Vincent

On Doctor Who, "Vincent", which I have not yet finished watching on account of working.

1. Vincent Van Gogh was in no way the greatest artist or even painter ever, and your sycophantic plumping up is sad, desperate fanboyism.

2. Musee d'Orsay? With a veddy British explanator? Well, maybe it's got a better collection or something. But dude's got his own whole museum a short train ride* away in Amsterdam. You could give him even more props while you're jerking him off.

3. Van "Goff", srsly? That's how you pronounce it? I'll grant you, the traditional American "Van Go" isn't exactly better, but it's the frickin 21st century, the era of let's all be multicultural and shit, it's not like it's hard to learn how to pronounce his name as he would pronounce it.

*Yes, I am aware of the "In Europe, a hundred miles is a long way" thing. But srsly, it's 21C, it's all the Eurozone, Paris to Amsterdam is NYC to Boston, or maybe DC.
