Karaoke: Son of a Preacher Man

Shower: Gonna Get Over You - Sara Bareilles

What about you?

Hmm, I haven’t done karaoke for awhile, but my best friend and I spent our drives to and from college belting out Celine Dion and Disney songs. Also that classic, classic duet, “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life.”

Shower tunes include much excellent 80s music and whatever is currently stuck in my head.

Hey Tumblr followers!
We are proud to announce a new Tumblr webpage created by the SHSU Special Collections and University Archives Departments’ intern Amanda Chang, which spotlights SHSU Sports teams from seasons past. The “Sports @ Sam” Tumblr updates each Monday and Friday with a new photograph showcasing athletes from the 1980s, ‘70s, ‘60s, and beyond. Many of the photographs come from a recently digitized collection of color slides dating from the late 1960s to the early 1980s, which feature mostly baseball, basketball, football, golf, and softball photographs. Along with these photographs, older archived photos will also be posted.
                Athletes have been playing for Sam Houston State for over 100 years, starting out as the “Normals” when SHSU was known as a Normal Institute, and later switching to the “Bearkats.” Throughout the years our sports programs have developed into the strong teams which represent our University today. Our sports programs have grown along with the University, and this is reflected in many of the photographs that will be posted on Sports @ Sam. Not only do these photographs feature the athletes themselves, but also the fields and gymnasiums, and later stadiums and coliseums, that each team called home.
                Sports @ Sam offers an opportunity to look back on the teams that created a solid foundation for today’s student athletes. Sports @ Sam can be found at shsusportscoll.tumblr.com or @shsusportscoll, and the Special Collections and University Archives Departments’ Tumblr can be found at nglspecialcollectionsandarchives.tumblr.com or nglspecialcollectionsandarchives

An illustration from Georg Agricola’s De re metallica (On Metals).
From our catalog record: “Agricola’s De re metallica (On Metals) is one of the first technological books of modern times, covering the mining industry, metallurgical processes, and the manufacture of glass, described as one of the ’solidified juices’.”
That’s not all it covers … An illustration from Georg Agricola’s De re metallica (On Metals).
