Cool post. I love comparing subway lines too. They all have their own weirdly unique smells too.

I think the Federal government subsidizes DC's subway, so that's why it is cleaner and more elegant in some ways.

I love the retro-future vibe in DC too.

Thanks, Chris!


Citation: failure to contact fellow musician in DC during stay. Penalty: 2 points subtracted from indie rock cred status meter (I know it's unfair, but I don't make the rules). Points will be restored to writer/musician's status upon completion of one the following; one DC visit w/i 6 months of citation where DC musician is contacted, or new batch of tunes from DC@S w/i 12 months. Failure to comply will result in $150 fine/donation, free blogging tips and complimentary lunch to any DC musician NYC writer knows or forfeited to ODC! winter funds. -DC office of plans'n'things

ps-Metro payment unduly complicated. Cleanliness perhaps due to no drink/food rule?

Sorry, Jeff -- I was working, which basically gave me no time for anything fun! :( Will totally keep you in the loop going forward though!


Sounds good. I'll see if I can twist a few arms at the DC office of plans'n'things to lessen the penalty. Cheers.

The Metropolis Case

'It’s to the credit of Matthew Gallaway’s enchanting, often funny first novel that it doesn’t require a corresponding degree of obsession from readers, but may leave them similarly transported: the book is so well written — there’s hardly a lazy sentence here — and filled with such memorable lead and supporting players that it quickly absorbs you into its worlds.'
