Gioisco del fatto che “a Roma arriveranno con i gallori di procupatore aggiunto due pubblici ministeri assai noti alle cronache nazionali e internazionali, come Raffaele Guariniello, autore di clamorose inchieste (dal doping in casa Juve al caso Thyssen Krupp), e Roberto Scarpinato, pm antimafia per eccellenza, che guidò l’accusa nel processo a Giulio Andreotti”.

Gioisco soprattutto per la nomina di Scarpinato. La mafia non è solo crimine militare e non è solo a Palermo.
Scarpinato a Roma può fare moltissimo per la giustizia e la legalità.
Finchè si saranno uomini come lui potremo continuare a sperare.

Copio integralmente “L’Irrémédiable”, playlist davvero bella di musica lirica, da camera ed eclettica, postata da Squashed nel Motel de Moka.

Une Idée, une Forme, un Etre
Parti de l’azur et tombé
Dans un Styx bourbeux et plombé
Où nul oeil du Ciel ne pénètre;

L’Irrémédiable (1857), Charles Baudelaire.

note: This list may seem complicated, but really a lighthearted weekend commentary. Limitation of recording technology, mp3 particularly is often more apparent than we would like to admit. The music in the list itself is simple fun, pop-ish even, with tongue and cheek melodrama. Hell, redemption and love, the usual subject with acoustic texture. But the big point is this: mp3 has flaw and one must aware of it just like any other technological limitation. In the list, instead of trying to hide recording quality differences, this time around I emphasize it. So one would notice immediately the “muffled” sound of large orchestra, noise floor, reduced quality softer sound, clarity differences of deep bass in various pieces, or the piano texture richness. It is annoying, but at the same time underline the need of awareness that recording technology has limitation. Sound representation is often noticeably inaccurate enough to distort total balance. As a listener it is important to demand better recording quality. (higher recording bit rate, lossless/FLAC) The best technology should be used to remove recording artifact and give as much freedom for artists to communicate their ideas. Of course, ultimately all are only approximation of live performances.
