Dune: Part Two was epic, I loved it. Hans Zimmer’s score was incredible. Saw it nearly back-to-back (16 hours) with re-watching Dune, both on IMAX. It follows the book well, but of course they left out a few things, and made it more socially acceptable. 🍿

Dutch tall (sailing) ship behind an iceberg in the background, with several people and penguins walking along the beach in the snow in front

A ship is the noblest of all man’s works – a cunning fabric of wood, and iron, and hemp, wonderfully propelled by wings of canvas, and seeming at times to have the very breath of life.

I don’t often post links, but this Trove of 4000 glass plate negatives is worth sharing. They’re such amazing quality, and one can imagine in each a story of what ordinary life in the US looked like between the 1860s and the 1930s. More photos linked at Terri Cappucci’s Somebody Photographed This.
