I do not know how half sour pickles taste, but I am about to find out how they taste alone and in bloody marys.
thru Sept 2:
“The Civil War and American Art”
The Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1000 Fifth Ave., NYC (at 82nd Street)
“This major loan exhibition considers how American artists responded to the Civil War and its aftermath. Landscapes and genre scenes—more than traditional history paintings—captured the war’s impact on the American psyche. The works of art on display trace the trajectory of the conflict and express the intense emotions that it provoked: unease as war became inevitable, optimism that a single battle might end the struggle, growing realization that fighting would be prolonged, enthusiasm and worries alike surrounding emancipation, and concerns about how to reunify the nation after a period of grievous division. The exhibition proposes significant new readings of many familiar masterworks—some sixty paintings and eighteen photographs created between 1852 and 1877—including outstanding landscapes by Frederic E. Church and Sanford R. Gifford, paintings of life on the battlefront and the home front by Winslow Homer and Eastman Johnson, and photographs by Timothy H. O’Sullivan and George N. Barnard.”
Today in things that make my day: Colin Firth and Ben Barnes act out the scene from Eddie Izzard’s bit about British film on the set of a movie (I believe Easy Virtue).
If you’re an Izzard fan this is a must-watch.

So the universe is not quite as you thought it was.
You’d better rearrange your beliefs, then. Because you certainly can’t rearrange the universe.
