I'm rooting through some old stuff, perhaps nostalgically, but mostly just wondering what's there. A whole collection of Las Vegas hotel bills for instance looks fantastic, feels fantastic and brings memories flooding back. When I got lost with architecture in the UK I found it in Las Vegas. It was the early nineties. I was in my early thirties and it was a very good education. The architecture was conceptually supremely pure (although it didn't look it) and so was the general attitude (although it didn't look it). Certainly for a decade or so the UK looked stranger than Las Vegas, and I still get real rushes of contempt when I come across crap like this: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-16869029
