    Nashville Bits and Pieces

    New committee members and chairs for the Council.
  2. The wife and I went to the Fair last night around sunset. It was packed out. @markhollin I think everyone was probably staying away from the mid afternoon heat (or was at the Titans game in my case) A few thoughts, as it's the first time I've really been and been paying attention to everything, it is pretty small. But it is hands down one of the most diverse group of people walking around there I have ever seen in an event in Nashville. The Fairgrounds is an absolute s-hole, WOOF. The buildings, the infrastructure, sounds systems, even the actual ground (decayed asphalt and concrete). It's all dilapidated and severely outdated. The update that the new buildings will bring, while yes it will be different and I'm sure there will be a learning curve, it's going to be, conservatively, 1000% better. I can't see the State Fair renewing their contract for the Fairgrounds, they could put on a better State Fair in the parking lots around the Titans stadium. I think a more regional fair will end up taking it's place as it has to be law. Which will be interesting I'm sure there are companies that do smaller fairs that will be interested in the Fairgrounds once there are new facilities. We did see a hell of a sunset, while waiting for the pig race, which is a sentence I've never typed before, haha.

    I bird’ed all over Pie Town this afternoon. Did anyone feel a disturbance in the force?

    I have to think they carried it down there, that's pretty damn far for a battery to last haha.

    I can't find it but I swear I've read that "Nashville" has to be in the team name by agreement between NSH and the city. I could be wrong though. Addition: Agreed 100%, a soccer specific stadium puts people so much closer to the sidelines/action and makes it so much better for the attendees.

    And thinking about it now, isn't there some kind of data sharing agreement with the city??

    Vancouver Whitecaps is cool, Philadelphia Union, New England Revolution is nice. Portland Timbers. LA Galaxy. More traditional names for a sports team I guess. I really like Union, Nashville Union doesn't sound have quite the same ring to it though.

    Just drove on 8th down by ML Rose, Sutler, tons of Limes down there. I wonder how all that works out, it would be super interesting to see an info graphic of the ebb and flow of them moving around the city over a weeks timeframe.

    "By removing the aisle from the inside of a standard city bus, we have created a system that enables all riders to enjoy public transportation without the cramped and uncomfortable problems and replaced it with the bliss of private space and bigger seats!" So now when it's raining and one person gets off, everyone in the compartment will get wet. There are some interesting ideas in there for cargo carrying but I don't know why this would be better for than a regular bus.

    It’s just a park at the Fairgrounds. That’s where the name comes from I think. Isn’t the fair usually on the other side closet to Nolensville.

    Repurposed/revitalized historical buildings in Nashville

    I'm not sure it's ever made anything? The entire time I've lived around the corner, I've seen people working on it a total of 5 times maybe.

    Hopefully the stadium will give the city the desire to care about it finally. Colby Sledge has tried regularly but it’s apparently wrapped up in tons bureaucracy.
