Garbage Goat has been eating the trash of Spokane since the mid-1970s, making him one of the world’s hardest-working pieces of public art. The vacuum-powered steel goat was designed and built by the late Sister Paula Mary Turnbull, known to the art world as “the welding nun.”
“This is Howard Finster, telling you how it’s done,” said the voice of the late Rev. Howard Finster (1916-2001), broadcast over a hidden loudspeaker in his Paradise Garden.
A massive, 100-square-mile Texas ranch that belonged to recently deceased mega-millionaire T. Boone Pickens went on sale for $250m in 2017.
With $70m in revenue, Michael Acton Smith’s company imploded. The company, Moshi Monsters, had been a breakout success. Over 80 million kids flocked to the site to play with the “Tamagotchi-like monsters” earning in-game funds to spend on customizations.
