Twit Archive - 1-10 May 2011


Lots of Libya tweets, Syria, Yemen and Egypt tweets, death of Bin Laden tweets, and one Mickey Mouse tweet linking to a review of Race to Death Valley, volume one of the Fantagraphics reprints of Floyd Gottfredson’s wonderful 1930s newspaper strips.

Also:
Revisiting the Inquisition in Mallorca, a New York Times story on the 1691 burning of 37 Jews in Gomila Plaza, Palma.

Clips from Paolo and Vittorio Taviani’s film Kaos, based on Luigi Pirandelo’s stories of Sicily, music by Nicola Piovani, here and here.

Weimar Art on Magritte’s période vache.

Nina Simone, Sinnerman, and The Wailers, Sinner Man.

Tweets below the fold.
