Newsweek named Grand Rapids, Michigan “A Dying City.” Rachel Maddow’s Blog shared the city’s response. Click here. It’s ten minutes long, and I don’t particularly care for the version of the song, but I love their energy! This is not a moribund city.
Speaking of moribund, or at least delightfully morbid: Unfilmable.com reports that someone is doing an independent film of three HP Lovecraft short stories. They are calling it Arkham Sanitarium. They began filming Friday, May 13, 2011. The Rapture was slated for 5/21. The film will be released in October, 2011. New date for the Rapture is October, 2011. Coincidence?
