Re: “Nashville Recap: 'Two Sides to Every Story'

HAHAHAHA. Juliette was NONSTOP ENTERTAINMENT. Oh god I love her so much. How can Avery not just propose right there?!?

Maybe I'm just old, but was anyone else reminded of the scene in The Muppets Take Manhattan where Miss Piggy spies on Kermit in Central Park? Only she had Gregory Hines' roller skates instead of a Rascal. Would that this episode have concluded with a carriage ride and a musical dream sequence featuring all the lovable Nashville cast as babies. Creating a spinoff Saturday morning cartoon.

And I feel like you already used this metaphor, but hello! Of COURSE Scarlett loved Deacon's scraggly Christmas tree-- she IS the sad little tree from A Charlie Brown Christmas. Have you seen her hair extensions lately?!

(Full disclosure: I was perversely rooting for the Jayla hookup also.)

Bicentennial Mall is a perfect substitute for an imaginary outdoor ampitheater in East Nashville.

Re: “Nashville Recap: 'Two Sides to Every Story'

I've got to get over to east Nashville more often. I had no idea it was one big endless hipster music festival.

WinterShiny Funky Fresh Nashy Jam Jam!

It must be difficult to go incognito while you're riding your Hoveround, dressed like Michael Jackson, with your totes recognizable assistant in tow.

Is ZAG now SAG?

In the real world, it would take Will about 11 seconds to get laid, even in broad daylight at the Sparkly Wonderland Nashmas Festival of Lights.

I've embraced the soapiness of this show and will ride this wave until the end.

Re: “Radio Free Nashville: We're Bad, We're (Mostly) Citywide at 103.7 FM

Our hope is to improve the range of the signal over time, but at least this sign on of the 103.7 translator is a start, a 'foot in the door', so to speak.

Here's my unscientific analysis, i.e., cruising around town last weekend, listening at different points:

-Gallatin Ave out to East Nashville to Trinity Ln and back down Ellington Pky was very good.

-Downtown had its spots, but you can blame the tall buildings for that. Broadway was pretty rocking. . .

-440 corridor is solid up until you get past the overpass at I-65 toward I-24 and then it diminishes.

For our home listeners, a good FM receiver and antenna (preferably outdoors) is recommended. Nothing super fancy, most average home theater receivers with an external FM antenna input will do. Depending on your location, the simple wire dipole that came with your receive should suffice. Most of your older VHF/UHF TV antennas are tuned also for the FM broadcast band, which may work well for you.

Of course, a high gain FM 'yagi' antenna mounted on a 30 foot mast with a rotor to position the direction of said antenna would be ideal, but then all of us are not geeks, are we (uh, wait a second. . :) ) ?

Re: “Radio Free Nashville: We're Bad, We're (Mostly) Citywide at 103.7 FM

Listened to and from work, from Woodbine to downtown. Staticky on the way; loud and clear coming home, with a set of roadhouse blues tracks you never hear on the radio. Very exciting.

Now if only we could coax "Nashville Jumps" back on the air ...

Re: “Radio Free Nashville: We're Bad, We're (Mostly) Citywide at 103.7 FM

Hey Greg. I made a station ID for you and Ginny many years ago, and some fewer years ago promised Ginny that I would make another one; I did so, but forgot about it before I got a chance to send it, and have had a computer crash since then. I won't make any promises this time, but I will try to get something together.

Re: “Radio Free Nashville: We're Bad, We're (Mostly) Citywide at 103.7 FM

I work downtown and tried to listen in the car while out for lunch. Unfortunately the hiss and static made it unlistenable. Is signal quality expected to improve over time?

I'm a programmer also! We're very excited about this. Don't forget all the programmers you hear are volunteers and do this for the love of their shows and the radio medium...not a paycheck. We also need UNDERWRITERS if you need some radio "advertising" on the cheap. Check out my show and all the others. https://www.facebook.com/IndieBohemiansRFN

Re: “Dez Dickerson on Prince, Purple Rain, and the Most Insane Thing He's Seen on Stage

Dez, I remember fondly your pre-Prince days playing with Mike Valasquez at the Lamb's Club in St Paul. We were and are proud of what you've accomplished. I remember those jams in Mike's basement when you played with my great late friend John Johnson. Best of luck and appreciation with all you do.

Re: “Radio Free Nashville: We're Bad, We're (Mostly) Citywide at 103.7 FM

I am Greg J. Welsch, the general manager of RFN. We are extremely happy and proud that we have been able to take our signal citywide. As we state in our mission: "Believing that democracy cannot function if only a few have access to the media, Radio Free Nashville, Inc. (RFN) intends to be a community forum for the music, voices, and viewpoints generally ignored or misrepresented by the corporate media." This was something we have been working on for many years. Dave Weil was on the air at RFN with Pop Top from the first week we signed on in April, 2005 and been a huge supporter and part of our RFN family ever since. I am truly saddened that he won't able able to share a new "Pop Top" and the great music that never got any airplay on corporate radio with the Nashville community and be part of RFN citywide. Rest in peace, dear friend!

Dave was a bud, and will be truly missed--on the air and in the flesh.

Re: “An Obsessive's Love Letter to Vertigo, Now Playing at Belcourt

@Mr. Pink, the dinner-table scene in Shadow where Uncle Charlie reveals his true, murderous self never fails to chill. Frenzy is great, too, and if I recall right, the scenes that concern home-cooked or -stewed food are as horrifying as the main action. Shadow is def in my top 5 Hitch movies, too.

Re: “An Obsessive's Love Letter to Vertigo, Now Playing at Belcourt

@Mark: You may have a point about the public preferring Stewart in innocuous roles (after all, IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE was a dud on release). But Stewart played neurotic, often unlikable characters for much of the decade — most notably in Anthony Mann's great Westerns and in some of Hitchcock's biggest hits of the 50s (like REAR WINDOW and the remake of THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH, where he's a pretty hateful character — the scene where he drugs Doris Day is appalling).

@Edd: Ahh, Uncle Charlie. SHADOW OF A DOUBT's a top 5 Hitchcock for me — maybe the first of his meta-movies about voyeurism and the fascination of otherwise innocuous people with violence and murder. Jon Finch in the enormously disturbing FRENZY fits that category also.

Re: “An Obsessive's Love Letter to Vertigo, Now Playing at Belcourt

I love "Vertigo." Scotty is such a dupe, but I feel for him and his need for glamour and adventure. Hitchcock is great if not always deep, but I think Joseph Cotten in "Shadow of a Doubt" and Stewart in "Vertigo" go deeper. Hitchcock often deals in ambiguity that can be contrived, but his actors, from Cotten to Stewart to Grant and even Bruce Dern in "Family Plot," often add something beyond that.

Most of the butchered were Christians killing other Christians. The Bible embraces war,vengeance and slavery,everything the Civil War stood for.
