Word of the week: Macabre

The video depicts a mass shooting in a church by a lone assassin who looks very much like the grinning 45th president of the United States. It is violent, gruesome, tasteless, and obviously faked, but the adjective the New York Times editors chose for the headline above Monday’s story was none of those words. It was, instead, macabre, a word with a long, lurid, and murky history. The organizer of the American Priority event at which the video was screened said the video was part of a “meme...

François Ozon on dramatising the biggest abuse scandal to hit the French Catholic church

The director’s new film, By the Grace of God, retells the story of a paedophile priest. Ozon reveals how the victims’ stories unlocked his own painful memoryFor most film directors, the nail-biting action unfolds on screen. Not, however, for François Ozon. The theatrics over his latest film played out in the French courts as he fought a last-minute attempt to stop it being released and found himself at the centre of a legal and national controversy. Today, Ozon can almost but not quite laugh abo...

Inspired By the East: fertile fascination – or racist pastiche and plunder?

The British Museum show is a bold attempt to look at orientalist art as a cultural exchange that influenced paintings, ceramics, travel books and fashion. Our writer gauges its successThe British Museum’s new exhibition, Inspired By the East: How the Islamic World Influenced Western Art, attempts to present orientalist art as not only one where western artists traded in cliche, but also to show how portrayals of the east in the west were more than just racist pastiches. It attempts to present or...

The Second Amendment Isn’t The Second Commandment

A pastor named James Pence. As a nation we have seemed to somehow elevated the Second Amendment to the status of one of the Ten Commandments as if God positively said, “Thou shalt bear arms.” Of course the irony is there is the commandment that forbids murder, and nowhere in Holy Scriptures do we see the necessity of having weapons. [ … ] The times call for bold action once again in the face of the national epidemic of gun violence by restricting a class of weapons to only the military and our l...

NYCC ‘19: Wilson, Shammas, Alfageeh & Henderson on Orientalism in comics & the White, Western gaze - The Beat. Rashid began proceedings by citing theorist Edward Said and describing Orientalism as “a Western style for dominating, restructuring, and having authority over the Orient.” The othering that Orientalism does to Asian and Arab cultures, he continued, is “a tool of colonization, a means of convincing people that some people are less worthy of their humanity.” The panellists nodded along,...

Active Shooter, Bomb Threat, or Just Rumors

“There’s an active shooter at South Carroll High School!!! God, I hope Eamon is safe! What can we do!!?” That is what I heard through my wife’s sobbing when I picked up the phone at 2.48 on March 20, 2014. As my son had played “Amazing Grace” on violin for the grieving families of the two victims of the Columbia Mall active shooting just two months earlier, my mind went into full alert overdrive, my vision narrowed, and my hands began to sweat. “How do you know there is an active s...

WaterBricks for Safe Water Storage

Considering that you can live for approximately three weeks without food, but only about a week without water, clean water is vital. To make sure you have a safe water supply and that it is stored correctly to be clean and pure when you need it, consider using WaterBricks.  I have used them for almost 10 years and find them rugged, easy to fill and store, carry and stack, and very dependable when I’ve needed them. They sell for $180 for 10. At $18 a brick, they are reasonably priced....

Learning to Believe in Fairy Forts

In the summer of 1975 I hitchhiked through Ireland for 3 weeks on $78.00. I stayed at youth hostels. I wrote this story when I returned. In June of 2019 I went back to Ireland with my family. I rediscovered this story story when I returned. I'll let you determine if this story really happened. Mr. Finneran was a short man with thick shoulders and large calloused hands from decades of farming. I first met him in Glanmire, Ireland in 1975 when I stayed at the Irish youth hostel he ran. Wh...
