"Forget Your Past"

04.03.12

 

 I first heard about the Buzludzha monument (pronounced Buz’ol’ja) last summer when I was attending a photo festival in Bulgaria.  Alongside me judging a photography competition was Alexander Ivanov, a Bulgarian photographer who had gained national notoriety after spending the last 10 years shooting ‘Bulgaria from the Air’.  Back then he showed me some pictures of what looked to me like a cross between a flying saucer and Doctor Evil’s hideout perched atop a glorious mountain range.

(...)

Sure enough, 6 months later amidst the worst winter weather the country had experienced for many years, I was back in Bulgaria, and with the help of my friend Kaloyan Petrov we drove the 250km from Sofia to the edge of the Balkan Mountain range in which this magnificent building is located.

(...)

Buzludha is Bulgaria’s largest ideological monument to Communism. Designed by architect Guéorguy Stoilov, more than 6000 workers were involved in its 7 year construction including 20 leading Bulgarian artists who worked for 18 months on the interior decoration. A small, compulsory donation from every citizen in the country formed a large portion of the funds required to build this impressive structure that was finally unveiled in 1981 on what was the 1300th anniversary of the foundation of the Bulgarian state.

(...)

Today, this incredible derelict building stands as an iconic monument to an abandoned ideology.

Love made of guts and metal

04.03.12

 

"To take you in
Is to feel a great sadness
Is to hold a great hope
Heavy in my chest

To let you go
Is to lose my balance
Is to fall into silence
Is to wait, wait, wait

Oh sleeper, my keeper of days
We can't get back the Spring
Once it's passed

For I was born
In a colder time
And we made our vows in ice
And steel

Oh sleeper, you kissed me for luck
Did you know we found
The morning

Oh sleeper, my keeper of days
We can't get back the Spring
Once it's passed

To take you in
Is to feel a great sadness
Is to hold a great hope

So I'll make you a bed
In a bed in fields
'Cause we can't get back the Spring
Once it's passed"

"What We Know About The Voynich Manuscript"

04.03.12

 

 

 

The Voynich manuscript, also referred to as the
VMS, is an illustrated medieval folio written in an
undeciphered script.
There are several reasons why the study of the
manuscript is of interest to the natural language processing community, besides its appeal as a longenduring unsolved mystery. Since even the basic structure of the text is unknown, it provides a
perfect opportunity for the application of unsupervised learning algorithms. Furthermore, while the
manuscript has been examined by various scholars,
it has much to benefit from attention by a community with the right tools and knowledge of linguistics, text analysis, and machine learning.
This paper presents a review of what is currently
known about the VMS, as well as some original observations. Although the manuscript raises several
questions about its origin, authorship, the illustrations, etc., we focus on the text through questions
about its properties. These range from the level of
the letter (for example, are there vowels and consonants?) to the page (do pages have topics?) to the
document as a whole (are the pages in order?).
