OOOh It Looks to be Gilgamesh to Me
Lenny just sent me some pictures of ice sculptures in China, including this one. Everyone KNOWS I'm obsessed with Gilgamesh. I've been (sporadically but passionately) obsessed with Gilgamesh for about 30 years. I hope the cylinder seals, which I presume were taken in the looting, are in good hands. What else am I mildly obsessed* with... hmmm... that bronze statue of Zeus or whoever, beekeeping, Hroswitha of Gandersheim, spinifex, the paper architects, Fortuny, the X3 chip, flatfiles, David Hockney, Chilcat weavings, 8mm + Super8 movies, etc., etc.
*Don't expect me to talk sensibly about these, though. In fact, I would be happy if no one expected me to talk sensibly about anything. Well, today, anyway.
