Video of the Day
In the Thing’s Mouth of Darkness

84 words / 1:00:58

David Yorkshire and Neil Westwood, in this episode of Mjolnir at the Movies (affiliated with Mjolnir Magazine), discuss John Carpenter’s “Apocalypse Trilogy”: The Thing, Prince of Darkness, and In the Mouth of Madness. They also examine Carpenter in general and discuss why a director who has always identified himself with the political Left has always appealed to Rightists. They also show how Carpenter uses simple techniques to belie his budget constraints, offering good advice for independent filmmakers financing their own small-budget films.

White Man’s Soul, Part 1:
Roxy Music’s Avalon

1,675 words

Soul music is said to be the preserve of the Negro, yet the later soul music of the Negro was not the preserve of the Negro, for it very often relied on Jewish production under the likes of Syd Nathan, Ralph Bass, Jerry Wexler, Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, and on White classical tradition and instrumentation for its orchestral arrangements.

52 words / 25:51

David Yorkshire of Mjolnir: A Magazine for the Creative Arts has produced a video in which he takes us on a tour of the Walhalla memorial in Bavaria, Germany, and discusses the various ways in which state art can be used to support both culture and the state’s own claim to legitimacy.

Reassessing Otto Dix

Otto Dix, Self-Portrait with My Son

2,221 words

Otto Dix was a German artist who is now celebrated as one of the great painters of the twentieth century, probably in no small part because he was put on the National Socialists’ list of degenerate artists, as, to the unthinking postmodern Left, anything the National Socialists hated is automatically considered good. Equally though, the postmodern cultureless cartoon Nazis of today’s corrupted Right consider him a degenerate artist also simply because his artworks were deemed Entartete Kunst by the NSDAP.

Hero Worship & Tommytards

2,380 words

The True Right has always believed in strong leadership and the ability, as Thomas Carlyle wrote, of ‘great men’ to shape history. In his collection of lectures On Heroes, Hero-Worship and the Heroic in History, Carlyle identifies six types of hero: the Hero as Divinity, as Prophet, as Poet, as Priest, as Man of Letters and as King. This is not limited to the Right, for the Left also has its heroes: its revolutionaries and men of theory.

Two Independent Films for the Dissident Right

1,072 words

I have heard it often said that no art is being produced on the Right anymore, that everything we see and hear and experience is deconstructive of traditional Western values, particularly in film. This, however, shows the laziness of many of the talking heads on the Right, who are only too ready to churn out bad news porn and not willing enough to do a modicum of research or promote those creating content.

Zardoz: Natural Order Against the Left

2,482 words

John Boorman’s films are implicitly white, as they address themes that pertain to people of white European descent, whether historical, philosophical, or mythical. For the latter, an example would be the film Excalibur that I recently reviewed. Zardoz is a film that addresses the philosophical. This is another of Boorman’s films that the critic Roger Ebert neither understands nor cares for – and I suspect more the latter, for the film is a biting satire directed at creamy bourgeois Leftists.

Video of the Day
The Normans, a Video Miniseries

100 words / 10:04

David Yorkshire of Mjolnir: A Magazine for the Creative Arts has recently produced a series of videos in which he takes a look at the Normans and the impact they had and have had on English society from various locations of significance in Normandy itself. The first documentary is from Barfleur, embarkation point of the Norman fleet before it set sail to England. Dave offers some general information on the Duchy of Normandy’s foundation and the dukes, as well as background information on England’s recent history leading up to the invasion in 1066. The entire series can be found here.

Ilya Glazunov: An Obituary

1,295 words

Ilya Glazunov is not a name that is widely known in Western Europe, to the point where his passing went largely unnoticed on the 9th July of last year. I personally only found out at the end of the year, and have only just managed to find the time to write this obituary, involved as I am in a number of cultural projects that will bear fruit in the near future. Born into a Russian noble family in St. Petersburg, known at that time as Leningrad in the Soviet Union, he lost his parents to starvation in the siege of that city during the Second World War, he himself being one of the few survivors from his family.

The Left as Cosplay

710 words

Whatever happened to the perfectly good term ‘fancy dress’? I suppose one might argue that ‘cosplay’ emphasises the element of play to it, of playing the role the costume suggests. One such man who loves to do this is Justin Trudeau. There is nothing terribly wrong with that – except that he does it when representing the country he is prime minister of on the world stage. Even worse, the majority of Canadians seem to think this is perfectly normal.  Read more …

The (((Hollywood))) Question – Two Videos

215 words

These are two videos I have made that are connected by the theme of Hollywood. The first begins with an observation in Jared Taylor’s debate with black supremacist Tariq Nasheed in how black supremacists use the rhetoric of 1970s blaxploitation films to explain their situation, which is invariably one of being oppressed by the White Man. This I call “blaxplainin'”. Read more …

What the H&M Debacle Says about Race

384 words

This will be a relatively short article, but it raises some important philosophical questions for those who believe in the false dogma of either race blindness or race as a social construct. Both deny the physical nature of race as a reality. Read more …

Screening Pedophilia:
Egon Schiele: Tod und Mädchen

1,846 words

Austrian arthouse film Egon Schiele: Tod und Mädchen is perhaps most disappointing in that Egon Schiele led a very interesting life, yet the scriptwriter Hilde Berger and director Dieter Berner have succeeded in making it appear rather dull, in the same way as Mike Leigh served up a snore-fest about J. M. W. Turner a couple of years ago. Perhaps the two most interesting aspects of Schiele’s life, his trial for pedophilia and his experiences in the First World War, are completely glossed over Read more …

The Alt Right & the Arts

The Road to Alt Right Artistry

Since Hillary Clinton’s mention of the Alternative Right in one of her speeches, there have been countless discussions about what the Alt Right is and represents, with everyone and anyone, no matter how inappropriate, suddenly declaring they are part of the Alt Right. I think it is quite easy to define what the Alt Right is: it is the postmodern manifestation of what Julius Evola termed the True Right.  Read more …

Tim Burton’s Batman:
Putting the Gothic into Gotham

2,774 words

c7ce5d565bafd080d493ccfdef046f60Origins & Evolution of the Gothic in Film

The gothic is a quintessentially European aesthetic. Moreover, it pertains and appeals more specifically to those of North-West European descent and is to be found in various modes and tropes throughout North-West European culture and contrasts with the Classicism of Southern Europe. Gothic as a term was first applied to medieval art and particularly architecture by Renaissance critics in similar propagandist fashion to how the term Dark Ages was also used to describe the period following the collapse of the Roman Empire.

No Longer Soaring
Eddie the Eagle

EddieTheEagle1,093 words

Eddie the Eagle is the story of Michael “Eddie” Edwards, the English skier and ski-jumper who, by dint of character and hard work, overcame disadvantages and setbacks to set a number of records and became the first British ski jumper to compete in the Olympics in 1988. I saw this film a few weeks ago, but — rather like the film itself — there seemed to be no urgency in reviewing it: the filmmakers hadn’t waited for the release to coincide with a particular anniversary or with a comparable event.

Forgotten History
The Marconi Scandal

Guglielmo Marconi

Guglielmo Marconi

It is the fashion to divide recent history into Pre-War and Post-War conditions. I believe it is almost as essential to divide them into the Pre-Marconi and Post-Marconi days. It was during the agitations upon that affair that the ordinary English citizen lost his invincible ignorance; or, in ordinary language, his innocence […] I think it probable that centuries will pass before it is seen clearly and in its right perspective; Read more …

First things first, here’s the basic outline of the plot. The plot is, in any case, pretty basic. Spoiler warning: the following review reveals plot content that will save you wasting time and money. A bounty hunter named John Ruth (played by Kurt Russell) is on his way to Red Rock by stagecoach and handcuffed to his prisoner Daisy Domergue (Jennifer Jason Leigh), part of the Domergue Gang, who will be sentenced to hang there.

David Yorkshire, editor

“Leftism is the lie writ large. In any case, the right knows that equality itself is a fabrication and can only be achieved and maintained by holding back those who strive for excellence. The opposite of equality is quality. So it is with art. Quality is known instinctively: go into any art gallery and answer honestly which you prefer, Ian Davenport or J. M. W. Turner. Read more …
