I like you

Nice pics, and true about your observations about the nature of Birmingham and cities in general.

Hey, now even Memphis has a juice bar on the Main St. Mall. At 3 AM, it becomes a 5 star juice bar. LOL!

OT--DallasTexan, check out the Memphis photo thread below if you haven't already.

I'm still on 56K so I couldn't let everything load, but from what I saw, nice stuff. I know, I'm not supposed to actually compliment you, since apparently our cities are at war or something, but nice thread.

Awesome! That guy in the picture is one of my friends, Starvin' Marvin! He washes cars for people in the loft district for money.

This is a way late response, but there are about 17,000 students total at UAB (around 12,000 undergrad and 5,000 more are grad students).

Ewww, who would want to live in such an old burned out shit hole?? Man, you people are messed up!

For real though, I always love pics of Birmingham and I can just see the potential for a regional leader trying to burst through. Justin I hope your published column helps spark something special for Birmingham. In the meantime, keep posting pics and sharing the unique funk.
