[A] college student transcribed and recorded a musical score written across the bum of an individual in Hieronymus Bosch‘s Garden of Earthly Delights.

Hieronymus Bosch never, ever, ever gets boring, even centuries after his death. I really do hope he’s a zombie somewhere out there.

About Heretic

I design video games for a living, write fiction, political theory and poetry for personal amusement, and train regularly in Western European 16th century swordwork. On frequent occasion I have been known to hunt for and explore abandoned graveyards, train tunnels and other interesting places wherever I may find them, but there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I am preparing to set off a zombie apocalypse. Nothing that will stand up in court, at least. I use paranthesis with distressing frequency, have a deep passion for history, anthropology and sociological theory, and really, really, really hate mayonnaise. But I wash my hands after the writing. Promise.
