The Arts

My time for the Arts decreased greatly during my time as an MBA student and a CFA® Candidate. Thankfully those Dark Ages have ended. I now hope to find more time for films, literature and music.

The art I am most associated with online is painting, specifically miniature painting. I’m relatively well read. And I have definitely spent too much time writing. I don’t go to the cinema often, however I do have an excellent recollection of the films I have seen and studied. Music remains a part of my life, but I don’t see as many concerts or play much guitar lately. I still lust after a Gretsch.

If you are interested in the Arts you should peruse this archive of blog posts below or you can send me a question using email or social media.

One idea I had was to decrease the number of albums from every CD I own to say one hundred. I thought this would make the code run better as a lot of effort is spent trying to find information about obscure albums. Even my top 100 albums includes some unusual choices…

Hitler’s Children: A documentary

Wednesday, July 11th, 2012

I just finished watching the documentary “Hitler’s Children” on the Knowledge Network. It isn’t a great film, but it did get me thinking. Adolf Hitler of course had no children, but other members of the inner circle had children and now grandchildren. A Jewish filmmaker interviewed several of them and asked them about how they felt bearing such infamous surnames. Some of them have written books, some have moved out of Germany, others have avoided talking about it or had lived with fear or guilt or both…
