    I love all the public buildings from the 1880s to the 1930s. The only thing Dump did which I applauded was his "make Bauhaus unhappen" edict that all public buildings would look like the Parthenon again.

    Cuz here's the thing. We monkey people are stupid and we've only hit on like 4 architectural styles in world history that didn't suck. Gothic cathedrals. Golden Age of Islam mosques, Periclean Greek temples, and some Chinese stuff I'm too ignint to know about.

    That's it. All our other buildings have been ugly prisons. The Fountainhead is just as puerile about architecture as economics and politics: designing buildings for efficiency like circuit boards is fucking horrible.

      This was common 100 years ago. My Mom grew up in the 30s in a small city in PA where there were intersections with four Catholic churches: Czech, Russian, German, and Polish. She said on Sundays the little boys would run out of church, run home to change from their nice clothes, and then all have rock fights divided by enthnicity until the Polish church let out a half hour later. Then they'd all gang up and throw rocks at the Polish kids.

      Just like Norman Rockwell wanted.

              That's actually pretty close to Hamlet.

              • I watched the Lego Movie (the first one) over again. Watching it now with what I know now, it's probably the strongest indictment against American culture and capitalism I've seen in awhile.

                  Yup. It's amazingly seditious. I love that movie.

                      Staying off topic of movies a bit... if you have never read the McMansion Hell blog, go check it out. Not only does the author rip mcmansions hilariously, but she does an excellent job of explaining why the architecture/design on them is bad and what would constitute good home architecture. She also has some good articles about other types of architecture as well.

                              • Plan tonight, pending homework and other things, is to watch "The Emancipation of Harley Quinn and the Fantabulous Birds of Prey." Can that be watched on its own or do I have to watch something like Suicide Squad before it?
