Michelangelo’s Handwritten 16th-Century Grocery List


  Because the servant he was sending to market was illiterate… Michelangelo illustrated the shopping lists — a herring, tortelli, two fennel soups, four anchovies and ‘a small quarter of a rough wine’ — with rushed (and all the more exquisite for it) caricatures in pen and ink.

Barry Commoner Dies at 95 - NYTimes.com

He was called “the Paul Revere of Environmentalism.”


  His four informal rules of ecology were catchy enough to print on a T-shirt and take to the street: Everything is connected to everything else. Everything must go somewhere. Nature knows best. There is no such thing as a free lunch.


That’s the second great Marxist we’ve lost this week at the age of 95. RIP.

? SMALL BUSINESS

Screenshot from Let There Be Light (YouTube) John Huston’s 1946 documentary about soldiers returning from World War II with PTSD. Paul Thomas Anderson claims it was a major influence on The Master — and admitted, “There’s stuff that we kind of ripped off, line for line, from that film.”
