Monday means arty links, right? Right!

Art: The work of Femke Hiemstra is gorgeous.

Music: A sad story about the decline of the college record store. I went and checked on my college store, and sure enough, the Schoolkids in Athens is gone. Noooo! I can't even begin to calculate how much time I spent in that store, in both its locations (oldschool OU alumni may remember when it was next to Casa Nueva). Haffa's is still around, apparently, so that's good.

More music: Talented pianists tend to go mad. Maybe it's good I stopped piano lessons as a teenager. (Then again, I wasn't all that talented.)

Film: Hey, drive-ins are making a comeback!

Literature: Could you date someone who didn't read the same sort of books you do? (I think this is something that really only happens with English majors, but I may be wrong.)

Architecture: When I first read about the proposed new design for the Eiffel Tower, I thought it had to be an April Fool's joke. Apparently it is indeed a hoax, which is a relief.

Then again, who's to say you're not ...

Strike that. Too easy, even given my inability to resist the cheap and obvious.
