Luke and I were looking at Hieronymus Bosch’s painting The Garden of Earthly Delights and discovered, much to our amusement, music written upon the posterior of one of the many tortured denizens of the rightmost panel of the painting which is intended to represent Hell. I decided to transcribe it into modern notation, assuming the second line of the staff is C, as is common for chants of this era.
so yes this is LITERALLY the 600-years-old butt song from hell
Vecchio led the Jessicii — one of whom decided to be called “Jane” to make it easier — to an inflatable Twister mat at the center of the after-hours room. He set down his Corona Light and leaped onto the bouncy cushion, making a few flips and pointing to a friend before sitting down in the middle of it and checking his phone.
“The Walt Disney Company reported this week that it’s taking in more than a billion dollars a month from its theme parks, for more than $600 million in profits for the first three months of the company’s current fiscal year. Disney reported record attendance at Walt Disney World, Tokyo Disney and Hong Kong Disneyland, offsetting attendance dips at Disneyland and Disneyland Paris.”—
The actress… cites data showing that there are three male characters for every speaking female in family-rated films: “We are in effect enculturating kids from the very beginning to see women and girls as not taking up half of the space.”
Her ideas are simple: explicitly set gender roles for…
SUPER MARIO BROS. for the Nintendo Entertainment System features the familiar Mario character in a whole new adventure so loaded with surprises and discoveries that it could take months to experience them all. In this game, Mario attempts to rescue Princess Toadstool, daughter of the Mushroom King, from imprisonment at the hands of the Koopa, a tribe of turtles famous for their black magic. The Koopa have cast an evil spell over the Mushroom People, a spell which only Princess Toadstool can break.
Mario’s quest to save the princess is long and arduous — for him. For the game player, it’s sheer delight, likely accompanied with a worn-out finger or two. We had the feeling that we had barely touched the surface of this game after playing for hours, because each trip through the same region seemed to reveal new secrets of the game. Mario walks, runs, swims, and jumps his way through various worlds of the Mushroom Kingdom, avoiding the Koopa Troopa and other nasty creatures. There are countless ways that he can discover mushrooms that were made invisible by the Koopa turtles, and running into them can be a rewarding experience. These formerly invisible mushrooms can turn him into Super Mario, Fiery Mario, or Invincible Mario, at least until he bumps into a bad guy again. There are coins to collect, too — a whole shower of them in one spot we found. They’re good for points, and a hundred of them earns you an extra Mario.
SUPER MARIO BROS. belongs in that special hall of fame reserved for truly addictive action games, the kind that keep you from being on time for supper. The graphics are cute and comical, the music lively, but it’s the great depth of play action that keeps you playing again and again. No owner of the Nintendo Entertainment System should be without this game — it’s a must! (Solo or 2-player alternating; Pause.)
Recommended. (MSR $29.95)

Recently, Time Washington Bureau Chief Michael Scherer received a phone call from an apparently bright and engaging woman asking him if he wanted a deal on his health insurance. But he soon got the feeling something wasn’t quite right.
After asking the telemarketer point blank if she was a real person or a computer-operated robot, she chuckled charmingly and insisted she was real. Looking to press the issue, Scherer asked her a series of questions, which she promptly failed. Such as, “What vegetable is found in tomato soup?” To which she responded by saying she didn’t understand the question. When asked what day of the week it was yesterday, she complained of a bad connection (ah, the oldest trick in the book)..
