Our Gas Got Soul!!!!

Cleveland is the city.

Chances are, some of you have seen the (semi) viral hit "HASTILY MADE CLEVELAND TOURISM VIDEO" and its follow-up "Hastily Made Cleveland Tourism Video: 2nd Attempt"

If not, here's a primer.

Brand Flakes for Breakfast has, in my humble, a perfect take on this: here. (via Adrants)

So it seems that somebody at Positively Cleveland, our Visitors and Tourism Circlejerk, thought it'd be a good idea to capitalize on the aforementioned YouTube hits, and counter them with a fully sanctioned contest. It launched last week.

See here: witness poop.

7/14/44 - 11/20/08

If any of my 2 or 3 regular visitors happen to pass by and wonder, "what the f*ck is up with Franklin,"

Pops passed away about a month ago. (still doesn't quite fully explain the hiatus before that, but... whatever.)
Obviously not in the blogging mood these days.

But I'll be back in effect mode soon.
Until then, I'll close with one of his favorites.

Barackin' The Q

CLEVELAND — NBA superstar LeBron James and Grammy-winning recording artist Jay-Z want people to get out early to vote for Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama.

James and Jay-Z will host a rally Wednesday at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland which will include a free concert by the hip-hop star.

James attended a Cleveland rally earlier this month to encourage people to vote for Obama. He's also contributed $20,000 to a committee supporting the presidential nominee.
Looks like Franklin will be ducking out of the office tomorrow to pick up a ticket.
