'Still Life: An Allegory of the Vanities of Human Life' Harmen Steenwyck c. 1640 [Formatted for HD PS3 background]
A good blog takes commitment, dedication and work. Recently I purchased a PS3 (almost precisely one month before a price-drop) which has begun to vie for my affections. I changed the background image of my PS3s theme to Harmen Steenwijck's 1640 'Vanitas' painting (above) in order to help remind me of the fleeting nature of the moment and that I am potentially wasting my time on trifles before the inevitability of the void. To date this strategy has been remarkably ineffective.
