The New York Times has a travel feature called 36 Hours. The schtick is that they lay out a core set of things to do in 36 hours of real time. This year the kids’ Spring Break snuck up on us and I had nothing planned. So I put together a short jaunt to Milwaukee with some (planned and unplanned) stops along the way. S-L added the meal components.┬áHere’s our report:

We saw a bunch of cops and people standing in line, then some Trump-oriented vehicles. We quickly realized we stumbled on a Trump rally. Fuck that guy. So we got out to take some pics.

I was going through my computer, managing all of the video I’ve collected over the last few months, and I realized that I had a pretty nifty round trip experience with the Chicago Cultural Center.

A few months back, I was walking through the first floor and saw they were setting up a new show with some interesting configurations, so I shot a quick video:

The other day, I was back there with the family, and we saw the brilliant shows they had installed.

One was all about spiders:

Another about photography and space:

And here’s the little cubbies you can see them constructing in the beginning of the film:
