Saturday, July 26, was a turning point, make it over the hump kind of day in the Mind Shaft. Uncle Sam’s Elvis Island Immigration Station hardware fabrication was completed except for a few minor tweaks yet to be done. The creative process is now well under way with paint and stain being applied, and the audio and video editing is about to commence. Dr. Rheinbrain, the extraterrestrial anthropologist, and Dr. Fabio, the renowned French anthropologist, are simultaneously working on their large round icons that will reside on each side of Elvis Island Immigration Station. The book table is complete, the new books need to be fabricated. Dr. Gee Whiz repurposed the head from Skjerry back to Skelvis. There is nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile.

My weekend was filled with philanthropic socializing, anthropological fabrication and mutant vehicle maintenance. The Black Rock Arts Foundation was the beneficiary at the San Francisco Premiere of Voyage to Utopia, a film about David Best creating one of his temples for Burning Man. After the film, many attendees sauntered to the bohemian Cafe Flore for much imbibing and seriously eclectic schmoozing.

Saturday morning brought the usual jaunt to the Mind Shaft to continue fabricating Uncle Sam’s Elvis Island Immigration Station. The end of this day started by picking up Helvetica at the Larkspur Ferry. We drove to the Carneros wine region in southern Napa Valley to attend a Professional Food Society benefit dinner and wine tasting at Artesa Winery overlooking Di Rosa Preserve.

Sunday was  an excellent expedition to Drennon Ranch in West Marin to continue the maintenance on Huracan, the recreation of the God of Fierce Wind from the Mayan Culture. Our friends at Drennon Ranch are creating the Celtic Forest for Burning Man 2008.

It is fascinating to consider that I am talking to the World at large. In any event, I am now blogging through WordPress because I am about to embark on using WordPress for a Content Management System for the Rex Foundation. This will be an excellent testing ground.
