Salt Lake City

I'm back from Salt Lake City. Whilst there, I managed to visit Temple Square, which is Utah's most popular tourist destination. Part of its appeal lies in its accessibility: three city blocks in downtown Salt Lake City contain nearly 20 attractions related to Mormon pioneer history and genealogy, including the Salt Lake Temple, the Tabernacle, and the Family History Library. Other SLC photos can be seen here!

I also saw the Gilgal Sculpture Garden, which was somewhat freaky in appearance -- the stuff children's nightmares are rife with odd statues (like The Sphinx with the face of Jos. Smith and the body of the Sphinx [Egypt] and "The Monument to the Trade") are imagery that could haunt you for life!

For those of you on Facebook, you already saw my on-board "first class meals", which looked a little bit better then the ones I had coming home from San Francisco! Mmmmmm... Airline food!

I'm back in New York City and have been playing catch-up. Tomorrow K.K. and I will see Barbiere Di Siviglia at the Metropolitan Opera on our six month anniversary, and in one week it will be a busy weekend with Halloween and the NY Bear Den gathering on 1 Nov '09.

Now, watch "I Seen Beyonce At Burger King":

The sculpture garden is featured in the Karen Black meets the Mormons sci-fi flick Plan 10 From Outer Space (no relation to the Ed Woods similarly titled film).

Pretty creepy, isn't it?

Even more so with the use they make of it in the movie, yes. How they got the Utah Film Board to help them film it I do not know...
