The piece offers plenty of entertainment value. Although most landscape shows in these parts focus on mountains and bucolic depictions of wildlife, Amundson notes that "for every elk I see, there are at least fifty Fazoli's." For that reason, his view of the area, largely created with Sharpies, features zones devoted to Starbucks, box stores and "awning" restaurants like Chili's. These items are accompanied by comments he's stumbled upon of late everything from "I poured it out when I heard it was his home brew" to "You'll get a Best of Westword out of that one, easy."
That remains to be seen
