Poker Night (From A Streetcar Named Desire)
Thomas Hart Benton

Strangely, I see some parallels with Caravaggio. The exaggerated musculature, the dark but vibrant colors, the obvious sexuality.

Yeah...I'm a Moron.

From The Whitney Museum....

In 1947, Thomas Hart Benton was commissioned by Hollywood producer David O. Selznick to create an original painting based on a scene in the film version of Tennessee Williamsís Pulitzer Prize-winning play, A Streetcar Named Desire. The work was a gift for Selznick's first wife, Irene, a theatrical producer responsible for bringing the play to Broadway in the same year. Poker Night captures the sexual tension and violent undertones in the relationships between Blanche DuBois, a down-and-out Southern belle (holding up a mirror), her sister, Stella (leaning over the armchair), and Stella's husband, the hot-tempered, childlike Stanley Kowalski (wearing a white undershirt). It documents one of the play's most dramatic and memorable moments, when Blanche taunts a drunk and angry Stanley with her petty provocations and refined airs.

Also was told Stanley rapes her. I guess it's victim shaming, but based on the pictured scene it seems inevitable that he would.

90 I was just looking up the artist, and he's the one who did that Flood Disaster that CBD put up here last year, with the wacky out-of-proportion house and people.

His style for a lot of his stuff is -- I don't know the right word, where is Kris? -- not exactly whimsical, but sort of wobblyish.

I would make a lousy art critic.

96 @Bluebell,

The Whitney description is interesting, but it doesn't make much sense. The play came out in 1947 or 1948, and the movie wasn't released until 1951.

I doubt they sat on the movie for 3 years, so the painting is probably based on Benton's impression of the play.

112 CBD, I understood that. The description says the painting was commissioned in 1947, the same year the play had hit Broadway. So I was assuming the picture was based on the play.

A couple people had commented that it would be nice to know the date of the painting, so I was just pointing out that it apparently was 1947.

I'm not sure what the word is for his style, either. He's considered a Regionalist or "American Scene Painters" and is sometimes put in a group with Grant Wood (American Gothic) and Rockwell. But their styles are vastly different, so the association is not shared by everyone.

133 California lawmakers taxing their imaginations.

The proposal says that California-based companies that launch spacecraft will have to pay a tax based upon "mileage" traveled by that spacecraft from California. (No, we're not exactly sure what this means, either). The proposed regulations were first reported by the San Francisco Chronicle, and Thomas Lo Grossman, a tax attorney at the Franchise Tax Board, told the newspaper that the rules are designed to mirror the ways taxes are levied on terrestrial transportation and logistics firms operating in California, like trucking or train companies.

Let me tell you about my weird night.

Woke up around 5:00 a.m. with a mosquito buzzing my head, which has never happened in this house since we moved in. Husband was sound asleep and kitty wasn't on the bed. I got up to find some mosquito repellent in the laundry room, and as I rounded the hallway corner, the door into the house from the garage was open, as was the garage door!

I freaked out, looking for kitty, and she came running from outside. So now the house has mosquitos, and husband slept cluelessly until I informed him of his leaving the doors opened this morning. How the hell does anyone do that?

We're in a secure community. Husband has forgotten to pull the door into the house securely before. And has forgotten to close the garage.

We're just lucky we weren't awakened by a racoon or fox. I saw a racoon crossing the street in broad daylight a few days ago. Sort of ambling. Not a good sign.


There was a widow out here who was awakened by a newly adopted kitteh batting at something under her bed. Her two dogs were asleep on the bed. She looked under the bed, and there was a water moccasin stretched out under her headboard. The brave old lady grabbed a broom, "herded" the snake (which fortunately was smallish) into her bathroom, and managed to flush it down the toilet (I'd never use that toilet again).

That was me. There is a video on a wall that is kind of easy to walk past, but my husband and I saw it. It is one I've never seen, just a few seconds. A reporter is typing on his laptop as smoke is coming out of the first tower, then suddenly the second plane flies into the second tower and disappears into a fireball. It was stunning. We stood and watched it at least eight times. My husband moved on to another exhibit, and as I was turning to join him, three Mideastern looking young men arrived and began watching the video, putting their hands over their mouths and laughing and speaking to each other in whispers. I was shocked, and looked around for a security guard and couldn't find one. I told my husband about the incident, and we tried to find the guys, but they had disappeared into the crowd.

As we were nearing the exit, there is a Billy Jeff quote on a wall (down near the floor, clearly hoping most people will miss it) saying something like the reason he didn't go after bin Laden was because "innocent women and children could have been killed."

That was the final straw for my husband. He pointed to the quotation and loudly said, "YOU FAILED AT YOUR JOB, YOU COWARD!"

Noodling around the channels last night and was met with ads for a show now on HGTV about two gay men who are rescue designing for people who just can't stand their homes anymore. Oh, and the gays are a couple and have a little baby they bought from somewhere. The ad still shot shows the two of them kissing the baby and the baby's horrified expression, which sums up my opinion of the show.
I find it so incredibly telling that HGTV cancelled a prospective remodel show of two brothers who had actively donated and supported a organization fighting gay marriage before the SC decision. The brothers had zero plans to feature their views in the show, other than they would not agree to do remodels for gay couples living together. Obviously, HGTV feels their gay audience needs remodel shows they can relate to , since remodeling is all about featuring your alternative lifestyle, not the remodel itself.

SYTTD is a guilty pleasure of mine, and they have done episodes with a transgender and various lesbian couples that are trainwreck tv.

I also watched it for not just the mindlessness and because most of us only get one time in our life to pick out the full bridal gown ensemble. So this was a way to relive that experience through someone else.

I have watched a few episodes this year and find most of them are either full out SJW, or have featured a bride who brings all of her bridesmaids, her parents, her groom and six cousins to the appointment.

I have to question how much of that is scripted and how much is real. I don't remember any of my friends, myself, or even my nieces taking a dozen people to a dress shopping appointment. Mother, maid of honor, possibly an aunt or the groom's mother(that used to be rare).

447 It's been five years since 17-year-old Trayvon Martin's life was stolen from him after he was gunned down while walking home from the convenience store by George Zimmerman, who was eventually acquitted of murder charges in his death. The case sparked national outrage and Trayvon, though gone, has never been forgotten. And now, this month, the Florida Memorial University is planning to honor Trayvon's lifelong dream of becoming a pilot by posthumously awarding Trayvon, who would be 22 if he were alive, with a bachelor's degree in aeronautical science during its annual spring commencement ceremony May 13.

448 Bluebell, it was a wild episode to watch because of all the other people in the shop falling over themselves to celebrate this transgender getting a dress - the mom, friends (including other trans), the bridal shop staff. All the "Oh, I feel so proud of myself for helping this man pretend to be a bride!" moments were fascinating. Seems to be about people getting off on their own empathy and "tolerance."

And thus making a mockery of real marriage.

I'm glad all that stuff wasn't around when I was getting married. And I only went to a couple shops, because I couldn't find anything I liked better than my mother's wedding dress, so I wound up wearing that and was very happy. But I presume I'll have to go wedding dress shopping with my girls some day, and if we run into a scene like that, we'll be outta there so fast we'll leave a plume of dust.

Yeah, this season has felt different. A lot of the brides' self-absorption is over the top. And the vocal fry - don't get me started about how prevalent that has become in newer episodes! Think the show has been on long enough that these brides are scripting out the event, the whole thing feels staged.

462 I have to question how much of that is scripted and how much is real. I don't remember any of my friends, myself, or even my nieces taking a dozen people to a dress shopping appointment. Mother, maid of honor, possibly an aunt or the groom's mother(that used to be rare).
---
Don't forget the gay best friend, the gay wedding planner, Dad, step-Dad, the groom, grooms best friend, grandmother and so on.

I suspect a lot more is scripted than we realize; I can't believe how bitchy some people are with the bride, and how inappropriate some of the dresses are.

465 Right. Prior to November, the Democrats were all about the low employment numbers and how wonderful the economy is under Obama, and they'd get snippy if you brought up the Labor Participation Rate. But since the EnTrumpening, they'll be all about the Labor Participation Rate, and lets impeach Trump serious you guys.

Posted by: OregonMuse Hurlingbone, Lord Fappingstroke


I try to look at that number, your highness, not through a political filter, but only as a
[x] concerned conservative citizen
[ ] not concerned

It's continuously dropped through both Bush terms, both Obama terms, and I kinda hoped for at least a leveling off with Trump. It's still early, but adding tens of thousands of immigrants to the 'not employed' side of the equation every couple months is what I think is skewing the numbers.

466 Tray-tray was once required to write an answer to the "what do you want to be" question, and he saw that the ink pen he had stolen earlier had "Pilot" written on it, and he knew he would get points for spelling it correctly before resuming making jokes about homosexuals and dreaming of getting high after class.
