  Quail Hunting- Art ?
I hear some of my few readers screaming and protesting... Man, how can you kill those beautiful animals ? Stop that ! Yes, you are right. Killing animals should be no sport. But I am a sports fisher too, and a Brown Trout [version1 version 2] is also one of the most beautiful animals in the world, see this painting by Courbet for example. Hunting made humans survive, remember how our ancestors killed mammoths cutting their Achilles heels ? How was your last burger by the way ?
There are lots of pro's and contra's of course on hunting and I am a German in the Caucasus, who active supports wildlife and nature. If you think, still, weird man, thats a sin, than it is. But did you ever tasted a grilled quail ? Thats delicious. Thats the finest meal I can imagine. There is caviar too and trout, but a Georgian quail, thats divine. But is hunting art ?

Sport or crime ?

This quail was just minor hurt, it flew away after some minutes. Excuse me for my black, black fingernails.

Only on the first "Shampuri" are quails, on the other simple shashlyk from pig, also very tasty.

  Cool Young German Artists my Guests in Tbilisi
we had a little party yesterday night with Eno Henze, Dennis, Journalist Simon Ostrovsky from AFP Office Baku and his Girlfriend Dshiga from Elista, Kalmykia. Those guys are pretty successful in Germany, studied at the progressive Hochschule für Gestaltung Karlsruhe. They came here to Georgia by an old Mercedes Benz and sold it suddenly at the Bazar yesterday. They are exited about the Caucasus Area, I got some news from the German Artscene...

  Artists and Disasters f.e. Carel Fabritius

Carel Fabritius (1622-1654) was one of the most talented pupils of Rembrandt: He died short after his marriage after the Delft Explosion in 1654, what was a disaster for art, the artist and for Delft.

Egbert van der Poel, The Delft Explosion. Another image here

How many artists died in WWW1 and WWW2 ? How many got killed by Stalin ? By Hitler ? By all those other dictators ? Not by their own hand, or by accident !

Long live art, and long live the artists. As Picasso said, that Artist does not aging, while painting.
But the task of an artist is to make art, not howling..., maybe ? Dont artists have a heart ? Maybe I am an example. I am cold, it does not touch me. Maybe that is very wrong. But what do you think ?

Who of us cared on those other disasters last year ? Sudan ? Chechnya ? Afghanistan ? The ..... Does the Party Society get a break ? In the end ?

  Is a Machine a sort of Art ? Sure KAMAZ !
Thats allways I drive a car on my mind. Yes engineers are true artists, often better than most of the latter. So even this slogan of the KAMAZ plant is artistic, but came from necessity and demands: No Roads? No Problem! KAMAZ
The coolest truck, and my secret wish is to get one. Here in Georgia, they go with the heaviest loads on roads, over passes of 3000 m, where is it difficult for a Toyota Landcruiser to come. That is KAMAZ. A used one I could buy here for USD 4000-5000, but look at KAMAZ Website for the newest models:
Paris- Dakar- here too, KAMAZ a regular winner of the 2005, 2004, 2003, 2002 and 2000 Truck Races Link


KAMAZ - 43114 (6x6)

Like that truck ?
