Longer version here! I’m not sure who to credit for this /how to credit this, but this is based on a thing I wrote at the end of last year about that Calvin & Hobbes psuedo-comic that went around last year (that I didn’t much like).
Have a bit of Fry & Laurie, friends.
… Wait, what?
Luke and I were looking at Hieronymus Bosch’s painting The Garden of Earthly Delights and discovered, much to our amusement, music written upon the posterior of one of the many tortured denizens of the rightmost panel of the painting which is intended to represent Hell. I decided to transcribe it into modern notation, assuming the second line of the staff is C, as is common for chants of this era.
so yes this is LITERALLY the 600-years-old butt song from hell
EDIT: I still can’t believe this took off like it did this is crazy??? Just wanted to let people know that there are indeed errors in the transcription and this is indeed not a very good recording (I threw this together in like 30 minutes at 1 in the morning,) but I’m working with the music department at my college to get the transcription more accurate!
in the meantime enjoy this fantastic choral arrangement by wellmanicuredman i’m in love

Come on, you guys! Come on! There’s a beer I drank in college, a professor got me drinking, Fullers ESB, which is a beer that always made me feel happy for some reason. It’s a beer a lot of places don’t carry, but I went to a place that had it and enjoyed one or two tonight, (not such that I’m inebriated by any means so please don’t take this as an inebriated drunky-drunk thing). And I was in a good mood all day to begin with, so maybe I’m what Verbal Kint would call an “unreliable narrator.” But my point, here’s my point: my point is come on, internet! I just looked at gifs of model ladies in kinda-superhero costumes looking foxy, and then I followed it almost immediately by looking at gifs of Halloween cats doing funky Halloween stuff, all cute and whatever. This is great; we’re all having a great time! I’m going to go do things that aren’t about the internet now because it’s finally the weekend and I got my work done and so forth, but in conclusion and summation: come on.
Alec Wilkinson writes about Shadow, a project to archive the world’s dreams, and Hunter Lee Soik, its founder: http://nyr.kr/1b7Zl3i
“‘What would happen if we created a space where dreams were organized?’ Soik continued. ‘Show me every car dream. Show me every car dream in Moscow. Show me every red-car dream that involved men living in Las Vegas. Compare that to Tokyo or Paris. Do famous people dream differently? Do you have more positive dreams if you have more money in the bank?’”

The problem with binge-watching this show Hannibal isn’t anything about the show— it’s that when I get on the internet later, with the way I use the internet, things don’t go well. Basically, in case you need reminding on this, don’t read up too much on Japanese performance artists. There aren’t even any Japanese performing artists on the TV show Hannibal! (Spoiler warning?). But don’t let one thing to lead to another when another = clicking a link about Japanese performance artists, basically…
the bajau laut are some of the world’s last true sea normads, living as they have for centuries almost entirely in the waters of the coral triangle (“the amazon of the seas”) on long boats known as lepa lepa.
hunters of fish, pearls and sea cucumbers, the bajau people free dive to depths of 20 meters, hold their breath for up to three minutes, and spend up to 60% of their time in the water submerged - the equivalent of a sea otter. it is a common practice amongst bajau people to intentionally burst their ear drums at an early age to deal with the problem of equalizing.
as photographer james morgan explains, “traditional bajau cosmology - a syncretism of animism and islam - reveals a complex relationship with the ocean, which for them is a multifarious and living entity. there are spirits in currents and tides, in coral reefs and mangroves.” the bajau people, for example, will not spit in the ocean.
in the last few decades, increasingly depleted fish stocks and government efforts have forced many to settle permanently on land and abandon a life of self sufficiency known as cari laut, or ‘searching the ocean’. a dwindling few, however, still choose to live the majority of their lives at sea
