Double Rainbow is an essay about one of the most important artworks of the decade, Paul Vasquez’s Yosemitebear Mountain Double Rainbow 1-8-10. I mean Double Rainbow is a story about not very good stories,like Paul Vasquez’s rhythmic divine frenzy freakout of January 8, 2010 is not a very good story. And stories that start “I was so high that I” are not usually very good stories, but sometimes. I mean Double Rainbow is an inquiry into the meme sublime, manufactured candor, California Schadenfreude, sacrosanct Youtube, and the Grateful Dead.
