This post is probably only going to be of interest to me and the relatively small number of people who have lived in, or are familiar with the Washington D.C. suburb of Arlington, Virginia. YouTube user GoRemy has crafted a clever video talking about what a tough neighborhood it is, titled Arlington Rap. Arlington, for those who do not know, is also where the George Mason University School of Law is located (I believe this is the "school of hard knocks" referred to in the video). Since I spent three years there, I spent quite a bit of time, as Remy says, "where the sidewalks are brick1 and the streets are curved". What makes this video really, really funny is that it is pretty much 100% accurate.
So if you are ever in Arlington, you now know that you can go grab a cup of coffee at the Starbucks, or the Starbucks, or the Starbucks, or the Starbucks, or the . . .
1The sidewalks, buildings, free standing walls, and basically all other construction at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville are made from red brick. Everywhere else in Virginia that wants to seem classy pretty much imitates this architectural style.
