Conflicted

Hmm. Yes, I keep eyeing the swooning gentleman in the header image (glance towards the top of the screen, uh huh, there he is). One part of me loves him, because I do love art that’s more than a little operatic (there’s a Warhol doco playing, and it’s intriguing, so where does that leave me?) and another part is, well, contemplating changing it out for something else a little more contemporary.

Nah. The gentleman can stay. Gotta go baroque. Pun intended.

In the meantime, I’m reading Elmore Leonard together with Santino Hassell’s Five Boroughs and enjoying the incredible characters, dialogue and all round sensational writing abilities of both.

And naturally, between Warhol and Hassell, I’m being well and truly sold on New York. The sixties version and the contemporary one.
