a little video for your saturday afternoon

this one came in from the old metroblogging tip line – yeah, that’s that little “suggest a story” link off to the right – and so I checked it out and its pretty cool.

turn here is a unique video travel guide where locals film short clips about their favorite places in their hometowns.

atlanta’s page has some pretty cool little vignettes, one on l5p. marietta street, mcclendon avenue and decatur. my favorite has to be the one on little five hosted by local artist jeremy lynes and his two borzois. it’s got everything, including sasparilla the singing gorilla. and robert cohen, iii rapping acapella, though i am still confused as to why they neglected the variety playhouse.

the decatur one is without a doubt the most cheesy but somehow very fitting for decatur and thank god they left out the ruby tuesday’s on the square.

if nothing else they will serve as good anthropological artifacts once the damn yuppies move in and ruin the whole thing. what with their wal-marts and school systems and all*.
