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.

Not by a long stretch. The Bayeux "tapestry" comes to mind, or Brant's Ship of Fools:

Or in the German original:

From here. The image is quite large, so if you want to zoom in on the details you can.

I assume like bad movies that are "so bad it's good", it doesn't count if you try to be bad on purpose. It has to be a sincere, but inept attempt.

Clouzot made an interesting, albeit hagiographic, documentary on Picasso (if you have all that time on your hands):



Some works slightly NSFW.

We had no real winter, and spring seems already coming (some birds are singing, hazel bushes are flowering, &c.), so I made a grayish "winter" pic with a puny snow cover on the mountain in the background. (That's a 10 minutes walk from my place.) :evil:
