When Eddie takes Roger Rabbit into the back room at the bar where Dolores works to cut apart the hand-cuffs in Who Framed Roger Rabbit, the lamp from ceiling is bumped and swinging. Lots of extra work was needed to make the shadows match between the actual room shots and the animation for very little viewer benefit. Today, “Bump the Lamp” is a term used by many Disney employees to refer to going that extra mile on an effect just to make it a little more special, even though most viewers or guests will never notice it.
The internet is amazing.
Libraries are amazing.
Learning is amazing.
I could learn so many things right now just wandering article to article through wikipedia.

Remember my pet caterpillar Shane? Found him at church during a sermon about Satan XD. He was such a fun pet in his larval stage. He used to love to swing from my hair.
Then everything changed when he pupated. He never touched me. He just spent several months looking and acting like a turd
But it was worth it! Look at him now! He’s so fluffy I’m gonna die!! And the friendly disposition has returned! He sits on my shoulder watching The Sing Off with me. Also, he’s a she! and she just laid eggs! I can’t wait for the 2nd generation!
this dude got his own pokemon

In the aftermath of John Travolta’s re-naming of “Idina Menzel” as “Adele Dazeem” (also spelled Adela Dazeem, Adele Tazeem, etc.), it’s a linguistically interesting question as to how he got from one version to the other.
Many current news sources have suggested that it might be dyslexia. Although I know nothing about Travolta’s actual medical history, there are two reasons why I think this particular error cannot be blamed on dyslexia and is a product of more general memory lapses that could have happened to any of us.

Today I visited the medieval library at Merton College, Oxford as a guest of the Fellow Librarian. It is the UK’s oldest library that was designed to be used by scholars, and it has been functioning as such since its construction in the 1370s. You enter the library at the ground level through a massive door. Going up the stairs you reach the upper floor, where the books are stored. It is sensational to walk among the rows of book cases in the half-lit room. Their shelves are filled with hundreds of early-modern books (many still fitted in their original bindings), which are patiently waiting until someone will touch them again. Heavy benches hoovering over wooden floors are a reminder that this room was once filled with scholars leaning over their books, trying to catch the last light of the day. In the middle of the library a heavy 13th-century book chest is found, next to a small collection of shiny 14th-century astrolabes. What a heavenly place.
Pics (my own): library, book cases, consultation bench, book chest (13th century), stained-glass window (medieval), and entrance. More information about the library on Merton College’s website (here) and also here; more on Merton College, which dates from the 13th-century, here.
