Fragonard No. 5

Wooo! No.5!

Le Verrou

Ce n'est pas Chanel, évidemment.

Saturday Super-imposition


There's a parfumeur in Paris called Fragonard too. Apparently, Fragonard smells like "white flowers and mellow amber" and not ass and over starched lace. Too bad.

Liber Est A Cul

Once again, Neatorama provides all the content of my blog:

The lovely book Images on the Edge: The Margins of Medieval Art, explores the little doodles monks would add to text that they translated and copied day in and day out:

Depictions of sexual consort are frequent, among men and women, among various species of animals, and enough other combinations to make even contemporary readers blush.

Somebody get me this book!

"Frenchies Do It Better!"

Here is a lovely water color from 1910 that a lovely friend of mine left on my wall, because, "When I saw it I thought of youuuuuu!"...

Don't I have the most thoughtful of friends? (Thanks Des! ^_^)

I Am Half Way to Concord.

Ben Franklin had 220 ways to say, "He's drunk." Need anymore proof that this man is a genius? No. You don't.

But he was pretty hillarious:

Something Sweet for Valentine's

This was one of my favorite cartoons when I was little:

It's from 1935... so there's always gonna be something off. My favorite is the "Angel's Food Cakes." Then the "Devil's Food Cakes." And "Miss Jello." And when "the donut's ass falls off in the coffee"...  Oh 1930s!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Vintage Tesla... again.

I realized that I didn't make an entry for Thomas Edison's bday (2/11)...

That's cuz Edison was never as hot as this.  Or this. I mean, why else would you have David Bowie play this man? 'Nuff said.

Sissy Man Blues

"Lord, I woke up this mornin' withy my pork-grinding business in my hand.
Said I woke up this mornin', Pork-grinding business in my hand.
Lord, if you can't send me no woman, please send me some sissy man."

I'm sure we've all felt that way at one time or another... yes. Gotta love the 30s.

Thank you everlasting blort for pointing this out... and for everything really.
