    Aliens!

    F A I T H: what a big word! I have hope in life
  3. George is just a baby...little cute thing! He is not aware yet...... to be the third in line to be a king.
  4. Well Gaqo what a choice! That is the ecstasy of Santa Teresa by the sculptor Bernini of Rome. It's a baroque extravaganza. Rome is the capital city of Baroque art. I lived there. You should take a flight (only two hours from London) to marvel the opere of Bernini. There're so many there that you can get lost amongst them.
  5. Is anyone in this forum of Indian origins like Raj and perhaps experienced a kind of Bollywood romance?
  6. @ Geniocrat I'll bear that in mind...you want to get rid of me...don't you :lol:
  7. I've just read that today is your Birthday Walnutcowboy 56 years candles HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU
  8. Yes indeed they are sophisticated @Gaqo It was a very simple technique to begin with...and very well known to say the least. It is still used by some muralists in nature nowadays. They were inspired and used the natural embossing of the bumpy rock walls of the caves... to suggest the initial relief of the design. Once satisfied by their shape and form jotted down...they'd colour and countour it with the charcoals.

    Super Nerds!

    Not only Sheldon wishes to live long enough to become a robotSheldon machine Andy In 1963, long before computers became part of our consciousness, before Kasparov lost to Deep Blue, before HAL took over the spaceship, Andy Warhol said, "I want to be a machine." Andy knew that machines were things to be feared, worshipped, admired and, therefore, emulated. His artwork was about people and ideas that were, more or less, generated by the machine: the media machine, the political machine, the printing press and the television, all iconic images that were powerful, not because they were complex, nuanced, interesting or even beautiful, but because they were relentless. Warhol's brilliance was in recognizing how deep the machine metaphor had embedded itself into our personal ambitions and our collective self-image.
  10. The caves were special not only for representing the mural depictions but more importantly rituals were held there almost daily. Of course there were other external sites but those caves were sheltering by protecting them from wildlife animals attacks. Primitive indigenous people worshipped hunting and by the act of painting those symbol-like-wild-creatures they would in a way take hold of the surrounding fauna and control it in secret. It was a sacred refuge for that people, a safe place from the dangers of the outside world.

    Super Nerds!

    Oh I am glad someone here likes Andy Warhol Do you reckon he was a super nerd?
  12. We do a great job to keep Chit Chat busy...pity that I feel we are just the gutter press :D
  13. Well, well things are looking up...the best scene of that episode! I did not enjoy Howard's cloning of al Pacino he was funnier as Fruit Loop young man. But that's only my opinion.
  14. I barge in...only to to say that I am against Raj's parents going to Pasadena We give too much credits to these people. After all who are they? Simple reason I do not wish to see them as I do not like: A Bollywood romance in Pasadena.
