55 It is lime he had this great vision of a struggle between Ahasuerus and death, but the producers who were funding the project were like, "It needs a naked chick" "It needs an ice world setting" "What if there was an angel?" "Crows! It has to have crows!"

According to his wiki, he did a lot of scenes of mythology as well as Roman Historical scenes.

A lot of his major works are lost. Figures.

91 Well, Adolf Hirémy-Hirschl can certainly project a depressing end. The Wandering Jew at the end of eternity, the skeleton companion, nothing green or growing, crows as the harbinger, and one final point of beauty, wasted. The crystaline lines against the blotched blue/black background is intensely stark.

This artist is interesting. I'll have to learn more about him. Thanks for this one, CBD

Posted by: JTB at May 04, 2021 08:47 AM (7EjX1)

92 Well, the only redeeming thing-for some of the men at least-was the nude woman with her backside up in the air.

Posted by: andycanuck at May 04, 2021 08:48 AM (UHVv4)

95 The angel is holding a palm branch which usually symbolizes martyrdom. Ahasuerus was the husband of Esther from the Bible. I can't tell what's going on in the extreme bottom left corner. An overturned potted plant of some kind. It's clearly associated with the woman. The woman is an allegorical figure? A muse? Earth herself (cus of the plant)? Life?

Intuition - a limerick

Quasimodo got his knickers in a bunch
While asking Esmeralda out to lunch
She seemed to not respect him
And was ready to reject him
Though I'm sure that he already had a hunch!

111 Very interesting painting. I like his works.

He is not in a lot of art galleries, according to Wiki. That Wiki article is so devoid of detail. He seems to have had talent, but not talent that was appreciated by the trend-setters.

Given the times, I prefer his approach to Gustav Klimt's style.

Yeah, but the End is one of the more often done works- especially by artists in the twilight of their lives.

And The Last Judgement is even more depressing. I always found the juxtaposition between the Last Judgement and the Sistine Ceiling to be profound. Hope and Despair- all in the same room.

122 So, my pastor (an RC priest) preached about the evils of the Death Penalty. I told him that the chapter on the Fifth Commandment in the Catechism of the Council of Trent has a really good explanation.

It seems that the Left wants to get rid of the concept of a "lawful killing."

127 It can be tricky distinguishing ravens and crows. Ravens tend to be larger, have an overbite (upper beak hooks over lower beak), travel alone or in small groups of 2-3, and have a diamond shaped tail.

Crows tend to be smaller in size, upper and lower beaks come to a point (equal length), hang out in larger groups and have a fan-shaped tail.

I'm guessing ravens in this picture.

Yup. They had - before the incident - 57 employees. Price's Law states - and usually holds up regardless of context, that's why it's a law - that half of the production is completed by a square root of the population.

Rounded up (because there are no partial people), the Price's Law number is 8 - so probably 8 people are responsible for half the work in the workforce.

The third that quit - about 19 people - are almost certainly in the bottom of the production distribution. Something tells me that the company will be fine. Losing a third is tough, but it is easily survivable depending on *which* third it is. I reckon that the least productive just self-selected out.

Example:
Dad borrows $2 Mil to buy an 8 apartment townhome. 20 years latter it is worth $4 Mil. So he dies. Heirs now owe 1) 40% death tax on anything over $1 M (currently is is $11 Mil). So 40% of $3 M. is $1.2. 2)Then owes 43% of Step Up. So that is another $1.6 Mil.

I think it's just really poorly made and written.

In a world where roving gangs of delinquent youth murder and rape with impunity, the authorities grab...a classroom of children who aren't on the streets doing such things to send to an island for a murder competition. Wha...? And then the characters are all so thin, turning the rest of the movie into just a series of "brutal" (poorly enhanced with CGI blood spurts) kills. We follow a couple of kids for a good chunk, but they're barely characters and they don't matter anyway because we don't even find out for sure who won the thing.

Given that it's generally passed down to the next generation too? Nasty? It's gonna be beyond nasty.

281 Heirs now owe 1) 40% death tax on anything over $1 M (currently is is $11 Mil). So 40% of $3 M. is $1.2. 2)Then owes 43% of Step Up. So that is another $1.6 Mil.


This is designed to kill family farms.

It will also kill the children of middle income earners, too. It isn't that hard, what with investments, owning a house, etc.. to have an estate worth in excess of 1 million dollars.

If this comes to pass, it's very regressive, because it completely ignore the inflation that has happened over the last 20 years.

.....

Well, given that he was fooled by Hamam into signing the edict to allow the execution of the Jews without recompense, before being later convinced by Esther to sign a separate edict to allow Jews to defend themselves, he isn't really viewed as a hero.

Mordecai and Esther, who strategized to establish Esther as the Queen and save the Jews are more of heroes, Ahasuerus is more of the easily manipulated King.

Of course. Regression is the goal.

The real problem for totalitarians (hell, with dictators in general) is independence. Independence has to be destroyed. A man with capital makes a lousy serf. No one can be permitted to own modest amounts of capital. You can own a shit-ton of it, or none. If you're in the former group, you'll survive this even if you have to pay (which is unlikely). If you're in the latter group, this doesn't matter. If you're in the vast middle that exists today, you'll be moved into the latter group.

Enjoy your serfdom, proles.

So, my pastor (an RC priest) preached about the evils of the Death Penalty. I told him that the chapter on the Fifth Commandment in the Catechism of the Council of Trent has a really good explanation.

It seems that the Left wants to get rid of the concept of a "lawful killing."
======
I think this began with the King James translation, where they changed the Commandment from "thou shalt not murder" to "thou shalt not kill".
But I'm just a lapsed cath so what would I know about the bible.

production and then use that as leverage to buy every politician in
every country.
It's amazing that the world now seems to bow to a country that follows the teachings of the world's most barbaric leader ever.

The late Ronald Lacey. He was in many movies, including The Fearless Vampire Killers, How I Won the War, Yellowbeard, Buckaroo Banzai, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and so on. He also did a lot of UK telly, including, as Kris noted, the Jeremy Brett Sign of Four and a 1983 Hound of the Baskervilles. He died in 1991 from liver cancer.

384 Group of Ontario police officers launches charter challenge of pandemic restrictions

A group of 19 Ontario police officers has launched a constitutional challenge against the provincial and federal governments and several police chiefs, claiming that enforcing sweeping pandemic health restrictions puts them at odds with their oath to uphold the charter.

Fifteen active and four retired members of law enforcement agencies -- including the Toronto Police Service, York Regional Police Service, Ottawa Police Service, Niagara Regional Police Service, Hamilton Police Service and the RCMP -- are behind the civil action.

It was filed in the Superior Court of Justice against the premier, the attorneys general of Canada and Ontario, as well as five police chiefs.

Those people wouldn't know what a Principle was if it bit them on the leg. They love money more than other people and are absolutely incapable of even enough intellectual imagination to put themselves in someone else's place to think how they'd feel if somebody did it to them. Or they can, but they love inflicting needless pain and suffering on others, which is sick.
