Area 15 is like a mall of the bizarre and interesting (and also bars).  Inside, the Las Vegas Meow Wolf installation is called Omega Mart.  It begins with a store and takes a bit of a turn.

Beyond and behind the Omega Mart is the Factory with alien motivation and unbelievable equipment.  Everything is interactive, there are stories and backstories and branching pathways.  puzzles, games, and mysteries to unravel.  I went on a mission to hack the Omega Mart!

My original shadowbox idea finally realized in all its glory!

Apple Mouse Shadowbox

This was actually the idea that started it all!  It took me a while to finally complete it.  I know that i am missing the serial mouse from the original Macintosh and 128.  Despite having one, i decided to keep my 128 with all its pieces.  Besides, i never touched one until after college.  The mice represented here had my hands all over them most of my life.  I am very happy with how it came out.

Ducati Motorcycle for sale!

be3n sits on Ducati motorcycleI have acquired a 2001 Ducati Monster 900 Dark i.e. that was purchased for the movie Mission Impossible 2.  It has practically no miles (1886).  It was ignored in a garage for a decade so it required a fair amount of paperwork and some maintenance to get it working well and street legal.  there are a few minor cosmetic issues like a small dent in the gas tank and broken and taped on turn signals. (i believe the signals were removed for the film)

A few people have asked me to get them pictures and info so i figured this was the fastest way while i work on my actual sales page.  I tried to document all the flaws.
