[quote][b]Curls[/b] - Mr. Knapp will also be acting dean of the UGA business school. Funny Dick did not mention that.
His ex-wife has come out and said she doesn't have HPV. Everybody will now be giving Catherine Zeta-Jones the side eye.posted @ Monday, June 3, 2013 - 15:34
@Anonymous Dude: This one definitely surpassed Garth Brooks in 1994 when I was in 8th grade. I'm contemplating seeing Jason, Jake and Thomas Rhett in Greenville next month it was so good LOL!posted @ Friday, April 19, 2013 - 21:06
@GroversMill: I'm 32. I wouldn't say I'm a "youngster." It's kind of hard to see some of the greats like Elvis Presley, Conway Twitty or the Beatles (all together) when they're dead (for the most part).posted @ Friday, April 19, 2013 - 21:04

Maybe I had a secret reason for saying "seize" instead of "cease"?
Okay, I tried.

@dcbasham: So that means every story/blog post about an upcoming show, event, etc. is an ad, is that what you're saying?
To me, it's not an ad. If you feel that way, than I can't help that. Sorry.posted @ Saturday, March 23, 2013 - 15:41
[quote][b]Watchman[/b] - @ Karah L Hancock:
If you are going to write an article honoring this good man, at least get the facts straight! He was not responding to an officer being shot. He was sitting in his car writing a report when the events unfolded and Jamie Hood shot two officers and then ran past his car and shot him through the window. Buddy was no threat to Hood. He was victim of being in Hood's path as he fled after shooting two officers.
Incorrect articles can alter the outcomes of future trials, so get it straight.
Buddy Christian was a good man and a friend to everyone who met him. Let's at least get that accurate.

@Save our Republic: Tony Stewart throwing his helmet is awesome.
I miss his antics on the track with showing his personality. Since he became an owner, he's toned it down. Last year's helmet thing was just... awesome.posted @ Thursday, February 21, 2013 - 18:14

[quote][b]hitman[/b] - this sucks... thses guys can not sell it out like a rap artist could.. Jay Z, or Lil Wayne, Drake,Mariah Carey, Beyonce,many more to name just to many. This town always having big stuff for these crusty crappy folks and they the ones who leave the town dirty as crap after 2am.
With Atlanta so close, no one like that would ever come here. Trust me, I'd love to see Mariah. I saw Beyonce with Destiny's Child and it wasn't that great of a show.posted @ Sunday, January 27, 2013 - 18:01
[quote][b]soulpen[/b] - yep.. pretty bad pop country. I'm sure there are some Nashville greats that are still kicking around, some folks who still remember being on hee haw or the grand ol' opry. Heck just some good ol' boys from the picking parties up from a chicken shack in the hills has got to sound better than the pop they play on the top 40 country airwaves these days.. How about some James Mcmurtry, or some Robert Earl Keen, Steve Earl maybe..now that's some good stuff right there, folks who sing without hip hop samples, booty dancers, and sing about real farms being lost not bad rhymes. God bless the Louvin Bros., Roy Acuff, Waylon, and Johnny Cash. I'll bet these new guys can't play real country, you need a country soul, not a runaway to Nashville one. A businessman doesn't get blisters on his hand writing songs based on formulas in Nashville. Just cause you bought an Earnest Tubb t-shirt, walked down music row, and bought your "canadian" whiskey at Frugal Macdoogles it doesn't make you country. These boys/businessmen need to take the money and run, they'll just get washed up on the riverside with Justin Bieber and Britnney Spears in ten years anyway.
The sad fact is... none of those artist will sell as many tickets as this show did (besides Bieber and Britney that you mentioned). Asleep at the Wheel is a great band, but they are playing at Melting Point.
I have watched one of my favorite bands go from selling out the Georgia Dome to playing small clubs and back to selling out Phillips Arena. Musical taste change throughout the years... and as great as Steve Earl is, he'd never sell out Sanford Stadium.posted @ Sunday, January 27, 2013 - 18:00
Wait a while and they may have an Ernest Tubb concert.
Might be waiting a while for that one.... he's dead.posted @ Thursday, January 24, 2013 - 13:01

Summary: I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
