I want to make an infomercial where it's not clear
what the guy’s selling. Like he’s demonstrating
how powerful this vacuum is by sucking up a
bowling ball but then he starts showing you how
strong the bowling ball is by dropping it on some
knives, but then he’s showing how the knives
haven’t been damaged at all by using them to
cut through some shoes and it goes on and on
for two hours then just loops back to the start
while a number flashes on screen the whole time
and if you call it it just echoes whatever you say
back to you.

These differing views on individual liberty are especially striking.

Nowadays, it’s almost impossible for anyone living in a liberal democ-
racy to say they are against freedom ~ at least in the abstract (in practice,

of course, our ideas are usually much more nuanced). This is one of the
lasting legacies of the Enlightenment and of the American and French

Revolutions. Personal freedom, we tend to believe, is inherently good

(even if some of us also feel that a society based on total individual
liberty - one which took it so far as to eliminate police, prisons or any

sort of apparatus of coercion — would instantly collapse into violent
chaos). Seventeenth-century Jesuits most certainly did not share this
assumption. They tended to view individual liberty as animalistic. In
1642, the Jesuit missionary Le Jeune wrote of the Montagnais-Naskapi:

They imagine that they ought by right of birth, to enjoy the liberty of

wild ass colts, rendering no homage to any one whomsoever, except
when they like. They have reproached me a hundred times because we
fear our Captains, while they laugh at and make sport of theirs. All the
authority of their chief is in his tongue’s end; for he is powerful in so —
far as he is eloquent; and, even if he kills himself talking and ha-

ranguing, he will not be obeyed unless he pleases the Savages.”

WILLIAM F. BUCKLEY Jr.

Do We Really Need
Home Computers?

Stanley Marcus, the famous merchandiser responsible for
the success of Dallas’ Neiman-Marcus, said recently that the
art of selling is dead in America. Two years ago he took a
pledge not to buy anything ever again on his
own initiative. He would henceforth buy only
things that were sold to him.

In any case, Mr. Marcus said that it
worked out that he hadn’t bought a thing in
two years, and has therefore saved himself
$43,000 per year, the annual average cost of
Mr. Marcus’ predatory appetite.

] In conversation with an executive of IBM

2

the other day I said that I hoped before I died
that someone — anyone — would devote a
page of advertising now given over to home
Buckley computers to explaining exactly how a com-
puter can be useful — in the home. One’s own

imagination tends to be limited in these matters. I know of one
use to which I would myself wish to put a home computer, but
ele to know of others, since it is difficult to believe that $1.5

illion is being spent idly by American homeowners.

I'd like one that would hold the contents of a large diction-
ary, so that I could type out the word “‘otiose’’ and be remind-
ed of what it meant. I said be reminded of what it meant be-
cause a communicable aphasia hit me when I was 16. At that
time a teacher told his class that most people have two or
three words whose meaning they are forever forgetting, and
he gave as his example the word otiose. I swooped upon a dic-
tionary a half-hour later and learned what it meant.

Since then I have probably looked the word up 30 times. At
this moment, I can’t remember what I means. I don’t suppose,
though, the crowds will storm the store that advertises:
“Learn instantly what otiose means!”’

William Draper, the president of the Import-Export Bank
and an investor in small computers, told me once: “Software
is everything. There are no remaining problems of hardware.”
It took awhile before I understood that, which however I am
now prepared to explain. What he meant was that the machine
exists into which you can program the whole dictionary, or for
that matter the whole encyclopedia. But somebody has got to
pay for the time of the person who types out the 400,000-odd
entries in Webster’s Third into the discs that you then insert
into the machine.

Moreover, the capacity of the machine to memorize in-
creases with some reference to its cost. A machine that
operates a disc that will memorize, let us say, 64 bytes will
give you 64,000 characters. Since the average word has five
characters, then the disc is good for about 10,000 words, or
about 12 times the length of this article.

You can get a second dise — and a third — and a 300th.
And the hardware exists that will search through your discs
until it lands on “‘otiose."” But by that time you have run out of
money and run out of time; so you resign yourself to the dic-
tionary. .
Stanley Marcus is on to something. Some gadgets we know
instinctively how to put to use: radios, say, or Waring blend-
ers. But a $1,000 computer? The Pulitzer Prize belongs to the
man who reveals what they’re good for. I mean, what they're
good for that the average newspaper reader wants to know.

PRIVE / PANZANE I LA FINE DELL'ALBUM? CERTO

La fine dellalbum?

Mi sono innamorato di Orange,
il nuovo singolo dei Pinegrove,
ma proprio di brutto - non so se
avete presente, ascolti una can-
zoncina, carina, la riascolti, molto
carina, e 24 ore dopo V’hai sentita
un centinaio di volte. Stavo anche
pensando di proporre la recen-
sione del singolo alla direzione
di “Rumore” poi ho pensato che
magari anche no, nel senso, Or-
ange non € veramente un “singo-
lo”. E una canzone pubblicata in
streaming, c’é uno scopo benefico
dietro, vabbe’, non é importante,
prima o poi suppongo finira in un
disco lungo. Singoli, dischi lung-
hi, eccetera. Vestigia di un tempo
passato che continuano a tornare.
Vi é mai capitato di pensare a
quanto siamo ancora aggrappati a
questi concetti?
Esempio scemo: in questa rivista
¢’é una sottosezione delle recen-
sioni, “Singolare”, dedicata a sin-
goli ed EP. Tutti sappiamo cosa

PANZANE

sono: un singolo é pio meno

un disco costruito su una singola
canzone, a cui in genere é affian-
cata un’altra canzone (“b-side”)
di secondaria importanza - una
canzone scartata dall’album del
gruppo, o simili. Un extended
play é tradizionalmente un disco
pit corto diun normale LP, di-
ciamo sotto i 25 minuti. Erano
distinzioni importanti ai tempi
del vinile: un singolo stava su un
disco a 7”, un EP andava sui 10”,
con costi di produzione diversi

€ prezzi di acquisto diversi. Sin-
goli ed EP hanno continuato a
esistere nell’era del CD, mai costi
di produzione erano molto pit
allineati (il CD era lo stesso per
tutti e tre i formati); ed esistono,
o meglio resistono, anche nell’era
dello streaming. Nella quale
continuano, a intervalli rego-
Jari, a raccontarci che il formato
“album” é destinato a finire, che
nessuno pensa pit in termini di
“disco”, che conviene frazionare
il materiale e moltiplicare le us-
cite per rimanere sui radar. Sara
vero. A volte in effetti gli artisti
pubblicano anche 4-5 tracce a
intervalli di tempo regolari prima
di pubblicare il disco intero,
magari un album di 10 tracce che
sembra la versione extended di
un EP inesistente uscito 4 mesi
prima. Ma d’altra parte ci sono

popstar in grado di pubblicare

lo stesso album in tre o quattro
versioni differenti (“deluxe”,

TESTO DI
FRANCESCO FARABEGOL

“plus”, “extended”, “2.1” e idiozie
simili) per far si che un unico
inedito possa essere percepito

dal pubblico all’interno di una
cornice “album”. Ma voglio dire,
perché al fan medio di Annalisa,
che ascolta in streaming e compra
sei dischi a decennio, dovrebbe
importare che Movimento Lento
sia presente su Nudaio Deluxe
(la versione estiva di Nudaz1o,

che era la versione post Sanremo
di Nuda) piuttosto che mollato

a caso dentro alla sua pagina ar-
tista? Risposta onesta: perché si.
Poi si, continueranno a spiegarci
che pensare in termini di “album”
é antiquato e tutto il resto, ma chi
registra e ascolta la musica conti-
nua a concepire l'esistenza di una
cosa che si chiama “EP”, a pid di
30 anni dall'ultimo giorno in cui
parlare di “EP” poteva avere un
qualunque senso economico. Non
é merayiglioso?

Im landlichen Raum sieht es noch

I asked the leaf whether it was frightened because it
was autumn and the other leaves were falling. The leaf
told me, "No. During the whole spring and summer I
was completely alive. I worked hard to help nourish the
tree, and now much of me is in the tree. I am not
limited by this form. I am also the whole tree, and when
I go back to the soil, I will continue to nourish the tree.
So I don't worry at all. As I leave this branch and float
to the ground, I will wave to the tree and tell her, 'I will
see you again very soon'."

That day there was a wind blowing and, after a while, I
saw the leaf leave the branch and float down to the
soil, dancing joyfully, because as it floated it saw itself
already there in the tree. It was so happy. I bowed my
head, knowing that I have a lot to learn from the leaf.

Packaging with Popcorn

Prior to the Second World War, popcorn was a popular packaging material
for shipping in crates and barrels. During this era domestic and
commercial shippers filled their shipping boxes and crates, with popcorn,
“excelsior” (curled wood shavings), wadded pieces of paper, and
corrugated cardboard. During World War II, the US military used popped
popcorn as packaging material for spare parts. However, they found
some people would salvage the packing for food, making them ill, so
the practice was stopped. During the 1940’s and early 1950’s the
Germans and Americans introduced, for the first time, non-
biodegradable packaging materials made from polyester-based urethanes
and polystyrene. During the years of the 1960’s and 70’s, American,
Japanese and German companies introduced varieties of packaging
materials made from hydrocarbons, and polymers such as polyethylene.
All these non-biodegradable packaging materials are becoming more
and more of an environmental nuisance because they are non-perishable.
