This is a real panda
China has this “panda diplomacy” and this one will be sent to Japan as an friendship envoy. For the safety reason he sits as a passenger with his feeder, not in a cage. Fastening the seat belt, wearing a diaper, eating bamboos

this makes me really happy

Typical pandering.

Just one example of the gorgeous stained glass / painted glass work of Herefordshire artist and illustrator Tamsin Abbott. Tamsin’s husband is also a talented artisan, working masterfully with wood. He runs chair-making courses. Tamsin is one of the Sisterhood of Ruralists, along with Hannah Willow, Catherine Hyde and Jackie Morris.

mais où sont les #bantz d’antans

"And novelty was something completely ordinary in the comedy of the ancient comic writers, according to the comic power of each of the. And even when there weren’t *images*, similes, etc., the banter was always more substantial, more corporeal, with more things in it than the modern kind."

Zibaldone 41 

Leopardi casts ancient v modern debate in mould of BBC v ITV World Cup punditry pieces.

Anyone wants to go into the original Italian and dig out the word, feel free and send the answer on an SAE to Diasyrmus, The Last Ditch, Golganooza.

(The Leopardi is p fascinating, esp after reading the ur-romanticism of Novalis. As is said in the introduction, he wrestles somewhat with the post-Imperial phase of Romanticism, so that a conventional Romantic proposition will be stated, worried over, before a secondary, more developed set of observations will be made, like the secondary natures of opinion and habits, still being nature (he worries about this), or that ‘bare’ nature itself is a dangerous and misleading artistic light, and ‘pathetic’ art is dangerously limiting.

It’s an urbane, discursive romanticism.

But fuck me it’s long. A book to buy and annotate at will rather than get out of the library….

"I’m going back home. That’s what I’m gonna do. / You did better than me than I did by you."

"Then way way up in Heaven, for whatever it was worth / God thought he’d throw a party; thought he’d call it Planet Earth."

Biggest rhyming couplet quality fall-off in rock history.

In one of the sermons of Hugh of St Victor (C12th), we read that “even though the ape is a most vile, filthy, and detestable animal, the clerics like to keep it in their houses and to display it in their windows, so as to impress the passing rabble with the glory of their possessions.”
