Re: “Hell Is Hot: How Squirrel Nut Zippers Accidentally Sold a Million Records

Great article, thorough and well-researched. Plus oral histories are a cool way to tell a first-hand authentic story. Too bad Katharine didn't want to be interviewed, but what can you do.

Re: “Live: Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa Puff Puff Pass in Raleigh

Last paragraph is just more proof there is a double standard when it comes to justice.

Re: “Charlotte Is Losing the All-Star Game

This is infuriating. Millions in lost revenue just so our ass backwards legislature can discriminate against people. Throw the bums out.

Re: “Bruce Springsteen Cancels Sunday's Greensboro Show Over HB 2

The "common sense" defense only serves to illustrate those proclaiming it have no empathy or ability to even comprehend or fathom a point of view different than their own.

Re: “Live: How Star Trek: The Ultimate Voyage Left Me Stranded in Space

I know exactly how you felt. I attended with my Father-in-law and had mixed feelings. The music was spectacular and well played. The editing on the video portion was excellent and I liked the few VO segments from Worf.

However, overall I wasn't sure exactly what this was. A concert? A celebration of 50 years of Trek with highlight clips? It evoked nostalgia without giving us anything new or anything to look forward to. Maybe they didn't think people would sit through what was essentially a classical music concert without distracting you with the video clips. You said it well, the show did feel "like a Wikipedia article set to music or like watching out-of-context YouTube clips."

On the other hand, DPAC looked to be almost completely sold and any gig for working classical musicians is a good one, so maybe this video-retrospective-set-to-live-music is a new form of entertainment to fill theaters between plays and concerts.

Re: “12 things I learned in my first year in the Triangle

Welcome. And glad that you discovered the most important point in November. Durham rocks! Very much overlooked and under-appreciated. But if it means keeping the real estate affordable, I'll take it.
