An overview of recent images that would have ended up in my parallel blog Art's Potpourri (now stopped). Clicking the icons in the left side of the table takes you to the picture on the site where I found it in a new window. The text includes a link to the site.
The IKEA experience. This funny image is spot on, and I would have found it even funnier had I not recently visited one and got annoyed about it once more (Just for fun). First seen here.
There, I fixed it. An example of sheer stupidity taken from a collection 25+ Reasons Why Women Live Longer Than Men. Some well-known, some new (Mixed Nuts). First seen here.
LEGO bird feeder. One of my favourite childhood toys was the big box full of LEGO pieces. I love this bird feeder, also because it's a great photograph (Amazing Stuff). First seen here.
The world's largest artificial sun. The German organization DLR installed this in Juelich last month - 149 times the energy used for a large cinema screen (Amazing Stuff). First seen here.
Butterfly wings scarves. Beautiful butterfly wings scarves designed and handpainted by Dorota Drzewiecka from Poland (Special Designs). First seen here.
100 Game of Thrones memes. Literally, a hundred of them based on the TV series. Not every one is great, but I do love a lot of them, and can't wait for season 7 (Just for Fun). First seen here.
Dragon table. I've always had something with dragons for some reason - even using it in my internet names for years, This 400 dollars table is a beauty (Special Designs). First seen here.
Give cyclists space.... The irony is strong in this one - just one example of a number of mind boggling stupid acts and designs in the link (Mixed Nuts). First seen here.
Terra Ronca caves. These caves in Brazil are among the most beautiful in the world. The link includes many pictures of this awe inspiring place (Natural Beauty). First seen here.

About me: Dutchman, married to a beautiful and highly talented artist from Shanghai. Although my education (PhD chemistry) is very much associated with the left side of the brain, I like to use my right side for my hobbies: music, art, photography.
About this blog: I started this blog in August 2006, just wanting to share what I considered interesting pieces of visual art and music. I suffered from blogging blues for most of 2008, but making a fresh start in October of that year has done wonders for my inspiration. In case you did not notice, most posts end with a small symbol... just click that for the relevant link. All pictures in my blog are hosted on blogger - if some do not show up (the red cross syndrome) it is a blogger hiccup. Right click and selecting "show picture" should do the trick.
About the reconstruction:
End March 2017 I converted thousands of posts to draft, in order to sort out potential copyright issues. Many of these will be restored in the course of the year.
