A Moment for Art

There's a new biography out on my favorite painter, Modigliani.  It was through his art that I learned of his fascinatingly short, Charlie Sheen-like life.  Quite a fellow, I'd say.

Never heard of this guy but I'm not surprised by his story. European "artists" are so venerated it's sort of creepy, and they get away with murder. That's one of the differences between European and American kids. The Europeans all wanted to be Mozart or Picasso and American kids wanted to be Eddie Van Halen. They've still got that Franz Liszt artist superhero thing going on.

That ain't Rachel, that's me. It must have automatically signed in under my bidnez address.

CW - Have you seen the movie "Modigliani" with Andy Garcia and Eva Herzigova?

Plus, I wanted to put a buffer between Hammer and the next person who was bound to jump on his dual-gender identity. Not that there's anything wrong with that of course.

BTW, Hammer, long time with the same picture. Both the duration and appeal are somewhat out of character. You feeling okay?
