a village for those who see the world as a playground
The silly signs are still up. Looks like they've replaced all the old and dirty ones with a newer, hipper set. I find it disturbing that the sign uses icons from a 1978 arcade game, Space Invaders. Five thousand years of art, culture, and technical advancement, and the best we can do is make signs using 8-bit icons. It seemed appropriate to see a pile of gravel above the sign. That's what we seem to be reducing our whole world to, nothing but piles of lifeless gravel.
