The USC archives just tweeted the top photo. I’m pretty sure the bottom photo is the modern vantage point, as screengrabbed from Apple Maps.

SIR JARLSBERG - Teach Thee How to Curtsy (Wreckroom)

This something that the Top Secret Awl Music Algorithm* spit up yesterday and it’s, well, I don’t know what it is but it’s fantastic.

*It’s not really an algorithm.

Look at this insane photo I stumbled across on Flickr. It’s by Armando Sueños and it’s from that day the LA River caught on fire.

"Notes"

I just found a Word doc on my computer entitled “Notes” and dated August 2007. These are the entire contents of that doc:

Web Channels

Hey Tumblr! I made something for you:

printandwire.tv

I don’t entirely know what it is. I mean, I do —it’s a streaming channel that pulls the latest videos from 5 newspapers and 2 wire services. But I don’t know if anybody wants this sort of thing. It’s meant for cord-cutters. It’s an exercise in trying to make YouTube videos more presentable. It’s a little buggy, and I’m looking to you, YOU, the brilliant minds of Tumblr, to tell me why it sucks or is uninteresting to you.

I also made you a science one:

smrt.tv

So if you’d follow one or both of these, and maybe drop me a line about what you think would make these actually useful to you, I will love each and every one of you who does.

Be aware that the news one updates like 40 times a day. So if it clogs your dashboard and you hate that, please let me know that as well!
