Re: “Best Urban Planning Decision for Traffic Jams

Well Ms. Curry may know how to use three syllable words like 'clusterfuck' and she might know how to bake cookies but she doesn't know a damn thing about city planning or urban design. Other than that, it was totally inaccurate. Great job. Sorry you had to miss so many classes in journalism school.

Re: “Best Party of 2013

I really think they need to add some categories for next year. I don't know if all the sponsors were covered with this years.

Re: “Mocked, misunderstood, and maligned, the Juggalos stand by each other

I was introduced to ICP when I was in my early twenties. I go to a LOT of shows from all different music genres, but there is NOTHING that compares to the love and acceptance at any Juggalo show I've been to. There is a level of acceptance there I wish the rest of the world embraced. FAMILY! I think that says it all.

Re: “Best Party of 2013

Dali,

Just so you know, the Readers' nominated the Best Of party and then voted for the Best Of party. The City Paper did not, and would not, select our own party. That would be lame. Like spending $100,000 to create a committee to search for a new college president only to pick the guy you were going to pick in the first place.

^ "for an event that is not even a party, it’s an award reception." Dali, that's the most asinine thing you could possibly say about the Best of party. You obviously have no idea what you're talking about.

Re: “Most Underrated Outdoor Springtime Activity

After a walk on the beach in 2005 I stopped by the College of Charleston baseball complex and I've never quit going back. I've been a season ticket holder and love the teams Coach's Monte Lee and John Pawloski have put on the field. There is a sense of a group of guys who love to play the game. The Stadium had been expanded, I feel a "if you build it, they will come" attitude every time I watch a game! Go Cougars, CAA Conference opener Friday vs Northeastern.

Re: “Mocked, misunderstood, and maligned, the Juggalos stand by each other

"Our music has helped a lot of good human beings through a lot of shit, and if they have a problem with, then they can fuck right off."

That is EXACTLY what it is. Listen, if ppl don't like the music, find it weird and kinda funny and maybe even poke one or two jokes, it's all fine. But if you really HATE the juggalos and ICP, man there is something wrong with you. ICP is not Lady Gaga. Its not like you don't have a choice here. If one does not want to see, hear or even remotely feel anything ICP related, you don't HAVE to. ICP is not shoved in your face.
They are not on TV. You don't need to waste any time on anything you don't like. Thing is, people LOVE to hate these days. They love it. And Juggalos and ICP are not just an easy target to spread your foul hate, it is also widely considered a good thing if you wish to wipe them all out. It's crazy. Live and let live. Peace to all of you and god bless

Re: “Best Crafty Trend

This place is just what Charleston needed! I've already taken 2 different classes there, and they were both super! Last Saturday I did the yoga/paint class. Fabulous! What makes Rock Paper Scissors so great is the atmosphere. It just has a great feel. I'm going back to make a drum next. Love it!!

Re: “Best Party of 2013

Blowing Smoke Up Your Own Ass

I was going through the seemingly endless categories in the Best Of issue and stopped in my tracks when I saw the winner for Best Party of 2013. You've got to be kidding, right? Not only did Charleston City Paper allow their own event (Best of Charleston Party) to be in the running but selected it as Best Party of 2013. This reeks of the nepotism and insider elitism that has permeated this town for centuries.

While any legitimate organization excludes family, employees and any affiliate having an interest in the contest from participating in contests that organization is conducting for impartiality, City Paper cavalierly tosses propriety aside to go through the pretense of competition only to award itself.

Now, if there was a category for SELF-AGGRANDIZING OPPORTUNITSTS; that would have been the appropriate place for City Paper to anoint themselves as Best Of.

There are so many great parties that organizers spend long months putting together who were dismissed and, for an event that is not even a party, it’s an award reception. All of the rightful nominees got shafted. You should be ashamed of yourselves.

Disappointed but not surprised

What is happening? Simple. They weren't attracting enough customers to make a good profit. Rule #1 with any retail - evolve or die. (see: Sears, J.C. Penny, Radio Shack)

Re: “Best Crafty Trend

This art studio has it all! We had so much fun at a pre-wedding party - just us girls. We painted wine glasses, drank wine, and laughed the whole time. What a great place! Thanks, Amanda!
