[misc] - venezia-biennale/otaku/tourroom. This first shot is dreamy. I so want a block of designer apts underneath my bed. Each decorated in the styles i'd decorate heaven in. The whole bedroom it's in is dreamy too. From the sculptural walls to the display cabinets. (ignore the bedsheets and rug). Until you realize that if you keep clicking the blue arrows underneath, it's a choose-your-own-adventure inside a store!

"Where do you find chroming facilities?
- Phone book under "plating"
- Local motorcycle shops... people are always chroming bits of motorcycles so they'll know where it's done. Also they're a bit over the edge so they don't tend to laugh when you tell them you want to chrome a computer. That's reason enough to like these guys."

days dont get much more frustrating than this. first i was hit by a virus which deleted all my registry files. once i finally got fed up with trying to fix it, i elected to just reinstall windows (yet again), and forgot to back up my bookmarks folder.
i want to use one of my "rewind-life-by-two-days" tokens now please.
