Re: “Heavy Metal or Hate?

Defender9 and Brad: Don't act like we are a bunch of idiots that don't understand what he was doing with this article...I got it and would like to say that his point WAS made about liberals always associating white southerners with racism...great point taken and this point has been said since I was in elementary school, find a new point to make. If any of these bands wanted to make a political point they would have at the show...why can't we just have ONE THING not tainted by political satire.

Our generation has to deal with all this hate and political unease in the years to come...so let us have a few hours of pure entertainment without your baby boomer asses saying anything political!

Re: “Heavy Metal or Hate?

Again it is frustrating to read that Jack supporters think the satire 1. went over our heads and 2. makes it ok to write this article. What this boils down to is was it a clever, well written, funny piece?...and frankly it wasn't. I would agree with posters above and say that if Jack is truly a serious VT fan then you owe ALL the bands an apology in the City Paper and personal emails to them as well. It would also be nice if you parodied people and events that actually made sense. Your assumption that metal fans are only a bunch of whites is incorrect. These bands have toured the World (literally) and I can confidently say that I have probably seen BTBAM perform over 50 times and I can tell you that the audience is very diverse.

We all understand that you are trying to be a clever, humorous journalist but it didn't work this time! You and your supporters are just upset that we called you out on how truly not funny this piece was. And to your supporters--read our posts before commenting PLEASE WE GET ITS SATIRE WE JUST DONT THINK IT'S FUNNY!

Re: “Heavy Metal or Hate?

For all you Jack lovers...we understand that he was making fun of MSNBC (well most of us do at least)...here is the problem...it would have been nice if in all of his satire he stated that MSNBC are idiots and the bands from last night are wonderful, hardworking musicians. There is such a thing as southern hospitality and respect and it saddens me to think that these bands will probably not return because he couldn't simply make it COMPLETELY CLEAR that he was mocking MSNBC. Reporters might not have to be respectful but southerners are EXPECTED to be!

Re: “Heavy Metal or Hate?

I thought that journalism required extensive research and it was not based on your personal opinions but on the facts. This article is the farthest thing for being accurate. In times like today where EVERYTHING is political it is wonderful to have a show that brings together people for STRICTLY ENTERTAINMENT purposes.

If you took the time to talk to the people attending the show you would understand that they were there to listen to incredible musicians who are incredibly nice and are the farthest thing from political, racist or any of your other EXTREMELY INCORRECT ASSUMPTIONS of these musicians.

You sir must be free lance and have had a loss for any REAL news worthy stories to have writen this article. You owe these bands an apology, I personally know that they come from wonderful families and are more accepting than apparently you. If the site of a group of "scruffy, bearded" artists startles you then you are far more narrow-minded and filled with hate than those at the show last night.

You are the WORST example of a conservative (coming from a conservative) who has slandered a group of WONDERFUL people.

Your sarcasism is not funny when it degrades talented hard working people...It doesn't go over our heads Karl, we just have more respect for people!!!!!!!!
