A clown, raccoon buddy, a Studebaker, and baseball players…?

The State Library and Archives of Florida’s Flickr Commons page, Florida Memory, is kind of killing it today with weirdness.

I love it.

Medusa for days

I’m doing some research on Medusa and came across a John Singer Sargent piece in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. And holy wow, the MFA has a TON of Medusa stuff! YES. Sometimes finding the repository of a piece is a great way to serendipitously uncover a bunch of other things…

John Singer Sargent, Perseus on Pegasus Slaying Medusa, 1922-1925

Scaraboidal gem with gorgon as winged centaur seizing a lion, Greek, 6th century B.C.E.

Vase with cover, German, 1774–1814


Oil flask (lekythos) in the form of a bust of Medusa, Greek, East Greek, 6th century B.C.E.

The Compleat Explorer

I love this illustration by Griffith Taylor from ’11. 1911, that is!

Mycophilia

Here in the Pacific Northwest, we are entering the first of our mushroom seasons. Actually, you can find mushrooms year-round here, but if you like to eat them, now’s the time to learn about foraging for the edibles! I got into mycology while reading Mycophilia: Revelations from the Weird World of Mushrooms, by Eugenia Bone. If you enjoy Michael Pollan’s well-researched and accessible writing style and learning about all aspects of mushrooms, you’ll like Mycophilia.
