I went to Costco today and bought over eighty pounds of meat for a friend’s wedding.  About 56 lbs of tri-tip, and 26 lbs of chicken.  Sorry, there’s no pictures of the chicken, but they would have been boring anyways.

56 pounds of tri-tip is by far the most tri-tip I’ve ever bought.  I look forward to breaking that personal record one day.  Here’s what 56 lbs of tri-tip looks like:

Four 15 pound-ish cryovac bags with tri-tip inside…mmm

This is what they call a "case" it doesn't look as big as I'd imagine it, but they're 60-80 lbs of tri-tip

Waldo ain’t got nuthin’ on this guy

Liu Bolin is a Chinese artist who has seemingly perfected the art of disappearing into the background.  I think my favorite is the first one in front of the soda aisle.  But I think he blends in the best with the dump truck.  I didn’t even know he was in the picture at first glance; it was his hair that gave it away.  It needed to be more orange.

According to the NY Times article, it takes several hours to setup a shot, and they use paint and makeup to blend him in on site. I can’t imagine standing still that long, especially in the heat and humidity of Beijing.  Hope he does his shots in the winter.
