The Art Newspaper: Tullio’s Adam returns to view at the Met.

One of its greatest treasure, Tullio Lombardo’s life-sized marble sculpture of the nude Adam crashed to the stone floor as its medium-density plywood stand buckled and collapsed.”  Even the Art Newspaper doesn’t proof its copy.

New Statesman: Treasure trails - how museums became diplomatic fixers.

Yes. I used to think antiquities should be repatriated; the Bamiyan Buddhas and other events of late have convinced me it is better to take mankind’s common heritage and spread it as widely as possible so we cannot lose it. So I vote ‘no’ on the Elgin marbles now.

The Rumpus: A Girl And Her Car.

Hmmm. In the wake of the current video game-vs-women controversies, this is no longer as cool and pragmatic as it sounds. More like Neanderthal-era culture needs to be chucked in the dustbin.

LRB: Adam Shatz reviews ‘Congo’ by David Van Reybrouck.

Congo’s history has been ‘epic’, except in the one respect that might have lent a redemptive cast to its many troubles: the heart of Africa is still very far from seizing control of its destiny.

Vanity Fair: Why a Street Criminal Stole a Multi-Million-Dollar Violin.

If you look at it another way, there was something dangerous and almost deranged about it, the kind of crime Abbott and Costello might plan, after consultation with Cheech and Chong and Martin and Lewis.

Dazed: Glastonbury bans sale of Native American headdresses.

Appropriate. Those who make and wear tattoos know not to copy ‘real’ Maori Ta Moko designs out of respect; the Maori consider this a form of ‘identity theft’, because the patterns are family-based. Why should a similar respect not be extended to Native Americans?  Remember how much Christians love Serrano’s “Piss Christ.

Vox: Marvel wants to give us the next Hunger Games.

Diving into the Young Adult book market headfirst. When the zombie books follow their lead, I suppose we need to change ‘penny dreadfuls’ to ‘dollar dreadfuls’?

MedievalBooks: Medieval Desktops.

Readers would usually have a pen nearby even when they were just reading. After all, remarks and critiques needed to be added to the margin at the spur of the moment. ‘Penless’ images, while rare, often show a crowded desktop.

Slate: Annie Baker’s The Flick and the joy of reading plays.

One of the things I still do to stay fluent (in case my stutter ever comes back) is to read plays aloud. It’s fun. We used to have a small group of literati in college who’d get together every so often and just read (and act, of course) something off-the-cuff. Beats Trivial Pursuit. I was once told I sound like a mix between Robert Goulet and Yogi Bear when reading “Hamlet.”
