It’s been a major radio telescope for a long time and I’m all in favour of astronomy as a pure science, discovering things about the universe without looking to make big money by marketing product.

 :D


What makes it funnier is that it reminds me of my card for getting a free haircut after going to the same place each time.  :D

Looking into the cover photo for Ornette Coleman's Virgin Beauty I learn it of the Wasaabe tribe taken by Carol Beckwith and Angela Fisher for one of their many books on African ceremonies.

Google searching photos by them I thought the one above particularly striking.

Indeed, a striking photograph.



I love the crazy creativity of "Les sapeurs/sapeuses" in Kinshasa or Brazzaville.

"Anton Bruckner arrives in Heaven” - Silhouette drawing by Otto Böhler



Are all those welcoming him identifiable?  Liszt and Wagner up front, of course, Schubert and Schumann next, Mozart looking the wrong way, Bach at the organ.  Not sure about the others.  No sign of Brahms, of course - oh, no, I'm forgetting, he went to the other place...

... probably Beethoven to the right of Mozart, and maybe Weber between Mozart and Schumann (I haven't done any verification, though).

Gluck and Haydn maybe there too, possibly Händel (then the row is completed).

EDIT: Yes, that's it:

I wouldn’t know where Brahms ended up, but unless Bruckner took several months to make it to heaven, when he arrived there Brahms would still have been firmly on earth.  ;)

It's years, if not centuries, in Purgatory, isn't it?  (In fact, the whole scene has probably yet to happen.)  Then there's probably a queue a bit like we've got at Dover at the moment...
