Day 19: Most Epic Scene Ever
The part in The World God Only Knows where is playing video games like a god. Seriously, check it out.
“I just wondered, between you and me, in a hundred words, where do you think Van Gogh rates in the history of art?”
historical who — vincent van gogh as written by richard curtis
To me, Van Gogh is the finest painter of them all. Certainly the most popular, great painter of all time. The most beloved, his command of colour most magnificent. He transformed the pain of his tormented life into ecstatic beauty. Pain is easy to portray, but to use your passion and pain to portray the ecstasy and joy and magnificence of our world, no one had ever done it before. Perhaps no one ever will again. To my mind, that strange, wild man who roamed the fields of Provence was not only the world’s greatest artist, but also one of the greatest men who ever lived.

5x10 Vincent and the Doctor
“The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don’t always soften the bad things, but vice-versa, the bad things don’t necessarily spoil the good things and make them unimportant.”
I don’t know how you see that, but I think Vincent and the Doctor would’ve been fabulous as a couple.
