A very happy 60th (!) birthday to my Dad! He and my Mom are spending the week celebrating in Chautauqua, New York (which is only our favorite place in the whole wide world). It goes without saying that I wish I could be there, but I look forward to our phone call later today. Plus I know my Mom has some fun surprises up her sleeve! Love you, Dad!

That point in August when you feel like everyone is on holiday except you.

While I agree with most of these (especially the last two), I do think everyone should see the Mona Lisa at least once in their lifetime (go when the Louvre is open late on Wednesday and Friday evenings). Plus the Veronese painting in the same room is not to be missed.

Ladies with an Attitude. Fellows that Were in the Mood.

GIFS of all the Hollywood icons in Madonna’s “Vogue.”

Don’t just stand there, let’s get to it. Strike a pose, there’s nothing to it. Vogue, vogue.

I’ve had this song memorized since I was 9.

Swedish Chef, Animal and Beaker are probably the best options for Beastie Boys stand-ins

I’m miserable and on the couch for the third day in a row with a summer cold and this made me laugh.

For the first time in more than a decade, the Metropolitan Museum’s seventeen van Gogh paintings are all on view at once. Peter Schjeldahl reflects on his visit:

“I wasn’t alone with them. You seldom are with van Goghs. Dozens of people were looking, while, in a neighboring room, one or two or no viewers at a time paused among twenty-two paintings by Cezanne.”

My all-time favorite Van Gogh.
