Tom Wolfe - Radical chic. Il fascino irresistibile dei rivoluzionari da salotto

Radical chic è lo spassoso e tagliente articolo in cui Tom Wolfe descrive il curioso fenomeno sociale, sorto alla fine degli anni Sessanta negli Stati Uniti, del corteggiamento da parte dell’élite newyorkese di ogni possibile rivoluzionario radicale, dagli antimilitaristi agli hippy psichedelici. L’occasione che ispirò a Wolfe la celebre definizione «radical chic» fu il ricevimento organizzato a Manhattan il 14 gennaio 1970 da Felicia Bernstein, moglie del compositore e direttore d’orchestra Leonard, per sostenere la causa del gruppo rivoluzionario marxista-leninista delle Pantere Nere. La serata si svolse nell’attico di tredici stanze che i Bernstein possedevano a Park Avenue, e Wolfe ne scrisse un ampio e caustico resoconto intitolato These Radical Chic Evenings, pubblicato nel mese di giugno sul «New York Magazine».

Negli anni Sessanta e Settanta diventò estremamente di moda, per gli intellettuali newyorchesi ricchi e affermati, ospitare nei propri salotti ogni possibile rivoluzionario radicale, dalle Pantere Nere agli antimilitaristi agli hippy psichedelici. In questo libro Tom Wolfe mette in ridicolo quegli ambienti (di cui esiste anche una versione italiana), descrivendo una serie di serate mondane all'insegna di "Invita-una-Pantera-Nera-al-Cocktail". Quando il libro apparve per la prima volta nel giugno del 1970 sul "New York Magazine", lo scandalo fu grande: fu una dura e sana presa in giro della Buona Coscienza Progressista, tuttora attuale.

Organs Without Bodies: On Deleuze and Consequences

Organs Without Bodies: On Deleuze and Consequences by Slavoj Zizek
English | May 4th, 2012 | ASIN: B0081YW5KK, ISBN: 0415969204 | 234 pages | EPUB | 0.34 MB

n this deliciously polemical work, a giant of cultural theory immerses himself in the ideas of a giant of French thought. In his inimical style, Zizek links Deleuze's work with both Oedipus and Hegel, figures from whom the French philosopher distanced himself.

In 1981, a lot of rock & rollers were claiming that the disco era was officially over. Disco, of course, never really died – a lot of the dance-pop, house music, Hi-NRG, and Latin freestyle that was recorded in the '80s and '90s was essentially disco – but as far as many of the radio stations and record company A&R men of 1981 were concerned, disco was dead. And that was bad news for Chic, a group closely identified with the disco era. Even though a lot of Chic's work had as much to do with funk and soul as it did with the Euro-disco sound, Chic was unable to live down its reputation as a disco group. But Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards gave it a try with 1981's Take It Off, an admirable, if uneven, project that finds the group downplaying the Euro-disco elements.

CHIC's third album has been praised by many as their very finest, yet - perhaps because of the impossible task of surpassing two monster albums (C'est CHIC + We Are Family) - I feel this comes off a wee bit disappointing. Of course, there was the ambiguous "Good Times", possibly CHIC's very greatest track with Nard's classic bass line, this first single has made history of its own, and there's no denying the splendid quality of this record. "A Warm Summer Night" is a sensuous instrumental that belongs among my favourites with its corny "Te quiero papi" whisper. Needless to say, the music is faultlessly played, repeating the theme over and over again.
