In addition to all of the conferences I am attending this year, I am also going to squeeze in as many small research trips as I can! This trips could be a couple of hours all the way up to a full weekend. These are a little harder for me to plan out, but I will keep you up-to-date on what is going on. Right now this is what we are looking at:
March 2019: Area 51!!!
I will be going on a trip to camp out near area 51 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Bob Lazar’s testimony. This will be a huge trip that will include myself, along with several other show hosts including Natasha Nyxx, Doc Skinner, and others. I am nervous but excited to have the opportunity to go on this trip with such influential people. Expect A LOT of information in the follow up to the event. I hope to see some interesting things in the sky, and not to have anything too scary happening. Bonus will be spending a couple nights in Vegas…who could turn that down?
I love museums. History and how it is represented is something that has interested me for quite some time. I think the fact that it is so fluid is really what captures my attention, as they say, history is written by the victor…so it’s looking at what might have really happened and those possibilities that interest me the most. Luckily there is no shortage of museums here in California! Expect lots of pictures and recounting of exhibits here. If I can get video, i will post on my YouTube Channel, but if not…lots of pictures to post here for your enjoyment. I will always give my interpretation of what I see, and i hope you are comfortable enough to look and let me know what you think! A short list of museums I will be visiting are below, but note, I have tons more to attend…these are just the first ones to come to mind:
The Getty Villa
My favorite museum, because the subject matter is so close to my heart! The Getty Villa is a recreation of the Villa of the Papyri, and focuses on ancient Roman, Greek, and Etruscan culture. I discovered this museum when I was studying for my minor in classical civilizations, and has remained at the top of my list since!
Museum of Bhagavad-gita
This museum is a diorama museum of representations of the Bhagavad-gita. I expect there will be a lot of great information for me to find here. Especially as I dive deeper into Eastern Religion and Culture and what clues may lie there.
This museum is part of the UCLA campus and includes cultural objects from Africa, Native America, South America, Asia, and the Pacific. It will be a great opportunity to look at cultural objects from these locations all in one place to compare and contrast.
Antelope Valley Indian Museum State Historic Park
This museum focuses on cultural pieces from native americans of the western Great Basin, California and the Southwest. I have always had a strong appreciation for native culture, so it will be quite interesting to check out this museum and see what I can find.
A local museum that I have a huge appreciation for! I have been to this museum countless times, yet it always feels like the first time. The focus is on Native American, African, Pre-Columbian and Asian art, paintings, South American ethnographic items, decorative arts, and natural history. However, there is always a rotating exhibit as well, I am hoping for one that will be applicable. It means I might visit a few times!
Natural History Museum of Los Angeles and San Diego Natural History Museum
What list of museums wouldn’t be complete without a visit to a natural history museum? Why not two? It will be interesting to visit both, and have the ability to compare the two. This will be a given, and a great one to share with you all.
San Diego Museum of Man
A focus on pre-columbian history of the Americas. I think to look at these cultures from before their “discovery” will be quite interesting.
