Le Reve and Me

Le Reve and Me is a blog dedicated to one man's experience with a poster of Picasso's Le Reve, the original of which was sold at Christie's and subsequently (and accidentally) damaged by owner Steve Wynn. [another excellent Picasso post from the archives!]

OK, I read the "damaged" link, and I wanted to puke. What elitist tripe. Blah. There is so much crap in the world, why do I have to accidentally come across even more?

You mean you opened MetaFilter accidentally? Clicked on this link accidentally?

Eew! She's got Picasso's nasty old penis on her face!

And don't hate on poor Nora Ephron, eekacat. She's just another working stiff, like you and me. Otherwise, how else would she and her partner, the impoverished artist Nicholas Pileggi (who wrote Casino, Goodfellas, etc.) manage to qualify for a rent-controlled apartment in the Apthorp?

Aren't all but a couple of postings on that blog cut and pasted from other places?

Let me get this straight -- a guy started a blog to talk about a Picasso poster he bought? What was the point of doing that?
