Mini-Rorschach Test

Do you know the Rorschach test, that test used by psychologists to determine how your mind works by showing you abstract inkblots?

Mosey, posted a picture-post yesterday that is supposed to be the head of a T-Rex.

I am working on visualizing the T-Rex, but what I really see is a dog smoking a pipe and dancing. At first I thought he was dancing ballet, but today, I see that he is clearly dancing flamenco.

Go look and tell me what you see...

It's a dancing dog isn't it? Don't you see the dramatic flair of the arm over his head, his eyes closed in concentration...?

Thinking of Flamenco reminded me of Joaquin Cortes, a widely-acclaimed Flamenco dancer from Spain, who I first saw in a Pedro Almodovar movie (Is it All About My Mother?)

If you have never seen him, the first few minutes of this video capture him pretty well.




He is obviously showcasing his chest...

Happy Sunday!

He takes his flamenco seriously, ol' Joaquin.

(I've tried to help you out a bit with the t-rex - let me know if it helps....) ;)

oh no! you've just made me terribly nervous. i completely forgot about these things, but i have an interview tomorrow and in Chile they are obsessed with all these tests into your inner psyche and such. im going to quick do some studying up on how to correctly pick my color swabs and how to draw the girl caught in the rain.

What a T-Rex dancing the flamenco? Little bit of compromise here? ;)

Haha, I love this exchange between the two of you. After the helpful editing, I saw the T Rex. Beforehand, more like a dodo bird.

Definitely a dog. A poodle with a laptop.
