• Weekly Round-up •
The Oxonian Review is pleased to present our Weekly Round-up, featuring websites and articles the editorial staff have recently found interesting, illuminating, or otherwise noteworthy.
1. “The Eyesore of the Month“, Kunstler: “Every artifact surrounding it evinces horror and rot.”
2. “Take That Featuring Lulu – ‘Relight My Fire’“, Freaky Trigger: “Most disco cover versions by pop bands lack vocal chops, but more, they lack urgency – any sense that something is at stake, that these three, four or nine minutes are the singer’s only chance to get a feeling over, rather than one of many opportunities to put on some glitter and a wig.”
3. “An Asian Origin For Human Ancestors?“, Science: “The discovery of a new primate that lived about 37 million years ago in the ancient swamplands of Myanmar bolsters the idea that the deep primate family tree that gave rise to humans is rooted in Asia.”
4. “Iranian Government Pays Paramilitary Hackers“, Ars Technica: “By controlling the infrastructure itself, the Iranian government’s agencies could capture even tighter control over what was being said and done online.”
5.”Take Me Home by Ray Bradbury“, The New Yorker: “One of the priests was like my grandpa, whom I put on Mars to see the lovely balloons again, but this time they were Martians, all fired and bright, adrift above a dead sea.”
