The Fine Art of Procrastination

Just a place to stash pretty stuff and ramble about what's neat. And werewolves, apparently.

September 12, 1940: The Lascaux cave paintings are discovered.

The discoverers of the celebrated Paleolithic cave paintings were four teenagers, who had stumbled upon the site while searching for their lost dog. Located in southwestern France, the Lascaux cave system was first studied by and introduced to the public by archaeologist-priest Henri Breuil. It was opened to the public in 1948, but it closed once more in 1963 in order to help preserve the paintings.

Nearly 2,000 illustrations, of animals (stags, bison, cattle), humans, and other, more abstract designs, can be found in the Lascaux caves; these illustrations are some of the oldest examples of any sort of high-quality, complex art, estimated to be anywhere from 13,000 to 25,000 years old. These paintings are divided into several sections, including a “Great Hall of the Bulls”, which contains some of the cave’s most famous pieces - black aurochs, one of them measuring over seventeen feet across. Other sections include a “Chamber of Felines”, and “the Shaft of the Dead Man”. The purpose of these paintings remains obscure - perhaps the caves were regarded as sacred places, where special rites were performed, or maybe our prehistoric ancestors really, really liked painting animals.

Leverage commentary from ‘The Last Dam Job’:

Dean Devlin: Now, a little tidbit for fans out there – the art that you’re seeing on the wall are actually the tiles from the very original Stargate: the Movie, which I still have.
[exclamations from the others]
DD: It was actually – the show had wrapped, and I was getting in my car to drive to the airport, and I noticed that someone had dismantled the Stargate and thrown it in a big giant dumpster and I went “No, no, no, no!” and I dove into the dumpster, pulled out all these tiles, boxed them up, and…
John Rogers: I’ll tell you what – the Stargate – I wish you hadn’t [dismantled it], because there is a lost shot, one we could not do. When we bring the team back together at the beginning of Season 2 we had little moments of what everybody said what they did during the break, and Eliot’s was going to be “What did you do?” and we were going to flash to the Stargate with him in the gear going “All right, but this is the last time!” And then flash back and him going “No.” But the Stargate was broken, it was thrown away!

OH MY GOD

HAHAHAHAHAH

You guys are the best and also the worst. <3

FTR they were also going to have a flash to him covered in alien goo after that YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN YOU MIGHT HAVE TO FIGHT AN ALIEN line in the close encounters job but they didn’t have budget/time
