Spring break forever


In the middle of the Nevada desert many years ago, a sculptural artist named Michael Heizer began moving around massive amounts of earth and clay.







Over fifty years later, his life's work is complete: the single largest sculptural work of art ever conceived. I have been waiting over a decade for the chance to see this masterpiece; finding out today that it was finally finished - insomuch as such a work could ever be "finished" - was akin to finding out that Jesus had risen again. I openly wept.

Never trust an artist who calls his own work a masterpiece. I'm not impressed neither by the design nor the scale. It looks like a really boring skatepark. He should probably just have hired a Chinese construction company. They would have finished this project in a week.

I will not shut up about the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. I talk about them all the time and work them into every conversation I have. I built a shrine in my room for the yellow one who died because sadly no one noticed because she died around 9/11. Wanna see it?

It's weird because it's something that you'd see in some abstract landscape art, but real, so it's not as interesting and ultimately looks like the start of construction project that lost all funding right at the beginning and Podunk NV won't be getting their Costco.
