It’s like they want to be haunted
The first thing I thought was, new stop on the haunted tour. Prolly need some sensitivity training, but knowing what I want to do with my body on a daily basis, I find it difficult to consider this sanctimoniously.

Seriously, I'm low key jealous that he'll probably still be in the bldg when they implode it. I mean I'm not willing to die for it, but if you're gonna have to go why settle for a wooden box?

It's epic really. Grand kids would be legends telling the story. Most people go to the cemetery, but no granddad had to make them blow him up with the Hard Rock.

Now every year we got the quarter, second line a bit and then go see a concert. Sometimes you can actually see him push the wah wah pedal and try to bang head.

This makes perfect sense to me

Oh man. I had just kind of stopped following this story. I cut across that corner twice a day and you just get to where you don’t notice it anymore. I heard about the remains but thought it was just a little bit visible or whatever. Today I glanced up there and my stomach turned a bit. I’ve seen people die a few times and that sort of thing doesn’t bother me much. But this did. I think because his family is helpless in the situation. It’s horrible.

3+ months later and there’s still a corpse dangling above the street. Nice.

That's some third world shirt right there.
when you see it you can see that short of quicker demolition, there isn’t much they can do. He was in the very corner where the very first video caught it collapsing. Everything right there is sloping down to the ground looking like it’s defying gravity. And if he wasnt firmly in between two concrete layers he would have gone all the way to ground off the ledge. His knees are bent over the edge as if he was sitting on the ledge when it happened. Except there wasn’t a ledge there before the colapse. maybe a huge tarp to wrap that whole corner would help but I don’t know how they even got him covered the first time to be honest. And they had to do that when the perimeter was much larger or everyone would have seen them doing it.

Is anyone even still eating in the Hard Rock restaurant? I would have a hard time giving them any money at any establishment after this.
I have eaten at one only twice and that's because I was with a group of people from Ohio and Michigan who think a great meal contains buns and/or mashed potatoes and brown gravy...

move not eaten at one in probably 20 years. I ate there twice and just remember it sucking. So not going there was already easy for me.
