This stuff is not as clear-cut as you make it out to be.

Re: “Bitter about the South

Did you guys even read the story? or are you utterly dense? Clearly, "bitter" refers to Patterson Hood's "duality of the southern thing," i.e. loving a place and its people but still being critical of many aspects of the culture, e.g. the still-pervading racism, ignorance, and stupidity of would-be neo-Confederates. Is it really all that difficult to understand?

Re: “Beatles vs. Stones

That thugs-gentlemen commentary says more about Sean O'Mahony's class prejudices than anything else. The Beatles were working class blokes, the Stones from middle class families.

Re: “Beatles vs. Stones

Stones...all the way.

I still remember hearing "Satisfaction" as a yout and realizing that rock n roll would take my soul.

"The Beatles were thugs who were put across as nice blokes, and the Rolling Stones were gentlemen who were made into thugs ... "

Interesting....

Re: “Beatles vs. Stones

I get no emotion from the Beatles. The Stones have swagger and groove.

Re: “Bitter about the South

His picture looks like Roseanne Barr's ex, Tom Arnold.

Maybe they’re "bitter" because some white southerners are still bitter about losing the War.

Re: “Bitter about the South

What the South needs more of: purple prose written by upper-middle-class white people.

Re: “Bitter about the South

JR, it's probably partly a pun...since they started out writing about cocktails.

Re: “Sleepy Hollow cleverly turns working stable into haunted house

This was a great interactive stage theater experience. Great set, great mood, great props, great time of year for this. It was fun being in the middle of it all with the actors while they were in character.

Farcical white guilt is always a guaranteed sell.

Re: “Bitter about the South

I like the idea and the little I saw of the site but why the word bitter?

Re: “Alley Pat still gets the last laugh

Alley Pat kept me company on the radio at work for years. A treasure...a true Atlanta original. In the early morning hours, he would play Lou Rawls "Early Morning Love" and say, "OK, this for ya'll to have a little fun before you have to get the kids up." And when a news story of some low life thug came up, he would play this gem:

Re: “Alley Pat still gets the last laugh

Thrilled to know that Alley Pat lived long enough to get his due and proper. It's strange...I have so many African-American friends in their 90s these days. When I moved here they were hale, hearty, and in their 60s....oh.

No no the actual building. Not the ceremony.

The Georgia Music Hall of Fame is October 19th.

In regards to this wonderful article, there is a correction. Alley Pat was not hired by the owner of WERD; he was discovered by the Program Director of WERD, my Uncle Ken Knight.

Re: “10 things to know about Flux Night

Exceptional turnout, super unique artists/displays, reasonable food and drink prices, people on their best behavior. Who knew the Fire Station would be such a draw? Watching so many ages and ethnicities sweat to the rockstar DJ in front of No Mas was awesome. Very proud 'hood moment and great witnessing the legit CL booth. Not to ruin it, but walking along Walker I couldn't help but to think of the gentlemen who only a few days prior lost his life in the same spot. Thoughts go out to his family and friends.
