One thought on “The Latest Movie/Music Phenom

  1. Mark says:

    I am sort of conflicted when I read about movies like this. I am not much a fan of pop culture. Serious art, literature, and music no longer have the position of importance in the lives of educated Americans they once had, and I believe that our culture is worse off for that. Celebrities have replaced artists in the minds and hearts of the American people who should know better.
    I recently discovered this address given at Stanford University this year by Dana Gioia, chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts.

    I think WDAV listeners would do well to read it and ponder its implications.
