Vegas

So Vegas was really fun. I attended a whole 1 hour of the 3-day conference. I know, BAD! Oh well. The weather was beautiful, in the mid-70s the whole time. We spent some time drinking pool-side. My white-ass skin hasn't seen this much sun since I lived in San Diego over a year ago. We did a hell of a lot of gambling, with some pretty good luck. Here are some pictures:








OK, here's my favorite part. I'm a bit demented with this being my favorite part so bear with me. We went to Fremont Street. This is the area of old downtown Vegas where they do the light show on the overhead canopy. It was OK. I thought it was going to be a little more acid-trippy than it actually was. The whole thing was very patriotic, which made it very cheesy. But, the vendors were selling some pretty out-there crap. There was a whole lot of crazy Jesus shit. For example, did you know that you can be the proud owner of a framed Jesus photo that has psychadelic moving swirls behind his body? It seemed so wrong when I was looking at it. This one, though, was by far my favorite random piece of art/crap. It's a hologram Jesus. That's right, a hologram Jesus. When you look at it head on his eyes are closed.




Move just a tad to the left and his eyes open.




I'm not religious at all so I don't really find this offensive. But, damn, it still seems wrong. Let's all take some acid and trip out on Jesus! Radical!

Zealots are funny.

I guess when folks lose a pile of money, in a bleary haze they reach out and feel the need to find Jesus.
The pic is very disturbing. Kind of like the stuff Carries mom had in her house.
You should have bought one to hang on your mailbox and keep anon neighb away.

I agree...it just seems so wrong. I'm not religious either and it doesn't offend me - but for all those good people who are trying to be good Christians this seems like a travisty.

Oh my word, that is freaky and hilarious all at the same time. I would like to meet the person that would hang that in their home. On second thought, no I don't.
