Tea Party a gogo

IGNORE the above date, it's actually December 24, 2010; I'm updating an old post with new stuff. Read my recent articles at American Thinker, TCS Daily (now at Jim Glassman's Ideas in Action), GOPUSA, David Horowitz's NewsRealBlog, and The Tenth Amendment Center:

Ain’t YouTube grand? Folks upload one treasure after another. I found these two gems recently and I’m dedicating them to Mark Steyn, who seems to have a taste for song. The first is of the great Italian basso Cesare Siepi singing Cole Porter circa 1962. Siepi is the very definition of “suave.” Then, as Steyn’s from the Great White North, we have the indispensable Jon Vickers in a rendition of “Ich grolle nicht.” What a voice; what an interpretation.
...and for extra credit, identify these folks:

Election Fraud in November

Go to TCS Daily and check out my articles about the problems for election integrity this November, and be sure to watch the videos:

Today we bring you a little "music of the spheres"; namely the duet that concludes Act I of Die Walkure. This is about as good as it gets: Leonie Rysanek and the great Jon Vickers. It's from German TV circa 1972. Many thanks to whomever posted this wonderful concert performance.

The Alternative to UVR

Read Ultracon's recent article at TCS Daily. And be sure to watch the short video that accompanies it:

Ultracon comes through again with more of The Divine Angela. This time a promo for a recent EMI recording of Madama Butterfy. Ultracon is also pleased with the Pinkerton, Jonas Kaufman, a tenor with some meat on his voice. Ultracon likes big heavy dark voices, don't cha know.

Perhaps Ultracon's all-time favourite tenor is Jon Vickers. Ultracon also heartily approves of Nicolai Gedda. And of course the only bass in history was Nicolai Ghiaurov (see last post).

Ultracon doesn't know how this melding of conservative opinion with opera videos is working out for the folks. Nor can Ultracon even guess at the effect of constantly referring to himself in the third person.

ULTRACON: It's self-contradicting, like an oxymoron. Why?

Federal Overreach and the States

Congratulations, Independent voters of the Bay State. Scott Brown now becomes one of this Missouri boy's favorite senators. We expect more stunning developments from Massachusetts. And while you're here, check out my new article hot off the presses at American Thinker: Federal Overreach and the New States' Rights Movement
Today, we pay homage to Ultracon's candidate for the finest bass of all time: Nicolai Ghiaurov. Nick's voice was not only titanic, it was, IMHO, one of the few bass voices that was beautiful. BTW, I'm updating this post because the previous YouTube video was taken down. I recently screened Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows, which featured the scene in Don Giovanni where the Don is sent to Hell. Here's Nick as the Don in that scene. In case you're not familiar with the opera, Nick is the second voice.ULTRACON: a piquant blend of paleocon, neocon and 9/11-con, with zesty libertarian overtones...Try it, you'll like it.
