"The first five Beastie LPs are all very fine, very different works, but any Greatest Albums list that omits Paul’s Boutique isn’t worth reading…As a whole, the album feels like the image made by the pieces of a hundred different puzzles cast into the air, landing to form an image more beautiful than any single one.”

Happy 25th Anniversary, Paul’s Boutique.

"They found that when one chills liquid helium below the lambda point—2.17 K—the boiling liquid falls suddenly, eerily still, and it takes on bizarre properties. The individual helium atoms blur into one another and become a single “superatom”, also known as a partial Bose-Einstein Condensation. This is a demonstration of Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle, which states that the more precisely the momentum of a particle is determined, the less precisely its position can be known. Since particles below the lambda point have almost no movement, their momentums are almost entirely “known,” therefore by necessity their positions become so inexact that they begin to overlap one another. In this situation atoms stop behaving like discrete things and become ambiguous smears of quantum probabilities."

"If you use a computer or a synthesizer, it just gives you a sine wave. It gives you one pure tone, one pure sine wave. If you hit a note on a piano, it has every other note in the piano in that note at some volume."

pwf and Dinama are rescuing the Lithuanian Folk Songs’ festival — making plastic covers for movable beam lights. During the very last weekend.

This involves cutting many plastic sheets using a manual router, as all the places that could have laser-cut them have been closed. It has been faster this way, too.

The last pictures show a finished little greenhouse and its inhabitant.
