But, seriously, don’t be surprised if “Gen Z” (the kids born 2004-present) do go hard-right.
Gen X and Millennials being gave us a false impression that each subsequent generation will continue being more and more progressive, but that’s just not the case. The Silent and Greatest Generations were much more to the Left, economically, than the Boomers, who grew up under Carter and came of age politically during Reagan. The Hippies became Yuppies and Corporatism ruled all. The same thing is happening now with Gen Z.
These kids are still young though. There’s still time to change their minds. We have to message, we have to have a coherent message and deliver it to them instead of relying on old methods. Conservatives are out pacising us on messaging now because the Center drowned out the Left for decades and then sat on its laurels expecting the trend to just continue with 0 effort, aka the Clinton 2016 style of campaigning.

Curiosities: ♦ She is a soprano

studied singing at Sibelius Academy and Hochschule für Musik Karlsruhe. ♦ Her talent for
music was first noted when she sang the song “Enkeli taivaan” (the
Finnish version of “From Heaven Above to Earth I Come”) in the Kitee
church hall at age three. She joined the church choir and started taking vocal
lessons. At age six, she started playing piano. ♦ She is
respected by other musicians of the metal genre and is an influence on their
work; for instance, Simone Simons of Epica names her as her inspiration to
study classical music and apply that vocal style to a metal band.

The following film footage, dating from 1904, is probably the first ever to show Albanians. It is part of a longer documentary film made by the British political figure Arnold Muir Wilson (1857-1909) from Sheffield in Yorkshire, and the early British cinema director Frank Mottershaw (1850-1932), also from Sheffield. Wilson, a member of the Sheffield City Council and of the Conservative Party, also served as honorary consul for Serbia in Sheffield and promoted trade ties between the two countries. In 1904 he travelled to Belgrade and worked with Mottershaw to film the coronation of King Peter I Karadjordjević of Serbia on 21 September of that year. The resulting 35 mm silent film – 54:19 minutes and 1,480 metres in length – was first shown in London in December 1904 and in Serbia in April 1905, with English and Serbian subtitles. It was restored in Bologna in 1999-2004 and is presently preserved in the Yugoslav Film Archives (Kinoteka) in Belgrade. It is said to be the oldest film shot in Serbia and contingent territories. The “Albanian” portion of the film, beginning at 42:10 and being no more than 1:16 minutes in length, shows Albanians and other people standing about and walking through the courtyard of an inn and in an adjacent market street in the Muslim town of Novi Pazar, now in southern Serbia. In 1904 Novi Pazar (Alb. Pazari i ri or Tregu i ri; Turkish Yeni Pazar) was the capital of the Ottoman Sanjak of Novi Pazar and indeed, from 1881 to 1912, the region was part of the Vilayet of Kosovo. This may explain the presence in the film of so many Albanian figures, recognisable by their white felt caps and distinctive clothing, in a region which today is inhabited by a large majority of Bosniaks, with only a very few Albanians. Thanks go, in connection with this presentation, to Bardh Rugova, Associate Professor of Albanian at the University of Prishtina, for his research on the background to the film.

British artist Andy Goldsworthy works in the fields and forests near his home in Scotland using natural elements as his media. His pieces have a tendency to collapse, decay and melt, but, as he tells Fresh Air’s Terry Gross, “It’s not about art. It’s just about life and the need to understand that a lot of things in life do not last.”
The list of elements Goldsworthy has worked with includes ice, snow, mud, wind and the rising tide. In one piece, he used twigs to fashion a giant spider web hanging from a tree. In another, he decorated a stone wall with sheets of ice. He has also lain in the rain to create “rain shadows” in the shape of his body on city streets.
Goldsworthy refers to his creations as “ephemeral works.” He says, “When I make an ephemeral work, when it’s finished, that’s the moment that it ends, in a way.”
But Goldsworthy’s ephemeral creations aren’t completely lost to audiences upon completion; a new book,Andy Goldsworthy: Ephemeral Works: 2004-2014, presents a collection of photographs of his work. There’s also an exhibition of Goldsworthy’s photos opening Oct. 22 at the Galerie Lelong in New York.
Looks like I’ll be making the trip to our favourite ghost nerd’s museum at some point, for a gander at his spoopy antiques. I’m hoping they will have an exhibit of Zak’s wardrobe from 2004 to present because some of those outfits were not only crimes against fashion, but quality nightmare fuel.
