I loved his display at our Mint Museum years ago. His ikebana was breathtaking.

Plus he can rock that cyclopean mad scientist vibe. Dale has got it going on.

The art museum in my hometown hosted Chihuly's "Baskets" exhibit in 2002.  There were several pieces for sale at very reasonable prices, and I kick myself still for not picking one up.  I love glass!

His installation here sure is a beaut.  I could walk underneath that thing all day long.

Nope, not enough to make me drink something other than a quart of Sailor Jerry a night. Which was a major upgrade from Bacardi. That swill is for amateurs.

The Phoenix Botanical Garden has a HUGE Chihuly exhibit that runs nearly year round (on account of the weather), It looks like this year is the "Fire" exhibit. Very cool stuff.

But there's no way i'm buying a glass bowl for $1,500. It's still purty though.

Rev 16:13 (KJV) "And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet."
Rev 19:20 (KJV) "And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone."
Rev 20:10 (KJV) "And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever."

In Cthulhu's world, our lives have no inherent value.
In a materialist view, we are a complex arrangement of particles, and that's about it.
According to God, we have immense value to Him.

3 When I consider your heavens,
the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which you have set in place,
4 what is mankind that you are mindful of them,
human beings that you care for them?
5 You have made them a little lower than the angels
and crowned them with glory and honor.
6 You made them rulers over the works of your hands;
you put everything under their feet (Psalm 8:3-6)
Our value is given to us by God. Think about that: our value is tied not to our own actions, not what other humans say about us, but the very character of God. The creator of the universe says we're valuable: therefore, we are.
Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell. Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father's care. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows. (Matthew 10:28-31 NIV)
I think that quote is funny in its understatement. Jesus says here that we are worth something. How much? Consider this as well: God set our value through the cross. Jesus paid an enormous price for us because we were that valuable to Him.
...fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. (Hebrews 12:2)
In Cthulhu's world, our lives have no purpose.

Wait, you consider Sailor Jerry, some near bottem shelf crap that could take the rust off a bumper, over....pretty much anything else that would be taste less like it was squeezed out of a cow's spiced asshole?

I'm a fan of the 100 proof captain morgans, it has a bit different character than the normal stuff.  I've yet to find a bacardi I like.  I've had several people try to turn me on to sailor jerry's, and maybe it works well as a mix, but for sipping, it seems to have something it, like a particulate.  Maybe I had some bad batches, but it was like there were tiny tiny particles floating in it that my tongue just didn't like. The flavor was fine, but the texture wasn't.
