American criminology

From the bird to make an elephant and inflate to the size of the globe

“You can’t put a loaded gun on the stage if no one means to shoot it. Can’t promise anything.”/A. P. Chekhov.

A teenage girl who requires everyone to call herself”Lady bird” among other things is in her senior year. The school is Catholic with priests and nuns. They have problems, children are naughty, the RCC is in crisis, they are too kind, and one son killed himself with heroin. Her father is depressed, old and out of work. Mother works as a nurse for seven is afraid of poverty and generally hopeless because she grew up in an alcoholic family. The girlfriend of the heroine suffers from excess weight and therefore she has no boyfriend. Lady bird’s friend is gay and afraid to come out.

Why then are the faces of the parents so sad, the children look anxiously into the distance in fear of once again moving, and the evening prayer of the family is silent?” Continue reading

“Bohemian Rhapsody”: the birth and fall of a legend

I can’t assess the impact of Queen on the world — I was born after Freddie mercury died, and I didn’t see Live Aid or the Barcelona Olympics or anything else. But at the same time their songs have been with me since childhood, imperceptibly filled the information space, and the existence of extraordinary Britons who recorded “Bohemian Rhapsody” (Bohemian Rhapsody), as if everyone knew.

The cult of the group, as I think, just lies not in the number of fans, but in its fame. You can not know the facts of the biography of musicians, their favorite colors and the number of spouses, not to have in the brain the entire discography by release date, but to know that these people came together and made such and such a track — and this is in my understanding of fame.
