Salvador Dali ~ “The Stillness of Time”, 1975
Also known as “La Noblesse du Temps, Persistance de la memoire”, Dali infused this masterpiece with elements he depicted during his own lifelong obsession with sex and the fleeting passage of time. With the bravura of an Old Master draftsman, Dalí delineates with great flourish the figures flanking the melting timepiece.
Sensuously rendered, Venus stands at the left holding a mirror, an attribute for vanity and lust. She is self-absorbed and seemingly unaware that she is entangled in Vulcan’s net. At the right sits an angel, a divine messenger of life and death, in contemplation before the keeper of time in our waking state. In the dream state, however, the watch or clock is no longer relevant; our reality has morphed the distortion of time and memories become obfuscated. <source>
" i’d go to the end of world for her, or time”.
Your résumé is already pretty strong. Do you consider yourself an SNL legend, revolutionary, or luminary?
No. Never. Never say that. What am I, an asshole? [Laughs.] I only can look at it through my own perspective, which was, “Holy shit! I worked at SNL and it didn’t go terribly.” When you work there, you’re in the shadow of literally everyone. It’s also impossible to be cocky or even confident about being a cast member there because you know that the show’s fan base is so wide and that, even if you’re someone’s favorite on the show, someone else watching hates you. It’s like a sports franchise: Everyone’s got their pick and everyone thinks they know who the weak link is and what should be done differently, and that’s what makes the show fun. (x)
I love my skin!
