Knowing how touchy Alamo Heights is, I can't imagine that his neighbors or the city will be happy if this "attraction" starts attracting dozens of visitors.

On the news, it looked like a fairly conventional garage that happens to be full of paintings done on toilet seats. The recurring theme to the paintings is logos, including corporate logos, military logos and logos of TV shows.

I have been and loved it, the gentleman that owns it is real friendly and every toilet seat has a history which he will gladly explain!! And interesting, eccentric museum... I think it is great to have alternative attractions in our city.

We've met Mr Smith on a different occasion that did not include his collection. He's a wonderful man. I thought he had closed up his "gallery" some time ago.

A co-worker of mine just went, said he and his wife had a great time and spent over two hours there!

I've never heard of the place and had to seach for this thread, but in case anyone is interested in what this museum entails, here are some pics and info on it...
