I appreciate this honest and realistic assessment of WTF 2016, and I applaud the bravery and audacity of Ashley Popio and all of the WTF collaborators for putting on the festival knowing that it was never going to be perfect. I am so glad we did not wait. I am so glad we did not try to find the right time. I am so glad we went for it.
Succeed or fail, Popio and all the women and allies who made WTF happen deserve major kudos. This has been long overdue and sorely needed in our theatrical community -- and beyond. Looking forward to seeing its continued growth and strength.
Voters are already offered free transportation and a free ID card. What more do people want? I have an idea, how about a wake up call? Darn GOP doesn't offer wake up calls!
There was also a potential clown sighting in Fayetteville -- http://wncn.com/2016/09/07/clown-sighting-…
A McCrory HB2 Satirical Song should help. http://www.thewinefellers.com/itunes/2016/…
I loved this performance. It was dark, very funny and incredibly entertaining.
Judge Michael Denning is the worst Judge. Not only does he do favors for his friends, he stated the discriminatory comment of "China wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for all the Chinese." How stupid does he think the people of NC are that they would ever want this clown in the Superior Court. He supports the horrible HB2 and has fundraisers with that loser McCrory. NC deserves good judges and fair judges. Judge Michael Denning needs to be impeached ASAP!!!
After listening to all the proponents and opponents of the DRM's plans, I still don't understand why the Council (under pressure by Preservation) could not have let the DRM have their lots to do what they wanted. They could easily have been excluded from the historic districting. It appears that many "newcomers" to the community have decided they don't want the "likes" of the people that use the Mission around their "neighborhood". For all the newbies, who was there first? The fact that property values are increasing anyway is not conducive to "affordable" housing as Preservation touts. Also, this is a high crime-ridden area (reason for the Mission being there in the first place), so maybe cleaning up the neighborhood before blaming the Mission's people would be a better start.
The problem that I see with this is that he is deducting things against his wage that aren't straight deductions. Like car lease. He is going to have that no matter what job he has. We all do. I don't deduct my car payments from my income and then complain that my company isn't paying for it - neither should these guys. And if they actually leased the cars just so they could become Uber drivers that was their decision not Ubers so Uber shouldn't be expected to pay their leases.
Well written and I am sure she is smiling down on all of you at PRC. I know you all will miss her always.
This guy took me to court and I had proof that I paid my rent. He so arrogant that he hung up in my face before I communicate with him. We get to court I show proof and all he can say is well age paid in cash I asked for money order,wtf "really but you got paid" he hushed Mr and I forgot I was in court. The judge literally laughed. To top it all the house was infested with termites and he told he that they will build a colony then leave no worries.Ummm I googled about termites and two weeks later I evacuated that spot. 704 Oak rd
They've made it to Greensboro -- http://www.journalnow.com/townnews/anatomy…
Impeach Judge Michael Denning!! Judge Michael Denning is a Family Court Judge whom stated "China wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for all the Chinese." Judge Michael Denning made a discriminatory comment as the Judge during a court hearing. There is no excuse for his behavior! There is no reason that he should be allowed to remain a Family Court Judge! He should be impeached. Judge Michael Denning is running for Superior Court Judge! He feels it is perfectly acceptable for him to make discriminatory comments as a Judge. The people of NC feel differently, Michael Denning! No one wants you as a Judge and certainly no one wants you in the Superior Court!!
POLITICS OF SELLING OUT AMERICA:
Clintons’ use government position for total corruption, and personal enrichment; taking millions from radical countries’ who rape, torture, honor kill, sadistically kill woman and gay people. -Sell out America.
Hillary has plans to bring millions of undocumented radicals to the U.S. based on radical countries pay for play concepts. Saudi Arabia refuses to take in any Syrian refugees because the risks of terrorism are too high. –Sell out America without care of the terror it will bring to the U.S.
Obama's policies have contributed to the massacre of Boston, L.A. and Orlando communities. – Sell out America by suppressing information about radical ties to terrorism.
IT'S A FORM OF SWINDLING-CON-DECEIT-TRICKERY-SCAM BY DEMS TO CALL PEOPLE NAMES IF THEY'RE NOT ACCEPTING OF BARBARISM. – To make it easier to Sell out America.
Stop calling Juggalos "evil clowns", it's triggering.
Doretta Walker has shown, time and again, a very tenuous grasp of both judicial decorum and legal precedure. She was a mediocre prosecutor and frankly a disaster on the bench. She should not be re-elected.
I went to The Durham last night with two friends. We are all Asian Americans. The place is shit for people of color. Bougie as fuck. We attempted to sit down at a clearly empty couch outside and got told by a white waiter to stand up because it was reserved for a party of (guess what!) white people, who weren't even using it. So we stood there for no damn reason, threw back our drinks, and left. The only people who bother commenting on indyweek articles online, it seems, are a bunch of white people. The Durham is gentrification EMBODIED. White people will take your city, your businesses, your money, but not YOU.
Yes, DO BETTER, DURHAM.
I, like Mr. Cho, hope some positives can come out of this. I would say that if, going forward, establishments in the Triangle require a signed complaint and a positive ID from said complainant (sp?), then incidents like this could require accountability of the accuser, and that would certainly be a positive. As it is, we'll never know if this was simply a case of mistaken identity or something less innocent, such as the petulant behavior of a resentful (would-be) colleague.
Seems my comment of yesterday disappeared. I think there was a lack of communication, along with overreaction of the person that felt he was discriminated against. I think he could have straightened it out if he wanted to.
I also think that a so-called upscale hotel would have a more upscale dress code. From the pictures I saw, it looked as though people were going to the baseball game.
It really depends on the funding. Since there hasn't been a formal comparison of funds, it's difficult to compare the two.
