Nosey scones!! [Jul. 16th, 2007|07:29 am]

[music |Business Time - Flight of the Conchords]

Michelangelo's nose was so misshapen that in the word of one historian "His forehead almost overhangs the nose." . As a boy Michelagenlo had mercilessly teased the painter Pietro Torrigano while Torrigiano was trying to study art inside a church. Angered, Torrigiano turned on young Michelangelo, and in his own words "Dealt him such a blow on the nose that I felt the bone and cartilage yield under my fist as if they were made of crisp wafer. And so he'll go with my mark on him to his dying day." .

My brother carries a similar mark, but his came from playing pillowball in gym class.

.. Pillowball? It doesn't sound like it would leave a mark!

It's similar to baseball, except with very soft balls and huge, spongy bases... He was sliding into home and hit the floor (which isn't soft). His nose got pretty broken.

They rock there too.

They have their own tv show on HBO which is an awesome pick me up when things are crummy. For me anyhow. Highly recommended.

The broken nose wasn't necessarily a bad thing for Michelangelo, assuming he could pull it off like Luke Wilson. And it would definitely make him look like rough trade, which could only help attract older gentlemen patrons of a certain persuasion.

Awesome. How right you are.

Luke Wilson pulls it off really well. He's a cutie. I like his brother too. :)
