    It's good, but where is it? Is it random street art, looks more professional. Love the optical allusion of the wrap around bar.

    Eureka, California.  It's street art but sponsored by the city.  Every year, they do a fundraiser, and bring in international, national, and local artists (who all call themselves street artists) to do these murals.

    This one is on the side of a great pizza joint, and fronts a busy street in the city.

    there is sooo much in here. Wonderful.

    It's funky, and in this guy's particular style.  He's a local artist, and we've seen his work around for years.  It's just cool to see him do this for the city.  Thanks, tim.

    You have my deepest sympathy. I wonder they don’t include a bottle of champagne with which to celebrate your figuring out their instructions. 

    I completely agree with the inclusion of alcohol with with to celebrate.  But I have to insist on a good, dark spicy rum instead.  🙂

    Wow. You might wear out your magnifier on that...

    No kidding!  The pulley system was the WORST.  I do terribly with spatial puzzles/problems, and this was one big spatial puzzle.  Mine, once assembled, looks just slightly different even after following the directions exactly.  It took me a while, but I finally looked it up, and the final picture they use to show you how it's "supposed" to look is from another machine!  I must have stared at those pulleys for an hour, trying to figure out why mine were different.  lol

    Ok... Don't nobody go dissing IKEA after seeing this. Jeez... 

    It was definitely a challenge.  Luckily it had step by tedious step instructions.  I was extremely methodical, which made things slow, but I got it together.  There's only one bit where I screwed up - used the wrong width metal plates in a spot.  But it won't affect the integrity of the machine, and I am NOT unbolting the whole upper half to switch out the proper plates.

    Okay I admit I’m a nerd. That’s cool. 

    Cool to see, from a safe distance while it is not in operation?  Yes, I agree completely.  🙂

    it's very striking!

    Yeah, it's pretty awesome.  I love how grungy, savage, and chaotic the edges are.  Then the crispness of the center just... does something.  I like it a lot.
