I went into NYC yesterday, and spent some time at the Met. I went up to the roof to check out Big Bambu. It’s pretty cool.

I did not realize at the time, though, that Big Bambu is also the name of a Cheech and Chong album. This is funny, because, as I was looking at this installation, I thought to myself, “I wonder if this thing was all planned out in a CAD system, or if these guys just smoked a lot of weed and lashed a bunch of bamboo together at random?” So, the name would indicate the latter. But I think they did plan it out, at least to some extent, and were probably not high while climbing around in the bamboo, and lashing it all together.
