No one seems to have gotten Fortified Door yet, so, in order:

1.  Another rebus;

2.  The usual methodologies (extant work; Street View; Los Angeles; place previously unknown to me);

3.  The conflation of four "topics of permanent conversation";

4.  See above.

4a.  "[T]he sort of thing handled by professionals in competition with their past masterpieces and each other."

5.  "Single-take tracking shot."

This album was on in the rental car pretty much continuously on my last two visits to LA, and had a major impact on the as-yet-unseen collages.
Just solved this homework problem via the induction method & feeling briefly (& absurdly) self-satisfied:

"What is the units digit (ones digit) of the product of any six consecutive positive integers?"

"GUADALAJARA WON'T DO!" Our man among the faithful.  Clearly visible at far right from 00:24 - 00:26, hands in pockets, bald forehead shining under the lights, an expression -- almost happiness? -- playing across his face.

EUR3900 = the technology required to make a tree's portrait and the bumpy round-trip flight required to get L., I & "EXTRA" special assistant Rose T. Cat on-site in Maui for a week.  So, not this time, despite liking this Lynchish scene a lot.

Tantalus, Dione, Serratus, Alpha - Traverse from Sigurd Creek to Lake Lovelywater -- great trip report, plus really excellent photographs (scroll).  I've been up both ends of this thing but have never summited in the Tantalus Range or made the full traverse.

DOT:  It is good to see you.  Not that I ever forgot you, George.  You gave me so much.

GEORGE:  What did I give you?

DOT: Oh, many things.  You taught me about concentration.  At first I thought that meant just being still, but I was to understand it meant much more.  You meant to tell me to be where I was -- not some place in the past or future.

The Silence of the Masses Could Be Social Media

"[S]ocial media, which masquerades as communication between peers but primarily functions as individuals consuming the social as isolated atoms while compiling and generating data for the system. Social media are a huge effort to prevent the masses from being silent in Baudrillard’s subversive sense — if the masses are silent, they move beyond manipulation, beyond influence, beyond desire, beyond control, beyond comprehension by the forces attempting to exercise sovereignty over them. If the masses seem to speak, as they now do in social media (and through all the other means for surveilling their everyday activities with 'smart' devices), they yield the data that appears to make them manageable. They become 'social' again, in the sense of being amenable to the mechanisms of social control."
