I had a great time at Made in Lowell. For those of you who could not make it, here are some highlights:
Lowell produces more empty liquor bottles than anywhere. Streets are lined with these plentiful little souvenirs. A trail of these bottles can be seen surrounding the Lowell Transitional Living Center.
Lowell City politicians make more behind the scenes deals than anywhere. Sometimes these deals of for money, sometimes they are for future ambitions. Right Bernie?
A delightful pin cushion handmade by Liz and available on Etsy.
Know-it-alls and dumb bloggers. From Emperor Wallace to Ms. Lynne there are no shortage of douchebags telling you what to think. The two combined this week in the Sun to tell me about energy savings. Shut the fuck up already.
Buy Art! Buy Lowell!
What happened to Single Source Marketing?
More to follow on this one.
Awesome city planning:
Let’s build a $25 Million garage and put the RMV in there. Brilliant! Let’s put the post office, the Mass Department of Revenue, and a homeless shelter in there next.
