Happy Birthday, Chuck D

Is it rude to call Charles Darwin Chuck D? I mean, it might revamp his image a bit… In the meanwhile, check out The Questionable Authority. Some grad students actually have good ideas and expertise for blogging.

A good year for archaeology

And to think, we’re only 6 weeks into it and an Egyptian and Macedonian tomb have come to light.

I kind of wished I had taken some of the archaeology classes at MIT — they did some cool materials analysis stuff and it’s pretty technical as historical professions go. But I don’t think I could get over my fear of mummies. They’re just so… creepy.

On a related note, I was pretty underwhelmed by the DeYoung’s special exhibit on Hatshepsut. The upcoming Frank Lloyd Wright thing could be interesting though, and I’m definitely looking forward to the Jasper Johns retrospective.
