Happy Birthday, Pablo Picasso!

Picasso - Copy

Today would be the 133rd birthday of painter Pablo Picasso:

Pablo Ruiz y Picasso, also known as Pablo Picasso (25 October 1881 – 8 April 1973) was a Spanish painter, sculptor, printmaker, ceramicist, stage designer, poet and playwright who spent most of his adult life in France. As one of the greatest and most influential artists of the 20th century, he is known for co-founding the Cubist movement, the invention of constructed sculpture, the co-invention of collage, and for the wide variety of styles that he helped develop and explore.

Below is a photo of a popular aquarium fish that was apparently named after Picasso.

Isn’t it beautiful? The Picasso Triggerfish is also known, in Hawaiian, as the humuhumunukunukuāpuaʻa.  Now there’s a mouthful!

Was the fish named after the artist because they share physical characteristics (schnozz and eyes) or because the fish is brightly “painted?” Your guess is as good as mine.

Below is an image of a crater on the planet Mercury, which was also named after Picasso:

It’s hard to determine whether or not the crater was named for Picasso on account of any similarity between the crater’s features and, perhaps, Picasso’s; but apparently geological features on Mercury are named for

deceased artists, musicians, painters, and authors who have made outstanding or fundamental contributions to their field and have been recognized as art historically significant figures for more than 50 years.

Volcanic activity caused the strange characteristics of this particular crater. One blogger wrote:

Features like this are important to planetary scientists because they indicate the existence of subsurface volcanic activity at some point in Mercury’s geologic past. That it’s got a funny shape is just coincidentally amusing. …

I guess it kind of makes the crater look like a face too. If your sense of humor is more G-rated than mine.

I don’t know what that writer sees, but I do perceive a face there, at least a face as Picasso was wont to render them:

Wikipedia tells us that Picasso was co-founder of Cubism, along with Georges Braque. Seems to me that the Haida of the Pacific Northwest beat Picasso and Braque to the punch:

The Cubists did, however, look to the art of other peoples for inspiration. Perhaps they were also inspired by roadkill:

Don’t get me wrong. I do love Picasso’s work, which seems to render three-dimensional objects in two dimensions. That smashed alligator is a reasonable facsimile of the style.

Below is a photo of Picasso with two of his avant garde pals, in 1916:

    I’m sorry. I never liked Picasso. And here’s why.

    http://wmbriggs.com/blog/?p=6015

    • He was a die-hard commie, too. I do like his art, though, if not the person himself. He had a different way of seeing things. I just don’t like that they imagine that he and his cohort invented it, when the Haida saw things that way, too.

  3. back to complaining.
    MLK was a Republican watch uhaul misquote him. 😡

  4. My favorite artist.

    Reminds me to remember that the so called natives, ‘First Americans” were actually immigrants – as they crossed the Bering Strait and descended south – were actually Mongolians… Asians, lest we forget as we’re re-educated.

    I honor my Mother’s slits for almond-shaped eyes that sit upon her bony cheekbones, her poker straight black hair, her wide, flat nose. I see you are closing on 90, Madonna, and I can count your white hairs one by one. And your husband, burnt red, and nary a whisker, my Father. I see.

    To be American, its a beautiful thing. I bleach my hair blonde, and draw lines of kohl and splash shimmery gold on my eyelids like Cleopatra, nevertheless.

    I see.

    People are becoming outspoken about it now. Read the comments. Some have known since ’07…the man from nowhere. Not wanting to believe, some (including myself) after KNOWING in our spirits quivocated….oh perhaps not. Perhaps it’s another. May God forgive me for doubting that which He instilled in my heart from the very beginning. Seems as if a lot of per are being spoken to in spirit. https://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=9kRKMSu7WBc.

    • ARGHH. Which video did you want us to see, RW? I get a big collage to choose from, when I click your link. I want to see these comments.

      • Rosemary Woodhouse

        • Thanks, RW, although I don’t feel better after listening to that. I do think we here “knew” from the beginning. I remember us talking about it from the beginning–how we felt the first time we saw and heard him. The funny thing is that I don’t feel that fear anymore, like I did in the beginning, when the hairs would rise up on the back of my neck, when I used to shiver when I heard his voice and then hurried to turn it off. It’s like he’s somehow lost his power. Could it be so?

          • Rosemary Woodhouse

            I still can’t listen to him. Did you read the comments? Two that stood out were : a) the person who listed 10 reasons and b) the artist who depicted him perfectly and whose young children were so freaked out by the portrait she had to erase it with turpentine.

        Not to mention that discussion of radioactivity/pollution as a result of Fukushima has gone silent.

        Maybe Fukushima translates to Wormwood (shrug)

        Revelation 8:9-11New Life Version (NLV)

        9 One-third part of all sea life died. One-third part of all the ships were destroyed.
        The Third Horn—the Star of Poison

        10 The third angel blew his horn. A large star fell from heaven. It was burning with a fire that kept burning like a bright light. It fell on one-third part of the rivers and on the places where water comes out of the earth. 11 The name of the star is Wormwood. One-third part of the water became poison. Many men died from drinking the water because it had become poison.

  7. Scary Stuff!
    The nurse forcibly quarantined in New Jersey after she came home from treating Ebola patients in West Africa will be released Monday, state officials said. Kaci Hickox has been held against her will in a tent outside a New Jersey medical center since she was taken off a flight, flushed and distraught, Friday. Hickox has hired a lawyer and spoken out publicly against her quarantine.

    “Since testing negative for Ebola on early Saturday morning, the patient being monitored in isolation at University Hospital in Newark has thankfully been symptom free for the last 24 hours,” New Jersey health department officials said in a statement. “As a result, and after being evaluated in coordination with the CDC and the treating clinicians at University Hospital, the patient is being discharged.”

    The case quickly escalated over the weekend, with Hickox protesting from her confinement and scientists including Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, saying there was no medical basis to hold her. The White House even weighed in, pressing New York and New Jersey to reverse their decisions to quarantine all returning medical workers who have treated Ebola patients.

    Hickox will be allowed to take private transport home to Maine. “Since the patient had direct exposure to individuals suffering from the Ebola Virus in one of the three West African nations, she is subject to a mandatory New Jersey quarantine order,” the statement read.

    “Health officials in Maine have been notified of her arrangements and will make a determination under their own laws on her treatment when she arrives.”
    SNIP

    Ebola is not detectable, any more than HIV or Lyme, in it’s early stages.
    Ebola antibodies do not become plentiful in the bloodstream until the
    infection is getting pretty serious.

    So despite the howls of outrage, you can’t prove I have Ebola, you can’t
    prove I have HIV! it takes some time – the quarrantime time, for any testing
    to become reliable.

    So I am extremely unimpressed with this nurse and I am extremely unimpressed with the decision to release her.

    I recently decided to send monthly support payments to MSF, but I have
    told them today that if they can’t control their doctors from scampering about NYC, then they can count me out. I doubt they will care that much but I am close to adding my name to the petitions to close the dam border
    tp anyone coming from West Africa.

  8. Interesting article on the spread of Ebola http://www.thecommonsenseshow.com/2014/10/26/ebola-data-suggests-that-you-have-a-44-chance-of-contracting-the-virus/

    “There has been much made in the alternative media that the Ebola virus is a hoax. The only way, at the moment, that this claim can be substantiated is to get one’s hands on lab samples and perform an analysis. Until this can be done, that claim is pure conjecture. However, if Ebola fails to spread in the manner described above, then we can conclude that this is not Ebola, but rather, a bioweapon.”

    • Now they’re saying that the Ebola virus lives on surfaces for as long as 50 days. It lives the longest on surfaces that are about 39 degrees, so that means it lives longer in cold climates, unlike in Africa. Welcome to NYC in the winter.

  9. For sure 🙂

    Worse than anything Nixon ever did:

    “A former CBS News reporter who quit the network over claims it kills stories that put President Obama in a bad light says she was spied on by a “government-related entity” that planted classified documents on her computer.

    In her new memoir, Sharyl Attkisson says a source who arranged to have her laptop checked for spyware in 2013 was “shocked” and “flabbergasted” at what the analysis revealed.

    “This is outrageous. Worse than anything Nixon ever did. I wouldn’t have believed something like this could happen in the United States of America,” Attkisson quotes the source saying. …

    Attkisson says the source, who’s “connected to government three-letter agencies,” told her the computer was hacked into by “a sophisticated entity that used commercial, nonattributable spyware that’s proprietary to a government agency: either the CIA, FBI, the Defense Intelligence Agency or the National Security Agency.” …

    But the most shocking finding, she says, was the discovery of three classified documents that Number One told her were “buried deep in your operating system. In a place that, unless you’re a some kind of computer whiz specialist, you wouldn’t even know exists.”

    “They probably planted them to be able to accuse you of having classified documents if they ever needed to do that at some point,” Number One added. …”

  12. Rosemary Woodhouse

    And I know I repeat this but the #2 reason (#1…see above) he will not be impeached is he is purportedly 1/2 black. Ferguson was a 24/7 warning. As I posited I. ’07, black is his Teflon.

  20. We’ve been talking for a while about evil. Dr. Eowyn had a great post lately about demons. http://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2014/10/20/the-demon-is-coming-out-of-obama-again/

    Now there’s this story about the Pope blessing a conclave of 300 exorcists and how he asserts that yes, the devil is real. http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2014/10/28/Pope-Blesses-Work-of-Exorcists

    I probably should stop right there, butttttt I cannot resist: Would the Pope know the devil if he came face to face with him? I wouldn’t have been laughing and smiling during such a meeting, as the Pope was. I’m just sayin’.

  21. Rosemary Woodhouse

    Well, O has his role to play and so does the pope. Unless a caliphate is established before then. Right now, too many people KNOW it’s soon.

    Miri, listen to the new Boldsolja4Christ video. Exact same thing I wrote about immediately after the WH security breeches. Many are receiving the same message. SOON.

  22. Peter O’Toole had two “valid” birth certificates with two different birth countries. Steyn believes it’s relatively simple with a relatively small number of co-conspirators to pull off the fake BC. He says it’s not far-fetched at all to believe as “birthers” believe.

  24. Brown’s autopsy reportedly supported claims that there was a “significant altercation at the car” prior to the deadly shooting. Judy Melinek, a forensic pathologist in San Francisco, told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that she didn’t think the autopsy supported claims that Brown was shot while surrendering with his hands up.

    Further, a toxicology report also showed that Brown had tetrahydrocannabinol, also known as THC, in his blood and urine. ~ O’ !

  26. THC stimulates cells in the brain to release dopamine, creating Euphoria.
    It also Interferes with HOW Information is Processed in the hippocampus,
    responsible 4 forming new memories. THC can induce hallucinations, change thinking and cause delusions & exaggerated grandiose emotions when ordered to OBEY…. as this has been proven in prior studies.

  27. Liars. Butt what else is new? Just yesterday, they adamantly denied planning to bring Ebola-infected non-citizens to the U.S. for treatment. They said it was only a plan to allow other countries to use our planes to evacuate their citizens back to their own countries. Now this: http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2014/10/confirmed-state-dept-memo-shows-obama-admin-is-going-to-move-ebola-patients-to-us-video/

    Memo proves they lied. Liars all. They just lie until caught and when caught they pass the buck, stonewall, or lie some more.

  28. Cheaters. Butt what else is new? Just recently, there were reports that a politician who voted Republican on a machine kept seeing his votes changed to DemoncRAT. Now it’s happening in another state to other citizens: http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2014/10/maryland-voters-report-republican-to-democrat-ballot-switch-claims/

    They cheat until caught and when caught they lie (there’s no evidence of vote fraud), pass the buck, stonewall, or claim nothing can be changed until there’s an investigation. In the meantime, “let every (illegal) vote count!”

  29. Alec Rawls website Error Theory is one of my favorite websites. He argues politically but with science and did a great job trying to stop the Flight 93 memorial from becoming a terrorist pointer towards mecca, but the article that I recommend here is a very well thought out plan to keep ebola confined and eliminated at the place of it’s outbreak.
    It’s a long article but if you have the time, I recommend it.
    http://errortheory.blogspot.co.uk/
    He points out that our mandatory screening program combined with no flight ban guarantees to an infected person in Africa that if that person can make it to an American airport, their care will be assured.
    This is, in effect, a pressure gardient that attracts sick people to uninfected countries. Lots about pressure gradients. It’s a good article.

    Part 1 of 5: Some observations from a long-time reader on this website; I have been in contact with Susan Daniels for several years and I have found her to be a straight-arrow, hard working in her fight to expose Obama’s fraud, & by her lawsuit 12M653 filed Jul 2, 2012 in the Geauga County Common Pleas Court to demand that Ohio’s Sec of State Husted remove Obama’s name from the Ohio general election ballot until Obama prove his SSN to be valid.

    Part 2 of 5: The Soc Sec number that Obola-the usurper uses is 042-68-4425 issued by CT on March 28 1977. How do I know the issuance date? By researching numerous SSN’s just before & after the SSN that Obola uses. Here is a short version of my SSN list, and common sense tells me that the SSN that Obola uses fits right in to have been issued by CT on March 28, 1977 (CYD = Cycle date. The date the SSN record was established or corrected.):

    Susan Jo Davis – appl: Mar 17, 1977 – SSN: 042-68-4374 – CYD: Mar 28, 1977
    Thomas Louis Wood – appl: Mar 21, 1977 – SSN: 042-68-4424 – CYD: 03/28/1977
    Unknown person – appl: unknown – SSN: 042-68-4425 – (SSN used by Obama (Soetoro/Soebarkah) to register for the Selective Service & to file Fed Tax 1040) – CYD: unknown
    Paul Michael Graziano – appl: Mar 16, 1977 – SSN: 042-68-4429 – CYD: 03/28/1977
    Margaret A. Bossing – appl: Feb 14, 1977 – SSN: 042-68-4437 – CYD: Mar 28, 1977

    Part 3 of 5: The complete SS-5 record for SSN 042-68-4424 issued by Soc Sec Admin can be viewed at Orly’s website (scroll down to see the SS-5 appl form signed by Thomas Wood’s mother Carole Wood on 3/21/77):
    http://www.orlytaitzesq.com/great-news-we-can-pin

    Part 4 of 5: I also did research on Virginia Sunahara and found the ship manifest where her father Tomio Sunahara came to Hawaii at age 4 yrs in the ship ‘Siberia Maru’ from Yokohama, Japan in Aug, 1929 along with Tomio’s father Kaoru Sunahara (age 29 on arrival) & mother Shizuko Sunahara (age 27 on arrival) & Tomio’s brothers & sisters (Virginia’s aunts & uncles).

    Using the Latter Day Saints’ extensive genealogical database, I found Tomio Sunahara’s
    spouse Clara Chung Hee PARK Sunahara Wataoka and Tomio & Clara’s son Duncan Hiroki Sunahara, (Virginia’s brother) who as I recall, tried to obtain his sister Virginia Sunahara’s original long-form birth certificate, but was denied by the Hawaii Dept of Health.

    Part 5 of 5: For those who like military history, I also found Tomio Sunahara’s WWII military records, including that he survived the crash landing of the military transport airplane (21 passengers, all Japanese-American infantrymen) flight home in Nov 1945 near Auburn, CA, which was trying to land in McClellan Field near Sacramento, CA. I found the account of the crash landing on this no-longer-active-website: http://www.donrjordan.com/theauburnc47_1.html

    The Auburn C-47B – “Lost on Final Approach” – A/C 43-16374 -November 28, 1945 – Copyright 2002 – By Don R. Jordan 9/26/07

    In the unlikely event that Obola is a ‘Natural Born Citizen’ & eligible to have run as President under our Constitution, why did he need a stolen SSN, a falsified Selective Service registration, & a birth certificate number stolen from a little girl born (& died one day later) in HI at the time of Obola’s supposed birth in HI?

    • It would be interesting to learn the ages of the people who were issued cards around the same time as the # Barry uses. If all of them were of retirement age or older, it lends credence to what some say about how people who didn’t have SS#’s before had to get them in order to qualify for Medicare or some other type of social benefit, like nursing home care. I don’t remember what people found about Thomas Wood.

      just more weird phenomena or obfuscation or ?
      I went to Dora Zepeda’s Facebook the other day. Seems there may be a reason Ms R. Ndesandjo says she’s a grandmother. It appears that possibly Joseph and Dora have adopted a little Valentina. At least from her Facebook, it certainly appears so. Maybe that’s why somebody a bit earlier had found the Ndesandjo’s connected with some school/preschool in Texas. Don’t remember the name of school….started with a P I think.
