Open Thread: Red and Green

Portland, Maine is a city of brick.  Probably because it got burned down so many times everyone gave up on wood, but --the thing is-- we use brick everywhere.  Thus sidewalks.  And while it may have become fashionable to make tar sidewalks and then, before it dries, press a brick pattern into it (and sometimes paint it) we've still got the old fashioned brick sidewalks.  This leads to things like the roots of trees forcing the sidewalk into an undulating pattern.  It also leads to things like the above.

Oh, also, while an open thread is theoretically for everything, since we had the "everything sucks" open thread just yesterday, it might be good to put "everything sucks" comments there rather than here.


Friday Recommendations!  What have you been reading/writing/listening to/playing/watching lately?  Shamelessly self-promote or boost the signal on something you think we should know about - the weekend’s ahead of us, so give us something new to explore!

And, like on all threads: please remember to use the "post new comment" feature rather than the "reply" feature, even when directly replying to someone else!
