My Ding-A-Ling

Chuck Berry... some might say at his best. You might not have known he was an early proponent of gay rights otherwise. I also like how this is the UK version.

K.231 in B-flat Major

I named this post "K.231 in B-flat Major" because I thought Lech mich im Arsch might be a bit rude as a title... even if it is in German*. But then you might have already heard of this lovely little canon by Mozart:

Sorry it's cut short, but it was the only version I could find that was sung by a decent sounding choir as a canon.

And just for my amusement, here is an... um... inventive rendition of K.233 in B-flat Major, Leck mir den Arsch fein recht schön sauber:

(skip to 1:11 to avoid the awkward solo and hear the three voice part)

Scholars believe that K.233 might not actually be Mozart's music. We're pretty sure that he wrote the lyrics though, and these are some filthy lyrics.

*But for some reason I think obscenities in Latin are visually acceptable.

Notice My Flowers

Music, Pink and Blue II, 1919

... when you took time to really notice my flowers you hung all your own associations with flowers on my flower and you write about my flower as if I think and see what you think and see of the flower - and I don't.

- Georgia O'Keeffe, 1943


Anyway, I was going to post this picture yesterday, but then I found that ancient graffiti and decided to delay the art lesson. THEN I found out that yesterday was actually Georgia O'Keeffe's B-Day. So... happy belated Georgia! It's been weird!

Oh Bosch!

Oh Hieronymus!

A very small portion of The Garden of Earthly Delights

Did you know that 16th century depictions of cherries in art represent pride? I can't find any reference from art history as to what people having sex in a giant oyster means though...
