04/17/22 – Happy Easter

CURRENT EVENTS

Happy Easter

BOOK OF THE WEEK

This week’s book is an extremely readable and practical philosophy book. This book will help you with critical thinking, so that you don’t simply accept everything you see on Facebook and the news media as truth.

You may think that you don’t need to fine tune your own thinking. If that is your situation, all I can say is that I recall Uncle Tony once told me.

He said, “The only attribute the Lord distributed fairly was intelligence, not looks, strength, etc.”

I asked Uncle Tony, “Why do you say that?”

Uncle Tony replied, “Because intelligence in the only attribute that everyone thinks they received more than their fair share.”

MOVIE OF THE WEEK

The Worst Person in the World is a modern dramedy about the quest for love and meaning in contemporary Oslo. It chronicles four years in the life of Julie (Renate Reinsve), a young woman who navigates the troubled waters of her love life and struggles to find her career path, leading her to take a realistic look at who she really is.

Caution:

This film isn’t for everyone, especially if you don’t like english subtitles, graphic nudity, drug use, etc.

I almost stopped watching, but in the end I was glad I stayed with it. I think it is an accurate description of some people’s lives. Plus, I’ve never been to Oslo, so it was interesting to see that city.

When will the Russian people say enough?

I encourage everyone to donate to the Ukrainian cause, but please check out the organization before you make your donation. I feel it is criminal, but there are people taking advantage of your desire to help the Ukrainian people in their fight for freedom.

BOOK OF THE WEEK

I first read this book back in 1976, two years after it came out in 1974. He was concerned about the state of communications in 1974. Well, from my limited vantage point, things have become far worse.

If you are curious about how things once were, you may want to check this book out. It contains ideas such as this, again written in 1974:

 It may be that we have entered a time when some groups would do better to ignore each other than to communicate with each other.

Not communicating saves energy; it keeps people from worrying about things they cannot do anything about; and it eliminates an enormous amount of useless talk.

So, are you interested in this book?

BOOK OF THE WEEK

Civility and decent behaviour seems to be missing in so many today.

George Washing listed out 110 rules in this little 30 page book. It would be nice if this book was at least briefly discussed in homes and schools.

I do think if one wishes to advance themselves in life, they would do well to study this little book.

George Washington’s

Rules of Civility & Decent Behaviour

Copied out by hand as a young man aspiring to the status of Gentleman, George Washington’s 110 rules were based on a set of rules composed by French Jesuits in 1595.

The first English edition of these rules was available in Francis Hawkins’ Youths Behavior, or Decency in Conversation Amongst Men, which appeared in 1640, and it is from this work that Washington seems to have copied.

The rules as Washington wrote them out are a simplified version of the text. They had a strong influence on Washington, who aimed to always live by them.

The rules focus on self-respect and respect for others through details of etiquette. The rules offer pointers on such issues as how to dress, walk, eat in public, and address one’s superiors.

BOOK OF THE WEEK

I just finished reading this book and I think it is an excellent easy read, containing some keen insights about people. 

Death on the Nile

By Agatha Christie

MOVIE OF THE WEEK

In preparation to watch this movie I again watched the 1978 film and the 2004 television version. I would say the 1978 film had a much better story and the 2004 television version had a much better Poirot.

I also recently read the 1938 Agatha Christie book, Death on the Nile.

The beginning of the story about why Hercule Poirot has a mustache was not in any of the 50+ Poirot stories I have read and certainly not in Death of the Nile. The same is true for the ending where Hercule removes his mustache. 

As for the characters, they are a mess.

Perhaps someone who has never seen the two earlier movies of Death on the Nile, let alone read the actual story may think this is a fine film. Well, perhaps it beats most of todays thoughtless action films– even I am forced to agree when it is put like that.

9 x 4 = 36
9 x 5 = 45
9 x 6 = 54
9 x 7 = 63
9 x 8 = 72
9 x 9 = 81
9 x 10 = 91
 
Suddenly. chaos erupted in the classroom because Einstein made a mistake. Obviously, the correct answer to 9 × 10 isn’t 91. And all his students ridiculed him.
 
Einstein waited for everyone to be silent and said:
 
“Despite the fact that I analyzed nine problems correctly, no one congratulated me. But when I made one mistake, everyone started laughing. This means that even if a person is successful, society will notice his slightest mistake.
 
So, don’t let criticism destroy your dreams. The only person who never makes a mistake is someone who does nothing.”

Back in 2017, Bill Gates suggested to me and 1 million of his other closes friends, that I read this book.

Sapiens

By Yuval Noah Harari

Human history has been shaped by three major revolutions: the Cognitive Revolution (70,000 years ago), the Agricultural Revolution (10,000 years ago), and the Scientific Revolution (500 years ago).

These revolutions have empowered humans to do something no other form of life has done, which is to create and connect around ideas that do not physically exist (think religion, capitalism, and politics).

These shared “myths” have enabled humans to take over the globe … (Source: Amazon)

The Way You Wear Your Heart

Frank Sinatra and the Lost Art of Living’

By Bill Zehme

I think you can learn a lot about living from this book.

In The Way You Wear Your Hat, author Bill Zehme presents a masterful assembly of personal details of Frank Sinatra’s way of living. The book is  crafted from interviews with Sinatra himself as well as many other intimates, including Tony Bennett, Don Rickles, Angie Dickinson, Tony Curtis, and Robert Wagner, in addition to daughters Nancy and Tina Sinatra.

MOVIE OF THE WEEK

Death on the Nile

I’ve been watching a couple of older Death on the Nile films in preparation for seeing the current Kenneth Branagh version of Death on the Nile.

For those of you unfamiliar with the story, it is about Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot’s Egyptian vacation aboard a glamorous river steamer. His vacation turns into a search for a murderer when a picture-perfect couple’s honeymoon is tragically cut short. 

The 1978 movie is a better story of these two versions, but David Suchet (Television) is Hercule Poirot.

Hopefully, next week I will get around to seeing the Kenneth Branagh version of Death on the Nile.

Essential Surrealists

By Tim Martin 

If you aren’t familiar with surrealist art, you may want to check out a book like this one that will expose you to this unique art form.

Rather than describe the above book, I thought it would be more helpful to provide you with some information on the Surrealist Movement.

Surrealism is a cultural movement that started in 1917, best known for its juxtaposition of uncommon imagery. Artists painted unnerving, illogical scenes, sometimes with photographic precision, creating strange creatures from everyday objects, and developing painting techniques that allowed the unconscious to express itself.

Its aim was, according to Breton, to “resolve the previously contradictory conditions of dream and reality into an absolute reality, a super-reality”, or surreality. (Source: Wikipedia)

  EXTRAORDINARY PERSON  OF THE WEEK

Frank Sinatra

Francis Albert Sinatra (December 12, 1915 – May 14, 1998) was an American singer and actor who is generally viewed as one of the greatest musical artists of the 20th century.

He is one of the best-selling music artists of all time, having sold an estimated 150 million records worldwide. (Source: Wikipedia) 

I’m not sure how true the following is,

but if it isn’t true, it should be.

There are so many things about Frank Sinatra, that would make him worthy of being extraordinary person of the week, but that is not why I selected him this week. The reason selected him was because of the following story, which I think is likely true; but, I can’t say with certainty. I came across the story in Bill Zehme’s book The Way You Wear Your Hat. The story goes something like this:

Frank’s daughter Nancy was having a school party and Frank was  host. One little girl accidentally knocked over one of a pair of porcelain birds and it shattered.

Frank’s daughter Nancy, gasped, “That was my mother’s favorite.”

The little girl who broke one of the porcelain birds was mortified.

Frank walked over to the table and knocked the remaining bird on to the floor, shattering that bird. He then walked over to the girl who broke the first bird and said, “That’s okay, kid. Accidents happen.”

Wouldn’t you like to be like Frank, well you can. Any of us can.

Hercule Poirot

The Complete Short Stories

By Agatha Christie

I started reading these stories back in January 2019 and only recently finished this 850+ page book. Obviously, I took some reading breaks. If you like short detective stories, check this book out.

At last, a single volume that gathers together all of the short stories featuring Agatha Christie’s most famous creation, Hercule Poirot. The dapper, mustache-twirling little Belgian with the egg-shaped head and curious mannerisms has solved some of the most puzzling crimes of the century—and, in his own humble opinion, is “probably the greatest detective in the world.”

In this complete collection of more than 50 stories, ranging from short tales to novellas, Poirot faces violent murders, poisonings, kidnappings, and thefts—all solved with his characteristic panache. Only Agatha Christie could have devised cases worthy of Hercule Poirot’s skill and “little gray cells.” (Source: Amazon)

MOVIE OF THE WEEK

MATA HARI

Painting of Mata Hari by Isaac Israëls, 1916

Margaretha Geertruida MacLeod (née Zelle; 7 August 1876 – 15 October 1917), better known by the stage name Mata Hari, was a Dutch exotic dancer and courtesan who was convicted of being a spy for Germany during World War I

On 13 February 1917, Mata Hari was arrested in her room at the Hotel Elysée Palace on the Champs Elysées in Paris. She was put on trial on 24 July, accused of spying for Germany, and consequently causing the deaths of at least 50,000 soldiers. Although the French and British intelligence suspected her of spying for Germany, neither could produce definite evidence against her.

Zelle was executed by a firing squad of 12 French soldiers just before dawn on 15 October 1917. She was 41. According to an eyewitness account by British reporter Henry Wales, she was not bound and refused a blindfold. She defiantly blew a kiss to the firing squad. (Source: Wikipedia) 

I’m not sure how true the following is,

but if it isn’t true, it should be.

At her execution [ ], Mata Hari, dressed to the nines, blew a kiss at her firing squad and smiled, causing one soldier to faint and another to marvel, “Sacre bleu, this lady knows how to die.” (Source: Simply Irresistible by Ellen T. White)

Here are some Valentine’s Day tips for the ladies.

Simply Irresistible

By Ellen T. White

Simply Irresistible is a humorous manual of case studies that show how the greatest sirens of history did what they did and got what they wanted, nearly all the time.

Our role models include Eva Peron, Greta Garbo, Coco Chanel, Nigella Lawson, Angelina Jolie, Edith Piaf, Lucretia Borgia, Anne Boleyn, Mata Hari, and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.

Simply Irresistible gives practical, sexy, and sometimes downright outrageous advice on modern seduction. It exalts the siren archetypes of the Companion, Competitor, Goddess, Mother, and Sex Kitten.

The cheeky histories of the iconic real-life women are paired with a fun array of quizzes, quotes, photos, tongue-in-cheek captions, and personal stories of triumph and tragedy. Mata Hari and Anne Boleyn were, after all, both executed.  (Source: Amazon)
