The Nobel Prize for literature is one exception, with laureates receiving nearly $1 million...

Some Problems With The U.S. Administration’s Plan To Make Architecture Classical Again

Aside from obvious comparisons to fascist Italy, it’s just not great to take direction from a fringe group of neo-classicists, some of whom aren’t architects. Then there are the safety requirements for federal buildings, which leave little money for “classical” elements. And, as any architect knows, “classicism and modernism are not opposites; they exist on a continuum, and choosing between them is unnecessary.” – The Atlantic

Audible And The Big Publishers May Finally Have Figured Out This Caption Thing

In settling out of court, apparently,  “Audible has agreed not to include the copyrighted works of seven plaintiff publishers in its ‘Captions’ program without express permission.” This does not, of course, apply to works in the public domain, and indeed, “Audible sources confirmed to PW that the company currently has no plan to move forward with the Captions program beyond its limited pilot with public domain works for students.” – Publishers Weekly

Learning To Dance Like Fred Astaire, Or As Close As You Can Get

That’s the quest of some dancers in American Contemporary Ballet as they try to recreate Astaire’s routines. “Although Astaire’s style — the nimble and quick footwork and weightless slides — is not technical, re-creating his dancing for the stage requires a high level of musicality and nuance” – and leaves some dancers feeling like imposters. – Los Angeles Times

Why Are One-Shot Movies Suddenly Back In Vogue?

With films like Birdman and last year’s The Body Remembers When The World Broke Open and Oscar fave 1917 edited to appear as if they’re single shots, what’s the deal? The “single-shot” movie has become much more popular in the past few years, perhaps “the technical virtuosity required of a one-shot film marks its director as an auteur. And these films feel somehow pure — compared, at least to the CGI trickery and hyperactive editing of blockbuster superhero movies.” – NPR

Author Says The UK Educational System Is Dreary, Needs More Laughter

Michael Rosen blames the Reformation – truly. That time period was “when they thought the only way you could be virtuous was to be modest and serious, so humour was pushed aside, seen as frivolous … even dangerous. And that seeps through into education today, so there’s a slight fear of subversiveness or laughter, as well as a dismissal of it. And for some of us, humour is a means of survival.” – The Guardian (UK)
