When William Faulkner Set the World Record for Writing the Longest Sentence in Literature: Read the 1,288-Word Sentence from Absalom, Absalom!

Image by Carl Van Vechten, via Wikimedia Commons “How did Faulkner pull it off?” is a question many a fledgling writer has asked themselves while struggling through a period of apprenticeship like that novelist John Barth describes in his 1999 talk "My Faulkner." Barth “reorchestrated” his literary heroes, he says, “in search of my writerly self... downloading my innumerable predecessors as only an insatiable green apprentice can.” Surely a great many writers can relate when Barth says, “it was...

That Caravaggio Found In The Attic Is Being Handled With Unusual Honesty

There has been plenty of disagreement about whether the painting of Judith beheading Holofernes that turned up in Toulouse in 2016 is an original Caravaggio or a copy. But the people selling it are doing the right things: allowing every scholar that wants examine it access, being generous with shows to the public, and leaving the sale to the auctioneer that found it rather than passing it to Sotheby’s or Christie’s. If only this sort of behavior weren’t so rare. – Apollo

Walking Dead Recap: Teenage Scream

Apparently never having heard the saying “Be careful what you wish for!” The Walking Dead’s Henry chased after Lydia in Sunday’s episode, only to get for his troubles something far worse than even a kiss that leaves a wormy aftertaste. (And you thought you were nervous meeting your girlfriend’s mother!) Meanwhile, Michonne was asked to reconsider her stance on both Negan and the much-ballyhooed fair, and actually did adjust her attitude toward one of them. Which? Read on. ‘EYES OPEN — WHERE TH...

Randomly on a Tuesday

1. I have no idea what happened to the last 2 weeks. 2. That’s a lie. There’s just been so much that I find myself ready to quote Inigo Montoya. “Let me explain… No, there is too much. Let me sum up.” 3. I have been to Seattle and back for the last Madrona, and I did it all in snowstorms everywhere I went.  (It was appropriate somehow that the weather was so dramatic, I felt like there should be some reflection of how significant it was to me that the event was ending after 20 years.)  I’ve been...

Episcopal churches host concerts reinterpreting ancient stories in the #metoo era

Episcopal churches are among the venues hosting musical performances by Burning River Baroque, reinterpreting stories from the Bible, ancient mythology, and literature to “[highlight] issues and themes raised by the #metoo campaign.” Cleveland Scene describes Burning River Baroque’s The Other Side of the Story: Untold Perspectives on Familiar Tales as “a program that takes on the issues of ‘toxic masculinity’,” while the group’s webpage explains: Society’s collective understanding of history is ...

‘Veep’ actor Matt Walsh talks end of HBO series and playing the ‘Beauty’ in a rom-com at a French vineyard

When HBO’s “Veep” went on hiatus, actor Matt Walsh had a chance to swap his role as communications director to Julia Louis-Dreyfus’s Vice President Selina Meyer to play a rumpled romantic lead in a rom-com filmed in France. So off he went. The seventh and final season of “Veep” arrives this spring, having wrapped up shooting in December just before the film “Under The Eiffel Tower” arrived in theaters and digital services this month. “The ride has been tremendous,” Walsh said of the time he’s sp...

Markevich’s Marina.

I’ve finished Boleslav Markevich’s 1873 Марина изъ Алаго-Рога (Marina from Aly Rog), which I mentioned recently here, and I must say I thoroughly enjoyed the linguistic stuff described in this 2014 post — towards the start of the novel, the two heroes, Count Zavalevsky and Prince Puzhbolsky, spend a great deal of time analyzing language and literature and talking about their stay in Italy and the things they saw there. Puzhbolsky, who falls hopelessly in love with Marina, first compares her to ...

What the heart wants

I am sure that this has happened to you with yarn, and maybe (whether you are a spinner or not) maybe this has happened to you with a fleece. You are minding your own business, living the cheery life of a textile artist, surrounded with all the yarn (and maybe fiber) that you could ever want (or more) and one day, there it is. Yarn, or fleece or fiber or whatever it is, leaps into your life and proclaims a destiny mingled with your own. This happened to me a while back, at a retreat at Port Ludl...

CSO: Decades after his death, William Grant Still receives his moment in the sun

William Grant Still (1895-1978) Chicago Symphony Orchestra CSO Sounds and Stories January 4, 2019 Mike Thomas When the prolific African-American composer William Grant Still died at age 83 in 1978, he was little known outside specialized circles, and his music — including symphonies, ballets and operas — little performed.

Climate Change Drives Fish Into New Waters, Remaking an Industry (slashdot)

The catch is shifting northward as water temperatures rise, forcing crews to retool their boats and rework their businesses. From a report: Aboard the Stanley K and the Oracle, two 58-foot vessels, Buck Laukitis and his crews chase halibut across the Bering Sea worth $5 a pound at the docks. As sea temperatures rise, and Arctic ice retreats the fish appear to be avoiding warming waters, migrating northward where they cost more to reach, federal fisheries biologists say.

Comment on crescent jam and cheese cookies by K

Hi, Judith. It’s pretty much like it sounds: slowly push and rub chunks of cheese through a mesh sieve, the same kind one also uses to rinse beans, drain pasta, sift flour, strain spices, etc. If you use a very fine mesh, it’ll take a longer time, perhaps prohibitively so. Here’s some info: https://www.talkfood.com/forum/showthread.php?2927-How-do-you-sieve-cottage-cheese Deb, I was thinking of a slightly savory variation on this using rosemary’d, roasted walnuts, minced and mixed with a touch o...

I am.a decent cook but not great at cookies. These were a wonderful afternoon project with my grandson (near 7), forgiving of slow assembly and shaping, and delicious. Also used up almost all the assorted jars of sprinkles and colored sugar. We’ll do these again.
