Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

Of course prudish Anglo-Saxons evaded the real title: The Cuckolds of Antiquated Modern Art.

Recommended reading. :wink:

Shit like that is why Orwell hated Dali so much.

I guess Franco patronized Dali to soak up some art prestige.

But here is an example of Franco's real taste in art 8)

Yep, Dalí had a conversion to the rotten glories of Catholicism (after Gala's death, I presume). Blargh!

When they dig up Franco, instead of re-burying him quietly somewhere, why not display his remains (properly sanitized of course) at the Prado?

As an objet trouvé. :BigGrin3:
