Today is October 13th, which makes it, if I’ve done my math correctly, the 128th anniversary of opening night of Le Cirque des Rêves.
So today I will be doing something I don’t normally do on tumblr: I’ll be retumbling circus-inspired things throughout the day.
Above is a close-up of the original paper cut art by the wonderful Helen Musselwhite from the US cover. (It’s hanging in my living room.)
Neat! Morgensterns’ book is one of my absolute favourites. A near perfect blend of magic, drama and love!
The mind of a writer can be a truly terrifying thing. Isolated, neurotic, caffeine addled, crippled by procrastination, consumed by feelings of panic, self-loathing and soul-crushing inadequacy… and that’s on a good day.
Listen and let your self be amazed; let your ears smile in wonder; let your soul fly!
I like that Apple is slowly being recognised in other industries where they also belong. Just like Apple being at the intersection of tech and art, I think they are at similar intersections in other areas. For instance tech and fashion, and tech and style. One question is, will they be able to tackle style as it is a much longer game than fashion? Or will they just focus on the fashion side?
Man to Man: Talking “Man Stuff”
I guess I am a bit of a car guy, so that’s not really a problem. I don’t mind hearing about hunting, since I am interested even though I do not hunt my self.
Sports is trickier. I am thoroughly uninterested. At least sports that tend to be popular in Scandinavia holds little to no interest to me. I can vaguely get into things like equestrian sports, cricket, baseball and rugby. But, equestrianism aside, those are virtually unheard of here.
But I’ll try. Brett McKay is right. So I’ll try to at least keep an eye and an ear out. I have gone this route so far, but I will do it in a more conscious way now.
