what an eerily appropriate headline! how will you take over? one wall, one building, at a time.

Yeah, yeah — but are you going to BUY THE GAME?!

This depresses me. I want the animal mural back.

EV Grieve said...

@cat sitter. Well, there are two mascots in the mural. Does that count?

Ugh.

I would take that "Take Over!" as a redesign invitation for a revolution type image.

Today they seemed to be using the lot for a film shoot. Now that the spaying & neutering is gone, it qualifies as "this could be anywhere."

EV Grieve said...

Good point, Jill. It really does look like anywhere now.

Larry Slade said...

Maybe the whole thing went up for the filming.

EV, the mascots in the mural just don't make up for the lost cats and dogs. I miss my two-story tall Charlotte!
