With Keith Reitman's "blue twins" now demolished, I don't plan to wait for landscaping to be completed or for Jeff Skrenes to post demolition video. Time to move forward.
Time to announce my latest What Should Johnny's Next Obsessive Blogging Project Be? contest.
Let's review the glorious history of these "obsessive blogging project" contests, shall we?
1.) The "butt wall" at Merwin Liquors, fixed, click here.
2.) The ugly "butt glass" at Friedman's Shoe store, fixed, click here. (Some hotly dispute whether blogging about this made any difference. The trend speaks for itself)
3.) Keith Reitman's ugly "blue twins," demolished, click here.
Now I need a new obsessive blogging project...
Yes, the "crap hole" building at 3203 Logan (which has alternate addresses on Lowry) looks like a pretty good suspect. In fact, that building was named before as a candidate, but narrowly lost to Reitman's "blue twins" because of the prominent location of the twins and because Reitman's hairy-faced, unkempt little personality is so much fun to blog about and the "crap hole" building just, eh, lacks such a personality associated with it.
Or does it? I'd love some back story, here.
Another good reason to pick 3203 Logan as my next project: it's tottering toward the edge of demolition and a little more public attention will help grease the skids. Sooner or later it will be demolished, of course, if it doesn't simply fall over in a stiff breeze, but if I didn't believe in the power of public discourse I wouldn't do what I do.
But 3203 Logan is not a done deal. There might be a better project out there for a targeted campaign of blogging. And so I await word from readers, from fans, from critics to say where I should focus the attention of this blog as my next obsessive project.
