Re: “Country Sunshine: Remembering Dottie West

Did anyone read this? Edd at the Nashville Scene didn't do his research, and I pray didn't get paid for it!

Re: “Country Sunshine: Remembering Dottie West

That is the sorriest description of Dottie West's illustrious three decade career that I have ever heard. If you can say that Dottie West is not a "deep" singer - and especially compare her to the likes of Tammy Wynette and Jeannie Seely, both of whom can hold their own as stylists but not a candle to West's emotional well of pain and joy that she experienced during her life - then you haven't listened to tracks from such albums as "Here Comes My Baby" and "Just Dottie", her first and last. "Would You Hold It Against Me" and "I Make A Great Cup Of Coffee" (PLEASE! What a joke that you would even recognize such a nothing of a song from one of her most unpopular albums) are merely footnotes to her other storied hits that showcase her artistry.

Re: “Beauty is Embarrassing Screening and Q&A With Wayne White

No kidding! The papers in Nashville list events wrong so often I've stopped bothering planning an evening by what's in the paper. You absolutely have to call ahead. In Nashville, it's not unusual for someone to do a 50 mile drive to see an event, then back. If I live in Franklin and have an event or gig in Gallatin thats 50 miles! a 100 mile roundtrip, yet they cant get events listings right in this city. Not only that, The Music calendar stops functioning at 530 pm daily. So if you're at work or in your hotel checking out music events and OoPPS unless you know to use the first tab on Calendar, you see no events. It takes a lot of incompetence to run a city! Good times!

Re: “Gershom Gorenberg: "The Remaking of Israel — The Need for a Second Republic"

It is important to note that the "J Street" organization has been described by the Israeli Government as an Anti Israel organization and Pro Palestinian group. And yes, these are the same Palestinians that cheered and gave out candy on the streets when the Twin Towers fell on 9/11. It is a great shame that the Nashville Scene chooses to give such an organization an open stage, it is even worse that the Jewish Community Center does the same - all for money. Shame.

Re: “Big River

I'm in 4th grade my grade sow it and it was very inappropriate for my age so if you see this don't take you kids. The play was funny especially the nonsuch that was funny. My friend anders fell asleep. It was very long and boring in some parts. So I'd give it a 5 out of 10

Re: “Exploring Art of the Ancient Americas: The John Bourne Collection

Seriously.. This is journalism? Could you be any more crass in how you begin this article? YES Laura Hutson, by all means, we care about how much this topic bores you and reminds you of boring times at your grandmothers home. Why the fuck are you even writing about this if you hold this opinion? This exhibition is showing some of the splendors of human civilization..

For the discerning reader, here is a more in tact approximation copied from Frist's site:

From 3000 BCE until the year 1492 CE when Europeans accidentally encountered the Western Hemisphere, the cultures of Mesoamerica, Central America, and Andean South America forged innovative paths of social, intellectual, spiritual, and artistic development. They created marvels of engineering, constructing the hemisphere’s tallest building at Teotihuacan in central Mexico (surpassed only in 1931 by the Empire State Building) and devising irrigation systems that moved water more than 160 miles from an altitude of 18,000 feet in the Peruvian Andes Mountains to the Pacific Coast. In Mexico and Guatemala, writing systems recorded history and astronomical data that accurately tracked planets and predicted eclipses. Long-distance travel from as far north as present-day Illinois to the Caribbean Islands and the Amazon Basin not only transported commodities but also practical, religious, and artistic knowledge. In every way, the ancient Americas constitute one of the world’s majestic cradles of civilization.

The John Bourne Collection is the creation of one man whose life was transformed in 1945 by a remarkable trip into the jungles of southern Mexico. On one expedition, he and another explorer are believed to have become the first non-Maya to see the ruins of Bonampak, a Maya city in southern Chiapas where now-famous painted murals were found only a few months later. Returning to the United States, Mr. Bourne (b. 1927) embarked on a lifelong love of collecting art from this region and others in the ancient Americas. At this time in the 1950s, only a handful of people, including the Mexican artists Diego Rivera (1886–1957) and Frida Kahlo (1907–1954), recognized pre-Columbian artifacts as fine art, equal to that of any culture. This exhibition features select pieces from the John Bourne Collection, presented both as beautiful art forms and as insightful expressions of the indigenous peoples of the Americas.

This exhibition was organized by The Walters Art Museum, Baltimore.

Re: “Mark Robinson Band

OMG! We thought we were going to a pub for a burger and a beer. The talent in that place was overwhelmingly great. The smoked meat was so tender and tasty. The sides were all homemade just like my grandma cooked Sunday dinner. I will be taking all my guests to visit this place. Can't say enough good about the place

Re: “Darkest America Book Event

It's not a novel, it's a terrific and provocative work of non-fiction, and if you're interested in the American music story, you should be there. I will.

Re: “Company Rose's Tilling Green

In a collection of work that has already placed Nashville on the Contemporary Dance map, this was a standout, a remarkable piece that demonstrated the sensitivity, the profundity, and the incredible aesthetics of Marsha Barsky and her remarkable company. Truly remarkable work.

Re: “Shen Yun Performing Arts

I was shocked. The narrators seemed like ten year olds, the cartoon screen in the background felt like 1976, the piano looked like they borrowed it from a bar across the street, the male singer had me lasughing hysterically over his incompetence, the ending seemed like a version of the childens show The TeleTubbies! The whole experience was a blast due to it being so horrible. I laughed the whole way through.
