This week officially ushered in Spring. In the New York area, forsythia, snowdrops and willows are hinting at revealing themselves soon. Until Spring’s fervent arrival, I have Stephen Orr’s new book, Tomorrow’s Garden, to rely on for inspiration of “what could be”. I first got to genuinely know Stephen, the gardening editorial director for Martha Stewart Living magazine, through music. On his garden blog, whatweretheskieslike, Stephen, will seasonally post his play lists. I listen while working and while looking at the site’s wonderful photography and varied posts about such subjects as mushroom hunts, Sissinghurst Castle and small nepenthes.

Detail from a photograph of World War I cryptographers trained by William and Elizebeth Friedman, Aurora, Illinois, early 1918. By facing either forward or sideways, the soldiers formed a coded phrase utilizing Francis Bacon’s biliteral cipher. The intended message was the Baconian motto “Knowledge is power,” but there were insufficient people to complete the r (and the w was compromised by one soldier looking the wrong way).Included as a pull-out poster in issue 40, Knowledge Is Powe is also available for purchase in an unfolded version suitable for framing. To see a large version of the full photograph, go here. Decoded version is here. How to Make Anything Signify Anything
What a 'Liberal Media' Might Look Like Editor’s Note: For decades now, the American Right has pushed the myth that the national U.S. news media is “liberal,” even though the owners are mostly wealthy corporations run by rich executives who generally favor Republicans over Democrats. And that was true even in the days before Fox News and right-wing-dominated talk radio. Even the limited inroads of liberalism in media have been under pressure in recent days with MSNBC’s ouster of liberal icon Keith Olbermann and AOL’s purchase of HuffingtonPost (raising new questions about Arianna Huffington’s ideological sojourns). However, in this essay, Lisa Pease contrasts what today’s media is versus what a “liberal media” might look like: I’m surprised that otherwise intelligent people continue to believe the myth that the media is “liberal.”

On Friday night a few old friends and I went to a Friday the 13th gig featuring the likes of Melbourne regulars Rat VS Possum and Montero playing alongside the unique and painfully-hip emotive electronica of John Maus from the US-of-A. I was expecting the usual from Mr Maus- A geeky guy standing behind a MacBook Pro, pretending to line up another loop on his midi pads and tweak the treble while placidly delivering moody vocals channeling a despondent Ian Curtis. What we got was something incredible, frightening, psychotic, unique, and genius. The entire croud, me included, started the set in disbelief. Here’s this dude just fuckin’ yellin’ and screamin’ and smashing his head on the mike and going totally mental. YOU MIGHT LIKE THIS < we saw this and thought of you > - Part 2

Dear Dad, We're in the polar vortex this week, and last week we had a blizzard. I know I'm not supposed to talk about the weather, but you would've really liked this storm – you would've thrown on your loden coat, duck boots and tam o' shanter and jauntily stomped down the length of sixth avenue, your mustache collecting flurries.

Frau Liebe Vor ein paar Jahren gab es hier ja mal die Rubrik Einkaufskorb. Vor ein paar Jahren- ihr wisst schon: DAMALS. Die Idee war jedenfalls, mal genauer hinzusehen woher die Lebensmittel kommen, die man sich so schmecken lässt und mehr auf Regionalität zu achten. Leider ist der virtuelle Einkaufskorb recht schnell wieder eingeschlafen obwohl ich natürlich weiter eingekauft, gekocht und gegessen habe.

I can see November on my TV… so I turned it off « Margaret and Helen Margaret, all it takes is ten minutes of channel surfing and you quickly find out that the number of problems facing America seem to correspond with the number of channels offered on cable television. I told Harold to cancel our subscription and get out the old rabbit ears. If Glenn Beck hasn’t met a half-man-half-monkey yet, he didn’t get out much during his rally. There was more knuckle dragging on the National Mall that day than the National Zoo… about 89,000 more.
