More Than Just Black…
Adam Elsheimer’s The Flight Into Egypt is considered the first known painting to accurately depict the stars of the night sky and the Milky Way. Can you find Ursa Major?
Interestingly, this painting is said to date from around 1609, yet that means it predates Galileo’s first published telescope observations by a year (Galileo’s Sidereus Nuncius was published in 1610, although he made observations in 1609). Any art or science historians know the full story? 
It’s a beautiful thing to see that science has been influencing art for so long.

Luke and I were looking at Hieronymus Bosch’s painting The Garden of Earthly Delights and discovered, much to our amusement, music written upon the posterior of one of the many tortured denizens of the rightmost panel of the painting which is intended to represent Hell. I decided to transcribe it into modern notation, assuming the second line of the staff is C, as is common for chants of this era.

so yes this is LITERALLY the 600-years-old butt song from hell

500 year old butt comes to musical life!

A friendly reminder that the last Bobby Womack record was great and woefully underrated. We should all hope to be that cool at 68.
