I'm going to be disappointed when I have to retire this jumpsuit until next spring. #FineFemmeFriday
Analysis of the Seikilos Epitaph and comparison to modern themes
"Well the years start coming and they don't stop coming
Fed to the rules and I hit the ground running
Didn't make sense not to live for fun
Your brain gets smart but your head gets dumb
So much to do, so much to see
So what's wrong with taking the back streets?
You'll never know if you don't go
You'll never shine if you don't glow."
The Seikilos Epitaph is the world's oldest surviving complete musical composition (including notation), from the 1st or 2nd century AD. This Ancient Greek musical notation was found inscribed on a memorial monument in a Hellenistic area of what is now Turkey.
An English translation of the lyrics:
"While you live, shine
have no grief at all
life exists only for a short while
and Time demands his due."
And this same sentiment has carried on in song through to the 20th century:
"Fall starts..." Alignment chart (Northern hemisphere)
Lawful good: September 1st, because a season starts on the first day of the month
Neutral good: When the leaves turn colours/The night of the Harvest Moon
Chaotic good: When pumpkin spice drinks become available
Lawful neutral: After Labour Day
True neutral: Autumnal equinox
Chaotic neutral: Hoodie weather
Lawful evil: 40% off Halloween decor at Michael's in August
Neutral evil: Fall is October only
Chaotic evil: April 30 Halfoween
The moon isn't visible from my window because another building is blocking it, but it's very close to passing into the open part of the sky – what I can see is a long and foggy section of brightness streaking out from behind the shadow of high rise balconies. Eerie moonlit clouds are one of the best things about the autumn night sky.

@Alamantus It's adorable, but at smaller sizes the bee on the book isn't going to be very clear
dumb rpg idea
Submitted this in a podcast's discord where they solicit (usually joke-y) game ideas:
THE VVICK - Do your best to keep your Puritan family together despite the lure and bad influence of the John Wick living in the nearby woods.
BLACK PHILLIP: Wouldst thou like to live John Wick-edly? <-- the game's tagline
"The Torture Victim's Backside Hymnal" – music transcribed and played from a sheet music inscription on the butt cheeks of a torture victim in Hieronymus Bosch's "The Garden Of Earthly Delights."
The piano arrangement is surprisingly plinky and cheerful (The Ice Cream Truck Of Earthly Delights?) and there's a Gregorian chant version linked too.
