self-explanatory...well, in italian anyway...

There are these...ads(?) in the Metro stations...

...that aren't actually ads for anything...

...they're just serene photos of places far, far away,
180° from where you're at while yr looking at them.

Whose idea is this'? I can't just dismiss them as unsold advertising space placeholders, because i can't believe that these prime ad spots are going unleased, first off. Oh, actually i hope i never discover the story behind it.

Doug Fieger

Last night, my friend since childhood Dave wrote my to tell me that Doug Fieger, lead singer and co-founder of The Knack died. Hmmm. 57 years old. From cancer (unspecified).

I still have the ticket stubs from their concert in 1979 at Masonic Temple in Detroit.

Edit (2010.02.28): Fieger was afflicted with and ultimately died from lung cancer.
