Atlanta, Athens

Atlanta is being marketed to various convention organizers as being a good place to hold your event because the city is "distraction free," that is, there aint a lot of shit to do. I kinda believe it. After loitering in front of the Coke museum and in the CNN atrium I felt sated with the City.

Visited Ian McCord in Athens. The big news of the day was that Tight Pockets, their collective practice space, was being condemned.

A golden moment happened today when a gentleman was walking and using his umbrella as a vanity cane when suddenly the tip of the umbrella goes into the crack of a side walk and in the next stride it breaks free of his grip to stand upright on its own as the man walks on. The man pauses a moment realizing that he has lost something. The scene couldn't have been funnier if were in a Chaplain movie and it made me feel that at that moment the Universe was created just for me to witness that.

Have you walked around Little Five Points yet? That's a very cool little area. And you gotta eat at Vortex. It's neato. And their bar has a staggering selection of scotch.
