About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.

    Ok, I’ll share my thoughts, some of them, but it is disappointing that of the present 12 bloggers who publicly declared their liking/affection for Venus, not one would tell us why. Some matters are too personal, private, I guess, to share with the public. Or one’s spouse.
    That guy clinging to Venus, he seems very possessive. Dali was one loco hombre, and we should be thankful there was only one Dali. I suspect that he could be broken up into many Dalis and later reassembled, so there was need for only one. As for Venus, she is great, no need to change her, but what about that arthropod, bug of the sea? Was it a pet? It seemed at ease. Was it kept for frequent photo shoots, continuing to present the ultimate in coolness and professionalism? Or did everyone don lobster bibs after the session and dine on it? Inquiring minds, some of them, want to know.

      That’s interesting. I call lobsters sea bugs too and have a story about that. Maybe it was dead? How could you have a lobster in a sensitive area like that if it were alive? yeccchhhh

    Looking at the bug of the sea again, I think it was cooked. If it had not been cooked, it would be darker in color.
    Generally, they are best steamed and eaten with drawn butter and lemon juice. The seafood expert Roger Berkowitz prefers them microwaved. I will provide details only if asked. I don’t know whether he actually eats them or not; perhaps, when they are placed before him, he becomes for only a moment a cultural Jew, and, after the shells are buried in the refuse, he once again puts on his yarmulke and talit. He runs a great kitchen.
