Fuck Collier Ridge Apartments.
At least three times this summer the pool has been locked on weekends when it was sunny and hot outside.
I’ve had to deal with people coming in and out of our apartment since we moved in to do renovations with very little prior notice, if any, most times.
The gate hasn’t worked for half the time I’ve lived here. So much for a safe gated community.
And now the gym is closed and locked for no fucking reason.
Oh, and our patio has smelled like urine since we moved in, the office people are jerks, and they never give notice of anything, like replacing all of the mailboxes and requiring everyone to come get new keys, but make their own copy if more than one person lives in the apartment.
This is a nice apartment, nice location, and fairly affordable, but I’m tired of dealing with random bullshit. Amenities are included in the rent I pay. Not random access to a pool and gym. Randomly turning the gate on and off.
And how are you going to tell me that you have to inspect the renovations in all the apartments, and they have to get into the bedrooms to look, even if I’m still sleeping. Fuck that.
Embrace was a 72 ft wooden, cathedral-like sculpture of two human figures, “in celebration of all our relationships”. The site-specific artwork was created by the Pier Group for Burning Man 2014.
It was the largest project to date for the Pier Group, which gained acclaim for its previous Burning Man installations The Pier, Pier 2, and the Ichthyosaur Puppet Project. Crews began construction on Embrace in October 2013 at the Generator community art space in Reno, and in studios in Vancouver and Portland.
During this year’s festival the massive wooden sculpture was set aflame and Trey Ratcliff was on hand to capture the incredible moment. Below you can see what the interactive sculpture looked like before it was burned.
I know many people are confused and irritated about all of the stuff on Tumblr today regarding “internet slowlanes” and net neutrality. What is it? Why do I have to look at that spinning circle of death?
Above is probably the best breakdown of the issue I’ve seen.
Take a second and watch. Take another second and contact your representatives. This shit is very real and very scary.
Knowledge is power.
The internet is power.
Don’t let them take your power away.
