William Shakespeare and The Shiny Beast of Thought

December 30, 2012


Ah, the entanglement of nature and the mind… One of these days we’ll get the leak in the roof fixed. In the meantime we’ll just have to marvel at the mutating patterns of damp and mould on our ceiling and this interesting juxtaposition of the left-facing profile of William Shakespeare (with a touch of the Jimmy Hills) with the orangey, rightward-leaping, buck-headed form which looks like it might have jumped out of a Don Van Vliet (Captain Beefheart) painting, like, say The Shiny Beast of Thought (1987)…
