You had me at "pint of Guinness".
Chris Haire, CCP editor and former guitarist for Soundgarden... Fruit Brute no more.
If it came to pass, I wish that I could get fired like Juan Williams; that is with a $2M contract waiting at my other gig after I shoot my mouth off about this or that. Somehow I don't think that's in the cards for most people, certainly not me!
Sark. Yep. First time. As our dear editor Stephanie Barna said, I have now outed myself as a hairy, dirty hippie. Too bad I didn't wear a bandanna the day of the photo.
What REALLY scares me are guys scared of chicks in yoga pants. You never know what they are gonna do or what they are building in their garages.
Who else saw the picture accompaning this article and thought "THAT'S Chris Haire?" Is this the first time your picture has accompanied the article Chris, because I can't remember seeing it before?
Good post, Chris!
Still laughing from the mental picture of a "Yoga Pants Army of the Revolution"!
I seldom agree with Juan Williams, but he is a thoughtful commentator and is held in high regard by his peers. NPR did a poor job of handling this. His contract was up next spring, so why not quietly suspend him and cancel his contract renewal? Could it be that someone was trying to send a message to other left leaning journalists? Something like, "Toe the party line, or you'll end up like Juan?"
Spooky dude (and professional currency manipulator) George Soros donated a cool million bucks to NPR the same week Juan got canned. (He's also donated millions to Huffpo, Media Matters and the Tides Foundation)
What a coincidence................
Who knew that Fox hunting was legal in America?
Amen, you would think they would have learned from 2008!
Plus the Pixies, Reagan Youth, the Talking Heads... There's really no excuse for not liking good music in any particular period of time.
Oh, please. How young were you?
The late 80's were great. They Might Be Giants, Public Enemy, R.E.M., Ramones (well, past their prime I suppose), Camper Van Beethoven, Mojo Nixon...
Hmm. I guess that makes me the weird kid in this scenario, though. Winger was probably pretty damn normal.
Mat, come on, man. The late '80s were a real lowpoint in music for a schoolboy. I was too young for college rock, too happy for goth, and too full of testosterone to listen to listen to new jack swing.
Does it make it better if I say I never Poison? I suppose not.
Damn, you '80s hair metal. You're ruining my cred. And my political chances.
I stopped reading at the first point.
I mean, Winger?
Now I can't breathe.
Finally, something we can all agree on.
You think? Then you're really not going to like next week's cover story.
Just kidding. It has indeed jumped the shark. That is ... until Best of, when I'm sure it'll rear its ugly head again.
As for me, I like my copy with extra loogie.
How long is the City Paper going to run with this "story" about a column? Oh wait, I'd better not criticize because I wouldn't want you to spit in my copy of the CCP.
This crime is definitely a misdemeanor!
Talk about petty theft.................
This is great. Good job Chris.
Having watched the rally on facebook, I missed the "lily-whiteness" of the event. I saw persons of many ages and colors in attendance. I heard speakers of different faiths, and from various walks of life.
If Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s own niece was not only unoffended by the choice of date, but actually participated in the event, who am I to argue whether this was the "wrong day".
As an aside, I find it interesting that Rev. Sharpton's rally, held on this very same day, wasn't classified as "coal-black"...for the sake of the incredible fairness shown here...I mean...REALLY!
Chip already has "BDS"...
Does anyone remember "Bush Derangement Syndrome" and the media reports of citizen despair that were filed after the 2000 election was finally resolved?
I predict that we will soon be hearing reports about "Beck Derangement Syndrome".
