The Roblog

Musings, insights and information from your friends at Ghost of the Robot.
Took Brittney and Sullivan to the Getty Art Museum. It’s free, if you have someone drop you off at the cool tram. The ride up the mountain is grand and the grounds of the museum remind me of what I wanted Heaven to look like when I was a kid. Here Sullivan begins to grok a painting by Titian showing the Goddess Venus attempting to seduce her God lover Adonis to keep him from going hunting. He will not be swayed and leaves, only to be killed by a wild boar. As the wise Hulk once said, ‘Puny God.’ Venus is hot!
