Something Beautiful That Doesn’t Involve Naked People.

In our never-ending quest to find something to put on the iPad that will amuse the cat we came up with this: something quite mesmerizing.

I strongly recommend you download the hi-def version and watch that.

The first Stinquer who can tell me why I chose this particular picture to accompany this post wins a romantic weekend with noje to experience the Bakersfield Birkenstock Music Festival: Socks Optional! Two days, and nights, of fun and adventure at the glamorous Days Inn.

I’ll pass on the prize, but it’s the patterns of brushwork that look like the eddy currents shown in NASA’s analysis of ocean currents.

Van Gogh(?) wasn’t all that crazy was he…

@ManchuCandidate: I’ll pass on the prize as well – Tevas are in storage – but I’d say the only thing that shifts more than ocean currents are Mitt Romney’s positions.

@ManchuCandidate: He seems to predict the shape and life of the currents. There’s a kind of Mandlebrot shape to those whorls of his which are echoed in the currents. Not for the first time have I thought that artists sometimes get out ahead of science (Prof Freud? Allow me to introduce Count Tolstoy. He’d like to talk to you about the subconscious). Isn’t it beautiful?

Thank you for your time. Now I must get back to work.

@Lost in the Negative Space: Of course you were. (huddles under wiki to get clue)

My internet connection here in the Peoples’ Republic of Smog isn’t fast enough to handle this. But I am getting an add for a gay Asian dating site.

@Benedick: Mark this day down as the one time I sent Bene to Wiki. It’s about time I’m not getting the short end of the stick, said the actress to the Bishop.

@Dodgerblue: Go for it!

@Dodgerblue: I’m getting Warren Buffet stock picks. Probably bc of the Golden Ratio thang.

@SanFranLefty: It means that I’m walking over to Beijing’s Silk Street in a while, aka Knockoff Central, for some bargaining fun. Big Jew vs experienced Chinese dreck salespeople — who will win? And no, thank you, nobody gets my credit card number.

@Dodgerblue: Ten years ago the place to buy “bargains” was directly behind the US Embassy. I thought that amusing, what with all the Rage over TM infringement and the like.

I bought ten movies for ten bucks, he threw in a couple more for free (a Beijing dozen?), and easily seven or eight of them actually worked.

Did you do the Peking Opera? Four hours of awesome. Some of the actors posed with my son afterwards, when he was all of 2yo.

@Lost in the Negative Space: “… as the actress said to the bishop.” Generations of chinless Limeys made it thus.

@Dodgerblue: Gay Asian dating site? Where the hell is Catt?


“Gay Asian dating site? Where the hell is Catt?”

Isn’t your first question the answer to your second question?
