Avant-Garde Persuasions

 

Nobody in the history of culture has known more about the art of persuasion than the avant-garde painters, sculptors, writers, composers, choreographers, and impresarios who transformed European art from the end of the nineteenth century to the middle of the twentieth century. Generally working with little or no institutional support, these extraordinary individuals built a formidable audience even as they rejected every single one of the audience’s assumptions about the nature of narrative, syntax, sight, sound, and reality itself.

  • Does the rules committee follow the rules? 2014/07/23
      Last Thursday, the Judicial Council’s Rules and Projects Committee (RUPRO) met to take up the issue of the renaming of the Administrative Office of the Courts, as requested by the Chief Justice.  The RUPRO meeting, conducted telephonically, was slated to run an hour.  It lasted only 15 minutes.

    “This retirement at once changes everything, and changes nothing.” Administrative Director of the AOC Steven Jahr   Doublespeak.

What bothers us the most about this statement is that […]

    For those of you who work for or have ever worked for the AOC as well as many of you in the courts, a move made this week to change the name of the administrative office of the courts is laughable and serves only to feverishly repaint the titanic just before it dips below the […]

  • When the court falsifies the record it undermines the integrity of the judicial system 2014/06/20
    Nobody is above the law. Well, except sometimes, when you’re a California judge. We generally make it a point to shy away legal cases and focus on what is wrong with the judicial branch. Mostly what is wrong with the judicial branch can be found in San Francisco. However……sometimes we see a series of incidents […]
