Good morning, D.C.! Lots of butthurt fans on Twitter told me that the Redskins did worse (than usual?) last night, but this is an arts blog, and we cannot be bothered with such things here. Onward!
TBD has video demonstrating that Lynda Carter has a rack. Who? She’s a Potomac, Md., resident. Also, she played Wonder Woman. Maura Judkis, who probably pioneered coverage of the subject, discusses prop severed heads, because prop severed heads are a trend.
This weekend, the Tweed Ride happened. Even though this was only its second round, the Tweed Ride is probably a trend, too.
Prince of Petworth finds some random street art. The Washington Post looks at “the pop culture dimension of space flight,” courtesy of the the Air & Space Museum (go now, before Congress tries to charge you for everything that is free and great in this city!).
Girl Talk released a new spazz-tastic mash-up album, All Day. This will probably appeal to college kids who burnt out pregaming on Feed the Animals, like, two years agoand need new songs to take shots to. It might also appeal to some of Arts Desk’s faithful readers; the album’s second track, “Let it Out,” brings together local names Fugazi and Wale. Hey, now they’ve got more than just geography in common!
Here on Arts Desk, we ponder the worth of Washington Post writers jetsetting off to New York to cover cultural events in the first edition of Fare Assessment. Philip Glass‘ unusual take on the American Four Seasons gets reviewed. And, we talk about Frodus, arbiters of spazzcore (yes, spazzcore).
Enjoy your Tuesday! If you’re having trouble doing so, go cheer yourself up with some pancakes—the Columbia Heights IHOP opens today.
