Random Mesh

As if my random Hollywood articles posting wasn't enough, here's another post of some random articles that I thought were interesting and yet I don't have enough time to write about them. Far be it for me to deprive you of them, though.

"Nepotism? I'm all for it." Giles Martin, son of George Martin, talks to the Guardian about compiling a new Beatles LP.

"Ancient Crash, Epic Wave." Scientists debate whether or not it's possible that an asteroid hitting the Earth caused an ancient tsunami that would explain sediment deposits in enormous chevrons in Madagascar.

"No one better captured the pity of war." A British army chief maintains that Wilfred Owen's poetry, which chronicled the horror of life and death on the Western Front, speaks to soldiers serving today.

"Hunters and collectors." The race is on to digitize the world's literature.

"The Name of the Genre: Philosophy Meets Mystery." A discussion of Umberto Eco's In the Name of the Rose and other philosophical mysteries from the Chronicle of Higher Education.
