The Classics: Music & Humor | Kitsch | Scoop.it

When Alyssa Milano was on The Late Late Show last December, she told Craig Ferguson (and all of us watching), that her grandfather said there were two types of people: those who think farts are funny, and those who don’t.

Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

Of Mozart & farts.

Tourist Trapped: Conservatory Of Flowers

Tourist Trapped: Conservatory Of Flowers | Kitsch | Scoop.it

Each room or “gallery” of the Conservatory has lots of nooks and crannies, benches and overhangs to play around. One can certainly spend an eternity gazing at the fascinating bouncing Nepenthes. Or one could pretend one was in a magical secret garden deep within the Amazon Rainforest on a fairy finding expedition. I did both.

 

Making our way to the opposite end of the Conservatory, Tighe and I found ourselves at the current special exhibit: Boomtown: Barbary Coast at the Conservatory of Flowers. As explained on the website, “Get ready to jump ship into San Francisco’s rowdy past as the Conservatory of Flowers presents an all new garden railway display celebrating San Francisco’s gold rush Boomtown days and its infamous Barbary Coast neighborhood.”

 

I know what you’re wondering. And yes, there is a little section devoted to prostitutes. The special exhibit gallery was filled with little model trains, model ships, and mini-earthquakes. Boomtown looks like a Mr. Roger’s Make Believe version of San Francisco, which is to say that it is awesome and fun and a little bizarre.
