During the Renaissance, cabinet of curiosities came into fashion as a collection of objects that would often defy classification. As a precursor to the modern museum, the cabinet referred to room(s), not actual furniture, of things that piqued the owners interest and would be collected and displayed in an aesthetically pleasing manner. Collectioun of Cunnynge Curioustes is my 21st century interpretation of that idea.
Dear Internet,
Another week, another better living through chemistry. When this gets posted, I’ll be in Lansing presenting on Golden Age: Comics and Graphic Novel Resources in Libraries along with Kristin and Andrew.
My mania has been kicking in when I’ve been at work and leaving it at work isn’t an option, so I carry the work home and I work late at home, then I finally crash. The mania is not necessarily chemical based, but this need to finish all the things.  At some point, everything will finally stabilize.
