Re: “Charleston's Shepard Fairey creates inauguration protest posters

So is this over-hyped hipster still stealing images from other social movements while casually appropriating the copy-written work of black artists?

Re: “Itinerant Literate pairs with local restaurants for a book club and pop-up series

Yay! This is by far the best book club ever! The food is amazing, the books are complex and intriguing, the conversation is invigorating, and the camaraderie is not to be missed. Itinerant Literate and The Junction is a beautiful pairing.

Re: “From a film about a Colonial witch to a star-turn for Casey Affleck, these were the best of 2016

I would add a few more:

Captain Fantastic - Hippy survivalist Viggo Mortensen deals with his wive's death and his children's shocking introduction to American materialistic society.

The Light Between Oceans - Australian Michael Fassbender and wife Alicia Vikander move to an isolated lighthouse, where after the stillbirth of their child, they informally adopt a baby girl who washes up in a lifeboat. Two years later they discover that there are other people in the world, and keeping the child has devastated one of them. With Rachel Weisz.

Re: “Garrison Keillor may have left 'A Prairie Home Companion,' but he's still telling stories

I believe you believe it is humorous to troll articles written about you.

It is.

Although not a fan, I am a dedicated listener.

You are coy. Waiting for the screenplay. Blessings on your hoary head and your hairy Neanderthal knuckles that would buckle in blue were it not OK for you. So, do as you do, and partner your share, donned in your 74 hair, Meester Blue.

Re: “Garrison Keillor may have left 'A Prairie Home Companion,' but he's still telling stories

Garrison I've been a fan since first hearing A Prairie Home Companion on WRPI in the mid 70s. Loved the humor, the music and the politics. What happened? Retirement turn you into a Republican? When the House sells out for a $110,000 take, what's your share? Call me an idealist, but you disappoint me.

Re: “Why can't his name be Stipe?

I feel you. I've been an R.E.M. fan since middle school. Once I discovered Monster, I went all the way back to Murmur and listened and loved every album. I still do! I also will find a song(s) that will drive an entire story for me. I'm working on a novel now that is driven by Zero 7's "In the Waiting Line". PS: R.E.M.'s "Green" is one of my favorites and holds a special place in my heart. Thanks for letting me know people haven't forgotten about them.

Re: “Review: PURE Theatre's 'Underneath the Lintel' is just the kind of magical play we need right now

We saw this play yesterday and I came away with a profound appreciation for the message so adroitly set forth by the reviewer, the playwright and most especially by the actors' actor, Rodney Lee Rogers. Now IS the time to take action for our democratic ideals and to protect the underprivileged and unlucky or risk losing our souls. Thank you, Rodney and Sharon. Power to the PURE!!!

Re: “How Art Thou Jazz Lounge presents national acts once a month

Mr. Dobie did a fine job capturing the intent and the mission of How Art Thou Jazz Lounge. People near the larger cities around the country are used to having a convenient jazz club that hosts world-class musicians. An opportunity to hear these great musicians at a small and intimate environment is something that was sorely lacking in Charleston. I really hope that the Jazz community will come out in force and support the efforts of this new Jazz Club.

Taking on a task like this is perilous regardless of your music policy. But dealing with jazz has and even higher failure rate than virtually any other kind of venue.

David Burger is taking a lot of risk because he really wants to have the premier Jazz Club in South Carolina. Based on what we've seen so far I think he has a shot.

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.
