Thanks Jaxx. You are absolutely right. Fixed it.
@Ron, they also wear sashes, duh!
@Driftaway: I'm sometimes amazed at the awe in which folks like this hold homosexuals, as if they're all X-men with mind control powers, hell-bent on "converting" people. I suppose it really boils down to them having to really consider what they really believe, and finding it easier to call all gays satanic rather than question anything they are pretty sure they read in the Bible.
"B-b-b-but, if I knowingly teach a gay how to tie a clove hitch, then I'll be damned to hell fire eternally!" Right.
Lower density, higher prices, less parking? F*cking genius.
who wouldn't want to watch charlie papazian for 20 seconds to hear what they are? so cool that they got him to record a video for it
It's funny how that No. 1 ranking can be accomplished without winning a major.
I'll take your bet. I'll wager a day at a day spa with Andre Bauer.
I'd be happy to take that "will never win another major" bet. I have a feeling they said the same about the greatest player of my father's generation.
Also, check a dictionary. "Washed up has-been" applies to people far past their prime who can't compete any more. Tiger, as noted, is still number 1, and will almost certainly remain on he very top tier of professional players for years to come.
Interesting counter-punch. But get your sh** straight: Aaron Franklin doesn't 'serve' any of his meats with anything. You want to sauce it, your go to the other counter and pour it yourself.
Amazing that you have to watch a video to find out the most crucial piece of information in the article. Not even a mention of the ingredient AFTER the embedded video... Poor, poor writing.
Also, unlike politics, movies, and the business world where comebacks are truly possible, athletics is a young man's game. The physical wear and tear has already taken a toll on Tiger. He may have the No. 1 ranking now, but he will never be the dominate player that he once was. It's really only downhill from here.
Actually Drew. I do watch golf. The point is Tiger hasn't won a major since 2008, and odds are, he will never win another one. When it comes to majors these days, Tiger generally has a good round on Thursday and Friday and then blows it on Saturday. By Sunday, he's irrelevant except for being the TMZ sideshow freak that he is.
Washed up has-been?? He's the #1 ranked golfer in the world. You don't follow sports much, do you?
I get what you are saying. I didn't really consider it freedom of speech, as TV stations are all privately owned (aside from PBS). I just disagree with censorship in general, and feel that it should be up to the stations to decide what is allowed to be said on their broadcasts. I don't like the government controlling all aspects of this. Oh damn, I am starting to sound like a libertarian.
very tacky comment posted by Mayor above!! geez people, give the chef a chance before you blast his attempt to bring more business to your area! calma!!
I am a frequent presence in the down town street performer scene. I'm gonna remain anonymous due the rediculous sensitivity of the subject. I just wanna say that this is just wrong and a true example of backwards and narrow minded legislation and legality from charleston. 1) The fact that this city is so unforgiving and closed minded towards something that has been and is becoming more and more significant in not only the charleston music & art scene but the tourist scene as well... Is for lack of a better description COMPLETELY ILOGICAL & INEXCUSABLE. There's absolutely no remote good reason (outside of greed & ignorance) that I not only have to pay an ungodly robbery of fees ($100+) for a license that's so infantisimal that the cops couldn't even tell me how much it costs (by a long shot there guess being "around 10$") when they actually decided to hassle me for no good reason that I could think of or that could be given. 2)I didn't come out and start playing for people just to make some pocket money or supplement my income in any way. In fact when I first started playing out here I quite frequently & respectfully refused tips or donations as I believed it took away from the purity and lagitamacy of my intentions and message which I adimately believe and convey.(peace, love, understanding & the underestimated power of positivity & what I refer to as the will & the way) it wasn't until people were flat out INSISTING I accept there tips that I (after much self control & patience) gave in and started graciously accepting them. 3)I hold myself to very strict professional standards when it comes to my performance. I replace and water down lyrics as well as even song choice in respect to where I am and who I'm playing for. 4)I posses a GOD GIVEN tallent to entertain a very wide variety of people which has been credited by listeners to everything from simply entertain to change someone's initial view of charleston for the better to even keeping someone from "making a very big irreversible mistake." Comparing what I do to operating a business is apples to oranges and frankly insulting. I didn't buy this gift it was given to me to use. No body taught me or persuaded to peruse music. It simply came to me by chance and second nature...this is just scratching the surface of how backwards and ignorant it is for an artist such as myself to have pay so much and pass through an absolutely unreasonable amount of red tape (almost as if the beaurocratic phillistine PRICK who's inflicting these requirements simply doesn't want us out there at all.) meanwhile your run of the mill begger, grifter, con artist & drug junky can freely sit in the same spot with their hand out and a sob story to con people out of there money. I've witnessed this and my response is WTF! Whoever is making the decisions this needs to make like computer and get with the program because this is an absolute sabatoge to the layed back and open atmosphere of charleston which about 9 out of 10 tourists come here for and expect to experience. It doesn't make sense why you can be a strait bum and beg discretely but if your given a gratuity for being good at something you love then your treated as though your some con artist or snake oil salesmen. The fact that this is even being made into an issue the city should address and regulate so much is just fucking WRONG and makes me and MANY others question what exactly are the priorities of our city government, who's really runnin the show and what exactly are their intentions for our great city. As for this musician/victim of backwards beaurocracy I end with this. You will still stop me from doing what I was put here on this earth to do when pry my intstrument from my cold death gripping hands. If that makes me an outlaw then SO be it. Why should I try to appease and comply with laws that are borderline unconstitutional and absolutely unreasonable in so many blaintant ways. Call me what you want "criminal" "vagrant" but the fact is that MANY others would call me a "freedom fighter" and a "true patriot." With that said there are a lot more people (including a significant number of charleston's precious tourists" who are much more inclined to agree with me than the deep pocketed narrow minded philistines who have put me and many other hardworking professional entertainers in the unfortunate position we are in. If any of those people are reading this trust & believe that there is a lot more of us than there are you. We care, we vote, and we are well prepared for revolutionary means to stand up for our rights and ourselves.
Is a 400 word article about Tiger Woods really the best way to quit talking about him?
Because nothing is currently gay about a bunch of dudes hanging out in the woods together in short shorts and neckerchiefs.
Mark Sanford, unbelievable that the Republicans in Charleston could not come up with anyone better than a known liar, a proven thief and a massive hypocrite. At least we will not have to hear the words "Family Values" out of him this time around. Hey - maybe that asshat from NC, John Edwards, should move down here, we love cheaters and liars and he would fit right in with the local political scene.
So the article offers a 3 year old song from an earlier release? Anyway, the new CD is AWESOME. Read the Amazon reviews!
The leadership of the Boy Scouts of America believes this proposed change is the right thing to do for God, for the boys, and for America.
They point out that no one gets kicked out of any of the participating churches just because someone says they are attracted to someone of the same sex.
They also strongly object to the idea that this proposal will mean an increase in sexual abuse.
This proposal if adopted will help boys grow with the Lord's help to become more loving and helpful men.
Gay does not mean pedophile. What is everyone so upset about?
