something pretty and interesting:

i found this website with oil paintings--portraits of philosophers that some of us really like. i actually found it by googling for a picture from the movie Zorba the Greek, with anthony quinn, and subsequently found out that the author, nikos kazantzakis, of the original novel Zorba the Greek, that i started reading yesterday, is actually considered a philosopher. i'm only a chapter in but i kinda knew that already by the way he writes and what about....everyone should read that book. shimer would love it.
