The Old Masters – re-interpreted 61

Greetings dear Readers – I trust you’re both well and ready to vandalise the venerable characters of the Old Masters? This week’s victim…er…subject is Francis Goya and his misinterpretation of 21st century show business.

Cirque du Soleil's producer collapses with a breakdown after the cancellation of the disastrous Shrek XVII's thirteenth performance to an empty house. Critics condemned Eddie Murphy's lacklustre performance which is reflected in Donkey's indifference towards the ailing director.

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.
