Renaissance weirdness


Do you ever feel like someone’s trying to tell you something? Like the Fates or whatever? Here’s the deal:

1. Books about the Italian Renaissance. They’ve been falling in my lap like crazy and one leads to another. Just started a biography of Lucrezia Borgia and realized I recognized about 3/4 of the names in the genealogy. All the Borgias and Estes and Sforzas…
2. Went looking for books on Caravaggio (he’s Baroque, not Rennaisance) and instead found an awesome cache of Renaissance art goodness. Renaissance Lives, Michelangelo and the Pope’s Ceiling, etc etc…
3. Flipping channels after work and find…slides of Florence on the BCC channel. There’s an art history lecture on there that I watch. Got all stoked about the Neptune fountain that I remember vividly from the Piazza della Signoria (where they burned Savonarola in 1498!)

Alright. So it’s not exactly a burning bush. But I think I need to quit my job and move to Florence to study art history.

btw, this blog passed the 1.5 million views mark last week. It’s a mere pimple on the ass of Major Nelson’s blog traffic…but kinda cool for me.

    I get that feeling all the time.  Usually when my wife’s mouth is moving.  I mean, WHAT is going on THERE!  🙂

    Congrats on passing the 1.5 million view mark!Having visited Florence myself, I can safely say that you can do a whole lot worse than living there.  If you haven’t been there, I highly recommend a trip.

    Mike, don’t be a doof. We all know you adore your wife.

    Loki, I was in Florence for about 6 hours in June. I didn’t wait in line to see David because I’d been up all night and couldn’t stay upright that long. I was also too cheap to pay to get into the Medici palace museum. Stupid! Stupid! Stupid!

    Interesting, this isn’t the first time you say you will move to Italy you know?
