As a non-believer in all things Saint Valentine (after all the “real” St. Valentine was beaten with clubs, stoned, and beheaded by Emperor Claudius…sounds so freakin’ romantic) I refuse to recognize the worst of all commercialised holidays, but let’s not forget…I am also a lazy asshole. So I’ve decided to bring back an old, revised post from two years ago. Enjoy!
Believe it or not, there is an actual Museum of Love. Well, it’s kind of made up but it’s out there for the world to see on the internet. Kris Waldherr is the author of Doomed Queens, Goddess Tarot and The Book of Goddesses so she obviously knows what the hell she’s talking about. I also heard she’s the author of Where’s My Entenmann’s Cake? (bad joke)
Here’s a description of the most romantic place on the web (her words, not mine): “The Museum of Love is intended as the most romantic destination on the web. All of the art and words that make up the Museum was created by Waldherr and adapted from her publications. The Museum of Love takes the form of the Museo di Palazzo Filomela, or the Palace of the Nightingale, set in a mythic Renaissance Venice.”
Unfortunately, the short film Museum of Love (directed by Christian Slater, expert on all things love) and Daniel Johnston’s song Museum of Love are completely unrelated to Kris Waldherr’s student love project. Too bad. Hey, anyone know where I can find the Museum of Hate? And always remember, kids…All You Need is Hate!!!
