looks like some kind of correctional facility of the future. ('the future' according to a b-movie made in 1975 but set in 1992)

The dead amusement park known as Jazzland/Six Flags New Orleans


true story, when I temporary lived out in New Orleans East, on Friday when all of the homework was done (I was in Kindergarten at the time) me and my family would go there. I was 5 at the time, so 1999-2000

I think part of the movie The Courier with Jeffrey Dean Morgan was shot there.

Jeannette Glass Plant
Opened in 1887 and closed in 1983. It's nearly demolished now, but for nearly 30 yrs it has been a huge eyesore and a constant reminder of the town's, long past, glory days.

I understood what you meant lester. They wanted to do something unique and ended up creating an eyesore. Like, for instance, The EMP museum in Seattle. I mean, it would be a great addition to an amusement park, but I'm not so sure about it being in the center of a Metropolitan area.

Southeast Portland has some really hideous paint jobs on their houses.  The whole "keep Portland weird" mantra doesn't really jive with me.


The Convention Center towers are pretty strange-lookin' too.


Wouldn't look too out of place in New Orleans, mainly Bywater area.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
