Snark, hipster doofus advertising, paranoia, and Lite Brite terror alerts.

This has been blogged about ad nauseum already, but I just want to say one thing about how the city of Boston was terrorized yesterday by a bunch of Lite Brites., on second thought. I don't have anything to say about that.

Let's look at some art.

..................Jean-Honore Fragonard: The Swing, 1766

A lovely scene of frivolity and fun, non? A little too fanciful for me, definitely not something I would put up in my would that look next to my Bauhaus couch? Stupid, that's how. But full of fun nonetheless. I like how the young gentleman is getting a nice view up the lady's skirts - I bet this caused a ruckus when it was first unveiled. By today's standards, it's very tame, and yet...there is something very erotic about it.

Them Rococo fellas, they knew how to rock.

Looking at that picture my train of thought ended in gangbang but thats just me.
I googled the bomb alert or otherwise known as how to mess up people's day, I've experienced several, not good when you're trying to catch a bus or have to stand outside yer house for 3 hours in the cold until the police blow something up.
