Re: “Maximus Thor and Benny Wonka

I've worked with Ben, James, Slick... on other projects. Each are incredibly passionate about their work. I always share Maximus Thor vids with my students and anybody ready to laugh and peep some highly creative filmmaking. Keep pushing the envelope y'all--our industry needs it!

Re: “Tim Keane

So glad y'all have him! He wreaked havoc for us here in Charleston, despite glowing remarks. yes, our peninsula is fabulous, but that's not because of Mr. Keane. Ask the folks on the barrier islands what they thing of him. He's a developers best friend.

Re: “Mayor Kasim Reed

I am all for helping the homeless and the very poor, I have just never understood the subsidizing or legislation of affordable housing in high demand areas and projects. Anytime I see a list of the most expensive cities to live in, I notice they also tend to be the greatest cities to live in. I would prefer to live in Manhattan or San Francisco, and I can actually afford it, but I am cheap and like being able to retire at a younger age so I live in Atlanta.

Don't people resent the people that get to live in the same building as they do but for less money just because they make less money? Seems to be punishing people for success. Shouldn't you aspire to make enough money to live somewhere in high demand than have big government legislate you in to the neighborhood. Just seems un-American.

And, in case, you think I am some snob, I live in a older, "cheaper", downtown high rise and I bought when the housing market was down. By the way, buying when markets are bad, a very simple way to make money. The building is very affordable and very diverse, lots of retirees and students, I enjoy this and I love the location. But that is my choice and I definitely do not resent people that choose to live in a ten million dollar a unit building or expect anyone to give me a break on the price so that the development can be "diverse". If I can not afford it because supply and demand prices me out, so be it.

By the way, buy something you can afford and you never get priced out of the market as you are an owner, not a renter.

Re: “Jen Hidinger

I only know what I have read through the years, I do not know anyone involved, and am not in the restaurant industry but this lady and this whole project is a great story. Someone really should write a book and a screenplay.

Coppolella is great on toast or even a salad...sorry, he works for the Braves...never mind. Atlanta still has a baseball team?

Re: “Carlos Bocanegra

I am so pumped about Atlanta United FC, Major League Soccer within walking distance for me, cool.

And I actually think they can sell a bunch of tickets especially if they follow the Seattle Sounders business model and make it a great big party for the hipsters and posers and get some celebrities out to the games.

Do you think André 3000 likes soccer?

Re: “Becky Katz

I think a city of bikers is a romantic notion but until they solve the physics issue that a 2000 pound weapon of mini-mass destruction wins 100 out of 100 times when it does battle with a human body especially at high speeds will keep me walking and on Marta with the occasional taxi.

Bike lanes and laws and common sense are great until you enter that battle and lose. But at least he died doing what he loved, riding his bike in a city full of cars being driven by stupid people trying to eat breakfast, update Facebook and take a selfie all at the same time.

Bikes are for the suburbs and parks and mountain trails, not the Southern autobahn that is the city of Atlanta.

With that said, good luck Becky, chief bicycle officer, CBO, cool job.

Re: “Chuck Reece

I just spent some time on the site. I like it, will visit again, and hope they survive. As for making it, maybe the business model should be as a labor of love instead of something that makes money. Often the moment when you let go of money as your measure of success is the moment when you figure out your true purpose and find success on your own terms.

Re: “Marian Liou

Do love me some Buford Highway. Great place to play Marta dining roulette. Get on bus 39, best route in the city, and randomly get off and eat at the closest non-chain restaurant. Hard to go wrong.
And say what you like about Marian, good or bad, but she is one purdy girl.

Re: “Maximus Thor and Benny Wonka

So basically a 10 year old takes advantage of his mentally ill father to become an Internet star?

Just kidding, I will make sure I check out some videos and I like the mental health message. I have a theory that being mentally ill is simply a part of being human, maybe even a necessity, its just that some mental illness is more acceptable and even admired in this world.

With any luck you will turn in to the biggest stars in the world. Good luck.

Re: “Katherine Kennedy

Imagine if every grocery store and restaurant made the same effort instead of trashing so much perfectly good food out of fear of liability. The food we waste in this country is not only a shame but a national embarrassment.

Hey, maybe we push for a law that protects commercial establishments from liability when donating food. Just a thought.

Obviously not his fault but Atlanta may be the worst designed major city in the world.

Re: “Mayor Kasim Reed

how many more decades will it take for the beltline to be completed? This should have been priority #1 due to its impact on the entire city and should have totally been completed within 2-3 years MAXIMUM. Instead, we're looking at least at another decade before completion. This will be Reeds legacy of FAILURE.

Re: “Mayor Kasim Reed

He wants Atlanta to avoid becoming un-affordable like London, New York and San Francisco? The reason those places are 'un-affordable' is because they're great cities where lots of people want to live and work. They have things like public transportation, they have a thriving cultural scene, they are aesthetically pleasing and pedestrian friendly. Atlanta is choking to death on traffic with no meaningful public transport. It is a horrible place for pedestrians. And how about that rat's nest of power, phone and cable lines above our heads? Maybe spend some of the money to bury those! Comparing Atlanta to those other cities in any context is just silly.

Re: “Alexander Acosta

"We have heard the dispatch...they said not to approach Treyvon. He ignored the order and approached anyway."

Man, your ignorance is astounding. Zimmerman said okay and stopped. He, at that point, did not know Martin's location. Listen to the tape.
It is impossible to 'engage' someone whose location is unknown to you
Martin had reached his father's girlfriend's house and could have gone inside and that would have been the END,
but instead according to Jeantel's testimony(listen to it) he went back, stalked, confronted and sucker punched Zimmerman,
got on top of Zimmerman, smashing Zimmerman's head into the concrete(look at the injuries to Zimmerman's head) and pummeling him 'MMA style' (according to eye-witness testimony- listen to it).
Zimmerman defended himself from the attack and shot Martin. Martin made a very bad decision and paid the ultimate price for his stupidity.

Defending someone based solely on his race and a willful ignoring of the facts is racist behavior and despicable.

Re: “Alexander Acosta

@Northern Sentinel

We have heard the dispatch...they said not to approach Treyvon. He ignored the order and approached anyway. Also, Zimmerman has been in a handful of violent/domestic incidents since then which leads one to believe he was the issue not Treyvon
