Re: “Who Run the World? Girls

Can't wait for our trip to NOLA! It's true -- all things great in life incorporate my "flosse posse" -- Hopefully we will have our necklaces by then!

Um, I don't think Harry Potter World is part of Disney World. It is part of Universal.
Just sayin'.

Re: “Not so Sunday funday

It appears the author's constant state of inebriation is starting to affect her cognition, as this piece contains at least two grammatical errors:

= There ARE not one, but two trolleys

= ...spotted faves for the boyfriend and ME

Sista needs AA, not brunch.

Re: “25 going on 30

I just moved here and I'm petrified of the dating scene. Being 56 sure doesn't help. Also, the plural of ex is exes.

Try swing dancing. Take a look at the Lindy Focus and GottaSwingCharlotte Facebook groups.

Re: “A new Craft

I'm not one to turn down an invite to kick back a few cold ones at OMB, but this columnist's repetitive narrative of drunkenness - including getting so smashed she can't even remember an interview she's getting paid to conduct - is becoming disturbing. I don't think Charlotte needs Alcoholic Pornography, which is the gig Ms. Spruill seems determined to succeed at.

Re: “New LGBT bar, Cathode Azure, opens in South End

Every gay person in Charlotte knows how few choices there are with regard to gay clubbing/nightlife here, so it's no surprise that a place like Cathode Azure isn't trying too hard. And given how small the venue is, this sad state of affairs might be just as well. Sadly, once a newer place opens--and one always eventually does--I have a feeling this joint will go the way of all that have come before it (think Marigny, Velocity, Genesis, Stonewall, The Garden and Gun Club, etc). Now, mind you, the physical space of Cath Az, despite being a bit challenged in the square footage department, isn't bad. The problem is more with the music--and therefore the general atmosphere, which, alas, is nothing new when it comes to Charlotte gay clubs. For some reason, club managers and DJs in this area seem afraid to risk playing anything cutting-edge or little known, which true, hardcore, regular club-goers want to hear. Instead, they opt for what they think is safer stuff--such as "dance remixes" of the radio's top 40 hits, which might be fine if the idea is to cater only to those occasional nightlifers who are afraid to dance to anything they haven't heard before. Too often, though, this just leads to sets filled with bad versions of pop songs that were never originally meant to be high-energy dance numbers. It also leads to jarring, inappropriate shifts in tempo, energy and mood--not unlike listening to the radio. It's no way to carry a crowd into blissful surrender on the dance floor, which any DJ worth his or her salt should strive to do. When Charlotte DJs should be giving clubbers meaty stuff, perhaps a bit dark, perhaps a bit deep, instead they offer only airy fluff with no substance. And the DJs at Cathode Azure are among the worst offenders as far as this goes. Their sets are filled with two-minute ditties that bounce erratically across the spectrum from R&B to hip hop to bubble gum pop to--well, you get the picture. And if they veer away from the current radio fare, it's only to dredge up the most overplayed, worn-out hits from yesteryear. Sadly, most Charlotteans are so inured to this being the norm that they just ride it out as best they can...until, of course, the next new club opens. It's only a matter of time before Cathode Azure goes the way of those that preceded it because the likelihood of its management staff making any changes is slim to none.
