Fall is struggling to let go of North Dakatoland this year, but apparently when I was away winter finally offered a few flurries and more appear to be on the way this weekend. The onset of winter weather is always good for the blog, the book, and that stack of articles begging to be read.
A few pre-varia updates: The Tourist Guide to the Bakken will continue to appear over the next few weeks over at Medium. If you haven’t checked it out, you should. You might also want to check out the interesting coverage of the ongoing Atari auction both on the blog and at Ebay.
So, on to the quick hits:
- The supercool Lechaion harbor project is in Archaeology Magazine.
- After the dismay abated, another statement by the AIA on the St. Louis Society’s sketchy dealings.
- Congratulations to James Osbourne on the appearance of Approaching Monumentality in Archaeology. IEMA Proceedings 3. SUNY Press 2014.
- A Roman period silver treasure revealed.
- Magic clothes buried in an attic in Nova Scotia.
- Cyber-Archaeology: A Post Virtual Perspective.
- A photographer channels the Thirties Generation.
- Section drawings of the Kowloon Walled City.
- World religion.
- Older articles are becoming more important. This is good for me since I stopped reading new scholarship in graduate school.
- Kinesthetic Learning.
- Read the first page of William Gibson’s new novel The Peripheral. The first scene is in a 1977 Airstream camper covered in insulation foam. The Bakken is the future.
- The Dawn of Def Jam.
- Lots of interesting conversations about the $100 stereo system.
- Maybe I’m blogging wrong.
- What I’m reading: R. Bringhurst, The Elements of Typographic Style. Version 3.1. Vancouver 2005.
- What I’m listening to: Arca, Xen; Mekons, Curse of the Mekons.
It’s a dog’s life.
