Entropic Words from Neilathotep

Tuesday, June 17, 2008


I just got back from a relatively short vacation to Boston (5 days). I will get pictures online and post some here, but in the interim I feel like mentioning a few highlights:

1) The Mapparium at the Christian Science headquarters – 3 story glass globe of the world as it was in the 1930s. You stand inside it. It is strange but oh so cool:

2) The Boston Athenaeum – a private library/art collection in boston, which my friend just happened to be a member of Neat things include Benjamin Franklins set of French Encyclopedias, George Washington’s personal library, and a stair case that seems to go down to the center of the eart:

3) Roller Derby – I went to the finals of the Boston Derby Dames all-girl, flat-track roller derby. This was way more fun that it should have been and now that I know that we have something of this sort in the bay area, I am going to try to attend.

4) Rock Band – good way to warm up to watch metalocypse. So what if I got a small blister from rocking out on the drums?
