good news! i can finally feel uncomfortable outside of specifically designated "free dance zones."

A nearly century-old law that turned New York bars into no-dancing zones, prevented singers like Billie Holiday and Ray Charles from performing and drew protest from Frank Sinatra, is finally set to be struck down.

Brother and I had a little Festivus: the Airing of Grievances. It was amicable. But there's a long way to go. He still reacts very badly to criticism, and still does lots of dumbass things. Apparently I'm "solving problems that don't exist."

Selected pages from the Spätgotisches Musterbuch des Stephan Schriber, a manuscript which appears to be some kind of sketchbook, belonging to a 15th century monk working in South-West Germany, where ideas and layouts for illuminated manuscripts were tried out and skills developed.

A couple weeks ago my iPhone stopped charging. From researching on line it seemed like Apple will not fix the charging port (or if they would it would be very expensive.) So I called CellSavers which is an independent company I had read great reviews of online. They have a fleet of technicians and if you are in a covered area they come to you. A very nice young man came to the apartment a couple hours after I submitted my request. He opened the phone and replaced the charging port. It works perfectly now. Cost me $79 dollars and I wouldn't have had to pay if he couldn't fix it. Really seems like a great deal to me. I guess opening the phone voids the warranty, but I'm not under warranty anymore so that didn't matter. 

The company has now rebranded as Puls. I would definitely recommend them.

Climate change will bring more frequent and fierce rainstorms to cities like Houston. But unchecked development remains a priority in the famously un-zoned city, creating short-term economic gains for some while increasing flood risks for everyone.

I hope this hidden studio remains hidden. Pretty cool.

This weekend, Tanglewood Music Center in Massachusetts is featuring concerts of the music of French composer Olivier Messiaen and bird walks. Classical music critic Jeremy Eichler says Messiaen's love and study of birds is unmatched, but he's one of many composers who have made music out of birdsong over the centuries.

Eichler (@Jeremy_Eichler) joins Here & Now's Robin Young to take a listen to some examples.
