Is it wrong that that made me think of Deep Space Nine?

that is almost as cool as the unfinished hotel dominating Pyongyang.

This is quite possibly the coolest thing you've linked to Chuckles.

This and that weird abandoned Nipponese island.

a boon to low-budget sci-fi directors everywhere.

I want to go there and camp out. Can you imagine how beautiful it would be to sit on the top floor of one of those hotels and watch the sunset and stare at the stars? I imagine it would feel much like you were a survivor of the apocalypse, alone and lost and wandering the desert.

Almost as cool as seeing those abandoned Dubai hotel towers jutting up from the sea once the polar ice-caps melt.

Weird -- the latest update on that blog is about my art director here at work.

someone MUST send these images to the James Bond production team; hopefully, it's not too late to film some scenes for "Quantum of Solace" at these locations.

That hotel LOOKS like a quantum of solace...

It's Vermillion Sands, straight out of J.G. Ballard. Except it's not in Florida.

I'm saving up for a plane ticket starting now.
