It’s not really a wheel of doom. What you see above is a digitally-manipulated photo of the Centennial Wheel at Chicago’s Navy Pier. Your PopCulteer and his lovely wife visited the Windy City a few weeks in what may well turn out to be the last trip we get to take this year. I took a photo right after we got off the massive Ferris Wheel, looking up at the beast, and then took it to high-contrast black and white, and still not happy with it, took it negative.

I do that kinda crap when I have spare time.

This is part of our “Chicago-Inspired Art” event, happening every Monday in March.

Meanwhile, over in radio-land, Monday on The AIR, our Monday Marathon runs from 7 AM to 2 PM, and brings you seven hours of recent episodes of Radio Free Charleston. At 2 PM we bring you an encore of the Life Speaks UFO Special, which you can read about HERE. 3 PM sees either a rerun, or a new episode of Prognosis. Herman Linte has a new show in the can, but we’re having technical issues bringing it over from the UK (not related to the travel ban…I hope).

You can listen to The AIR at the website, or on this embedded radio player…

Possibly later today, but more likely on Tuesday, you can expect more VirtualToylanta posts, as I compile more video that I shot over the years at JoeLanta/ToyLanta into neat little packages.  I’d planned to do all of these over the weekend, but your PopCulteer has been completely swamped of late.
