There’s a Lot to Love About the Banksy Art That Popped Up for Valentine’s Day

One lucky home in England got a huge Valentine’s Day surprise.

Kelly Woodruff, who co-owns the property had no idea her house had been hit by the artist...

Considering the Crucifix in the Wild West

Part 1. The Intro   Buckle up. We’re going for a wild ride today. (But at my wife’s request, I’m going to keep it moving.) She liked that last week’s column was info-dense, but also clocked in at 1200 words, rather than the 2500 I was dropping with regularity in #2019. After all the time I spent hoping that 2020 would finally come, it’s hard to believe the year is already 1/12 done. And what does 2020 mean, anyway? Obviously, I know that years are sequential, but who decided to start at 0? We’...

The History of the Fisheye Photo Album Cover

Like gothic script in heavy metal, the fisheye album cover photo seems like a naturally occurring feature of certain psychedelic strains of music. But it has a history, as does the fisheye photograph itself. The Vox video above begins in 1906 with Johns Hopkins scientist and inventor Robert Wood, a somewhat eccentric professor of optical physics who wanted to duplicate the way fish see the world: “the circular picture,” he wrote, “would contain everything within an angle of 180 degrees i...
