calling Nat Tuner as a band name, not because I want it but just so no white-boy guitar band is allowed to use it

Medieval rockstar

The last page of a medieval book is usually a protective flyleaf, which is positioned between the actual text and the bookbinding. It was usually left blank and it therefore often filled up with pen trials, notes, doodles, or drawings. This addition I encountered today and it is not what you’d expect: a full-on drawing of a maiden playing the lute, which she holds just like a guitar. A peaceful smile shines on her face. I love this rockstar lady, so unexpectedly positioned at the end of the book, trying to catch the reader’s attention as he is closing it.

The past week I kept thinking how much the unnamed gurumike cats remind me of Ingmar Bergman’s Purrsona Fursona Persona and yeah…jesus christ I didn’t realize how accurate that realization was.

I love these models for the structure of penicillin built by Dorothy Hodgkin in 1945, using X-ray diffraction data. (The diffraction data looks like contour maps.) She won the Nobel Prize in 1964.

The real reason the Second Amendment was ratified, and why it says “State” instead of “Country” (the Framers knew the difference - see the 10th Amendment), was to preserve the slave patrol militias in the southern states, which was necessary to get Virginia’s vote. Founders Patrick Henry, George Mason, and James Madison were totally clear on that … and we all should be too.

I set this as my blog’s header in the mobile app a little while ago and every time I see it it cheers me up a little bit. It’s everything I love — comics, pop, modernism, the 1920s — boiled down to one image. It predicts Kirby and Lichtenstein as well as Varèse and Max Roach, or Max Weinberg. It’s from this comic strip, if you didn’t recognize it immediately, and its place in the sequence is like a fiery post-bop drum solo as the climax to a sedate pre-bop run through of an old standard. And yes, I said pop earlier and here I am talking about jazz but they’re the same thing if you listen right.
