Re: “A black girl on Gentrification Street

If it makes you feel any better, I do believe the Plaza Midwood growth can best be attributed to sprawl and the growth of residential units in what was formerly a commercial area.

Re: “Joseph Michael Mahfoud

THE Listening Room in the Southeast. If you are looking for an intimate setting, where the sound actually matters, The Evening Muse is that venue. Period.
Genre's are singer/songwriter, folk, country, blues, latin, alt, rock, its just the best place to hear exciting new artists and established ones as well. A MUST go-to for any live music fan. Never a bad show. And by the way, Joseph Michael Mahfoud has soul...I've seen SRV many times, and he would also agree with that assessment.

Re: “Will Puckett bids farewell to the Queen City

I was part of the villa heights community organization when that Cordelia Park mural was done and I must disagree with Jenna's statement. We applied for a matching grant from the city for this and both Will and especially his wife put in countless hours helping us fundraise so that we could have a nice neighborhood art project. Everyone from the community was invited to participate in the art work.

Re: “Why do people hate Dave Matthews?

I read every comment, I found the discourse interesting, ridiculous, uplifting and scary. For those high and mighty 'I know good music and this is bad' as was said in one comment its an art form. So you like abstract but hate realism or vice-versa...that doesn't mean the artist who created it is crap. By voicing your negativity, all you are really doing is voicing the personal frustrations you have of other things in your life.
Do you really, honestly care that much ab about your hate? On your deathbed will you reach for hate or remember those you have loved?
You know that answer, let love be the guide as you truly know you get what you give. So love the music you love, no reason to spend the energy spewing hate for an art form that doesn't appeal. Enjoy your life.

Great observations, Titus. Thanks for posting!

Re: “Mad Max: Fury Road: Fast & Furious

I realize I'm commenting on a lot of your reviews today but it makes me laugh that there were some people so outraged by the egalitarian quality of this movie. I doubt they really watched any of the others because let's be real: The Road Warrior and Beyond Thunderdome are not movies filled with powerful men and helpless women. In Road Warrior, the women are the protectors and fighters and Thunderdome has Tina fucking Turner (real name) as one of the best leaders ever. She's not just some queen sitting in her castle commanding pawns; she's down there in the dust fighting with the rest of them. We should all convince George Miller to make a movie with Furiousa and Auntie Entity joining forces. Make my little Mad Max fangirl heart go all a-flutter!

Also, if those who oppose this movie bothered to watch it and then judge, they'd see it's a movie where everyone is robbed of their autonomy, the war boys included.

Re: “Suicide Squad: Suicide Prevention

The reaction of the people who think that DC is being unfairly attacked is pure gold. I found myself scrolling through some cap-locked filled comments section where screams of "bias of an unprecedented nature" bounced around the echo chamber like wayward arrows. Good lord, folks. I love to get super passionate about things that have no real consequence as much as the next weirdo but calm down. I wonder how many of them would tell people of color protesting police brutality or women decrying rape culture that they're being oversensitive and need to grow a pair.

I am so thankful to have known you both and your beautiful girls. So happy I have one of your gourds on my patio that we enjoy every day. Thank you for the experience and we await the next chapter from all four of you...Will, Lauren, Eva James and Disco Ruby Soux.

Re: “Will Puckett bids farewell to the Queen City

Jenna, you are incorrect on how much he got paid, and honestly why does it matter? NoDa, other neighborhoods, and galleries are made more rich by having this kind of art. I am certain the hours, days, weeks he spent creating his art are worth more.

Re: “Will Puckett bids farewell to the Queen City

Everyone would be shocked if they knew how much he got paid for these murals. (Some $50k each)

Some of them are good (Jack Beagles) and some of them are practically theft from neighborhood coffers (Cordelia Park lookout).

Re: “Why do people hate Dave Matthews?

He tries so hard to be cool and hip and different that his music is just a discordant, pretentious cacophony...that's pretty much the gist of it

Re: “Three Questions For Penny Craver, co-founder of Dish

HATELIARS must be a resident of a filing cabinet. You have no clue what this woman has brought to Charlotte, let alone Plaza Midwood. She is an icon and helps more people than most likely anyone in the area. As for the restrooms, I have used either one on many occasions. So obviously you don't know the community like you know how to be a bitch. Get out and meet the people and maybe you will be a little less angry.

Re: “Three Questions For Penny Craver, co-founder of Dish

First of all I wish the day would come when people could NOT post anything without their identity being verified. Let me start with my name which is Shakti Ganapati Subramanian. Penny Craver has been a part of numerous Charlotte scenes over the years. Drummer in a band with some legendary Charlotte musicians, managed the Tremont Music Hall and of course as the owner of The Dish. The food is wonderful as are the owner and staff. As for "gender neutral" bathrooms, let me fill you in on something. Like Penny Craver says, all are welcome so long as they don't pee on the seat. Also there are several small venues that have had two bathrooms, each with only one toilet. When I see someone who has to go, and there have been many times when there were women who had to use the bathroom and the only available one was the men's room, I'd tell the woman to use the men's room and then stand guard until they exited. If some guy wanted to use the men's room I'd just say: "Sorry but there's a woman in there" and that is all that was needed. So layoff with your BS comments. Before you post anything further how about you show some intestinal fortitude (guts) and post your real names.
