10 Strange Theater Superstitions! | Paranormal Encounters

"Theater Folk are a superstitious lot, and considering the amount of things that can (and do) go wrong in a performance, it’s not surprising that folklore has popped up giving an explanation to these occurrences. These myths go above and beyond walking under ladders and opening umbrellas inside (although those are adhered to as well!); these are specifically for those working in the arts. In this list I delve into the world of theater superstitions and try to provide the reasons for their existence."

Your Friend in Riga: Folklore? What's so special in it?

Your Friend in Riga: Folklore? What's so special in it? | Fairy tales, Folklore, and Myths | Scoop.it

"One folklore ensemble in Latvia, who are celebrating their 60 years anniversary the next year and has poor online presence, kindly asked me to make for them a simple blog, so they could announce their news and also put online the history of the ensemble online. For every work you do there is some music that can help you, and, of course, today my music was Latvian folklore, post folk and sounds of Latvian traditional music instruments. I simply can't avoid telling you about Latvian relationship with folklore, although take in account that I'm talking from a very subjective perspective.

 

"First of all, acquaint yourself with traditional Latvian music instrument called 'kokle' in this nice piece of music by Latvian musician Laima Jansone (I'm a little bit in love with this music):"

 

Note: For those curious about the instrument being played in the video, Google translates "kokle" as "psaltry."

Spanish Folklore: Hogueras de San Juan

Spanish Folklore: Hogueras de San Juan | Fairy tales, Folklore, and Myths | Scoop.it

Wow! Just, wow.

 

This page presents a series of photographs of people, almost all women, wearing incredibly beautiful and detailed medieval or Rennaisance-style costumes on the streets in what appears to be a parade. There's no explanatory text, just the photographs with captions "Spanish Folklore: Hogueras de San Juan" numbered 1 through 20.

 

Hogueras de San Juan is Spanish for Bonfires of Saint John, a festival celebrated in primarily in Spain on or around Saint John's Eve, June 23. (Wikipedia, "Bonfires of Saint John") Although celebrated after true midsummer, the festival is very much part of the European tradition of celebrating the longest day of the year.

"Coursera Course: "Fantasy and Science Fiction: The Human Mind, Our Modern World"

 

"A few days ago, one of my online acquaintances on Google Plus mentioned that she was listening to audiobook versions of Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass in association with the Coursera course, "Fantasy and Science Fiction: The Human Mind, Our Modern World." Curious, I looked a into it and discovered the class had just started, was free, being offered by a noted professor (Eric S. Rabkin of the University of Michigan), and still open. Impulsively, I signed up despite the fact that my schedule is already crammed full and I should be pruning it not planting new activities.
