Lovely home. A bit light on the greenery, though. The 'garden' could use a bit of jackhammering.

Re: “Danny McBride told Stephen Colbert he bought a house in Charleston after Bill Murray gave him the hard sell

Since he bought a house here to live in part time, I see a new winner of the Best Local Actor award.

Re: “The Exposure Myth

Maria Brophy's approach works well. I also am connected with a number of nonprofits - and from the nonprofit side, understand the pressure to ask. The most effective asks really do consider benefits to everyone in the relationship (including other nonprofits in the community who may not be directly affected by the fundraiser). If you want stuff, be nice about it. And don't pout and be punitive if you don't get your way.

Re: “Making a case for a downtown movie theater

awesome idea!!! given the rush to close everything that would be practical to locals let's start an online pledge drive to have a movieplex. given that the one on james island just closed to build an apartment complex and the downtown area can't support a grocery store because no one lives there lets...Hooray. pretend that we can have a place to watch what everyone watches at home and won't support. Hooray, we have no idea about economics. i want to be a journalist with my head up my ass. I love those picture shows.... Hooray.

Re: “Making a case for a downtown movie theater

The guys who own & run the Terrace should run the theater downtown. They do such a fabulous job! It is close to home but I would love to have the movie going experiences I had as a child seeing movies on King street again, too.

Re: “Making a case for a downtown movie theater

I felt the same way. This particular theater is why I fell in love with Charleston in the first place during military leave and why I decided to relocate after service. Cinebarre is nice but this to me was nicer because of it's nostalgia. I too was wondering it's cost to reopen.

Isn't anyone sick of drunk dick wagging,(past their prime) losers. Oh yeah they have money, old money is tired and boring. The information age has made just about everything more interesting.

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm Newbie: Letting Ourselves Down

Good night, I agree with Patricia for once. Dinner party meet cutes work. They do.

When I was in my late 20s-early 30s in Charleston we had "Supper Club" once a month on a Wednesday night. You had to be legally single, you could bring a friend but not a date, and you had to dress nicely and show up if you RSVP'd that you would. We met at various restaurants around town. The restaurants would offer a special or a couple of free hors d'oeuvres. It was started by some lawyers in town and was by invite only. It fell apart after a great four or five year run, when someone from N Chasn took over the reigns and put a freaking ad in the paper! When it was all phone trees and emails and word of mouth invites, the method was seamless and fun and a few marriages came out of the experience.

It just hit me that we were kinda the Southern Charmers of the early 1990s! We had movers and shakers, people with money and boats and beach houses, and we went on boat rides and drank a LOT and met up at houses and docks for parties ... I was the poor chick they let ride along because I had organization skills, sat on the committee for the March of Dimes Bid for Bachelors, and looked good in a bikini! LOL, hahahahaha

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm Newbie: Letting Ourselves Down

Oh Dustin, your hilarious recaps are more entertaining than the show! Your witty quips: "Whitney is merely studying our species." "Child, you can speak, " ..."which I didn't think could be uttered without a church fan in your hand." ...priceless! The dinner with Austen and his parents where his Mom barks out "Can we talk now?" was a hoot! Equal parts Corleone, Tony Soprano and Joan Rivers. I love these flawed, but highly fun to watch people and I'm addicted to your writing! (Just want to assure you I'm not a demented fan and don't have any voodoo dolls in my closet!)

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm Newbie: The Pain of Memory

Oh please I need a doll too!Larry has to be a permanent on SC!!!
On to Thomas and Landon,this is a damm shame what was done to Kathryn.iam sorry but her cast mates drove her down that dark road of drugs.
Thomas instead of still looking for a mate you should reconcile with KD you have 2children and a big plus she loves you. will not find that coming around again. Thomas your the blame for your baby's Mommy's drug trouble&you capitalized on it! SHAME on you! Those kids deserve a great family home. Give it to them and Kathryn&stop chasing psycho Landon she's weird!!! Talk about taking over your assets with no prenup! Thomas your just as troubled if u believe in Landon's trust,then u do deserve each other!!!!

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm Newbie: The Pain of Memory

All I can say is wow. I was at a small fundraiser Friday night and met a nice young man, who will remain anonymous, and it turned out, he hangs out with most of these characters..and yes, that is what I call them that. Actually, Chelsea was there. She is very pretty. Sans Austen. Hmm. A charity event and he could not come with her?? It was downtown. Not expensive. He could not dish out the money for a good cause? I actually found out the crew is cheap. Oh Oh. But I got a mouthful and I was not surprised. If Landon and Thomas end up together, they deserve each other. I loved the week before when Thomas was at Stars, and a girl said "who is that old guy"? He does not realize his age because he does not hang out with people his own age. Doesn't he have any friends his own age for God' sake????? My Goodness. He still thinks he is 30. I know I am not 30 anymore. Not that I don't like talking to younger people. Age is just a number. But...there is a limit.

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm Newbie: The Pain of Memory

Great recap.
These people all need to learn some basic manners and tact. O.o I know it's all for the show, but sincerely, kindness matters.
I love the HooDoo part of the episode! I grew up in Pinopolis, and in The Corner (Moncks Corner for you non-BC [Berkeley County] people) we had a HooDoo/VooDoo guy. He lived near the middle school. He had pie tins hanging from the tree in his front yard and a bottle tree, of course, ... he also sold liquor on Sundays, back during the Blue Law days. In order to be allowed to purchase said alcohol you had to know the password. The password was - you had to knock three times and say "fried chicken" three times. I know this because I, the SLED agent's daughter would go there with the Mayor's son and the Sherriff's son (the only one we were missing was the preacher's son, but he was a pussy) to purchase illegal drinks for all of us to indulge in whilst waterskiing in the Hatchery.
You gotta love the Lowcountry of SC!
