This is a map of musical genres, click on one and hear an example. It’s pretty cool stuff.
Her stage name, Whoopi, was taken from a whoopee cushion; she has stated that “If you get a little gassy, you’ve got to let it go. So people used to say to me, ‘You’re like a whoopee cushion.’ And that’s where the name came from.” She adopted the traditionally German/Jewish surname Goldberg as a stage name because her mother felt that Johnson was not “Jewish enough” to make her a star.
Julianne Moore as “Famous Works of Art” by Peter Linderbergh - for Harper’s Bazaar
Seated Woman With Bent Knee by Egon Schiele, La Grande Odalisque by Ingres, Saint Praxidis by Vermeer, The Cripple by John Currin, Les danseuses by Edgar Degas, Madame X by John Singer, Girl with a Pearl Earring by Vermeer, Woman With a Fan by Modigliani, Man Crazy Nurse #3 by Richard Prince, Adele Bloch Bauer I by Gustav Klimt.
To me, the interesting part about this is that some of these completely fail to capture the essence of the original piece. For example, her Madame X’s body language is WAY more vulnerable than the vampy, I-can-kill-you-with-my-high-heels look that the painting has. And the Adele Bloch Bauer has none of the orgiastic almost religious cevelbration and revelation of beauty - it’s way too self conscious.And there’s certainly none of Modigliani’s tension. I dunno, man, I would have chose different works for a traditional fashion editorial.

The small man
Builds cages for everyone
While the sage,
Who has to duck his head
When the moon is low,
Keeps dropping keys all night long
