Local Thoughts: Heritage Square Needs Work

Local Thoughts: Heritage Square Needs Work

I should have titled my trip to Heritage Square as another live stream fail (similarly to Hearst Castle), but there was something about Heritage Square that offset my live stream errors and evened everything out: It wasn’t a very good museum.

Past Thoughts: The 14th Factory

Located just east of Dodger Stadium on Avenue 19 in an abandoned industrial bakery, The 14th Factory was an amazing temporary large scale art exhibition that anyone who couldn’t score tickets to the Broad in time for their first trip to LA could go to and still find suitable locations to snap selfies for their tinder profiles which they in turn utilized to boost their follower counts on instagram. This is too bad because it was utterly brilliant and worthy of so much more than social media exploitation.

The Anza Borrego Serpent Sculpture

I had no idea Anza Borrego had a random iron serpent sculpture out in the desert before instagram, which is an embarrassing thing to admit, but I also have this thing where if I see a cool thing or event on social media, I go see it, and that’s how I ended up here.

Travel Thoughts – New Orleans – A Testament to Building with Wood, Lead, and Tar

God I loved New Orleans, and I can’t put into words why. Okay, blogs are about words, so I should probably try. In December of 2017, a travel buddy & I embarked upon what may become an annual excursion: Experiencing New Orleans at the best possible time: Not Mardi Gras.

Travel Thoughts – Hearst Castle Live Stream Fail

Well, I attempted to live stream from Hearst Castle in San Simeon, and I failed epically at it, but did manage to record this backup. I was all set. I had all the cables (and then some) a man might ever need in his life. I had a massive external battery pack that could literally power everything for days. I had tested my RX0 and made sure it would send video to my live streaming box properly. Even with all this proper prior planning to prevent problems, none of it mattered. It still didn’t work at all. I shall explain.
