    Yeah I heard of this too! Its surprising how these discoveries are made so many years after WWII - like when the FBI rediscovered the large collection of art looted by German art dealer Gurlitt a few years ago.

    It must be really cool to find art that have been stolen or lost for so many years
    Great art captures a time, a place and an emotion.

    I'm at my most serious when I'm joking

    Reading Book 5 of the 'lightbringer' series by Brent Weeks.

    Also just a handful of pages into 'Lincoln and the Bardo', by George Saunders. I think it'll prove to be very...different.

    Have you ever read "Pastoralia"? I was thinking of getting "Civil War Land in Bad Decline" last week since i enjoyed "Pastoralia" so much.

    I have not heard of it. This is my first read by Saunders.

    I just liked the fantastical, satirical exaggeration of the stories in the collection. There was a short story about a theme park where people would live like cavemen, for instance. I don't just mean dress up like cavemen, I mean, wear prosthetics and actually live in caves, with the expectation that they behave in a period appropriate way at all times. And there was another land in the theme park with a wise old hermit who got laid off.

    Well, I remember talking to someone about a painting hanging in an old Jesuit building in Dublin once and wondering about its age and value, turned out it was a valuable lost Rembrandt or something and it was just sitting in a dusty hallway! No one knew anything about it but my drawing attention to it had prompted someone to get it evaluated, I think they sold it for fund raising after that.

    I read that, I liked some of the premises for a bit but then I thought it dragged in for the remainder of the book.

    That whole theme park and the existences people lived in this bizarre subsistence labour force was madness.

    The misconception(/misunderstanding?)
    psychotherapie

    A book, that criticizes psychotherapy. This is exactly what I was looking for. Now I can make my teachers mad, I am ready to fight.
