Re: “Shock and Awe: Naked Girls Reading Friday at Delinquent Debutantes

Does this establishment have a Sexually Oriented Business license? Do the women have permits issued by the licensing board?

For that matter, I have long contended that the Metropolitan Government itself, as operator of the Metropolitan Courthouse (with its much larger than life mural of a bare breasted woman on the west wall of the lobby), violates its own licensing ordinance by operating without an S.O.B. license.

(The licensing board was originally named the Adult-Oriented Establishment Licensing Board, but Chris Falwell, er, Ferrell, and his colleagues on the Metro Council decided to substitute a childish acronym.)

Well, Captain Beefheart and the Band are quite similar. Same sprung rhythms and uptight blues and so forth, Beefheart is a bit jazzier, maybe. I hear both influences in Lobos.

You really should only pretend to be me if you can actually be funny. Otherwise, it's just...weird. Must I show you how it's done...AGAIN?

Re: “Nashville Recap: ‘I Feel Sorry for Me’

Ha, but Cass Elliot does not deserve your snark. A great singer, a great fat person, and an artist. She does not belong in this awful television show, even by extension. Someone has to occasionally stand up for something resembling respect, even in This Vale of Smart-Asses.

yoyo's poor attempt at wit. Where on earth did this dummy get the idea to pretend to speak as theRevelator? Why must clever allude him so? BTW - everybody knows who is writing, dummy.

Re: “Nashville Recap: ‘I Feel Sorry for Me’

Mama Cass! Big Pun! A half finished friendship bracelet... Perfection. I also love drunk Avery. And ugh, TAMMY.

Sadie Stone is the first new character in a long while I've actually been entertained by and I hope sticks around. She's the first breath of fresh air since Liam. I cannot believe I miss Liam and his emo scarves. God this show. THANK YOU for pointing out how ludicrous the Thelma and Louisey car chase scene was after Rayna ALMOST DIED a year ago!!! Wouldn't Sadie have known that? Those memorial vigils were all over the teevee. I wish they had made a Dukes of Hazzard joke though. I almost thought they were going to have them jump a gulch in slow motion.

Re: “Metro Pulse Dissolved After 23 Years

The word "alternative" when applied to newspapers is usually something out of Orwell. Take the Nashville Scene -- what is it an alternative to?

Re: “Metro Pulse Dissolved After 23 Years

The business plan of obsessive Campfield chasing, ironic history pieces, and love for Americana music apparently wasn't a success. Never meant a reporter who understood accounting or business. Interesting that the only thing that makes dying old media look healthy is wheezing urban alternative media coughing up pithy irony pieces. Suburbia culture is winning. Cas Walker and his people have won.

I had some business cards made up with the words "Bereft of Logic. Hostile to Facts." This is my last attempt to get a job with the Democratic Party. If this doesn't work, I'll drop the cards off at Jim Cooper's office as a donation.

I still can't believe that after all the studies and scientific evidence, nutritionists are still loudly proclaiming that low fat is the way to go.

Re: “Cooper Denounces Voter ID in Wake of GAO Report

I remember only the republicon revision of history. (Everything just makes sense that-a-way.) Roger Ailes tells me what to think AND how to feel about it. I got this stuff down pat. It provides a narrative that is effective in smearing our president. See how patriotic I am.

Re: “Charter Schools Enter Fray in East Nashville Plan

Well john, private options are just the ultimate in CHOICE-POWER, now aren't they?

It takes money to make money. It takes money to get higher quality in an arena of competition, which is what private and ultimately charter options are designed for. You want less money spent on education, one must wonder why? Never mind, I simply do not trust your answer will be the truth.
Charters and vouchers will disproportionately drain sorely needed funds from tragically underfunded public schools, leaving them even less desirable then you perceive them to be today. Hence you will produce a more permanent undereducated economically deprived class. But being that you have no true concern for your fellow man, what do you care. You would accomplish n ideological victory for the Latter Day Anarchists whose ultimate desire is to privatize everything.
What's good for business is good for America, just ask the slaves o old!

Re: “After 40 years of reinventing R&B and rock 'n' roll, Los Lobos remain hungry

Totally disagree about KIKO. It may be their best work. The album is a few songs too long but that does not make it "negligible." KIKO is far more avante garde than COLOSSAL HEAD. The band sounds unfocused on COLOSSAL HEAD which directly results in subpar songs and an inconsistent sound. And "The Lady and the Rose" is a below average folk song that has no place on TIN CAN TRUST, an otherwise great rock n roll record. Los Lobos have always reminded of The Band as they are that good and they encompass all types of American music. They have never reminded me of Captain Beefheart.
