Surf Session 002

It is Sunday morning, August 7th, 2022 @ 12:42 AM CST. Once again I am at work. Between my duties I’ve been working on building accounts I follow on Twitter… that was until my Twitter account was suspended. Why was it suspended. I said in a tweet that “I wish these foldables would die”. This statement was referring to the folding phones. Why did I say that. I don’t care for the trend. Anyway, Twitter suspended my account, saying that I can’t make threats or wish harm to people. All I want to know is when did cellphones become people? It’s dumb. Twitter needs to fix it’s bots. Too many people are getting their accounts suspended over stupid things.

So it has been awhile since I had a surf session where I just chill out and explore the internet, and I’m going to spend the rest of my shift tonight doing just that.

As with the last post in this blog series, and with each post in this series, I will provide links below to random things I come across on the internet. Primarily these links are collected for my own use, but you may find something interesting yourself. Just a fun fact… I started this blog series called Surf Sessions on Sunday morning, May 29th, 2022 @ 2:20 AM CST. I don’t always explore these links for long periods of time when I am gathering them. My primary objective is to provide links to content I think you may be interested in, but there is also personal interest involved of course. I do hope you find something I listed to be useful or interesting.

This morning, I’m going to go hit up one of my favorite websites for some content to share with you. That website is Open Culture.

Watch the Sinking of the Lusitania Animated in Real Time (1915) – August 5th, 2022 – Excerpt: If you are a graduate of a U.S. school system, the words “Remember the Lusitania” may be as vaguely familiar to you as “Remember the Alamo.” And you may be just as fuzzy about the details. We learn roughly that the sinking of the British luxury liner was an act of German aggression that moved the U.S. to enter World War I. That lesson is largely the result of a propaganda effort launched at the time to inflame anti-German sentiments and push the U.S. out of isolationism. But it would take almost two years after the attack before the country entered the war. The Lusitania did not change President Woodrow Wilson’s position. While the “sinking of the Lusitania was a crucial moment in helping to sway the American public in support of the Allied cause,” it was only kept in the public eye by those who wanted the U.S. in the war. – https://www.openculture.com/2022/08/watch-the-sinking-of-the-lusitania-animated-in-real-time-1915.html

The Evolution of Music: 40,000 Years of Music History Covered in 8 Minutes – August 3rd, 2022 – Excerpt: “We’re drowning in music,” says Michael Spitzer, professor of music at the University of Liverpool. “If you were born in Beethoven’s time, you’d be lucky if you heard a symphony twice in your lifetime, whereas today, it’s as accessible as running water.” We shouldn’t take music, or running water, for granted, and the comparison should give us pause: do we need music –- for example, nearly any recording of any Beethoven symphony we can think of -– to flow out of the tap on demand? What does it cost us? Might there be a middle way between hearing Beethoven whenever and hearing Beethoven almost never? – https://www.openculture.com/2022/08/the-evolution-of-music-40000-years-of-music-history-covered-in-8-minutes.html

The Inventive Artwork of Pink Floyd’s Syd Barrett – August 1st, 2022 – Excerpt: We’ve had fun at the expense of the multi-hyphenate: i.e. “I’m an actor-slash-drummer-slash-makeup-artist-slash-brand-ambassador,” etc…. And, fair enough. Few people are good enough at their one job to reasonably excel at two or three, right? But then again, we live in the kind of hyperspecialized world Henry Ford could only dream of, and consider ourselves highly favored if we’re allowed to be just the one thing long enough to retire and do nothing. – https://www.openculture.com/2022/08/the-inventive-artwork-of-pink-floyds-syd-barrett.html

Visit Great Cities in the 1920s in Restored Color Film: New York City, London, Berlin, Paris, Venice & More – July 28th, 2022 – Excerpt: Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris stars Owen Wilson as a Hollywood screenwriter on vacation in the French capital. Alas, the City of Lights as it is in the twenty-first century doesn’t satisfy him. When he walks his streets he thinks only of the nineteen-twenties, when a traveler in Paris could easily cross paths with the likes of Paul Gauguin, Henri Matisse, and Edgar Degas — as well as expatriates from Pablo Picasso and Djuna Barnes to F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway. Or so he imagines, at any rate, and so he goes on to experience when he finds himself transported back in time to the city of the “Lost Generation” at each stroke of midnight. – https://www.openculture.com/2022/07/visit-great-cities-in-the-1920s-in-restored-color-film.html

The Book of St Albans, One of the Finest Medieval Manuscripts, Gets Digitized and Put Online – July 26th, 2022 – Excerpt: This past month, on the eve of the June 22nd feast of St Alban, the library of Trinity College Dublin announced that it had digitized the “13th century masterpiece” the Book of St Alban, a richly illustrated manuscript that “features 54 individual works of medieval art and has fascinated readers across the centuries, from royalty to renaissance scholars.” – https://www.openculture.com/2022/07/the-book-of-st-albans-one-of-the-finest-medieval-manuscripts-gets-digitized-and-put-online.html

Behold a Book of Color Shades Depicted with Feathers (Circa 1915) – July 25th, 2022 – Excerpt: Perhaps the 143 colors showcased in The Bayer Company’s early 20th-century sample book, Shades on Feathers, could be collected in the field, but it would involve a lot of travel and patience, and the stalking of several endangered if not downright extinct avian species. – https://www.openculture.com/2022/07/behold-a-book-of-color-shades-depicted-with-feathers-circa-1915.html

The First Surviving Photograph of the Moon (1840) – July 21st, 2022 – Excerpt: Everyone has been agog over the first photos from the James Webb telescope, and for good reason. “These images,” Rivka Galchin writes at The New Yorker, “carry news about the early universe, the birth and death of stars, the collision of galaxies, and the atmosphere of exoplanets.” They’re also “very, very pretty,” she writes, comparing them to Vermeer. – https://www.openculture.com/2022/07/the-first-surviving-photograph-of-the-moon-1840.html

Never-Seen Vincent Van Gogh Self-Portrait Discovered Behind an Earlier Painting – July 18th, 2022 – Excerpt: The name of Vincent Van Gogh is one of the very best known in the history of painting, and indeed the history of art. But that doesn’t mean the man himself enjoyed any success in his short lifetime. Though he was convinced that he was creating “the art of the future,” and seemingly right to believe it, the buyers of nineteenth-century European art didn’t see it quite that way. Consequently impoverished, Van Gogh had to resort to unconventional strategies to maintain his artistic productivity. Instead of professional models, for example, he hired peasants and people from the streets. And when he couldn’t paint them, he painted himself. – https://www.openculture.com/2022/07/a-lost-van-gogh-self-portrait-has-been-rediscovered-hidden-for-more-than-a-century-on-the-back-of-another-painting.html

The Homes of 2020 Imagined in 1989: Wireless Audio Systems, Smart Heating, Windows That Turn Into TVs & More – July 14th, 2022 – Excerpt: Many trends in architecture and home design have come and gone over the past thirty years, and some have not spread as far as they might have. The green architectural movement in much of Asia, for example, in which skyscrapers practically drip with growing things, hasn’t caught on in congested cities in the West, and perhaps it never will. Granted, few urban areas have such concerns about air quality as cities in China where green buildings have taken hold recently — where 2/3rds of the population is slated to live in cities by 2050; and where a massive population boom in the last twenty years has required four to five million new buildings. But even if we don’t live in a burgeoning city with an urgent mandate to reduce carbon emissions for basic public health, it’s time for brand-new building standards everywhere. – https://www.openculture.com/2022/07/the-homes-of-2020-imagined-in-1989.html

The First Photographs Taken by the Webb Telescope: See Faraway Galaxies & Nebulae in Unprecedented Detail – July 13th, 2022 – Excerpt: Late last year we featured the amazing engineering of the James Webb Space Telescope, which is now the largest optical telescope in space. Capable of registering phenomena older, more distant, and further off the visible spectrum than any previous device, it will no doubt show us a great many things we’ve never seen before. In fact, it’s already begun: earlier this week, NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center released the first photographs taken through the Webb telescope, which “represent the first wave of full-color scientific images and spectra the observatory has gathered, and the official beginning of Webb’s general science operations.” – https://www.openculture.com/2022/07/the-first-photographs-taken-through-the-webb-telescope.html

Listen to Earth.fm, a Free Archive of Natural Soundscapes That Can Re-Connect You with Nature & Improve Your Wellbeing – July 12th, 2022 – Excerpt: The study of acoustic ecology doesn’t get much mainstream attention. But if you’ve been a reader of Open Culture, you’ve likely come across a post about preserving natural sounds by streaming recordings of the world’s many environments. These projects all, in one way or another, contribute to goals articulated by Canadian composer and writer R. Murray Schafer, the “self-declared father” of acoustic ecology, which involves the study, conservation, and appreciation of environmental sound. – https://www.openculture.com/2022/07/earth-fm.html

Watch the Titanic Sink in This Real-Time 3D Animation – July 11th, 2022 – Excerpt: Knowing how the story ends puts the public in the position of helpless bystander, especially at those critical junctures when someone in a position of authority exercised poor judgment, resulting in a larger loss of life. – https://www.openculture.com/2022/07/watch-the-titanic-sink-in-this-real-time-3d-animation.html

The Earliest Known Footage of New Orleans Discovered: See a Mardi Gras Parade in 1898 – July 7th, 2022 – July 7th, 2022 – “America has only three great cities: New York, San Francisco, and New Orleans. Everywhere else is Cleveland.” This quotation has been repeated for decades — not least, unsurprisingly, in New Orleans. I saw and heard it often on my last trip there, and though attributions varied, most credited the remark to either Mark Twain or Tennessee Williams. According to Quote Investigator, no historical evidence points to either man as the line’s originator, though “the notion that only three cities in the U.S. were commendable or distinctive has a very long history.” – https://www.openculture.com/2022/07/the-earliest-known-footage-of-new-orleans-discovered-see-a-mardi-gras-parade-in-1898.html

Ok it is now 2:40 AM CST, so I’ve just spent about 2 hours gathering some interesting links. I hope you found something useful here. If you didn’t, go back and check the links again, and look for the related content links on those posts. I’m sure you can find some good reading and exploring. I’m going to close this blog post down and go find something else to do for awhile. I will be back soon with another Surf Session for you.

Amazon Kindle App & Z Fold: Quick View & 4 Features To Enable For Enhanced Reading – [link]

I’ve got my eye on the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 a lot lately, and I’ve been looking for reasons to justify buying one. I like to read, but I don’t always like to carry my Amazon Kindle. I wondered how the Amazon Kindle app would look on the Fold 4 phone. This video gives a good look at how it would appear, although it’s shown on the Fold 3. I think I would like it if I decide to purchase the Fold 4. So if you are wondering how your Amazon Kindle app books would look on these fold phones, give the video a watch. – Featured on Tuesday, September 20th, 2022 @ 2:28 AM CST.

NOTICES:

2022-08-05-FRI @ 9:05 PM CST – A big focus for me this month in August 2022 is to start listing accounts I follow on Twitter. You will see a lot of these pages being posted to the blog over the course of this month.

2022-08-01-MON @ 12:06 AM CST – This week, probably starting tomorrow on Tuesday, August 2nd, 2022, I’m planning on populating some resources and information from some of my other sites into the 3 column panel of my website below. I’m also considering to add a new section into the template below for temporary promotions of interesting things I find on the internet. UPDATE – Promotions has been added. – UPDATE – I still have to move content from other sites.

2022-08-01-MON @ 12:00 AM CST – I’ve got several other .com websites that I have not been doing a lot of updates to lately, and for quite awhile. I’ve already set one of them to redirect here to ddavidd.com, and I’m considering to do the same with several more of them. Doing this will allow me to redirect funds to possibly set up a new store website using Woocommerce on Wordpress, rather than using 3rd party storefronts like Storenvy, and Gumroad to sell my craft products and my ebooks. This will be a huge move with a lot of work required if I choose to make this happen. Stay tuned for updates.

DDAVIDD.com has recently been relaunched on Wednesday, April 13th, 2022 with a new theme I designed. You may notice some things moved, or removed as needed over the coming weeks as I adjust to this new layout and getting my content organized. Update: Wednesday, May 11th, 2022 – Work is still going on with setting up my website here with the new look and upcoming content. You can check my UPDATES page to see the latest updates as they happen. Update: Monday, August 1st, 2022 – Most work has been done to get this website set up with the new theme now. Going forward I just have some clean-up of content to do, and decisions on what content to place where within my new template. Hopefully by the end of 2022, I will have everything running smoothly, and this notification can finally be removed from the site.
