I got a peak at a dead mall in my town today. Creepy. One of the creators of the Blair Witch Project wanted to film a movie in the mall, but I don’t think it went anywhere. Bonus link: a drone’s eye view of the place.

Foggy Spaces

I spend a lot of time looking at maps. I think pretty much everyone nowadays does. But every time I try to locate my hometown on a map with no labels I can hardly ever locate it. Each time I’ve gone back home, I’m struck by how different the mental maps I have of Janesville are compared to how things actually are.

I love the illustrations used in the article to show what we know vs. what is with our physical spaces. Example:

A New Day Dawning: How Check Your Head” Invented the Beastie Boys

It wasn’t until Check Your Head that we discovered ourselves and how our records affected people and how our actions affected people,” Diamond says. Later, while discussing the Check Your Head tour, he notes that it was the first time that they’d played rooms small enough to actually interact with the crowd in a meaningful way, and that they were no longer these rock star people that needed to be separated from [the audience] anymore.”

One of the best concerts I’ve ever been to was during this tour. The show was at a wedding/banquet hall. Probably big for a wedding, but small for a concert. I was a couple feet away from the front of the stage, in reaching distance of the band.

I Want Crab. Pure Maryland Crab.

A right of passage in Maryland that can be scruffy, chaotic affairs. The caked spices get under your nails. Your clothes reek of brine and beer. Filling your stomach crab by crab is a laborious process of demolition, though the effort makes the meal that much more satisfying.”
