Re: Educate everyone on a good website...

While we are on the topic of tripadvisor, I wanted to stay at "Grandpa Grunt's" on a recent trip to Jay Peak, VT, but my wife vetoed the idea. It's the kind of place you either love or hate, there is no middle ground:

Re: Educate everyone on a good website...

Ok, so I've been collecting architecture/design/urbanism tumblrs. If anyone could add any that would be awesome. Finding lots of Modern stuff, which is great, but would love to find more focusing on pre-war buildings, restoration thereof and maybe a few more focused on urbanism.
The following list hasn't been particularly well screened, but most of what of seen from them has been at least somewhat interesting and safe for work, but it is tumblr...

High score? Mine's 468 so far.

It's so stressful because you have to connect the stations really quickly when they pop up and there's a limited number of tunnels! Loving this!

I love this one. I've used it many times. Free and easy to pick up. Especially fun for trying to "fix" some of the extra-constrained sections of street we have.

Re: Educate everyone on a good website...

I haven't actually played with it yet... but I hate you.


THIS is why I'm a barback and don't have a "real job". No one ask me at the next somethingorother hearing, I blame Data.
