Re: NPR piece from Patterson

I forget how long ago this was, but do you remember the Nazi march in Skokie? If not I'll be happy to provide some, errrrr, context ;) The ACLU represented the Nazis and supported their right to march. So did I. Am I correct in thinking you wouldn't? This is the distillation of the means v. ends ak...

Re: NPR piece from Patterson

Appreciate the thorough responses, Bubba. Ultimately I think we basically agree on 99% of this issue. These companies are not our friends, they are not doing any of this to be noble - they just want good press and to make a buck. And the specific nature of the "context" they might provide could stil...

As everyone whoever watched TV knows, lawyers are obligated to represent clients needing representation.

Re: NPR piece from Patterson

Patterson is spot on re: Gone with the Wind. Though I understand why some might be squeamish about what he wrote in the op-ed, I wish he didn’t have to explain himself. I studied Triumph of the Will and Birth of a Nation in school, where they could be placed in the proper context: as masterful piece...

Re: NPR piece from Patterson

I don’t envy you Facebook folks; I can only imagine the shitstorm this is causing over there. Personally I find it hard to imagine the name has caused much harm or offense to anyone - other than possibly the band themselves, by turning off potential fans who might assume they’re a novelty act. But I...

Re: Jason Isbell - Reunions

I agree with TC. Only a couple of listens in but I think it’s good. Unlike many of you I’ve liked most of Jason’s post-Southeastern work, but Reunions is at least more adventurous than the last couple of records. It’s also the first Jason album since Here We Rest that is at all congruent with DBT’s ...

Re: DBT Quarantine Livestreams

I too have been following and loving these write-ups, Cortez.

Plus Half Smiles felt like such a perfect swan song to me that it seems a shame to pile on so...

Grammatical nit: Either "no two of them sound alike" or "not one of them sounds like any other." I am ashamed. I blame lack of sleep and/or my editor.

Re: The Unraveling

Of all the songs on the album I've heard them play live (so everything but that second Cooley song), this one has always been my favorite, and the studio version delivers. Love that little guitar lick Cooley (?) is doing, and Jay's piano is sublime.

Lastly, and I think this goes for a lot of us "regulars", the weekend is not all about the shows. Yes, I go to all of them, but I believe I could go and not attend and be good. It is more about the friends you have made over the years and in many case only see a few times a year. The meet up, Nuci'...

This has the potential to be one of the most memorable events in Heathens history. Wish I could go (to the Rock Show and this) but the mental image of you lot hanging out at a drag show is reward enough.
