I just happened across this series entitled After Master by Yin Xin. By far my faourite is the Birth of Venus. Yin has taken classic master paintings and replaced their Western subjects with Chinese ones. LOVES IT. 

  • Top is Birth of Venus by Boticelli.
  • Dejeuner Sur L’Herbe by Manet.
  • Venus and the Lute Player by Titian
  • Mona Lisa by Da Vinci

Contemporary Art Week!

Xin Yin

After Master

If anyone has an official website for this artist, let me know and I will add it here.

Seriously though if you’ve never listened to Jesus Christ Superstar that’s definitely a thing you should do

Oh look a link to Amazon’s mp3 page for the 2012 remaster of the 1970 London Concept Album version who left that here

This entire album is perfect. I grew up with these records, and it’s still the definitive version for me, though I’ve loved all of the subsequent ones.

Oh we also have this album on vinyl, if memory serves. Or maybe we have the original Broadway cast on vinyl…? We have a version on vinyl as well, but I’m not sure which anymore and it’s too late for me to go digging through the family’s record collection haha

But yeah I pretty much dig any version of Jesus Christ Superstar, this one is just going to be my favorite always, I adore it…

5/4 time is an odd time signature but not too bad if the tempo is laid back, 5/8 is infinitely worse (as is 7/8 WHO DOES THAT)

Mixed meter (6/8|3/4) is kind of fun but SO ANNOYING when the alternating pattern is broken AMERICA I’M LOOKING AT YOU SO HARD

The Rite of Spring apparently also uses mixed meter (3/16|5/16 in places haha what even is that I mean I know what it means but damn, Stravinsky, dude)

I’ve played a song that was 3+3+2/8 time and no that’s not 8/8 it was 3+3+2/8 like the measures were subdivided into 3/8, 3/8, and 2/8 and that’s not really mixed meter so I’m assuming that’s why the odd notation was there except the lower number indicates which kind of note receives the beat so… I dunno (apparently this is “additive meter” which I did not know was a thing and Wikipedia notes that Bartók did it a lot which makes sense as this example is from Bartók)

Music

What even is music

Oh hey let’s also share “Everything’s Alright” from the 1970 album of Jesus Christ Superstar

Fun fact this song is in 5/4 time

Oh yeah it was Palm Sunday on uh… Sunday

So if you haven’t listened to Jesus Christ Superstar you should because it starts pretty close to it Palm Sunday (I sort of see it as starting the night before Palm Sunday and then we’re for sure on Palm Sunday with the track “This Jesus Must Die” BUT HEY that’s just me)

Here’s “Heaven on Their Minds” from the 1970 pre-musical staging album because I’m a goddamned fucking hipster this was the version we have on CD and that I grew up with so it’s the one I like the most

when i was a kid I thought the dark in ‘tall dark and handsome’ meant dark skin and I was always confused when people would use the phrase to describe whitey mcwhiterson

For years I’ve thought about my personal aesthetic and maybe I should consider cultivating my look into “that dude who appears frequently in Kaneoya Sachiko’s work” like I’ve got the eyebags down pat that’s the hard part right

It’s late and I’m tired and I still haven’t been able to pick a pattern or anything for my art classes it’s a tad annoying

And don’t get me wrong: Even the Holograms are pretty hardcore. The theme song may offer fashion and fame, but it also promises adventure and excitement, and Jem delivers. The Holograms rock amazing outfits and play stadium shows for adoring fans—and on the way, build and race Formula One cars, rescue the president from supervillains, find mythical cities in the Himalayas, and escape from an active volcano. As role models go, kids of any gender could do worse.
