“Like so many of Richard Linklater’s movies, Dazed and Confused is about how memory operates (and what memories mean). When I recall my most insane high school experiences, it’s difficult to untangle what truly happened, what seems retrospectively plausible, and what I pretend to remember in my mind. No film has ever combined those three realities as adroitly as Dazed and Confused. But that’s not something you can realize by watching it once. Mythology requires repetition.”
— Klosterman on Dazed and Confused
“I owe my first inkling of the problem of infinity to a large biscuit tin that was a source of vertiginous mystery during my childhood. On one side of this exceptional object was a Japanese scene; I do not recall the children or warriors who configured it, but I do remember that in a corner of the image the same biscuit tin reappeared with the same picture, and in it the same picture again, and so on (at least by implication) infinitely…”
— Borges, When Fiction Lives in Fiction.

Memorandum book of an American merchant, [Massachusetts?], 1777
A small memorandum book kept by an American merchant during the American Revolution. Records payments made and received (in both dollars and pounds), notes of things accomplished, tallies of goods received, and other memoranda. Other contents include a double-page notation of “Surinam cargo rec’d.” including payments received from C. Ellery and Jos. Rogers. The anonymous writer of this record book was also involved in real estate dealings, with entries on “Cash paid John Ayers for his farm,” and other farms and houses in Norwich and Colchester. One page contains a small ink drawing of a house floor plan. Other transactions noted involve molasses, sugar, wheat, and other agricultural products. Purchases from Nathan Gardner include “negro Wom” and “negro,” for the labor of two African-Americans.

I think this is the first off-brand notebook I’ve posted here.

Went on a hike and found a farm.

"The next entry in the numerogroup Local customs series is Cavern Sound, which documents a music studio with the same name built into an active limestone mine (and former mineral quarry) in Independence, Missouri.

"Founded by Gerald “Jerry” Riegle and a host of engineering partners, the men would rent out their cave to anyone who could afford the $300/day rate. This included gospel artists, local garage bands, country acts, folk singers, and James Brown." via tinymixtapes

“Local Customs: Cavern Sound is the story of a studio, certainly. But also tells the tales of studio rats, high school hopefuls, and unflagging lifers on the fringe of the music business. Fly over country? They were so underground they couldn’t hear the planes, let alone see them.”

“[The] man who listens with easy attention to the saddest prosing,—who delights the speaker with the impression his words seem to produce: this man, who only throws in an assenting smile, puts a single, well-timed question, or expresses a doubt, certain of being easily removed,—is the man of real genius, a sort of nonpareil in fact, and the rarest of all apparitions in modern society.”

For the last couple weeks I’ve been telling Logan a continuing bedtime story about the last boy in the forest. Pinterest has been a surprising source for a quick burst of inspiration.
