Jimmy’s Music Club The Movie?
Looks like another great Jazzfest show, and who doesn’t love James Booker?
There’s also another tribute with Marco Benevento, Johnny Vidacovich and George Porter, Jr. in the usual Thursday The Trio spot at The Maple Leaf on May 1st.

We have a government that says it’s okay to eat Twinkies and Cocoa Puffs and Mountain Dew, but it’s illegal to drink raw milk and eat compost-grown tomatoes and Aunt Matilda’s pickles.

The art of destruction

These three images represent a realization I had the other day: a damaged or destroyed object may be visually more appealing than the same object in its original state. The top image shows the pulpy remains of the National Library of Iraq, which was destroyed in 2003. At present the library, which included thousands of ancient books, looks more like the surface of a rock than a collection of thoughts and ideas. The charcoaled objects in the middle are three papyrus scrolls from Herculanaeum, a Roman city that was covered by volcanic ash in 79 AD. Its famous library was reduced to cigaret buds like these. The lower book, made in the fifteenth century, is damaged by beetle larvae - “bookworms” - who ate through its pages. As much as I would love to see these objects restored to their full glory, there is something oddly appealing about them in their present state. Sometimes destruction creates beauty.

Pics: the three rolls are Oxford, Bodleian Library, Gr. Class. f. 25-27 (more here); I blogged about them here. The story of the destroyed Iraq National Library is presented here (the image above is from that story). The “bookworm” image is from Emir O Filipovic (@EmirOFilipovic) and I used it in a blog some time ago (here).

Kitestring is a simple webapp that checks up on you and sends a text message to your emergency contacts if you don’t respond by a designated time.

Enter your ETA and Kitestring will send you a text message to reply to. You can extend your check in time via SMS or check in early. If you don’t respond to Kitestring’s text message, your emergency contact(s) will get your customizable alert message. [x]

Important

Still not an excuse for not telling friends or family what you’re up to before you get into these situations. I can’t help but believe that alone would put a huge dent in the neverending stream of “missing person” emails we get from NOPD that aren’t reallly missing people.
