Re: “Love-Hate Mail

I used to look forward to each issue,but the last several issues have been a disappointment.The calibre of writing has deteriorated to scandal sheet level.several colums that I enjoyed have been dropped,and I see the whole premise heading towards the Rage or MetroMix,whatever it is called now.We do'nt need another upscale suckup publication.Bring back the Scene that we looked forward to.

Re: “Love-Hate Mail

Then explain what this sentence means. To me it implies that you have made out with someone. "On the other hand, I haven't made out with anyone working at The Red Door East and most of those folks know my name." How does making out with someone working at a bar have anything to do with this story?

Re: “Love-Hate Mail

If wanted "revenge" against someone I wouldn't use a newspaper to do it.I was just making an observation.I've also had bad service at other establishments.They weren't mentioned in the article.I have no ill will towards 3 Crow Bar or it's employees.I applaud you,Todd from East Nashville,for sticking up for your neighborhood bar,but I'm sure the good musicians who have played there in the last couple of years might disagree with you on one point.On a side note,as you put it,I never said I made out with anyone at 3 Crow or Red Door.You said that.

CHARLIE WAYNE,S ANNUAL BIRTHDAY BASH AND CONCERT Recording artist Charlie Wayne is scheduled to perform an unplugged acoustic concert at Douglas Corner FEB 28 2009 at 8:00 pm. This show will be just Charlie and his guitar. No smoke and mirrors, no band, just him doing what he loves, singing his songs for the fans. The show will consist of songs from all his albums,including a few Bullet Boy's hits and some of his newer songs like "Once Upon a Time" and "Duck and the Dove". Charlie is out promoting his new songs along with his newly published book "Enchanted Life". The book is an autobiography and also touches on his beliefs of the power of positive thinking sprinkled with the unkown and mysterious. Charlie has met thousands of people throughout the years and many have touched his heart. Many of them have ended up in the book, who knows? You could be too! Pick your copy up at Barnes & Noble or Books-A-Million. This is a "must see" show! CHARLIE WILL HAVE SOME VERY VERY SPECIAL SUPRISE GUESTS.

Re: “Love-Hate Mail

Common, Nashville Scene is becoming a joke. 1st We would like to thank Caleb for his well written article on MBA and EHS, further tarnishing reputations of both schools, and igniting a fire between the two. NO IT IS NOT GOOD JOURNALISM. The facts were completely wrong, the article itself was horribly written, and inconsiderate when the subject matter was racism as it referred to Tavaress as "a black kid" instead of the proper African American. The Article about Mr.Duncan also was poorly written, as the facts were totally wrong because the charges were DROPPED, he did not plead guilty. I applaud you all for being the WORST newspaper/national enquirer/magazine/whatever you want to call yourself. You should be ashamed.

Re: “Love-Hate Mail

Well, If Fred Thompson is railing against the NAACP, then it must be time for me to join. The invitation letter has been around for a couple of weeks. If Fred says it's bad, it must be the greatest organization in the US. He's never been right on anything yet. I'm there!

Re: “Love-Hate Mail

Doyle Sheppard should spend less time trying to get revenge on a waitress or waiter that he made out with once and start telling the truth. Three Crow has not had bands in almost 2 years let alone "the occasional good band". This place is one of the rare places that no one that works there care who has your tab or where it is, they are glad to get you a drink. When things get real crowded and you go straight to the bar for a drink and then find a table, that does not bother them. You do not have to close your tab and open another one. Service is great considering how crowded it can get sometimes. If Doyle is reporting stories from 2 years ago, then he might have gotten bad service. Red Door East is great about knowing people's names, but it is much smaller and has more regulars. On a side note, how do you make out with someone at 3 Crow that does not know your name?

Re: “Love-Hate Mail

I am very disappointed with the Nashville Scene. I am an ensworth student. The picture you put up of MBA was terrible and very misleading. Also, write your story right. Hooked on Phonix was not the only chant and do not write a biast article. Ensworth deserved to be interviewed as well. You are a crude editor for letting an article like this get through.

Re: “Love-Hate Mail

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- From: IBSNATCHIN To: Sent: 1/7/2009 10:18:25 A.M. Central Standard Time Subj: Urgent need for assistance. Govenor must have authority to resolve? Dr. Samuel Ashby was investigated by the DEA, TBI, and the Local Sheriff's Department earlier this year and he was cleared of any wrong doing. The Health Related Board of Medical Examiners in all their wisdom suddenly suspended Dr. Ashby's right to practice medicine? The Board made no arrangement to care for Dr. Ashby's patients while the matter of his Health and Mental competence is resolved. [Defined as Neglect, and violation of TCA ] I've told you there was a twenty years young suicide in Lincoln County. Although, I haven't seen Jett Trevolta coverage? I didn't even find an obituary in the Elk Valley Times? This suicide is the fault and responsibility of the TN Health Related Board. There is no question that the board again in all their wisdom decided to restrict medical care for all patients of Dr. Ashby. Why did the board feel the need to punish all patients of this physician? Actually, I haven't heard concern for the patients. [Defined as Neglect] The board's answer to care for those patients was: Go to their local ER? The Emergency Room of any Hospital has the responsibility to provide life saving, pre-op care for accident victims stabilizing them for transfer to a Hospital equipped to treat critically injured and persons with life threatening concerns? The Health Related Board wrote the rules these facilities operate? Just as physicians are required? No physician within 75 to 100 miles will see nor treat Dr. Ashby's patients. If Dr. Ashby was their family practice physician these patient are without a doctor and without health care? The board already knows these facts. Withdrawal is a serious medical problem. It can be life threatening? Although, ER physicians don't think they should treat these patients. Because it the patient does die. The ER physician will be subject to the Health Related Boards investigation and possible disciplinary action. [Defined as: Gross Misuse of Authority] If the Health Related Board had professional medical education they should know any patient on long-term medications are at high risk. Some patients risk heart-attack, stroke, and even death. The board suspended refills and prescription written prior to November 19, 2008, The date pharmacies were instructed they shalt stop accepting prescriptions authorized by Dr. Ashby. Can anyone say "DISCRIMINATION, ETHICAL VIOLATION, disregard for their HYPACRIDICAL OATH". Gov. Bredesen should be ashamed of the 2 or more physicians on the panel, board, commission or whoever they are? [Defined as: lack of planning, Discrimination, and Ethical violations] The Health Related Boards actions in this matter are arbitrary and bureaucratic. Tax payers should be outraged at the waste of TN State Funds in this action. One member with whom I spoke had serious animosity for Dr. Ashby, "he said Dr. Ashby won't be practicing medicine again ... for a long time .... maybe never again? Who is he? The board has refused to advise me? Although it appears he' is Judge, Jury and Executioner. This matter is an embarrassment to Tennessee. If the Governor had a backbone he would order this matter closed warning the Executioner Member not to try this unnecessary and arbitrary and bureaucratic waste of tax recourses again. In a State not far from Bankruptcy I can think of a better use for those funds!!! [Described as: Gross Misconduct of the board members] Last, I request assistance in filing a law suite against both the State of Tennessee, The Health Related Board of Medical Examiners, and each individual member on the board who has engaged in this action. Further, each death occurring in the next few months must be investigated, facts gathered, and connection to this boards actions validated. Doing that will ensure that the Gross Negligence of the Health Related Board does not go unpunished. [Defined as Justice] PS Everyone who takes pain medication is not an addict. Some just need it to have a little normality in life.

Re: “Love-Hate Mail

Preview-More to Love than Hate 'What kind of crazy person spends Christmas Eve at the Springwater?' -The pineal gland Symbolic free love hippy people still don't understand to this day...This is what radiates from out of your very own messy corner in spacedom! Maybe witchy poo will have me in the next paragraph spent like a host body desperately seeking a map to traverse the nonlinear time warps of the Mattoid and Monsters on Television. The center of earth's mass gravity Dave Cloud 'the midnite idol' and various antic's. Where he is singing in the crosshairs of polarity getting a suck job from a helpless kitten. Confussion is the source of all propaganda, despair, pain, and reckoning. The moment of truth where universal clammor and his leash become one. Plenty of excuses trapped in the left hand. Coolsville, as Vaudeville, has erupted and burned slow like a flashlight with weak batteries. Monster's on Television are busy backmasking violin solos through a hornet's brain...Rolling out in thundering storms of undisiplined mature rockstars. Up from out of my seat, a seat at the foot of her elaborate throne, I begged for more as Mattoid relentlessly wrecked his own melodies into Christmas deformaties. Saw a sad girl face last night, her actions had become one with her throat chakra...Trouble on the mike...Was not enough to disrupt the divorce from 'the Mattoid' trubadour reality. On Eridu(planet of spirit and mist) she is heroic and triumphant. Her glow like the sweet nectar of illumination dripping through the eyes...When she bent down to kiss my forehead with fire rought down from the Caucus Mountains. I saw Apollo green as eels and an envy like drinking sloppy banana's w/ tangerine spices which had been left to ferment in soft breezes as wet linens drying on the vine whispered to me the sonnets of the black ages. Ectoplasm While 'The Midnite Idol' meanders down an echo chasm, a long corroded catacomb of an eternity. This explains the nature of your visit, a new languange, that only the slimey vultures or monster's resting on Mr. Sunflower's head can comprehend. Before making my bed I ran, in a perfect way, for a mile under her soft skin. In her necklace a Black Flame was trapped between spinning lights where the Raven licked nightshade(eating it raw) obscure of rational thought or all paper cutout snowflake concepts. And peace flew from my hand grenade mind unto where chromozomes flip inside out... A reflective quality spun off a ribbon of red as fourteen battle shields fell to the ground in slow motion. An errie interlude, for an instant almost, you can feel the form of a shadowy figure loop around your neck. Hypothalamus And when does the ivory tower fall? I have been trapped once or twice with no waybees or sophistry. There is no way but out when you are caught at the center of Earth's mass gravity. One level of comprehension from the outsider's manifest. Being sanctified by run-a-way notions of sleep and infinite nocturne is objectionable, abstract, and unaccessible. Could be that we are all just fooling ourselves. It's such a petty arguement...All the truth seeking and searching found in subconscience marauding thoughts. These ideas are meaningless and embody the principle of slack. There is no center in nothingness unless you are a worm squating in dirt. While every indication says shack and arms avail us nothing...Except maybe just more over the top rock-n-roll absurdities. This will make sense in a dream; has no end, serves no purpose, and gets us nowhere. Doing the right thing and living the truth is an ongoing task with ever changing senerios. Never the same thing twice, though we all must ride the bus sometime. At that point when abstract notions are repeated enough times, by enough people, this will be enough to constitute enlightenment. Some few things only make sense in a dream.

Re: “Love-Hate Mail

I think that almost every music writer at the scene is a "hater." Especially Tracy Moore. Unless you are the writers personal favorite band you will most likely get a bad review, which really sucks being that some bands are trying to make it in this town. If you are not the writer im speaking of dont be offended. All of my friends are in bands. Mostly good bands and every one of them has had a bad review in the scene. From the "Perpetually always on the brink of breaking Luna Halo" to "the gin blossoms, hootie, and better than ezra sounding Wes floyd." Close friends, great bands, Ass Hole news paper= Nashville.

Re: “Love-Hate Mail

The only argument against English Only requires an assumption that its basis is intolerance. Morality drives this because morality is shame-based behavior. Bad government legislates morality but it bankrupts the resource that produces it: freedom. Morality must never be enforced. Tolerance, the poster-moral that opposes English Only is a form of shame-based behavior, i.e. morality, and it requires a bad-guy. To look down one's nose at English Only is to egrandize one's own moral disposition. The dark side is now that a form of passion is entered as the premise for law, the social contract shifts from reason to passion. Ever notice why moral people backslide and suffer many imperfections? They don't learn virtue. Virtue, Socrates teaches, is learned once and adhered to for the rest of life. Virtue is the basis of good government, not morality. Morality creates grey area, virtue is black and white. Morality is passion-centered, virtue is reason-based. Which should govern? Reason or passion? All would agree reason. So what refutation remains for a bill that builds a more perfect union based on equality and a common defense. A language barrier is as akin to fascism as it is to diversity. Tolerance is attracted to diversity, but forth comes fascism to take advantage.

Re: “Love-Hate Mail

Many thanks to the always brilliant Jim Ridley for his insightful look into the world of Cable Access Television and the plight of Joey Bowker aka The Bat Poet (The Dark Knight's Dark Night). Joey is truly the face of CATV, not only through his unique creativity, but his incredible longevity. As a producer of two cable access television shows (Stubby's Place and 2 Guys Who Don't Know Crap About Movies) I can tell you that just putting together the minimum three shows it takes to establish your time slot in the CATV line-up is a daunting task that has felled many a potential producer. Joey has been on Channel 19 in one form or another for an astonishing twenty-odd years (and I do mean odd)! It's unfortunate - but not surprising - that more viewers were not aware of his medical condition and his comrades' mission to raise money for his mounting medical bills. Channel 19 is frequently an oddity to those flipping through the channels and usually doesn't warrant more than a few fleeting seconds from an impatient viewer brandishing a remote control. But The Bat Poet possesses the unique ability to stop them in their tracks and garner a second look. Many have likened The Bat Poet Show and it's spin-off The Slime Show to a train wreck; you just can't turn away from it and it makes you want to see what's going to happen next. Joey has never veered off track and continues to astonish and amaze with his bizarre form of entertainment. Hopefully Mr. Ridley's article will help raise awareness to Joe's continuing medical woes and to the aberration known as Community Access Television.

Re: “Love-Hate Mail

THe facts remain true. Although Obama won the election, rasicm is still alive and well. For someone to just say get over it...geeze! It, being the ill effects placed upon a race of people becuase of slavery, jim crow, institutionalized rasicm, segregation, terrorism (KKK)and many more injustices within the black community from years back until now is naive and insensitive. When you look around, it is not just coincidence that African Americans are behind, but may be by design. Please be sensitive and respect the many obstacles that have been placed to help hinder the progress of a race. As well as the progress that has been made inspite of said obstacles!
