Comping Up On Urban Jacksonville Weekly

On March 15th we’ll have Josh Jubinsky in the studio to talk about the Zine program at the Jacksonville Public Library. Josh, or Mr. Josh, works in the children’s at the downtown branch and was instrumental in creation one of the largest public zine collections in the United States.

Zine: A zine (an abbreviation of the word fanzine, or magazine; pronounced /?zi?n/ “zeen”) is most commonly a small circulation publication of original or appropriated texts and images. More broadly, the term encompasses any self-published work of minority interest usually reproduced via photocopier on a variety of colored paper stock.

Greg and Jason from Content Design Group will be in studio on Monday January 11th to talk about the Metro Jacksonville article Is Springfield Ready for a Car Wash? and the role they played in the architecture of the revised plans:

Can a car wash be a part of an urban revitalization plan? After heated opposition and misinformation dominating discussion about the 4th & Main project, owner Silas Jones has modified development plans to better integrate the project within the community. Can common ground be found that will finally lead to project approval and new life along the Main Street corridor?

All’s Well That’s Pineapple: Dwayne and T.K. Episode 7 and How To Attack West 4th Street

Dwayne and T.K. Episode #7 - All's Well That's Pineapple

Read all 6 Dwayne and T.K. episodes. Hey it’s Friday take a break! Thanks to Big Baby Birdie for his hard work in this series. Find more Haiku Birdie on his site: http://www.thehaikulife.com.

This week marks a new Zombie Bikes, the beginning of the end for the Riverside Arts Market, continued courthouse blunders and a decade of Money Hungry Jungle.

And though it didn’t happen this week I sympathize with JaxScene’s boot troubles downtown. Bad User Experience. While the entire city may be falling into a state of apathy, hate and pro football dissatisfaction, we keep it real at Urban Jacksonville and bring the love all day, err day.

How To Attack West 4th Street

How To Attack West 4th Street

This is a special section for those Springfield residents required to enter 4th Street from Main. Everyone in the neighborhood knows 4th between Main and Laura is an old cobblestone street with terrible bumps and bruises. You’ll spill your coffee if you take the wrong line, so follow this recommendation and you’ll hit the cleanest line on the street.

When you turn left on 4th from Main, stay as far left as you can. This will help you avoid the big pot hole right at the intersection. Continue to drive as close to the curb as possible all the way to Laura Street for a smooth ride.

Urban Jacksonville Weekly on Monday

Have a good weekend everyone and get pumped for Urban Jacksonville Weekly on Monday morning. We’re having Jon Bosworth on the show to talk about the Conmoto Music Festival November 20th-21st in Downtown Jacksonville. Check out all the bands, good local music festival.

Jaguars on Urban Jacksonville and New Contributor Gil Samson

We started a new column last week on the Jaguars with new contributor and old friend Gil Samson. This column has two stated goals:

  1. Increase awareness and visibility of Jacksonville’s NFL franchise in an attempt to keep the team, an important economic development and branding opportunity for the city, here as long as possible
  2. Get linked in the Reading the Coverage column of Paul Kuharsky’s AFC South blog on ESPN.

Please let Gil and I know what you think about the new column. We would love your feedback. Here are linkes to GIl’s first two posts:

Defense is the Key to Any Successful Hunt
Hey Jaguars Fans: This is Rebuilding!
