Ain't No Hollaback Girl

quote [ "An actor who recorded 10 hours of catcalls and remarks from passersby in New York City has received rape threats in response to a video detailing the harassment..." ]

Who the hell catcalls a woman? Never done it, never felt the need. Men need better role models.

Silver Linings Playbook

quote [ Jazz musician Horace Silver, a composer known for pioneering hard bop, has died [...] He was 85. ]

Horace Silver was one of the stalwarts of hard bop, playing with basically everyone, but especially Hank Mobley, Art Blakey, and fronting The Jazz Messengers himself. His playing was more melodic and whimsical than coldly theoretical.

Benn There, Done That

quote [ Tony Benn ? the lodestar for the Labour left for decades, orator, campaigner, diarist and grandfather ? has died aged 88 after a long illness ]

'In the course of my life I have developed five little democratic questions. If one meets a powerful person--Adolf Hitler, Joe Stalin or Bill Gates--ask them five questions: ?What power have you got? Where did you get it from? In whose interests do you exercise it? To whom are you accountable? And how can we get rid of you?? If you cannot get rid of the people who govern you, you do not live in a democratic system.'
