The Old Masters – re-interpreted 155

Kon’nichiwa meiyo dokusha! And why not, eh? In this age of the global village, we honour any Japanese visitor who might, per misadventure, meander onto this page. Like all other readers, ‘Anata wa tsuneni koko de kangei shimasu‘ – which, if Auntie Google can be trusted, should mean, ‘You are always welcome here‘.

But fostering international goodwill is not only what we’re here for; especially on Wednesdays. It is time to do a Samurai on an unsuspecting, decomposing painter. So grab your weapon of choice for one round of ‘kumite’….


Alfred Stevens - cats fortune cookie reading

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.
