Thinking Chaos, Thinking Fences

This is for those who descend into the code

I posted my query about an Internet painting database on LazyWeb. One Michael Fagan promptly replied to me, and suggested Artcylopedia. This page features plenty of information and links to my man Henri, including my favourite painting.

In his LazyWeb comment, Michael also points to his super-groovy image search engine.

Freakgirlspew (whose name I don't know, but feel I should), who was formely an agent, responds to my response on actors and gender inequity:

A horrible part of being an agent (which was a mostly great carreer) for me was constantly having to remind women actors that they have to look a certain way (stick figure with boobs). Most of the few female roles out there require very slender gals who also happen to be "fabulous" looking.

There are also some handy tips for actors.

Continuing on this week's German theme, let me introduce you to some very fine chocolate: Ritter Sport! My friend Hugh Grant (not that Hugh Grant) introduced me to these fine squares of joy while living in Ireland.

My favourite aspect of the Ritter Sport bar is its opening mechanism. You just break the still-packaged bar along the dotted line on the back and the wrapper magically opens! I scanned this badboy for your vicarious delight:

There are about twenty different flavours. It's also very fun to say if you make the 's' in 'sport' more of an 'sh'.

I happened upon these German delights in the yuppie fest that is Urban Fare. It's imported, and there's a sticker (sort of visible above) that covers some other languages (including some kind of Arabic) with English, French and Italian.
