Highland Park = Raccoon City?

Check out these pics from an abandoned municipal building in Highland Park Michigan. This is eerily similar to the Raccoon City police station in "Resident Evil 2". I spent many a night jumping out of my skin playing this game, and it seems awfully weird that there are firearms, ammunition, and crime scene photos still laying around, just like the game, where you are constantly on the search for ammo, and you need to examine the environment for clues to continue the game.

Gameplay from Resident Evil 2, go to about 15:00 for the police station...

The entire northwest Ohio region (Toledo and Lucas county) has
one of the highest unemployment rates in the state. I've been up here for the past two weeks, and almost every day there is an announcement of new layoffs.

I don't like the idea of an auto bailout, but if it doesn't happen, it's curtains for Toledo.

By the way, "Joe" the plumber worked on my mom's toilet. Then it broke two weeks later. Also, he's unemployed.

MST3K boys reminisce...

God, I miss that show. I distinctly remember every Thanksgiving, when Comedy Central would run a MST3K marathon. Here's a link to an interview with Joel Hodgson, Trace Beaulieu, and Jim Mallon, who were the originators of MST3K.

It doesn't sound like they're going to start another series, but they have this project, Cinematic Titanic, where you can download and burn DVDs.
