You know things are in Serious Shit Mode in ZombieVille when I am being out-blogged by Paleo, OBS, and mikey. Yeah, busy as shit. robotics startup, projects under increasingly pressure-vessel deadlines, and a looming vacay.
So. Turdwaffle HockSpit is now obviously NOT running for governor, but running for President. Dunno who is blowing smoke up his ass, but Jeb stands a better chance, which is none.
Anyway, Same-sex marriage is GO in Wisco. Even Turdwaffle is admitting that it’s a done deal. If only the judges had been as willing to pass on the whole Voter ID thing.
But no time for actual blogging about these items or others (like I went and saw the Revenge Of The Mekons movie TWICE during the Milwaukee Film Festival. And did I mention that the Milwaukee Film Festival actually draws more patrons, this year, than Sundance? And that the Amazing Randi visited for the showing of his film? Not to mention Joe Angio, who made the Mekons flicktoon. Also not to mention Jon and Sally from the Mekons) so I will just post some pictures of an afternoon’s worth of design time in a urban planning charrette that I was invited to participate in – third time in a row.
This is a redevelopment of a site connecting the urban grid and the residential neighborhoods of a mixed residential neighborhood next to an industrial and commercial corridor, working on revitalization of the manufacturing sites to support job creation and knitting the whole shebang back into the residential areas through a reuse of a rail ROW into a bike/pedestrian Green Artery, and reusing some industrial buildings into a Brewery/Bikery Incubator:
Of course, I included the construction of tilt-up artist loft live/work townhouses that I have been working on developing for an appropriate site – in my SPARE TIME HA HA.
