And then he’ll do something even more radical. He’ll make you think you can.
We are super, super excited to share our new website:
Digitized Medieval Manuscripts Maps (DMMmaps)!
There is something genuinely thrilling in browsing the maps, clicking on a semi-unknown digitized library, looking at a random manuscript, and suddenly discovering a miniature, a detail, and illumination that no one has looked at for years and sharing it with your followers.
We want to make to make as many people as possible experience this thrill; and that’s why we created the DMMmaps.
We would love to hear your thoughts about the project! If you spot typos, empty pages, errors, dragons and such, please let us know! Either through the comments on the website, or here, or the contact us page on the website!
Great new website, a “roadmap” to thousands of digitized medieval books. Sufficiently tempting to start your own medieval Tumblr? Happy browsing!

First Animated Hobbit - directed by Gene Deitch, produced by Rembrandt Films (by RembrandtFilms)
In anticipation of Peter Jackson’s 2nd Hobbit film release, Rembrandt Films wants to share the FIRST ANIMATED HOBBIT adaptation by NUDNIK’s creator, Gene Deitch!!!
Here’s the story:
In the early 1960’s, animation producer William L. Snyder (founder of Rembrandt Films) told his director and collaborator, Gene Deitch, that he had purchased the rights to an unknown 1927 children’s novel, THE HOBBIT. In order to hold his option, Snyder had to “produce a full-color motion picture of THE HOBBIT” by a certain date in 1966. So to meet this deadline while he tried to interest the studios in a much bigger motion picture, the very first version of THE HOBBIT was produced by Rembrandt Films and directed by Gene Deitch!

Whilst a student at Cambridge, Byron was irked that university rules banned keeping a dog. With characteristic perversity, he installed a tame bear instead. There being no mention of bears in their statutes, the college authorities had no legal basis to complain.
And that is how you do it.
Is that a Quentin Blake illustration of Lord Byron.
I am pleased.

this egg fucking froze because our fridge is too cold
Why would you keep the eggs on the fridge?
we keep our eggs in the fridge…so they don’t denature? do you not refrigerate your eggs?
Because of the way our eggs are processed and the prevalence of salmonella in american chickens, americans have to fridge their eggs.
Wait, they don’t refrigerate eggs in other countries?
wait what people in other countries dont refrigerate eggs???
wait a second eggs in other countries aren’t refrigerated?????????
MAN this was such a huge shock for me when I came to Britain and there were just eggs all the hell over the shelves in the supermarket and not in the fridge. It still bothers me.
A true story about me, and about Christmas.
Ho Ho Ho.
For God’s sake I’m not a German spy!
