"I still haven't found what I'm looking for." — Bono

"In fact Surrealism found what it had been looking for
from the first in the 1920 collages [by Max Ernst],
which introduced an entirely original scheme of
visual structure…."

Some backstory— Outsider Art, and an obituary for Günther Förg 
in tonight's online New York Times

"Günther Förg, a German painter, sculptor and
photographer whose work exemplified, toyed with,
tweaked and commented on— sometimes all at
once— the broad artistic movement known as
modernism, died at his home in Freiburg, Germany,
on Dec. 5, his 61st birthday." 

The Log24 posts of that date, Dec. 5, are not without relevance.

Legendary Magician John Calvert Dies at 102

The Hollywood Reporter , 8:36 PM PDT 9/27/2013
 by Mike Barnes 

" 'Out in Hollywood many years ago, Danny Kaye was
in my show and came out and impersonated Hitler,'
Calvert said in a 1998 interview. 'Then the Marines
would come out and grab him and put him in the buzz saw
and we’d cut his head off, put his head in a sausage grinder,
and out came German wieners!' "

See MAX in the posts of September 9th.

"Calvert died Friday [Sept. 27] in Lancaster, Calif., according to
The International Brotherhood of Magicians."
