What I learned this week, July 13, 2012


An online story from Neil Gaiman.

I Cthulhu

or What’s A Tentacle-Faced Thing Like Me Doing In A Sunken City Like This (Latitude 47° 9′ S, Longitude 126° 43′ W)?

– Go read this before it’s time to feed the shoggoth.


A while back I went to this huge food truck thing at the derelict shopping mall – Valley View.

It looks like they are going to make a semi permanent thing out of it. Interesting read about the death of a Mall, the economics and timing of urban renewal, and food trucks.

New Valley View owners hope to park food truck test kitchens in vacant food court stalls  


Another update. A while back I visited and wrote about the Dallas Wave and the Santa Fe Trestle Trail. These have not worked out as advertised or hoped.

While Dallas Chokes on the Trinity, the Suburbs Show Us How It’s Done

The Dallas Wave with a DART train going by overhead… and the skyline in the background. (click to enlarge)



Weird Book Room



What’s happening this weekend? This might be fun Ducado Vega is always good – I used to hang out there decades ago when it was the Greenville Avenue Country club.
