    смотрение, очень кратко
    The Draughtsman's Contract (1982, реж. Питер Гринуэй): котирую, надо бы пересмотреть еще раз. Если постараться описать суть короткой фразой, то вот: смесь Blow-Up и The Wicker Man.

    ... in Greenaway's world, systems or codes of any kind are treated as inadequate, hopelessly subjective fantasies that deserve contempt, not respect. Categorical thinking claims it makes the world easier to understand; Greenaway maintains it distorts the world by forcing it into unnatural categories. Many of his films satirise catalogues and organising principles, firstly by presenting absurd examples of each, and secondly by structuring events around them ... Paradoxically, as much as he distrusts systems, he sees them as the only viable alternative to narratives, which 'do nothing more than illustrate text'.

    подавать в неглубоких супницах
    Все уже видели, наверное:
    Любимое блюдо Патриарха Московского и всея Руси Алексия II.

    Пельмени с черной икрой.

    Все дело в тесте, которое надо раскатать не толще папиросной бумаги. Пельмени опускаются в кипяток и тут же вынимаются. Варить нельзя: икра становится белесой, теряет вкус. Потом сбрызнуть топленым маслом и подавать в неглубоких супницах.
    Комментарий дня от [info]diabigor: Подавать в неглубоких супницах. Что значит аскетизм. Другой бы на его месте прямо из глубоких супниц бы жрал.

    песни на радио "Эсхатон"
    (Andrew Bird's Bowl Of Fire)

    Studies have shown that we, like sheep, are prone
    To sure fatal doses of malcontent through osmosis.
    But don't be sympathetic, just pass the anaesthetic
    'Cuz sheep are benign, and on the young we will dine.
    Burn her pale blue shroud, and tread on her bones.
    The din of the boys' club crowd reveals we've always been clones.
    Oh this being true, you know there's more than just two.
    In the cards are four aces, so turn and shoot at twelve paces.

    So tie up your laces for the gene pool race of races.

    "So you talk about mobs and the working classes as if they were the question. You've got that eternal idiotic idea that if anarchy came it would come from the poor. Why should it? the poor have been rebels, but they have never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else in there being some decent government. The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all. Aristocrats were always anarchists, as you can see from the barons' wars."

    студенты, епта
    Получил сегодня анонимные отзывы студентов за прошедший семестр. Стандартные вопросы: что вы можете сказать о качестве преподавания? о преподавателе? о выборе учебника? и т.д. Ответы были в целом положительные, но наиболее запомнившийся отзыв состоял из одного и того же односложного ответа на каждый вопрос: Что же это был за ответ? )

    (п)раз(д)ные мысли
    Известно, что некоторые математики принимали амфетамины, и не могли без них поддерживать тот темп работы, к которому они привыкли: например, Эрдеш, Тарский. Напрашивается вопрос: нужно ли ввести проверку на допинг, скажем, при присуждении филдсовской премии? (О, эта тема уже обсуждалась).

    из серии "100 доселе неизвестных фактов о себе"
    Обнаружил на странице одного бывшего аспиранта из Урбаны-Шампейн следующее, в рубрике "Some little recognized but pervasivley applied principles":
    Principle of Minimization of Weirdness (or Mulder's Hammer): If you come across two or more things that are weird and inexplicable, it is acceptable to assign them the same root cause, or otherwise consider them equivalent.
    Название аспирант придумал сам, а формулировка приписывается мне. Аспиранта помню, семинар по нейронным сетям, на котором я вроде бы сие сформулировал, тоже, а вот как формулировал -- увы, не припомню.

    Lynch, Herzog, Jodorowsky
    Рано или поздно это должно было случиться, и вот:
    The Hollywood Reporter reports that a film co-written by Herzog and his longtime assistant director Herbert Golder will be produced by David Lynch and his Absurda production company. My Son, My Son is based on the true story of a man who, based upon a play by Sophocles, kills his mother with a sword. Lynchian enough already, the film will tell the story in a flashback structure. Also following Lynch's style, it will be shot in DV rather than film. ...

    As odd a collaboration as Herzog and Lynch may be (and trust us, it's odd), even more unlikely comes the announcement that Lynch and Absurda will be working on a film with Alejandro Jodorowsky. Best known for his series of surreal, mind-bending Fando y Lis, El Topo and The Holy Mountain, Jodorowsky hasn't made a film since 1990. Jodorowsky certainly shares a lot more common ground with Lynch, but hearing of any new project by the Chilean 79-year-old is a bit incredible.

    Jodorowsky's film will be the metaphysical gangster movie King Shot. Already guaranteed to be NC-17 (no surprise given his earlier works), the film features Marilyn Manson as a 300-year old pope and will star Nick Nolte.

    жизнь замечательных людей
    Thomas Simpson (August 20, 1710 – May 14, 1761) was a British mathematician, inventor and eponym of Simpson's rule to approximate definite integrals. However, this rule was also found 200 years earlier from Johannes Kepler, in the so-called de:Keplersche Fassregel. Simpson was born in Market Bosworth, Leicestershire. The son of a weaver, Simpson taught himself mathematics, then turned to astrology after seeing an solar eclipse. He also dabbled in divination and caused fits in a girl after 'raising a devil' from her. After this incident, he and his wife had to flee to Derby. They later moved to London.

    From 1743, he taught mathematics at the Royal Military Academy, Woolwich.

    Apparently, the method that became known as Simpson's rule was well known and used earlier by Bonaventura Cavalieri (a student of Galileo) in 1639, later rediscovered by James Gregory, and was only attributed to Simpson.

    Details of Simpson's personal life are not plentiful. Simpson's successor as professor of mathematics at the Woolwich Academy, Charles Hutton, offered an interesting, if apologetic, hint: "It has been said that Mr. Simpson frequented low company, with whom he used to guzzle porter and gin: but it must be observed that the misconduct of his family put it out of his power to keep the company of gentlemen, as well as to procure better liquor."
    (From Stephen Stigler, The History of Statistics: The Measurement of Uncertainty Before 1900)
