[Today, I fly off for several days in my hometown, the District of Columbia. While I am away, instead of giving my blog a vacation, I will steal some old posts (all featuring videos) from my archives. Enjoy. Back next Wednesday.]
Chris Michael of the Guardian assembles the 10 worst city tourism spots in history – they go back as far as 1960 (Vancouver). These were great fun, some of them were actually impressive in a macabre modernist way. Atlanta and Miami are a hoot. You will not believe Astana (capital of Khazakstan). Get sexy in Amstermadam! (Actually Riga, but who could resist?) Get sexy (guys) in (gay) Stockholm! Sexual innuendo galore! But the most consistent fun are Michael’s blurbs for each video, describing their sins, which one then waits with bated breath for. Enjoy!
