Re: “The Muppets

This movie hits the spot for old fans and new. The cast-- human and Muppet alike-- nailed it from the beginning to the end. I still can't get the "Manamana!" song out of my head!

Re: “(500) Days of Summer

This movie was great. It was a realistic take on modern relationships, but also sweet and heartwarming. I laughed out loud and almost cried, all within an hour or so. It also had me singing sounds from the Smiths, which are featured on the soundtrack and in some of the movie dialogue for at least 3 days.

Re: “Participating in the Women's March on Washington? Make posters at The Junction Friday night

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.

Re: “Charleston's Shepard Fairey creates inauguration protest posters

So is this over-hyped hipster still stealing images from other social movements while casually appropriating the copy-written work of black artists?

Re: “Itinerant Literate pairs with local restaurants for a book club and pop-up series

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.

Re: “From a film about a Colonial witch to a star-turn for Casey Affleck, these were the best of 2016

I would add a few more:

Captain Fantastic - Hippy survivalist Viggo Mortensen deals with his wive's death and his children's shocking introduction to American materialistic society.

The Light Between Oceans - Australian Michael Fassbender and wife Alicia Vikander move to an isolated lighthouse, where after the stillbirth of their child, they informally adopt a baby girl who washes up in a lifeboat. Two years later they discover that there are other people in the world, and keeping the child has devastated one of them. With Rachel Weisz.

Re: “Garrison Keillor may have left 'A Prairie Home Companion,' but he's still telling stories

I believe you believe it is humorous to troll articles written about you.

It is.

Although not a fan, I am a dedicated listener.

You are coy. Waiting for the screenplay. Blessings on your hoary head and your hairy Neanderthal knuckles that would buckle in blue were it not OK for you. So, do as you do, and partner your share, donned in your 74 hair, Meester Blue.

Re: “Garrison Keillor may have left 'A Prairie Home Companion,' but he's still telling stories

Garrison I've been a fan since first hearing A Prairie Home Companion on WRPI in the mid 70s. Loved the humor, the music and the politics. What happened? Retirement turn you into a Republican? When the House sells out for a $110,000 take, what's your share? Call me an idealist, but you disappoint me.

Re: “Why can't his name be Stipe?

I feel you. I've been an R.E.M. fan since middle school. Once I discovered Monster, I went all the way back to Murmur and listened and loved every album. I still do! I also will find a song(s) that will drive an entire story for me. I'm working on a novel now that is driven by Zero 7's "In the Waiting Line". PS: R.E.M.'s "Green" is one of my favorites and holds a special place in my heart. Thanks for letting me know people haven't forgotten about them.

Re: “Review: PURE Theatre's 'Underneath the Lintel' is just the kind of magical play we need right now

We saw this play yesterday and I came away with a profound appreciation for the message so adroitly set forth by the reviewer, the playwright and most especially by the actors' actor, Rodney Lee Rogers. Now IS the time to take action for our democratic ideals and to protect the underprivileged and unlucky or risk losing our souls. Thank you, Rodney and Sharon. Power to the PURE!!!

Re: “How Art Thou Jazz Lounge presents national acts once a month

Mr. Dobie did a fine job capturing the intent and the mission of How Art Thou Jazz Lounge. People near the larger cities around the country are used to having a convenient jazz club that hosts world-class musicians. An opportunity to hear these great musicians at a small and intimate environment is something that was sorely lacking in Charleston. I really hope that the Jazz community will come out in force and support the efforts of this new Jazz Club.

Taking on a task like this is perilous regardless of your music policy. But dealing with jazz has and even higher failure rate than virtually any other kind of venue.

David Burger is taking a lot of risk because he really wants to have the premier Jazz Club in South Carolina. Based on what we've seen so far I think he has a shot.
