I'm sleepy after a dinner with the families A-------d and Bernstein so I won't actually write anything this evening, only point you to a wonderfully amusing site that you may not have seen before. celery + gravity = art is a collection of pin-up images from (mostly) the 1950s, which feature a rather strange fetish: women whose underwear falls down around their ankles while they stand helplessly with their arms full of packages. Words can not do it justice. Go look for yourself.
The site is done by a gentleman, James Lileks we presume, who takes cultural artifacts like these odd odd pinups and presents them together with hilarious commentary, to great effect. Other examples (besides the porn) include '70s decorating magazines (Interior Desecrations) and comic books from the '40s. Most notable, and what brought Mr. Lileks to the attention of the world some years ago, is his work on ancient, disgusting food. It should not be missed.
