Another Monday brings links on art and literature...

Literature: Over 2,000 documents from Hemingway's days in Cuba are now electronically available to researchers, including photos and an epilogue to For Whom the Bell Tolls! Also, the A.V. Club lists "15 Things Kurt Vonnegut Said Better Than Anyone Else Ever Has Or Will," and Terry Teachout has published a beautiful tribute to Rex Stout's Nero Wolfe books. (I'm re-reading many of my Wolfe mysteries before visiting NYC this spring.)

Music: Did you know Brian Eno has a Twitter account? Well, he does, and he posts many of his Oblique Strategies as well as other items of interest.

Also, from the Department of the Obvious, Guitar Hero ticks off musicians. (I point you to XKCD for my views on this matter.)

Stonehenge Theory number 4573: it had great acoustics for prehistoric trance raves!

Art: Smashing Magazine has all sorts of goodies for graphic designers, photographers, and anyone working in the visual arts these days.

Architecture: Well, not really...but architectural clothing is close!

Seriously, I wanted to marry Kurt as a girl. I liked the way he thinks, I do!

I love this:"I urge you to please notice when you are happy, and exclaim or murmur or think at some point, 'If this isn't nice, I don't know what is.'"

It reminds me of my Great Aunt Victoria. We used to spike her punch, turning her fa la juice into FA LA LA juice. This would make her SO HAPPY, so she'd proclaim, "Huuuneee! Aint we havin' a guud time!?!?"

You and I always do this, Jinnet. We always say, "We always have sooooo much fun?!"
