TV for thumbsuckers

What is a television apparatus to man, who has only to shut his eyes to see the most inaccessible regions of the seen and the never seen, . . . to pierce through walls and cause all the planetary Baghdads of his dreams to rise from the dust.

-- Salvador Dali

Dali wasn't terribly fond of TV, and I remember his 1968 TV Guide cover:


I was 14 years old, and the image of the TV as a thumbnail never left me.

Who knows? Considering that in the future music may flow through our bodies, maybe we'll be able to watch video on our thumbnails.

The persistence of computer memory?

What, you're expecting a thought-out post at this stage of the blog?

Surely, you're kidding!

Why, it's all I can do to upload a picture of Medusa!


Bear in mind that the galleries call the above "Manto" -- which is wrong. But I can't get into serious art criticism or history right now.

UPDATE: What the hell is the time doing? Are we on US time or Dali tieeeeme?!? (FWIW, it's 11:14 right now, and it was 10:50 when I published the post.)

Watches will be violated regularly, regardless of time. Time voyeurs, suspend your disbelief and wait.
