Some of you local history nerds will dig this. It's presented in Concordia's Communication Studies and Journalism building on the Loyola campus in NDG, until next Friday January 27.

And another sign-related story:

E: http://www.musee-m...man-son-neon-sign/
F: http://www.musee-m...eon-de-notman-son/

That sign is currently on display at the McCord as part of the Notman exhibit which runs until Sunday March 26.




It's great to be alive!

Neon signs are soon to be a lost art
As commercial use declines, the price for specialty supplies like transformer/ballasts, cathodes, etc will increase making it harder and more expensive to do. Sad to see neon's soft charm replaced with the harsh glare of LED's panels jacked up to maximum output.

I hope I'm wrong... neon is unique and beautiful.




Just when I thought I was out... they pulled me back in.

It's kind of sad, looking back, to see what used to be there and is now gone.






"You're a catastrophe... On your watch we've lost almost all of our allies, the budget surplus, four airliners, two trade centers, a piece of the Pentagon and the city of New Orleans. Maybe your just not lucky. I'm not saying you don't love this country. I'm just wondering how much worse it could be if you were on the other side. Yes, God does speak to you. And he's saying: Take a hint." B. Maher
