The Principle of Uncertaintynoodnik

Thu, 24 Jul 2008 05:14:15 +0000

When I was in London a few weeks ago, I spent a wonderful evening in the company of my cousin wandering the halls of the British Museum (which I might note is free, which both appeals to my hereditary parsimonious instincts and damningly contrasts with standard practice at New York museums.) Moving from the Egyptian […]

Seen displayed in a storefront on E. Tremont Ave, en route to the Bronx Zoo for the King Julian habitat: A black t-shirt with white lettering. Below a rendering of the Stars and Stripes, the legend “My president is a black man”. Seen at Levine’s Judaica store where I tried unsuccessfully to acquire “In the […]

South Africa this weekend won the Rugby World Cup for a second time, seeing off bulldog England’s valiant effort. Since I am big rugby fan and South African, many of my friends expected to be overjoyed. Not so much. Here’s how I would frame my response to the outcome. My love of the game of […]

Kol nidreinoodnik

Fri, 12 Oct 2007 03:03:34 +0000

Probably the moment of highest drama in Jewish synagogue services is Kol Nidrei on the evening of Yom Kippur. The liturgy is amongst the oldest in the Jewish prayer book, and marks the beginning of the 25-hour fast period, which is meant to facilitate a period of deep introspection. When I was a child, I […]

Baraka style video for Portishead remix The indestructible beat of Angola, via Leo Africanus. See too Frederic Galliano’s cultural appropriations. Always engaged, but never married to the Land of Israel — Zionism as fornication, from Azure online magazine. William Orbit old school jam remix African Hip Hop Radio. Can be derivative for the most part, […]

Antonioni in memoriamnoodnik

Wed, 01 Aug 2007 15:26:36 +0000

This entire shot was done in a single take. I am generally not one for DVD commentaries, but Jack Nicholson’s narration for this scene’s cinematography illustrates how serious Antonioni was about the art of cinema. Slate, New York Times obituaries.

I think must have had the same conversation in form if not content that precedes this video a thousand times. It was irritating the first time I had it. Unfortunately for me, it’s never followed by dancehall ragga parodies running through my mind. Fast forward, selector! Hats of Jerusalem Hebrew Baile Funk – Pitom Banu […]

Eagle vs Sharknoodnik

Mon, 11 Jun 2007 17:54:28 +0000

Thanks to the helpful bunch at a Very Short List, I believe I have found a worthy substitute for Borat to satisfy my need for comedic obsessions. Eagle vs Shark is sure to generate a lot of favorable comparisons to Napoleon Dynamite, which is probably a mixed blessing – on the one hand, a lot […]

Their performance on KCRW’s Morning Sounds Eclectic left me cold but this stop motion video using dice (yes dice) is enormously impressive. Their sound is much better with the benefit of production. Via a Very Short List

The Beastie Boys Off the Grid. Past their prime maybe, but still can kick it. Jean Luc Goddard’s Sympathy for the Devil. Worth watching a few times for the camera work and to watch how the song slowly builds through a collaborative process. Bongo Maffin. Because it’s such a tight pop song, the detail that […]

I have my issues with Hitchens — see No Apology and Arrogant Bastard –– but he is spot on with his analysis of Falwell, religious hypocrisy and the ungodly link between Christian fundamentalists and Israel’s right wing (and its supporters across the globe.)  I have no plans to read his book – The New Yorker […]
