Re: “Kris Kristofferson at the Ryman, 9/13/14

I was there. It was a wonderful show and the audience was totally with him. He is so humble and grateful for his fans and I got the impression that he has no idea why he is so adored. This is my 4th Kris show and even though his vocals are a little weaker, he still rocked the house. Made us laugh. Made us cry. I'm so happy I had the privilege of seeing him one last time. Who knows? Maybe I'll have another

Historic. Wish I could have seen it. I'm sorry Maloney had to get his snark on (and misspell "Kristofferson" in the process), but ... some people just can't help themselves. Maloney strikes me as the kind'a fella who would have complained about the wine served at The Last Supper. And unleavened bread? Puh-leeze!

Re: “Status Update of the Week: Sturgill Simpson on Being 'Chastised' for Singing 'Goddamn' on Conan

Interesting--don't ever recall anybody complaining about the lyrics to The Dead's "Uncle John's Band."

Personally, I don't like hearing that expression, but on the other hand I respect his right to sing it.

Re: “The Black Belles' Olivia Jean to Release Jack White-Produced Debut Solo LP Oct. 14

I want to preface this by saying that I had never heard any of the gossip before reading this comment thread today (nor do I really give two shits about it.) I had the opportunity to see Olivia Jean perform live last night as the opener for Jack White at Merriweather Post Pavilion. Her performance was lackluster at best. She fell flat in front of a live audience. Yes, she's pretty and buys into the Third Man aesthetic, but her music was terrible. She has no stage presence. Her voice is weak. She did play the guitar well, but it was nothing special. Her band sounded like a bad Jack White cover band. Completely uninspired performance. The best part about her entire set was a cover of "Venus." Not sure what Jack was thinking by making her his opening act; I doubt it'll last much longer.

Any thoughts on Gilles de Rais? He was a pretty fucked-up historical murderer.

Re: “Hear Tom Hiddleston Sing Hank Williams' 'Move It on Over'

McConaughey in DALLAS BUYERS CLUB looks uncannily like Hank in some of the later scenes. But I'm going to hold my tongue on Hiddleston — he's a terrific actor, in the Marvel universe and beyond. (Ashley, if you're out there, tell me you've seen THE DEEP BLUE SEA — not the Samuel L. Jackson smart-shark movie — or anything else by Terence Davies.)

Re: “The Black Belles' Olivia Jean to Release Jack White-Produced Debut Solo LP Oct. 14

"It is ridiculous to think that there is only one person in the Third Man fanbase or on the entire internet that dislikes Olivia.*"

True (as it would be if you replaced "Olivia" with any musical figure since the time of Saint Hildegard von Bingen). But that's not what I said. One person is filing dozens of hateful comments under myriad fake names. That number has gone up since the last time I posted.

Several people have published unflattering comments here that fall squarely within the bounds of criticism and fair opinion (which makes it even weirder that they're posting anonymously, but whatever). Unfortunately, one crackpot is making those hard to tell from the hate rants — for the public, anyway, though most people following this thread have caught on by now.

"*Yes I posted this on NoCountryforNewNashville so don't accuse of being one of those people since I posted on 2 different sites."

Why stop there? We've got a food blog, you know.

But back to Sybil:

"Also I post from a public computer. Wanna bet that other people do too?"

Gosh, that's a lot of illiterate Olivia Jean cranks at one poor abused public terminal. Do you take turns typing, or does each split personality have its own library card?

"I guess that is the only way to bully and threaten people to shut up right? Get a life."

A life? Is that what you call this?

STFU "Guest".
You're too much of a coward to even post your real name. Call it "trash talking" if you want (Geez you must be bored), but when you're anonymous, it's called cyber bullying, which is pathetic. Especially if you're over fifteen.

Re: “The Black Belles' Olivia Jean to Release Jack White-Produced Debut Solo LP Oct. 14

It is widespread knowledge that this hick serviced Jack. If you can't take the heat, don't cheat with your boss and destroy a family. No wonder people dislike her! Trash is trash and creates trash talking on the internet.
Also I post from a public computer. Wanna bet that other people do too?

I guess that is the only way to bully and threaten people to shut up right? Get a life.

Re: “The Black Belles' Olivia Jean to Release Jack White-Produced Debut Solo LP Oct. 14

Right...because it's only fair that the "fans" should dictate who Jack White shares the stage with. Maybe pick his band out for him as well no?

Re: “Gossip Girl's Taylor Momsen Opens for The Veronicas at Rocketown Saturday Night

woww. wtf. "whose character is, like, 15, or something"?? taylor momsen was 15 herself, the age of the character she played (i initially only watched GG for her). and she had written all of the lyrics to those songs... she is a fricken musically prodigal genius. lolol major underestimation, much... and, fyi, "Zombie" is a very good song. i play it and song it on the guitar all the time :33 no, really- if you haven't already, go check out the pretty reckless's entire very first album. amazing professionalism and genius lyrics coming frm a 14/15-yr-old (when she had written them). no cheesy simple unoriginal sentences as lyrics, but, rather, a deep poetic style of diary-writing/narrative story, almost...

Re: “Brentwood Developer Sets Stage for Demolition of RCA Studio A

Everyone is arguing about saving this building. If Studio A is truly separate from the office building, someone (or an organization) needs to step forward, call the bluff and make an offer for it, then put the funds into it to restore it properly. And better yet, 'begin with the end in mind'. Survival as only a tourist attraction is a tough row to hoe for what's essentially a big room: it would need to be a vibrant, living music space to survive - and that is in fact its real value. However, when we live in a community that puts fast food restaurants in the middle of what was one of the major battlefields of the Civil War, frankly I'm not holding out a lot of hope. It will take someone with very deep pockets and a lot of ganas - and all I'm hearing are crickets.
