Check out Dali on youtube. Whats my Line or I've got a Secret I think. Pretty funny.

I agree with Sister Wendy Beckett. Dali has technical chops, but the stuff he creates is grotesque and unappealing.

"Grotesque and unappealing" you say?

Fascinating.

Thats the great thing about Jackson Pollack paintings. You get too close, they got this kind of defensive field effect. Kinda like the juggler babes in Shogun Assassin.

Is this the guy that did the film with a cloud crossing the moon, then a slicing of the cow eyeball sequence?

In other news, a young virgin was found autosodomized by her own chastity.

Actually, most of the highest-dollar art thefts apparently involve people just grabbing the damned things and walking out. The Louvre heist was a dude that bypassed security by taking a box-cutter and removing the paintings form the frame, right?

Luis Bunel directed the film Un Chien Andalou (The Andalusian Dog). Dali appeared in it.

A talented man but his constant falling into daytime reverie while working on more than one occasion prompted his contemporaries to tell him "Don't dilly, Dali."

The fact that it's physically possible to just pull something like this off the wall and walk away with it should really wake up their insurance company. Boggles my mind they wouldn't have it in some kind of inclosure.

Is it just me or is the real story that a Salvador Dali piece is only worth $150,000?

Dali had some famous works, The Persistence of Memory, but later in life he produced many etching and lithographs that aren't that famous. Also, rumor had it he signed blank canvas' at some point for the money. It was a small painting too. I think 150 grand isn't bad for Dali. Although he is interesting but I think he's best only in small doses. It's like having a white zin over a merlot. The zin can be nice once in a while, but the merlot has a quality that can be enjoyed every time.

Whew...Not my favorite Dali.

/glad nobody beat me to it.

I don't think people realize how prolific he was. The farker painted for like 60 years. He's got a shiatload of paintings out there. Actually, a vast number of them are pretty badass, IMO.

mc_madness: I have a 7 inch penis.

So to get the length of ones actual penis you divide the length of their internet penis by 3.

So if your internet penis is 7" your actual penis is 2 1/3".

My internet penis is 21"

I would say he probably had trouble walking with those massive clanking balls, but they were probably melted anyway.

/big dali fan
//hallucinogenic toreador has long been one of my favorites. when I visited the Dali Museum in St Petersburg in my one and only trip to FL, I saw the original and was agog. It was 12 farking feet tall and almost 10 feet wide. Just blew my farking mind even that much more. He had cut a hole in the floor of the loft where he was working, and used a pulley system to raise and lower the canvas as he worked on sections of it. There was a similar sized second painting that I know of from that time but I forget which one it was.

///the matron who sponsored that museum died last year (?, year before) and I do not know the current status of it. Let it not be said that FL is totally devoid of culture. I was amazed when I found out that it was there, and I went, by serendipity, on the one night of the week that they gave a guided tour, with a free movie and cookies and punch.

//// and the movie was 'City Of Lost Children' with Ron Perlman. Highly recommended if you like a good surrealistic flick. again, another discovery by serendipity.
