the world is bound by secret knots

Chilling in Glendale, in the toy- and book-strewn precincts of AX's brother's home, recovering from an absolutely insane day yesterday. The troupe performed as part of the Spark! tour, and I was there as a percussionist, which is a story I will tell another time when I'm not completely ravenous and trying to follow along with the Reading Adventure of Clifford the Big Red Dog.

But here's a link to an exhibit at the Museum of Jurassic Technology, a very odd and charming place tucked into sun-bleached Culver City. Athansius Kircher was a Jesuit scholar who believed, among other things, that everything in the universe was controlled and defined by magnetism; the title of this post was his, and for some reason it's just, well, sticking to me.
