Fantasy goggles and what they make us see

This is being headlined in various places as ‘Woman falls into Picasso painting’ rather than ‘through’ or ‘against’. ‘Into’ would mean that she suddenly found herself wandering along the beach with the saltimbanques, running away from the Guernica beasts or being shat on by that bloody dove.

Or is that just me, early in the morning?


Later I’ve pulled the piece that purported to be an anti-Glee rant – Bilerico had assured me that the site where it appeared was not a parody site, but I am persuaded now that it is, less by the piece about demon meat, than by some of the other material.

    It’s not genuine. It’s a satire site, like Betty Bowers.

    Oh what a pity it isn’t real. (There’s an article a bit further down the page about meat infected with demons that goes way over the believability line.)

    Of course what happened to this woman who fell into the painting has, to the best of my knowledge, not been reported, or how she feels, or anything. To me this suggests she is currently unavailable for comment – lost as she is in that strange and terrible dream world of Elsewhere.
