The Gertrude Street Projection Festival

I was at home, looking for something to do and browsing the internet like I do for cool stuff (like Der Drachenstich), when I came across Vivid Sydney. It is by all accounts, stunning.

But I had missed the dates for it, so I kept looking.

Der Drachenstich

It walks. It roars. It burps fire. It is fifty feet long and fifteen feet tall. It is a dragon, and its name, is Fanny.

Dismaland

In July of 2015, I was sitting in a hotel room in Melbourne,  Australia, watching the news, as I prepared to go out for the Gertrude Street Projection Festival, when I saw news confirming that Banksy was building Dismaland.

He collected the hell out of things from Sci-Fi, Horror, Fantasy, and action films, along with a trove of related art and literary works, and he then proceeded to create a retreat for himself in California called Bleak House in Southern California which he filled with the stuff.

Seven Magic Mountains without Instagrammers

Laugh all you want, it’s getting harder and harder to go out and take photos of places and things without being obstructed by those “doing it for the ‘gram.” To that end, I have pretty much given up on sunsets and now primarily aim for sunrises as my golden hour of choice (see also my trip to the Anza Borrego Serpent).

Remember when auto shows had amazing concept cars? I barely do.
One of society’s greatest achievements in the 21st century was coming up with an pejorative that is totally utterly completely and without question gender-ethnic neutral where you can sling it without being accused of being an “~ist.” That term is: “Basic.” And basic is the best way to describe the 2018 Los Angeles International Auto Show.
