Just north of Newport, Oregon on 101

October 2018. A short visit to the "last free place in America" which turned out to be little more than a giant litter box in the desert for the disabled, disenfranchised, drug addled and disillusioned. Summer temperatures typically exceed 110 degrees. Water is the most precious commodity. People shit in the sand. Tires, bottles and pallets mark off territories. Armored Military vehicles traverse the area on the daily. Military drones surveil the residents overhead. Mob justice prevails. Imagine a society where Lord of the Flies meets Road Warrior and you get the picture.

Always wet, mostly boring, fairly predictable, sometimes very awesome to look at. But let a butterfly flap its wings in China, and I'm suddenly broken on the rocky shore of her natural irrationality. It's never just my fault. Though it always is.

A time and place in which my personal aesthetic sensibilities were mostly overwhelmed by a sense of oneness with the universe. Which quickly faded. A rare experience.

Just before the Colorado/Wyoming border I came across a small church. The random, stubborn austerity of the place was an immediate attraction. The turnstile on the graveyard was amusing.

In this episode, we rigorously interrogate the initial proposition that Wyoming is "Like No Place on Earth," and thereafter proceed to document (for posterity) indisputable, empirical evidence in support of aforesaid theory. And fail.

Rejected email add-on for freelance Seattle copywriter. They hated it. I don't think my portrayal of potential clients as retarded people in an insane asylum appealed to them. Heh.

Late submission to Converse video competition. Not terrible. Better than an etch-a-sketch of a cloud.

Mysterious place. Seems abandoned by everyone except spirits.
