Obsessives: Renaissance Winemaker

www.chow.com Sean Thackrey is a winemaker, indeed, but he is so much more an archivist, historian, linguist, photographer, art collector. Thackrey shares his views on the importance of barrels, respect for ancient techniques like letting grapes rest, the word terroir (he hates it), and much more. For wine aficionados, hes an inspiration. For wine novices, hes a deep source of knowledge.

Greensleeves – Renaissance style

The all-famous English folksong Greensleeves, here performed in a distinct renaissance style by the Baltimore Consort. Perhaps this is close to how it originally sounded?

Introduction to Ancient Greek History (CLCV 205) n this lecture, Professor Donald Kagan explores the rise of Greek colonies. He argues that the rise of new colonies was primarily due to the need for new farmland, although he acknowledges several other important reasons. He also shows where the Greeks colonized and explains that the process of founding a new colony probably took place within the dynamics of a polis. Finally, he offers a few important outcomes of this colonizing impulse. Complete course materials are available at the Open Yale Courses website: open.yale.edu This course was recorded in Fall 2007.

Die Renaissance bezeichnet kulturgeschichtlich das ausgehende Mittelalter. Die Wiederentdeckung der Antike ist ein wichtiges Merkmal dieser Epoche, die in Italien etwa von 1420 bis 1600 und im übrigen Europa von 1500 bis 1600 dauert. Ihr Stil wirkt sich in allen Lebensbereichen aus. Im Gegensatz zum mittelalterlich religiös geprägten Welt- und Menschenbild werden die Diesseitigkeit , die Naturbeobachtung und die Entfaltung der individuellen einzelnen Persönlichkeit betont. Ideales Ziel ist der allseitig gebildete Mensch, der „uomo universalis”. Neben den Klerus treten als Bildungsträger gelehrte Laien. […]

Ric Roc Zoo performs at the Silver Leaf renaissance faire. The fair brochure says this about him:

Ric Roc Zoo, a bombastic beguiler of bumbling buffoonery, has played to audiences of all ages. There are two different shows to experience: The "Stupid Show" is a juggling favorite of audiences everywhere; Dexterity and balance mixed with stupid antics. The "Dumb Show" is physical masque comedy blended with magic, juggling and improvisation. A wacky, one of a kind show.

This was the stupid show.
