CREATIVE ROUND UP!

Time for Salem Switchel – STREETS OF SALEM BLOG

July was pretty hot; August will likely be cooler, but I still think it’s time to revive an old summer drink here in Salem called switchel. A colonial “ade” made of ginger, vinegar, and a sweetening agent, switchel has enjoyed a revival over the last few years, and is currently being produced in such variant hipster havens as Vermont and Brooklyn. In older texts, it’s often referred to as “haymaker’s punch”, implying agrarian origins, but I’ve also found plenty of references to switchel in maritime and military sources. There’s a famous reference to it in the account of one of the major naval battles of the War of 1812, between the USS Constitution and the HMS Guerriere off the coast of Nova Scotia. Anticipating a great victory, the Guerriere Captain James Dacres ordered his cooks to “prepare the switchel” for the soon-to-be captured Americans.

Creative summer reading  – PEM CONNECTED BLOG

I’m a marine biologist, and came to Appledore Island and Shoals Marine Laboratory as a Cornell graduate student to conduct my field research. I’ve no background or training in art, and even less talent. As a student, I studied rocky tidepools around the island as sites for the threespine stickleback (a small yet highly significant fish – the only fish to help someone win the Nobel prize) to reproduce and for their offspring to grow. Over several summers of data collection in the early to mid 1980s, I became very familiar with Appledore’s tidepools – and the complex rocks holding them.

Pokémon and Public History – STREETS OF SALEM BLOG

Public history is about engaging the public with the past and its public memory, often through places, so you would think that an augmented reality game that drives people to historical sites would be welcomed by museum professionals and heritage site managers. Their reaction to Pokémon Go, however, has been decidedly mixed.While park sites seem to embrace the game and its players, several museums and sacred sites have just said no to Pokémon Go. In Washington, D.C., the United States Holocaust Museum opted out after a photograph of a poisonous-gas-emitting Pokémon named Koffing in the museum elicited quite a response online.

A Hidden House with quite a History – STREETS OF SALEM BLOG

Hidden behind a four-story brick apartment block built in the early twentieth century on lower Essex Street is a much older, much-altered house which has the appearance of a Georgian cottage. It’s not quite that, but close. The Christopher Babbidge House has been through quite a……..metamorphosis; I’m not sure if I have it completely straight or correct but here goes. According to Frank Cousins’ Colonial Architecture in Salem, the house is first period, built by tailor Babbidge as early as the 1660s on Derby Street. It descended in the Babbidge family until the mid-eighteenth century, at which time is was acquired by Richard Derby, patriarch of the famous Salem merchant family.

Secrets to a Successful Creative Road Trip  – 99u

The sameness of office life has a way of dulling your senses, lulling you into a dreamlike state and turning you into a task robot, mindlessly staring into the world wide ether day after day. Your only solution to avoid becoming that sad sap who is so immune to the world around them that they wear their phone headset both into and out of the bathroom, while carrying on a conversation with the caller the entire time, is to bust out of your confines and go on a creative road trip. You heard that right – a creative road trip, which marries the freedom and exploration of travel with your artistic passion. It’s the chance to move outside of your normal working conditions, where you have all of your tools, and force yourself to make something outside of your comfort zone.
