What parts of the skyline can you see?

This was from my old Inman Park house:
What buildings can you see? Until last week I could see the Bellsouth tower, but it's getting blocked by some of the new apartments at the Mead development which also blocked what little I could see of One Atlantic Center. I can still see Bank of America building and SunTrust Plaza. Until the leaves grow in I can barely see the downtown Marriott, 191 Peachtree, the Westin and Georgia Pacific building. What can you see from your house?

Currently I can only see the Bank of America tower but in the winter I can also see SunTrust Plaza (are they going to rename it soon?), the downtown Marriott and, of course, Ponce City Market.

The New Jersey part of the Queen of Hearts passes

This was a really fun group of songwriters that used to frequent the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville. I first saw The Queen of Hearts at the late-lamented Swallow In The Hollow in Roswell. If you never got a chance to go, imagine a big rustic mountain cabin with pretty damn good BBQ and live music every night. Everybody in the band wrote songs and they would rotate who would lead and everybody else sang great harmony. BethAnne Clayton was the one from New Jersey and she passed 14 January 2020 at 54. Sounds like the rest of the band were able to gather around her in the hospital for a last round of singing together. I can only imagine the emotion that day. Here's how I found out about it: https://www.ellenbritton.com/blog/2020/2/14/in-memory-of-bethanne-clayton The band got together in 1999 and it doesn't look like much of anything made it into the new world of streaming but the two albums I have are: Queen of Hearts (2002) with stand-out songs "Treat Me Right" and "He

Bookstore changes of 2005

To all the bookstores I've loved before Got a real scare at lunch today when I read Cliff Bostock's column in Creative Loafing about Teaspace taking over A Capella Books's storefront .Yikes! That's my neighborhood bookstore, sure there'd still be Charis but they have an extremely eccentric selection and I know there's supposed to be a Barnes & Noble at the Edgewood Retail District but A Capella was a special little place. Tonight I walked in and saw the tell-tale bargain discount shelves throughout the store but thankfully they're just moving. Over next door to the 5 Points Pharmacy on Moreland (down from Criminal Records and Junkman's Daughter). They're just selling the stuff they'd rather not move and plan to be open at the new location by next month. After all that mental anguish, I started thinking about our other lost bookstores. Most recently was Mark Steven's Science Fiction & Mystery Bookstore which closed last year af

No Depression archives online!!

OMG, can't believe they did it! My favorite music magazine in the last 20 years has put (as far as I can tell) every article, review and interview online. Start here: http://archives.nodepression.com Hundreds of good articles, but here's the review where I found out about Blue Mountain (1994), Mike Ireland (1998), Jim Lauderdale (1998) plus many more. Just browse the interviews for dozens of treats. I think I have all of them in hardcopy form, but this is a lot handier.
