alternatehistories alternatehistories1

Over the weekend, I elbowed through hipster crowds in this unusual late-September heat to view pretzel earrings and graphic tees at Crafty Bastard. I don’t know why there aren’t more things like this in DC. Let’s fix that, crafters!

One of my favorite stands though was Alternate Histories. A T-Rex in Botticelli’s Birth of Venus? A dinosaur interrupting the serenity of The Grande Jatte? Sign me up. Turns out this guy also has a book coming out in October. I mean, you already know how I feel about an altered Venus

atlas

farnese atlas 1

Zeus made Atlas hold the heavens after the Titans lost to the Olympians.

This looks like a globe, right? That whole “world on your shoulders” mantra? From Atlas, right? Wrong. This is a celestial sphere, so, school your friends with that little piece of knowledge.

The Farnese Atlas is the oldest sculpture of the Titan, and is a second-century Roman marble copy of a Greek original.

Go ahead and see another Atlas at Rockefeller Center.

So, I moved into a new apartment, which means that I’ve basically thrown out everything that was all nice and right with my old place, and plan to burn a bunch of money on new things.

Well, some money. I’ll just go ahead and add these $140+ shower curtains from Anthropologie onto my Amazon Wishlist…hint hint.

Georges Seurat completed Sunday Afternoon on the Island of the Grand Jatte in 1886. He was 27. You know what I considered an artistic accomplishment at 27? Marble painting my nails.
