That is from the web site of Nancy Hanrahan, who teaches sociology and critical theory and music at George Mason.  Just recently I was talking to a Polish man whom I met standing in front of The Village Vanguard, and who claims to own 20,000 jazz LPs, and he told me that Nancy is married to Kip Hanrahan, the esteemed yet still underrated jazz musician, start with Desire Develops an Edge.

That’s one hell of a run-on sentence.

What’s so good about “Adorno”?

Also, what does that have to do with the article text?

And who cares about polish men and jazz musicians?

Seriously, Theodor Adorno? Frankfurt School? Shopping is evil?

I’m repeatedly disappointed that “Plato’s Closet” is a used clothing store.

One hopes you won’t be too disappointed to find out what Plato’s Retreat was, then.

“adorno” in spanish means “ornament”, “adornment”

What is really amusing is that ‘Adorno’ as a particular brand name seems associated with furniture, and the company that uses it is Greek – ‘Adorno is an Athens-based company specialising in bespoke, modern furniture.’ (Sorry, no English pages are available at – – the blurb is from Adorno’s web site designer – such places being a wonderful source of information.)

Possibly, using the extensive international reach of this blog and his expertise in developmental economics, a decision has been made to take a more hands on approach in increasing international trade.

Or not – ‘Adorno,’ referencing both Spanish and Italian, comes up in contexts which suggest it is normal enough in retail trade, at least in English speaking countries like the U.S. and U.K.
