I was ill last week and finally had a chance to catch up on reading some blogs for a bit.
There seemed to be a theme running through a few of them. Namely blood and animals.
mike pickard‘s amazing plea against the danish ritual of dolphin killing for adolescent males, instead of lasertag or circumcision.
and on a similarly red, but philosophically different note, photographer lesley turnbull has posted strangely beautiful post about a talisman and the humane killing of a sick horse (which still makes me squeamish because i’m cowardly, not because i think it’s cruel).
i don’t usually find copious amounts of viscera beautiful (unless it’s the final scene of american beauty), but there was something enthralling about both of these.
sorry if you’re eating breakfast and checking these out.
