“I smelt your scent on a seatbelt,” he sings on Cornerstone, which may just be the best thing Arctic Monkeys have ever recorded. The lyrics are a dazzling display of what Turner can do: a fabulously witty, poignant evocation of lost love, packed with weirdly suggestive details. The music is a long, wistful acoustic sigh, the melody so effortlessly lovely that you can’t believe no one’s come up with it before.

This is the very first X-Ray image ever taken, by Wilhem Röntgen. He called them X-Rays because he didn’t know what the hell they were at first. So X as in “Solve for X”

It’s an image of his wife, Anna Bertha Ludwig. Because he was too much of a coward. Well, that’s not true, he had spent weeks with these things and just needed to focus on taking the image. When she saw it she said “I have seen my death” which is a little unnerving.

In 1901, Röntgen won the first ever Nobel Prize for his work into X-Rays. I wonder if he knew how much they’d change the world.

How playing an instrument benefits your brain

Recent research about the mental benefits of playing music has many applications, such as music therapy for people with emotional problems, or helping to treat the symptoms of stroke survivors and Alzheimer’s patients. But it is perhaps even more significant in how much it advances our understanding of mental function, revealing the inner rhythms and complex interplay that make up the amazing orchestra of our brain.
Did you know that every time musicians pick up their instruments, there are fireworks going off all over their brain? On the outside they may look calm and focused, reading the music and making the precise and practiced movements required. But inside their brains, there’s a party going on.

Olivia Knapp’s intricate hand drawn pen and ink style is influenced by European line engravings of decorative relief and scientific specimens from the 16th and 17th centuries. Her tight cross hatching technique involves long slow and steady curved lines that articulate the surface contours of her subjects; creating supple and tangible imagery.
