Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull. Perhaps one of the most beautifully-ugly people ever to grace a concert stage. You'll see echoes of him in Rex (Bad Angels) Jasper (Black Wolf) and Coco. (Voodoo You Love?) He's magic, mayhem and bawdy lust.

The magical town of Arcada isn't based on any specific place, but more of a concept: that small town somewhere in the USA. Everything is normal, friendly and a bit more peaceful. Thus, the town is nicknamed, "Normalville, USA." I visualize a town square with a band stand, clock tower, grass and flowers. In the winter, its decorated with fairy lights and frosted with snow. www.virtualalbuqu...

Kowloon Walled City was a largely ungoverned Chinese settlement in Kowloon, Hong Kong, comprising of 350 interconnected high-rise buildings where 33,000 residents lived within a plot measuring just 210 meter by 120 meter. Originally a Chinese military fort, the Walled City became an enclave after the New Territories were leased to Britain in 1898. it was thought to be the most densely populated place on earth- It can't have been much fun to live there....demolished now
The Kowloon Walled City just outside Hong Kong, China. It was occupied by Japan during World War II and subsequently taken over by squatters after Japan’s surrender. Neither Britain nor China wanted responsibility for it, so it became its own lawless city.Brothels, casinos, opium dens, cocaine parlors, food courts serving dog meat and secret factories ran unmolested by authorities. It was finally torn down in 1993 after a mutual decision was made by British and Chinese authorities.

Kowloon Walled City, a dense, ungoverned settlement in Hong Kong which spanned 6 acres and held 30,000 residents at its prime. It was essentially a single mega-structure that became a hub for gambling, opium, and prostitution. The city was demolished and turned into a park in 1995.
