Happy World Beard Day! There are certainly hundreds of interesting mustached and bearded men throughout the Smithsonian collections, but we thought this man from the Umingmaktormiut tribe had one pretty “cool” beard! Photo via Smithsonian Archives
September is situated in a seasonal transition zone, in a place where people are trying to be excited about autumn so they can break up with summer on good terms.
"It’s not you, Summer, it’s me. I’ve gotta move on with my life. School is starting back up and I can’t devote as much time to you as we both know I should."
This mix starts off a little slow, a little sad, a little soulful, but builds into an electric guitar-soaked golden hour of pop punk, where you see the sun peeking through the changing leaves and the chill in the air makes you exhilarated.
Cause if we have to end it with summer, we might as well have a good breakup playlist.

A quintessential entry in the horror film oeuvre, “Poltergeist” tells the story of a family beset by a group of particularly malicious spirits after moving into their new suburban California home.

According to legend, Mir Ali Tabrizi created the Persian script known as nasta’liq after Ali ibn Abi Talib, cousin and son-in-law of the Prophet Muhammad, appeared to him in a dream. Ali, traditionally seen as the initiator of calligraphy in Islam, told Mir Ali Tabrizi to draw letters resembling the wings of flying geese.
