A Little Michelangelo, A Little Music

Helloo, hellooooo! Hope everyone had a good weekend. Here in NYC, the rains are a’comin. Right now it’s misty, gauzy, and soft, and I love how the birds don’t give a damn. They’re flying around outside my window, chirping, singing, have a grand old time. A loud, squawking blue jay is sitting on a branch acting like he’s all that, “Yeah, I’m colorful. What are ya gonna do about it, bitch?”

I thought I’d share two funny Michelangelo-related stories. 500 years after his death and he still inspires people, to an obsessive degree in some cases. A man in Abilene, Texas has caused a minor uproar by installing a replica of “David” on his front lawn, The neighbors are none too amused. Penises make people crazy 😉 Another guy, in the UK, has painted his home to recreate the Sistine Chapel.  For some reason he used the face of British comedian Russell Brand for the image of Jesus. Is it just me or is that a little disturbing? 😆

Let’s have a little music for “Music Monday” and start the week off right. This is a great track that I reblogged recently on my Tumblr. It’s Nina Simone singing “In The Dark” from the 1967 album Nina Simone Sings the Blues. Incredible vocals, and sexy lyrics – “In the dark, it’s just you and I . . .”

    I think they should be forced to destroy the statue as a travesty of Michelangelo’s work. It’s a rubbish copy!

    But it’s funny that people can still get upset about these things!
