...looks like a beetle to me? Have you undergone a metamorphosis, jen? ;)
Well, I have been "climbing the walls" lately....Ha!
Well, beware of apples. ;)
Ouch. I felt so sad for him.You see a beetle? :-)You DO have imagination!
Sure. How else did i come up with my handle!? ;)
I think you deserve a new handle.Buona notte! ;-)
Deserve, heh. That's a nice way of putting it. :)Nyt nyt.
Would make a great picture-prompt for creative writing!
In fact, i can think of three distinct openings:1. Jen had a beetle;2. Jen became a beetle;3. Jen killed a beetle and then stuffed it.;)
Good morning, AOW! Feel free to use it with your students.It's actually a man's face in profile. :-)
Nicrap, your talk about beetles brought back a childhood memory.While camping one summer, my brother found a huge beetle and made it his pet. He tied a string around it and walked it. That night, the bug tried to fly away, so my brother flew it like a kite. :p
It's actually a man's face in profile.Now you indeed killed the beetle for me. ;)
I never did see it!
Well Trygaeus, I was going to comment that the picture reminded me of a Hubble Space Telescope photo, perhaps a Magellanic Cloud or Nebula, but then there weren't enough stars in the background.Fly, fly, fly! ;)
...and by Trygaeus, I am speaking to nicrap. ;)
Now you indeed killed the beetle for me.I suppose that once you begin the process of making certain "paranoiac" associations, it's hard to "untie" them. :P
...okay... maybe it is easy. The beetle is gone and the "face" has completely replaced it... because the face "fits" the pattern MUCH better.Interesting.
Trygaeus ... now how about that for a handle? ;)I never did see it!No imagination! :p
Yes, it's easy. :)
Had it NOT been a face... I wonder if the associations would have been harder to shake... as "faces" are processed in a different region of the brain from "things".
Probably, fj.I hate it when I see faces that won't go away. (That sounds totally creepy, but you know what I mean!)
Someone needs to tell me how to see the beetle....
@JenJust focus on the lighted part.@fjLet's not fall into a determinism. Instead, there is always the Fall and the Redemption. ;)
:-)Thanks for trying!
P.s. it's good advice for me, in general. Good timing, nicrap.
Or, to put it another way: redemption follows fall.Madness is the lowest point of humanity to which God submitted in His incarnation, thereby showing that there is nothing inhuman in man that could not be redeemed or saved; the ultimate point of the Fall was glorified by the divine presence: and this is the lesson which, for the seventeenth cetury, all madness still taught. a lesson now forgotten. :)
He is risen [read: he can see the face, the beetle is dead]! Hellalujah! ;)
Les non-dupes errant! ;)
Acephale! Duchamp, "The Green Box" (license to live). Badges, we don't need no stinkin' BADGES!Long live all Starfish in a world of Spiders (being)!Nomads, arise! Your time draws near. :P
I hear ya, monsignor Quixote, famous knight-err[e]nt. ;)
@fjWhy "forum" and not "fourbum"?
What does "fourbum" mean? Could it be a 'misprint'Whereas a forum imperator would be like the Carnaval king???I don't know.
Lord of MisRule?
The painting of Moliere lends itself to the interpretation I gave... as he is dressed in Roman garb, holds the consular staff of power of an "imperator" and wears a crown of "laurel" that more closely approximates a holly Christmas/ Saturnalia wreath...
What does "fourbum" mean?Rogues?
...though carnival king would also lend to the Cynical themes present in Rameau's Nephew.
Re Angoulevent:He titled himself Prince of Fools, 'a title disputed by Valenti le Comte and JAcques Resneau: there follow pamphlets, a trial, arguments; his lawyer declares and certifies him to be "an empty head, a gutted gourd, lacking in common sense; a cane, a broken brain, that has neither spring nor whole wheel in his head."'
It could very well be "rogue". My French/Latin is not all that. A fourberie is a trickster...
...Yes, i guess it is "rogues". :)
