Love it. thanks for sharing.
Fascinating, totally old school. Of course the photographic material probably came out of a digital printer and the image went back into a digital camera, but that was an interesting visit to the 1970s between. How could you resist rub on lettering? Must have been hard.
Oddly, there are some items up there I would like to own. Visits there were always enjoyable. Wonderful local business.
Though, Many of you were not in Charleston SC, but you can have a lot of good time by following it on Twitter. WordCamp Charleston 2014 held in the College of Charleston. There were many known names as speakers from WordPress industry like Suzette Franck, David Laietta, Jen Mylo and non other than Andrew Nacin.
here is the highlight: http://www.cloudways.com/blog/wordcamp-charleston-2014-highlights/
That's bull! Who extends a contest deadline?
cast my vote,ok,???
"As long as incoming freshmen aren't expected or required to attend who cares."
Colleges shouldn't require students to do anything! It's an infringement of their rights!
That is really great karma, do note the proceeds to Charleston Reads. Thanks for the update. The events on campus and USC feel like an insidious threat to LGBTQ rights, to me anyway. Which is odd because I am an old white dude who spent a career arguing with bullies.
aaajn, both shows sold out the Memminger Auditorium and the show was a very nice adaptation of the full stage show. The cast is apparently donating the proceeds to Charleston Reads and local LGBTQ groups.
dp4, no freshman were required to read the book! That's the ignorant shit your elected officials are selling you and you just suck it up as gospel. They could have wiped their ass with it and thrown it away. It is sent to every student and there is a NON-REQUISITE class offered that centers around the book. No one was ever required to read it. Also, I would encourage you to look at the book and make your mind up then. If the scenes depicted in the book were shown in an R-rated movie no one would even bat an eye.
Would love to hear what Glenn McConnell has to say about this.
How did it go? I had another commitment and was sorry to miss it. I didn't know much about the play but I wanted to support the community.
Or do they all agree with him?
Why can we not get a quote from a local legislator that disagrees with Mr. Grooms?
dp4, apparently, members of our regressive and bigoted legislature. The response of this senator is particularly telling (and disgusting) in a quote from the Post and Courier:
"State Sen. Larry Grooms, R-Charleston, an outspoken opponent of "Fun Home" being selected for the freshman reading program, said that he has heard about the play and believes it is a direct response to the House's decision to cut funds due to the college's controversial summer reading choice.
That "protest" move is not wise, Grooms said, and he plans to bring it up as the Senate debates this year's budget.
"If lessons weren't learned over there, the Senate may speak a little bit louder than the House. There would be a number of members in the Senate that would have a great interest in fixing the deficiencies at the College of Charleston," Grooms said.
He declined to say specifically what action or cuts he had planned."
SC politicians have no shame. This is a blatant threat of retribution. The idea that this neanderthal was even elected to office is a sad reflection on the state of SC. And, of course, I would doubt very much that our new fearless leader would lift a finger to defend the institution he claims to love so much.
As long as incoming freshmen aren't expected or required to attend who cares.
^^^What they said! Good one Mat.
Suck on this, right-wing theater-goers.
$15/head to see a Tony-award winning actor in a Pullitzer-nominated production? That is a steal.
