Yes, he asks the military and that gives me great comfort

Military dropped the MOAB without Trump's knowledge. He found out when it showed up on tv

All this just in time for Good Friday / Easter Sunday

You believe in the well worn "tradition" -- of the dates of Good Friday / Easter Sunday ??

Rightly divide the word, of God, seek the Truth, and you will see that it's really and actually:

Good Wednesday / Easter Saturday

Exactly 72 hours, 3 Days & 3 Nights

In the Tomb before sunset Wednesday

Risen from the Tomb before sunset Saturday

I saw this piece by Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (1571-1610) at the Montserrat Abbey Museum near Barcelona.  I don't know a lot about art but I was somehow struck by this particular painting which was one of a number of great works on display.  I don't think it's even among Caravaggio's more famous paintings

I do like Sir Edward, although the Dutch influence can be a bit dark. Waterhouse, of course...need I say more?

She has been identified, and posted online that she was there to get "100 Nazi scalps"  she was there looking for shit.  Venus Rosales is her porn name  LOL

Looks like he's been identified too, as the founder of this neo-Nazi hate group. They are opposite branches of the same rotten tree.

Cool -- I'm envious (seeing these things close up first hand). I just checked, that's 1606, he died four years later at the age of 36!

Oh you're so lucky to be able to see art like that in a museum. *jealous*

Reminds me a bit of The Death of Marat by Jacques-Louis David, don't know why...but it does.

I am indeed fortunate.  I also particularly liked this one by Ramon Casas (1866-1932) Madeleine - 1892.

As an ex-felon who posted Periscope of himself to his Twitter from the protest, he should be easy pickins for the authorities. I wonder how well "an extraordinary irritant" does in prison?

That second pic reminds me of Subiaco cave/monastery where St. Benedict did his thing early on. Some great artwork besides the history and cool "built into mountain" buildings, bridges, etc.
http://www.sacred-destinations.com/italy/subiaco-san-benedetto
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abbey_of_Saint_Scholastica,_Subiaco

Oddly enough I was motivated similarly, though not by Spirit or "horrified with the immorality," as Benedict! Just sick of the teeming masses, stealing gypsies, traffic, and heat in Rome and needed to get out of the city and get into some nature so I took the train and then hiked up the mountain to his cave and then down to the Monastery etc. It was pretty cool.

The Missal
John William Waterhouse
1902

The pallet, muted (muddy neutral) tones, is more in keeping with the English Aesthetic movement, Aestheticism (and then Arts n Crafts itself), and in contrast to the bolder garish looks of some other Victorian era "revival" styles. It's also very much continous in "taste" with (contemporary) Owen Jones e.g. "The Grammar of Ornament" (1856), William Morris and even streching back to English Regency (early 1800s) -- i.e. it's all of a classic English restraint and reserved taste. Muted pallets and simple elegant line of Japanese prints (all the rage) also make their influence felt in Aestheticism. Overall though, the taste (late 1800's English decorative Arts) is moving the revivable stuffs timeline _back_ to the English *medieval* i.e. truely "Gothic" in inspiration (i.e. leapfroging back to motifs used _befor_ Renaisance (Greco-Roman) Classical Revival models. This is how you/we get to (Oak wood) Arts and Crafts furniture patterns directly after but still a part of Aestheticism , simple sturdy practical craftsmanship (countering industrial-age mass production furniture and "values") You can visually trace this movement from Eastlake oak furniture through to Stickley oak designs (aka "Mission" furniture), Roycroft, etc which followed by c.1900.

It looks like a place I'd like to visit.  I've been to Rome a couple of times but have never made it beyond the city limits.  We have talked about going back to Italy, getting a Euro-Pass and doing a self guided tour by rail.  I was thinking of starting in Lombardy and hitting the major cities like Milan, Venus, and working our way down the peninsula on the Adriatic side as far as we can go comfortably in six weeks or so.  (We've both seen the cities on the Med. side e.g. Florence, Genoa. Pizza, Rome, Naples.)  Of course a trip like that takes some serious planning and we haven't worked out the logistics yet but that's what we have in mind at a date TBD.

Sounds like a good plan. I didn't get around Italy as much as I wanted but agree it is nice to get out of the cities sometimes. Amalfi Coast has always seemed nice.
There are "windows" in life where one has the opportunity/availability/money/time to seriously do some traveling, it seems. Too often they aren't at the right time! But do it. Lots of stuff to see here in the good 'ol USA also and our limited vacation time and distance makes it sometimes hard to get overseas (unless for work, detail, or boondoongle! Or once retired.) Rail is a great option for Europe, especially when younger and one is more 'flexible' on schedules and places to stay and can wing-it (and the passes are usually cheaper.) Also another thing is all the cheap airlines they have now due to deregulation. Service sucks, you have no recourse often if something is cancelled (check your gate and flight status OFTEN,) and they outright lie (but nobody is fooled anymore) about where they fly you. (They might say "Oslo" but really it is some small satellite airport way outside the actual city or real Oslo airport.)

A friend recently did a short river cruise around Lyon and said it was awesome. But it was her first "get away" sans kids in awhile so she said she mainly just loved being able to sleep etc. Ha. And was able to parlay trip costs due to some 'conference' for her husband's work also. Also, have to mention, that the short-term rental market is also a great deal. And much more fun, and cheaper, especially if you are there for some days or especially if you have several people going (like kids or extended family etc.) The place they rented in Lyon was insane and cheaper than staying in a hotel. Can cook your own food, live in a neighborhood versus some anonymous hotel, etc. I've used VRBO a few times and always awesome experience and value, both here in the States and in Switzerland and no complaints and often the owners are super nice and have tips, stuff, about local scene etc.

This one by El Greco at Museo de Montserrat  struck me as bizarre (hands, forearm and shoulders out of proportion with head and masculine looking.). I know he "evolved" and painted in different styles over time but this looks almost impressionistic to me and unlike other paintings I've seen by him.

There was a time when I wouldn't think of hitting a female.  However, in the current era of gender equality and under the same circumstances, If a member of the fair sex grabbed me by my shirt collar I cannot be sure that I wouldn't knock her into the next zip code.   Assault is assault and everyone has a right to defend themselves.
time spent as a doorman in a past life has forced me to come to some concrete conclusions. 

1. When a woman is physically trying to beat your ass, you need to do something (I'm not a fan of the biting, scratching crap and do not wish to loose a chunk of flesh.)

2. The best way to deal with it is to restrain her (generally.)  I had the advantage that usually the police were on their way already (almost every time a woman went after me it was because her boyfriend was being restrained.)**  Usually they don't attack you if it is a cat fight you are breaking it up...

3. Unless it is big Birtha (or a certain woman I know nameed Amanda, who will probably beat the living shit out of you before you would even get an arm up to block) there is no reason to hit a woman.

The long and the short of it is that if you are 230lbs and you honestly think that knocking any woman "into the middle of next week" is acceptable, you need help.  It is no longer "defending" yourself as you ought to be able to find another way (unless it is Amanda, then you are probably fucked and should not have pissed her off to start with...)

**I'm reminded of the one time when the RCMP showed up after being called for her boyfriend and I opened their back door, tossed her in and apologized to them... Yes, I knew the officers- I was trying not to put her to the ground, but she was biting, scratching, screaming and even spitting.  I tried letting her go once, but she decided to hit another doorman who was holding her BF.  The crowd was actually cheering for me to put her down- quite something... No, you are not supposed to put anybody in the back of a cop car on your own.

Ya, with Greco they speculate (because it's the only reasonable explanation) that he literally had "bad eyes" i.e. some kind of visual impairment -- so it's not (just) you.

I see what you mean about the English Aesthetic Movement...all those dimly lit pre-turn of the century landscapes; the dreary persistence of it all. The influence just sometimes looks so Dutch to me. Oh well. It's been quite a few years since my art history and philosophy classes.

'Course, I can't now seem to get the image of thousands of excited Noritake employees riding English and Italian tour buses all muttering to themselves 'art for art's sake, but money for God's sake'. Thank-you-very-much.
