    The flute must have a Freudian meaning for him.

    @rmaxell(from yesterday, since it didn’t want to load beyond comment #15, at least not for me until just now — if you already read it there, I apologize for the repeat; it’s been deleted there):

    Here’s a search tip, that no doubt would have helped you yesterday.

    Unlike the strip, where everything is contained in an image, the title, artist’s name, etc., are all text items in the blog entry, and as such, can be searched for. So when I search for one of these paintings, the first thing I Google is something unique about the strip followed by

    site:thatispriceless.blogspot.com

    confining the search to the blog. For example, yesterday I Googled

    paninis site:thatispriceless.blogspot.com

    which immediately gave me the blog entry.

    Once there, get the image address. If you don’t know how to do that, Ctrl-click (click while holding down the Ctrl key) on the image, or, if that doesn’t work, right-click on the image if you have that kind of mouse. That should show a drop-down menu, which should have Copy Image AddressURL (or similar words). Choose that.

    Paste that into the Google search box. But before searching, that needs to be edited.

    That is the filename Mr. Melcher has chosen for the image. Generally, it consists of his title in lower-case (spaces replaced by +‘s), followed by the (almost always Wikipedia) filename.

    Starting with the http at the beginning, delete everything through the title (and, if there, any number followed by px-), and search for what’s left.

    It doesn’t always work; in the case of yesterday’s elsewhere link, the filename ends with a “+”, and I had to actually search for the painting, back when I first posted a comment there. But, in over a year of doing this, it has worked well over 95% of the time.

    For yesterday’s strip, what remained was:

    Jan_de_Bray_001.jpg

    which immediately told me it wasn’t a Jan van Eyck painting (quite often the artist’s name is part of the filename).

    Usually, one of the first 10 search results will point you to the painting, the whole process probably taking you less time than it took to read this; I’m sure less time than it took me to write it.

    And I also appreciate your using the original icon of “Johnny Depp” since it has been replaced as the avatar for the strip. It was my favorite!
