Re: “Warped Tour less a concert than a lesson in survival

In Rev. Peyton's defense, his band is much more suited to an intimate setting. I was very happy that they got the chance have the exposure of the Warped Tour, and I hope it means more people come to support them when they play at Knuckleheads.

Re: “The Clerks Soundtrack 15 Years On

Very cool. Last time I was back east, I made the pilgrimage to the Quickstop and partook in a cigarette right where Silent Bob once stood. The movie makes the store feel much bigger than it really is, and the video store is now an empty shell with a few sun-faded video cassettes in the window. The empty field you can see across the street during the hockey scene is now filled with townhouses.

Re: “Two Sides to the Piracy Debate

My father, Jim Spencer, has worked as a jazz and classical trumpet player in KC for the past 45 years. He has never had retail music sales as a source of income. Teaching music lessons, and playing live music are his life, and he still works at age 71.

The only time I am willing to purchase a CD is if the artist whom I just watched perform hands it to me themselves. I love supporting local artists and local music by attending as many live shows as possible. Human beings have been making music for thousands of years, recorded media has only be around for a century or two. Live performance will always be the core of the art.

Re: “Is the Obama-as-Joker sign racist?

Allen - I probably should have prefaced my comment with the statement that I am a massive comic book geek, and that I thought the protesters could have picked a more creative image that Heath Ledger's Joker. The implied metaphor between the pic of an anarchist, and the socialism title beneath is silly and ill-contrived. You read way too much Obama worship into my comment.

Re: “Is the Obama-as-Joker sign racist?

Given that the Joker was an anarchist, not a socialist, the poster is a cheap use of pop culture to provoke a reaction. Weak.
