The SomeDaily – 2013-08-15

For all the time I’ve spent in Bristol, I’ve wondered how the King (Clothing) Manufacturing Co. stayed in business. The New York Times tells us how. It’s crazy! And it’s the happiest story I’ve read all day.

Chambre 666: Wim Wenders asked a few directors the question, “Is cinema a language about to get lost, an art about to die?” and filmed their responses in a Cannes hotel room in 1982. Starring Jean-Luc Godard and his cigarette, barefoot Werner Herzog, and a tree outside the Paris airport.

“We all know that money is short. This is 1982.”

Here’s some Erik Satie. Now go to bed.

A not-every-daily feature to help keep track of the days…

New Orleans City Council prepares to discuss a report on the city’s “soundscape” and recent bizarre enforcement of sound ordinances on places like Frenchmen Street. Suggests requiring permits for street musicians.

Oh, and the powers that be are trying to do away with go-cups.

If you haven’t already seen this (and it’s been linked about everywhere by now), Todd Andrlik has compiled the 1776 ages of all your favorite American Revolutionaries at his excellent site Journal of the American Revolution.

And, returning to the dirty south, another article in the same Web journal specs out a meal in Bernardo de Galvéz’s New Orleans (complete with recipes).

Onward and upward.
