Nothing special this week. Yet another photo from a collection of old things I have, and this is just a building found about the city.

Unless you’re a really sketchy person, you should stay long and far from Filmores.
But it makes for a fantastic picture.
I had started writing a rant about the Web Blackout vs SOPA / PIPA bills, but thinking things over the bills are going to fail but not as a result of Blacking out the web. I think the entire idea stands as a ‘this is how shitty things can get’ but as usual it won’t get that shitty because there’s one person at the top paying attention. And it’s not because people were moderately inconvenienced today.
Anyways if you want some lulz from this I highly suggest checking out @herpderpedia and read all the fail that has resulted.
P.S. I’ll probably re-organize my thoughts and write them up for some more shits and giggles when the full fallout from today happens.
A shot from the forgotten urban parks project I was so excited to do. But it sucks doing this kind of thing solo, as parks are best enjoyed with some good company.
Maybe this summer I’ll get the time to go raid all the city parks, with or without company because it’s something worth finishing up.
So when I went to ‘Merica like two weeks ago, I didn’t at all expect to swing through Chicago, but it happened I took advantage of these things and got some pictures out of it. Here’s one:
Far as I know this is under one of their subway lines. Obviously I did some work to make it innermeresting, but I like it this way. Almost oldie, almost 70s-ish.
This week I take a look back, way back at a wonderful place that was first badly renovated causing problems then an aborted attempt to fix caused even more and in a twist, the building mysteriously burned down. (And many hobos were blamed.)
In the process an iconic student restaurant was taken out along with the nice historic building and in its wake is a leveled gravel lot. However I managed to get some pictures of the place post burn down.
The story and events are well documented.
Bit late on this, however my grand excuse is that I was caught up on work and stuff and thus unmotivated to really get around to posting and dealing with this – blaw, blaw, blaw.
Anyways, Saturday of past, I was doing the monk thing and skipping on paying transit fare in my adventures of meeting new peoples and realistically it was not that far (approx 60 minute walk). So I decided that since I was going to be walking such a grand distance, I would take advantage of the situation and get rolling with my graffiti documentary plans because the intended route I would be taking just happens to pass through one of the major graffiti hubs in the city.
I also decided that I’d do another photo journal thing like when I rode my bike home that one time.
Sometime soon I should have some pics of the graffiti I shot up. I just have to sort through the 100 photos I shot. Some of them were over 100 feet in length and it’ll take me some time to stitch them together as one long work.
