40 Many of the images in this work should be read as symbolizing the reality of mortality. The skull is the most obvious, as is the hour glass. The spent candle with a flame about to go out and the bubble are others. Even the trompe l'oeil image of the canvas falling off its frame could be one. It is old or not well stretched and fastened. I'd be interested what the letter says.

44 Absolutely remarkable skill. His still life paintings combine incredible realism with myth, legends and proverbs. He also has a sense of humor in the way he shows that it is a painting. (One of his other works is the back of a framed canvas. That's comedy!)

I need to see more of his paintings. Thanks for using this one, CBD.

50 Maybe it's my classical illiteracy, but I'm always irritated by these Where's Waldo puzzles. Give me a clue of what you're doing, otherwise, it's just an unattractive painting of a bunch of random items. I'm sure there's a deeper meaning to each of these little bits, but I have no way to decipher what they are, so I end up not caring a whit. It's like a guy covered in tattoos. I bet there's a story to each one, but, frankly, I don't care enough to find out and I'm not at all interested in staring at some fat biker's inked belly to figure it out.

120 Is that an opium pipe on the right? The bowl looks way too small to be a tobacco pipe.

There's a lit lamp, too.

This may explain the painting.

So this is late 1600's. The orange flame looks weird to me, but it's obviously intentional. What kind of oil was burning in that lamp and did it really look that orange? This would be too early for whale oil, wouldn't it?

125 I suppose it may just be the angle, but that skull's coronal suture line seems to be way too far posteriorly positioned.
I wonder if the painter had studied anatomy or not."

127 83 According to the internet: Nautilus shell is a symbol of nature's grace in growth, expansion, and renewal. It is also a symbol of order amidst chaos as reflected in its spiral precision. And a symbol of strength.
Posted by: Iris at August 01, 2022 09:46 AM (foa6+)

Thanks for this. The wine jug in back(?) and the pipe in the ashtray could be symbols of life's pleasures and luxuries. The letter's meaning depends on what it says. These are all fleeting tho, "a chasing after the wind." The shell then becomes renewal?, symbolizing the eternal order of all things? Vanitases are religious paintings. In among the reminders of death, perhaps a image of hope for resurrection and God's ordained order from the chaos of life?

Hmmm.

Many years ago, though, I discovered in my mother's papers a brochure of what we'd call memes today: cat pictures with doctor or nurse-themed captions. One featured a Siamese kitten with its mouth wide open as if yelling. Caption (a la surgeon to nurse): "Don't give me what I ask for, give me what I need!"

I kept the brochure, but now I don't know where it is.

257 I asked the question about skulls because I've always found it curious. People that tattoo skulls or have them as decorations (not talking trophies or old cow skulls with horns found in a desert). I'm not exactly a religious person but how some people use skulls as decorations/tatoos kind of creep me out. I guess they can symbolize a multitude of things to people. I've always associated it with death and some sort of acknowledgment of evil. Something always made me feel that if I had a tattoo or skull an end table, I'm tempting or inviting something not good. I guess I'm a big pussy when it comes to certain things, this would be one. No skulls for me.

Dozens of black men ambushed a film crew at an abandoned mine near Johannesburg on Friday. They raped eight models between the ages of 19 and 35. As they fled, the police shot dead two suspects and 82 other people were arrested.

After a mass rape of eight women, the police in South Africa arrested 82 suspects. Officials were investigating at least 32 rape cases, police in the northern province of Gauteng said on Saturday. Some of the victims were raped by up to ten men, said Police Minister Bheki Cele. The group of perpetrators also committed an armed robbery.

286 she wants to do reconstructive plastic surgery we'll see if THAT holds up. a lot of years of training for that. but she's a really good artist and she's been interested in it for ages. nothing rattles her or grosses her out either. in middle school she was getting those weird "suture fake human skin" kits from amazon and trying to do the smallest possible suturing.

When the wife was training they tried to get her to go into surgery specifically on kids with burns. They have a hard time filling those positions. Lots of burn out. She did a rotation on burn service. She opted for primary care. Plastics is more than just boob jobs and tummy tucks, but that's where the money is. In the coming years it will be all about turning people in to lizards or tigers or whatever stupid thing they think would make them feel better about themselves.

Atop it, bones by an hourglass (tempus fugit, man's mortality). The main square has angels in the top corners over bats in the bottom corners (heaven over hell). Death is in the middle (skeleton with scythe) but the laurel signifies Christ's victory over death. The skeleton is holding the sun & moon (moon's been chipped away over the years). I guess the snake symbolizes eternity. Check it out: https://tinyurl.com/5d4t76fm

Who'd have thought in the early 1980s that he and Danny DeVito would be the breakout movie stars in that cast? Character actors both, of course. As Alex's ex-wife says about Louie in one episode, "He won't make anybody forget Paul Newman." But they were brilliant.

Even Lloyd's Klingon captain in Search for Spock is amazing -- in a serious performance he makes us realize that Klingons just don't think like humans. (In fact his character didn't think like most Klingons; I always had the impression his crew thought he was nuts.)

You're right, that is a great movie with a great cast! Of course they're doing a comic remake of "Strangers on a Train" by Hitchcock, but they make that hilarious by talking about "Strangers on a Train" throughout the entire film. "Criss Cross! Criss Cross!" And DeVito's mother, "Momma", is one of the best horrible characters ever seen on film.

But, the first time I saw his bit on SNL singing "Mighty Mouse", I laughed like an idiot.

Strangely, you can't find it on youtube. Just the Jim Carrey imitation for "Man in the Moon".

They are. The computers don't make the calls - there's still a radiologist in the loop. The computers are trained on hundreds of thousands of images. More than a radiologist will look at in their lifetime. It's hard to beat the law of large numbers.

I'm leery to engage in public math, but I think that would make this particular college cheerleader either 24 or 25 years old.

491 This struck a chord with me. One of the reading at Mass yesterday was from Ecclesiastes about the vanities (vanitas). The Hebrew word for it is "hevel", meaning means vapor, mist, or whisp, and that the problem is not that life has no meaning or is not worthwhile, but that it goes by like a vapor or mist, and we should be cognizant of God while they have the chance.
