Bummer. Can I feel nostalgic for something that I saw birthed even if it isn't that old? Who am I kidding? I still miss Sharkey's!
Would that there were more articles like this one! Reading about the past leads to an understanding of who and what we are today --and why we are the way we are-- and it follows that we learn more about what we could be in the future. In short, reading history makes us better people and better citizens.
There was one on James Island too, lest we forget.
Yet another business forced out by greedy landlords wanting ridiculous amounts of rent.
Sorry to disappoint all the negative un romantics out there.....But Sir Thomas Ravenel
And Lady Kathryn Denis are still the most handsome and beautiful couple
in the Kingdom of Charleston.....They are equally royal, brilliant, stunning, elegant
and in love with each other.....just their timing is off as Lady Kathryn has wisely
noted .....Sad to to see the proverbial "onion" peeled away highlighting the disappointing others in the cast. They have displayed disloyalty, inappropriate
behavior, rudeness , lack of character and certainly a lack of Southern Charm!
Long live and Prosper with many blessings to Sir Thomas and his Lady Love
the beautiful and wise Lady Kathryn who is the most educated mannered and
Charming of them all....
Relevant and insightful on so many levels and leads to the most significant ritual of all--Who are you? What do you embody? How do you manifest your dignity as a human being? How do you grow beyond and determine how the others see you? Can't wait to see the exhibit,
I always thought as Upper Morrison, or Cool Blow. Guess UPMO be out!
Instead of Upper Edge, I just like North Edge. A lot easier and rolls off the tongue. The Drum is also way better than NoMo. I wish as a city we steered away from recycled terminology that's slightly adapted to fit us: "Silicon Harbor", "NoMo"... it's a poor attempt and completely unoriginal. Let it die here and now.
Others to throw on the pile:
- Union Village - plays on the North/South and the decidedly different vibe up there as opposed to historical Charleston (more tech, culinary influence of North and West Coast, architecture, and commerce). Also, this area is a lot more of a melting pot between races, cultures, and especially ages in comparison to King St Corridor and south.
- Bridgeport - It's just by the Ravenel, the Naval port is part of this area (not as inspired but no one can argue with the applicable nature of the name)
Small business owners are being crushed by government regulations, Obamacare, the economy & overseas competition. Low information consumers are quick to judge their business decisions. The Crosby's and their partners have run a quality, ethical business for close to 30 years. They should be supported for unavoidable business decisions & not blamed. They were encroached upon by urban development. Enjoy the fruits of your labor & thanks for years of great seafood.
And don't forget that great music by The Half-Measures Band!
And so much more offered them meals and wheels got to be there to check it out!
It was good last year and it's going to be GREAT this year!
This is getting exhausting. Read this article in its context, people. The Royal American is an awesome local venue. But ... THIS IS A STUDENT GUIDE. A short one at that, because we're not a blog with unlimited space - we're a costly print publication. And while Royal is great, they have no all-ages shows. And while the Music Hall is also one of my faves, underagers are more likely to be drawn to dives. This was written by a college student for college students, listing "some" not "all" venues. Anyone who thinks we don't support the Royal American and a ton of other great venues doesn't read our paper anyway. We recommend shows everywhere every single week. And yes we could have done nothing but list downtown venues, but then we'd do a disservice to places like the Hive that do all-ages shows all the time and are huge supporters of the underground, underage scene. If you're not a cheap dive bar that does all-ages shows, you should not expect to see yourself in a student guide.
It seems like this is an article aimed at incoming CofC freshmen, mostly <21. The Royal American as far as I know is 21+, as are most of the bar venues in the city. Still, JWB's comment is gold.
I will say, though, that the advice to just talk to musicians is solid. I've been in a lot of bands and it feels good to connect to people, and musicians connect with other musicians so you'll get good intel on bands you haven't otherwise heard of.
The ones throwing shade at them for selling you obviously don't understand how difficult it is to keep a small business going from the tax liabilities. I imagine if they could still be profitable and have the revenue stream needed they wouldn't be closing. It's their place and the decision was as well.
Charleston Music Hall does a few music things.
Colossus: The Forbin Project is perhaps my all-time favorite movie. I say this not because of the subtle and intricate yet fascinating and explosive good story you reveal in your interesting review, but because of the intelligence and power of Colossus and its ability to take control.
Artificial intelligence presently is growing rapidly and many smart people are concerned about the possible outcome so creatively and devastatingly portrayed in this film. So it is both timely and valuable that you have now uncovered and have again revealed Colossus because the story serves as an example of the way AI despite good intentions is a Pandora's box.
I'm not speaking out of fear for the future of humankind. The truth is quite the opposite. I work in artificial intelligence and I see it's the evolution of human intelligence. So I'm comfortable knowing the futures described in Colossus, Terminator, I,Robot and other films where the computer as you say "cause misery" is possible, highly probable, and will continue to be the subject of fascinating and fun films.
In fact, Colossus:The Forbin Project is so great a story that it is planned to be retold in an upcoming movie directed by the very talented Ron Howard. I'm enthusiastically looking forward to that big production and release because there are indications the script will include the entire Colossus trilogy!
You see, after Colossus takes over the world the story continues. Brilliant author D.F. Jones also gave us The Fall Of Colossus, and Colossus And The Crab to complete and dramatically end this amazing tale. Each of the titled paperbacks are still available online at Amazon and Ebay after a search of the author's name. I strongly suggest you obtain copies if your enjoyment of the film equals your curiosity to find out what happens at the end.
Yes, it is quite relavant. These days, I carry Colossus: the Forbin Project around with me all the time. I put it on my iPad and my iPhone so I can watch it anywhere and anytime to be deeply reminded of where AI and my work might be going. I think that first part of the story and that film is extraordinary so I'm glad your keen interest and your good work led you to it.
Millions of dollars for a "temporary bike lane" !
Build a new bridge without obstructing traffic flow and connect bike lanes form South Windermere and Highway 61.
"It’s on a state road in the city and would be paid for with money from the county’s half-cent sales tax."
NO I-526, a NO vote on the sales tas referendum, NO bike lane
