“Turing was not very interested in programming the computer to play conventional pieces of music: he used the different notes to indicate what was going on in the computer—one note for ‘job finished’, others for ‘digits overflowing in memory’, ‘error when transferring data from the magnetic drum’, and so on. Running one of Turing’s programs must have been a noisy business, with different musical notes and rhythms of clicks enabling the user to ‘listen in’ (as he put it) to what the computer was doing. He left it to someone else, though, to program the first complete piece of music.”

“America’s movie and film archive is located in an underground bunker in Culpepper, Virginia. The bunker was originally a gold storage unit that doubled as a fallout shelter for the U.S. president and his cabinet during the Cold War. Today, the Library of Congress stores all manner of film here. Archivist George Willeman is in charge of the nitrate vaults, where fragile (and combustible) old films sit undisturbed and well preserved.”

- Ruth Norman, a.k.a. Archangel Uriel, and some Unariuns dressed up for a psychodrama.
“In the early ‘80s, American channel surfers began to encounter some pretty out-there public-access programming from a California collective known as Unarius. Led by a woman named Ruth Norman, a warm and maternal figure who appeared on-screen dressed in a variety of fluffy, sparkly, over-the-top costumes, the videos were known by their creators as psychodramas. The narratives often included aliens, UFOs, and historical settings, and the performers appeared to be making up their lines as they went along.”
