Athens has plenty of oddities, and that’s one reason why I like it so much. An example: one of the music scene’s hottest commodities is The 8-Track Gorilla. The news story at the other end of the link goes into detail, but the short of it is he’s a gorilla with a portable 8-Track player hanging around his neck. He plays 8-Tracks and sings along. A simple concept, but the execution is sheer genious. Next, enter the Gorilla’s nemisis… the Athens Spy Cars. Again, the news story at the other end explains it all (yesterday’s Athens Banner-Herald was a good one), but the short of it is there’s a fleet of art cars around town that are painted primarily red, blue, and yellow (that pun’s for you, Al), and have many gadgets mounted on them. If you’re in town, you can’t miss ‘em.
