Sole motivation for this piece came from internal angst and strife suffered from years of being from the wrong side of the tracks.Pure expesssion of sadn as and love mixed with a bit of anger!
Alexander Hamilton was, ahem, "intimate friends" with Charlestonian John Laurens.
I was a member of the CSO's Decomposing Composers Society long ago. I hope they fill the slots but $35/mo is kinda steep. The parties must be spectacular.
Too bad, it was a nice addition to art and cinema in downtown Charleston, unfortunately most of the locals in the area only support the growing alcohol economy. This is why we can't have nice things.
Preach it, lynnar! Fuck those elitist celebrities with their arrogance and hatefulness who are so detached from the every day struggles of the common person. That's why I voted for a multi-millionaire reality TV star.
All the more reason not to watch. You want to talk protesting? I am protesting every award show on TV, including the Tony's from NYC. I don't need to be lectured from these elitists, who make millions and live in their own bubbles and don't have a worry in the world on paying their bills, or paying for their healthcare. They live in mansions and are totally alienated from areas, they would never, ever walk through themselves. I do not need to hear their holier than thou attitudes on how they are better than us peons out there, and making fun of us, just because we happen to have a difference of opinion. They are sooo inclusive, arent' they? Ha. And as far as I can recall, the expression "It's going to be HUGE", was originally made by Bernie Sanders. Who, btw, sold out and bought a lake house on Lake Champlain ( on the Vt. side) for approx. $650,000. Now where on earth did he get that money??? The man was worth only $250,000 when he turned in his tax records. The man never had a real job in his life. He was practically homeless when he first moved to VT. He never made money Even as a senator, he was supposed to one of the honest ones. Interesting when he sold out to Hillary,he all of a suddenly bought himself a lake house. So Steverino can make fun of Trump and Melaina and his kids all he wants. I have a feeling his audience won't be that "huge". Or the most watched.
We're gonna miss you, Will! Thanks for bringing a twist to Upper King and to Charleston.
You liberal women are so tolerant. Make sure you bring that sign with an X over the fetus.
The New Wave Feminists has been unceremoniously expelled from the list of participants at the upcoming Womens March on Washington, once organizers discovered that the group did not adhere to the strict pro-abortion requirement for marchers.
New Wave Feminists had been chosen as an official partner of the Jan. 21 Womens March on Washington, until the Atlantic magazine revealed that the group believes in the right to life of unborn children.
We need signs saying "I want my whole damn dollar!" by Nina Turner!!
So is this over-hyped hipster still stealing images from other social movements while casually appropriating the copy-written work of black artists?
Yay! This is by far the best book club ever! The food is amazing, the books are complex and intriguing, the conversation is invigorating, and the camaraderie is not to be missed. Itinerant Literate and The Junction is a beautiful pairing.
Downtown Abbey, eh? Ya'll don't have editors.... Or...?
The guy from Robin Hood? Never heard of him.
If my art wasn't too big for the measurement requirements I would submit:(
Connelly, thanks for your write-up on the 2016 TED X Charleston event. I could not have described the event better myself. TED X Charleston 2016 was inspirational, a real eye opener that challenged me to drink in life with eyes wide open to opportunities for sharing my God-given gifts in new, unexplored way. One action I have already committed to is participating as a TED X Charleston volunteer for 2017. Another is volunteering twice a week with Reading Partners South Carolina to help a struggling student learn to read with better understanding and proficiency.
Little known to the public are the ways that TED X Charleston gets involved before, during with after the day of the event. TED's commitment of "inclusion" extends beyond socio-economic and racial diversity to include geography, gender, and industry. Some of the events attended by TED X volunteers and friends this year included a "Women in Technology" meeting, as well as a resource/job fair hosted by the Housing Authority. All 10 Title One schools in the area were invited to the TED X Charleston Dress Rehearsal. Nine schools accepted the invitation. Two other area schools asked if they could attend. I am happy to report that a total of 11 schools participated and between 415-450 students attended.
Ted Talks do a great job of preaching to the choir about how we need social revolution. What good have any of them actually done? This is another mostly white middle-to-upper class circle jerk where so-called progressives get to feel good about themselves and pat themselves on the back despite not actually doing anything to make the world better. "At $65 a pop" the cost of admission doesn't really speak to the inclusiveness that these people pretend they care about.
Great perspective, Connelly! Thank you for your words.
Do you think that station will start early in playing Kwanzaa music?
Is this another battle in the War on Christmas?!
Mary Lou Scott, Yes I can do cats!
