River House, Serbia

A brief but lovely midwinter tune, written by a friend of mine.

Give thanks for this, the shortest day,

Keep out the winter’s breath

Grant us health and peace and faith

And help us get some rest.

Mending sail on the German four-masted steel barque Magdalene Vinnen.
In 1945, this ship was awarded to the Soviet Union as war compensation and renamed (dun dun dun…) SEDOV. It is now the largest operational tall ship in existence.

Tlingit War Helmet Rediscovered after 100 years
A fantastic Tlingit war helmet has been recently rediscovered in the backroom of a museum in Springfield, Massachussests.  The helmet was accessioned in 1899 as an “Aleutian hat” and the designation was never questioned until now.
The article also contains a neato painting by Ketchikan artist Ray Troll and, amidst a really fascinating batch of comments, a pic of a helmet modeled after someone with Bell’s Palsy.

I went to RCCC once. It was 90% superhero/collector/nostalgia-focused. Stumptown highlights the present and future of comics outside the twin fortresses of DC and Marvel.

Stumptown’s executive decisions continue to befuddle me.

The STS Sedov, apparently (and so tagged by the OP). The image is used on their website (hosted so), but doesn’t appear in their photo gallery. (Or at least not at first browse.)

My research hero! <3
Man, that thing is big. The deck alone is 100m/328ft.

I think this just stands on its own, to be honest. I know my day just got a little brighter.
