Holland’s Westshore Mall Getting ‘De-malled’ Makeover Starting June 11 [Video]

Growing up in South Haven, one of the closest malls to us was Westshore Mall in Holland. We went there a lot when I was kid, so it's been sad for me to see the shopping center's decline in recent years.

In February, WZZM-13 reported that Westshore Mall, which once had more that 60 stores, was down to seven.

Well, now it's been confirmed that Westhore Mall is getting a makeover. According to WZZM-13, a $20 million de-malling and renovation project will break ground June 11 at 2p.m.

Faith No More Punished Detroit With Their Original Singer Friday Night [Video]

I like Faith No More, I really do. I've enjoyed them since I first heard 'We Care A Lot', back when Chuck Mosley was their vocalist. I say vocalist, and not singer, as you can hear from the clip above. He's probably a really nice guy, and he really tries hard, but singing really isn't something he's cut out for.

This performance rates right up there with Scott Weiland's from last week, when he destroyed 'Vaseline' for Corpus Christi. If you like the song 'Mark Bowen', you might not want to watch this, as you probably won't like it anymore after.

Detroit News Anchor Hopes for ‘Dry Hump Day’ [Video]
