In the midst of a major SoCal downpour, Coco and I went visiting the MJT for her first time. I had given her my initial impressions as we drove up from OC but how do you explain the genius/madness of this joint?

She didn’t get creeped out over some of the odder displays and got pretty excited over the string forms art exhibit. And sat through the hour-long “Great Soviet Eclipse” film.
