By now, most everyone will have heard about Jason Collins. It is an inspiring and wonderful day. Take a moment to read about his decision and experience in his own words. The best column of the day was a defense from Drew Magary regarding the most obvious (and bullshit argument) to be made against him: Why Does It Matter If Jason Collins is a “Bad” Player.
The Spawn’s sporting endeavors kept me from writing (FYI: it is totally worth it).
The bonus track from their 2012 release is the best song off the album. The effects in the song are neatly used and the theme of a darkened and rotting playground/carnival is reinforced by the gloomy melancholy. Beautifully done. Enjoy!
Science, Science Fiction and Fantasy blog io9 runs a series on their site regarding modern ruins and their states as they decay from human abandonment and non involvement. To an archeologist, this means a lot as we watch the taphonomy of the building and the site. It is sobering to watch what was once amazingly beautiful or important fall apart. In the words of Yeats, “the center cannot hold, things fall apart.”
Again, I won’t be writing a Nocturnal Rumination this night. Enjoy the images instead.
