    City to Pitch City Hall Renovation to TV

    I wish this was a joke:

    PLATTSBURGH — Plattsburgh Mayor James Calnon is looking to make City Hall a national television star.

    Programs that feature remodeling or redesign projects such as “The Property Brothers,” “This Old House” and “The Rehab Addict” will be receiving a letter and short video inviting them to remake the edifice.

    “Why not try it? It’s like buying a lottery ticket; you can’t win unless you try,” he said.

    “All it will take is some postage and an hour or so of my time, so why not see if we can drum up some interest?”

    Instead, it is like the worst parody of North Country rubes and bumpkins.

    There are so many more things that I wish our Mayor would address, but this is the thing he makes a big to do over. Really?

    The mayor could hire a full or part time grant writer to facilitate grant money to fix the piss poor roads and infrastructure in the city, but it wouldn’t get him as much cheap press. What a shame.

    Love this town

    Yeah but I mean, if the Property Brothers come to Plattsburgh I’d be down.

    I just really like that the headline says he’s “proposing a makeover” for city hall which initially makes you think “oh they might be renovating city hall” but what he’s really doing is writing to a reality show so he can MAYBE get a new office and get on television.

    You know what reality show I keep saying I would like to write to is Kitchen Nightmares because with the stories I’ve heard I’m pretty sure they could make an entire fucking season out of some of the restaurants in this town.

    Or maybe we can start our own reality show about parking lots and Subway Restaurants where we go buy food from a different Subway every day and then we go to a giant vacant lot and kill ourselves

    I can dig it.


  5. "Whatever you now find weird, ugly, uncomfortable and nasty about a new medium will surely become its signature. CD distortion, the jitteriness of digital video, the crap sound of 8-bit - all of these will be cherished and emulated as soon as they can be avoided. It’s the sound of failure: so much modern art is the sound of things going out of control, of a medium pushing to its limits and breaking apart. The distorted guitar sound is the sound of something too loud for the medium supposed to carry it. The blues singer with the cracked voice is the sound of an emotional cry too powerful for the throat that releases it. The excitement of grainy film, of bleached-out black and white, is the excitement of witnessing events too momentous for the medium assigned to record them."

    I loved the painted covers of Marvel UK’s short-lived attempt at a black-and-white monthly magazine featuring their TV star, The Hulk.
