Neil Young dies, aged 82

Sad news today on NBC News. 'Astronaut' Neil Young has died.

Now I never knew Neil Young was an astronaut, but his songs have been a beacon for many generations. Who doesn't know "Rocking in the Free World", "Tonight's the Night" or the wonderful "Heart of Gold".

My Top 10 would be:
  1. Ohio
  2. Heart of Gold
  3. After the Gold Rush
  4. Tell Me Why
  5. Comes a Time
  6. Cinnamon Girl
  7. Old Man
  8. Down By The River
  9. Helplessly Hoping
  10. Tonight's the Night
Keep on Rockin', Neil, wherever NBC News tells us you are...

How to spell Fish as Ghoti?

Some languages like Turkish or Hungarian are "phonetic". This simply means that you can look at a word and know how to say it. English is not phonetic.

You cannot always look at an English word and know how to say it. You cannot always hear an English word and know how to spell it.

George Bernard Shaw was a famous Irish writer. He wanted to reform English spelling so that it was more logical. He asked the following question as an example:
How do we pronounce the word "ghoti"?
His answer was "fish".
How can "ghoti" and "fish" sound the same? He explained it like this:
  • the gh = f as in rouGH
  • the o = i as in wOmen
  • the ti = sh as in naTIon

Randy Newman in Concert

On Sunday February 26th Randy Newman will play a solo concert in the cultural centre of Hasselt. I am one of the lucky people to have two tickets, but unfortunately my date can't make it. So if anybody is interested in joining me, send me a private message. Randy Newman is know to the public as either the greatest satirical songwriter of his era (Short People, I love L.A., Political Science, God's Song,...) or as the composer of film music who has been nominated 20 (!) times at the Academy Awards (Toy Story, Ragtime, Monsters Inc., Cars,...)

The Reader (2008): a review

I just finished watching The Reader, a movie from 2008 starring a brilliant Kate Winslet (has she ever been less than brilliant I wonder), Ralph Fiennes and David Kross. Looking for reviews on the internet, I was amazed reading that so many people consider Hanna as a monster. I thought the whole point of the movie was to show that nobody is a monster. There are no good or evil people, just mixtures of both. Our world is not black or white, and it is definitely not grey. No, we live in a multicolored universe.
Haven't we all had secrets in our lives? Both protagonists have secrets and because they want to hide them, they do wrong things. The question we should ask is not why they did these things, but whether they can live with the shame, the guilt and the consequences.  

I think it was well put in the movie that the law (our justice) is a very narrow and shallow thing. We do not judge people on the basis of morality, but on the basis of legality. And to make it more difficult: the legalitily of a certain period. What was considered right 50 years ago is considered wrong or racist or despicable in the 21st century.

The movie is dark, disturbing and doesn't provide answers. But it will make you think about your own decisions. I never read the book by Bernard Schlink but I'm sure I will soon.
