I learned in the LA Times this morning that David Frost died. He did have a significant influence in my life, in that I learned about the power of satire. My brother always told me that my early attempts at it were sarcastic rather than satirical. I was a great fan of That Was The Week That Was (TW3 the American version) which came on before Jack Paar. There appears to be no existent recording of that program although the Tom Leher songs are still popular (in Russia).

This, I think, is the last TW3 from Great Britain. In keeping with the celebration of the March on Washington, this episode includes a reference to the situation in Mississippi, "I want to go back to Mississippi" sung by Millicent Martin. The l language is disturbing, but it would not have been surprising then (I can vouch for this).


The segment starts at 4:50. Expect to hear lyrics like:

"Where the Mississippi mud
Kinda mingles with the blood
Of the n----rs who are hanging
From the branches of the trees"

and

"cutting up a chocolate-colored koon.”

My memory at the time was Five, Six, Seven, Eight - We Don't Want to integrate.

My memory was that we were seriously sick.

Diego Ortiz, Alma Redemptoris Mater a 6 voci

A sublime piece of music conducted by someone I thought was Anthony Bourdain at first quick glance.

Hadn't noticed it at first. Really interesting, showing the Orthodox spirit. I'm curious that Syrians and Lebanese are some exceptions among Orthodox regarding the issue of using statues of the Theotokos. Maybe it's an influence by Maronites  ???

Since Christians are a minority among Muslims, I believe the interconfessional boundaries between the Orthodox and the Catholics (Melkites, Maronites, etc.) are less emphasized in the Middle East.

Actually people shown in the vid are of one branch of religion, namely eastern orthodox with little theological/liturgical differences between them. Their arguement is much more cultural.

If you pay attention to the scoreboard, the Greeks were ahead but the Armenians came from behind and attacked for the win.  Like that deacon at 1:51.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WDYzkAVP07w

Actually, the sakkos is an innovation:

Quote
Originally, all bishops wore a phelonion similar to the one worn by priests, but woven or embroidered with a multilayered cross pattern called the polystavrion ("many-crosses"). The use of the sakkos was a privilege bestowed by the Basileus (Emperor) upon individual patriarchs as a sign of his personal favor. The first literary evidence for the garment is found in the writings of Theodore Balsamon, Patriarch of Antioch (ca. 1130–1140). By the 13th century it worn by all the patriarchs and a few high-ranking archbishops—but only on Easter and the Great Feasts of Pentecost and Nativity; other bishops continued to wear the polystavrion. After the Fall of Constantinople (1453) it came into general use by bishops along with the mitre, derived from the Imperial crown, as a sign of their temporal authority within the Rum millet of the Ottoman Empire. The sakkos is now worn by all Eastern Orthodox and Byzantine Catholic bishops, regardless of rank. Unlike Western pontificalia which may be worn by prelates who are not bishops—provided they have the privilege of doing so—the sakkos may only be worn by a bishop.

Lovely eye candy in this video.  Those vestments are interesting...I'm not sure if I prefer it to the regular phelonion in this sort of situation, but it's growing on me.

John Elefante: "This Time"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vdYPjpl5pI0

Former "Kansas" lead singer and producer John Elefante is using his newest single "This Time," to share the story of his adopted daughter's birth, and in the process, bring some attention to Online for Life (OFL), an educational non-profit working to rescue babies from abortion so they can live to make their mark on the world.

"I can't imagine life without my daughter, Sami, and it just breaks my heart that pregnant young women much like her birth mother, instead of choosing life for their babies, are denying them the chance to be born," Elefante said. "If our song can in any way bring attention to this issue and encourage those who are considering abortion to choose life through options such as adoption, then we couldn't be happier." Visit http://ThisTimeForKeeps.com for more info.

My inner Protestant feels still somewhat uncomfortable with stuff like this. Thank God we aren't emperors' puppets anymore.

Originally, all bishops wore a phelonion similar to the one worn by priests, but woven or embroidered with a multilayered cross pattern called the polystavrion ("many-crosses"). The use of the sakkos was a privilege bestowed by the Basileus (Emperor) upon individual patriarchs as a sign of his personal favor.

My inner Protestant feels still somewhat uncomfortable with stuff like this. Thank God we aren't emperors' puppets anymore.

Your inner 21st century political correctness rather; Protestants revered their kings and princes. Cuius regio, eius religio and all that.
