All alone in my thoughts.
It's almost completely gone.
And it seems that I'm the last Brick Standing.
Or at least the only one out in the wild. I have reports of a nicely stacked pallet of nicer bricks than myself sitting off in a corner. Hard to say what fate my brethren will come to, most likely paperweights or perhaps a brick barbecue in the Honorable Erik Anderson's back yard. It's hard to say.
Now that I've had time to rest and reflect, I feel that it is time to start my mission. Beginning today, I'll be using my celebrity status along with modern technology to help bring awareness to other decaying properties around Tacoma.
There are a few obvious items on my list, notably the Alt Heidelberg Brewery, the 11th Street Bridge and quite a few others I've noticed.
However, I would like some help. You see, Bricks aren't terribly mobile and it takes me quite a long time to get anywhere. I would like anyone who knows of a dilapidating property in town to send me a tip at my new electronic mail address. I'll be certain to investigate and report what I find here.
You see, this is quite thrilling! I feel like a reporter for the Ledger!

|Erik Anderson's BBQ... heh. Mmmm... tastes like asbestos with a hint of lead!|
How about that warehouse on the north side of the other side of the 11th street bridge?
I got a photo around here somewhere...

|Mr. Brick you're like the potholepig.com or the Tacoma Gnome!
You really need a face dawg.

here I animated you a face gif. I figure you can have two expressions in real life (front and back). I recommend a happy face and a sad face.
personification is the cat's pajamas dude.

|you should also visit the bank of california building across from convention center to see what life 'could have been' like.|

|I actually do have a face, you know. I've just been facing away from the camera.|

|Yeah, thot would be the place... though admittedly I've never been in it.
That video proves 3 things to me:
1) Apparently Tacoma always = Seattle.. even the ugly stuff. Interesting possibilities.
2) There are indeed aliens in this city besides Adam.
3) My neighbor wasn't kidding when he swore up and down that he saw David Duchoveny in town.
I'm a now unemployed Brick. My old job at the Luzon was unexpectedly ended, and I find myself a 120 year-old looking for work is a very bad economy.
So, I've decided to devote my time to bringing awareness to other dilapidating structures, in hope that they too don't get razed and left as yet more parking.
As one of the Oldest Citizens of Tacoma and as a piece of history itself, I say it is high time we worked harder to save our history.
