Hans Zimmer's The Oil. From the soundtrack of Dunkirk (2017).

If you check out the comments on this video's YouTube address, you can see a lot of glowing comments. Hafta say I cannot really sympathize, since I went away from seeing Dunkirk slightly disappointed. To me, it was not so much a movie as an artistic exercise.

The Shadows with Atlantis. Released as a single in 1963.

If you say The Shadows you say Hank Marvin. And Bruce Welch. And Fender guitar. And Vox amplifier.




More ominous signs of the intellectual, cultural and moral rot taking hold among our "elites": a Middle School Principal in Chicago has decided that an innocent 1930s mural depicting white children having fun in a winter landscape has got to go because it is not 'diverse' enough. Via The Chicago Sun-Times:

"A Depression-era mural depicting white children playing outside in the winter was removed from Percy Julian Middle School in Oak Park because school officials said it failed to represent the school’s diversity.

While some said the mural was upsetting to students of color who felt it excluded them from the school, a local historian likened the removal to a “modern-day book burning.”

Julian Principal Todd Fitzgerald announced the weekend removal in an email sent to school staff Monday.

“I have had students approach me pointing out that this picture does not represent our student body or the diversity of Oak Park,” Fitzgerald wrote. “We will be working with the Social Justice Club and our parent Diversity Committee to create a mural/canvas that better represents Julian Middle School.”

Cynthia Brito Millan, a coordinator for the middle school’s Social Justice Club, said the push to remove the mural began in February at a district school board meeting. Students expressed frustration about an atmosphere of exclusion for students of color — who make up 45 percent of the student body — and cited the mural as an example.

“This mural made students feel invisible because it doesn’t reflect the current student body,” Brito Millan said. “How can a student learn in a healthy environment when they don’t feel they are being seen?”

What utter madness. Should The Nightwatch (1642) by Rembrandt Van Rijn, on display in the Nachtwachtzaal in the Amsterdam Museum....

... not better be relegated to the darkest corner of the museum's attic, lest "people of color" in The Netherlands' already very diverse society feel excluded?

Or these busts of past administrators at Harvard Medical School:

All despicable Whites! How horrible!!! Would it not be better to get rid of at least a couple of them to better reflect today's die-versity? Preferably of the ones suspected of harboring conservative thoughts?

Oh wait. Let's not give anybody ideas.

Here is the self-hating asshole/clown/jerk responsible for this insane decision, "Dr" Todd Fitzgerald:

You can email the skunk on this address:

Do not mince words. Call the bastard by his/its name. No need to be civil. There is a war going on.
