Doesn’t this sound refreshing? Thanks to Steven Deeble for the image!
People say to me all the time, “Gail, where do you find the amazing Pink Things you put on your blog?” And I say to them: “I find the everywhere!” This pair of Taxidermy White Rats driving a Hot Pink Sports Car (yes, I just typed that) was spotted in the gift shop at the Morbid Anatomy Museum in Brooklyn. I did not ask if it was actually for sale.
It is obvious that they are about to drive off the edge of a “cliff,” all Thelma and Louise-style.
But look how much fun they’re having! Wee!
This ‘Conversational’ group of colorful public seating is located in the rear of the plaza at 77 Water Street, just off Water and Old Slip in NYC’s Financial District.
When I took these photos, a lot of people, appropriately, appeared to be using this area to sit and talk on their phones. This space is also adjacent to where a bunch of food trucks park, so it’s a convenient place to sit and eat and people watch while the weather is still decent.
Those big pink partitions also make it an ideal location to hide from your co-workers while you are on a smoking break.
OK, so this is technically more like a “Pink-ish Thing,” since it’s called Violet Block in Two Parts. But, pinkish is close enough for me! This sculpture by the late great John McCracken is currently on display in the new home of the Whitney Museum, which I’ve managed to visit twice already since it opened in late April of this year.
The grid-like pattern you see on the sculpture’s surface in this photo is a reflection of the gallery’s ceiling.
Yeah, you know what it is. This Pink Popsicle-Shaped Vibrator takes the words ‘Adult Novelty’ to a new level! Geoffrey and I spotted this fun thing in the Gift Shop when we visited the Museum of Sex recently. I didn’t check the price, but it looked like one of the more straightforward toys on the shelf, in that I don’t think I would need a set of instructions to figure out how to use it, which is advantageous.
Here it is on the shelf alongside some of its friends! It’s just like being in an electronics store, trying to figure out what all the little gadgets do.
And don’t those little round things above just look like exotic ear buds, or some type of space-age Bluetooth? I ask yez…
As a way to escape the oppressive heat here in Manhattan this past Sunday, we went on an Urban Adventure to the American Museum of Natural History, where we spotted this little Pink Morganite Goddess statue is on display in The Morgan Memorial Hall of Gems. If you haven’t yet managed to see this particular area of the museum, you really do need to check it out.
The Morgan Memorial Hall of Gems exhibits a vast array of precious and ornamental stones — uncut, polished, and even a few set in elaborate pieces of jewelry — as well as organic materials such as coral and amber, that are prized as gems. The exhibit gallery is also designed like you are perusing a rather posh jewelry store, and benefits from what I would refer to as “mood lighting. The effect is very calming.
Morganite is a stone that is often called Pink Emerald, probably because both of these stones are varieties of Beryl. You will learn so music about gems and minerals during your visit, and it is a nice break from the Dinosaurs.
Here’s nice shot of the entire display case.
And here’s a slightly more in-focus close-up of the same statue, with Geoffrey photo bombing in the background.
