Uninteresting Old Stuff

This stuff is older than the hills and twice as uninteresting. Really, you won't find anything edifying here. Things I want to share, things I have found, things I think are neat. Enjoy being un-edify-ed!

Medieval rockstar

The last page of a medieval book is usually a protective flyleaf, which is positioned between the actual text and the bookbinding. It was usually left blank and it therefore often filled up with pen trials, notes, doodles, or drawings. This addition I encountered today and it is not what you’d expect: a full-on drawing of a maiden playing the lute, which she holds just like a guitar. A peaceful smile shines on her face. I love this rockstar lady, so unexpectedly positioned at the end of the book, trying to catch the reader’s attention as he is closing it.

Half Price Books had Pop! figures of the Apes from the original Planet of the Apes movies. 

And now my dad collects Funko Pop! figures too. Remember kids, the family that collects together runs out of space together.

Getting into Canada is so easy. They’re like “Do you have anything dangerous or illegal?” and you’re like “Nah” and they’re all “Cool bro, welcome to Canada.”

Getting back home is another story.

I found this old music magazine, and I was really fascinated by all these articles looking into the world of the 1980s music scene. In Some ways, it wasn’t very different than it is now.
