Pup-sistence of Memory

When the art world speaks of theΒ giants of the twentieth century — Norman Rockwell, Georgia O’Keeffe, Andy Warhol, Thomas Kinkade — the name that rises above them all is the surrealist genius Salvador Dogli, whose singular vision of solid objects improbably draped over surfaces was said to be inspired by sleeping cats.

    When I was in art school there was a panel discussion of some sort and a woman panelist told a story of being in an elevator with S. Dali and, a la Capt. Queeg, he kept jingling something in his pocket. He got out of the elevator, turned around to his fellow riders and declaimed “The mustache is not enough!”

    (Does Thomas Kinkade really belong in this group??????)

    PS, I love this posting! Especially hover text!

      Murray, I agree with you about Kinkade, he shouldn’t be in this grouping.

      • Smartypants April 28, 2016 / 1:22 pm

        Yes, I’m pretty sure NTMTOM is teasing πŸ˜€

        • Murray C. April 28, 2016 / 2:11 pm

          I thought so, too, but I couldn’t help making a snarky remark.😝

          • Ricky's Mom April 28, 2016 / 5:41 pm

            Maybe we should be grateful he left out Bob Ross?

            • Murray April 28, 2016 / 11:28 pm

              Hee, Hee. Poor ol’ Bob – at least he didn’t come across as a narcissist. “Painter of light” indeed. Monet is only painter of light I’m likely to recognize. 🌞🎨

          • 6rabbits April 28, 2016 / 8:17 pm

            I agree with your snarky remark, and would have made it if you hadn’t!

  2. Lurkingduck April 28, 2016 / 11:15 am

    Wait, what?!?!

  3. allein April 28, 2016 / 11:22 am

    That’s quite the impressive mousetache…

    • Gigi_the cat lady April 28, 2016 / 12:24 pm

      I see what you did there πŸ˜€

      • allein April 28, 2016 / 1:23 pm

        Perhaps that’s why he’s inspired by cats…

  4. Tigrenska Jourard April 28, 2016 / 11:25 am

    Does anyone else remember the Charles Schulz character in Peanuts, a girl named Freda with “naturally curly hair” who carried around her boneless cat called Faron?

    • Murray C. April 28, 2016 / 11:46 am

      Yes, tho’ I didn’t know the cat’s name – I thought of it immediately, however, on reading the hover text.πŸ˜„

  5. Mariana Paes April 28, 2016 / 11:28 am

    and thusly NTMTOM assured his place in the above referenced roup of giants

  6. Catwhisperer April 28, 2016 / 12:54 pm

    Could cat mustaching be the next thing?

  7. Smartypants April 28, 2016 / 12:56 pm

    Small world…noticing the ‘Life of Pikelet’ watermark – I think this is the same charming pittie who appeared with sprinkles on his/her nose a few days ago.

    • Alice Shortcake April 29, 2016 / 7:41 am

      I thought they looked familiar! And the story behind those ultra-cute pics serves as a reminder not to buy puppies from pet stores.

    • Murray C. April 28, 2016 / 2:13 pm

      Yes! Yet another of my fave cartoonists of all time.

      • debg April 28, 2016 / 3:35 pm

        yes

      • Phred's Mom April 28, 2016 / 5:09 pm

        Yes, indeedy.
        Miss him.

          • birdcage April 28, 2016 / 5:39 pm

            And here’s my fav Larson of all time:

            • Faye April 28, 2016 / 5:40 pm

              I. M. Ded. Thank. You. Birdcage.

              • birdcage April 28, 2016 / 5:42 pm

                *administers CPR to Faye”

                • Murray April 28, 2016 / 6:04 pm

                  Had no idea you could get certified for cyber CPR!

                  • Faye April 28, 2016 / 9:18 pm

                    Ahhh. I’m up but my belly hurts from the belly laughs.

            • 6rabbits April 28, 2016 / 8:27 pm

              My fav:

              • Murray April 28, 2016 / 10:06 pm

                Fabulous – I never saw that one!!! Now I have to go looking for my fave. (Trundles off, stage left)

                • Murray C. May 2, 2016 / 4:11 pm

                  I found mine but didn’t know how to post – it’s called “Song Writers of the Old West”.

                  • mariana May 2, 2016 / 4:40 pm

                    • Murray May 2, 2016 / 5:51 pm

                      Thank you, Mariana.😊

                • Murray C. May 2, 2016 / 4:14 pm

                  I have a menu idea for a (keep in mind, silly!) party with what I call my S&M menu – things like Black and Blue Fish, Beets, Club sandwiches, Flayed Flounder, Whipped Cream, Mashed Potatoes, Creamed Spinach, Battered Shrimp…….etc.

                  • allein May 2, 2016 / 4:28 pm

                    Sounds kinky. πŸ˜‰

            • Clairdelune April 29, 2016 / 2:19 pm

              I MISS Gary Larson!!! His cartoons in the Sunday papers were the highlight of my Sunday mornings – Larson and a good cup of coffee. Simple pleasures. Sigghh

    • Faye April 28, 2016 / 5:24 pm

      This Larson made me snort out loud. Luckily I’m alone except for you all.

  8. Gigi_the cat lady April 28, 2016 / 1:18 pm

    OK #1 – Yes it’s the same pittie that had sprinkle on it’s nose and # 2 – listen to NTMTOM and go check out the story on Bored Panda the photo of the 3 of them with their paws sticking out from under the covers killed me ded!

      • Faye April 28, 2016 / 5:39 pm

        Spellbinding.

    • 6rabbits April 28, 2016 / 8:34 pm

      So stinkin’ cute are those dogs! The new pup is adorbs and needing many snorgles!πŸ˜‰
      (BTW…A pox upon you, vile people selling 5 wk old pups to pet store!😑)

  9. Faye April 28, 2016 / 5:27 pm

    I didn’t think I could hold NTMTOM in any higher esteem. This post pushed my esteem up another notch.

    • birdcage April 28, 2016 / 5:41 pm

      Pardon me, but you’re going to need to apply for an air rights usage certificate for that level of esteem. Luckily for you, my legal practice encompasses these types of air rights applications and I can give you a great deal on my legal fees.

      • Faye April 28, 2016 / 9:07 pm

        Well worth the fee. How high can I go? Sky’s the limit? To the moon?

        • Murray April 28, 2016 / 10:05 pm

          Full esteem ahead?

          • Faye April 28, 2016 / 10:48 pm

            Upward bound!

  10. Clairdelune April 29, 2016 / 2:23 pm

    Maybe I’m weird, but the first thing I thought of was a quintessential movie villain, curling up the ends of his long mustache with a sinister cackle. πŸ˜€

    • Emmberrann May 2, 2016 / 2:35 pm

      You are not weird Clair, I thought the same thi… wait, maybe I’m weird, too…. *makes “Twilight Zone” noise*

    • allein May 2, 2016 / 2:44 pm

      Somewhere there is a girl-pup tied to some train tracks..
