer Ashley Fure that sounded like a parody of late 60s experimental music. The...
