We have found the best place in Pensacola. Okay, maybe not the best, but certainly my current favorite. There is an alleyway off of Gregory Street downtown, which is actually the space between the Civic Inn and Pensacola Hardware, across from Subterranean Books. I suspect that it is this last factor that makes this alley so very entertaining. See, Pensacola Hardware is just an older-school hardware store - where people still wait on you, mix paint on demand, and chat about tools. The Civic Inn is where a lot of the roofers who are still here from Texas and Louisiana (and indeed, other, farther-flung locales) in the wake of Ivan are staying. Actually, they're in ALL the hotels, apparently. Anyway, I noticed while job searching back in January that this alleyway, a very convenient cut-through from Subterranean (where I bought this, this and a few issues of this last time I was there) to the parking in front of the Methodist church and the Masonic Hall, is covered in leftist grafitti, and no one has thought to eradicate, clean, or otherwise paint over it. It's great. We went and took a bunch of pictures, and I posted them over on the left, so go look at them.
I would draw special attention to the "Go back to Madison" scrawl, which just warms my heart, the Bob Marley quote, (to which I would draw Brian's special attention) and the wonderful use of stencils. Also, the gold face is pretty cool. Of course, the Christianity piece is close to my heart, but they all have merit. The dumpster is in there because we liked it, and the junction box because C liked the stickers on the side.
