Recently picked one of these up at the local Sonic. If they have Sonic where you live, I definitely recommend it! If not, you can always mix your own. DElicious!

Surrealism by Uwe M. Schneede © 1973
Synopsis: The art of surrealist offers some of the most intriguing, irreverent and evocative imagery ever created It delves into the unconscious’s labyrinths and unexplored caverns of the psyche, opening windows for new perceptions, unsymmetrical landscapes and shows unexpected and unknown dark corners of the mind, carving in relief the demons of madness, dreams, dragons, sickness, and hallucinations of the apparently sane mind.

Richly illustrated and fabulous and readable exploration through fundamentals works of Tanguy, Miro, Masson, Magritte, Dali, Ernst, Picasso, Bellmer, Gorky, Chirico, Matta, Dominguez,, Ray, Wols, Tanning, Delvaux and Oelze. Add too an erudite and invaluable introduction and wide comments about the expansive wave of this movement, supported by emblematic graphic material and you will have in sum an excellent guide to initiate or refresh the passionate study and analysis of this overwhelming artistic movement.
Comments: I was fortunate enough to come across this book at an estate sale recently. The person whom lived in the house must’ve have been an artist, so there was LOADS of great stuff that you normally don’t see at your run-of-the-mill estate sale. I’ve always been a big fan of Surrealism, originally getting my feet wet with Dali and eventually choosing the work of Max Ernst as my favorite Surrealist. Great book that you don’t see every day.

Weekend Update

Well, I had a great weekend. Friday, I met my dad in Fort Worth for lunch, which went smoothly. Afterwards, I did a little shopping and picked up several (different) boxes of Christmas cards, a few bottles of liquid hand soap (Lime Blossom Basil and Verbena Sage). I like that they come in GLASS dispensers. I also stopped by Barnes & Noble and picked up a couple of books, a magazine that makes me DROOL: LoftLife. OMG, just too beautiful, not to mention a shockingly affordably-priced interior design magazine ($5, compared to the usual $10 and up). I may be forced to subscribe. Continue reading



Who Loves Me, Baby? (And Does It Really Matter?)
November 11, 2009, 6:00 am
Filed under: Life

Well, there’s not much to report. I’ve made plans to meet my dad in Fort Worth on Friday around noon. He has some papers for me to sign, regarding my old vehicle (it’s still in my name) and has a second set of keys to give me (to my new car). It’s unsettling, but he was uncharacteristically loving and upbeat during our most recent phone conversation. This isn’t to say that he’s normally an ogre, it’s just not our style to be on very chatty terms. At least two-way chatty; normally he does most of the talking, talking over me when I try to talk to him.

Also, since the bank account that my mom left me has to be closed out, now that her death has come to their attention, it looks like they will be sending me the balance. I’ve decided to pay off a chunk of my remaining mortgage and refinance, which according to my sources, will significantly reduce my payments as well as FINALLY get the house in my name. I have to get this all done before the end of the year in order to avoid paying some monstrous taxes. I’m also considering investing some of it. I realize there will be some to pay taxes on, but I don’t care. I don’t want to invest any more than I feel comfortable with. One of my investment options is to invest it in the new company that I will soon be the general manager of. I have confidence that the business will succeed and even if it doesn’t, the way I have it set up, I have zero risk of losing my original investment. It’s a long story, but trust me, I’ve covered all my bases. Basically, I think it’s going to be a good return. If I didn’t, I wouldn’t bother. Continue reading
