Re: “Beltline trail progress prompts pushback from community garden

lol @ drozzell who calls for a "comment embargo" with 6 of 35 comments

@ Josh R I didn't "demonize" Mr. Walton...I applauded him for his initial efforts. However, I don't hear collaboration on his part, just grandstanding and obstructionism for personal gain (his business) and perhaps to make a bigger name for himself which furthers self-promotion. Mr. Walton's comments at points, demonize the Beltline with for example, "Let's just go ahead and put a child on the alter for the Beltline while we are at it, in the name of Beltline."

The Beltline in fact will go much further to promote the community's welfare. When personal agenda is placed before others and disguised as concern for them...that's ultimate betrayal. It happens all the time unfortunately people we trust and seem to care for us use our support for their own gain. I'm just pointing out that possibility here.

Re: “Beltline trail progress prompts pushback from community garden

There was a vacuum...filled with prostitutes, drugs, and Fried Chicken....Mr. Walton stepped serve community and Himself...the WeCycle is a business as it's described...So He's protecting his own interests in this. That's fine b/c initially his interests were a good fit with the community's interest...they helped one another out....mutually beneficial...Awesome!

BUT The BIG picture is that NOW there's big project to fill the vacuum and create prosperity on grander scale....his was a step forward...Beltline is a giant lunar leap forward. He can find another garden and another venture for his WeCycle business. There are lots of vacant lots and apparently other nearby gardens. This smacks of personal ego masquerading as community advocacy.

Re: “City Council OK's Downtown Ferris wheel construction, allows Atlantans to forge memories that will last a lifetime

Once this is in place...the stage is set for post-apocalyptic Atlanta...with a tilting Ferris wheel hanging on it's broken axis....

But seriously....might this not be a good place for the homeless to at midnight out at 6 am? It kills two birds with one stone....the bored tourist and the homeless homeless person.

Re: “Ten metro Atlanta police officers arrested for allegedly protecting cocaine traffickers (Update)

So....why does the fed. gov. have to discover this? Why wasn't it discovered at a local level?

B/c the local level is incompetent and/or corrupt? Pathetic.

There's no reason for this....basic SOP should put in procedures, checks and balances, so this never happens or is detected early and ended. What changes will they make to ensure this?

Re: “Why don't you buy more art?

Who knew "artists" were so fragile and defensive? It's almost as if they are actually the children that their comments here and work suggest them to be.

@ butch -- Great comments. How can you build a house when you don't know how to use a hammer? Of course you can sell another's house or do a cartoon version. Warhol was quite successful at this.

@ realist -- I'm glad if you have some success. Perhaps you are "self-trained" or perhaps you have "talent." There are those few whose talent strides beyond the limits of training and medium to produce "art." Odds are there are only a few, one?, of these persons in Atlanta. Let me know who that person is....I will buy their art. Otherwise I'll seek out the work of well trained artists.

@ Sarah -- thanks for encouraging people to get out there.

A lot of people just want something sentimental or humorous in their art. There's plenty of that to sell. So don't fret. I need a new set of ceramic fish with lips to hang over the toilet.

Re: “Why don't you buy more art?

The "art" I've seen could be created by 10 to 20 year olds with absolutely no training or talent whatsoever. Paintings are crude and abstract b/c they can't actually draw the human form or detailed, accurate/realistic paintings. Not that realism should be the final result. However, I think, like have to demonstrate your skills in realistic depictions (as part of your training & oeuvre)...b/f you do an "abstract" or cartoon portrayal that I could do, but don't, b/c kids are doing it everyday with crayons.

Develop and show real talent...and people will buy your work. Perhaps display some realistic art projects with your your bona fides. I believe this is true b/c the abstract work of truly skilled and talented artists is informed by their underlying skill set.
