Re: “Chris Johnson's Question Bridge brings divisions in African-American culture into focus

"Why do you talk like a white person?"

That sounds rather insulting.

Re: “Why the best year in South Carolina's filmmaking history might be its last good year

I can completely relate, as to how all of you involved in the film industry, feel . Turning back into time, mid 1990's , there were such awesome opportunities, and some lawmakers, then, challenged, and championed for the film industry to have a great life, within the arms of SC. Some, others, made some dumb mistakes and I have been sad since then.
Savannah College of Art and Design was spinning out upon avenues that SC could have/should have, and it made me -sick, that we would be seen to be- left behind.
I saw, then, the writing on the wall, of what would come from - no insight, and I thought, "HOW can this be" ! We have everything going for us, and WHY should we not be- 'out in front ' ??
Someone told me, "to have SC happen, it must be- by the people/for the people" .
I see, still, that this is true, more than ever and you all have the heart and soul driven drive, to cross that finish line- 1st!, - and I am one who hopes that you all, as SC film industry people, can unite, together, and drive those heart and soul felt dreams, slamdunk , into - reality .
I truly believe that you can.
You have more going for you, than you might realize, because, what I saw back then, still, exists, and so much more, now, today .
You have cards within your hands and you ,all, together, need to find a way to make them work for you.
Go and bring home the bacon, for yourselves, and, the people of SC.
You have the guts and gear!
and I have renewed hope!

Re: “Peeking behind the curtain with Charleston's illusionists

Caleb Alexander does not show up for a prepaid performance! We hired him for a birthday/family reunion and he disappointed everyone by not showing up. I don't know what he was thinking. He had no excuses and still has not returned my prepayment. Don't be disappointed, don't hire this guy!!

Re: “Why the best year in South Carolina's filmmaking history might be its last good year

Excellent work, Ms. Spitz, in shedding light on this charged subject in your debut story for CCP. Your writing is refreshing, insightful, and appears to be carefully researched. I have followed your work from your previous engagement with Willamette Week in Portland, Oregon. Great to have young writers with substance, style, and class. Brava!

Congrats to Michael Campina for his outstanding photography -

Re: “Why the best year in South Carolina's filmmaking history might be its last good year

I sure hope they smarten up and get us on par with Georgia and No. Carolina and do it quickly. There are a lot of us here whose lives depend on it. I too am in the industry and would love to see more work here for everyone. This is a non brainer. Great incentives, more jobs more revenue it really is that simple.
It brings more goodness than not.

Nice review, but author should be advised both males and females have X chromosomes.

Tabula rasa rather than rosa? Children were considered bank tablets, not pink ones.

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.
