More art.

Thanks to Annie Chernow for reminding us that today is the birthday of the great Stan Laurel.

Stan and Ollie were a rare team, good friends on and off the screen, and I think they're friendship shows in their work. This scene is a classic with one of their favorite foils, the incomparable Jimmy Finlayson.

When I'm sick or feeling blue, nothing picks me up quite like the boys.

So tonight, raise a glass to the art of Stan and Ollie. And make mine sassafras.

The piano up the stairs is my favorite. Those two were fucking geniuses.
