Episode 54: Romanticism

Happy Valentines Day! (Or 'Single Awareness Day' if you prefer)

Put the dozen red roses in a vase, pull out the heart shaped box of chocolates, cuddle up with your significant other....or your cat, and enjoy the most unromantic art movement there ever was, romanticism.

Don't say we didn't warn you!
