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

What an ignorant piss baby you are, notguilty. Why don't you go find yourself a fresh diaper and pull your head out of your ass while you're there.

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.)

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.

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

Ashley, you are a national treasure. The hardest I laugh all week is reading your genius recaps. They are the beer after my shot. Having been a background singer on many tours, and on many tour buses, you nailed that bus business down. Thank you.

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

Somewhere along the way (**cough**LAYLA**cough**), this show turned a corner, and now the only thing that keeps me coming back is Ashley's recaps.

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

The vanishing toupee! The forced-perspective shot of Scarlett to enhance the crazy! That insane Mustang-danger montage! Depending on why one watches this nonsense, this episode either really, really delivered or disappointed tenfold. #ittotesdelivered

Me thinks we need to take this horse out back and put it down. Odds it makes the 'turn' or get cancelled before seasons end?

Sundays and Cybele is now available from The Criterion Collection. A beautiful masterpiece with wonderful interviews with the director and stars.

Sharon, Lois and Bram! BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Also, I wonder if it was part of the filming deal that The Hermitage Cafe got a bath for the show. Damn good taters though.

Re: “Halloween Horrors: A List of Local Haunted Houses (Now with Zombie Paintball Hayride!)

Dead Land Haunted Woods was awesome! Three totally different attractions and the maze was almost impossible to get out of. Actors galore, you could tell they love their work. it was really creepy walking through the woods getting scared by all of the props and startles. It was also fun to hang out, some great BBQ in the concession stand and a huge bonfire to soak up the atmosphere. make a night of it!

And hey, if you could tag the Porch above, well, that would be mighty nice.

Re: “Literary Death Match a Knockout in Music City

I'd like to point out, just for the record, that the Porch Writers' Collective was instrumental in bringing LDM to Nashville. We didn't have as much to do with the final planning stages (though we did as much publicity work for the event as we could), but we put the very first call out to LDM: it was our idea to bring them to town. Wouldn't have happened otherwise, I'm pretty certain. I'm so thankful we were able to move the event toward such a great venue and awesome partners, and I hope this is only the first. I also hope Nashville will continue to support the Porch and everything we're working really hard to do to build progressive literary culture in this town. - Susannah Felts

Re: “Nashville Recap: ‘I Can’t Get Over You to Save My Life’

I also wondered about the part in the last episode where the doctor tells Juliette that TN law requires her to tell the patient how far along she is. I checked with the Guttmacher Institute, and that is really true, so the kudos to the writers for getting that right. (It is the only "counseling" requirement in effect in TN. And another reason why we need to Vote No on 1, to keep the legislature from enacting more pointless requirements.)

Re: “Nashville Recap: ‘I Can’t Get Over You to Save My Life’

The acting is great, as is the direction.

The scripts are generally well-written, though I have anticipated a few of the lines as well as the subplots a few times.

I would never have watched the program were it not filmed here but I have been hooked- until the Season Two finale. Remember, that episode was filmed before any commitment to Season Three, so the writers have been struggling ever since to find plausible plots after tying all of the (major) loose ends with the Season Two finale.

Oliver Hudson must feel creatively confined by his unidimensional character. Spoiler alert (not!): Jeff finds the cure for cancer in his spare time.

Photographs of babies at the abortion clinic? I think not.

I love Derek Hough (though not enough to watch DWTS. I wouldn't even watch when Samantha Harris, my second cousin once-removed, was on it).

Nashville fell a tenth to a 1.5 last night so, perhaps as I suggested earlier, the show has jumped the shark. (I'm not wishing that mind you: I've found work- love that overtime- as a paid extra during all three seasons.)

That perception was reinforced when the writers seemed to slip last night with Lennon Stella's character's acting out and having to learn an "adult" lesson regular viewers thought she had learned several episodes ago during a segment on Internet oversharing.
