Books Unbound – Frankenstein, Part 9


Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley was 18 when she and her husband, Percy Bysshe Shelley, visited some literary friends and got involved in a challenge, to see who could write the most frightening story. Out of a group that included the poet Lord Byron, only Mary’s story of a scientist who goes too far has lasted as a landmark of fantastic literature. Mary Shelley was twenty when the book was published.

Frankenstein was published in 1818, as the Industrial Revolution readied for takeoff in Europe. Science held out the promise of mankind’s triumph over nature, even over death itself – and electricity was the key. In the novel, a doctor uses electricity to re-animate parts of human corpses into a whole, living being – who, although hideous, develops intelligence and self-awareness – and finally turns against its creator. Frankenstein was banned in South Africa in 1955, for containing material deemed “indecent” and “obscene.”

Bloomington Beware! – Shellshock/Bash Bug


If you thought the “Heartbleed” bug was bad, get ready for Shellshock, as the Bash Bug is much, much worse. 70 percent of all computers — including your phone, maybe your car, and even your thermostat — have been vulnerable for over twenty years.

Firehouse Sessions – Shovels and Rope


Much is made of the on-stage chemistry between husband-and-wife Americana duo Shovels & Rope, who solder their harmonies with steady eye contact. During their visit to the WFHB studios, Cary Ann Hearst laughed it off, “We’ve been married for about ten thousand years!” Michael Trent backed her up, saying that the glances passed between them during sets are not about romance: “It’s communication. We’re talking about music.”

The Charleston-based band’s second album, 2012’s O’Be Joyful, made them stars on the country folk scene, with the single “Birmingham” picking up song of the year honors at the Americana Music Awards. Swimmin’ Time, released last summer, has resulted in even more national exposure, but the duo is sticking to their insulated DIY ethos. They talked with host Katie Moulton about collaboration, touring, and what they never leave home without (hint: it has paws).

U.S. Supreme Court Rules Against Indiana’s Appeal to Ban Same-sex Marriages


Today, the U.S. Supreme Court announced that it would not hear an appeal from the state of Indiana, together with four other states, to district court rulings against same-sex marriage legal bans in these states. In Indiana’s case, Attorney General Zoeller had appealed to the Supreme Court against the September 4th ruling of the Seventh Circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeals which, in turn, had upheld the June 25 ruling in Southern District of Indiana Court, which struck down the state law banning both marriage in Indiana for same-sex couples, and recognition of same-sex marriages performed outside the state. Southern District Judge Richard Young had ruled that dual prohibitions violated due process and equal protection under the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Ken Falk, Legal Director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana and a member of the legal team that mounted the original appeal against the Indiana prohibitions responded to today’s decision…
