"one could appreciate the fine line walked by beefarini, as he made
request after request to the wealthy for access to the paintings he
discussed in the guardsman mythos text, whereas those benefactors were
obviously nervous at what secrets beefarini might uncover.
Cumulatively, it was tendency towards excesses, a grotesque appetite
of the muse for more and more: a litany of stimulation, a stream as it
were, of things which may have actually seemed quasi-erotic to the
otherworldly personality of the muse. Having seen the old works, now
publicly owned, i doubt not the veracity of beefarini's work."
-skinner pilgrim, the guardsman then and now.
