Franz Radziwill, painter of orbs

Apparently what enabled him to see the Vitons was painting his arm with iodine while experimenting with a combination of mescal and methylene.
More orbs here and here. Also, and furthermore, someone's uploaded the text of Sinister Barrier.

...pleasant little rocks, but the shadows (hvnly spheres, dog, house, etc.) have me "thinking" ... OK, I'm done...

v. nice art - I would hang it (I know what I like)

[wv "hoonhysa" don't know what it means, but I'm tempted to use it in casual conversation]

Did the Messerschmidt actually crack the sky or did it just fly through the crack?

Why is that man's donkey tiny?

If the donkeys there are all tiny, why did they build the watering troughs so tall?

Why did all of Europe's WORST bricklayers and plasterers end up in the same town?

Why does the mountain have a garage door?

Considering the quality of the lawn maintenance, this place must be crawling with illegals...

See, I think that it is the orbs causing the rips in the sky etc. They have caused the outbreaks of neat lawns and the stealing of random airplanes. Mr Radziwill was just painting that which a diet of Corn Squeezings and Roto-Rooter Pipe Shield will enable one to see.

A simple trick of perspective. It's further away.

As well as orbs, Radziwill really liked painting bricks.

Actually I think the inept bricklayers and plasterers were aliens, sneaking in from the Home-Depot Dimension through the crack in the sky in search of work.

If he'd painted nice strong pillars the rest of that temple would be intact.

I am sure you recognise the mountain.

It was not there when I uploaded the image, and only appeared in it as a later arrival.
Otherwise I would have titled the post "ME 262 Prince of turbojet".

You'll be hearing from U.N.C.L.E.

The Messerschmidt might be a BF109 (G?) but it sure is not an ME-262 the lack of turbojets is a dead givaway.

The use of the ME109 rather than the ME262 makes this the obvious work of a HACK who is NOT AWARE OF ALL BLUE OYSTER CULT TRADITIONS!

I am apauled.

Franz Radziwill saw some black air and he had to paint it red. I am fascinated and, 47 cans of red spray paint and several bogus arrests and a long community service sentence later, more than a little resentful that he succeeded where I have failed so many times. The big crack that has developed is some consolation though. Ha ha!

In Mr Radziwill further paintings there are, respectively, A Junkers 87 "Stuka" and a Flying Boat.Has he no shame that he can jam planes into his pictures willy nilly- yes, willy nilly!?!?!?

I'll wager that his brushes are fashioned from the fabric produced by "sufferers" of Morgellon's, uh, syndrome.

William P. Nilly, esq. said...

Ahem. You know, young man, that both I and my son are quite measured and methodical in our approach to both allied AND axis fight planes, and their representations in modern works of art and literature.

Despite the unfortunate connotations of our names, there is nothing incoherent or even the slightest bit random in either their type selection nor their placement. I hope we have made ourselves quite clear, as the next step might include letters from our legal representatives, a very large and well known east-coast firm.

Thank you. DO carry on...

Dear Mr Nilly (if that is your real name),
old coot.
Yours sincerely

In his 1960 painting "Die Badenden" Mr Radziwill has included a Vulcan bomber (as well as the orbs) to prove he can move with the times. The male bather in the foreground is facing the wrong way so we cannot tell whether he is in fact willy nilly or not. I can't find a copy of the painting on the Intertuba so you have the choice of making tracks to the Bremen art museum, or taking my word for it.
