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: “TEDx Charleston: Maybe we can change the world

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.

Re: “TEDx Charleston: Maybe we can change the world

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.

Re: “'American Pickers' is looking for your cool stuff

ALL so-called "reality shows" are like that. The dialogue might not be pre-scripted but the scenes and set-ups are all pre-planned.

Re: “'American Pickers' is looking for your cool stuff

Those guys came to my friends place. The meeting was pre-arranged and producers came by first to see what he had. It's basically fake. They pulled into his driveway like they just happen to find it.

Overcrowded and rusted you say? I've got some Charleston infrastructure they may be interested in.
