Gooblogger. Duckbill Platypus Invasion. And a Painting by Georges de la Tour.

Comments aren't working. I'm sure the gooblogger people are getting on this. Anyways, stuff to talk about... hmmm... I could talk about political blunders (Joe Biden)? Nah, it's just too easy...

There are so many things to talk about and I can't narrow it down. I just can't. Since people can't comment, I guess I can just write some crazy ass rant or remark and not worry about repercussions, something like this maybe:

"The duckbill platypuses (platypi?) have landed in Phoenix and are in the midst of taking over our fine city. Their huge arsenal of candy weaponry is diabolically sinister, and includes machetes of the dark chocolate variety (70% cocoa I wonder?) and chainsaws made of swirling colors (I can't quite identify the specific candy used in the manufacture of these chainsaws but the machinary sure is gruesomely loud and fills the air with a soft hum that seems to be increasing in intensity as the monsters approach). The worst part is the platypuses aren't alone, they're accompanied by a horde of delicious looking chocolate covered saber-toothed mini zombie rabbits whose thirst for human entrails is insatiable. Also accompanying the platypuses are flamethrower toting gummy bear monsters, dude, they are torching buildings left and right with gleeful abandon. And I can't even bring myself to talk about the cotton candy poodle monsters, I'll go blind with fright if I even try describing their awfulness.

I stare out my window. The platypuses and their army are fast approaching. The fires are getting bigger. The air feels hotter. And I'm so scared I just barfed on my keyboard..."

Eh, this is all too much work. I think I'll just post a painting I like.

Here you go... it's by the French painter Georges de la Tour, he's one of my favorites.

When the drugs kick in they really kick in, don't they Sebastien? I like a painting he did of Mary Magdalena that's very similar to this one.

Hedy: Yeah, I love the candlelight, it's so beautiful. He's done quite a few paintings with candlelight, there's some Italian painter who really influenced him with that but I don't know his name.

Mariana: I know exactly the painting you're talking about! Oh yeah, the drugs, so gooood...

Babs: Hey! People can comment now, woohoo! I'm gathering photographic evidence as we speak.

Faz: Can't wait to see pics of those crazy squirrels!

Stratocat: Haha, thanks so much buddy!

Silver: Odd, hallucinatingly great dreams... Actually most of them are quite standard really.

Taarzaan: Haha, apocalicious, love that word!

Sebastien said...
