I was incredibly excited to listen to Hawkdogg's "Crank Dat Pecan" - that is, until I heard the first verse and noted that he pronounces puh-cawn, "pee-CAN"!!! UGH..... my ears are bleeding.
Those of you who are vegetarian/vegan who are attempting to convert others aren't helping your cause at all. Convincing a full blown meat eater to "Go vegan!" is not likely to work. It's on par with telling a very spiritual religious person "God doesn't exist!" and expecting them to jump on board with you...
Instead of trying to tell people to be like you, just live by example and quit being annoying and preachy. Cook good vegan/veggie food and share it with your friends and family. Don't belittle them for eating what they want because you wouldn't want to be treated that way if the tables were turned.
Vegetarian, vegan, omnivore or whatevs: we should all read labels carefully when we're at the grocery store. I recently discovered that there is cellulose gum (undigestible wood pulp) used as a binder/extender in Morningstar Farms Chik Patties and Nuggets. It served as a reminder to me that just because something is "vegetarian" does not mean it is automatically better for your health or the environment...
Anyone here who is asking "what about the suburbs?!" clearly needs to do a little more research. MARTA has tried to expand outside of the perimeter for YEARS, but the suburban counties will have no part of it. Instead of advocating for rail to whatever town OTP you live in here, your time would be much better spent writing your local state representatives and county commissioners. (They are, more than likely, AGAINST the expansion of mass transit to your area and one of the factors preventing MARTA's progression).
There is a sign just off of the Boulevard/Memorial exit advertising 20 acres behind the new ENSO development as being officially "for sale". I am pretty certain that La Farge owns that property. Maybe they are already poising themselves for a move?
I'd like to see more street art around town that doesn't revolve around text alone. Stuff like Mr. Fangs that is graphic, has humor, and actually says something about our city and where we live.
I could care less about those who just want to scrawl their lame ass nickname on every surface possible around town. That is just boring narcissistic bullshit. If you are going to throw up tags everywhere you go, at least TRY to make them interesting and creative!
urenamehere: Like you've never said something mean about another person before and regretted it. Quit being such a judgemental douche.
"The Beltline will be a phenomenal trail system, but it is not a realistic or intelligent solution for transit. It doesn't get people from where they live to where they work."
This statement may apply to you, but it does not apply to everyone - I both live and work along the proposed Beltline route and I would love to see transit become a reality.
