Post-Friday Beast Blogging: The Sears Family Portrait Studio Edition

RILEY:  This is my interpretation of Rodin's The Thinker, except horizontal, because you people spend way too much of your time vertical, and who the hell does their best thinking while sitting up? Okay, maybe on the toilet, but the rest of the time you're just showboating. "Ooh, look at me -- I evolved to walk erect, so everything's got to be sooo perpendicular now!"  Pah!  I'll be honest...You were a lot less pretentious and annoying when your ancestors were being chased across the savannah by my ancestors.

MOONDOGGIE:  Um, hi. This is my interpretation of Rodan's The Thinker, because I imagine with his tiny dinosaur brain, he doesn't waste a lot of time overthinking things, and just sticks to a reasonable napping schedule -- except when he's hanging with Godzilla -- and probably hides his face under his wing like a budgie.

Moondoggie: Paparazzi, AGAIN??

I'm sorry, Scott, I don't see these as Rodin - I see them as Modigliani (Riley) in reclining-almondeyed-beauty mode, and as a felinoid Dali Persistence-of-Memory type composition (Moondoggie -- that spatiality!)

Love their commentary, though. Kittiez know everything, always, and you are a good, nice, kindly amanuensis.

And of course, Li'l, that's the great thing about art: it's always open to new interpretation and a fresh perspective.

Somehow, it's not surprising that Moondoggie's a classic kaiju fan. Or that Riley would put things in their proper perspective.

Miss ZoeLuna would never be so bold as to lounge in full bodily extension. She usually snoozes in tight circular poses, making an existential statement on the circular nature of karma and life.

P.S. Please, has anyone heard from Joanna? I'm a bit worried. So is ZoeLuna.

Minx, she's been drifting in and out. Check out the Suezboo thread.

Minx, I got a truly hilarious e-mail from her last week (I somehow rate being on her e-mail group-list, don't know wot I did to earn the honor) anent an advert she found for ladies' (I use the term louchely) flavored panties. I wrote back saying she should be burning up the ether with podcasts or somethin like that. She is priceless, a volcano of stomping righteousness.
