I'm an artist and could discuss this stuff all day.
I thought they'd make an illuminating choice for all the reasons you listed. Le Guere is actually one of his "nicer" paintings imo, because it's not the subject matter of his paintings that trouble me, but cubism itself, and iirc Le Guere is early work that isn't really cubist. I'm not art history major and could be suffering from faulty memory on that point, and i'm unwilling to check myself before i wreck myself at the moment.

Picasso's cubism scares me because i feel that it implies that the universe can eventually be fully defined in humanly understandable mathematical equations. Cubism lacks pi, ignores pi, denies pi; and/or implies that pi will be solved. It further postulates, imo, that emotion itself can and will eventually be qualified and quantified in mathematical theorem.

I fear that he was right. It scares me more than almost anything else i can think of.

Re: this or that

Also, to double post for a bad reason, i saw a domesticated large-ish dog (rottweiler mix) attack a porcupine just off Forked Lake in the Adirondacks when i was 10 or 11 years old. The dog lived longer, but both died, and the porcupine probably had the easier time of it.

Interesting.
There are a bunch of theorists that think just that, that life and everything as we know can be broken down into mathematics. That's ok, because consider it the armature that holds everything upright and allows gravity to do its work. LOL

What a choice!
Ted Nugent. Zappa has thoughtful lyrics in a dark way, and actually good tunes. Ted drives home his music and damn, I'm sorta with his philosophy. He's from Michigan, too, so Ted Nugent is my choice.

best showman in their prime...Billy Joel or Elton John

immediately one thinks EJ as he's more flamboyant, but BJ has such a great connection with his audiences

Re: this or that

Elton John not even close.

I'd say greatest showman includes the ability to reach out to a bigger audience. You might have an amazingly intimate performance from Billy Joel that Elton could never match, but it would need a more intimate setting than Elton would ever play.

Now, ask me whose music i prefer, and you'll get the opposite answer.

Funny that i'm currently reading a scholarly work on Chaos Theory, which i guess should help. Maybe it will. It's changing my perspective for sure; i'll give Picasso another chance afterward, but i'll almost certainly still prefer Dali even if Picasso doesn't actually scare me anymore.

Re: this or that

Jeff Probst (Survivor host) or Phil Keoghan (Amazing Race host)?

Both are charming, polite, well spoken. Jeff gets to talk more as he has more interaction with the contestants, but I dunno, Phil connects quite well at the mat, and he's got the eyebrow move.
