@BryanVanNorden recently linked this piece on Adorno and music; it was published a little while back in Feb 2018. I've not read Adorno's writing on music; but I want to sketch out some thoughts on what's said about his ideas on #genre in this piece. 1/

First, I liked learning about the historical context and biographical detail in this piece. That Adorno's mother was a singer; he himself played the piano and studied with Alban Berg. (I've not read much Adorno biography, clearly.) 2/
Since I was talking about #30JahreMauerfall last week, also of interest is that in exile in Los Angeles, Adorno worked with Hanns Eisler, a composer and close collaborator of Bertolt Brecht. When Eisler had to leave the US, he settled in the #DDR; he wrote the national anthem. 3/

L'AMORE PER DANIELE DE ROSSI

- UN THREAD SENTIMENTALE -

(non essendo né romano, né romanista)

#DDR16 #DDR #DanieleDeRossi #DeRossi
Innamorarsi del De Rossi ventenne durante la stagione 2003/2004, quella in cui di fatto si è imposto nella Roma come titolare (o quasi), è stato disgustosamente facile. Qualunque caratteristica dovesse avere 'il centrocampista' lui ce l'aveva.
Tocco? C'è. Visione? Pure. Grinta? Non scherziamo. Carisma? A pacchi. Personalità? Anche troppa.

Un giocatore completissimo in grado di ritagliarsi minuti in una squadra che proprio scarsa non era, anzi. Ai tempi, DDR era una mezzala clamorosa e potenzialmente onnipotente.

1/8 My favorite #quote by #JosephStalin, which explains the scientific, #DialecticalMaterialist explanation of true freedom in material reality, not just as an abstract ideal. #StalinIsBack #StalinLives #JVStalin #Stalin #StalinQuote #StalinQuotes #Truth #MELS #MarxismLeninism
2/8 Having an #objective, #rational, #ScientificSocialist, #Dialectical, & #Materialist viewpoint allows us to accurately see & evaluate & analyze #Truth & #Reality as they truly materially exist in this universe.
3/8 An idealistic, dogmatic viewpoint, which capitalists have, however, makes one irrational enough to 'see' freedom where freedom stays trapped on a piece of paper while people are oppressed in their actual lived lives.

WeiĂź noch jemand, als Deutschland "der kranke Mann Europas" war wegen 5 Millionen Arbeitsloser? Das dringend einen "Niedriglohnsektor" brauchte, Arbeiterrechte weg und Zeit-/Leiharbeit her?

Heute haben wir 0,84 Mio. ALG1 und 4,27 Mio. ALG2 und 1,96 Mio. Sozialgeld-Empfänger.
Dazu sind private Vermögen zum Staat und nach oben umverteilt, Immobilienvermögen immer weniger privat, 47 Deutsche haben so viel wie 40.000.000 andere Deutsche. Die Hälfte aller in D hat Schulden. Vor Hilfe muss fast alles weg. ALG2 ist Dauerbezug, genau wie früher.
Wer Steuern von Reichen und Superreichen fordert, wird als "Sozialist" oder "Linker" oder "Kommunist" oder als Ungebildet beschimpft. Ein #Gesundheitsminister findet 4,80 Euro Nahrung und Getränke im Monat bei 36.000.000.000 Euro Überschuss allein 2017 "ausreichend".
