Honorable Bird

Tonight at 8:00 PM on BRAVO:

Black Rain

Michael Douglas and Andy Garcia are New York detectives caught up in a gang war in Japan. Masahiro: Ken Takakura.

Masahiro: “Now — music and movies are all America is good for.

From yesterday’s entry Library:

“… this is the Idea that is put forward for our response. There is nothing mythological about Christian Trinitarian doctrine: it is analogical. It offers itself freely for meditation and discussion; but it is desirable that we should avoid the bewildered frame of mind of the apocryphal Japanese gentleman who complained:

‘Honourable Father, very good;
 Honourable Son, very good; but
 Honourable Bird
     I do not understand at all.’ “

Music and



National Museum

See, too, Inscape (4/22/04), The Proof and the Lie (11/30/03), and Hatched (4/21/04), and recall that the theme of Black Rain is counterfeiting.

For a related meditation on the color black, see Kawabata’s The Old Capital, quoted in an entry of Aug. 1, 2003.
