Our next guest has the sole distinction of making Mr Beamish blush. However, when one wears a gasmask nobody notices blushing. Sonia did answer the question and apparently that is her picture in the avatar. I want to stress that Beakerambo is not
a self portrait. There is a gender confused person in Tredington who has asked that question.
I am surprised how many of my readers have made the trek to Sonia's blog. Her blog is about far more than nudity and has several top notch political posts and posts about art. Regular readers of this blog know I have an interest in the arts.
1 What is the difference between art and pornography? There is nudity in a Renoir or
Greek sculptures, but few would consider them pornographic.
2 Are there people who should keep their clothes on for aesthetic purposes. I do not have a desire to see Janet Reno naked,
3 Do you think the nudity increases the ammount of trolls on your site. Recently, you
had what appears to be a fake Syrian. We usually get the most unhinged leftists and
anti-semites on this site.
4 You seem to have a preference for the ancients. Is this a misconception on my part?
5 Name your top five architectural favorites.
6 Is there a bias in the arts community against family fare. I see movies like Shrek,
Monsters Inc and the Incredibles as examples of extreemly well made movies.
7 There are some movies with nudity that are snoozes. I slept through Bolero and Showgirls due to bad writing. Is writing the key to a good movie. You seemed to like Eyes Wide Shut, I found the movie a bore.
8 We have a house film snob ( Poultry) who would like to hear your thoughts on Almodvar. Are there any of his films you would recomend?
9 What are your views of film genres that we never see discused on your blog such as Musicals, Horror, Martial Arts Films and Comedy?
10 Is the age of Epic films like the English Patient, Dr Zhivago, Ben Hur a thing of the past? I would note that the Lord of the Rings trilogy qualifies as an epic.
11 What are your thoughts on the Superhero movies. The Spiderman Franchise seems to do quite well due to well constructed villans and plot lines.
12 Name the top five over rated and under rated films of all time?
13 Do you also watch older films? I was surprised to see how many of my readers remembered Superfly, Harry and Tonto, Black Sunday and some of the older films that
are referenced in passing.
14 Has anti-Americanism become reflexive amongst the far left?
15 Is the far left a religion? As a pseudo-religion are its true believers oblivious
to logic, facts, history and sanity?
16 Is there a hard core anti-semitic element on the left?
17 I see a mental health defect with many on the far left. Is there a mental health
aspect to people who are prone to idiotic conspiracies, such as the mostly anti-semitic 9-11 fare.
18 Has the far left Disneyfied Islamic history and culture. Theological law placed on nonbelivers with Jim Crow elements, amputations and capital punishment for gays and rape victims does not seem to be humane.
19 Are Communists oblivious to the human toll and history of subversion and treason
in their own history? I often get perplexed far left types who can not understand the
hatred of many for their handiwork.
20 Is the notion that we can create Utopia in this world flawed and sometimes dangerous?
21 What is your response to the Communists who claim that the Khmer Rouge fiasco in Cambodia had nothing to do with Marx?
22 I am amazed at how many arts types sympathise with a movement that surpresses Artistic freedom? How do arts and letters types rationalize this contradiction.
23 Groups supported by the far left FARC, Hezbollah, Taliban are all deeply involved in drug dealing? Do far left types address this at all? Is Drug dealing for Social Justice just another contradiction like liberation via starvation.
24 Do the far left over romanticize terrorists as oppressed? Even today we have unrepentant spoiled terrorists teaching in American Universities named Ayers and Dorn.
25 Why do so many true believers flock to your site? Some of your commentors praise of Cuba. This borders on incoherent lunacy, all of you can read what you are told to read. People just happen to risk death fleeing the workers paradise.
I would like to thank you in advance for your thoughtful responses.
