You know it's not there anymore, right?
Hang around anywhere long enough and you start giving directions that refer to things that aren't there anymore.
This is particularly bad in Los Angeles.
I still give directions that refer to landmarks that shut down 12 years ago.
Which is helpful to those who have a history here.
But more and more we don't.
When I went back to my hometown, I did the "what-used-to-be tour."
And wondered if the kids growing up now will have the same sense of nostalgia about the shit that's there now.
