I don't see any sheep there do you? Naaaaaah!
I as tend to do often, I owed Chelsea Baker a caption. She continues to just crank out fun captions for everyone, and I don't mind being in debt to her, even though it seems like every 4th caption or so I make for her! The photo is great, and the model is so attractive that I could have made it about anything and it'd still come out at least OK.
Living in New England, it seems that EVERY town has at least one museum or historical society, and they are all set up in a "DON'T TOUCH THAT!"manner. so when I saw the bed and furniture, I thought that would be a good way to make a change BUT it would happen from the display, NOT due to the rules of the museum curator. Those guys are usually too busy drinking chicory anyway!
As a big fan of Antique's Roadshow, I threw in some catchphrases that they would use, along with an appearance of "credenza" and "Jenkins" and apparently he got promoted to King! Good for him!
The sleepwalking part of the tour was something I actually feel like I did, as for my art class back in college we had to visit the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and answer questions from a worksheet. Its a HUGE place and the only time I could actually afford to go was on a Wednesday night after 4 PM when it was free to get in (which of course they don't do anymore!) It was my first time there, and somehow I got enough answers done, but I couldn't recall ANYTHING I had seen except for a triptych from Giotto (which I loved) and passing though the Egyptian wing knowing I wanted to go back again. I've been back quite a few times (I try to go at least once a year or two) and I still make sure I find a minute or two to go back and view the Giotto triptych and the MFA's great collection of textiles and furniture.
Why do I bring this up? Well, it ties in nicely with the caption I made a few weeks ago, but also because Helena gave me a "compliment" of sorts on Caitlyn's blog. Caitlyn had made a caption based on a discussion from my post, "Victoria's Taking Aim" between Helena and I about Satan. She said that Caitlyn was Rembrandt and I was Van Gogh. I don't take offense at being compared to an unbalanced, self-mutilating genius who wasn't appreciated in his own lifetime, but I see myself more as an Andy Warhol .. taking what others have already done within pop culture and hopefully elevating the commonplace to the status of revolutionary. Nah, fuck that! I'm just a weird goth-punk-metalhead pseudo-intellectual gadabout making pastiche works involving hot chicks and text describing how they became hot chicks .. and I have no problems admitting that! Thanks Helena for making me think about my work and thanks for brightening my day with replies to what I have to say on a consistent basis. Its much appreciated!
My mom would've been 62 today. Was a bit bummed this morning, until this song came on the radio. Fun. is a great "new" band and I can't recommend their CD, "Some Nights" enough. I heard about them when they were opening for Panic! at the Disco, and anytime an indie band achieves success, I am extremely happy, even more so when its on a small label like Fueled by Ramen. Anyway, this is just an AWESOME song! Here's another great one from them that really gets my blood flowing!
DISCUSSION QUESTION: Who is your favorite artist/painter? What piece by them is your favorite?
