do the metropolitan glide  
The Metropolitan Museum of Art has a show up now called Framing a Century: Master Photographers, 1840-1940. Running 'til September 1st, it focuses on the thirteen masters from the new art form's first hundred years.

Here's one from the show by the Hungarian photographer Brassaï who spent years photographing the nightlife on the streets of Paris. It's called "Introductions at Suzy's."

I love the way fashions change. They have no bosoms yet plenty of elsewhere. I live for the day my shape becomes the epitome of chic.......

I love this pic, especially the woman shielding her eyes.

Funny how the entry is entitled "Do the metropolitan glide," yet your "Listening to" section doesn't list Tom Waits.

Actually, it's not that funny, I guess. My mind is often full of random Tom Waits lyrics.

It would have been freaky if that song actually came on while I was talking about the Met...
