know your gangs

I forgot all about gangs until I received a shady email about Blood initiations this weekend. While searching for some photos of them, I came across this website, Know Gangs, which could be perceived as an attempt for a gang social networking site. Which would be totally cool. Unfortunately (or fortunately), the site is “a leading training provider for law enforcement, educators and social service workers seeking to enhance their knowledge about gangs, drugs and school violence.” Inspired by my refreshed interest in all things “gang”, I found this nice video on you tube of some bloods doing what they do second best, dance.

Fed up with city living and cold weather? Move to Florida, specifically, Marco Island, Florida. If you have never been to this Island in Southwest Florida, you should go.

Take the visual tour and contact the Erickson Team about purchase.

the weird world of collecting


Apparently flashlights, in particular mag-lites, have a huge following. There is even a Candle Power forum where this picture comes from. Sizzlechest has the entire color spectrum of lights, set-up nice in his basement. Wow! Have a look



Narchitecture is a term that I hope gets adopted by the architecture vocabulary brass. Summing it up is easy. Take late 1970’s and into the 80’s South Florida, add the flux of cocaine (and other drug) money, mix in some ostentatious taste and start building. C-Monster gives a nice little tour with examples on her blog, here.
