Posted in: Decades later, Yoko Ono to be credited on 'Imagine' See in context

But Yoko Ono has as much artistic talent as your average 9-year-old child.

The predictably ignorant ballad of the intellectually indolent.

It's not her fault you don't get it.

And I've taught your average 9 year old's Visual Art. I can assure you you are wrong. Of course.

Alex Einz

she is a talentless charlatan and would be absolutely unknown without him, she has nothing to do with art and just a money grabbing

Right.

That's why the Museum of Modern Art in New York would run retrospectives of her work (2015), The Venice Biennale recognise her a lifetime achievement award, Austria, Germany, the UK, Spain, Japan also running retrospectives of her work.

That just happens if you are talentless, right? Pffft.

Have a go, and see how you do. By your reasoning, you are fair chance of a retrospective at MOMA, in, say, 20 Years.

I eagerly await the show.

John n Yoko bought an extra floor of the Dakota apartment building just to house Yoko's two thousand mink coats.

Did John buy any of those coats. Did he buy the extra floor? Does he have ANY responsibility?

Comments like this are symptomatic of the Western narrative that presents Yoko Ono as some kind of conniving little temptress that latched onto John Lesson with the sole intent of destroying the Beatles.

It's racist, misogynistic nonsense.

Actually, I think she is a very good artist and she was an important member of the Post Modernist Fluxus group in the 60's. I see her as a bold, intelligent idealist who left Japan to tap into the heartbeat of contemporary global philosophy in New York - a radical move for a woman from her background. Check out 'Cut Piece'.

She is highly regarded and decorated in the Art world.

She is also philanthropist, a strong promoter of Human rights and a generous donator to disaster funds such as the Japanese Tsunami.

Outstanding Human, in my opinion.

Posted in: Woman gets 13 years in prison for fatally abusing 3-year-old daughter See in context

You know, kids love and trust their parents to look after them and protect them, not torture them to death. Imagine how this dear little girl must have felt through this ordeal. It must be terrifying.

3 Year olds are to be guided and taught through that difficult year - that's your job as a parent. Not to abuse them to death for being a 3 year old.

Disgusting.

I think Japan will beat Australia comfortably at home. I watch the Socceroos very closely and they are very, very ordinary right now. Just a very average team with average cattle.

If for some reason they only draw though, they may be in big trouble because they won't beat the Saudis at home. The Saudis are pretty decent.

Posted in: Trump tilts 'America First' toward 'America Alone' See in context

It was always clear that he has no diplomacy skills, that diplomacy is something he doesn't have the least scrap of interest in anyway.

How much damage is he going to do to the US's alliances, treaties, standing in the International community, etc etc by the time he is done though? Where is he going to leave them?

The US are basically going through this process of flipping the bird at the rest of the world. That's an arrogant, silly thing to do for a country that is hardly the world's most popular superpower, globally speaking.

My gut feeling is that it will not end well for the US. In an age where we are more globally connected than ever before, this is very counter to the global Zeitgeist.

It's truly an embarrassment.

It's myopic, selfish, isolationist. It's the petty workings of a feeble and ignorant logic given far, far too much opportunity to implement itself.

Shameful.

Syria and Nicaragua! it would be hilarious if it wasn't so tragic.

And in my opinion Tamarama calling 321 million people "stupid", "myopic" and "ignorant" because half voted for someone she doesn't agree with politically is incredibly small-minded and intolerant.

Oh, come on clamenza. Don't be so precious.

He is their Federally elected political leader. They, and their system elected him. Something like 42% of the country didn't even bother to vote, to wit, take preventative actions against his potential election. There is some complicity in that. It's irresponsible. That kind or irresponsibility has to be subject to collective criticism.

For all the brilliant minds and smart folk in the US, whether they like it or not, this is what they collectively have given us.

It's simply not good enough.

Wow. Esteemed company there, USA.

I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris,

The French are far too smart and sophisticated to do anything so stupid.

I'm sorry, but my distain for the US grows daily at present. I can't help it. I'd like things to be different, I really would, but I just can't respect a country that is so stupid. So myopic. So ignorant. I know there are lots of Americans here, and this isn't intended to be a personal attack of any kind. But, this Trump show is just too much. It's not the only factor, but at the moment his 3 ring circus is just appalling. It's bewildering. It's a political Lampoon, except it's not. It's a political parody, except it's not.

The rest of us don't deserve to be subjected to the idiocy. We really don't. It's not fair. It's not right.

Frances is right, of course, but this kind of observation needs to be from within to have any real gravitas. And where are the voices from within?

It's foolish, provocative, insolent. But it's really just for show.

The minute they actually aim one of those things at a real target will be the end of them. They appear to know this, too.

I think it virtually a certainty. I imagine the shock when we make that realisation though?

For example, how does Christianity's discourse shift with any kind of credibility to accommodate the revelation?

Over the years I have become increasingly interested in the genre of Science Fiction, partly for that fact that it quite often works around this very question. And it is a fascinating one.

Humans may not live long enough to ever find out, though.

Toasted Heretic

Millions have been conditioned not to question the hypocrisy and double standards.

Beautifully put. To the point where they can flaunt it as fragrantly as this, and it gets lauded by the media and blinkered masses who simply cannot see the forest for the trees. It's quite astonishing, really.

It's simply hard to believe that they get away with it.

America: Bringing weapons of death and destruction to a location near you.

This is disgusting. The US peddle their machines of war, and then proceed to posture and tell everyone how wonderful it is, what a great deal it is.

It's truly a country with no conscience in my opinion, with no real sense of global responsibility.

Just what the old needs - more arms.

Disgusting.

As I look to the right of the JT page, 4 of the 5 most popular stories are about Donald Trump.

I don't care about Donald Trump enough to be reading that much about him. And, the problem is, it's ALL ABOUT HIM.

That's not the way things should be with a US President.

Should we take a guess on how long he is going to last?

I say he will be gone before October.

They used to say, beware Greeks bearing gifts, now I'm not so sure its not the Chinese we need to be wary of with their gift giving

Based on what? Why?

Sounds to me like Xi has invited Nikai to come, which would be good for both China and Japan. That's what good neighbours should be doing.

Where does this lingering mistrust of the Chinese really come from?

How does China deserve it, comparatively speaking?
