I ******* hate this prejudice.

Everyone talking about how people with art or mucisal degrees will have to work at McDonalds or some other ****** place.
You think we were here right now, the same way we are without art and music? Goddamnit, of couse, technology and science is important, too, but how ****** up would life be if we only had our progress, but no means of education?
Without arts, literature, philosophy, music and the likes, men would actually be nothing but a highly developed monkey.
Sorry for the rage, but I hate the people who think they are superior somply because they choose the "economic" route.

This painting is called Sleep. Not my words, but here's an explanation for you.

“Sleep” is virtually a visual rendering of the body's collapse into sleep, as if it was a collapse into a separate condition of being. Against a deep blue summer sky, a huge disembodied head with eyes dissolved in sleep, hangs suspended over an almost bare landscape. The head is "soft", vulnerable and distorted. And what should be a neck tapers away to drop limply over a crutch. A dog appears on the left, its head in a crutch too, as if half asleep itself.

The head is supported above land by a series of wooden crutches. The mouth, nose and also eyes are all held in place by the crutches, suggesting that the head might collapse if they were removed. Crutches are a familiar motif in Dali’s works. As Dali attests in his book, The Secret Life of Salvador Dali, “I have often imagined the monster of sleep as a heavy, giant head with a tapering body held up by the crutches of reality. When the crutches break we have the sensation of falling.”

You´ll have to wait longer, I´m not that educated what this kind of art is concerned. Music, Literature, yes, but this, sadly no...

Not the painting, but what you said.
The painting is just Salvador Dali and his usual craziness

Ah, okay, thanks, than
Yeah, I know it´s Dali, but I never really got the appeal in his pictures. Well, tastes differ, I guess.

Because he was a great human who didn't want to keep all of his **** . If he put patents on everything, we wouldn't have the **** we have today. Tesla died a great man.

"foolish rant" - show me where I was wrong, then you might talk about foolish.
