I don't know how I've never seen this before, but Pete Townshend wrote a glowing review of King Crimson's "uncanny masterpiece" of a first album in 1969:

"Twenty first schizoid man is everything multitracked a billion times, and when you listen you get a billion times the impact. Has to be the heaviest riff that has been middle frequencied onto that black vinyl disc since Mahlers' 8th."
Promenade the Puzzle: The Poetic Vision of Peter Sinfield. Exploring the lyrical, pictorial and conceptual metaphors of early King Crimson.

"If a technology is new when you are an adolescent, it is truly yours; your parents don’t know how to use it, and older kids are busy with some slightly outdated thing you’re not interested in. You use the new thing to connect with peers and carve out a knowledge-based niche with its own humor and aesthetics. Every few years, the technology in question changes, but this dynamic seems to be eternal — at least since the dawn of industrialization."
One of the greatest pleasures of teaching design history to college students is time travel.

A nice appreciation of one of my favorite childhood movies:

"And yet 30 years on from its initial lukewarm reception, 'Return to Oz' remains one of the most unheralded near-classics of 'family' cinema, a beautifully shot, magnificently scored film (anchored by nine-year-old Fairuza Balk's supremely assured performance) that has what so many movies aimed at children lack: a real sense of wonder and imagination. And of course it doesn't shy away from darkness, a quality that makes it unsuitable for very young children but which also gives it a sense of real depth and real stakes. Watching the film again for the first time since I was a child, I was shaken by Murch's strikingly dark, imaginative imagery, pummeling sound design, blistering score and Oscar-nominated special effects. It's no wonder it had such an effect on me."

Introduction
Eric D. Dixon holds a bachelor's degree in journalism from Brigham Young University, and although he originally planned to pursue a life in newspapers, he never got over his 1997 internship at the Cato Institute. He has since kept a foot in both journalism and public policy, working for the Show-Me Institute, U.S. Term Limits, Americans for Limited Government, the Cascade Policy Institute, Liberty magazine, the Oregon Newspaper Publishers Association, and the Idaho Press-Tribune.
