If you've just stumbled onto this blog, please forgive the appearance; it's still under construction. If I've used one of your photos (found on Google) in a lecture and you don't approve, please write a comment and I'll remove it.

The purpose of this blog is to explain the basics of art and culture to English language learners in secondary school in Slovakia. This is not for profit. If you look to your right, you'll see a long list of topics that I plan to cover. This is a large project that will most likely take years to complete, covering some topics I know little about (like dance), so I will be borrowing heavily from other experts, with their permission, giving credit wherever possible. Please be patient, and, of course, all advice is greatly appreciated.

Film Celebrities

There are too many talented actors and directors to list, so I've decided to write a bit about those you might not know, but definitely should. So, I'm skipping Brad Pitt, DiCaprio, Angelina Jolie, DeNiro, J-Lo, Halle Barry, Julia Roberts, Will Smith, Tom Hanks, etc. You know all about them, but you might not know these greats:








Red Letter Media explains why the Star Wars franchise was a dismal failure. The speaker here pretends to be a psychopath. It's a joke. He pretends for two reasons:

1. Even a crazy person can see the failure of these films.
2. Only a crazy person would waste his time explaining all the failings of the films.

David Lynch


Trey Parker & Matt Stone

Gus Van Sant

Lars Von Trier
