Re: “A tale of two memes: The Triangle backstories of a pair of recent viral video sensations

There is a long list of benefits that can come out of a successful viral marketing campaign for your business. The most obvious benefit would be reaching out to a wider range of potential clients in the least amount of time. This is where Web ‘n Retail has been the most successful! With at least 20 years of music marketing experience and over 250 artist campaigns and non-music related projects under their belt, they are undoubtedly efficient in taking your business and maneuvering through the crowded spaces of the internet and finding your core audience.

To run a viral marketing campaign means much more than getting your business/brand out to the largest audience. In fact, the best campaign is to create loyal clients for your business that will not lose interest as the trends in social media continue to change. Web ‘n Retail guarantees that by the end of your campaign, your business will have reaped the rewards of placing your name in front of the right audience.

Re: “Durham’s Best (OK, Only) Rare Tuba Museum Opens to the Public

I've been waiting for over a decade to get in there without feeling like I'm wasting anyone's time. Now I can go there guilt free! Nice article! Amazing collection!

Re: “Indies Arts Awards: Durham poet Dasan Ahanu uses hip-hop education and action to inspire more work

Durham's history is so rich--and unique within NC-- that our city needs its own Poet Laureate Program. This place has a vibrant identity, and I can't think of anyone who voices it more eloquently than Dasan. Durham Mighty Pen has done a lot of research about the growth of city-wide Poet Laureate Programs (and Youth Poet Laureate programs!) and has started a facebook page to gather support for a petition to the mayor and city council. If you are interested in signing the petition to create a Poet Laureate Program for Durham, please follow the movement here: https://www.facebook.com/APoetLaureateforDurham/

Re: “Local bearded man attends beard competition, flees in mortal terror

Criticizing Grayson's wife's appearance does not contribute to the conversation. The comments section is the equivalent of the INDY's bar. If you don't follow the rules, you don't get to drink here.

Re: “Local bearded man attends beard competition, flees in mortal terror

What rules did it violate? It was no different than some of the other comments that still stand here. Also, he can attack others in his editorial, but people attacking him is not allowed? Lame.

Re: “Local bearded man attends beard competition, flees in mortal terror

CJ's most recent comment was deleted because it violated the INDY's comment policy.

Re: “Local bearded man attends beard competition, flees in mortal terror

Grayson Currin is a jaded, snark try-hard. Left out a huge detail as to why this is event was created in the first place? Not shocking, it would undermine his ability to mock the people involved and over-contextualize the meaning behind it in order to appear intelligent. Hey Grayson, you're a clown and Raleigh knows it. Even your friends speak ill of you behind your back. Grow up and get a life.

Re: “With foam and felt, a local puppeteer tries to make a mainstream career and a case for cannabis

A minor correction: I'm the retired Town Manager of Knightdale, not Wake Forest.

We did a background check on Chris before we agreed to do the Kidz Newz with him. The puppets he uses for the Kidz Newz is different than he uses for the Green Report and he's never been arrested.

As for my opinion about legalizing marijuana, I have no use for it, but it's obvious that continuing to spend billions of dollars to fight it, the smart thing would be to legalize and regulate it. We should have learned our lesson with prohibition of alcohol. Same thing.

Re: “With foam and felt, a local puppeteer tries to make a mainstream career and a case for cannabis

Saw the Indy cover and immediately knew I had to read the article. I really love that he uses his puppetry for both the community access kids show, and pro-cannabis YouTube puppet show. The article took a hard turn when it delved into the conspiracy theories. Occam's razor is a fantastic concept! It's a pity that the most plausible idea to some involves such amazing complexity.

Re: “Indies Arts Awards: Girls Rock NC shifts the rock band dialogue, one summer camp at a time

Girls Rock has been a powerful influence in my daughters' lives. It's incredibly helpful to have people other than their parents telling them that as girls, they're strong and they're smart and what they have to say is important. Thanks, Girls Rock!

Re: “Indies Arts Awards: Van Alston uses his bars and bank account to boost bands

Van is a big hearted cantankerous dude. I worked with him back in the early 90s at Crowleys of Stonehenge right before he opened the Comet. I was a cook and he tended the bar a few nights a week. He would always lend a poor soul a twenty and buy you a beer. He let me work the door for his Comet winter solstice party and I made more in four hours than I made in two weeks cooking. I sorely needed that money. He rocked then and he rocks now. Thanks Van.
