Ever found it difficult to get excited about classic sculpture?
Just couldn’t relate??
Well, hold on to your fig leaf — Today I Learned Something New, a UK-based website, has brought together the past and present in their feature…
‘Classical sculptures dressed like hipsters’
Gone is the overwhelming expanse of chalk-white skin, the blank stare, the disproportionately small family jewels. These male models’ newly casual look and ‘tude would do any catalog or magazine ad proud.
And if they’re quiet on a date…well, that’s really to be expected.

My spectator-only relationship with tattoos continues as I watch more and more episodes of Best Ink on Oxygen.
Hey — some people watch morning talk shows; I watch Entertainment OnDemand.
Maybe that’s why I have started noticing tattoos on people in the street… and on television… and in random Google searches.
Get a load of this girl.
I may have commitment issues with tats, but I think hers will stand the test of time.
She chose right.

When I was in Singapore this past weekend, I thought about flying on to Australia. It’s only a seven-hour flight.
This guy made that voyage by water…in the opposite direction.
Rubber Duck, a ginormous piece of conceptual art by Florentijin Hofman, was last spied bobbing about in Sydney’s Darling Harbor. Today the inflatable duck, which measures 46 feet tall and 55 feet long, arrived in Victoria Harbour in Hong Kong for a month’s stay with a little help from a much smaller tug boat.
Let’s call it a Duck Boat — it’s earned it!

This NCAA Final is stressful to watch! To keep from biting my nails, I created this cherry pop art print. (The cherries are on my pj’s.) Inspiration comes in the darnedest places.

Seems like we spend a lot of time these days debating what’s in the food we eat….and depending on the day, landing on different sides.
It almost kills the taste.
Photographer Caren Alpert takes a different — or should I say much closer – view. She uses an electron microscope to look at the foods we eat to reveal different landscapes, textures and patterns.
She makes the ordinary exotic. And maybe it’s just lunchtime…
But she’s making me hungry.

What does a migraine feel like?
This is just one example of the mind boggling work of Swedish photographer and Photoshop guru Erik Johansson.
And the most mind boggling thing? He’s only 21 years old.
Now my head really hurts.

I’ve never liked coffee.
But this blend is beary, beary tempting.
