"The album is what it is. 'We're going to do eight songs. So let's do those eight songs and concentrate on them and devote all of our time to them. The uniquely formal language of some of Neil Peart's lyrics ("one must put up barriers to keep oneself intact") stemmed from his literary influences. "It was because my reading was so broad and so precocious at the time," he says. And a big influence on me was John Steinbeck's The Acts of King Arthur and His Noble Knights, which he never finished in his lifetime. But he had obviously deliberately chosen it. And some of those formal phrasings were because I was very much driven by rhythm of words – and still am. A line will strike me just because of its drumming rhythm. Peart says all three members of Rush had moments of partying too hard in the Seventies. "Oh yeah, we all did," says Peart. "And I wrote about that one time and used Winston Churchill's quote. I said, yeah, we went through everything. But Churchill said, 'When you're going through hell, keep going. If anybody got out of control, they would be sniped at. But we all went through all that together and just kept going and moved beyond it. Drinking and drugs just made me throw up. So that's a pretty good way to keep yourself in line.
By now, we’re all aware of how prevalent it is for videos from all across the globe have the potential to go viral, and what’s true of four minute clips is increasingly true of longer media, including television. Such is the case with Poldark , a British series that aired in the last year which is set to make its US debut on PBS this Sunday at 9pm, in hopes perhaps that Poldark will revive the excitement that Downton Abbey once brought to that timeslot. As with Dr. Who (reborn in 2005 after its original series ended in 1989), Poldark is in fact a reboot of an older British series. When Poldark ’s original episodes aired in the mid-70’s, it was an international hit, broadcast in over 40 countries, including the United States. In Cornwall, the county that provides Poldark ’s cliffside setting, church services had to be rescheduled because no one would leave the house while the show was airing. To this day, the video sales on the original series of Poldark have only been topped by the Colin Firth Pride And Prejudice. Poldark follows the dashing Ross Poldark, a redcoat fresh off the defeat of the 18 -century American Revolutionary War who returns home to his aristocratic family in Cornwall only to find his father dead, his fiancé engaged to his nebbish cousin,...
And yet, this week’s episode featured one of the most heartbreaking moments in the five seasons of “Game of Thrones. And yet, unlike Sansa’s wedding night, the scene in question from “The Dance of Dragons,” felt poignant as well as horrific. There were developments in Dorne and Braavos, too, and at the Wall, but the heaviest stuff happened with Stannis’s camp and in Meereen. Right away, we see what Ramsay Bolton and his 20 good men are up to as flames engulf Stannis’s camp, destroying food, tents, weapons and horses. At first, it all looks like a vision of Melisandre’s — the flaming horse was an especially surreal — but it turns out to be all too real for Stannis. Ser Davos urges him to turn back to Castle Black, but Stannis, ever stubborn, persists. Knowing that Davos isn’t going to bend, he orders him to Castle Black to demand troops and supplies. Davos, likewise, knows that there’s something else at stake: Stannis’s daughter Shireen, who has king’s blood — which is what Melisandre’s Red God demands. He tries to coax Stannis to allow Shireen to.
