Won't fall!

Won't fall!
The "Indianapolis Artsgarden" hasn't fallen since it was built in 1995 and it isn't going to fall. If you disagree, you can go tell a roomful of 1990s Indiana construction workers that you do not trust them.

Indeed when I think of Lafayette Louisiana I think of "gravel parking lots in the central business district!", way sooner than I think of cypress swamps or violin music.

The "Revel" casino (say it aloud now: "Revel") in Atlantic City cost $2.4 billion to build. It opened in 2012 and operated for two years and five months.

Almost every conscious person knew that it was foolish to be spending $2.4 billion to build a casino…

Swoopiness ideas for the infrastructure of downtown Battle Creek, Michigan.

Swoopiness ideas for the infrastructure of downtown Battle Creek, Michigan.
All of this was newly-installed at the time of my visit, so that's how come the barrels.

This idea for a new style of whimsical streetlights is part of an effort to assign to all of downtown Battle Creek a visual theme of "curviness" that is expected to…

At the time it was lowered to half-staff (because of you-know-what), had the flag already been shredded to bits by a tropical storm? Or, this being South Carolina, was it later mangled in the night by secessionists high on meth or bathsalts?

And think of…

"All winter long, this stupid Sisyphean chore of placing-and-removing, placing-and-removing these stanchions around this goddamned slippery grate that couldn't have been installed anyplace else but in the middle of a city sidewalk, and couldn't have been…

The building's stupid 1980s architectural geometry is causing my picture's upper right-hand corner to look like it's not ninety degrees. I'm sorry for that but it's not my fault.

This one's called "A Different Corner." It shows the famous 1993 architecture of the might of the Luxor Las Vegas casino hotel.

Is the luxe in Luxor a mere flimsy sham! Stay tuned to news from the world of the gambling industry to find out. Ha ha maybe one of its wiper blades is due to be replaced? Eighteen is old for a building.

A sidewalk lined with beauteous rows of gently flickering candle luminaries. I touched my right hand to my chest as I walked slowly among them and admired them.

The waterfall's not doing what it's supposed to do.
The water's supposed to plunge smoothly into the pool as a single shimmering curtain but every time a little breeze comes up it gets cast flailing into chaos. It splashes upon my pantslegs and into my Male Energy Tea and it makes unbecalming noises and i…
