It’s the day after Thanksgiving and I find myself with a few odds and ends that I’d like to share with you.
First is a little IPhone image that I took this past weekend of a window display at Aeropostale. The sunlight shining in was warm and winter bright and they had these vertical blinds designed to catch and diffract the light – very physicist appealing!
Second, I did just a little bit of sleuthing in follow-up to my post “The Transcendence of the vampire,” and I have found that the entirety of the movie “Le Manoir du Diable” – all three minutes of it – can be found on You Tube. This should not be a surprise. What is perhaps a bit more of a surprise is that it is fun to watch in a retro 1896 sort of way.
Third, and finally there is a very interesting and amusing column in the NY Times by Daniel Menaker (November 23, 2013) entitled “Taking our selfies seriously.” The term “selfie” is getting a lot of press this year. Although as Mr. Menaker points ou,t like all such phrases, it is likely to have its day and then die from selfie-immolation.
