Re: “How do we reconcile Charles Manson's influence on Hollywood?

"Like most hypocritical people, I have an intermittent fascination with the sensationalistic true crime-y network shows that evaporate after a brief epiphany of how wrong it is to be watching said shows."

What is up with these adjectives?? Wow. Editing staff must've hit the bar early (not shaming - just envious). The only thing I get from this is that you're more interested in proving you own a thesaurus than in communicating.

Anyway, as to Manson: he orchestrated horrific murders and people, who mostly do not commit murders, are fascinated. This doesn't make us complicit. It makes us curious. Should it make people uncomfortable? Damn right. But not exploring the darker side of human nature won't make it go away. Probably the contrary is true.

Want to remain guilt free? Watch whatever you want, just don't murder people. Foolproof.

Re: “How do we reconcile Charles Manson's influence on Hollywood?

The CA. PAROLE Board and the (Kangeroo Court- 2ND. Dist. Court Of Appeals-LA,CA) are now cinsidering freeing Manson killer Leslie Van Houten.How would you like to have her as your neighbor? If Manson doesn't remain in the public eye people will forget his vucious acts,and free his killers.It's people like me protesting,and signing petitions that keep these killers in prison.Why don't you join in the war to keep them in prison where they belong? I am a freedom advocate whom was falsely declated a "Vexatious Litugant". (SEE IN RE:Luckett,283 CAL.RPTR.312 (1991).

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm Newbie: RelationShep edition

Bottom line. I doubt Shep is reciting Shakespeare when he is zigzagging his way home from the nearest watering hole he frequents when be isn't being being paid to clean up and find his soul mate.. Perhaps, Shep should stop concerning himself about finding.that intelligent, well bred partner and think about how intelligent he sounds after another wasted night of drinking his inheritance away. Not to mention his brain cells. After all, I am sure these well read women he dreams about want more out of life then that. Perhaps another show called Rehabilishep?

Re: “How do we reconcile Charles Manson's influence on Hollywood?

You people won't stop writing these dumb articles on him. Won't stop putting him in the news every day. His influence comes from the media saying "hey. look at this man!" and the kids notice him and wonder why he's getting so much attention and they hone in one him.

Then a new wave of kids tune into him, and then you people write "why does Manson still have followers" articles, and those articles catch the attention of a new wave of kids, and a vicious cycle.

What it boils down to is that you news sites are a bunch of vultures, and you write idiotic articles about this man because they get hits. Then you put your embedded ads all over them (three ads I see) and you watch the nickels roll in.

Maybe instead of asking this question, perhaps just stop putting Manson in the news and he will fae away. You media vultures perpetuate it and have caused this phenomena of "Manson".

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm Newbie: RelationShep edition

A horse, a horse, a kingdom for a horse . This is the winter of our discontent . Get thee to a nunnery. Holy mackerel. Sorry. I cant swallow these dames at a young age who dont know Shakespeare. I took an honors English class when I was a senior in HS. A public HS. Okay, Im from NYC. Maybe that has something to do with it. But, this was very difficult to read and makes me ashamed of my sex. Now, Im from a different generation and grew up in NYC. Still. Shepard is well read, so no excuse for these girls. A bunch of air heads. I also have read Charles Bukowski. Also the classics. How about throwing in some Hermann Hesse, Thomas Mann, John Dos Passos, Sinclair Lewis. We do exist. Not that Im bragging. BUT, since moving down here, I feel like a Rhodes Scholar and that is scary.

Poor Shep. Maybe he will get lucky in NYC. Maybe. Perhaps he should look where these girls went to school. Their parents background. In away I think he is doing the right thing. Ask if they know anything about Shakespeare. Or any writers that are pretty obvious, and that he has read. Also, about art and film. From the start, I always thought Shep was extremely bright. Hmm. I wonder if he reads these comments:) I could tell right away by his use of vocabulary and some of his wisecracks. And he is a good friend.

He definitely needs to date someone older. She has to be at least 30. They are still very fertile. He is wasting his time with these 20 somethings. And, looks do count, but they all dont have to be 10s and skinny. Get a girl with some curves. And one with some brains for goodness sake . The looks fade very fast. There has to be chemistry, but the more you get to know them, he will be surprised. His problem, is he has been going out with pretty air heads. He gets bored. Duh.

Re: “Could the crush of development mean curtains for the peninsula's theaters?

Sadly, these issues are nothing new. The arts community in Charleston has been struggling with the same questions and the same space / occupancy issues since the mid-1990s. As the director of the Arts Council who led a visionary study in 1994 which identified exactly the same questions, I've seen and heard all the issues. In Charleston, we have a dearth of affordable real estate, and lack neglected industrial areas which are the typical areas where arts projects flourish. Arts incubators like the one in Alexandria, Virginia started in industrial buildings in depressed areas. Charleston has lacked any sort of downtrodden area with masses of abandoned spaces into which the arts community could blossom. There was a slight glimmer with John Knott and the Noisette development in North Charleston...but that was a non-starter. As your article points out, it requires a rainmaker with capital to front the restoration expense of a neglected building. While Charleston has had a number of people who have funded the arts for years, these benefactors are passing on. And even if an organization had a benefactor, the organization still must have the ability to financially sustain a space after development - and ticket prices rarely account for more than a fraction of the cost of upkeep. I have hoped that Enough Pie will stimulate development in the Neck. Sadly, the desire for a clustered mixed arts district remains elusive in our community.
