Thanks again to Dave Keaton for telling me about this awesome Decemberists, Infinite-Jest-inspired-video for “Calamity Song.” Escaton is alive and kicking. There’s also a NY Times article on it here. Watch it.
A nice little article on the Smithsonian’s Andrew Robison, and his 30 year project to protect art after a catastrophe. The fact that the boxes are all labeled WW3, and that the project not only assumes some sort of disaster, but that all the works included are, in some way, already post-apocalyptic, probably deserves some commentary.
So, I’ve been moving for a week and haven’t really had a chance to post much here (nor do anything else), but my new library in my new residence is fully assembled. I finally have a proper office. I’ve been dreaming about this since I was a little boy. (The best part, I finally have all my shelves in one place, and b/c of that, I can’t even fit all my books in the shot.)
