A troubling view of Democracy [00:02:15] | Celebration of Carl Sagan [2:07:50]

"One of the Expedition 39 crew members aboard the International Space Station on March 29 used a 14mm lens on a digital still camera to photograph this pre-winter storm located just off the coast of southwestern Australia. A solar array panel on the orbital outpost is in the left side of the frame."

Ho reader,

I have been doing good work this weekend. I hope you too can find some time to work on what matters to you, to let out what art is within.

To begin, a video on how well (rather, how unwell) modern representative democracy serves the people and the good of the nation. Take from it what you will, but you really ought to read more into such subjects.

From the U.S. Library of Congress, A Celebration of Carl Sagan.

From the youtube channel,

“Librarian of Congress James H. Billington was joined by Emmy Award-winner Seth MacFarlane and Ann Druyan, the longtime collaborator and widow of astrobiologist Carl Sagan, to celebrate the official opening of the Seth MacFarlane Collection of the Carl Sagan and Ann Druyan Archive to the public at the Library of Congress.”

If you want to be good at cooking and being super critical on people’s shortcomings, then the entire season of Gordon Ramsays Ultimate Cookery Course is for you?

I like Gordon, seems like a nice guy who just so happens to act like a jerk in those situations where he deems it necessary to achieve some good related to the operation of a kitchen.

Apollo 11 launch in Ultra Slow Motion 16mm

That’s all for now. I’ve got to get back to the pencil and paper.

Take care,

About Ossington

I often think but seldom share these thoughts. And if the product of my thinking is to affect anything but my own sense of satisfaction, then surely it must be shared. Here you may try to know what I believe to know.
