Dali, this time, though I believe I voted against him in the past.

Dali, despite the effects of over-exposure.

Caravaggio

Nichim: yeah, I actually held him back a bit because he was getting overexposed by all the tiebreaking.

I'm going to ignore that first obnoxious Caravaggio, and vote Caravaggio.

A vote by mail for Caravaggio.

Candida said...

I'm really glad Dali existed, but Caravaggio's facial expressions stun me every time I look at them. Caravaggio, per piacere.

Zowie! It's a real slugfest, but when you only count one Caravaggio vote for Candida and one Dali vote for Dali enthusiast pfly, it's Caravaggio by 8 votes to 6. Caravaggio's going to the semis! Caravaggio's going to the semis!
