Why etiquette governs the art of writing: Lolita, Ulysses, and the arrogance of genius
 
04:21
Martin Amis has made a name for himself by being an unafraid writer, having published over a dozen novels over 40 years. Here, he eviscerates James Joyce and others by explaining that stream-of-consciousness style writing rarely (if ever) works and that most writers need to better understand their role in the storytelling process. After all, he posits, "the writer is like a host and the reader is like a guest."

And decorum in writing is a completely different concept. And all it means is that the content should suit—the style should suit the content. It has nothing to do with good taste. No writer worth anything is bothered by good taste. What is good taste? It’s a shallow consensus of a certain kind of right thinking individual or group of individuals. It’s measuring what you’re saying to how you’re saying it and tremendously foundational principle for writing. And the experimental writer will, of course, instinctively transgress against these rules. But you’ve got to realize that all your guide ropes are being jettisoned, and the goodwill of the reader is not infinite. It’s usually very high as you open a novel but if you mess around with the reader at your whim that goodwill is very quickly used up. Stream of consciousness—even Joyce has a very low success rate with it. You have to be a genius to write stream of consciousness, and even the supreme genius, Joyce, wrote his long novel —he spent 15 years on Finnegan’s Wake—which is flat out unreadable. And even Ulysses, only about 25 percent of Ulysses works. And I’ve come more and more to the conclusion that if it’s social realism, your writing, and it obeys—it means the novel is a sociable form. And the writer is like a host and the reader is like a guest. And if you, when you visit a Nabokov novel it’s as if he has given you his best chair nearest the fire and given you his best wine and given you his full attention in the most tactful and sensitive way. If you went around to Joyce’s house you’d find the address didn’t exist. And you would find some sort of outbuilding where Joyce lives, and that he wouldn’t be in, apparently. And then you would shout for him and eventually, a figure would appear, and he would talk to you in a language you’d never heard of before. And instead of giving you a delicious dinner, as Nabokov does, Joyce would give you two slabs of peat around a conger eel and some repulsive drink he’d made himself. To leave social realism—and I’ve done it, and most writers do it a couple of times in their career—is a great statement of arrogance and introversion, and there are huge risks involved in leaving the path of social realism. And writers will be tempted to do it every now and then, and sometimes you can bring it off. But you say goodbye to all those—all the etiquette of social intercourse which governs the novel, as it governs all our dealings.

Star Trek Movie Review (2009): Don and Murph
 
11:00
Don and Murph's review and spoof of the new Science Fiction film Star Trek which is directed by J.J. Abrams and stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Leonard Nimoy, Eric Bana,Bruce Greenwood, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, John Cho, Anton Yelchin, Ben Cross and Winona Ryder Music by - Kevin MacLeod And theme by Matt Simpson Plot (From imdb) - The film opens with the Federation starship USS Kelvin investigating a "lightning storm" in space. It turns out to be a black hole, and the Narada, a Romulan mining vessel, emerges from it and attacks. The Kelvin's captain, Richard Robau (Faran Tahir) is captured and killed by the Romulan captain Nero (Eric Bana). First officer George Kirk (Chris Hemsworth) takes command and sacrifices himself and the Kelvin by ramming it into the Romulan ship in order to allow the rest of the crew to escape. During the escape, George's wife Winona (Jennifer Morrison) gives birth to a son: James Tiberius Kirk. About 22 years later, Kirk (Chris Pine) grows into an intelligent but reckless young man. He meets Uhura (Zoe Saldana) and Captain Christopher Pike (Bruce Greenwood) in a bar in Iowa, where Pike convices Kirk to enlist in Starfleet Academy and follow in his father's footsteps. During his eventful education on Earth, he is suspended for cheating on the Kobayashi Maru designed by the half-Vulcan, half-human Spock (Zachary Quinto). Despite this, Kirk is smuggled onboard the USS Enterprise by his friend, Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy (Karl Urban), as it is sent on its first mission to investigate a distress signal originating from the planet Vulcan; Captain Pike commands the ship, with Spock as his first officer, and Uhura is also assigned to the ship. En-route, Kirk realizes that the situation is similar to the one 25 years ago when his father died and, with the help of Uhura and McCoy, manages to convince Pike and Spock that the Enterprise is heading into a trap. When the Enterprise arrives, they find the rest of the Starfleet ships destroyed and Nero's ship, the Narada, using a drilling apparatus to tunnel to the planet's core. After promoting Spock to captain and Kirk to first officer, Pike surrenders to Nero, giving Kirk and Hikaru Sulu (John Cho) a chance to destroy the drill. Nevertheless, Nero destroys Vulcan with a small amount of "red matter", dropped into the planet's core, which creates a black hole that consumes the planet from within. Six billion of the Vulcan people die, including Spock's human mother, Amanda (Winona Ryder). Nero puts the Narada on a course for Earth with the intention of destroying it. Kirk wants to follow Nero immediately, but Spock insists that the Enterprise should regroup with the fleet as per their orders. Spock has Kirk forcibly removed from the Enterprise and stranded on the nearby ice planet Delta Vega, only for him to be rescued by an aging Vulcan who reveals himself to be Ambassador Spock (Leonard Nimoy). This elderly Spock explains that, 120 years in the future, he tried to save the Romulan planet from being destroyed by a nearby supernova, using the red matter in his ship to create a black hole that would neutralise the threat. Though Spock did not complete his mission in time to save Romulusresulting in Nero's vow to take revenge on Spock and the Federationhe stopped the supernova, and the resulting black hole transported Spock's ship and the Narada into the past. Spock takes Kirk to a nearby Starfleet outpost and introduces him to Montgomery Scott (Simon Pegg), a master engineer and pioneer of transporter technology. Scott and Kirk are transported back to the Enterprise and, taking Ambassador Spock's advice, Kirk goads the younger Spock into attacking him and demonstrating that he is "emotionally compromised". As a result, Spock relieves himself of command; because Kirk is the next-highest ranking officer, he becomes the new captain of the Enterprise.

ch 23) The Clinton Presidency and the Crisis of Democracy
 
01:23:16
chapter 23: A People's History (Of The United States) Howard Zinn. ~ Chapter 23, "The Coming Revolt of the Guards", covers Zinn's theory on a possible future radical movement against inequality in America. Zinn argues that there will eventually be a movement made up not only of groups previously involved in radical change (such as labor organizers, black radicals, Native Americans, feminists), but also members of the middle class who are starting to become discontented with the state of the nation. Zinn expects this movement to use "demonstrations, marches, civil disobedience; strikes and boycotts and general strikes; direct action to redistribute wealth, to reconstruct institutions, to revamp relationships." [p.639-640]

Thanks for watching, subscribe for more videos: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCB79it1Sb5Mdark90oGHMoA?sub_confirmation=1 Trump tells CBS' Glor that the EU is a global foe Driving the Day  OH MY … Sacha Baron Cohen’s new Showtime show, “Who is America?” is going to get lots of attention in D.C. Here’s a clip from Twitter of various Republicans -- including Reps. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.) and Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.) and Trent Lott -- seemingly endorsing putting guns in the hands of kids. Two-minute clip http://bit.ly/2KUlLSh The show premieres at 10 p.m. tonight.  PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP to CBS’ JEFF GLOR in SCOTLAND: GLOR: “What’s your goal from the Putin meeting?” TRUMP: “I’ll let you know after the meeting. I have absolutely -- it was mutually agreed. Let’s have a meeting. I think it’s a good thing to meet. I do believe in meetings. I believe that having a meeting with Chairman Kim was a good thing. I think having meetings with the president of China was a very good thing. I believe it’s really good.  “So having meetings with Russia, China, North Korea -- I believe in it. Nothing bad’s gonna come out of it. And maybe some good will come out of it. But I go in with low expectations. I’m not going in with high expectations. I can’t tell you what’s going to happen. But I can tell you what I’ll be asking for and we’ll see if something comes of it.”  GLOR: “The Russians who were indicted. Would you ask Putin to send them here?” TRUMP: “Well I might. I hadn’t thought of that. But again -- this was during the Obama administration. They were doing whatever it was during the Obama administration. And I heard that they were trying -- or people were trying to hack into the RNC too, the Republican National Committee, but we had much better defenses.  “I’d been told that by a number of people. We had much better defenses, so they couldn’t. I think the DNC should be ashamed of themselves for allowing themselves to be hacked. They had bad defenses and they were able to be hacked. But I heard they were trying to hack the Republicans too, but -- and this may be wrong -- but they had much stronger defenses.”  -- TRUMP SAYS THE E.U. IS AMERICA’S FOE. GLOR: “Who is your biggest competitor? Your biggest foe globally right now?”  TRUMP: “Well I think we have a lot of foes. I think the European Union is a foe, what they do to us in trade. Now you wouldn’t think of the European Union but they’re a foe. Russia is foe in certain respects. China is a foe economically, certainly they are a foe. But that doesn’t mean they are bad. It doesn’t mean anything. It means that they are competitive. They want to do well and we want to do well.”  GLOR is also interviewing Trump at the White House Wednesday when he returns from the summit.  -- NBC’S CHUCK TODD spoke with U.S. AMBASSADOR TO RUSSIA JON HUNTSMAN on NBC’S “MEET THE PRESS”: TODD: “Let me start with a simple question. Is this summit still on? And if so, why?” HUNTSMAN: “Well, listen, it isn’t a summit. I’ve heard it called a summit. This is a meeting. In fact, it’s the first meeting between the two presidents.
