Re: “'CL' Music Issue 2017

Today I randomly picked up a Creative Loafing and read Mark Kemp's Editor's Note in this week's issue. I just want to say a big THANK YOU for your musical coverage turn around. I stopped reading Creative Loafing several years ago specifically because the local coverage had dropped off dramatically. The music scene is truly vibrant here in Charlotte and I am ridiculously excited to hear about the plans you and the Creative Loafing staff have for your future music scene coverage. I used to be a dedicated Creative Loafing reader and I'm looking forward to becoming one again.

Re: “Remembering Stevie Ray Vaughan - 20 years later

I was, also, at the 7/7/90 concert in Holmdel. I was lucky enough to first sit in the lighting booth with Eddie, the lighting guy, and his girl Laura, who was my friend. I was also on his bus that afternoon and got to meet him as I was exiting his bus. Then, after he was finished playing, Eddie, Laura and I walked across the stage to sit stage right for Joe...I just sat down on the black stage luggages when the bandshell fell! I had just walked under it! The concert went on but SRV was freaking backstage! About halfway through Joe's stint, SRV came over to Eddie, Laura and me to discuss the damage with Eddie. He had calmed down by then and stayed with us until Joe was finished......memory of a lifetime!

"Fan reaction fell heavily on the side of the Panthers."
"Among Panthers fans, Olsen's comments inspired indifference."

Without sourcing these two statements, they're nothing but stupid talk out of your ass.

Re: “The night Dickey Betts broke my guitar

Dear god I hope this is strictly satirical otherwise it is nothing more than sheer rock-and-roll blaspheme. Most guys would chop off their left nut to have THE Dickey Betts play their axe. Shit, I wouldn't care what he did with it, just to meet that man let alone watch him play your own instrument would be an absolute honor. Stick to your eye-liner, glam-rock garbage if you can't appreciate one of the greatest guitarists going, belonging to, in Bill Graham's words, "the greatest rock and roll band in the world"

Re: “Older men, younger boys

The reality is that the young man is 18. He is no longer a child. Before our modern society, girls were mothers at 16. Don't blame biology for your psychological shortcomings. However, with that said, we live in a society that we have collectively and organically created and accepted. As well as parents desiring to keep their offspring under their wings a bit longer than our furthest ancestors. Therefore, certain modalities and standards become higher priorities to uphold, which agreeably force certain conditions in nature to be sacrificed. At the same wrong to chastise or demoralize behaviors that have been imbedded in our DNA for hundreds of thousands of years. Have a much better understanding of where to draw the line and how to deal with situations that cross it without resorting to limited knowledge and emotional reactions.

Re: “Eight Reasons To Hate My Home State

Shouldn't someone who writes for a paycheck know the difference between LESS/LEAST (amount) and FEWER/FEWEST (quantity)? Ms. Jionde makes the mistake at least twice. Here, let me provide the proofreading:

"FEWER" hospitals in rural areas.

"the schools with the FEWEST resources and opportunities."

Also, "bussed" means "kissed". The word you're looking for is "bused".

Re: “Eight Reasons To Hate My Home State

I look forward to more lessons on oppression bullshit from this new ...contributor. Lets see, complain about obesity and lack of healthy food, yet turn around and praise 5$ junk food. I expect nothing less from someone who can't distinguish a left turn from a u-turn. And of course blame Trump because, Trump. CL hope you can find contributors who have something to offer, other than the usual angry,"victims" who need to tell everyone how racist they and pretty much everything in the world is towards black people.

Re: “Eight Reasons To Hate My Home State

Charlotte is a fantastic and vibrant City I'm just not sure that someone that's 23 years old and can't pass a driver's test is really ready to live in the city of Charlotte maybe you should move somewhere where you don't have to drive. And that's my only comment about your column everything else you said was useless banter .

Re: “New Cuts and Bad Blood at Google Fiber Raise Questions About Future

This paints a very accurate picture of how TVCs are treated in the CLT, RDU and ATL markets. I was a TVC in the Raleigh market and things were/are just as toxic. And here's a newsflash...I'm not an millennial! I never felt entitled, but I did expect to be respected and treated like a human. I moved my family across the country to take this job (on my own dime), and I couldn't take it anymore after six months. After constantly being analyzed, criticized and scrutinized by my narcissistic, sociopathic boss, who has no business being in the cable industry, enough was enough. I could see the writing on the wall, and got out.

I know being laid off is never easy for anyone, but in this instance it seems to have been a blessing in disguise.

Re: “New Cuts and Bad Blood at Google Fiber Raise Questions About Future

Local woman learns Google is a business and not a non-profit. News at 11.

Seriously, you millennials need to learn that you are not entitled to anything; if you knew it was temporary job, then you knew it wasn't going to last. Now please go back to actually contributing to society rather than being butt hurt and creating sensational journalism.

Re: “Eight Reasons To Hate My Home State

Where to even start with this garbage? I'm not going to comment on you doing a U-Turn if it wasn't allowed. You're 23 years old, no excuse! Not to mention TWO of your reasons are ONLY because of something alcohol related? Wow. First world problems my dear.

1. There is already a bill in the works to change this law. It wasn't "Just ruled". The case was in 1979! I don't condone rape, but maybe women should be more careful with who they "consent" with before they have to "change their mind". If you have to change your mind during sex, maybe you need to be more careful judging who you pull your panties down for. If the man starts to hurt the woman during sex, and she says no, they CAN be found guilty of other crimes such as assault, etc. So they're not going to get away scot free if the woman has proof and doesn't wait 30 years to say something.

2. Rural is called "rural" exactly for that reason. There's less of everything. If people don't like that, move to the city! Accessibility is what makes the city grow! On the opposite side of the coin, you have people complaining about how "urban sprawl" is taking over. You can't have it both ways.

3. Maybe those without ID shouldn't be voting huh? You hear all about voter fraud these days. It's not hard to get a state issued ID, even if you don't drive. It's not rocket science and not expensive. Provided you're here LEGALLY of course. Ohhh wait, you want illegals voting?
I bet those who claim they "can't afford it", are the same ones who are on food stamps but blow money on beer and cigarettes anyway.

4 -5. I don't have children and I graduated long ago so I don't know much about the schools here. However, I can say, Have you seen the behavior of 99% of these so called "economically disadvantaged" children? Maybe those "brownest" of the kids are also the ones who cause the most trouble? Ohh wait I guess that's racist to say such a thing? Throwing money at them isn't going to help that's for sure, regardless of color. Education is as much of a parent responsibility as it is the schools themselves. Again, look at the how these families are that have the kids failing. 99% of them don't take responsibility as parents. The school can only do much, and as I said earlier, throwing money at isn't going to help.

6. Obama only won 49% of the popular vote in 2008 and only 48% in 2012 in NC. Your point is?

7-8 If you bought your liquor on Saturday, having it on Sunday wouldn't be a problem. That simple! Or even better. A fascist state?? All because of alcohol? REALLY? Maybe you want to look up your definition of "Fascism".
