I love screen-used movie artifacts. If something was used in a film, handled by someone famous and respectable, and played a role critical to entertaining millions of people, then it holds tremendous value to me. I feel the same way about other artifacts too, it’s just that fewer artifacts from film and television are preserved and displayed in public, so it’s very special when entire exhibitions are curated around such items.

Desert X is an art festival held every two years in the Coachella Valley in Southern California. It is not so much a cluster of art installations in the same way that, for example, The Gertrude Street Projection Festival is (that festival confines its installations to a couple of city blocks in Fitzroy), but instead site specific installations are scattered in disparate areas throughout the valley, so it can be more challenging, by design, to see them all. You should be prepared to drive, and wear cool breathable clothing and bring water.

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.

This is a stub that is part of my ongoing efforts to digitize old family slides. I recently found this group of nine photos of Disneyland taken back in 1963.

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.
