According to Nora Ephron, Steve Wynn punched a hole Picasso’s painting, Le Rêve, shortly after selling it for $139 Million. Yes, it was an accident, but it put the kibosh on what would have been the most expensive painting sale in history.

Wynn stepped away from the painting, and there, smack in the middle of Marie-Therese Walter’s plump and allegedly-erotic forearm, was a black hole the size of a silver dollar – or, to be more exactly, the size of the tip of Steve Wynn’s elbow — with two three-inch long rips coming off it in either direction. Steve Wynn has retinitis pigmentosa, an eye disease that damages peripheral vision, but he could see quite clearly what had happened.

“Oh shit,” he said. “Look what I’ve done.”

The rest of us were speechless.

It’s quite a story, especially to hear what Wynn’s biggest concern was… Check it out.

Justin and I make a rare in-studio appearance on The David Lawrence Show. We talk about Justin’s new gig at Adobe, his presentations this week at the “Flash In The Can” conference in Hollywood. We also talk about some current news items, such as the rumored purchase of YouTube by Google and some of the cool new television shows that have started (or returned) this television season.

You can download the audio of the show at this link, only $0.25 through BitPass.

I also stuck around to do the podcast, which can be downloaded for free at David Lawrence Unplugged and on iTunes (just search for David Lawrence in the podcast section).
