The white guitar went on display in 2019 for the exhibition “Play It Loud” at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, which also featured such historical instruments as the humble Martin acoustic that Elvi...

The Epic of Gilgamesh, the Oldest-Known Work of Literature in World History

You’re probably familiar with The Epic of Gilgamesh, the story of an overbearing Sumerian king and demi-god who meets his match in wild man Enkidu. Gilgamesh is humbled, the two become best friends, kill the forest guardian Humbaba, and face down spurned goddess Ishtar’s Bull of Heaven. When Enkidu dies, Gilgamesh goes looking for the only man to live forever, a survivor of a legendary pre-Biblical flood. The great king then tries, and fails, to gain eternal life himself.

Hotel History: “Wish You Were Here” by Barry Zaid (1980) : In February 2000, there was a unique exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York: “Walker Evans and the Picture Postcard”.

What the Eagles’ “Hotel California” Really Means

During the Satanic panic of the 1980s, a new breed of witchfinder cast a dragnet through pop culture, scooping up songs, artists, and albums that were allegedly part of a demonic conspiracy to corrupt America’s youth. One song routinely appearing on such lists — “Hotel California” by the Eagles. Really? The Eagles? Biggest-selling rock band in the U.S.? Soft-rock superstars who paved the cocaine-colored way for even softer yacht rock superstars? They were hardly Black Sabbath, but ...

Stuart Silver, Museum Designer Who Pioneered Blockbuster Shows, Dead At 84

“As the inventive design director of the Metropolitan Museum of Art [under director Thomas Hoving] in the 1960s and ’70s, [he] turned the presentation of art into a gasp-inducing genre of theater” — most famously in the Treasures of Tutankhamun exhibition of 1978-79 — “giving the staid institution mass appeal and inspiring widespread changes in the style and spirit of museum exhibitions.” – The New York Times

Monthly gleanings for May 2021: yesterday, tomorrow, and time concepts

A few private letters and comments on my post “The Future in the Past” (17 March 2021) allow me to return to it. To begin with, I of course know The Beatles’ song about YESTER (it would have been hard to grow up when I did and not to be exposed to their repertoire). Other than that, I cannot refrain from quoting Rainer Maria Rilke’s line: “Vergangenheit steht noch bevor (“The past is still ahead of us”).It is amazing how pregnant poets’ observations sometimes are!
