Keep Tucson Shitty is like Keep Boulder Weird.. I hate seeing those bumper stickers because most of the time, those places are so normal yet a corporate facade adds a trendy/funky/hip style that people think is weird. The word shitty is startling and reminds those who understand the underlying philosophy, that this place is real. Keep Tucson Shitty is about saving the soul of this crazy, rebellious town. I'm appalled by your view on this phrase because either you don't get and grew up on the East side or your from some shitty, bland suburb of Phoenix or monotonous California town. Tucson has little things that make it obscure, and for lack of a better word, shitty. It is interesting because the yards are not manicured, nor are the people. Companies downtown cater to the California kids who come to the UA for school yet talk shit because Tucson is shitty and Tucson is real. I'm sososo glad downtown has been revitalized, but what I hope never happens is rents skyrocketing to the point that local delights like Delectables or Lindys that have a strange, harsh charm and keep to their OWN style, can stay there! If there is a damn Starbucks on 4th ave I would be so sad! And more than likely those who think Tucson should become a robotic manicured and "corporately beautiful" town, would think a Starbucks would be convenient on 4th...I say to you Fuck Off! Tucson is fucking genuine, if you don't understand move back to Phoenix. Keep it fucking real Tucson, keep it real!
