Re: “Seizure Man specializes in cassettes

Did you ask why they chose the name "Seizure Man" for the label? I'd really like to know.

What are they trying to insinuate with this as the name of a music label? Do either Jacob or Molly understand what a seizure really is?

As a proud Pittsburgher, who has epilepsy, I hope this name isn't meant to be cynical or judgmental...

Re: “Pittsburgh CLO's Ring of Fire

This review is definitely harsher than it needs to be but, still, the production ain't great. The version of the script I am familiar with tells much more of Cash's story while this version tells a bare minimum. If you're going to perform an evening of Cash's music, imitation-style or not, you need to have at least one male voice with some weight to it. These guys, while fine singers, had light, tenors. There were even times when beautiful, well-executed harmony sections were lacking bottom end. The cast was not helped by the anemic sound design. I understand the desire to keep the volume at a pleasant level for theatre-goers but some instruments, particularly the electric guitar, were barley audible (and I won't even get into the lack of tone on that Strat). On top of all that, there were many moments when performers looked unengaged or even bored, particularly the two younger guys. Guess what, fellas...just cuz you ain't singin' lead doesn't mean no one sees your dead eyes while you think about your grocery list.

Re: “Pittsburgh CLO's Ring of Fire

In the performance I saw- the banjo player was yawning, the woman was incredibly off pitch and hard to listen to, and there was very little energy. Only one or two of them truly captured the Cash essence. The female tried to embody June Carter and just couldn't pull it off. It should have been advertised as a concert. Very disappointed.

Re: “Anti-immigrant sentiment reaches fever pitch over Central American child refugees

These parasitic criminal invaders are not "refugees". They are illegal aliens..... you know, common criminals. Comrade Obama's corrupt regime has a habit of simply re-naming things that suit their Marxist agenda.

Re: “Anti-immigrant sentiment reaches fever pitch over Central American child refugees

I hope Tom Corbett and those on the right do "look into the background of this" because they'll see the history of us propping us right wing dictators, over-throwing centrist and left leaning elected officials, dumping industrial waste, destroying whole economic sectors, deporting violent gang members, lusting after illegal drugs (which created the cartels), and generally causing this refugee crisis.

Now we want to refuse the refugees that our actions caused, WTF????

Re: “Anti-immigrant sentiment reaches fever pitch over Central American child refugees

Odd thing is, if the Republicans hadn't cut birth control from foreign aid in the 80s, we wouldn't have this problem. I think each and every Republican should be forced to adopt one.

Re: “Venezuelan author living in exile in Pittsburgh publishes translated novel

It is really easy to judge someone when those experiences are far away from what you have lived, but only read about someone else's life.
Venezuela is a reality that very few people get to know very well. And its not only about the hate mails, books banning or anything. It's also about the violence, the hate in every Venezuelan's heart, the way we are being controlled, all of our media is owned by the government, the way that power has destroyed a "modern" society. That's what he has tried to show in his novels, that's what you should be aware of before criticizing.

I'm from Venezuela. I'm studying Journalism and I get very sentimental with what we are living.

Thank You Israel for your novels, they caught me.

Re: “Pittsburgh CLO's Ring of Fire

Bizarre useless nasty review dramatically at odds with actual performance. Why does this paper allow such trash to be published?

Re: “Lynn Cullen Live 07/23/14

In reference to Lynn's strange comment about "weapons of mass destruction flying over a stadium", I will point out that when the bellicose Kim Jong-un was conducting war games last spring, Barack Obama sent a pair of B2 stealth bombers over the peninsula, the same planes flown over the Super Bowl every year. Americans are rightfully proud to posses the most fearsome weapon every created, and it is the existence of weapons like the B2 that make it virtually impossible for Kim to ever consider any nuclear action. In short, thank God for the B2. But what is really sad about Lynn's reckless comment, is how it alienates moderate to conservative democrats. Please Lynn, think before you put daisy's down American Serviceman's rifle barrels, we don't need help like yours.

Re: “Trib sports writer Dejan Kovacevic leaves paper to start website

As a Pittsburgher born and bred, Dejan is about the only print journalist I've followed in recent months. His style is honest but fair and his sense of humor adds to his efforts. He doesn't take himself too seriously and is always willing to interact with his readers. Congratulations to Dejan and good luck! He is making a bold move and I believe it will pay off!
