Officials in California are studying plans and ideas to save the Salton Sea. The large lake in the southern most part of California was created in 1908 following a levee break that allowed the Colorado River to slowly (re)fill a shallow valley. In the years that followed, the Salton Sea became a home to wildlife, supported a tourist economy and ultimately became tied to local agriculture in the Imperial Valley. It is that agriculture that is ultimately killing the Salton.

As so many people have posted images of various abandoned sites around the dying lake, I thought it would be a good offer some recent news on restoration attempts.

Will it work? Unknown, but the same ideas and techniques have been (pardon the pun) floated for other threatened inland lakes and seas. The question is money and will..

Last month was a fantastic and fun episode of Fright Night at the CIA. Tomorrow’s show should be no different. The artist for June is none other than Untamed Highway (Comics) well known for their very alternative and edgy work. The music this month will be provided by Mad Marionettes and the sounds if a twisted carnival.

If you weren’t at last month’s show, here’s some of what you missed from artist: Michael Broom and music by Renfield



Welcome back my friends to the show that will soon end..[18 behind the cut] )
