Williams St. keeps the rest of the Turner empire at a safe distance. That's Techwood, across lanes and lanes of busy highway
The stick that built Ted Turner's empire. Channel 17, the former WTCG, which you know as Superstation TBS, still broadcasts from this tower near Williams St., but now it's WPCH-TV (thanks Andy Rose)
Along with the twin Biltmore towers, the Channel 17 tower forms a kind of broadcast Golgotha in downtown Atlanta, overlooking Williams St. and a very prominent strip club
We think a movie was shooting at the building obscured by all the production trucks here on Peachtree
Mike Lazzo posing next to an artist's rendering of CNN's Omni-tastic home, prominently displayed in the stairwell (along with a lot of other cheesy art -- apparently no one takes the elevator at Wms. St.)
From the Mike Lazzo collection of folk art. He owns several RARE VISIONS AND ROADSIDE REVELATIONS discs
Several pieces of Adult Swim promotional art (including a series inspired by the GUN SHOW outdoor signs) adorn the wall outside the AS executives' crappy offices, er, "suites"
Lazzo apparently knows a lot of painters 'n' such in the Atlanta area, and they're routinely brought in to adorn the AS walls
Where the table reads for SPACE GHOST COAST TO COAST took place. Now it's a lounge/storage space
Some of you may remember the unfortunate promotional event of which this is a souvenir
The crowd (by AS standards; only about 60 people total work here) is gathered around the FAMILY GUY pinball machine
Evidence of a FAMILY GUY pinball craze: the bracket from the recent tournament. Tim DeClaire, my guide on this tour, said he was amazed one morning around 7:30 am when he heard the machine being played; "people are crazy about it"
Pretty cool wall art just outside Matt and Dave's (ATHF) office
Kind of reminds me of the poster I found inside my copy of Devo's NEW TRADITIONALISTS record in the 1980s. More wall art spotted at Adult Swim
