Luke and I were looking at Hieronymus Bosch’s painting The Garden of Earthly Delights and discovered, much to our amusement, music written upon the posterior of one of the many tortured denizens of the rightmost panel of the painting which is intended to represent Hell. I decided to transcribe it into modern notation, assuming the second line of the staff is C, as is common for chants of this era.
so yes this is LITERALLY the 600-years-old butt song from hell
Jan van Eyck, Portrait of a Man in a Turban, 1433.
look at that awesome baby holding himself up. that baby at merely 4 weeks old alrady had the strength to support himself with one arm, some thing most men cant even do today. despite being an infant he already has his own statue dedicated to him. some things you should know about this baby: His name? adam smith, CREATOR of capitalism. his first love? ration and science. and one other thing. this baby believes in god with all his heart. if you still cant guess who it is… that baby was albert einstein.
I recently read an interview from a local celebrity and she claimed that she likes Victorian era stuff. However, upon further reading, she said that she really likes those 18th century stuff including Marie Antoinette and her fashion. And I was like… girl, Marie Antoinette is NOT Victorian. In fact, she was already dead (d.1793) before the Victorian era started (1837-1901).
For further clarifications, I’d suggest you go check out That’s Not Victorian. The blog master’s doing a good job on identifying mislabeled posts :)
AMEN TO THIS
