Episode 11: NEWTON Has Joined the Party

Episode 11 Dolby

Rather than telling more stories about historical figures that might or might not be entirely made-up, I'm going to use this space today to point at and scream about a bunch of things that I have deemed swell.

First, the webcomic Thinking Ape Blues over at http://www.thinkingapeblues.com/. If you like your humor Nietzscherrific (and what decent person doesn't?), you owe it to yourself to take a look. I love it and recommend all of stout brain to submit to its charms.

Second, Bowie stuff. If you haven't seen his guest appearance on Extras yet, it's worth a watch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iQG_UOuqlM0

Third, Mr. B Natural, a brass-instrument infomercial from the 50s or 60s as served up by Mystery Science Theater 3000. It had been a while since I saw it, but it is truly a gem of the genre: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I8kH4XyWjq4

Why does Newton wear green and blue robes? This is a fair question. The obvious answer, to distinguish him from the hordes of other enrobed and bewigged figures that show up in this comic, is a valid one. Another good answer is that these robes symbolize that Newton has reached the pinnacle of mathemagical study in his timeline and thus is a force to be reckoned with.
