Re: “Makeover complete, the new 5th Avenue of the Arts is ready for its close-up

This looks to be a can't-miss crawl. Great article, Joe!

Wrestler/musician Jocephus Brody is curating a new music series at The Space Gallery during every First Saturday crawl, beginning this Saturday with Textbook Punk (Chris Murray of Square People).

Re: “John Scarpati's photos from L.A.'s punk and glam heyday come to Bongo Java

The depiction of crossroad of the worlds above is spot on!
Now picture me headed in with a box full of receipts to see Keith Clark
raise the anti with a stop by Smalls on the way home, and a lean over the bar to ask Keith Morris for a Negroni
Yup – that's Hollywood! \,,/ ( > < ) \,,/

Re: “John Scarpati's photos from L.A.'s punk and glam heyday come to Bongo Java

it's an intriguing and accurate capture of the creative being that IS Scarpati...
one quibble: Crossroads of the World was a very retro office compound. for years, music managers, accountants and various "service" providers were based there
...and it literally looked like a ride rejected by Disney for being a little too shabby, a little too kitsch, which only made me love it more!

Re: “Rachel Owens gets her war on with a dual display about the environment, consumption and fighting for oil

That's optimism you're smelling, and a belief in the boundless human imagination.

Re: “Rachel Owens gets her war on with a dual display about the environment, consumption and fighting for oil

Unless Joe Nolan, Rachel Owens, et al travel the land by foot while nude or clothed in skins from animals that died of natural causes, the odor of hypocrisy travels with them. We need oil, we need carbon based fuel. What we don't need is people whining about carbon based energy while using carbon based energy.

This is sold out. Nowhere in the article does it mention price or tickets.

Odom brutally raped an 86 year old woman. As she was begging him not to rape her, she said, "Please son", and he replied "I'll give you a son", then raped and stabbed her to death.

Quintero escaped from prison in Kentucky. While on the run, he went to the rural home of an elederly couple and brutally killed them.

In 1988, Nichol broke into the home of his 21 year old victim, raped her and bashed her several times in the head with a 2 x 4. He left her to die in a pool of blood. He had previously been convicted of 5 other rapes.

And Middlebrooks. He grabbed a completely innocent 12 year old child in East Nashville. He and a campanion dragged the child to a secluded area and tortured him for several hours. Middlebrooks is white and his victim was black. They torture (by Middlebrooks own admission) including racial threats as well as stabbings, urinating in the boy's mouth and stick a tree branch up his anus.

Just so you know.

>>Many times, Guenther says, she wished she'd recorded the powerful discussions within.<<

Let me guess: they were "messed up on drugs" when they killed, they regret what they did & now they've all "found" Jesus & want to help others avoid their mistakes?

Did I miss anything?

Re: “Nashville's graffiti writers are reclaiming their turf, all over again

Yes we have noticed a surge in "art graffiti" around Hillsboro Vandy, and if we catch anyone defacing beautiful private property we have busted our asses for, it will e a delight to see you imprisoned. Thanks Scene, for making criminal actions Hip! Blight for everyone to enjoy whether they want it or not; I thought that was called subjugation.

Re: “A talk with artist Patricia Piccinini, whose disquieting yet appealing works explore the bond between man and animal

too easy, without Patricia Piccinini, none of this would be created and really they are just craftsmen with their craft. CAnt even call it art. I take pics and have ppl to process the film for me, should I credit all of these TECHNICIANS as well for my work?

Re: “An installation by Brent Stewart is disturbing for all the right reasons

The name of the dancer is Mary Arwen. Mr. Stewart kept her anonymous against her wishes.
