The Residents (Randy, not Chuck but Rico and Bob) came to New York to put on their Shadowland show on April 26, 2016 after playing their new movie, Theory of Obscurity by Don Hardy.

Hey! Ho! Let’s Go! Took the family to a show about the Ramones and the birth of punk from Forrest Hill, Queens. Hard to believe that by 2014, all four of the band’s original members—lead singer Joey Ramone (1951–2001), guitarist Johnny Ramone (1948–2004), bassist Dee Dee Ramone (1951–2002) and drummer Tommy Ramone (1949–2014)—had died

 

 

 

This amazing show at the Rubin Museum of Art in Manhattan runs until August 1, 2016

A week of walking with art:IMG_5929

Land Art deals with concepts that link works of art with Earth. Area 51 deals with concepts that link alien visitations with Earth. It is interesting to note that land artist Michael Heizer’s top secret project lifelong project “City” is less than 50 miles from the top secret facility of Area 51.

“Heizer’s project is actually a landing field for future UFOs, man!” ;P

I left Las Vegas (with my dad) heading north and took the cheesy titled Extraterrestrial Highway to get there. Watching the temperatures drop from 50f to 8f, we arrived in the tiny town of Rachel in the middle of the snow covered high desert and pulled into the Little A’Le’Inn for a great cup of coffee, homemade pie and conversation with the local ladies that ran it.

The signs of cow crossings with hovering UFOs seemed funny until we drove by a few dead frozen cows on the side of the road. That put a spiked the heebee-jeebees meter. Finally, I went on my own to the main entrance of the secret base so now I can say I was there.

Note: The paper on the ceiling of Little A’Le’Inn is signed money.
