Something Wonderful: Art Rocks

Relentlessly charming:

An entertaining and cheeky music video for “70 Million”, hit song by Franco-American band, Hold Your Horses!, offers a wink at art history as band members playfully reconstruct famous paintings in an off the wall lyrical interpretation all their own. -- 70 Million by Hold Your Horses ! on Vimeo

Precursor: The same sort of approach was taken, in still photography, by Ethan Russell for Boz Scaggs' My Time album back in 1972.

Ethan Russell shot one of my favorite album covers. The one for Linda Ronstadt's Hasten Down The Wind.

I know he sells a signed print of the shot, but I'm afraid it's a bit out of my cheapskate price range. I've scoured eBay for any other pictures from that photoshoot and I've actually found a few.

Just one of those teenage things I haven't quite outgrown yet...much like my eternal crush on Stevie Nicks...SIGH.
