That takes me back. :D

Also, your icon is so crazy gorgeous and I don't think I have seen that painting before. Who's the artist?

Honestly, I don't know. Just found the icon somewhere.

But it's the goat girl in me.

It's Jean-Léon Gérôme's "Head of a Woman with the Horns of a Ram" - there's an edition of Ovid's Metamorphoses that uses it as a cover image, which is where I first encountered and fell and love with it. (I may or may not have bought that edition just because of the painting...)

And thank you for the video! That is catchy as hell.

Jean-Léon Gérôme

I didn't recognize the name, but I've been seeing his paintings for years: gladiators, pelt merchants, Pygmalion and Galatea . . . Thank you for identifying him!

You're welcome! And sovay, for some reason I (also) hadn't made the connection between Gérôme and that Pygmalion and Galatea, so thank you for closing the circle there.

One of my all-time favorites. My husband hates TMBG, so I play this and Minimum Wage as much as possible.

These are grounds for divorce.

I'm having a baby in May, so maybe I can get the kid to like it; then he's outnumbered.

I think that's one of my favourite TMBG songs ever.

I just love this song. Video is a little quirky, but it's one of my favorite They Might Be Giants songs.
