Understanding art for geeks

The Scream by Edvard Munch = :O
Paul, the wine guy, presents his Flickr set Understanding art for geeks. My first impression was a big shock, and I asked to my buttons: what the hell? After three of four images, my artsy side went to walk and my geek side started laughing of the hilarious (explantions) combinations. Paul explains classic paintings using (classic) expressions and commands of geek knowledge. He chose a classic Napoleon by Jacques-Louis David for All Your base are belong to us, a Gerard Dou painting for RTFM, Second Life explaining Hieronymus Bosch’s “The Garden of Earthly Delights“, and there it goes.
