Memes, New York, and News: ON THIS DAY IN 1923 King Tut's burial chamber was entered British archeologist Howard Carter entered the inner burial chamber of Tutankhamun's tomb and found the 3,300-year-old sarcophagus and mummy of the Egyptian pharaoh remarkably preserved NIMBLE NEWS NETWORK Tutankhamun (King Tut) was an Egyptian pharaoh who lived around 3,300 years ago. He ascended the throne at the age of 9 and died when he was 19. His tomb was found in an area called the Valley of the Kings, east of the Nile River, in November of 1922. The burial chamber, which housed his mummified remains, was not entered until this day in 1923. Excavators at the time had an agreement with the Egyptian government. They could keep half of whatever they found. The other half went to the government. Intact tombs were the exception. Everything discovered in intact tombs belonged to the government. That rule was not honored. In 2011, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City agreed to return 19 artifacts it had acquired from the tomb. As for King Tut’s mummy, it remained in the tomb and was never put on public display until 2007. Last year, for the first time ever, the tomb and all 5,000 of the artifacts King Tut was buried with, more than three millennia ago, were shown in galleries at the billion-dollar Grand Egyptian Museum (also known as the Giza Museum), located between Cairo and the pyramids.

Birthday, Community, and Lesbians: maireddog: Mark Ashton died on this day, the 11th of February, in 1987. Mark was born on the 19th of May, 1960 in Oldham, but grew up in Portrush, Northern Ireland. He moved to London in 1978, where he worked in a bar in King’s Cross, in drag as a barmaid with a blonde beehive. In the 1980s, he volunteered for London Lesbian and Gay Switchboard, campaigned for CND and joined the Communist Party, becoming the first gay secretary of the Young Communist League. Though Mark transformed the Party’s approach to LGBT rights, he and Mike Jackson, who he’d met through Switchboard, wanted to be active as openly gay people. They formed Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners (LGSM) when they collected donations for miners on strike at 1984 Gay Pride. In the evening of 1984 Pride, a miner spoke at a rally, and they were struck by the similarities between the two struggle, of LGBT rights and the Miners’ Strike. Having collected about £150, they advertised a meeting in Capital Gay. 11 people turned up and from the meeting they made a leaflet to launch LGSM - the leaflet was accepted except with an amendment to ‘one in ten miners is gay.’ As LGSM, they supported the miners as lesbian and gay people. At the second meeting, they decided to focus on one community, of the Dulais Valley, as one of the members, Hugh Williams, was from there. They then met David (Dai) Donovan, who also had thought through the similarities of their struggles and how LGSM could help. A month later, 27 lesbians and gay men, arrived at Onllwyn village in Dulais Valley. Other than some hostility (and confusion towards vegetarianism), they experienced warmth, friendship and solidarity. LGSM raised £20,000 for families of miners on strike, and based on The Sun writing that “a group of perverts” were “supporting the pits,” they organised the Pits and Perverts concert in December, 1984, headlined by Bronski Beat. The miners marched with LGSM at Gay Pride in 1985. Mark was admitted to hospital on 30th January, 1987, and died 12 days later from pneumonia, aged 26. At his memorial, there were banners from the Communist Party, Anti-Apartheid, anti-nuclear, Caribbean and community groups, as well as from LGSM. The Mark Ashton Trust was created to support individuals diagnosed with Aids; Mark is also remembered on the UK Aids Memorial Quilt and by Terrence Higgins Trust, with the Mark Ashton Red Ribbon Fund and a plaque at their London headquarters. In 2017, on what would have been his 57th birthday, he was honoured with a blue plaque above Gay’s The Word bookshop. [Images: 1. Mark Ashton at Gay Pride 1981. 2.

 .the time passes so quickly yet so slowly. it's been a week, it's been
 months, it's been years. you do not age. nobody ages. the children
 don't grow up. you start forgetting everything about your life before
 you live here. you've always lived heree
 when it rains, you hear strange faraway howls and screams that fill
 you with primal terror. you never stay outside for long on rainy days
 your crops grow within days. you plant seeds in the ground. ten
 days later, the fields are overgrown with corn
 you find things when you dig in the dirt. roots, clay, stone. books
 skulls that don't look like they belong to any animal you know
 there are only two channels on tv. the weather and the fortune
 teller. it doesn't matter when you turn it on, the weather program is
 only just starting. it will be sunny tomorrow" the weatherman says
 with empty eyes and a too-wide smile. you flip to the fortune teller's
 channel. "the spirits are in a bad mood today" she says, "be careful
 you shiver, and decide not to go to the mines today
 .have you always been so strong? you can chop down a tree in
 minutes and you can carry hundreds of stones in your backpack.
 .you wake up at exactly 6 every morning. you can't wake up earlier,
 or later
 sometimes your scarecrows are not planted where they were
 yesterday
 .you hear whispers in the old community center. you can almost seee
 something indiscernable out of the corner of your eye. you bring
 offerings, hoping to appease the spirits, today it's winter you swear
 two days ago it was summer
 the berries you found in the woods have a strange metallic taste
 their juices stain your mouth red. you keep eating them anyway
 .nobody ages. nobody ages. nobody ages. what year is it?
 you keep bringing offerings in the old community center. honey
 milk, wine, peaches, dead animals. there are never enough offerings
 the fruit bats that live in the small cave near your house leave fruit
 for you. they bring you out of season fruit, exotic fruit, fruit that comes
 from halfway across the world, fruit that you've never seen before
 .the wizard granted you the power to understand the spirits that live
 in the old community center. now you wish he hadn't.
 every night when you get home, you lock the door and close the
 windows. every morning when you wake up, your cat is somehow
 inside the house
 .the train passes through stardew valley sometimes, but never
 stops. you can hear howls coming from it.
 you try talking to the people in the village, but they always seem to
 be repeating the same things. "do you have any blueberries?", asks
 lewis for the 14th time this month
 there are things in the mines. don't go into the mines
 we're insulated from the rest of the world here savs demetrius
 now that you think of it, you have never received a letter or a phone
 call from the outside world. is there even an outside world?
 there is a bath house, north of the town. there is never anyone
 there, but the electricity works and the water runs. when you enter
 the locker room, there is a bathing suit just your size waiting for you
 the water in the big bath is milky. you can't see the bottom. you enter
 it anyway. when you exit, you feel happy and energised. you have
 nothing to worry about. come back soon!
 . the bus to calico desert is out of service. the road to calico desert is
 out of service. do not go to calico desert. do not ask about calico
 desert. do no think about calico desert. there is no calico desert.
 you are out late at night, gathering berries. at exactly two am,
 something knocks you out. you wake up in your bed the following
 morning. don't think about it. go to sleep
 you try staying up past two am the following night, only to be
 knocked out again. go to sleep. go to sleep. go to sleep
 you have been here for a couple of weeks, or maybe for decades
 nothing changes. you can't die. you can't die. you can't die
