Like a King!

via Spanish newspaper La Vanguardia (sorry, I searched for an English source but couldn’t find any so far), a photo of the tomb that Silvio Berlusconi commissioned and had built. It was designed by artist Pietro Cascella and consists of 100 tons of marble. Here’s the kick: he told the artist he wanted something inspired in Egyptian Pharaohs and to make sure that the tomb could accommodate 32 of his closest friends. One of the friends who had a place assigned by Berlusconi declined the honor and considered it creepy.

For the past decade and a half I have been making all my content available for free (and never behind a paywall) as an ongoing practice of ephemeral publishing. This site is no exception. If you wish to help offset my labor costs, you can donate on Paypal or you can subscribe to Patreon where I will not be putting my posts behind a lock but you'd be helping me continue making this work available for everyone. Thank you.  Follow me on Twitter for new post updates.
