Pontiac (OT)

Curious historical fact: Yesterday was the 10th anniversary of the death of the American car brand Pontiac, named for the city in Michigan where they were first built, which was named for an Odawa (Ottowa) chieftain who was assassinated in 1769. The last of the final 100 G6 sedans rolled off the assembly line on April 27th, 2009. None other than Bob Lutz placed the blame on the Feds, who were urging GM to cut brands during the post-crash bankruptcy and bailout. Olds was already gone by that time...

Random Excellence: Photographer Unknown

I thought I'd try something a little different for "Random Excellence" today. This isn't an expressive photograph; it's a descriptive one. That's its purpose. It's not "authored" in the sense we usually think of. It's an auction house catalog photograph of an object for sale. For some reason I was struck by this Garry Winogrand comment, at the outset of the new documentary: Winogrand: "Well, what is a photograph?" Background voice: "I don't know. You tell me what they meant to you." Winogrand (...

On Monks and Email

Medieval monks thought a lot about thinking. As University of Georgia history professor Jamie Kreiner elaborates in a recent Aeon article: “Their job, more than anything else, was to focus on divine communication. For these monks, the meditating mind wasn’t supposed to be at ease. It was supposed to be energised. Their favourite words for describing concentration stemmed from the Latin tenere, to hold tight to something. The ideal was a mens intentus, a mind that was always and actively ...

Kartje: Josh Rosen’s classy exit, David Gettleman’s folly and other NFL draft musings

His name loomed over the entire NFL draft, for reasons which, like most matters regarding Josh Rosen, were not of his own volition. Just one year after the Cardinals traded up to choose him in the first round, just weeks after reiterating that he was still “the guy” in Arizona, the Cardinals used the No. 1 overall pick on his replacement. They plastered the team Instagram account with photos of their new quarterback, Kyler Murray, then edited Rosen out of their hype videos. It was not subtle. Th...

Virgil van Dijk branded Liverpool’s best ever defender

Van Dijk wins Player of the Year award Virgil van Dijk joined Liverpool in January of 2018 from Southampton for a fee of around £75m. At the time, a £75m fee did seem somewhat excessive. However, the Dutchman has shown over the last 18 months why Liverpool paid so much for him. VVD is a huge reason why Liverpool’s defence has tightened up so much in the last year or so. His superb efforts have been rewarded recently with van Dijk being named PFA and BBC  Player of the Year. The votes have been...
