Did you check out the photo of Proust and the Young Girls wearing veils? Great texture and it evokes an era but it is a bit freaky. Gotta love it.

Yes, they're all rather odd but compelling. The similar slide shows on Hitchcock and Kafka are equally strange. It's so...Kafkaesque. Who would have thought of including a shot of Proust taking his car to a filling station? What next? Einstein buying groceries? Plato doing his laundry? Oh, those crazy French!

Wasn't this the dude who wrote "A la Recheche de Temps Perdu", that huge long book that is now considered a classic of Western Civ?

As Marcel would have said himself, "Oui, je suis le dude."
