your last line on that is lovely
The Tribune Tower in Chicago is my favorite building ever. I believe there is a chunk of Mt. Rainier in the wall somewhere if memory serves...
I love the Tribune Tower too! The rocks are completely fascinating (and when will you ever hear that sentence outside of a geology convention).
I'm going to see the Tribune Tower this weekend! Wheeeee.
I was sad when the Sun Times bldg got demolished. I mean, sure, it was a garish ugly big boat of a bldg (literally, it was designed to look like a boat.) But I still loved it.
The Trib Tower and the Wrigley Building make an arresting duo there at the river, no?
If you can, go inside one of the lobbies off Michigan Ave, (I don't remember which.) They have old quotes and headlines inlayed on the marble walls. Not as cool as the rocks outside, but still interesting.
Except Sam Zell is far from poor and no one made him buy those newspapers in the first place.
! I went to Chicago for a school trip in eighth grade, and I remember seeing a chunk of Mt. St. Helens pumice in the wall of some random building, and thinking it was a fun coincidence, because we were about to move here from Lexington, Kentucky....only today, a dozen years later, do I discover that that was the Tribune building. Hell, at the age of 13, I couldn't have cared less about architecture; we were trying to find the new Virgin Megastore.
That includes the Stranger. I'm sure you know this already. How was that last raise?
@10. I'm not gloating, you anonymous—read: cowardly—jackass. I'm commiserating. Back off.
"Back off"? Never. I kinda hit a nerve there with the raise thing, didn't I? Sucks to be you.
Maybe they should rent out spaces to independently wealthy bloggers who think they're journalists.
Ah Trib Tower; I walk by the cathedral of commerce every day. It'll probably become a Chipotle.
@12. The only nerve you hit was the one frayed by cowards sniping behind pseudonyms. Think you're a tough guy? Give me a call: 206-323-7101.
I'll give you a jingle tomorrow around 2, Brandon.
