Re: “New East Nashville Food Tour Is Not Just for Tourists ... and Not Just About Food

It's not just about food. It's about food stuck in beards.

Re: “Can the people Nashville hopes to attract afford to move here? And can the residents who made it desirable afford to stay?

Bottom line is the bubble will burst. What the ramifications of that will be remains to be seen, but hopefully it'll be a positive thing.

Re: “Jamey Johnson on Studio A Building Eviction: 'I Don't Intend on Just Pulling up and Walking Away'

Everyone say hello the latest aliases of Tim Reynolds and Co., "ugh x 1,000,000 " "ugh x 5,600,000." Was only a matter of time before their business 'reasoning' plagued another comment section.

Re: “Bravo Development Announces Plans for Development on Former RCA Studio A Site [Oh, the Humility]

@ dickie chowders

The arrogance and underlying greed in your statements are unbelievable, though you're a realtor so no surprise. All of the ugly, matchbox houses devoid of character going up are for those who have equal the amount of personality and sense. I.e., none. I look at the ones going up on the west side of town near Charlotte, on top of the hills. Are they insane? Just wait for a strong enough tornado and bye bye! We've had an unusually calm year this year but it's scary to think if the typical season comes upon us. Of course, the developers and realtors are only concerned with money, not providing a nice place to live.

Nashville has and will always be a tourist town. That's the way it is and nothing is going to change. The transplants moving from other cities trying to manipulate it into something else have failed time and time again. Look at how many failed businesses have come and gone in the Gulch.I've read it's over 80. Why? Because the people that live down there and go to those places are trendy. Trends die, thankfully.

Lastly, you repeatedly speak as if all of us natives are walking around concerned about what others think to the point we should be actively changing to please them. Who cares what they think!! If they want to think we're country, well, we are! Nashville is the buckle of the bible belt. What you call the "old" Nashville was the true Nashville. What's happening now is, like I said, persons not from here trying to put a different facade on it. That's all it is anyhow, a facade. It's not your place or responsibility of what a city's reputation is. Your bank account is plenty full I'm sure, which is obviously all that matters.

So Dick, sell overpriced, poorly built homes designed by architects with no artistic talent. Get rich. Stay rich. The rest of us who are not insecure will remain true to ourselves, enjoy the city for what we know it truly is. Now, I'm going to go listen to some Jerry Reed. Maybe a little Johnny Paycheck. Enjoy your fusion food.

Re: “Dawn of the Planet of the Tapes: Belcourt Launches 'Weeknight Rewind' VHS Nights

I was commenting on the format aspect and exxagerating intentionally. Why anyone would want to watch a bad movie on a bad format is beyond me.They should do a "best of Mystery Science Theater 3000" week, at least make it worth the admission and time.

Re: “Dawn of the Planet of the Tapes: Belcourt Launches 'Weeknight Rewind' VHS Nights

I gladly said goodbye to VHS when DVD's came out, like everyone else did. These latest trends of embracing sub-par audio/video delivery is asinine. Next thing you'll read is "Cylinder Night", with Pink Floyd's The Wall transferred to 35 of them. The noisy, almost intelligible sound will blow hipsters minds. Not to mention they get to hold them.

Re: “Ben Folds to Vacate RCA Studio A Building

Totally wrong Delta Dawn. A 124% increase is simply the current amount plus 24% of that on top if it. It is obvious but I'll go ahead and point out your skewed math added 224%.
