newsweek:

A message in a bottle tossed in the sea in Germany 101 years ago and believed to be the world’s oldest has been presented to the sender’s granddaughter, a museum said on Monday.
A fisherman pulled the beer bottle with the scribbled message out of the Baltic off the northern city of Kiel last month, said Holger von Neuhoff of the International Maritime Museum in the northern port city of Hamburg. “This is certainly the first time such an old message in a bottle was found, particularly with the bottle intact,” he said.
Researchers then set to work identifying the author and managed to track down his 62-year-old granddaughter Angela Erdmann, who lives in Berlin. “It was almost unbelievable,” Erdmann told the German news agency DPA.
She was first able to hold the brown bottle last week at the Hamburg museum. Inside was a message on a postcard requesting the finder return it to the writer’s home address in Berlin.
"That was a pretty moving moment," Erdmann said. "Tears rolled down my cheeks."

“Man kauft Bücher, der Buchhandel hat Hochkonjunktur. Die meisten finden zum erstenmal so Geld wie Zeit. Denn die Vergnügungen sind selten und kurz geworden, man hat sie bald bezahlt, ist früh wieder daheim und merkt erst jetzt: der Beruf, auf den man ehemals sich ausredete, um nicht lesen zu müssen, war niemals das wahre Hindernis, die Zerstreuung war es. Man sammelt sich nun, und wer zu sich selbst kommen will, geht gern den Weg, der durch die Bücher führt.”

— Heinrich Mann: Die Bücher und die Taten. In: Ders.: Macht und Mensch.

…aka der Ehrliche ist immer der Dumme.

Viel besser: Wegen des Kopierschutzes kann ich meine legal gekauften BluRays auf meinem PC nicht abspielen. Außer, ich kaufe mir noch für teures Geld die passende Software. Und selbst dann habe ich keine Garantie, dass die BluRays einwandfrei funktionieren.

“We dressed up as the book Madeline, with six people dressed up as her and me as Ms. Clavel, their teacher. One of the Madelines, however, was the truly special one…the one with the beard, that is. Our experience was hysterical—I’d walk all the girls (and one guy) down the street in two straight lines. Guys would be walking the other way, whistling or hollering at all the pretty ladies. Then, as they got to the back of the line, they’d see my friend Brennan, then they’d see me, and I could tell that they were suddenly wondering if ALL the Madelines were men.”


Love this

Ich applaudiere!

Erosion Series

This work explores erosion and the disruption of form. Focusing on biological erosion, I wanted to convey the idea of a host being attacked and eaten away by a parasitic virus, highlighting the creeping spread of the infection as it corrupts the body. I have produced a series of angular porcelain forms, sandblasted to wear the surface and reveal inner strata. This aggressive process, contrarily, creates a delicate vulnerability in the shape. The translucency of the porcelain and the interruption of the surface make it possible to glimpse through to layers beneath, creating a tension between the seen and the obscured.
