The Old Masters – re-interpreted 15

I’m afraid I’ve been away from the interweb for the past couple of weeks and have been unable to post. However, I am back and we can’t let the Old Masters get away with it for too long.

goya - cirque du soleil and shrek never worked

The producer’s attempt to combine a performance of Cirque du Soleil and Shrek was doomed to failure from the start.

The bloke responsible for this was Goya – if you must know.

About Freud Fission Chips

Despite the banality of the name, FFC has led an intensely varied life. Grateful for surviving almost three years as a 'troepie' (soldier for non-South African Readers) in the Angolan war, he determined to wring as much out of life as possible. Currently providing Business Analysis services, trading on the stock market and developing web pages to pay the bills, FFC also dabbles in wildlife, landscape and people photography, writing, and far too many interests for his own good. He has also travelled extensively in southern Africa (working on the sound theory that a moving target is more dificult to hit). These peregrinations also include over 1500kms on foot through some of the worlds most spectacular scenery. It hasn't all been plain sailing, beer and skittles, and endless beds of roses... Chief amongst the prerequisites for surviving Africa, with its mind-bending characteristics, is an appropriate sense of humour.... So, for now, he will be recounting the amusing among the annoying, the frustrating wrapped in the funny and extracting the mirth from the melancholy... Oh yes, there might be some alliteration too.

    I looked at this for a while, and honestly – I had no idea what Goya was painting. Looked it up and apparently entitled “Witches in the air” which at least gives it some context I suppose. There is no additional comment I can come up with that is suitable for a family page. Quite a few that aren’t.

    Wait – here’s one: “Terrance still wasn’t sure if the ‘kissing and tickling in the air” form of the Spanish Inquisition was more or less cruel”.
