Ashbourne
In 1820, Frederick Bourne made a village near his tollbooth and named the place after his favourite tree, and himself, i.e. Ash and Bourne.
In 1916, a couple of peeps went and shot all the police fellas, so they got a statue of Jesus, which was no where near the place where it happened.
In 2009, we got a cinema.
In 2012, the screening of Sex and The City 3 in the cinema triggered Armageddon.

Anyway, you're just walking around with these teeth in your vagina and you think it's normal cos like, who do you ask about that shit? Then, one day you go to have sex with someone & they're all "WHY DOES YOUR VAGINA HAVE A TOOTH IN IT?" That'd be damn awkward.

The view from my university library window:



It looks especially pretty on a clear winter day when there's snow on the top of the hills.

Our ability to recycle anyfuckinthing that was previously left for dead.

This is the old Detroit Velodrome in its new incarnation:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/cj1lBfVKpI0" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/cj1lBfVKpI0</a>

The Velodrome was closed down in 1989 or so; a couple of years ago, some guys began cleaning it up, cutting down some trees that were growing along the inner edge of the track, and patching up the potholes as best they could. now there's (underground) racing (minibikes/scooters/bicycles) again at Outer Drive and Mound!

if you needed any more proof...Detroit's advanced state of dissolution has, among other things, made fertile ground for documentaries by indie filmmakers. Here's a link to one; the first guys you'll see is my late friend Blair, who died last July:

there's plenty more at Vimeo; just put "Detroit documentary" in the search box.

Colorado... Big ass mountains. Great for skiing, white-water rafting/kayaking, and camping. 300+ days of sun a year (most after Hawaii).
