The joys of statistics, and a random meme
I've been over at Homestead, playing with their statistics to see patterns of visits and so on, what keywords are used (obviously, no one's looking for "Humongous Bighead" yet, but I'm pleased to report that the most common keyword search turning up "Vader's Mask" is, in fact, "Vader's Mask," which means people are looking for it, yay.)

At any rate, I can also click to see the origin pages (don't worry, I have no idea who comes from where) for link-overs, and on one, I found this neat little meme:





which art movement are you?

(ETA: This text appeared on the results page:
"Baroque Art emerged in Europe around 1600 as an reaction against the intricate and formulaic Mannerist style which dominated the Late Renaissance." (artcyclopedia.com.) Baroque Art is fairly realistic but is often willing to smudge the realism in favor of theatricality and the emotional pull that is its trademark. You're most likely a creative, talented emotional person who likes attention. Although it could all just be a show.
Famous Baroquers (there are lots): Rembrandt, Rubens, Caravaggio, and You.
)

Baroque, eh? Okay. I can live with Baroque.

Anyway, it's kind of fun to see usage patterns. Either that, or I'm a real geek with a weird idea of fun. Either that, or closely related to a statistician.

According to this, I'm the Renaissance. I think I can live with that.

You should know something about this, it's the Renaissance! As for style, "...artists studied the natural world, perfecting their understanding of such subjects as anatomy and perspective." (artcyclopedia.com.) They loved science-y things and labored for perfection and harmonious beauty, a goal with which you sympathize. You're probably pretty smart, too. Anal-retentive much?
Famous Renaissancers (lots!): Michaelangelo, Da Vinci, Raphael, and You.
