Re: “Beverly "Guitar" Watkins after-party

What a fun party that was. A full moon, a fantastic kitchen, a perfect garden, a pool, Cru Catering....great Spoleto party memories were made that night on Legare Street.

Re: “Docu-reality show about Pet Helpers to air on Nat Geo Wild

I'm a backer from their Kickstarter drive. I'll be looking forward to seeing my name in the "special thanks" section after each show, as promised. Or is that not happening either?

Backstory: this Kickstarter campaign is one of the reasons I haven't backed more local organizations. They were successfully funded and seemed to drop off the face of the earth and never updated backers until I sent multiple messages to the organizer. She seemed to have forgotten what was even offered on the campaign. I realize that backing something like this should be about saving the lives of animals, and I donate almost exclusively to rescue every year. However, living up to commitments is a huge part of any campaign, be it for profit or not. It will be interesting to see if yet another promise by the organizers falls through.

Re: “New theater company focuses on original plays

Such a pleasure to have worked with these wonderful people and to call them my friends. They are each brilliant in their own way, and I cannot wait to see them succeed, and hopefully be a part of their productions in the future!

I would like to think Mr. Wonderful is just an act. But I seriously doubt it. He would definitely not be the life of the party.

Re: “Dig South adds new creative focus, changes venues

I first went to screen a film at Cinebarre and could not stand the smell of old french fries or whatever it was. Went to The Terrace instead thank goodness.

LuckyMom is right. Cinnabarre is kind of a dump.

Re: “Dig South adds new creative focus, changes venues

I hope Cinebarre can do something about the musty mildew smell before it acts as host for such an awesome event. It has such great potential, but it seriously reeks in there--I know more than a few people who have left before the features even start. Yuck.

Re: “Why is this man so angry?

I was entangled with him since 2014 and he makes me laugh even at worst times such as me having a bad day.

Re: “J.C. Chandor's A Most Violent Year channels Coppola and Scorsese

Oscar Issacs channeling an angry young Pacino is hard to take your eyes off in this Scorsese wantabee and Chastain is truly able to show her broad range. Unfortunately, the third act of this saga, while it has a more or less ok conclusion, left me feeling cheated. All build up without a satisfying release.

A nice acting comparison piece to this movie is Issac's role in THE TWO FACE OF JANUARY (2014). The film is also a bit of a misfire but Issac's ability to play a total different character (sort of a naive young con man in over his head with a real con man) shows he's someone to watch.
