The Accidental Sea

A short video about the Salton Sea; possibly my favorite video on youtube and IIRC made by the author of 'Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children'.


 Thanks for that. It is an interesting subject.  I will check on  the peculiar children later.

 This video popped up on YouTube  while following  a fellow Gogglers  tip on Hawkwind music. One thing led to another. It's  a man's visit to the Salton Sea

I agree.  In spirit perhaps compatible, but not until you populate it with inhabitants of a Steampunk version of Mad Max.

Mad Maximilian: Beyond Crystal Dome (1885)

Not much makes me laugh out loud, but that did...

I was out that way, visited Slab city for a day in mid February. They have salvation mountain, and the slightly lesser know outdoor art gallery made from salvaged and reclaimed materials in 'East Jesus', so named because it's so remote you travel until you find Jesus and then you have to head a bit further east before you find it (or that's the story they told me).

But I also found some nice graffiti gallery space done on two cement round walls of a bit forming a third point in the triangle of salvation mountain, and east Jesus. It's not on any maps or guides of the slabs or salton sea area.

 Roving, its reassuring go know it hadn't been tidied up. One day I would like to visit the place and see it in all its faded glory

There's a documentary going around, "A Day in Slab City", by the Vice network. In Australia it can be picked up via SBS On Demand.

With luck it may turn up here in NZ.  I shall watch out for it
