For fellow fans of Dr. Turin's "Duftnotes":
If you ever only read the 2005-6 articles (the defunct pdf, or on Scribd.com), or
If you enjoyed the 2009-10 articles that were linked to in previous threads by Narcus,
And, like me, never bothered digging through the NZZ Folio website for more,
Then rejoice, for...
A complete archive from 2003-2010 can be read online on this blog.
Whoever created the blog, where ever you are: thank you, thank you, thank you! It's a real treat.
Anakin: What was that all about?
Obi-Wan: Well, R2 has been...
Anakin: No loose wire jokes.
Obi-Wan: Did I say anything?
Anakin: He's trying.
Obi-Wan: I didn't say anything!
Wonderful find-- thanks!
Cool - thanks!
Thank you for the link!

This is truly delightful! This will occupy hours of my work-time.
This is wonderful! Thanks for posting the link. I had a link to another website but it was super slow.
Oh that is just wonderful ! Thank you sooo much . I loved Luca Turin's blog.
Mr. Turin- if you read this - I am a great fan !
For sale. Carnal Flower and Vero Profumo Onda.
Thanks for the link. I've read them all before but I always like reading them again.
Aristotle said the greatest thing by far is to be a master of metaphor, and Luca Turin has mastered metaphor as well as any writer ever has.
Cool! Wouldn't mind a sticky.
Whoa, thank you so much! I've been looking for the full archive!
How does sunshine smell like?
Then, on September 7th, we were extremely pleased to hear directly from the author:

Thanks for finding and posting, a real resource.
This is wonderful, thank you so much. It's getting so late here but I think I have to stay up later than I wanted because I HAVE to start reading the archive!
Here's a link for the text of the 7 month period ( June 2005- Jan 2006 ) of Duffnotes mentioned in the OP. Unlike the link above, this one includes all the reader comments and Turin's responses. The inclusion of which makes the thing "only" 548 pages long ! One can understand why the full run of posts shown above leaves out the comments.
For those who are gluttons for punishment, or simply Turin fans, this link also includes a search function in a toolbar at the bottom of the page.
Fantastic! Thanks for posting...!
