(no subject)

The CD jewel case has to be one of the worst designs ever. They are bulky and heavy, they break easily, and if you drop one on the floor the disc often pops out and rolls across the floor. I have a tower case that holds a couple of hundred CDs, and have another 30 or 40 CDs stacked atop it, which leads to accidents like the one I just had when I pulled a CD out of the stack and 6 or 8 others landed on the floor.

I'd like to get one of these cases, and would order one in a heartbeat except I can't think where I would put it. Hmmm...

The pile of rubble in the foreground used to be the YMCA. The building has been empty for years; a new Y was built not far away, in the Eau Claire district. A few weeks ago I walked past here, wondering what they would ultimately do with this building. Now I know!
