I have in my possession a joke. It was used in a Seinfeld episode. George and Seinfeld were in a hotel room in Los Angeles. Seinfeld wrote down a joke on a napkin. He placed it on a side table. The next day it was not there. I have that napkin. The joke begins… “Why did the chicken cross the road?”

Clarisa on Saturday NightThe answer: “For a sack of cash and a good looking blonde.”

Let the bidding begin…

Oscar Gustave Rejlander

26 06 2014

One of the first photographers to use collage to some affect.  And a very strange guy to boot.

Oscar Gustave Rejlander (Sweden, 1813 – Clapham, London, 18 January 1875) was a pioneering Victorian art photographer and an expert in photomontage. His collaboration with Charles Darwin on The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals has assured him a position in the history of behavioural science and psychiatry.
