Re: “A geek's guide to understanding Watchmen

No wonder the world terrorist CIA being involved in many 'SUPER HERO' movies with propaganda America the 'Saving Legend of Entire World' & Russia the destroyer of the world.
The American citizens need to understand their country is making fake propagandas for its killings in the name of "War on Terror".
You need to know how many afghas were raped, tortured, murdered by the american psychopath military mercenary dogs before you know how many innocent civilians the
IRON MAN superhero saved.
US created, funded Osama & ISIS for its own interests. The Hollywood is the biggest propaganda for the CIA for its terrorist operations,

i hope Creative Loafing encourages a healthy discussion on this website from all sides of the conversation, will allow DISCUSSIONS on Violence, racism and personal attacks that were deployed behind the so-called "Hollywood" propaganda movies :)

Re: “In the streets: Brass Connection

Brass connection band is a fraud - I booked them for a party and not only did they not show up but no one even bothered to call to let me now.  And now they are giving me the run around to give me my deposit back.  DO NOT BOOK THIS  BAND.  They are dishonest

Re: “Andy the Doorbum declares an art war on Charlotte

I was only trying to make Charlotte more like I would have liked it to be and encourage others to do the same however they saw fit. Of course, by getting out there I was promoting my own ideas, as well as those who participated, but I was also trying to open a door for others to feel fearless about doing that themselves. I certainly never intended to come off as some high and mighty know-it-all and never intended any cultural appropriation in my costume and painting ideas, though they were inspired in part by the Native American cultures of which my Great Grandfather was a member. I hate that some took it this way, but ultimately, what's done is done and I have no desire to look back with regrets. I miss Charlotte and hope that it is treating everyone well, including the critics in these comments. All the best to all of you.

Re: “Breaking the Moon musical brings light to dark side

How could one put such power into words? To have seven teenagers perform a musical that could evoke so much emotion in such a short time is just incredible. Amy's writing, the songs, the performance were all amazing, all the while promoting an awareness of so many issues and pressures young people face. Definitely a must see for teens and adults alike.

Re: “Breaking the Moon musical brings light to dark side

I can't stress enough how important this show is. It tackles incredibly difficult subject matter in such a beautiful way. I sat in awe of the talent and bravery of the 7 kids. This should be seen by every single middle or high school student! The music will fill your soul. You will leave enlightened, challenged,touched by the experience. Treat yourself to art at its finest!

Re: “Breaking the Moon musical brings light to dark side

Fantastic show, I laughed, I cried (a lot!), I remembered my own painful teenage years and watched in amazement as these young actors demonstrated the struggles kids today face with such power and poignancy. Such an important show, with the potential to help so many realize they are not alone and there is help.

Re: “Breaking the Moon musical brings light to dark side

An absolutely amazing group of teens performing stunning music and telling heartbreaking, but very real stories. Come and be filled with "Hope", "Grace", and "Light".

Re: “Breaking the Moon musical brings light to dark side

I really loved this show! The combination of so many great talents made me feel like I was right there, just listening to these teens talk about so many deeply personal issues, the way teens only do with eachother. The whole thing brought me right back to high school, reminding me how tough it is at that age, and how important it is that we can form some kind of dialogue with teenagers. This musical does that! I just wish that it would've been around when I was in high school!

Re: “Breaking the Moon musical brings light to dark side

Young adulthood is a harrowing journey. Breaking The Moon does a beautiful job echoing all the painful, confusing and intimate lessons we learn along the way.

Beautiful songs, wonderful acting, brave young people making important art. My sons and I were fortunate to have this extraordinary experience shared with us. We loved the show.
