I hate that band.

Sorry mate.

You must be talking about the post-Syd years. We don't consider them Pink Floyd because well the pink one lost his shit and jumped into the abyss of lunacy never to be heard from again. They get to be Floyd. Not Pink Floyd.

RE: Art That You Like
Another painting I've always loved is called Las Meninas By Velazquez. There's so much going on in this painting.

Velazquez is in the midst of painting King Philip IV and his wife, Mariana of Austria. You can see them posing for the painting reflected in a mirror on the back wall. Velazquez is painting himself painting them while others are viewing the painting being painted but being painted themselves. Two people are looking directly at the King and Queen posing for the painting. We, the viewer, are standing where the King and Queen are standing as reflected in the mirror which makes us part of the painting. I also love the little boy on the right side of the canvas who has his foot on the dog, giving it a push. It's a snapshot of life before cameras were invented. Fantastic piece of art.

Not sure if she has been posted here ( if she has fantastic!) but I'm a rather large fan of Laura Zombie and her paintings. While she has a lot that don't appeal to me what does, I adore.

And my best friend bought this the same day I got my first because we have EXACTLY the same taste in art to the point it's freakish.

My friend herself is a gifted photographer and all around amazing artist and I have a few pieces on my wall which I personally value above all other possessions except one. They were a Christmas Gift ironically enough. Laugh out load

I have a friend who's a mezzo, but she's still too young to sing Carmen. She is, in my opinion, an excellent singer with a beautiful voice. I hope to have a chance some day to see her perform Carmen.

They always make ballerinas dance on their tippy-toes. Wouldn't it be easier just to hire taller ballerinas?

But seriously, that was magnificent.
