Catalogue of Ancient Egyptian Demons
Come explore a sample of the many supernatural creatures that helped Ancient Egyptians cope with stresses, afflictions, and ailments of everyday life. While their gods are well-known, these composite creatures were usually left unnamed and do not appear in our lists and encyclopedias. Yet anybody, from an elite pharaoh such as Tutankhamun to a poor small child, could appeal for help and protection from these beings. Many of them resemble our own mythical creatures, gremlins, gnomes, daemons and similar.

Founded in 1978, Renaissance Winery is known to collectors, connoisseurs and wine-lovers the world over, for wines that are pure expressions of terroir and their distinctive style.

This Sierra Foothills vineyard is organically cultivated. Elevations range from 1,700 to 2,300 feet.

There's nowhere else in California - probably in the entire US - that has a library of aged wine with the scope and depth of inventory that Renaissance Winery possesses.

I went on vacation with just one child. Here’s why it’s going to become a tradition. - The Washington Post
Nathan doesn’t brag about the trip like it was the greatest vacation. But something did shift in our relationship. Each of us occasionally brings up a tenting failure in Indiana, a roller coaster in Virginia or that turtle shimmying across the road in North Carolina, and we smile, laugh or shake our heads. These are a few of the many moments that at the time seemed rather simple, maybe even forgettable. But how often we are mistaken. Something tells me these little imprints will age well, and in time they will illuminate a colorful patchwork quilt of memories. What an enduring gift for both of us.

▶︎ Hathenter Ouija | Hathenter
summoned by the power of the Ouija. the 4 foundation guitarists asked a question (which has since been forgotten), put their hands on their guitars, (like hands on the planchette), and surrendered. no conscious musical choices were allowed, guided in duration by the serotonin blue lamp. the guitars were mixed in mono to eliminate any individual personality shreds.
the recording was then sent to Yosh, she channeled conversations onto it, next to Christian (chfs), he added earthen tones through his own obscure vibrational methods. we had need of one more element, the soloist. our call was answered by kevin hufnagel who wrote and performed the solo titled "The Bombing of Luna".

"As for the ultimate fate of the site, I'll have more to say about that soon. Delicious has over a billion bookmarks and is a fascinating piece of web history. Even Yahoo, for whom mismanagement is usually effortless, had to work hard to keep Delicious down. I bought it in part so it wouldn’t disappear from the web.

This is the fifth time Delicious has been sold. Founded in 2003, the site received funding from Union Square Ventures in 2005, and sold to Yahoo later that year for somewhere between $15-$30M.

In December of 2010, Yahoo announced it was ‘sunsetting’ Delicious, an adventure I wrote about at length. The site was sold to the YouTube founders in 2011. They subsequently sold it to Science, Inc. in 2014. Science sold it to Delicious Media in 2016, and last month Delicious Media sold it to me.

Do not attempt to compete with Pinboard.
