“There was a smell of Time in the air tonight. He smiled and turned the fancy in his mind. There was a thought. What did Time smell like? Like dust and clocks and people. And if you wondered what Time sounded like it sounded like water running in a dark cave and voices crying and dirt dropping down upon hollow box lids, and rain. And, going further, what did Time look like? Time looked like snow dropping silently into a black room or it looked like a silent film in an ancient theater, one hundred billion faces falling like those New Year balloons, down and down into nothing. That was how Time smelled and looked and sounded. And tonight - Tomás shoved a hand into the wind outside his truck - tonight you could almost touch Time.”—
Whew. I’ve been filming videos for It’s Okay To Be Smart all day today, and I’m tired, so my look at episode 3 of Frankenstein MD (“Anesthetics and Paralytics”) will have to wait until tomorrow! It’s the first time we get to meet Eli and Rory, who are adorbz. Being friends with Victoria seems like a really dangerous prospect.
I’m so excited for today’s premiere of Frankenstein MD that I think I’m going to post each of the first three episodes (which all premiered concurrently) in a row. Maybe with some science-y perspectives, since I am the science advisor for the show.
I’ve mentioned lots of awesome science books in episodes of my YouTube show (and several of them have inspired whole episodes). Now I’ve finally collected all those books in one place!
Click here for the list of books I’ve featured or mentioned, plus links to buy them or find them in your local library. You can even see which videos they were featured in, just in case you’ve got some catching up to do :)
I’ll be updating this list as new books are mentioned in future videos!
