Visiting The Museum Of Jurassic Technology



I read Mr. Wilson’s Cabinet Of Wonder: Pronged Ants, Horned Humans, Mice on Toast, and Other Marvels of Jurassic Technology while enrolled in the San Francisco Art Institute New Genres Masters Program back in 2003, and today I finally had the opportunity to check out MJT in person. I particularly enjoyed the motorized rotating bell wheel installed on the first floor. Take a listen: Ambient Sound From the Museum of Jurassic Technology, Culver City, California

I also enjoyed sipping on hot tea with lemon and sugar while contemplating the view from the roof. The babbling fountain and the bird cages integrated into the columbarium are very appropriate touches.

I highly recommend checking out this hidden bastion of conceptual art especially if you appreciate detail, like reading, have an active imagination and a penchant for steam-punkery, even before it was cool. For more information contact The Museum of Jurassic Technology.

I’m at Green and Embarcadero, coming north is the Chinese demonstrators, coming south are Tibetan demonstrators and they’re going to meet right in the middle here. Tibetans on the left side of the street, the west side, Chinese on the east side. We’ll see what happens. There’s 4 policemen. listen

I’m at the corner of…



I’m at the corner of Embarcadero and Green waiting for the torch. I’ve talked to a couple of people and heard that they are not coming this way anymore. Now they’re on Van Ness after a bus ride from McCovey Cove to Van Ness. So I’m going to wait here for a little bit longer and then go back to Justin Herman.[lots of noise, please listen] listen

I’m now at the Embarcadero at Justin Herman Plaza. It’s looking like the torch is getting down the street somewhere, its on the Jumbo-Tron. I can’t tell where, I am gonna investigate and get back. listen

I’m down at Pier one…



I’m down at Pier one at the Embarcadero. It doesn’t look like the torch will make it there. There’s minimal police presence and probably about 5,000 or so protesters. Lots of flags. We got Turkistan and Taiwan, Tibet, China, America, the Three Crazy Pink ones. listen
