The Hopper is excellent.

Mine:







""Money doesn't come into it. It never has. I do what I do because it's all that I am." - Morrissey

"Lacan stressed more and more in his work the power and organizing principle of the symbolic, understood as the networks, social, cultural, and linguistic, into which a child is born. These precede the birth of a child, which is why Lacan can say that language is there from before the actual moment of birth. It is there in the social structures which are at play in the family and, of course, in the ideals, goals, and histories of the parents. This world of language can hardly be grasped by the newborn and yet it will act on the whole of the child's existence."

My taste in painting is pretty mainstream. I like Van Gogh a lot and Renoir too. I like Impressionism and Pointilism. (Ferris Bueller's Day Off anyone?) My favorite painting is the Van Gogh one that depicts an outdoor cafe in Paris. I had the opportunity to visit the Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam when I was there. He sure puts a lot of friggin paint on his canvas!

Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

Reminds me of Rushmore. I'm a fan of any Escher, there were some paintings I saw at the High Museum during a Victorian era ( I think) exhibit, some of that stuff was so amazing, I wish I could remember any of the artists' names.

you have to love anything by bob ross.


i've got a 5x3 poster of this in my room... even though it's a logo, it's one of my all-time favorite paintings:

i don't have pictures of my grandfather's paintings online... but he's one of my favorite artists as well. oil paintings of animals and the woods and stuff.
Obviously what you are doing right now is called (in my upcoming book of psychology at least) validation. I think it's a normal thing to do. People will reply, say anything, and then you're gonna do what you were subconsciently thinking of doing all along.
