A WINTER PAST DISCONTENT

Work means co-workers that don’t seem to give a flying shite whether or not they get work done until a week before the deadline swings about and they get irritable and end up frantically scrambling about inside the five-by-five fabric coated cube that has become an altar to the Gods of Profitability, Market Reach and the whole rest of the damned Pantheon Corporatus. Mars only ever demanded the blood of your enemies. He never sat you down and talked about KPIs and ROIs.

Happy Summer Vacation from Accidental Chinese Hipsters and Frankie Roberts in Athens, who sent in this instructional pic. I’m convinced that if Laura Ingalls Wilder were on a modern day European adventure with her best friend they’d be wearing these bonnets and matching dollar store crocs, and possibly some improvised flannel bibs.

[3/8] Objects - The Bayeux Tapestry

The Bayeux Tapestry is an embroidered cloth—not an actual tapestry, which is instead woven—nearly 70 metres (230 ft) long, which depicts the events leading up to the Norman conquest of England concerning William, Duke of Normandy, and Harold, Earl of Wessex, later King of England, and culminating in the Battle of Hastings.

The tapestry consists of some fifty scenes with Latin tituli (captions), embroidered on linen with coloured woollen yarns. It is likely that it was commissioned by Bishop Odo, William’s half-brother, and made in England—not Bayeux—in the 1070s. In 1729 the hanging was rediscovered by scholars at a time when it was being displayed annually in Bayeux Cathedral. The tapestry is now exhibited at Musée de la Tapisserie de Bayeux in Bayeux, Normandy, France. [x]
