Man I would spend the shit out of 2 dimes to get this thing.  I hope there is a B plot line with that bizarre pink haired doll getting in some adventure that ends in murder.

GABBIANI, Anton Domenico
Portrait of Four Servants of the Medici Court
c. 1684
Oil on canvas, 205 x 140 cm
Galleria Palatina (Palazzo Pitti), Florence

Obviously the Medici’s were awful spoiled people, but this manages to encompass racism, sexism, possible beastiality, and all around weirdness in one wonderfully crafted work of art.

Awesome woodcut by Munch.  If you stare at this long enough while listening to Bela Lugosi’s Dead it will turn into an A-ha “Take on Me” type animated situation, but much creepier.  You don’t want these sonsabitches smashing themselves into flesh and blood creatures in your hallway.  Trust me.

Imperial group as Mars and Venus

Between AD 120 and 140
Reworked c. AD 170-175

This group reproduced the features of the of the Emperor Hadrian and his wife Sabina, until her head was replaced during the late second century by another portrait, probably of Lucilla,e wife of Lucius Verus. It reflects the Hellenizing taste and the neoclassical style in fashion during this period. Hadrian (117-138 CE), the first Roman emperor to be portrayed as a god during his own lifetime, is depicted as Mars, god of war.

The Louvre

It’s ok. It happens to every god once in a while. We’ll try again in a few millenia.

There’s a handful of things I miss about living in New York.  One of them is definitely the Met. Maybe on of the best things that ever happened to me was when I discovered I could pay whatever I wanted to get in.  When I was still working at the Chelsea Barnes and Noble and barely able to pay rent I felt no shame going on a Saturday and only paying $5.00 to spend an afternoon wandering one of the world’s great museums.  

I also miss drinking with the knowledge I’m taking the N train home and late night pizza delivery.  Neither of which will ever exist in Maine.

Study for “Young and His Daughter”

Pierre-Antoine-Augustin Vafflard (French, Paris 1777–1837 Paris)

Date: ca. 1804

The figure identified as the daughter in the title of the Salon painting was, in fact, Young’s step-daughter Elizabeth, who died in Lyons in 1736, when they and their respective spouses were en route to Nice. In this macabre scene, Young is shown carrying her corpse to the only cemetery in town that would receive her for burial, that of the Protestants, having first been refused at the Catholic cemetery.

I’ll Be Around

YLT = the best and most consistent band of my life.  Still making great records 3 decades into their remarkable career, and I’ve bought everything they’ve done since I first saw the video for Tom Courtenay on 120 Minutes back in 1995.  They’ve never let me down.  Not once.  

I just jinxed their next album

Kindness is not what a dagger wants

— Borges


This one looks like it depicts a “modern woman” of the time using the 16th Century version of the morning after pill. Probably NOT provided by the Pope.
