Re: “Moral Monday pots & pans protest kicks off General Assembly short session

I don't understand why "people" like ProudlyAffiliated enjoy eating toxic sewage from their own butholes? Republicans have done a great job of lobotomizing North Carolina.

Re: “In search of free mulberries

Weaver Street Coop in Carrboro has a small tree on the edge of the front yard. It bends over one of the wooden benches near the Weaver Street sidewalk. Some berries are already ripe, but gusty winds knock off the sweetest, ripest one easily.

Re: “Moral Monday pots & pans protest kicks off General Assembly short session

Job creation and educational freedom? Do these people actually believe their own BS, or do they just assume we're stupid?

If you're not angry, you're not paying attention.

Re: “N.C.'s Senate Commerce Committee fast-tracks fracking, tries to prevent recording of meeting

And according to other reports, even Tom Apodaca couldn't come up with a rule that prohibits recording in an open meeting. Gunn dodged the question, deferring to the sergeant-at-arms who ALSO said there wasn't such a rule. Apparently, there have been sightings of recorders all over the place in meeting rooms where there were closed-door meetings.

Transparency in action I tell ya.

Re: “Moral Monday pots & pans protest kicks off General Assembly short session

Hey ProudlyUnaffliated, maybe you should attend a Moral Monday and witness the strength and conviction behind the throngs of people who care so deeply about our state and will not rest knowing why the GOP of NC is doing to it. Or you could just sit back and do nothing except make snarky uninformed comments like these

Re: “Shake your tree: It's time to pick mulberries in the city

My lady and I visited the mulberry tree on Vickers this past Saturday and quickly picked enough mulberries to make a nice cobbler. There are lots more mulberries to be had.

Re: “Two years later, Amendment One is already overdue for the scrap heap

Memo to the LGBTQ community: we don't care what you do. But, and this is crucial, we don't want our nose rubbed in what you do. So, do us all a favor, go and enjoy yourselves privately and discreetly much like civilized adults behave everywhere. In short, go back into the closet. Thank you.

Re: “Moral Monday pots & pans protest kicks off General Assembly short session

Moral Monday resorting to banging pots and pans copied from Latin America is proof that this latest street theater has run out of steam and is finished. Place it on the bookshelf next to Occupy Wall Street.

Re: “Live: People still care about Conor Oberst?

First article I have ever read by INDY Week's music blog,and the last.
That's how much I despised this.High school journalism at its finest,with an editor-in-chief that is as undeveloped as this writer is.
Cheers,Miss Hussey,for adding more waste onto the internet.

Re: “Live: People still care about Conor Oberst?

Gotta just plain snicker at anyone who calls Taylor Goldsmith's (Dawes) exquisite lyrics "clunky". Ever in your life read any real poetry? And dismissing Dawes elegant and complex harmonies with a "power chords" put-down? Bruce, my eye. Have a real listen next time.

Re: “Live: People still care about Conor Oberst?

What a horrible, completely biased, poorly written review. Allison Hussey is now a laughing stock in the world of music journalism. Conor put on a great show! The new songs mixed very well with the old (Bright Eyes songs). It's a shame you had such an awful time at the opening night (for the new tour) of our generation's greatest songwriter. You're grandmother probably trashed Bob Dylan's show in 1974.....

Thanks for the heads-up, Lisa.

Re: “Live: People still care about Conor Oberst?

This truly is a horrible review from someone who obviously has no idea what they are talking about. You are not familiar with Conor oberst's body of work as you failed to recognize his new work from his previous solo efforts. I hope this reviewing thing isn't your day job, Allison Hussey. What a shame, that this kind of garbage gets to float around on the internet. What a shame.

Re: “Good news for the goats and Prodigal Farm

Donate $125 or more and you get to name a baby goat and look at his picture each day while you eat cheese made from milk stolen from his mother that should go to feed him. I wonder if this is included in the $500 donation price so that you can have him or his mom slaughtered for their flesh, too?
-----
#11 [GOAT LOVE] -- Name one of the baby goats born this year (you'll need to pick a name beginning with "h"). Remember your little friend every day with a digital picture of your namesake, a beautiful stoneware mug crafted by artisan Evelyn Ward. You'll also receive a 4 oz. tub of Prodigal Farm chevre in the flavor of your choice. For pickup at one of our farmers' market locations in Raleigh, Durham or Chapel Hill, or at one of our open farm days.
Estimated delivery: May 2014
Pledge $125 or more

Re: “Good news for the goats and Prodigal Farm

How is this good news for the goats? It simply means more goats will be enslaved for their milk and slaughtered for their flesh.

To illustrate this false and sociopathic idea of "animal welfare", look what you get if you donate $500 or more to Prodigal Farm in the Kickstarter campaign:
-----
#17 [GOAT GOURMET] -- One whole goat, custom processed to your specifications (we're happy to consult), providing many delicious meals of pastured, Animal Welfare Approved goat meat from Prodigal Farm. You'll receive approximately 50 pounds of meat (fresh or frozen, as you wish), and a compendium of recipes to provide both easy and elegant meal inspirations. For pickup at one of our farmers' market locations in Raleigh, Durham or Chapel Hill or delivery to your home in the urban Triangle.
Estimated delivery: Jul 2014
Pledge $500 or more

Re: “Live: People still care about Conor Oberst?

What an absolutely horrendous review from someone who clearly doesn't understand the song writing talents of both of these artists, Dawes and Conor Oberst. Their work and ability to write songs is well beyond anything that exists within the mainstream chart today and what gives you the right to talk this shallow rubbish. When talking about his latest material, you clearly haven't done your research either as 'there's nothing the road cannot heal' comes from 'Moab'...Conor Oberst's work with the mystic valley band. I think he's gone back to his usual writing approaches with this new album and so saying you use to be a bright eyes fan is a totally redundant statement. Check the new album out, do your research and appreciate this good music you poor excuse for a reviewer.
