Concerning the brilliance of Togawa Jun

This is an extension to Sunday's entry about Hosono-tinged 80s Japanese pop; in a late comment, Mario Campos said I should have included Jun Togawa , the extraordinary, zany 80s diva who's like Catherine Ringer from Les Rita Mitsouko, Cindy Lauper, Nina Hagen, Hanayo and Bjork all rolled into one.…

How easy is it to paralyze the Polish railroad? Let's find out!

In recent days, there has been a peculiar "trend" of emergency stopping of trains using radio-stop signals. Not for the first time and probably not for the last, but this time the situation is interesting in that there is an ongoing war abroad, and various politicians are trying to "connect" themselves to these actions with their speeches, often speaking untruthfully. So, let's see what the reality is. I just woke up from hibernation... What actually happened? In the past few days, "someone" maliciously caused…

Titivillus was a demon said to work on behalf of Belphegor, Lucifer or Satan to introduce errors into the work of scribes. The first reference to Titivillus by name occurred in Tractatus de Penitentia, c. 1285, by Johannes Galensis (John of Wales). Attribution has also been given to Caesarius of Heisterbach. Titivillus has also been described as collecting idle chat that occurs during church service, and mispronounced, mumbled or skipped words of the service, to take to Hell to be counted against the offenders. He has been called the "patron demon of scribes", as Titivillus provides an easy excuse for the errors that are bound to creep into manuscripts as they are copied.Marc Drogin noted in his instructional manual, Medieval Calligraphy: Its History and Technique (1980), that "for the past half-century every edition of The Oxford English Dictionary has listed an incorrect page reference for, of all things, a footnote on the earliest mention of Titivillus."
