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

EDIT: I still can’t believe this took off like it did this is crazy??? Just wanted to let people know that there are indeed errors in the transcription and this is indeed not a very good recording (I threw this together in like 30 minutes at 1 in the morning,) but I’m working with the music department at my college to get the transcription more accurate!

in the meantime enjoy this fantastic choral arrangement by wellmanicuredman i’m in love

This is amazing! Something sounded off… And I think I figured it out.
If you can post your transcribed notation, i’ll try playing this as a continuous piece on my hurdy gurdy rather than as individual notes. Depending on how that goes, i’ll see how it sounds on an organ.

If I open a portal to hell, you owe me $5.00.

We know of only a few examples of heart-shaped Books of Hours, all dating from the 15th or the 16th century. Here is the list of the four presented here:

Biblioteca Oliveriana, 1144, 16th c.

KB, Thott 1510, 1550s.

BnF, latin 10536, 15th c.

BnF, Rothschild 297, 15th c.

Rare but attractive - and difficult to produce - type medieval manuscript.

Well, I know my next bookbinding project.

I need a virgin, and a plane ticket to Italy. NOW."There may be some basis to the legends concerning unicorns after all. A roe deer was discovered on a preserve near Florence, Italy sporting only one horn. This is not to say he lost a horn and has been wandering around looking a bit lopsided–the horn grows directly in the center of his head, adding a great deal of speculation as whether this rare creature could be the stuff from which fables grow. One horned deer are uncommon but not unheard of, although the solitary horn is usually positioned on one side or another. It is believed this unusual occurrence may have been the result of early trauma or a genetic defect, but if there is one unicorn wandering around, perhaps there have been others.”From Odee’s “10 strangest animals” http://www.oddee.com/item_98851.aspxSourced from http://www.nbcnews.com/id/25097986/ns/technology_and_science-science/t/unicorn-deer-found-italian-preserve/#.UvrlM_sYvjZ

Brothers Grimm's Homeland, 2013 | Kilian Schönberger

I love everything about this, from the bros. Grimm, to the atmospheric scenery, to the fact that the photographer is one of the few people to bear the same name as me, and spelled correctly.

1 “L” is the saint. Two “L”s is the beer, dammit!
