I recently wrote a post about the American TV show Lost and in it I wrote something approximating the following sentence…
"The show is beginning to look like something created by the mind one of my least favorite famous artists, Salvador Dali. I linked the name Salvador Dali to one of his most famous paintings, which is called something to the effect of "Melting Clocks."
So yesterday, I notice all sorts of search traffic coming my way. Every few minutes there is a hit on my page. Since I know so little about the internet, I emailed the folks at TypePad to ask what was going on. Was I being spammed? What did it all mean?
Today, Tyepad replied: Unfortunately, the image you are using is the #1 result for a Google search on Salvador Dali.
I think this is hilarious. I hate Dali! And yet, hundreds of people have come my way (not that any of them have stayed, mind you) due to that link.
So, since it is Tuesday and I need to revisit my New Year’s resolution AND I want to neutralize the effect of Dali’s surrealist karmic revenge, I give you the Salvador Dali Museum.
Enjoy it if you can.
