On an evening walk with my camara I saw a vintage, baby blue truck with a baby blue “Starry Night” sunscreen. It’s an odd combination: high art mass produced for casual visual consumption, and perhaps purchased at a museum store, contrasted … Continue reading
I recently read the book, “Akhenaten and Tutankhamun: Revolution and Restoration” (Silverman et. al. 2006). The book is 188 pages long. About half of those pages are taken up by image, the other half by text. Thus, in about 90-100 pages you … Continue reading
The Washington Post reports today on yet another major study linking homosexuality with brain differences. The evidence is not conclusive, as reading the article fairly notes, but if scientists, over the next twenty years, solidly lock down the evidence that … Continue reading
The Gilgamesh Epic embodies the tensions between order and wildness, not in the gods Apollo and Dionysus, as Nietzsche claims that the ancient Greeks do, but in the god-like characters of Gilgamesh and Enkidu. Gilgamesh is a city-dwelling ruler of a … Continue reading

I read Ehrman’s book recently and strongly recommend it. I liken Ehrman to an intelligent chess player who puts the squirming reader (who may not, at first, be inclined to agree with him) into methodical and logical checkmate. Ehrman shows why … Continue reading
At the Los Angeles County Museum of Natural History yesterday, I learned a little memnonic device for distinguishing predators and prey. Predators tend to have eyes oriented to the front of the skull and prey tend to have eyes oriented … Continue reading
Let the pursuit of happiness, equality, freedom, and newly discovered marital drama ring:
An anti-gay rights pastor in my local area seems to be auditioning for the lead role of John the Baptist in the ongoing drama of gay marriage in California. He has manage to get quoted in not just the Antelope Valley … Continue reading
