Shit. I know you every time you walk in that door. Straight off the bat.
Needs a kids menu.
Thanks for your eloquent comment, ImFromHere. I think it's important to note that actually, the Spoleto Festival is supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, not to mention a long list of foundations. So yes, there actually is lots of public money for the arts (though not enough). Ticket prices certainly don't cover the cost of something like Paradise Interrupted. If Spoleto were to offer a free community event, as countless arts and music festivals do around the world, I imagine they would search for an individual patron or a foundation grant to cover the cost. Pretty standard stuff.
I am very aware of the financial challenges the CSO has faced — we've been reporting on them for years — and yet they're still able to offer free events like their family concerts at the Aquarium and an outdoor concert at Hampton Park. You should attend one some time. They're great.
"I gave you a rare thumbs-down for that post, Ron."
Please, call me Mr. Liberte. Ron is my father.
These recaps are vital to my feeling of superiority. The writer and I are so far above the trashy cast of Southern Charm.
Therefore, Stephanie Barna, you owe it to our pretense of literacy to look up what mano y mano means. This is not man to man, it's hand and hand. Hand. Manuscript, manacles, etc.
Elizabeth Pandolfi, you don't know your ass from a hole in the ground. City Lights was accompanied by the Spoleto Festival Orchestra. How could that be free? Are you vaguely aware of the financial challenges the Charleston Symphony Orchestra has been facing? There is no public money for free high-quality music to accompany a film festival. Jesus.
"And their electric guitar player, whose name I need to look up, deserves a serious mention — he played solos that put rock band frontmen to shame." Jesus is weeping. You didn't have time to look up a player's name? This drivel couldn't have waited 5 minutes?
Dabo is supposed to be a role model to athletes and students alike - both straight and gay. His participation in the event jeopardizes this because it reveals that he thinks differently about us. Not too surprised given his past transgressions.
I gave you a rare thumbs-down for that post, Ron.
Sweet! Nice Writing!!!!
Reading this is almost better than actually watching!!!! Though that WOULD be difficult !
Fuck this article. Seriously: it's just a bunch of pictures of a stupid N.F.L. (I apologize for the redundancy) meathead. Who gives a shit that he was in Charleston? Who?
You're better than this, Sam Spence.
"I think it is funny all these liberals realize Obama sucks, so what do they call him. A moderate republican! Hilarious"
I'm glad you agree Republicans suck.
"I think it is funny all these liberals realize Obama sucks"
Apparently he sucked less than his opponents in the last two elections.
I'm a Steelers fan but the Gronk is just too cool & down to earth!!! I respect him all day!!!
Duwayne, they went home, changed, popped their pink polo collars and the brolove brofest and bro-ing continued long into the evening and early morning.
"House Democrats are taking issue with Clemson football coach Dabo Swinney's plans to appear at a Palmetto Family Council event on June 2, objecting to the group's stances on gay marriage and abortion."
If anyone should support the gays it should be a football coach. This is a guy who is in charge of a group of men who wear tight pants, like to pile on top of each other, smack each other on the ass and shower together, and who play in a sport with the whole purpose of grabbing balls.
I wonder how many times they said bro.
The Gronk Nation has obviously arrived in the Chuck.
Fact: Obama is the third best president of all time. Right behind Trey Gowdy and Tasty Tasty Hate Chicken.
Next time you're at Huddle House, I'll send over a plate of fries. Only then will I reveal my presence.
I think it is funny all these liberals realize Obama sucks, so what do they call him. A moderate republican! Hilarious
