Madonna and Medusa

The whiskey glass background motif was making my head hurt this morning, so I changed it to a detail from John William Waterhouse's "Echo & Narcissus." I now feel I am reaching Madonna "Confessions" tour levels of overdetermination with the design. But instead of Madge's "Hey look, disco! Hey look, AIDS! Hey look, WAR SUCKS! Hey look, ponies!," I have "Look, Medusa! Get it? With the snakes and the hair and the gaze? Right? And Narcissus! Get it? See the mirror, that's a mirror . . . like the water and what not! Get it?".
