worth hearing • from NPR Weekend Edition Satuday has a piece on a collection of previously unreleased obscene recordings from the 1890s was just released on CD. Called Actionable Offenses: Indecent Phonograph Recordings from the 1890s.

worth reading • The story behind the recordings at the Archeophone webpage for Actionable Offenses.

also worth hearing • from NPR an Arizona library that has dropped the Dewey Decimal system for a more Barnes & Noble arrangement in order to make the library more ‘accessible’ to patrons. Joke’s on them . . . ever trying FINDING something in Barnes & Noble?

something new • the Washington Post has a review of a new book by Farley Mowat, Bay of Spirits

something old • Amazing collection of fantastic images in the Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections of Cornell University Library

that is STILL a hell of a Codpiece . . . .
