A place for every thing, and everything in its place…

 

Swiss artist Ursus Wehrli is the epitome of neatness.  His new book, The Art of Clean Up, takes everyday scenes of disorder and… well, orders them.

Readers can find more of Wehrli’s “chaos conquered” at Jeannie Huang’s nifty blog Jeannie, Jeannie— and see Wehrli’s tidiness applied to high culture in his Tidying Up Art books…

 

As we resolve to straighten up and fly right, we might recall that it was on this date in 1993 that that America’s favorite neat freak got his own show, when Cheers spin-off Frasier debuted on NBC.  Kelsey Grammar created the Frasier Crane character (in 1984) for what was supposed to be a short-arc as Diane’s boyfriend on Cheers.  But the character was such a hit that he became a regular, then anchored his own series for 11 years.  Grammar appeared in character as Dr. Crane on the NBC series Wings— and became the only actor ever nominated for Emmys for portraying the same character on three different series.
