Bibliographilia—Lasch's Roth

Here is the article by Philip Roth which launches Chapter IV of The Minimal Self. Several passages are of interest despite (in some cases because of) not having been referenced by Lasch. It is hardly news that in best-sellerdom we frequently wind up with the hero coming to terms and settling down in Scarsdale, or wherever, knowing himself. And on Broadway, in the third act, someone says, “Look, why don’t you just love each other?” and the protagonist, throwing his hand to his forehead, cri...

Listen to this awesome cover of Don't Stop Me Now

When I was younger, I often tried to pair my playlist with my current mood as opposed to my desired one. If I were wallowing in sorrow because of my inability to approach my crush, I'd find some sappy emo track that resonated perfectly with my brooding demeanor. — Read the rest

Redefining Mainstream American Music

 “We can perform this music in the concert hall, we can talk [academically] about this music. But until people are just hearing it on an everyday, run-of-the-mill, hearing-it-in-your-car basis, nothing really shifts.” – DCMetro Theatre Arts

Go easy on me: why pop has got so predictable

Adele, Ed Sheeran, Abba, Lana Del Rey and Drake all found success in 2021 by delivering more of the same – a result of how our chaotic lives, on and offline, are informing our tasteThe biggest album launch of 2021 began with a social media statement tacitly assuring fans that nothing had changed. Adele was once more in a state of heartbreak – “a maze of absolute mess and inner turmoil … consumed by my own grief” – and that the contents of her album 30 would reflect that, as mired in romantic mis...

Words of the year 2021: Fritinancy edition

Covid-19 turned into Covid 2021, the U.S. presidency changed hands despite TFG’s efforts to the contrary, and we somehow summoned the energy to invent new words and repurpose old ones. Here are my picks for this year’s keywords; scroll to the bottom for previous years’ lists. And stay tuned for the American Dialect Society’s selection of the word of the year on January 7. My criteria are the ADS’s: words (or “lexical items”—acronyms and phrases appear here, too) that were new or newly promin...

Warum es gut ist, in deiner Beziehung über deine:n Ex zu sprechen

Lauren war spät dran für ihr Date – und schlecht gelaunt. „Ich hatte den Verdacht, dass er eine schlechte Wahl sein könnte. Er hatte mich vorher einige Male sehr spät nachts angerufen und wirkte ein bisschen zu arrogant“, erzählt mir die 26-Jährige. Trotzdem freute sie sich darüber, jemanden zu treffen, den sie über zwei Ecken schon kannte (er war mit einer ihrer Freundinnen befreundet), anstatt einen Fremden aus einer Dating-App. Sie war noch nicht lange Single, hatte die Apps aber schon jetzt ...

Warum hassen Weihnachtsfilme Singles eigentlich so sehr?

Willie T. Stokes, Kevin McCallister und der Grinch. Was haben diese drei gemeinsam? Ganz einfach: Sie gehören zu den sehr wenigen Weihnachtsfilm-Charakteren, mit denen ich mich identifizieren kann – weil ihre Story nicht damit endet, dass sie sich verlieben. Als Single gehören zu meinen feierlichen Vorbildern also ein sexsüchtiger, alkoholabhängiger Weihnachtsmann, ein kleines, cleveres Kind und Jim Carrey in grünem Latex. Was sagt mir das? Dass mit der Welt der Weihnachtsfilme irgendwas ni...

The True Meaning of Queen’s Rock Epic “Bohemian Rhapsody”

We’ve all given at least a little thought to “Bohemian Rhapsody.” I myself happen to have given it more than a little, since I and all my classmates had to learn the song and sing it together back in seventh-grade music class. But I haven’t given it as much thought as music Youtuber Polyphonic, whose exegesis “The True Meaning of Bohemian Rhapsody” appears above. “The apex of the 1970s rock experiment,” Queen’s six-minute rock epic “somehow manages to take the transformative structure of...

Check out this Prince interview with Scary Spice from the 90s

I got into Prince too late in life, both mine and his own. By the time I discovered exactly how awesome Prince was, I was in my mid-twenties and would only have less than five years left with the Artist. Beyond being influenced by the treasure trove of musical splendor he produced, Prince's impact on my life was personally significant because of his persona. — Read the rest

Das größte Problem in meinem Sexleben? Diabetes

Wenn du Diabetes hast, ist dein Sexleben, wie auch alles andere, viel komplizierter. Unabhängig davon, welchen Diabetes-Typ du auch aufweisen magst, ob du dich als weiblich, männlich oder non-binär identifizierst, oder mit wem du auch schlafen möchtest, ist Sex für Leute mit Diabetes mit einer Reihe von Vorbehalten und Vorsichtsmaßnahmen verbunden, die es zu beachten gilt. Weil Gespräche über Sex aber immer noch ein Tabu sind und es immer noch ein mangelndes Verständnis für diese Krankheit gibt,...
