Another giveaway contest is up over at the Steampunk Librarian. Go and see!

But first: the latest news on Vincent van Gogh suggests that perhaps he did not die by suicide, but was instead shot by some teenagers. Sounds very modern, doesn’t it? (Also, if this turns out to be the case, that means that last season’s episode of Doctor Who is all kinds of messed up. Anyway.)

I have decided that if America gets too carried away, I will aim to move to Brazil and become part of Inhotim, a contemporary arts park just getting started. It looks gorgeous and escapist!

More pragmatically, I’m also impressed by efforts in Seattle to create  an energy self-sufficient building, and hope it’s the first of many innovations in the worlds of energy and architecture.
