"Leeches and bleeding served a similar purpose in previous models of the body. However, we moderns 'express our feelings' in lieu of our fluids, because everyone knows that those who don't are more disease-prone, and more subject to cancer, ulcers, or a host of other dire ailments." --Against Love … [Read more...]

I'm looking for a blogwatch Someone who gets things fixed Ask yourself this question: "Do you want to get rich?"Grotesque Anatomy: Vast, comprehensive, challenging, helpful, and quite wrong (I say with love) post about same-sex marriage, replying in depth to, well, me. Also, good post about Watchmen. More on both of these posts presently. This week is insane for me, so... watch the skies, I guess. I'll try to get to both of these posts by Friday.Kairos: "What's the best, most accessible book … [Read more...]

"GROSSE POINTE BLANK" IS AMORAL? Weird-o. I thought it was one of the most blatantly moral films of the 1990s. I mean, "have babies and stop killing people" doesn't seem hyper-subtle to me. It struck me as the funny, non-nihilist, sadder-but-wiser, and did I mention funny? version of "The Ice Storm." … [Read more...]

THE NOVEMBER ISSUE OF CRISIS isn't online yet, but it's really good. Cover article on demonic activity by someone who initially regarded the assignment as a "spooky thrill," but found out it was much, much more intense than that. Very useful piece on Left Behind--don't get caught in the Rapture-mania. Also, I have a book review (of Amy Chua's World on Fire: How Exporting Free-Market Democracy Breeds Ethnic Hatred and Global Instability), and the always-acute Sandra Miesel has a guest column on … [Read more...]

Carnival locale; disaffected protagonist; isolation (Kansas and Utah film sites helped with this, apparently); slow, draining, but engrossing pace; makeup for a generation of Siouxsie and Bauhaus fans. It's great, though, for two reasons: … [Read more...]

Longtime readers know that I disagree with Prof. Solum about how much confirmation hearings should focus on "ideology" (I prefer the more confined term "jurisprudential philosophy"), but his posts are always illuminating.Sed Contra: Emmaus Ministries, helping male prostitutes get off the streets.
