AA Gill on Britain's Brexit... and Trump's America

AA Gill died in 2016, shortly after Donald Trump was elected on a “Make Anerica Great Again” platform in the US, and just as “Brexit” began to reach crisis rhetoric in the UK.

It’s snorting a line of that most pernicious and debilitating Little English drug, nostalgia. It was the woma...

"The most prosaic of routines can now deliver delight. Like a bona fide night of restful sleep. Or a prolonged moment of enriching silence. Or, say, the leather chair..."

"... that Al Jirikowic, 68, an art critic and former Adams Morgan bar owner, now sits in five hours a day because there’s nowhere to go. The Churchill, as his throne is known, is where Jirikowic meditates, contemplates the end of civilization and figures out what to eat for lunch. Whatever the case, he’s comfortable. 'I’m thankful I can sit here and space out,' he said. 'You learn to like your solitude. If you don’t, you go nuts.'"  From "A comfy chair, a locked door, an old record. Covid Than...

And smile, because history shows that we are doing much better than you think. This subversive idea belo...

Was Winston Churchill “The Greatest Briton”? A Short Claymation Looks at the Darker Side of the Prime Minister’s Life

“In 1962, when British filmmaker Richard Attenborough began researching what would become his 1982 Gandhi film,” writes Lauren Frayer at NPR, “he asked Jawaharlal Nehru, India’s first prime minister, how he should portray his late colleague.” Gandhi was revered, treated as a saint in his own lifetime, long before Attenborough arrived in India. But Nehru begged the filmmaker to treat the man like a mere mortal, with all his “weaknesses, his moods and his failings.” Gandhi was “much too human...
