Still a vacant lot
Since we last checked in on the progress of Scranton's luxury condominiums in 2006, they've finally managed to tear down the other half of that building in the back of the lot, as well as another to the side! Well, most of the one to the side:
Still, this sucker's gonna be ready to open any day now!

Scranton Times tower
We now conclude "Things that tick Peter Hocking off" week on this blog with an HDR image of downtown Scranton.

This is why I still read anime blogs

Series reviews such as this:
The phrase "Train wreck" comes to mind, but it’s really not accurate. Trains have momentum and direction. This does not. A better analogy would be a pack of feral chihuauas in heat. With grenades taped to their backs. Entertaining and destructive, maybe even cute and tragic at times, but ultimately a waste of explosives and snake food.

Couldn't have said it better if I still went through the trouble it takes to actually watch this stuff.
