Ancient Fake Photos Break Stereotypes #FridayRecommends

Friday RecommendsYou know the Antikythera Mechanism? I am ALL ABOUT the Antikythera Mechanism. I posted this in 2015:

My friend Jane (Hi, Jane!) gave me a wonderful book by Jo Marchant called Decoding the Heavens, all about the Antikythera Mechanism. The Antikythera Mechanism is my new imaginary historical artifact boyfriend. It’s the earliest known analog computer, fabricated around 100-70 BC. Yes, BC. Fascinating book!

and this:

The Antikythera Mechanism is even older than I thought! This article from late 2014 dates it to maybe 205 BC! While you’re over there at Ancient Origins, poke around some. It’s fascinating!

Now here’s another article, posted last year, but I just now read it, with two wonderful videos, one of a computer model showing the construction and functions of the device and one of a physical reconstruction made of LEGO.

Wonder how to spot a fake photo? It isn’t easy, apparently. Here’s an article on some ways to do it.

NOW.

Joey asked me if she’d told me one of her daughters had played with Black Violin. I had never heard of them, so I looked them up. Then I returned to her comment and was like: OMG!!! Because they’re phenomenal. Here’s their official website. I’ve bought all three of their albums FOR CASH MONEY and subscribed to their YouTube channel.

Here’s a video about them and their music.

And here, in case you think (as I did) that all hip-hop DJs did was ruin good records by scratching them up, is their video of mashing classical and hip-hop music.

Awesome.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: A character hears music that blows their mind.

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.
