    Revisting an old passion ... At university, I immersed myself in the nature, the perception and, above all, the linguistics of time (of which the tense, mode and aspect system of any given language is an expression). M.

    Here's just something with a bit of grim humour to it ... We have to get back to "normal" once more, i.e. the last term will start tomorrow, amidst rising numbers and accumulating risks through irresponsible political decisions and general sloppiness - I'm really "looking forward to it". But...

    Sort of a follow-up from day 379 ... A lot is applicable for any of our own challenges (starting in earnest at 8:00 or so ... and for those with stamina: 9:00!). M. P.S. I have the strange feeling that I've already used this video recently - but I can't find it, so ...

    This is just awesome ... https://www.reutersagency.com/en/coverage/want-to-study-on-the-sand-a-day-at-the-spanish-beachside-classroom/ I don't have access to any beach, but I'll certainly take a page out of that book if opportunity presents itself ... N.B. I'm not sure how long this content...

    In the wake of the recent "compact film camera" discussion, I remembered George (NegativeFeedback on YouTube): He's a true film nerd and knows his stuff; his dry style is complemented by lots of tongue-in-cheek stuff. This one's spot on, too. M.

    The day's journey has needed more energy than I anticipated - so I think I'll leave it to you to fill the void (I'll join in tomorrow). M.

    Even though it may seem a bit hard to believe after my previous post today, this is actually tongue-in-cheek (most people don't remember the Beatles ever did such things): A bloody great way of venting one's anguish and anger. M.

    A follow-up to yesterday's video tip: N.B. Sean Tucker and Jamie Windsor will be featured (among a few others) quite frequently in the near future - they add depth of thought, concept and analysis to really solid advice. Should you object to that, just tell me in time. Also note that...

    Zero! And ... Take-off! With this, we start a new era. Share a series of daily shots - for as long as you like. You can start today or join in later - just keep going for an unbroken chain of days and post a shot taken the same day. No other restrictions or obligations apply. The number "367"...

    This is just a short notice to announce a new "rolling" challenge. To give a little background: Last year, we did two consecutive monthly challenges - and then just kept rolling; on March 31, we will complete a full year, and on April 1, we will even tick of the leap year (remember that 2020...

    Two ... The full year secured! 365 days of continued posting completed ... ... once you've posted today, of course ;) However, we're not done yet: 2020 was a leap year, so, to make it whole, we have one more day to go ... And who better to pat us on the back than - the Spin Doctors! M.

    Three ... On the 30th, too; I was looking forward to this ever since I found out ... So, this'll be "two for one" ... First: Second, 303 is three times 101, so ... This is not new, but definitely worth a look (or a recommendation or three)...

    Four ... I saw this the first time last Thursday - this one's for Steve (as well as for the rest of us): Other than that, let's just say that researching the "four elements" for a non-esoterically minded person like me is a real trial ... If you like beatboxing, you might want to research...

    Six ... And here's where it turns a little self-indulgent ... I actually own two(!) of them - one nicely overhauled, one mostly functional, but a tad capricious. Anyhow, it's a really enjoyable camera to shoot with - provided it's not faulty and/or acting up (you can work around most common...

    The self-proclaimed "greatest" poet of the German tongue died on this date in 1832. I think this angle gives away my own take on master Johann Wolfgang von Goethe - he knew his stuff, sure enough, but mainly, he was a great propagandist of his own achievements, and a most jealous suppressor of...

    On this date (following the calendar of the day, of course), in 45 B.C., Julius Caesar won his last victory over the troops of his former alley and fellow triumvir, Pompeius, effectively removing his last serious competitor and establishing himself as the undisputed ruler of the Roman republic...

    A sombre interlude (I hope) with an - even for European history - unusually bleak tale: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siege_of_Monts%C3%A9gur The more surprising bit I found about the story was this, though: I don't know how good your French is, but this is a full apology from ... the...

    On this date, in 1983, a man came to power who, by his unorthodox manner, initiated the end of the state he intended to preserve. 90 years of age isn't a bad age for someone who stared into the barrel of a loaded gun several times - metaphorically and in reality. This also means that...

    I found it really quite intriguing that Barbie (yes, the infamous doll) had its debut on March 9 - a day after International Women's day. However, when I started looking into this, I found it more intriguing than I would have thought. First, I stumbled over this - "as expected", really. But...
