highbrow-lowbrow

[Click image to enlarge.]

From Crooked Timber comes this handy chart from a 1949 issue of Life Magazine, letting you know what’s highbrow and what isn’t.  My favorite part is that the useful highbrow objects are a decanter and an ashtray from a chemical supply company.

I’m all over the place.  I like the Eames chair, but I also prefer a jukebox to Bach. And don’t even get me started on the joys of bourbon and ginger ale.
