Manutius leaves the meter running (1564).
Detail from the section discussing meter (Book IIII) of Aldus Pius Manutius’ Latin grammar entitled Aldi Manutii pii Romani grammaticarum institutionum libri IIII (Venice: Aldus [Paulus Manutius], 1564). First printed in 1501 (Venice, Aldus), this book saw many editions and continued to be printed into the 17th century.

I think that as good as the Dirty Three are, I prefer the side projects of its members to the group’s work together. Though I’m especially partial to Mick Turner’s pastoral guitar sketches, I think this release by Warren Ellis—to my knowledge, the only thing he has released under his own name—is a very worthwhile trio of pieces for solo violin. Here, the initial loop gives way to layers of rueful melody, finally coalescing in a sound pool suspended in space.

I love this book, much of it devoted to the walls in the houses of Goethe and Schiller. Stumbled upon in a library, now have my own. Palimpsestual wallpapers, each layer a witness to life lived. Fragments, though.

The longer I live, the more irked I am to see man… [ who ] does the very opposite of what he wants, and then, because the undertaking as a whole is ruined, dabbles wretchedly in details.
