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.

Re: “Scene Names New Managing Editor, Culture Editor and Music Editor

omg this is amazing ! so glad! obvvviously the community picked these incredibly talented writers, they didn't just circle jerk and replace one another! no way, not only are they classy, but they aren't egotistic, it's about nashville's music scene,not them!

congrats guys! looks like a good 4-5 years of circle jerks, championing locals based off of social circumstances over music, and TMZ like articles from Gold! SAAA- WEEEEEEEET!

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

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.

Re: “Charter Schools Enter Fray in East Nashville Plan

So many of you believe you know what is best for other people.

I don't suppose you've had sex in 2014. We star pt off with a post about WalMart and Aldi. Then, someone who at least uses paragraphs writes about dog ooders. A few posts stupidly engage on the grocery store front. More than one person denigrates shirts. Race is brought into the conversation. A po black folk apparently reads the Scene (who'd a thunk it). Some of you can't read. Most can't write a coherent sentence, much less a paragraph.

Having attended and been promoted from elementary school should be a prerequisite for posting here.

You all are a few clicks shy of Ebola.

Re: “Metro Pulse Dissolved After 23 Years

Bummer. I worked in the city/county building in knoxville back in the day & higher ups & peons (like me) alike would rush to get the latest copy of the Metropulse when they were delivered. Their Ear to the Ground gossip/whadyaknow column was must read (if sometimes off the mark). And Jack Neely is the fount of history for that scruffy little city. His columns & features where always enlightening and engaging. Big loss of voice for et & all of tn.

Re: “Metro Pulse Dissolved After 23 Years

@moost: Hey, you ignorant !@#%. Try NOT posting when you know nothing about the situation. The fact is that MP was profitable and self-sufficient. Staff wages and benefits were getting paid just fine without any subsidies from the corporate overlords. I know, i used to work there, and was a contributor to the end.

Re: “Charter Schools Enter Fray in East Nashville Plan

Well, as an aside, the families with children in private schools may be paying $1000's and yet, they are still paying their taxes. Most of these parents feel choice, charters and vouchers are quite all right, in fact a better way to go.

Bubba, of course, wants more money, if not possible then spending at other levels could be cut.... and why not?

Re: “Halloween haunted houses in Middle Tennessee — our guide to the grand, the gory and the godawful

First Off Justin. You should not be such a pompous ass to the Scene's readers. Not a very good way to ensure job security.

Secondly, if you are going to be in a position to review haunts you should have an adequate memory and actually look at stuff. You did the same thing to Nashville Nightmare last year, giving them bad reviews bc they were the same haunt when they indeed made tons of additions, huge and in-your-face.

But opinions are like assholes, and apparently the scene has one.

Dear Readers: Don't take anyone's advice, just go to these haunts for yourself and you be the judge.

Re: “Charter Schools Enter Fray in East Nashville Plan

Yeah, well, Kay, choice-power is wonderful if you don't have to pay for it. Competing grocery stores in East Nashville pay for their own property and inventory. The funds for competing schools, unfortunately, have to come out of the same budget, which is not growing enough to permit every school-age kid to able to choose between two or more schools.

The effect of what you and the other Let 100 Charters Bloom people want to do is to bleed so much money out of the traditional schools that you'll be able to say, "Look, the traditional schools failed! That proves we need more charters!"
