The Geography Of Nowhere.

By James Howard Kunstler.

Here's a podcast with him, download that, and skip to exactly 25 minutes in.


Yeah, this is about 3 years old now, and I first stumbled onto this looking for podcasts for Sansa almost a year ago now.

Anyhoo, at the time, it had me almost cheering, the revelation that cities making me gloomy wasn't just me, it really is the cities that suck, and that there's a reason why they suck.

I immediately thought of the whole fucking Portland Mall area.

Especially the outside bit, with the trees all in the fucking way as a cynical affectation.
Exactly what Kunstler rags on.

Preach it, brother.


Ooo, here's a TED talk with him.
