mozart_mug_shot

This picture is a facial composite of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, circa 1777, generated around 1991 (no later than 1992) by the Bundeskriminalamt Wiesbaden—the Federal Criminal Police Office of Wiesbaden, Germany—from four portraits that appeared during Mozart’s lifetime. The details on how or why they did this are scarce, unfortunately. In 1777 Mozart was twenty-one years old.

Who do you think he looks like—Gene Wilder? Tim Roth? Tom Hulce? Ladies (and gents), would you give this man your phone number?

There’s actually a second picture like this out there. An Alabama resident named Christine Pursell took this snapshot while on vacation in Mitteleuropa a few weeks ago. Pursell notes that it dates from 1993, although it says “Copyright 2002” on the picture itself.

Mozart

What do you think? Nicolas Cage? Ted Bundy?

Everyone seems to agree that this fellow doesn’t particularly resemble the paintings that have survived of Mozart, but it’s still fun to think about.

P.S. from me:  Well………..

He looks really scary, doesn’t he? If I knew him in person, most likely I would try to avoid him, seriously.

Funniest gig ever

The topic of this fabulous gig was was quite common – annual anniversary at St.Paul’s College near of Sydney University.  But who can guess that this is going to be gig to remember – I never had so much fun!

One of the guests had some kind of relation to the Agricultural Department of Something-Something, so he managed to bring  (ttttrrra-ta-ta, attention!)  4 kittens, 4 chickens, 4 little duckies, 4 bunnies and 4 little cute goats, just to please and entertain the guests (some of them were with their kids), and, you know, whether you’re early 20th or late 50th – you still cant resist to give a cuddles here and there if you see these cuties!
