    lindsay ellis's impressive skill at milking more film theory 101 out of some truly awful films
    https://youtu.be/pFMiuAtbMO0

    For those who wish to know why Adorno seems to be shitting all over Jazz, trust me he would love to tell you. The upshot is that popular music is shit and valueless, while "Serious Music" such as Beethoven, quote, "derives its musical sense from the concrete totality of the piece which, in turn, consists of the life relationship of the details and never of a mere enforcement of a musical scheme."

    Basically he tries to make am argument that popular music is devoid of all but the merest mechanical necessity to be called "music", and Jazz was just the new hotness at the time. "Rhapsody in Blue" came out in 1924, which pegs Adorno at 27 when it hit the concert halls. Give it a few years to mature and you are looking at an early middle aged dude wondering what the hell these kids are listing to these days.

    Also racism.

    How did he deal with Beethoven's popularity and the commercial nature of his works?

    I was going to say. Trying to argue that, for example, Mozart wasn't pop at the time super ignores that the dude cranked out hella tunes for cash. Heck, I can even argue that due to Mozart's incredibly high technical skill and that he played on the rather new invention of the fortepiano, he was doing the old school equivalent of rocking chiptune dubstep.

    I'm going to guess that Adorno probably thinks Shakespeare is high art as well, when the dude literally wrote a play about a vagina.

    There is a conspiracy theory that Mozart was black and that it was covered up.

    The Mozart one spun off of that, and a photoshopped image of Mozart that a German radio station used to advertise that they were doing jazz.

    Also there might be some confusion due to Joseph Bolonge, aka "Black Mozart"/Le Mozart Noir. They were both contemporary, famed composers and violinists. Although my pet theory is that the name arose to annoy Mozart.
    During Mozarts stay in Paris he gained, reportedly, an intense jealously of Joseph Bologne. Why? Bologne had a musical genius that matched Mozarts own (and was arguably the better violinist), had a better orchestra to play his works (Concert des Amateurs/Concert Olympique, one of the best orchestras in Paris and possibly the world), had a noble title, had the favor of Marie Antoinette and was a reknowned fencer. And he was also popular with the ladies in general.

    Okay. I had never heard of Joseph Boulogne until this post. And I say that as someone growing up with a music history-degreed mother, someone who was inundated by all manner of classical music my whole life, who took a fine arts class at the collegiate level, and taught middle school arts appreciation twice. I feel supremely cheated. His work is beautiful. What on the ever-loving earth?

    I'm happy that you can appreciate this underappreciated genius, and I'm slighty dismayed that you didn't already know about him. As such, later today, I'll write a short article on Joseph Bologne in the Even Cooler Stuff from [History] thread over in the Debate&discussion forum. Joseph Bologne deserves to be remembered; as a composer, as a violinist, as a fencer, as a champion and pioneer of black rights.

    He was a demon in college but lacked the tolls necessary to succeed in he pros.

    In college he may be one of the most perfect players at that level of the game, but at the pro level he didn’t throw well enough to succeed in the QB position and even if he was passable there, coaches weren’t using his running abilities at all.

    I don't know if I should post this here or in the board game thread over in CF, but I think here is more appropriate for now.

    I've mentioned before my love for Achievement Hunter.

    A few years back, while waiting for Rockstar to release their official ones, the AH crew came up with a series of videos called Heists. The idea? Do something criminal in GTA:O, fail miserably, and then get out while everyone dies. Well.. the last part wasn't part of the plan, but still.

    Anyways, looks like they are getting ready to pull a new heist!

    I just picked up Rooster Teeth's other card game, Million Dollars But... So I am intrigued at how this one goes.

    I am 100% not going to look that up because being able to tell red from green is actually very important in my day to day life.

    Wonder if this has anything to do with red-green color blindness, actually.

    Have you seen the animation quality in the latest season of rwby? It's dramatically improved from season 1.

    Camp camp is entertaining, and sometimes endearing.

    They also have Nomad of Nowhere which is charming.

    They're also producing an animated horror comedy series for/with Rob McElhenney

    There is something about Rooster Teeth that rubs me the wrong way. I think the extreme nepotism they have in house is a bit a detriment to the media they are trying to make. I'm pretty sure every female there is sleeping with one of the staff. Of course I kid, and I'm making it sound worse than it is. At the same time, casting your wife/girlfriend in something you are producing just seems really tacky. It's actually one of the reasons why I'm surprised they are casting outside talent now.

    I was extremely disappointed with RWBY and the poser style of animation/models they went with after they did some quality animation in the later parts of the Red Vs Blue series.

    As a tested and retested Red-Green colorblind I can tell you that the effect still works on me.
    Edit: Though to me the after effects looks purple and teal instead of pink and green, respectively.

    I think they are not at all a credible source of gaming coverage but also I don't see how that affects their original animated series output
