First off, I was really giving it a go on trying to do a post on the top Alt-Right films in my view. But besides being a terrible writer, I’m an even worse movie reviewer. But I did come up with a top 5 that if you feel like talking about, be my guest

Number 5: Robin Hood. Staring Russel Crow, Cate Blanchett and directed by Ridley Scott. Why? I loved the localism, the belief in taking care of their own people, and of course Robin’s speech.

Number 4: Watchmen. What hasn’t been said about this classic graphic novel, turned amazing film.

Number 3: Death Wish. Staring Charles Bronson. And if you have to ask “Why?” , please go re-watch this classic.

Number 2: They Live. Staring Rowdy Roddy Piper, and directed by John Carpenter,  The ultimate “Red Pill” film.

And my the number 1 film(s)The Dark Knight Trilogy directed by Christopher Nolan. From wanting to “save the city of Gotham” to wanting to “What is falling, push” – This collection of films has it all for us on the dissident Right .

Have at it folks. Yes? No? You’re crazy? Tell me.

And now on with the week..

The classic German metal band Accept, put out there new album “Blind Rage” this past Tuesday and it has been on constant repeat all week. These guys can do no wrong. The riffs, the singing and the relentless drum pounding, makes this album another classic in their catalog. If you buy the CD, it comes with a DVD of a concert they did in Chili.

In other music news, the emo-black metalish band Deafheaven released a new single to Pitchfork media called “From the kettle onto the coil“. This band continues to amaze me. If you haven’t heard them, think My Bloody Valentine meets Mayhem. Best way I can describe them.

In world affairs..Some whackjob Muslim group, in that beacon of Jeffersonian Dumbocracy Iraq, decided to behead a journalist. The predictable reaction by the usual suspects was what you would expect. “Bomb, bomb, bomb”. ( Even though the US government has bombing this country off and on for 25 years and they still continue to resist). Besides the Holy Father calling the Foley family which was rather touching. As far as I know, no elected by “we the people” politician has done so, I could be wrong, But why hasn’t anyone asked “what in God’s name, was this guy doing hanging out with this crowd”?

US national news..Riots in some slum in Missouri over some thug being shot by some cop. In other news, Chicago continues it’s world record pace for murders. Conservative, INC. decides once again to talk about “race realism” by using liberal logic and the the Left continues to cry rayyyyyist. PC-Judo as Mr. Spencer calls it.

On the nightstand this week..Batman Year 100 by Paul Pope and a recommendation by my good friend Bruce, “Leisure the Basis of Culture” by Josef Pieper.  From the back cover it reads “The modern world, on the other hand, has generally abolished leisure and has replaced it with the world of “total work”. This has led to much of modern restlessness and despair“. Yeah, I’m going to like this one. Thanks Bruce!

And finally in sports news. The Washington Nationals are still the best team in the NL and Arsenal F.C. won their opening match beginning the Barclay’s Premier League season.

Until then…Don’t just say you’re a Radical Traditionalist, Live it.

Since there’s really nothing going on in the news world that I’m interested in. I figured I’d write about what I’m reading during this wonderful time of year. As well, show a little love to some of the albums I’m listening to, and the ones I’m waiting for to come out.

First up on the reading list, is Pat Buchanan’s new book: Churchill, Hitler, and “The Unnecessary War”: How Britain Lost Its Empire and the West Lost the World This book has been creating quite the controversy. For reasons that I can’t figure out. The book takes a critical look at the reasons behind WWI, and WWII. And for the most part, they shouldn’t have even been fought.  I have the feeling that most people who are complaining about this book, haven’t even read one page.

The next two books that I am reading, are books I’ve read before. There fun, insightful, as well, they both make you think. The first of which is Hunter S. Thompson’s: Fear and Loathing: On the Campaign Trail ’72. To me, this is the definitive book on campaigns. And this year being one bizarro world election, this book is just as relevant as it was back when it came out. The other book is by the great Libertarian Science Fiction author Robert A. Heinlein, The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress. If you haven’t read this before, please, Read It!!

Now, on to music. I guess I should start as by say, I am a HUGE Metal fan. This is the primary genrethat I have grown up with, and still can’t shake away. Spine tingling riffs, epic singers, and bone crushing drummers. This is what I love. And this summers releases aren’t going to be disappointing.

The Mighty Judas Priest just released there first conceptual album, Nostradamus. As you can guess it’s about Nostradamus. We also have coming out this summer, the album that most metal fans have been waiting for. A new Slipknot album. All Hope Is Gone, is the title. And from what I’ve been hearing through the grapevine, it is, in a word. Brutal!!  Here’s the title track to the album.

Quote and video Saturday.

This weekend we honor our fallen and give thanks to the people who fought for our “freedoms”. So when looking for a quote, I found myself looking at the Civil War. Being that Memorial Day was made to honor the Union, in slaughtering their own countrymen. 

The majority of us Americans will be honoring WW2, Korean War, Vietnam, and Gulf War Veterans, but we must not forget to also honor the Southern Peoples, who fought for their independence, liberty, and freedom from the tyrannical North.

Gen. Robert E. Lee: True patriotism sometimes requires of men to act exactly contrary, at one period, to that which it does at another, and the motive which impels them — the desire to do right — is precisely the same. 

And now for our video. The King, Elvis Presley doing the “American Trilogy” from Aloha from Hawaii.

I just started reading a book called Ain’t My America: The Long, Noble History of Antiwar Conservatism and Middle-American Anti-Imperialism”  by Bill Kauffman. Which so far is fantastic book. From the title, I’m sure you can figure out what it’s about. And Daniel McCarthy from the best political magazine “The American Conservative”, has a great review of it.

Being what I would like think, a student of history, and having a fondness for the rebel rousers during the colonial period. I found this quote in the book, from one of the leaders of the Anti-Federalists, George Mason, to be prolific.

“I abominate and detest the idea of government, where there is a standing army,” George Mason told Virginia’s ratifying convention.

While thinking about that quote, have a listen to one of my favorites, Dream Theater, doing a song called “In the Name of God”.

 

Part 2 of it can be found here. Yes, like most of Dream Theater’s songs, it’s a long one.

It’s always best to do with a good glass of wine. And when doing this, it’s a great idea to have music playing in the background. So with this, it’s wonder why this study hasn’t been done before.

Why wine tastes better with music

Scientists said their research had established for the first time that music influenced taste, and claimed the results could have important implications for restaurateurs.

According to his list of the ideal tracks to accompany wine, a Chardonnay slips down nicely accompanied by Atomic from Blondie, and Merlot is good with Otis Redding singing Sitting on the Dock of the Bay. Jimie Hendrix’s version of All Along the Watchtower is recommended with a 2006 Chilean Cabernet Sauvingnon.

I’m not much of a fan of Blondie, or Hendrix (No ribbing for this), but a glass of Merlot with Ottis sounds pretty good to me.

Now that this study has been put together, here’s a few of my own recommendations for “When Music and Wine Unite”.

Cabinet Sauvignon: Dream Theater, Richard Wagner, Iron Maiden, Yes, and The Who

Merlot: Van Halen, Genesis, The Ramones, Bruce Springsteen, and Grieg.

Chardonnay: Jimmy Buffet, Chris Isaak, The Beach Boys, Emmylou Harris, and Chopin

Chanti: Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Mario Lanza, Luciano Pavarotti, and the soundtrack to “The Godfather”.

That’s my take. If any of you have any others you want to add, or ask any questions about this, don’t hesitate to post in the comment section.
