If the picture is any indication of portion size it's likely I won't be donating any of my hard earned, full sized, money to the cause. The idea of thimble sized portions and tasty nibbles has become far too acceptable with the general "fool yourself into thinking you're cool" public. As long as we allow this to happen we will always be at the mercy of those who laugh at our cravings to be "in". I was privy to overhear a conversation between a couple of clothing designers a few years ago when the topic was what the public would were, laughing one said he/she planned to have women wearing pants almost up to their knees. The following season it became true. So pardon me if I keep my dignity and sanity by deciding for myself what to wear and the size of my meal portions. I don't desire being super sized by the fast food industry nor do I plan to starve while cooks grow fatter on what I wasn't offered.
What bunk!! You kids are so out of touch with the music scene you'll agree with any agrophob who tells you the scene doesn't exist....I've been here in the scene since 67 and I can tell you that from the days of Piedmont Park, ABB and more, to the early days of Punk, 688, through the begining of L5P, Indigo Girls and more, people have used Atlanta for a launching pad. Lame writers don't a trend or non-trend make. Don't pay this dweeb any attention. Pay attention to the music around you it's everywhere and a lot of people are listening. Just because somebody says is ain't don't make it so...lamebrains!!
