It is located at the junction of Thames River and Trout Creek, southwest of Stratford and surrounded by the Township of Perth South. It is in the Perth census division but is independent of Perth County. The town is also known by its nickname, “The Stone Town”, due to the abundance of limestone in the surrounding area, giving rise to a large number of limestone buildings and homes throughout the town. St. Marys Cement, a large cement producer founded in the town, capitalized on this close feedstock, and grew to be a major producer of cement in the province of Ontario. St. Marys is home to the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame.

Naqsh-e Jahan Square - Isfahan, Iran

When Shah Abbas I of the Safavid dynasty moved the capital of Persia to Isfahan in 1598, he decided to completely rebuild the city & poured almost all of the country’s artistic & architectural wealth into it, making it the pinnacle of Safavid Persian art & architecture. This led to the Persian proverb, “Esfahan nesf-e jahan - Isfahan is half the world.” The square became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979.

The square was built between 1598-1629. By building it, Shah Abbas managed to gather the main three components of power in Persia in one place making them easier to control: the power of the clergy represented by the Shah Mosque, the power of the merchants represented by the bazaar, & the power of the monarchy & the Shah himself represented by the Ali Qapu Palace where he lived.

The city has retained much of its former glory with its many beautiful mosques, palaces, bridges, gardens, parks, boulevards, bath houses, minarets, bazaars, & the churches & cathedrals in the historic Armenian quarter.

The Shah Mosque built between 1611-1629 is situated on the south side of the square (1,2,3,4,5,6), the Sheikh Lofollah Mosque built between 1603-1619 on the east side (1,2,3,4,5,6), the Ali Qapu Palace built in 1597 on the west (1), & the Keisaria Gate at the north opens up to the Grand Bazaar.

(on “my friend”) jonghyun: the song that i brought to share with everyone today is a song from the man who composes’ last season. ah …, i’m putting it as if it’s the last season …, but that may happen too? anyway, i mean that it’s the last song for this season. it’s a song called “my friend”. it’s about friendship and, when i wrote it, it made me think about the vibes that you get from streetlamps while sitting at the han river. it’s a song that i wrote with heritage and shin hyun jin. i wanted to make it sound like an acapella but, with my voice alone, it’s hard so there’s some regret there. heritage’s voices are not included in this version but, if it gets released (officially), i plan to ask them for a favor.

for those interested in learning more about heritage, the group jonghyun will collaborating with on his upcoming single for station, we’ve got some information for you! heritage is a five piece vocal group that was formed in 2006. the genre that they’re specificed as is a bit scattered: they’re usually just viewed as a vocal group, but they’ve also been considered as a vocal band, gosepl and mass choir, though there’s only five official members of the group (as stated). they’ve debuted with multiple other korean artists, such as: brown eyed soul, fly to the sky, lee seung hwan, lim jae bum and dynamic duo. famous gagwoman shin bora has also worked with the group before. in the video above, you can see a collaboration that jonghyun did with them during monthly live connection last october: a rearranged performance of “dream girl”.

to add another layer to the collaboration, kang sang tae who plays bass for the mass choir section of the group, was jonghyun’s high school teacher and the band master for a funk band that jonghyun was a member of back then. (source) “한마디 (your voice)”, which jonghyun and heritage composed and wrote the lyrics to together, will be really digitally on friday at midnight kst.


Saga Prefectural Museum

Tei'ichi Takahashi / Daiichi-Kobo Associates + Yoshichika Uchida 1969

Saga, Japan

Bravely optimistic, systemic architecture realised with a logical and rigorous choice of construction methods and materials. In contrast to the hard-edged roughness of the concrete, the design exhibits humane sophistication in the original detailing and beautiful finishings of the interior spaces.

The museum is an uncompromising object in the landscape, designed to be a minimal obstruction in the surrounding park. The centrally located lobby is the only part of the building that sits on the ground, with galleries and supporting spaces located on the upper levels. Four sets of stairs rising from the lobby to the top floor cut the building volume in four parts. The dramatically cantilevered staircases protrude out from all of the facades. The building connects with the adjacent Saga Prefectural Art Museum via a glazed corridor that offers beautiful views to the surrounding park.

Docomomo Japan has chosen the Saga Prefectural Museum on their list of the 100 most notable Modernist buildings in the country.

when asking the heritage members about their thoughts, a member said that she wanted to thank jonghyun and she called him “bling bling jonghyun” and, when it was one of the male member’s turns to speak, he said: “my donsaeng is a fan of you, you gotta give me a sign.” jonghyun got flustered at this and said: “i meant your thoughts on today’s broadcast.” (source: fantaemsie)
