My second most favorite thing about living in L.A. for only 2 years is becoming a resource for super dope shit for locals. The Museum of Jurassic Technology is at the top of the super dope shit list. The first rule of web logging is opening with a visually arresting image to make someone want to read more. You only open with a bizarre, vague, awkward, sexually ambiguous photo if you have others to support it. Which I do. This is a sculpture of Goofy on the head of a needle. Nope, I’m glad you asked… it didn’t go popular on instagram, ya I know… Sammyandthecity goes popular every time, but not a statue of Goofy the size of a subatomic particle.
The mobile home exhibit is one of the most complete exhibits of mobile homing ever exhibited.
I doubt you have ever thought what happens to dice when they have out lived their usefulness. Rotten Luck focuses on what happens when a die dies.
Just an X-Ray image of a pitcher plant for your jaded eyes.
Hypersymbolic cognitation, or superstition was basically law before we assassinated all the witches and invented the radio. It’s hard to understand if this museum contains massive amounts of uncatalogued knowledge… or is a very elaborate joke. Mice on toast, or mice pie cures bedwetting and stammering. Now you know why Ben Hundreds never wet the bed.
When you are a child you are not suppose to pick up a dying animal. Because if it dies while you are holding it, you will suffer from trembling hands for the rest of your life.
In another rags to riches tale, we meet a stray dog wandering the streets of Moscow. Who’d a thought she’d be gold medal figure skater Oksana Biaul!… I mean. Laika! The first earth born creature to ever travel into space. And you thought it was a camera… shame on you.
Real holograms are made out of glass. If you break the glass each shard will contain the fulls image if the hologram. It’s science.
These are just holy spirits.
This is a garden… on the ROOF!
Early gaming set up.
200 years ago kids still sat alone like nerds focussed on some worthless toy. In this case a piece of cheese string, and the ability to stunt so hard motherfuckers try to tie you, can make a portrait of Phillip Seymore Hoffman with your fingers.
Three hands seems like cheating, this is like a pilgrim with a game genie.
Jim Darling took to it faster than 2 rats humping in a wool sack.
This is my favorite. The only known species of bat called “the Piercing Devil” is eternally frozen in this block of lead. It is said they bat has a superior evolved echolocation, which allows the animal to fly through solid objects. No fuck you, read it here.
