  • So I’m sitting here after a nap watching a baseball game. A commercial comes on advertising Hot Pockets. There’s a pretty woman who looks like a model. They do this thing about how it’s so hot. That was weird. Then a male voice comes on the TV talking about how there’s real cheese in hot pockets. I’m just sitting feeling totally weirded out thinking…so there are companies who are not using real cheese? And of course, the advertisement says nothing about the condition of the cows from which the cheese was extracted, or what conditions they lived in. I feel discouraged to purchase anything from Hot Pockets.

  • So, we are living in a new renaissance of TV.  I mean Game of Thrones, Orange is the New Black, House of Cards, Breaking Bad, etc.   Aside from the fact that all of these shows tend to have Libertarian undertones, it seems that the lack of broadcast television gatekeepers has opened up this new level media quality from writing to acting.  Could it just be that markets are opening up and competition is forcing a better quality show, or is it something more?  What are your thoughts on this shift from cable and broadcast TV that affects both consumption and production?  Am I right in my observation?

  • Watched Requiem For The American Dream last night. It was pretty good, but got some things definitely wrong. It was able to identify some of the problems with today’s economic and political system, but didn’t quite get many of their causes completely correct. It noted that the economy we have now isn’t truly capitalism (which it’s not), and that in democratic societies, large business will favor regulations that grow government and reduce competition (which is true). The problem is it claims that there are people intentionally doing this for the malicious purpose of exploiting the working class (which I don’t think is really the reason. It just makes good business sense if you want to keep growing your company and paying your workers). It also seemed to imply that Americans don’t have the right of free association, but last I checked that was guaranteed under the First Amendment, as upheld in several supreme court cases. Finally, it heavily implies that the solution to this problem is implement a democratic political system, with a collectivist economy, but doesn’t realize this is calling the feared outcome the solution. He references Socrates thoughts on society, which notes that in a democracy, eventually the poor will vote to redistribute wealth from the rich, and then suggests that the best solution to this problem is … redistribute wealth from the rich to the poor up front? I thought that’s what you were worried about? Anybody else watched this and have some thoughts?

  • A new TV show coming out next month called “Colony” shows some promise.  It takes place in Los Angeles in some unknown future.  A large wall envelopes the city, and inside it is a police state.  The story surrounds a man and his family trying to make ends meet.  Society has been split in two:  those who collaborate and those who resist.  Collaborate with who?  They have yet to be revealed, but the evidence provided is some alien race. (I assume, hence the name “Colony”). When one character was asked about the need of the police state, he says, “You have to have some controls, otherwise there would be anarchy.” It shows promise.

  • I wanted to bring to this community’s attention the recent documentary “Can We Take a Joke?”, directed by Ted Balaker, one of the founders of Reason TV.  Through the lens of stand-up comedy, it explores how outrage culture and political correctness are eroding the space for free and outrageous expression. I was honored to compose the score for this documentary along with my writing partner Ryan Rapsys.  (please check out our new website www.MusicForLiberty.com) The film premiered at Doc NYC in November and I’m sure it will be available for viewing in the near future. I’ll make sure to post when it becomes available for public consumption.
