Skulls attack smartphones

The BBC reports how smartphones suffer skulls attack. I am mesmerized by the headline. Then, a thought runs the rope back to a bunch of photos of contemporary pirates.

Finisterrae's Cronotopo

I just found this in my inbox. It sounds both delightful and delicious.

"The Cronotopos is defined by Mikhail Bakhtin (writer 1934\1985) "a time-space", that is a kind of interconnection, through that it is possible to describe, at the same time, an historical and imaginary time and spacePLEO and URKUMA choose to take as reference Murray Schaffer's soundscapes, recording 30 seconds of sound every 5 kilometers along Salento's coast, from T.Castiglione(Jonic coast) to Casalabate(Adriatic coast). 185 kilometers were scoured and "recorded" , from 9.36 a.m. to 7.20 p.m. in 28.06.2004; passing trough "finisterrae's coast", which was considered the border-land of the south-east of Italy. The listener can live again the sonic exploration of PLEO and URKUMA recordings. Every sample is assembled obtaining a single track, made by "fade-in and fade-out" technique. It is a "sonic-safari" through nature, buildings, streets, pre-recorded bells, aqueduct, dogs, voices...silence."

Beirut bar '1975'

Welcome to the Beirut bar '1975'.

"Fierce militiamen, sporting beards and army helmets, walk amid civilians and sandbags. Welcome to Beirut's "1975", a bar that seeks to recapture the atmosphere of the Lebanese civil war.

At the lower end of Monot street, the beating heart of the capital's vibrant nightlife, revellers walk into bar "1975" to find themselves thrown back into the tragic, but warm spirit of the devastating 15-year war."

Counterculture blooms

Bruce Eisner reminds me of a book I've been meaning to add to my fresh book list and blogs some excerpts from Timothy Leary:

"But the focus of counterculture is the power of ideas, images, and artistic expression, not the acquisition of personal and political power. Thus, minority, alternative, and radical political parties are not themselves countercultures. While many countercultural memes have political implications, the seizure and maintenance of political power requires adherence to structures too inflexible to accommodate the innovation and exploration that are basic to the countercultural raison d?'tre. Organization and institution are anathema to counterculture."

The pill post

Druggists refuse to give out pill.

"In Madison, Wis., a pharmacist faces possible disciplinary action by the state pharmacy board for refusing to transfer a woman's prescription for birth-control pills to another druggist or to give the slip back to her. He would not refill it because of his religious views."

Overground skyplayers

I don't normally blog about football, not really my cup of tea. But then someone told me about a group of geezers that have started playing on the rooftops of Rome. And I thought it sounded pretty cool.

Curiously, there is something a tad media-savvy about this story too, as it gets bounced between daily newspapers and TV news.

Kinetic dress & future fashion

Perhaps what I find most exciting about the kinetic dress is this forecast of the future through a pattern of the past.

Its meta-Victorian cut making it seem retrospectively designed for Ada Lovelace.

And then, as I think of Steampunk in relation to late 20Century, I can't help feel that this infant century is much closer to the 1700s.

Shit happens

As the civil side of a global society reels in shock and disbelief at the re-election of Bush and the democratic voting out of democracy, the thong-wearing thong thief is caught.
