I don’t want to suggest that there is nothing left to experience before original works of art except a certain sense of awe, because they have survived, because they are genuine, because they are absurdly valuable. A lot more is possible. But only if art is stripped of the false mystery and the false religiosity which surrounds it. This religiosity, usually linked with cash value, but always invoked in the name of culture and civilisation is in fact a substitute for what paintings lost when the camera made them reproducible.

How to Open a New Book

It takes strength to be gentle and kind:

Do this two or three times in order to limber up the binding. Should you open the volume roughly or carelessly, you may break the back and cause the leaves to loosen.

(Via Boing Boing.)

Time-lapse of me installing new rollers in the 120 carrier for scanning film at work. Unfortunately, some of the exciting action takes place out of the frame. The song is “Bleacher Lovin’” by Slam Dunk (iTunes).

To Stave Off Decline, Churches Attract New Members With Beer

Some patrons are understandably confused. They come in for a brew and there’s a religious service going on in their bar. They expected Trivia Night and they get the Holy Eucharist.

If they did this at Freetail, I would totally go. Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we die.
