A Gentle Kiss in the Hot Tub

Daily Photo – A Gentle Kiss in the Hot Tub These snow monkeys are the greatest. I spent so long with them, we almost had a three-way. They are all wild (in the natural sense, mind you), and they come down from the mountains near Nagano, Japan, for several hours a day to play in the natural hot springs. They gallivant around, have fights, play with their kids, have a bit of sweet carnal monkey fun, check their email, and pose for my camera. These two monkeys spent a lot of time together… they were in maximum “relaxation mode”. They lounged around in every possible position and took occasional ..read more

Daily Photo – Where Daenerys Targaryen Dragon-Roasted The Slavers Here’s another one of the images from my 1000 Stories from 1000 Places NFT drop. It sold out in minutes, but they are now available to trade on OpenSea and X2Y2, etc so be sure to check them out. This is a Aït Benhaddou, an incredible kasbah near Ouarzazate, Morocco. I’ve always wanted to visit this place ever since I saw it in Gladiator. It’s the place where Russell Crowe was taken on a stretcher and where he learned to become a gladiator. You may also remember it if you watch Game of Thrones. It’s one of the spots where Daene ..read more

It sold out in minutes, but they are now available to trade on OpenSea and X2Y2, etc so be sure to check them out. This was difficult to process right but it was a lot of fun. Shots in Manhattan are often filled with all kinds of complex activity, and Times Square amps that all up to the next order of magnitude. The weather was perfect on this day, and I know that isn’t always the case. Since everything was more or less idyllic, I decided to make the most of it and see ho ..read more

Alan Watts Discovers Zen and Enlightenment at Burning Man – 4 Different AIs in 1 
Stuck in Customs
by Trey Ratcliff
4d ago
This technique combines four different AIs into one to create something entirely new. It’s all 100% AI-generated. One AI is for the photo of Alan. One is for the “speech” about finding zen at Burning Man, a place Alan has never been. Another is to emulate his voice, which I trained with dozens of his speeches. This turned out to be rather difficult because Alan has one of the strangest speech patterns since Elon Musk. The last is video animation that maps his voice to the photo to create a video where he blinks, moves his mouth, twists his face here and there, skin movement, etc. This art proj ..read more

It sold out in minutes, but they are now available to trade on OpenSea and X2Y2, etc so be sure to check them out. It was my first time in Maui, and all I knew about it I got from Lost. I loved that show. Too bad it ended so badly. But I always loved this talk by JJ Abrams that he gave at the TED conference. He talked about having a “Magic Box” and you never really show people what is inside. I ended up speaking with him at a future Google TED-like conference. He went after me and sai ..read more

Daily Photo – A Wine and Sunset Adventure in Cape Town After massive immigration problems (and literally getting Stuck In Customs in Botswana), I finally made it to Cape Town. We had a ton of fun there together! On my first full day, my friend Neville had planned an amazing trip through the wine country. I went to probably one of the most awesome wineries in the world there… I’ve forgotten the name now. It was so good I forgot a lot, in fact. But, I didn’t forget to take this sunset photo as we were leaving. A Wine and Sunset Adventure in Cape Town Photo Information Date Taken2014-10-09 ..read more

Daily Photo – When the Songs Were Forlorn When you are surrounded by constant strange-light, everything feels like a waking dream. And when I reached this point, my iPod playlist started getting into the forlorn songs.

This is the entrance to Milford Sound from the Tasman Sea. It would have been so amazing to come across this and wonder what it was like up inside the fjord. And then, the captain could just decide to sail up inside and land some boats on the shore. Maybe if they were a little hungry ..read more

Daily Photo – Lockdown Walk Every day during the lockdown in New Zealand, which I think only lasted about four weeks, I would go on an afternoon hike. I found myself drawn to this area again and again… these tiny little perfect pools of water… I actually took these with my mobile phone, although I don’t think most people would guess that in 100 years.
