46 What I find remarkable about works like this one is that the artist had to just make it up. You can see waves everyday if you're near the sea and you can make a study of ships and practice painting both waves and ships, but the artist is going to have to fly solo to make something like this. There aren't pictures of shipwrecks in progress and you can't ask the sea and ship to take a break and hold position while you paint it.

Do people who render shipwreck scenes have prior bodies of work in maritime subjects?

58 What a really dramatic work! You have the massive, jagged rocks and the huge, breaking waves. The storm clouds in the background mimic the powerful forms of the rocks and waves. The best part, for me, is how as the eye goes from foreground to background, the work moves from calm to violent, and the lighting goes from sunlit to dark. You don't usually see the wreak happening. Many works just depict the tragic aftermath.

78 A wonderful depiction of the power of the ocean. The maelstrom of the water, ever changing and moving, contrasts with the solidity of the rocks and mountain in the background. I like the way he captured the subtle shades of greens and whites in the breakers. Also, the web of the ruined sails that remain as the ship is torn apart.

If there is a statement being made, beyond the scene, it is the courage of those who go to see pitting frail vessels of wood against the power of water and rock. It's a hugely effective painting.

Not so fast.
I love the beach when it's storming out. My favorite beach, Rialto, out on the coast is rocky and stormy. There are huge beach logs that get tossed around like toothpicks. The mountains don't end at the shoreline, they challenge the surf and venture out into the waves and are beaten mercilessly. The BEST time to go to Rialto is in the spring when it's stormy. If you're stupid, and don't read the tide charts and listen to the maritime weather reports, you WILL get in trouble.

I have seen or read a theory somewhere to the effect that the legendary Trojan Horse may well have been a metaphor for an earthquake that damaged the city's defenses enough to let in the Greek army. Supposedly there's some archeological evidence to back this up. Dunno if it's true, but I like it anyway.

The mountains don't end at the shoreline, they challenge the surf and venture out into the waves and are beaten mercilessly. The BEST time to go to Rialto is in the spring when it's stormy. If you're stupid, and don't read the tide charts and listen to the maritime weather reports, you WILL get in trouble.

I will never forget when I was young, and my family was traveling in Wisconsin in the summer. We were near Green Bay, in Door County, on a high overlook looking out at Lake Michigan, as a huge stormfront was approaching us across the water. Although it was still sunny where we were standing, I remember being able to count 7 different waterspouts on the stormfront as it approached us. Well we didn't stand there gawking at it for much longer.

I can tell you I have been in rough seas. Went out for an overnight dive on a 50 foot dive boat. It was 3-4 foot waves so it was not fun. When we headed back in the morning we were going to 6-8 foot waves and it was downright scary.
I was laying on a bunk with my hands pushing against the bunk above me because if I didn't I would levitate off the bunk and slam down.
The stove and the refrigerator in the galley tore lose off their brackets so bad it was.

I contemplated putting my dry suit on just in case. We got off the boat when it pulled into fuel at Freeport and got a ride back to Staten Island because we could not take the beating anymore.

267 I remember watching a video of the moon landing broadcast. Walter Cronkite had surprise guest LBJ, and this spoiled the moment for me.

Johnson reminded the audience that the return journey would be very dangerous, and to not celebrate just yet. This was sour and wrong of course ... they were the first to walk on the moon, and would be remembered by history whether or not they returned.

The democrat party is allergic to success and glory, and particularly American victory. Moreso now than 1969. It is painful for them to watch.

There is a quick scene in Interstellar where the daughter's teacher says that the moon landing was a CIA op to humiliate the USSR. The audience assumes correctly that this is national curriculum. I'm sure it came across as kafkaesque to LIVs. But look at the garbage they have been teaching.

Yeah -- just before Christmas! The late '80s or the '90s? He slammed into the Riverwalk mall, or I should say the walkway outside it on the river. Nobody was hurt, I think. The odd thing was that I'd been considering going down to the Riverwalk to do some Xmas shopping that day.

True in most cases. But I knew one Big Man on Campus, really kind of obnoxious and we were certainly not friends. I was a long-haired dope-smoking guitar-playing rocker and he was a disco-suit wearing, feathered-hair sporting goody goody.

But I ran into him by chance several years ago while in town, and he's now a big time righty MAGA guy and a fireman. We hit it off and still stay in touch. His social media is a hoot. He'd fit in perfectly here. So, ya never know.

I didn't mind the people I went to HS with because I had little to do with them. I don't seek to stay in touch with anyone from my past because I never left them with any reason for them to remember me kindly. It would be, at best, an embarrassment for them and humiliating for me.

Dolley talks about going to a reunion to show me off and how she's kept her figure. It's in no small part because her high school boyfriend cheated on her and married a girl who ballooned a bit.

But the town is tiny and the high school graduating class was about 15 people, almost all of whom still live right there.

II had to be made cheap because of the expense of TMP (for a variety of reasons beyond just the production of the movie itself). They reused a fair amount of special effects footage from TMP.

I could understand ALF liking Gilligan's Island, seeing as ALF was basically stranded in a similar situation.

522 I like Grimes's music but I admit it is an acquired taste and I'm a bit freaky funky. I think her and Musk made a good couple. She doesn't seem too bad. She probably needs a musk in her life as much as he needs a grimes. I actually do hope they work it out for them and their kids someday. With all the shit that goes down in this world, and all the distractions, love is more important.

I sent a "no" reply for the 20th, no reply at all for the 25th, and haven't heard of any since. I imagine they still have reunions since it's unlikely that all of them are dead, and have finally figured out that they're wasting a stamp by contacting me. Or maybe they've gone all Facebook, which means they wouldn't find me even if they tried since I simply ain't there.

I live in the same area where I grew up. There are people I graduated with who live within a mile or two of me that I haven't spoken to in 30 years. Why would I waste an evening with them?
