Marsden Hartley - Storm Clouds, Maine - 1906

This one kind of speaks for itself, non?

Notice how that big cloud to the left has eyes, suggesting perhaps that the storm has a personal axe to grind. Me likey!

Marsden Hartley is one of the more famous folks to come out of my home town, Lewiston, Maine. I've heard it said that not only was he born there, but also grew up on the same street as I did.

Perhaps another illustration of why local movie theaters suck, a movie that was recently made about his life, "Cleophas and His Own," will only be shown ONCE in the Boston area. Not just once a day for a run of a couple of weeks, but ONE showing, ONE night. Which will, again, make it impossible for a lot of people who want to see this movie to actually see it.

Um, not to point out the incredibly obvious, but you have heard of these things called "DVDs," right?

And then you don't have to put up with the people that sit next to you in the theater, talking on cell phones about their baby daddy. Not that it sounds likely that you'd get a whole lot of those at this movie, but you never know, nowadays.

You are correct, Chubby Birdy. But...well, there are just some fillums that you want to see in a theater. Some of the cinematography in this one, I fear, won't look so spectacular on my 27 inch screen.
