It’s the first Friday in November and it feels like summer here in North Dakotaland with temperatures soaring into the upper 50s beneath hazy skies. It feels like football outside and I can almost hear Ohio State’s TBDBITL.
I’m sneaking out West today for a quick surveillance trip through the Bakken with my trusty camera and notebook at my side. Look for images next week!
Otherwise enjoy a little list of quick hits and varia:
- Digenis Akritis.
- Medieval Muslims on Ancient Egypt.
- How do you know when society is about to fall apart?
- Maybe the answer is in the endless Dirk Obbink drama?
- American and the Fall of the Roman Republic.
- The politics of casting Cleopatra.
- Hearing Corwin Hall (also live).
- Blank Screen: Don DeLillo’s The Silence.
- There is No Truth, There is Only Workflow.
- Is it Bandcamp Friday?
- The Waldan Heritage Collection.
- California Audio Labs Alpha Tube Analog Processor (DAC).
- What I am reading: Edward González-Tennant, The Rosewood Massacre: An Archaeology and History of Intersectional Violence (2018).
- What I am listening to.
