Subway Song


Good morning, world!  Monday's are my day off and I couldn't think of a better way to start (yes, I slept in a bit) than with this video I saw on Gawker.  In an advertising spot for their local classical station, the Copehagen Philharmonic  performed Grieg's Peer Gynt to some unsuspecting passengers on the metro.

Look at the smiles!

Move Closer


Spring has already done sprung at the John Cleary Gallery and for our last show Catherine and I decided to put up a "Masters of Photography" wall that is appropriately nature themed.  You've got your Ansel Adams, Robert Mapplethorpe, Henry Gilpin and finally Brett Weston:

Full Wall

For only $130,000 all this can be yours!


Now, Catherine (@clearygallery) is really quite Twitter savvy and has been known rub tweets with the best of them, including Emmy© award winning actress, Holland Taylor (@hollandtaylor).  My fellow Texans should note that, in addition to her stint on Two and a Half Men, she has also crossed the country in recent years portraying former Texas governor Ann Richards to fabulous reviews.  Click here to watch a clip and here to read more about the play itself!

Many people may not know it, but the inspiration for one of Brett Weston's most famous works is la diva herself and we got a hold of his first artist proof.  Don't believe me? Let's take a closer look, shall we:


You betta WORK that bridge, Holland!!!


Oh and also, as a bit of Twitter self-promotion myself… you may now follow me at @ub_sessed :)
