"we can do better, atlanta."
I don't think we can. Unfortunately I have to agree with Vox. Georgia is never going to be anything but garbage until the majority of voters pulls their heads out of their asses and stops voting for criminals.
On view, Ernesto Torres' still of the film "Girl with a Pearl Earring," with Scarlett Johannson as the Girl herself!
Stan McCollum Gallery is pleased to present:

I have gone to 8 Bonnaroo's. About five years ago MTV bought the Bonnaroo farm from Superfly. It has gone down hill from that point on. It was all general admission. Today we have a V.I.P. section that gets bigger each year, MTV is out to make as much money as possible. THe five dollar beer is now a ten dollar beer. They have put huge buildings in front of the stage (beer stands and huge light stands and sound stands). They have a beer tent next to the" Which" tent (this is the 2nd largest stage). The sound is worse at this stage than anyother. Do not plan on seeing anything on this stage because a beer tent is now in the back of the "Which" tent area and they have a band that plays for about 50 drunks and the sound is as loud as the "Which" tent, the second largest stage. They do not like to turn the sound up on the "Which" stage, until people complain. The people camping are great and you will have a good time. They sell so many tickets that you can not get close enough to the stage to hear it that well (you could in the early days). You can do any drug in the open or on the camp sight. They sort of check for illegal drugs when you go in. MTV means more rap. They tried heavy metal but it did not go over well. All of this cuts in on the Folk, rock, jam bands and alternate rock. You get a lot of MTV crap. I had a good time and Paul was worth the price of admission. Wilco, Byrne, Sheepdog, same trailer different park, were great but a lot of the stuff you could not hear. I don;t understand why they have a comedy tent but they do, it's MTV crap.
New design with wider opening, clear views of the skyline, and addition of greenspace on current dome site is great. This plan will become an icon of the city. It will dwarf jerry's world in arlington.
Hopefully D.A. Robert James got his sights adjusted properly. A case like this can make or break a politico's career.
Especially for one who is an elected official.
And especially in the south.
If a man is going after the king, he better not miss.
Was it too soon to post this since we have not heard a show in a while? Nothing this week anyway
No Broch. The DA just works for The Man.
I mean most of the people who take the whole "I could make that for cheaper at home," line aren't going to be happy until it's free.
"It nothing more than racism in action, the man is always trying to keep a brother down."
It's the same excuse for every transgressor caught, accompanied by the same incorrect grammar.
Who is the man in this version - the DA?
It nothing more than racism in action, the man is always trying to keep a brother down.
Boy, what I'd pay to see www's cast emerge from a clown car. Reminds me of those old movies from when I was a kid that "starred" Chuck Conners, Telly Savalas, Jim Brown, Ernest Borgnine, Mickey Rooney and Shelley Winters.
What a fuckfest! ROTFL just to keep from crying.
I sincerely apologize for not proofreading.
They are all sociaopaths. Damn good ones at that.
Yet voters continually vote for people that actively defraud them.
Amazingly Atlanta can't even seem to field a half way decent alternative candidate.
Then again why would anyone who is honest dollar bother running given the state of Georgia politics?
burrell ellis, victor hill, bill campbell, nathan deal, mitch skandalakis, kasim reed, beverly hall, etc, etc, etc.
we can do better, atlanta.
Not one picture of Foals, the best band in the world!?
Best of luck to Candidate Bartell....it will be an uphill battle:
"Officials are questioning if a flawed registration database has allowed voters to cast fraudulent ballots after Fulton’s Information technology department found 10,000 people registered at vacant lots and vacant buildings throughout the county.
The investigation started after elections Interim Director Sharon Mitchell found that 122 people were still registered at demolished Atlanta public housing projects, when they voted in November. Mitchell and staff have not found any change-of-address forms for the 122 voters in question [meaning that these were not provisional ballots]...."
Why isn't the cocktail competition on Friday? Seems to me like that would be the better choice. Overall it looks like a great event and I can't wait!
40 years of food for thought .... very worth reading.
I just have a long memory and I know how the folks at City Hall work.
You think its something for the city; I know it's just another scheme to get a few dollars out the door.
As are moving Cultural Affairs to the mayor's office and hiring 50 or so new employees to the department.
