Istanbul (Not Constantinople)

Last Sunday's Turkish referendum, accelerating Sultan ErdoÄŸan's dismantling of the Kemalist republic, brought to mind (as almost any news from that part of the world does) one of my favorite novelty numbers. I meant to quote it in America Alone: The End Of The World As We Know It, but it never made the final cut. However, it did end up in the Canadian Islamic Congress' exhaustive and exhausting complaint about my writing to the Canadian "Human Rights" Commission, the Ontario "Human Rights" ...

Aux Champs-Elysées...

Aux Champs-Elysées Aux Champs-Elysées Au soleil, sous la pluie À midi ou à minuit Il y a tout ce que vous voulez aux Champs-Elysées... My dad liked to bellow along with Joe Dassin's monster francopop hit whenever it came on the radio as we were motoring from Paris south, and all these years later I still know every word of it.

Mark at the Movies

The Graduate

The Graduate is back on the big screen tomorrow, Sunday, in movie theaters across America in a special 50th anniversary presentation by Turner Classic Movies. If it's anywhere near your neck of the woods, don't miss it, if only for a sense of what a hit movie was in 1967. It was a film that, following Bonnie And Clyde, seemed to confirm that there was, indeed, a new cinematic aesthetic, a "New Hollywood". But, on the other hand, it was such a box-office smash it showed the studios that, if you ...
