Bob Dumas: is that pronounced dumb ass?
please advise how to report blatent malpractice by an orthopedic surgeon. I am a PACU RN (recovery room). I and many of my colleagues have observed repeated incompetence by an orthopedic surgeon resulting in huge blood loss, infection , fractured femursetc etc after hip replacements, knee replacements and even simple hardware removal and very prolonged PACU stays (as long as 8-10 hours) due to low blood pressure etc. His patients also frequently require unplanned ICU admissions.
This is not the person I have known for over 6 plus years! What an outrage and hopefully we will hear the truth come out one way or the other.
I think it's "tweet", not "tweat" (Quite right -- correction made. Thanks!)
"There is no such thing as women literature for me, that does not exist. In literature, I do not separate women and men. One is a writer, or one is not. This is a mental space where sex is not determining. One has to have some space for freedom. Language allows this. This is about building an idea of the neutral which could escape sexuality". -Monique Wittig
I think the same notion should apply to music. There should be no distinction as to whether a performer is male or female. They should just simply be a musician.
Let me just say that this quote by Ms. Shane is irresponsible and uneducated- "The Triangle is host to plenty of female musicians, but Durham's Betsy Shane laments that most of them are bass players: "It's kind of like that indie rock clich."
Did she really say that or is that the writer twisting her words? Really, this just a list of bands that to come mind that aren't indie rock cliche's.
The Dirty Little Heaters
Un Deux Trois
The Curtains of Night
The Virgo 9
This is not a complete list by far, just what pops into my mind. None of the female musicians are in these playing bass, and if they were what is wrong with that? It's not cliche. Shirle Hale, back in the day, played bass in a riot grrrl band and is still a very successful bass player. Anne Gomez is a complete bad ass, and is certainly not a cliche in CGJ. Or how about Eleni Binge who plays drums and the guitar at the same time?
I think the cliche here might be Ms. Shane.
Personally, I think the city wants that land for their own purposes. Look at what happened to King's in Raleigh. Durham is "moving on up" and they obviously have an idea of the kind of culture they want represented. Sadly, for us that appreciate the strange and interesting, it's being whitewashed. It all goes hand in hand with all the renovation of all those downtown buildings that are being yuppified.
I saw the bohemian element in Chapel Hill become replaced by martini bars, and I think the same thing is going to happen to Durham.
Homogenization is at work, and I am not talking about milk.
