Cool juxtapositions

A gentleman and a scholar

On my Twitter stream this morning was this from kjell_:

“The disappearance of age-old pleasures and privileges is the first unmistakable sign of progress.” -Bernard Rudofsky

followed by this from Vaguery:

scanning an 1850 Edinburgh Philosophical Journal, just ’cause. And for the Agassiz

Of course it’s convenient that Vaguery’s Twitter things have a very high proportion of “scanning some cool old document to save it for the world”. Still, I thought it was cool :-).

And I don’t know what the rest of you are doing this evening, but we’re going to the British Museum to see the Chinese terra cotta army (or the bit of it that’s on display there at the moment)! You never know, I might take a photo (or 200).

  1. Hooray! I am on the interwebs or the webernets or in teh tubez… uh… That’s me right there!

    I hope you have a good time at the terra cotta army exhibit. That is such an awesome museum!

  2. I like the idea of you being “in teh tubez” – sound very radio circa 1937 :-). I’m definitely looking forward to yet another visit – it is a tremendous place. Thanks for our wonderful day there!
