Potrero Hill Halloween

  (Join the Upland Metaverse) Potrero Hill and Upland Comics has some exciting plans lined up for all you Uplanders this Halloween.  It's a Halloween Property Makeover.  Now we know that the Upland team beat us to the punch, but we have some good news.  This is a makeover than doesn't require any 3D modeling skills. The idea is simple, you pick any property that you own and give it a Halloween makeover.  Your options are fairly limitless, you just need to start with a good front view of the house and decorate it any way you like!  What can you use, well, whatever!  If photoshop is your thing have at it, if you prefer paint that's cool too.  If you want to print it out and draw by hand on top of it, that's also totally cool.  Heck, if you want to book a flight to San Francisco and decorate the actual house while the owners away....well....I mean we can't actually recommend you do that, but we won't bounce your submission.  The only thing you can't do is submi

Neighborhood Spotlight - Little Italy

  After a harrowing flight to NYC, which cost more than several of my properties, I was finally able to sit down with the man...the myth...the legend, that is TDavis.  Now, I am not sure you know, but TDavis has what I might call a bit of an affinity for a certain Manhattan neighborhood.  I wanted to hear all about what has gotten him so excited for this gem of a spot on the island, and couldn't wait to dig in.   So T, can I call you T?  Maybe, Mr. Davis, is that better?  I, man this isn't starting well.  Ok, so reset.  So, TDavis, does your name have any history behind it? Yes. Having a unique first name (at least it was growing up), I have never had to be referred to by first & last name, or first dot last initial until I started working for a large corporation. One of my peers was also named 'Trent', and another had the same last name of 'Davis'. We had to clearly define who was being referred to in our group Skype messaging, and after months of trial and
