I've been pretty intrigued by the slew of reports coming out of Detroit about its decaying infrastructure. Journalists make it seem like Detroit's current economic status defines why it's in such a way--like they're just finding out that Detroit is a piece of shit. I think it's an interesting media phenomenon, but the actual reason I follow the story so closely has to do with my true infatuation with the derelicte. It's so hideous and beautiful at the same time. Time Magazine has done a really cool "photo essay" about it called "Detroit's Beautiful, Horrible Decline," and I think it's worth a looksie. Just follow the link.

Steve McNair, my favorite quarterback for my favorite NFL team, the Tennessee Titans, who spent years on the team, was shot to death today.
It's a twofer! It must have been genius day in the world of Rock and Roll b/c Debbie Harry AND Fred Schneider celebrated their birthday on 7/1! Happy birthday, Fred! You were great in Little Rock. I'll love shack-shimmy in your honor.
