Rebuilding Place in the Urban Space

"A community’s physical form, rather than its land uses, is its most intrinsic and enduring characteristic." [Katz, EPA] This blog focuses on place and placemaking and all that makes it work--historic preservation, urban design, transportation, asset-based community development, arts & cultural development, commercial district revitalization, tourism & destination development, and quality of life advocacy--along with doses of civic engagement and good governance watchdogging.

Tomorrow (April 21st) is National Record Store Day

And to celebrate it locally, look to the Washington City Paper Arts Desk blog for advice, in "What D.C. Shops are Doing for Record Store Day."

To celebrate it other than in Washington DC, check out the National Record Day website.

Back in the day, the old University Cellar, business cooperative book store at the University of Michigan, used to sell "cutouts," basically, remaindered records (just like you can buy "remaindered" books cheaper because they have been supplanted by new editions, didn't sell, etc.). Cutouts had a little notch in one corner which denoted that they were cheaper.

This song, "London Girls," opens the album "Pure Mania" by The Vibrators, which I bought sometime during my freshman or sophomore years in college. And just hearing that song reminded me of this song too, "Baby, Baby."

Ah, albums.
