I just got a new iPhone for free even though I ruined my last one by dumping it in someone’s drink on Thanksgiving.
Ah, the power of a mutual love of Virginia Woolf between English majors.
The Genius bar dude’s phone was named “Dalloway” and mine was named “Virginia Woolf” (actually it was Vagina Woolf, but I changed it before I went to get it fixed). And thus a beautiful/beneficial temporary friendship was born.
His body isn’t even cold yet and the New York times has already put out a shameful article declaring Nelson Mandela to be an “icon of peaceful resistance”. News outlets around the Western world are hurrying to publish obituaries that celebrate his electoral victory while…
Rest in Peace Nelson Mandela.

18th c. Skeletal coffin ring
A rare example of an 18th century memento mori skeletal band, dated 1727. A full skeleton, reserved on black enamel, encircles the gold hoop of the ring. Unusually, there is a crown above the skull, signifying death is the master of all, and below the skeletal feet is a tablet engraved with the words memento mori, flanked by symbols of the Passion. The bezel of the ring is in the form of a gold coffin, covered by a faceted crystal, enclosing a skeleton painted in gold on a black ground. To interior of the band are the initials of the deceased, J. B. and the date, 1727.
