Found elsewhere

Nota Bene

Flickr: Wunderkammer is a sort of online curio cabinet of strange objects, marvels and "wonders" like those found in old-fashioned museums of the 16th-18th centuries. I like this Flickr collection of Magical Cards, too. (via Blue Tea)


2 blowhards discusses the current tab mania in graphic design. Tabs are everywhere -- at the top of every web page, it seems, but even in print advertisements and magazine covers, where they're completely non-functional. Which raises a question: just what is it that tabs have come to symbolize? Cyber-sophistication, apparently, or... file cabinet chic?


"We don't really have any mind at all. We think we have a mind; we think we have this thing called my mind, that it's a particular mind. Then we lock ourselves into this structure of our own creation. It's a little prison we put ourselves in. But actually, we aren't anything in particular at all. Once we realize this, then we have complete freedom -- whether we're exploring the mind through writing, or through just sitting there quietly, observing the thoughts as they come up. It's all the same; it's the same free-flowing mind that's taking place. It can be found and expressed in any activity."

"If not for the courage of the fearless crew, the Minnow would be lost, the Minnow would be lost." TV addicts rejoice: The original S.S. Minnow, or one of them, has been found.
