After noticing how many of the storefronts were empty along the Woodward corridor earlier this week and the soon coming John Varvatos store, I wondered what stores would be ideal to fill up the CBD and generate a solid shopping experience? No knock to Varvatos or Moosejaw, just seems like they wouldn't be enough to make me drive down on a lazy weekend.

It appears, according to Curbed, that the abandoned DPS book repository has seen some activiety recently in the form of freshly boarded up windows, which begs the question, what is Matty up to? Could it be the Mouron family finally sees interest in the area with the Tiger Stadium site finally on deck for redevelopment? Maybe.

I can't quite figure this guy out. He cleans up MCS (finally) and starts to dump (minimal) amounts of cash into it. We get teased with some windows being fitted into the hulking structure and some accent lighting at night. A ploy to the city to support his doomed bridge project? Probably. But why bother with the book repository now? I've never quite understood why the Mouron family doesn'y actively market the buildings, especially with the surge of activiety in Corktown.

The area of Roosevelt Park, with Slow's and other nearby establishments, the Tiger Stadium development, Hopcat, and a renewed MCS and rehabbed book repository, could make that area as lively as Campus Martius is downtown.

New Years Revelation!: What do other forum posters think of you. http://www.detroityes.com/mb/showthread.php?19581-New-Years-Revelation!-What-do-other-forum-posters-think-of-you&goto=newpost Fri, 19 Dec 2014 02:06:07 GMT
In the spirit of those who-I guess-become self-absorbed/self-conscious right before making New Year's resolutions, I propose an odd and creative exercise (and it'll be interesting to see who participates and who doesn't). Here are the rules: each forum member can post only one paragraph post that embodies and epitomizes the full gamut critique of how they may feel other members see them in an ugly light. No one is allowed to follow up to other's posts with "Yeah I can see that" or "don't forget this".
Here I'll start it off: "What's with that G-DDT homeless dirtbag jag-off always pining for the Clinton days of techno and Melvins rock? He writes hideously huge highly digressive posts that are peppered with bean-counting shopping lists. He's negatively seditious one minute and pontificating like a Dominican priest the next. He always sites books (Bor-ring as fossilized sh*t!), but won't easy-link anyone to an outside site. When did this guy join? He hasn't even been on that long, and he already leaves a sour taste in everyone's mouth."
See. An exercise in humble self-deprication. That easy.
One paragraph. One post. Only you.
Anyone brave? Anyone game?

Currently at 17 minutes and change.

Stolen-looking car down the block, has been there all day. Figured I'd call and check at least if its been reported stolen.

Last time this happened (with a much more obviously stolen car) I got up to about 25 minutes -- I think I had an entire shopping trip at Brooks in there -- before giving up.

So, what's a reasonable amount of time? I'm running out of idle tasks to pass the time.

UAW wages continue to decline via 2 Tier wage system and 2015 negotiations with Big 3 probably won't change the profit margins.
Car companies prefer to pay the bonuses,
since they are directly linked to sales performance

Unions are on their way out, pendulum has swung the other way, people just want to work without the politics of union presence

Automotive manufacturing in Mexico skirts the entire issue and the Big 3 laugh at the UAW
--- as do the other auto manufacturing corps.
