The Balts by Marija Gimbutas

"This is a fascinating study of the ancient peoples that lived in the Baltic Sea area. The book has hundreds of drawings and photos of various archeological finds, all of which are extensively discussed. The author, a Lithuanian by birth, is world famous for her ground-breaking studies on the origin of the Indo-Europeans, and especially for her unique theory of a Goddess-centered Old European culture."

New purpose of this blog.

Instead of just posting albums 90% of which you can relatively find easily elsewhere on the internet, the new primary purpose of this blog will be to provide predominately literature that I find interesting, useful, curious, correct, beautiful, or any other number of things. Music will still be posted, however that will not be the main feature. Also as has happened over the last few months anyways, posts will be less frequent.

Harrison Bergeron by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. (1961)

"THE YEAR WAS 2081, and everybody was finally equal. They weren't only equal before God and the law. They were equal every which way. Nobody was smarter than anybody else. Nobody was better looking than anybody else. Nobody was stronger or quicker than anybody else. All this equality was due to the 211th, 212th, and 213th Amendments to the Constitution, and to the unceasing vigilance of agents of the United States Handicapper General."

The Pedestrian by Ray Bradbury (1951)
