The Old Masters – re-interpreted 164

Welcome. It’s good to see not EVERYONE on the planet is dying (literally in some cases) to wander around like a reject from the set of The Walking Dead, looking for cartoon creatures in their phones. I’m sorry chaps and chapettes – a Pokémon will remain a Rastafarian proctologist until a more amusing definition comes along, and no amount of marketing genius will induce me to take to the streets with my nose buried in my mobile phone.

Dear Reader, I shall not send you out into the weather to find non-existent drawings.  Here, you can recline at your leisure and use your wit to wither the reputations of an expired painter. Orazio Gentileschi is today’s victim.

Orazio Gentileschi

It’s the bloke in the corner with the half-jack of brandy. He says he will pay you $5 to play chopstix and $50 to play the radio instead.


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.
