He's probably suffering a flashback from the Emu Wars.

Gotta say, this crop of the painting makes it lose some of its magic.

A brilliant part of the original painting is the two people walking away from the viewer in the background. They either are unaware or choose to ignore the person in despair, which adds a whole 'nother layer of helplessness.

iirc, the scream isn't supposed to be coming from the figure in the picture, the scream is from nature, the swirling chaotic vibrant surroundings and the figure (Munch) is experiencing the scream and not themselves screaming. At the same time, see it how you want, all art is polysemic.

Man I failed a poetry assignment in high school because I "interpreted it wrong." Thank you for your comment, I've been preaching that for years.

No worries, I totally understand, they really need to move away from teaching this way. Meaning is created through the act of observation and context, its not inherent in anything despite what people say the artist 'intended', that meaning only applies to them and the perception of their own creation, once it's out into the world they have no control over its meaning.

I don’t know that this is so much is scream as it is they were just told how much it was going to cost for them to repair a timing chain on a 2011 Volvo after only owning the vehicle for a few months even though they thought they were buying a thoroughly serviced car.

What a random thing for me to be able to relate to. Had a similar thing happen not 6 months ago on my Volvo. The a/c compressor belt broke, and it flew up into my timing belt. I was lucky to not have any bent valves, and replaced the accessory belts myself. But the timing belt cost nearly 2 grand

I joke that all Volvo parts are hand made in Sweden... in the same factories that used to manufacture tanks. See... during the war, all the men went off and served, so the women went into the factories. Once the war ended, they didn't need tanks, and the women enjoyed working... so they switched to Volvo parts. Those same women have been working in the factories ever since... and they're getting older, and there aren't as many as there used to be. So now there's a very small workforce of slow moving factory workers making Volvo parts... hence why they cost so much.

EDIT: This story relies on my version of what Sweden was doing during the War, and I won't change my story regardless of what they were actually doing because the story won't work anymore.

Apparently the guy isn’t screaming, but blocking his ears because of someone screaming.

I both really want to know, and desperately don't want to know, the full story behind this.
