Re: “Talking to The Pour House about its canceled Black Pussy show

... we should understand why a club owner would cancel a show, they have every prerogative to do so , especially after such an over-reaction from threatening do-gooders. headlining Black Pussy on show flyers stapled all over town would probably gain more attention than usual, even from people whose musical experience hasn't gone further than AM radio - today is definitely not the Hillsborough Street punk/hardcore scene from the early 80's anymore, music culture has become like sappy jelly just like its listeners - maybe change the name to Black Pansies

Re: “Residents at the Velvet Cloak Inn rise up against property owners in legal fight that has ramifications for North Carolina

... a Raleigh classic that sadly has fallen by the wayside - too bad some shit like a North Hills development or other recent Raleighwood fake facade look will be built on the site unless this icon property and building can be saved.

Re: “Residents sue over jacked-up property values

... similar has happened to the Raleigh area and the Outer Banks. Metro-Raleigh may have actually benefited from outsiders encroaching into neighborhoods and skyrocketing living costs, but the Outer Banks now looks like another eyesore resembling Virginia Beach or Jersey Shore with blinding beachcomber freak stores and over-consumptious housing. 'Out of state imports' ruined their own towns and cities and are on the crusade to ruin what remains of a pleasant North Carolina, overpopulating the region with minimum-clearance building codes (i.e. melting walls in the summer) ; and... Now with fracking, potentially polluting our life support systems, and planning off-shore drilling, with the constant threat of massive hurricanes, NC's slogan may change to; "I like calling North Carolina foam."
