Pink Floyd’s “High Hopes” music video is a wonderful example of one of the first times art concepts and direction were heavily incorporated into full length song. 

The film for it’s time set a new bar for incorporating surrealistic imagery, as well as symbology into a music video.

via Wiki: “The video was directed by Storm Thorgerson and features a man looking over the Fens at Ely Cathedral, the same building which can be seen between the metal heads on the cover of the album. Also, the video has many references to Cambridge, where Syd Barrett, Roger Waters and David Gilmour grew up, the university scarves, bikes and punts on the river being obvious ones. In particular many scenes are set in St. John’s College, including the Bridge of Sighs. Also shown is an oversized bust of Syd Barrett.”

You were one hell of a singer, we’re sorry to see you go…

Whitney Houston was found dead in her hotel room at the Beverly Hills Hotel on Saturday at the age of 48, leaving behind a legacy as one of the worlds best singers.

Music in the Tuileries is a painting by Édouard Manet which hangs in the National Gallery, London

It is an early example of Manet’s painterly style, inspired by Frans Hals and Diego Velázquez, and it is a harbinger of his life-long interest in the subject of leisure.

While the picture was not regarded as finished by some, the suggested atmosphere imparts a sense of what the Tuileries gardens were like at the time; one may imagine the music and conversation.

Here Manet has depicted his friends, artists, authors, and musicians who take part, and he has included a self-portrait among the subjects. Included in the image are Manet himself, Charles Baudelaire, Théophile Gautier, Henri Fantin-Latour, Jacques Offenbach, and Manet’s brother Eugène.
