Happy Birthday Marilyn Monroe!


Here is an interesting story about a letter she wrote to her doctor when she was committed in 1961... yeah. Classy though. Classy, classy, classy.

Baby Got Back

Since the last post wasn't very antique:

Postcard c. 1900

You other brothers can't deny... etc.


Ron Jeremy is Totally in This, I Promise.

I admit this isn't exactly antique... but some of it is vintage. Anyway, in a few years the vintage stuff will be antique and the newer stuff will be vintage. Yes... so for your entertainment: Pornography without the actual pornography!



And it's a cute little song. ^_^

Art Whores No. 3

Let's have a frank discussion about the "patronage" of ballet in the 19th Century:


Or we can just put quotations around the words "patronage" and let everybody draw their own conclusions. There's even a John in a tux in the background for Degas' sake!

Shameless Plug

Do you know any Undercover Mexicans?


An undercover Mexican is a person that is of Mexican heritage, but is generally considered ambiguously ethnic or white or anything else other than Mexican (perhaps Pakistani or Indian even). Anthony Quinn, James Roday, me, and the majority of my family are good examples.

If you do know any, and feel like sharing, please submit a picture and the back story of an undercover Mexican you might know and/or love (famous or not, we all brothers undercover) to my other blog "Undercover Mexicans". I'd prefer a picture of the undercover Mexican not looking Mexican AND looking pretty Mexican... check out the other blog if you want examples. You can also submit any other bizarre Mexican related things for shits and giggles to le.haricot@gmail.com as well. Just title your submission "Undercover Mexican." Thanks!

More Music


It reminds me of those socialist workers murals in the 30s... and you can see their boobies.

I don't know what it is...

but I think I like it.

Vintage Colin Firth

Vintage Colin Firth was very hot.


Colin Firth is also just very hot in general... yes.

Congratulations to Mr. Firth and The King's Speech! They've totally had my vote since at least 1936. 'Nuff said.

Cocaine Blues

Here's a little ditty you might have heard of:



It was originally recorded in 1947 by "Red" Arnal ("Red" is also the one who wrote it). Somewhere along the lines Johnny Cash got ahold of it so... you know... awesome.

Vintage Paul Newman

Vintage Paul Newman was kind of h... the most attractive man ever!

Another Fragonard

Wooooo! Even more rococo!

Young Woman Playing with Dog

I know, I know. This one is similar to the last Fragonard. I felt like the blog needed some color, and it's also just really cute! (equally as filthy too... look! Boobs!)

The King's Speech

Back when I posted this I hadn't seen the The King's Speech yet. I didn't even know it was coming out! I just noticed the vintage hotness and decided it should be explicitly pointed out. Anyway, here is an actual speech from the king himself:



So hot. Go see the movie. It is now one of my absolute favorites.


Vintage Jane Fonda

Vintage Jane Fonda...

Albert Arthur Allen

Dude... there is no wikipedia page for this man! That makes me sad. There is a Salon.com article on him from 2001 though.


Basically he took a bunch of nudie pictures of flappers in the 20s. This is probably the only clothed photo he did, but it's my favorite so... no boobs today. Sorry.

Oh yeah! He was also arrested for mailing obscene things between states and is kind of a civil rights/ censorship martyr. Rock rock on.

Vintage Lew Wallace

Neatorama just brought my attention to a tumblr spot called...


( You're right... I just want him for his beard.)

Bound to be some vintage hotness up in there. 'Nuff said.

Put the Blame on Mame

According to Wikipedia, it was Gypsy Rose Lee's birthday on my birthday! IMDB says it's in February though... so I split the difference and waited as long as I could:


I even like this one better than Rita Hayworth's.

Adriaen Brouwer

Woooo! 17th century Flanders!

The Bitter Tonic

Ok, it's not nearly as awesome as rococo, but Adriaen Brouwer did like to hang out in bars. Well... he liked to hang out in "ale houses." But now kids over there hang out in "coffee houses." Intoxicated debauchery as a commonality is the only point I'm trying to make here.

Vintage Stephen Hawking

Art Whores No. 2

Here is another great painting about ladies of the night and other important artistic endeavors.


Dig the cat on the right, yo. This one is brought to you by Èdouard Manet... and kind of Titian. And maybe even a little bit Goya.
