chinatown bus, but it only goes to travel plaza outside town. cab it from there

amon (eman), Tuesday, 25 October 2005 00:52 (fourteen years ago) link

My dad once lived in the hotel behind the Travel Plaza. Peter Pan is only like $15 more and reliable. If it is raining you have to stand outside for Chinatown. Cool arcade games at the TP.

Haha, I love the I Heard It Through the Grapevine one, "How about some fries, with that shake?" We should go meet him. Are you dressing up for Halloween? I'm going to be Mary Hartman from Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman. My friends band is playing at the Ottobar on Sunday but that seems to be all that is going on.

Do i want to go to Washington DC and or Baltimore? they're only an hour or two apart, right?

i have a week off between jobs and flights are cheap. my best friend from LA would go w/me and we have a college friend that lives there.

jaxon (jaxon), Thursday, 27 October 2005 05:29 (fourteen years ago) link

less than an hour apart!

i tend to observe only holidays that give days off work. and i have to m o v e

d.c. -> baltimore is one hour by MARC train. can't recall if it runs on weekends but its only $7. by car, the same, but traffic permitting.

amon (eman), Thursday, 27 October 2005 23:18 (fourteen years ago) link

so should i go? would it be a worthwhile trip?

i'm thinking high black population = records!

jaxon (jaxon), Thursday, 27 October 2005 23:55 (fourteen years ago) link

high black population = records!

but d.c. proves this wrong!

amon (eman), Friday, 28 October 2005 00:13 (fourteen years ago) link

I like both. Spend one night here, one night there. I have found much better records in the trash in Baltimore than any record store in DC.

barf bag special (mistymartinez), Sunday, 30 October 2005 16:06 (fourteen years ago) link

For record shopping, go to the Sound Garden in Fells Point, Baltimore, there are some other good stores around there too. DC doesn't really have good record stores any more. Go to Sonar, maybe? The Ottobar?

I like DC, it is much more fancy and uptight and expensive though.

There's a potter's field close to the Travel Plaza! Travel Plaza counts as most disturbing "destination" in Baltimore area, imo. (, Monday, 31 October 2005 01:50 (fourteen years ago) link

Somehow I don't feel safer.

grizzled bag lady at lexington market approached me for a cigarette this evening. i got as far as "i don't smo-" before she screamed "get the hell outta here!" about a foot away from my ear. and then proceeded with a torrent of abuse at the top of her lungs that was still going when i was a block and a half away c|:0{

amon (eman), Wednesday, 16 November 2005 02:56 (fourteen years ago) link

The Ottobar seemed like a nice place, the band that played there the night I was there was kinda boring though.

i want to go back with someone (preferably a longhair scummy hippy-type or homeless dude) and have them jump the fence so you can get a better sense of the scale.

amon (eman), Monday, 21 November 2005 03:49 (fourteen years ago) link

Baltimore is perplexing.

walter kranz (walterkranz), Monday, 21 November 2005 06:49 (fourteen years ago) link

Maryland has the best flag though.

Hahaha, I can't believe you took those pictures (and I'm glad you did).

barf bag special (mistymartinez), Monday, 21 November 2005 07:34 (fourteen years ago) link

We had one of those in Lexington -- not sure if it's still there. It was when I was 8.

Haaaaaaaaa! I pass 60s and 70s on the way to Tarantula Hill.

barf bag special (mistymartinez), Tuesday, 22 November 2005 11:00 (fourteen years ago) link

did it open in the 80s ?

towson borders went out of business? fuck a barnes & noble

amon (eman), Wednesday, 23 November 2005 01:48 (fourteen years ago) link

Maybe it opened in the 50s and they played music by people making music the way they thought it would sound in the future!

I liked the amount of used book stores in Long Beach, CA. I feel like B-more lacks.

jaxon (jaxon), Friday, 2 December 2005 06:42 (fourteen years ago) link

Oh, Baltimore!
Have you forgotten who you are?
You're the place of Babe Ruth, Brooks Robinson and Jim Palmer.
You're Johnny Unitas, Sugar Ray Leonard and Reggie Jackson.
You're Esskay Hot Dogs, Berger Cookies and Phillips Crabcakes.
You're The Star-Spangled Banner.
You're the Raven, never flitting, still sitting.
You're Francis Scott Key and Edgar Allen Poe.
You're Blue-crabs, Bertha's Mussels and Natty-Boh!
You're Cab Calloway, Billie Holiday and Mama Cass.
You're Frank Zappa, David Byrne and John Waters.
You're Fort McHenry, Camden Yards and the USS Constellation.
You're The National Aquarium, Penn Station and Harborplace.
You're Johns Hopkins, Loyola and Md Institute of Art.
You're Mt. Washington, Federal Hill and Fell's Point.
You're The Owl, The Hippo and The Cat's Eye.
You're as sweet as Domino Sugar and you're McCormick Spice.
Don't ever forget, you're everything nice.
Once upon a midnight dreary, Nevermore!
You're The Pride of Baltimore.
