In other news, I played XCOM so much this weekend I started wearing my terrible distance glasses to get the most accurate view of the screen.

Banned Books Week—History Edition

This page was removed from the 13th-century Morgan Picture Bible. Why?

It was owned in the 1600s by Persian ruler Shah Abbas, who, it is suspected, did not approve of this story about a son’s defiance of his father.

This page shows the battle between the armies of traitoroous Absalom and his father King David, and Absalom’s death.

Zoom into the illumination: here.

Banned Books Week celebrates the freedom to read. This week we’re sharing examples of books from cultural history that have been attacked, vilified, or otherwise banned.

Scenes from the Life of Absalom, about 1250, French. J. Paul Getty Museum.

Did a shoot for a book coming out in december about Skid Row. One of the people I got to meet was this man, Blade (modeled after the Wesley Snipes character). He made his outfit out of pieces people had thrown away in the fashion district, he told me he had a samurai sword he’d wear sometimes as well back in his SRO. One day an LAPD car pulled up to him and he thought for sure he would be harassed or arrested but instead they wanted to get a picture with him.

Now for another installment of my seasonal list of stuff I wish I would buy on the internet but won’t so I’ll share it with you guys instead.

The 100 best horror films

I usually don’t like countdown lists like this and the top 10 are pretty unimaginative in ranking but this is actually an incredibly solid list.
