Re: “Clearwater's historic Capitol Theatre gets an epic makeover

Homer - you know there is more than one definition of 'epic,' right? And yes, I would say the theater is majestic, impressively great, spectacular, etc.

Rolanda - info about how the money was raised was included in the first several stories written about the venue; I wasn't trying to write a 'report' or a news story so much as a feature offering a look at the new theater a month deep into its opening. Capitol Theatre is a nonprofit venture owned by the City of Clearwater and operated by Ruth Eckerd Hall Foundation (also a nonprofit); fundraisers, grants and patron donations are typically the methods employed to raise capital for nonprofits. The City purchased the building; REH raised the funds, managed the renovation and is operating the venue.

Re: “Clearwater's historic Capitol Theatre gets an epic makeover

So who paid for all this, the $10.7 million? Would have been good to include that information in your report/article, don't ya think ??

Re: “Clearwater's historic Capitol Theatre gets an epic makeover

What does poetry or grandness have to do with the makeover of the theatre? Maybe you should look up the definition of epic.

Re: “Photo review: Sunshine Music & Blues Festival in St. Petersburg

Great photo spread.

It was a good event and the music was fantastic.

It is too bad that a lot of people go to concerts to talk, text and act like they are at a bar competing with canned music.

Re: “Commentary: The most important American musical artist of the last 50 years is …

It's a further tribute to the mystique and the aura that surrounds Dylan that his accomplishments as a recording artist are still scrutinized in these types of debates. He and his work have consistently been a source of contention between his believers and his detractors. For this reason, and dozens more, my vote in this poll goes to Bob. No other artist has been able to polarize the opinions and beliefs of music lovers for damn near fifty years now. Oh, and the pile of amazing, ground-breaking, immensely influential albums he's released throughout his reign are pretty good reasons to give him the nod as well.

Re: “10 Songs for Civil Rights & Martin Luther King Jr. Day

No mention of U2 - Pride (In the Name of Love)?

One man come in the name of love
One man come and go
One man come, he to justify
One man to overthrow

In the name of love
One more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love?

One man caught on a barbed wire fence
One man he resists
One man washed on an empty beach
One man betrayed with a kiss

In the name of love
One more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love?

Early morning, April 4
Shot rings out in the Memphis sky
Free at last!, they took your life
They could not take your pride

In the name of love
One more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love?
In the name of love
One more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love?

I am so excited to try permanent makeup! I am so tired of the monotony of putting it on every morning!

Didn't Elvis cop the majority of his music from other (not famous, African American) blues artists? So, what does that say about Elvis?

Not sure what you mean by the last sentence — in fact, I have no clue what you mean.

Elvis was done, kaput, over by 1964, although he lived a little while longer.

James who? I wasn’t a big fan of the greasy crooner even when he was a alive, but there is no comparing the all-time King of the Charts, Elvis Presley, with his staggering 167 Gold and Multi-platinum albums, who is still earning millions today - whose presence caused riots, hips sold movies, songs launched a wave-front of new music and money inspired musicians - to a man most people have never heard of, whose words are barely comprehensible and who is NOT on the best-selling charts!

That is like saying Gandhi was the leader of the American civil rights movement because the philosopher influenced Martin Luther King.

Re: “Incessant killjoy Kanye West sues creators of Bitcoin-like currency, Coinye West

for reference, nothing is shut down!!! (NOTE as a crypto enthusiast I personally do not care for coinye for several personal reasons). Once released and soon to be supported by distributed (peer to peer) exchanges there is nothing that can be shut down... No person to sue or machine to turn off. For good or bad, I can testify it is alive as much now as ever and technically unstoppable. Even if Google was to censor the site they can still exist on the so called dark web (silk road). Even the domain names if they use the .bit exchange can not be seized or censored by any authority (not that the foreign governments are rushing to help Kanye). Kanye can spend all he wants on lawyers, all he accomplishing is showing how immune crypto is from the rule or law. He is single handily performing the greatest public service to the crypto community to date.. And it is all on his dollar.

Re: “The Hip Hop ABC's: Letter A

IDK who Atmosphere is either, but I will certainly give it a good listen while slamming weights at the gym... Cause that's what gansta rappers do. (Lol, seriously)

I did participate in a lot of your posts. I am in the second group on this though. I did not know Atmosphere was a group.
