^^^ I'd rather go to Deer's Leap ^^^^^

This is "The Water-Lilly Pond" bu Claude Monet.
It last sold for £41 Million when the asking price was £24 million, but no-one is now willing to put an asking price to it - it's invaluable.



Show me the most valuable thing you possess.

No religion involved. That man prevented a major nuclear war from affecting the whole world. On 26 September 1983.

I'm not sure whether this is creativity in symmetry or symmetry in creativity . . . but I like it.



An image by Roddy Fox (Swedish Photographer) called the Äsperöd Green Man (if you see it from a distance, you can see the face more clearly).

Show me the best and the worst of it all.

This 16th/17th century wine flagon may have been among the first things called 'something':

Something (pron.)

Old English sum þinge; see some + thing. Hyphenated from c. 1300; one word from 17c. Formerly common as an adverb (as in something like). Meaning "some liquor, food, etc." is from 1570s. Meaning "a thing worthy of consideration" is from 1580s; emphatic form something else is from 1909. Phrase something for nothing is from 1816. To make something of is from 1778.

Zero - an oddly even number.

Show me a TV show or film which breaks the conventions.

I choose this one: Inland Empire (2006)

David Lynch. Even the name engenders a collective miasma of shuddering and confusion. Known for experimenting with generally maligned tropes of cliche, melodrama and absurdity, his mysterious career has made Lynch the very definition of polarising, garnering all kinds of fans and critics.

“Inland Empire” (2006) was listed in The Guardian’s list of the “Ten most underrated movies of the decade”, having baffled audiences since its release almost ten years ago.

What makes the film so different and challenging is the lack of a coherent plot, instead following different characters through bizarre vignettes based around one room; the film becomes a dreamlike rumination on themes of isolation and despair, rather than presenting a linear narrative. Added to this, Lynch would write each scene shortly before filming, always unsure of where the film would end, lending the film a sense of improvisation.

Two of the leads, Laura Dern and Justin Theroux, spoke of how they would often “sit around on set trying to figure out what’s going on”. Lynch’s previous film, “Mulholland Drive” (2001), was a confounding effort to many, though “Inland Empire” makes even that seem conventional.





Show me something you're proud of.
