Sceam Thoughts

I was wondering why Google is making a big deal out of Edvard Munch’s birthday on their home page? (the guy who painted “The Scream”)








Then I thought to myself hey that scream painting kind of reminds me of that Home Alone picture. So I decided to compare the two.












Then I was wondering if anybody else saw this similarity and sure enough there was a mention of it in Wikipedia.

Reproductions of this mask are now very popular and common masks in the real world. Child actor Macaulay Culkin's pose in front of the mirror, in Home Alone by Chris Columbus appears to be a homage to the work.


Then I decided to put this exciting thought process I just had on my blog site and share it with everybody lucky enough to see it.

i know my blood pressure just shot up with the excitement of it all.

in all seriousness, kudos. i hadn't made that connection.

did you notice that a lot of the things Elvis wore seem to be an homage to the many Musician On Velvet paintings (various artists)? or maybe that's not quite the same. fine, go ahead and make fun of me -- i was just trying to play the game too...

Ohhhh, it's the sharing of the random inner thoughts that keep us all blogging and reading everyone else's blog...

yes, we're all so lucky that you bring excitement to our lives.

have to admit, never made the connection. i must be in the presence (or blog-land) of genius...

Why is this Beta upgrade messing up the comments?
Can I swith to Alpha or some other letter of the Greek alphabet

hey, blogball, sorry 'bout the troubles you're having w/beta -- where'd you get the brilliant idea to switch, anyway? :-)

I guess I have no one to blame but myself si even though I think of you every time I have problems. (With beta that is) I’m starting to get the hang of it now. I still have to go through an extra step for some reason. I think this new system might meet the same fate as the Beta Max.
