Mythic Detroit

Fun fact: The Justice League of America once went through such a rough patch that they had to move to Detroit. I guess Aquaman knew a guy who knew a guy, or something.

This, and other Detroit myths and legends, found on Mythic Detroit (via StrangeMaps).

Also, James Brown extended mixes are awesome:



When I was driving to Michigan on New Years Eve there was a radio show on KDHX (called "Hip City") that played two straight hours of nothing but JB. It made me want to shake my ass all the way through Missouri and Central Illinois (except the station died as soon as I got to Effingham, which, coincidentally might be the least ass-shakable place in the Midwest).

I like the term, "ass-shakable."

I like the name Effingham, and wonder if the radio and ass-shaking dead zone gave it that name.

Ditto on the Effingham theory.
