"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Tom Ford auctioned off his Warhol.
An Andy Warhol work (shown) sold by designer Tom Ford has fetched more than $32 million (£21.5 million) at Sotheby's. [...] The other star lot was an untitled 1961 Mark Rothko, which sold for $31.44 million (£21.17 million) including commission, beating the $25 million (£16.8 million) high estimate. - Source
I'm not a big fan of Warhol, although I have a socio-anthropological interest in him, his work, and his cult. I do like Rothko however. Amazing what art sells for these days, more amazing, how much money some people have.
How absolutely nothing everything is...
