Total Lunar Eclipse (April 15, 2014) | Matthew Crowley
Dusk, twilight, hazy sunsets.
Time suspended. Half dark, half light - with the brightness slowly ebbing away to make room for nightfall.
This moment sometimes gives you a tinge of nostalgia and loneliness. But inhale. You breathe and your lungs expand, and for some unknown reason you suddenly feel that everything is going to be alright. You just know it. You pause. Look up at the skyline and smile. You think quietly, “Aah, life is lovely.” And then you turn your back, continue walking down the crowded streets.
One of the very few things I love about the city that I can never experience in an island life, no matter how much I prefer the latter.
"The album should be listened to as it was the day it came out. That’s my problem with the record. I used to like to listen to it. And I don’t anymore, because of that. To me, if you listen to it without thinking of Kurt dying, you might get the original intention of the record. Like my kids. They know I was in Nirvana. They know Kurt was killed. I haven’t told them that he killed himself. They’re four and seven years old. So when they listen to In Utero, they’ll have that fresh perspective – the original intention of the album, as a first-time listener.” - Dave Grohl on how one should listen to In Utero.
Magnetic Field Lines Galore
The illustration maps the magnetic field lines emanating from the Sun and their interactions superimposed on an extreme ultraviolet image from SDO (Oct. 20, 2010). As one can see, the field lines are most dense around active regions, but they also link to other magnetically active areas across the Sun.
When the Rolling Stones were organizing their 50th anniversary celebrations, Mick Jagger approached his friend, contemporary artist Walton Ford to design a logo. The band loved the image, but some fans were less than pleased.
