We’re looking ahead to a mild weekend here in North Dakotaland with temperatures in the mid-teens after a brutally cold day today. The downside of these mild February temps is the low overcast skies that will hang around all weekend. Fortunately, today will be clearer, but too cold to really enjoy it.
This weekend will be filled with reading, some book layout, and paperwork associated with the next issue of NDQ that’s due on March 1. The inaugural season of the XFL, however, will provide some additional excitement and I’ve promised both dogs some long walks by the river.
I hope you all have an intriguing weekend and, if you’d like, enjoy some quick hits and varia:
- On Jack Davis.
- Deeper into the Map of Pompeii.
- Byzantine Missions.
- More on the Fall of Rome.
- Impeachment and the Fall of the Roman Republic.
- Mummy issues.
- Notes on the “West” and “Western Civ”
- Latour, Trump and Thunberg.
- Living like the King of Tramps.
- Antarctic Seikos.
- Black History Month reads from NDQ.
- What I’m reading: Tim Jelfs, The Argument about Things in the 1980s: Goods and Garbage in the Age of Neoliberalism. (Morgantown 2018).
- What I’m listening to: Dave Holland, Zakir Hussain, and Chris Potter, Good Hope.
Just another Milsey Monday.
