Last year the registrars at the Indianapolis Museum of Art were very eager to get access to two ledgers of loans in and out for exhibition that dated from 1910 to 1920. Unfortunately, the condition of the ledgers was cause for some concern, as the binding had been so strained that the spine had come completely off of one. Repeated use would almost definitely lead to the other spine falling off, and potentially to additional deterioration of the pages and binding.
For this reason it was decided that preservation digitization would be essential, and allow registrars unlimited and close-up access to the ledgers at any and all times–through digital images of each page.
Once again, the Photography Department let us borrow one of their studio spaces, equipment, and set-up to completely photograph both 200+ page ledgers. Though the process was a bit tedious, requiring each page to be turned and set before photographing, the result has been increased access to and the continued preservation of these ledgers packed full of important loan information!
AU where Bitty is a food blogger/vlogger (okay so it’s not that au yet). He’s all about pies, and sugary, chocolatey, not-actually-that-good-for you food which tastes amazing. But he’s also into following trends and health food is the next big one. Superfoods, and vegan diets and all that stuff (turning slightly au now).
So he starts mixing in some more health focused recipes alongside his usual stuff. But it’s still based around the sugary, chocolatey, not-actually-that-good-for-you stuff. So it’s vegan chocolate cakes with ingredient substitutions that actually are mouth-wateringly good, and faux fruit mince pies with nuts, and just, really tasty ‘dessert’ and ‘treat’ type foods that are, like, healthy.
So while that’s going on, Georgia assistant GM for The Falconers, and their nutritionist - let’s call her Martha - are at the end of their tether with hockey players who rue their meals plans and dietary restrictions. They’re basically whiny and Georgia and Martha did not sign up for this. So Martha, whose been following Bitty’s vlog for almost a year now, suggests that Georgia contacts him to see if he’s willing to partner with Martha and actually figure out some recipes that are not going to make the team go crazy from carb overload and sugar withdrawal.
So that’s the premise. But this is really a Jack/Bitty story. So…
Bitty is flustered because he played hockey in college and he still keeps up with it and he really appreciates how The Falconers are progressing as a team. And Jack Zimmermann, first out athlete in the NHL, is on that team so Bitty has a soft spot for him the team. So after asking for some time to think it over, and then using that time to panic and swear and ring up his parents, he accepts the offer.
Phantogram have released their third album. It’s called, Three.
With songs that explore how we may find calm amongst chaos, the duo have aptly selected Ben Zank to collaborate on a special Tumblr IRL. As you listen to the album, scroll through the photography, which will be rolling out all week right here.
Oh, and there’s a whole thing in Boulder too, thanks to our friends at Ice Breakers Mints. The band have planned a super intimate, one-of-a-kind performance to pair with the visuals that Ben created.
Our first Tumblr IRL to hit the Mountain Time Zone, and we’re damn proud of it.
I finished my Legend trilogy binge and oh dear. I sobbed my way through the epilogue of Champion. I don’t know how could I ever recover from that. How can I trust Marie Lu after that ending. I want an extended epilogue so bad. Even the Starks couldn’t protect Day and June from all the shit storm they had to go through.
“Nature only wants to please itself. Get others to please it too. Likes to lord it over them. To have its own way. It finds reasons to be unhappy when all the world is shining around it. And love is smiling through all things.”
