Re: “King James Version

While I am all for critical discourse, dude above sounds like one of those people who, if you wrote an article about someone with dark brown hair and you wrote that he had chestnut hair, because that's how YOU saw it, he would write an angry essay.

Also, people who drink their faces off -- like these musicians do at gigs -- are def considered "discombobulated" by the majority of americans. So there's your subjectivity getting it twisted.

Also: who cares. It's a cover band. And this is just to bring people to their show (it's not technically a "review"). Sounds like you're saying to the writer "why'd you add all that extra crap" but now I would ask the same of you.

Re: “On pit bulls and writing about your best friends

I have to say, I was excited to see this on the cover, but then thought the story was extremely thin. For a problem that is set largely within the Afriacn America community, there should have been more black voices, ones that didn't agree with each other. Instead we get, more or less, another SPCA add, wherein the most interesting numbers seem to have come from a single press release about pit bulls. This story could have so many angles, and so much depth, but the reporter seems to have just talked to the first few relevant people, ie. the easiest to talk to. This story deserved some snooping, some brave questions posed to strangers. You should have searched around and talked to a rogue breeder, or just...something besides white pitbull activists and one black guy who adopted a pit with the best of intentions. Especially since it's a cover story, there should have been a lot more work put into this.

Re: “Big changes at Bacchanal

Yes, it is important to remember that Hubba Hubba Tattoos closes before Bacchanal's music starts. The owners go home to their house. Today I found out that once they are at their house far away, they call the police about Bacchanal's music. The cops have shown up before the musicians have even set up their equipment.

And there is overwhelming evidence that the only voice of complaint has come from Hubba Hubba Tattoo shop. Or, has come from their house across the neighborhood.

Re: “The Rap Game

Saying that we "accidentally" captured some awesome music from the kids is like saying a math teacher worked his butt off teaching his students math, and in the end they "accidentally" got A's on their tests.

Still, thanks GAMBIT!

Re: “A Tribute to Prince

Somebody else just did this same thing a month ago. Then they did it again headlining the Krewe Du Vieux party. What's this dude's deal stealing their idea?
