To all the formerly cool cities from Portland to Austin to NYC: You've all become as staid and boring as the suburbs you desperately tried to escape. Not only that, but your boring ethos has infested all the formerly cool neighborhoods in otherwise lame cities across the country. I'm thinking abandoned strip malls are going to be the next artist colonies. Hey! Let's turn that rundown Arby's into a gastropub! Ooohhh...this old Kmart would be a great mixed-use, live-work space! I'll bet we can have a nice suburban farm on this foreclosed lot! Who wants to live in the city, anyway? The city is so boring, expensive, and LAME!!!
