Proper Introduction

Greatest Gift Of All

The greatest gift that you can ever give to anyone, and it is free, is a proper introduction. A proper introduction is the most important thing that you can offer anyone, because it gives the gift of safety. When you offer to introduce someone that you personally know to a person that your friend does not know, but that you know, is offering both your friend, and the person that you are introducing him to confidence, and safety. For your friend is relying upon your good name, and your steadfastness to expose him to a stranger, because this is sound.

It is never wise to meet a stranger on your own and strike up a conversation, for that can lead to peril. That is why you have so many crimes committed today, because people go to bars, and nightclubs to meet people that they do not know, and end up in trouble. God forbid even worse, hooking up online with Internet dating services, this is danger at all levels, because you have not been introduced.

Could there be anything safer? No. A proper introduction is the best policy above all, because it gives safety, and it is free.

Christian Van Horn

Bass-Baritone

Christian Van Horn is a leading Base-baritone opera singer, because he is an alumni of the Ryan Center for the Performing Arts, at Lyric Opera of Chicago. Since his graduation from the Ryan Center he has taken on an international schedule, because his voice is in demand.

Pen & Ink Drawing Of Christian Van Horn #460Z

Above is my pen & ink drawing of Christian Van Horn, because I heard him sing last night at Lyric Opera of Chicago and wanted to remember him. He sang the part of Count Walter in Verdi’s Luisa Miller. I like this drawing because it shows him with a smile. I drew this image of him, because the photo was on Google. There are many images of Christian on the Internet, because he is now a famous opera singer across the United States, and abroad.

Luisa Miller By Verdi

This evening I has the pleasure to attend a performance of Luisa Miller by Verdi, because I am a Lyric Opera of Chicago subscriber. As always, Lyric Opera delivers the highest quality opera in spades, because they are a world class opera company. The sets for tonight’s product were wonderful. The backdrop was a large canvas of a mountain landscape with lots of greenery, because it was near the Alps. In the stage setting was a very large canvas that was moved around as the scene changed. The painting looked like a Barbizon School landscape by either Corot, or Daubigny.

Christian Van Horn

Bass-Baritone Christina Van Horn, an alumni of the Ryan Center for the Performing Arts, at Lyric Opera of Chicago did an outstanding job as the Count Walter. All the members of the cast were wonderful, because they spent a lot of time practicing their outstanding gifts. Offering to everyone here in Chicago the very best in Verdi, and opera, because they know how to deliver.

Thank you Lyric Opera of Chicago!

Intermission

There was one intermission that lasted for 30 minutes, because then the bell chimed for the curtain to rise. All in all it was an outstanding performance. Thank you lyric Opera, because you offer the best opera. The Civic Opera house was crowed, because it is the home of Lyric Opera, and everyone runs to a winner.

Male Beauty #446Z, with pen & ink, and pencil portraits, by artist Stephen F. Condren, SAIC, BFA, of Condren Galleries. From the fish in the sea, to the birds in the air, it is Nature’s decree that the male is most fair.

Male Beauty

From The Fish In The Sea, To The Birds In The Air, It Is Nature’s Decree That The Male Is Most Fair

If you are a man, and you want to make your straight buddy uncomfortable in a hurry, just tell him that “The guy who just walked in is really cute”, and you will see him squirm! Why? Because deep inside, your buddy knows it, and does not want to let the cat out of the bag. This fact is true of all men, in all cultures, and of all races, because men are far more beautiful than women. More importantly, the male gender is the fair gender, not the female.

Physiologic Architecture

The male, unlike the female possesses a magnificent architecture, because his muscles, skeleton, and physique sculpt a structurally sound design. Whereas the female has a wobbly form, accented with saggy tits, and flabby hips, that offers little. This is because to have the female the equal in beautify with the male would cause a visual, and social conflict, because the male is the dominant gender of the species by the rule of Nature. It is the male that mounts, and penetrates the female, because the male passes on the seed of life.

Brainwashing

In Western Culture, and many others, we have been brainwashed, swindled if you will, to believe a lie. For it is the rule of Nature that the male gender in all species is the beautiful, and fair specimen. Men of society uphold the female as the fair sex, because they desire them for sexual satisfaction. Thus to uphold another man as beautiful creates a conflict in their mind, that is wrong, because the ploy of upholding of female beauty is to focus on sexual intercourse so as to procreate. Masking the truth, and living the lie of female beauty is a tawdry swindle, that cheapens the glory of Nature’s greatest creation, which is of course, the human male.

Schools Of Sperm

However, there is no need to worry, because men are meant to bond by the rule of Nature. This is why men like sports, and huddles, because they are team like the school of sperms swimming to the egg. Male bonding stems from our primordial sperm team, and poses no threat to male sexual encounters. Therefore, the next time that your buddy tells you that the guy that just walked in is cute, agree with him! Because he is offering you respect, and friendship which is the greatest treasure of all.

Pen & Ink Drawing Of Male Beauty #446Z

Above, and below are my drawings of beautiful men, the glory of Nature, for all men, and women to behold and enjoy. There is no need for men to be afraid to enjoy the image of male beauty, because it only enhances their standing. It is far better to be beautiful than ugly, because we all strive for beauty.

Sex Is Not Beautiful, Men Are

Male Beauty

Sex is not beautiful in anyway whatsoever, because it is a bodily function. People do not want to hear that, because it is true. Like eating, urinating, and defecating, these things should be done in private. Yes, eating is a bodily function, and should be done in private, because it is crude. Not all things that we do should be seen publicly, like brushing your teeth. There is modesty and discretion in all good mannered people, and we do not want to stoop down to crudeness.

Pencil Drawing Of Sex Is Not Beautiful #445Z

Above, and below are drawings of beautiful men, in all the glory that God has created them to me, because we are part of nature. As people we are creatures of beauty, and should be upheld as such. For there is nothing in all creation than the human body. However, the act of sex is not a creation, but an activity, thus not to be beheld. Sex is not meant to be seen or beheld, but rather to enjoyed individually.

Sir Robert Loescher

Professor Of Art History, School Of The Art Institute Of Chicago

Sir Robert Loescher was the Professor of Art History at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, because of his outstanding scholarship, and profound learning. I was fortunate to be able to take a number of his courses, because there filled up quickly, due to demand.

Pen & Ink Drawing Of Sir Robert Loescher #444Z

Above is a pen & ink drawing that I have done of Sir Robert, because I want to always remember him. Of the many things that I can say, that would fill books, I would like to make reference to his lecture on Cupid Chastised, by Bartolomeo Manfredi.

Cupid Chastised

In one of the many fine and outstanding tours that Sir Robert gave to we students in the galleries of the Art Institute of Chicago, on one occasion we stopped in front of the Old Masters. This gallery was at that time located at the font and center of the Michigan Avenue building, and the Assumption of the Virgin was dead center. To the immediate right of the Assumption was Cupid Chastised. Sir Robert had us gather around him and the painting and then asked us to comment on it.

The Lecture

As young students, that did not know any better, so we gave answers that seemed solid and sensible for Baroque Art, with mythological themes. However, when we finished, he very gently and with stealth opened the conversation to the underlying meaning of the painting. The veneer of the painting was about Roman mythology. However, the substance of the work was about Homoerotic Sadomasochistic Gay Art. As Sir Robert talked, it all became so clear, and we were amazed. At the bottom of this article is a link to my article about this famous painting.

Faith And Deception

Sweet Mirage

The Church set up an image of a figure like Cardinal Newman, and hold him up for us as mode, because he is a beacon of vision. That is all fine and good but it is what I call the Sweet Mirage, ever so soft, and a gentle swindle. This is nothing but a speck in the vast geodesic prism of human perspective. Faith is based upon fact, not fables, because faith relies on a rational account of habits, and practices. There is no such thing as blind faith, only blind stupidity.

Pen & Ink Drawing Of Faith And Deception #450Z

Above is my pen & ink drawing of Jesus with His followers, because this is the false image given to us about Jesus. With all love and kindness the priests, and nuns, raised us as children about the Catholic Church, because they were earnest. This is the sad commentary, because they were kind, and well intended, but just did not know any better.

Sweet Swindle

Smooth Deception

If there is anything that is deplorable, it is being kindly swindled, because it takes you off guard. Often times it is easy to spot a swindler, like a used car salesman trying to sell you his good, because he wants your commission fee. However, we all know that kind of deception, because it is obvious. However, the kind of fraudulent sweet swindle that take money from the elderly is evil, because these people are weak, and helpless.

Pencil Drawing Of Smooth Deception #448Z

Above is my pencil drawing of Nosferatu, who is going to swindle his victim of his very life, because he is going to drink his blood. When your very life is at stake, it pays to be very careful, because you will lose your life. The bottom lines is to be cautious and not listen to anyone. Rather, demand for the person to support his or her statements with facts, because this will expose them.
