autumn leaves are dropping fast in these parts, and this photo is barely related to my ramblings below
Been thinking about the golden ratio lately.
The recent post about Radiohead’s latest album by Puddlegum might have started my mental wandering.
The piece is very well bunk, but a fun read in conspiracy theory mindset. This bit from the comments in particular pulled out a detail I hadn’t noticed:
The album title can be heard in the backing vocals of Reckoner. But, did anyone notice the IN RAAAAAAAIN IN RAAAAAAAIN IN RAAAAAAAINNNNN IN RAAAAAAAIN IN RAAAAAAAINBOWS starts precisely at the albums golden section?
(sidenote: I’m super enjoying the whole In Rainbows album)
Once I stopped drooling over the photo of this extraordinary design duo’s apartment, I noted the sidebar lists their “peak” from 1965 to 1985.
This bothered me because I’d like to think the husband and wife team are still crafting stellar work. But maybe there’s something to it. Maybe we find a sweet spot in life where all cylinders are firing in properly and the result is the height of our craft.
I figure it possible to be elastic as well, growing or shrinking according to lifespan.
Or, it’s malarkey and I need to let it go.
