Re: “Breaking down the weirdness of the Pittsburgh Bucket-List story

I think it was wrong for Sams to share it since, as you said, the author could probably be identified by her handwriting. That being said, I found the list a fascinating study in the way this girl and most kids today are torn between childhood and adulthood, as we all have been. However, they are exposed to so much more than we were when I was a kid (I'm 62). They feel like they have to be grown up at 17. The media bombards them with these images of "coolness" that they feel the must attain.
That's a shame. I don't judge the author, but I do hope for her sake that she sticks to the items like "Open a lemonade stand with Zoe" and "Stargaze." Stay safe dear girl... you're still a child. Please try to enjoy it.

Re: “Lawrenceville breaks ground on Pittsburgh’s first Community Land Trust

Bringing more White people into this neighborhood has been one of the best things for the city. More White hipsters and professionals make our communities stronger. Liberals don't really want to live around blacks and browns anyway. Tbh fam.

Re: “Lawrenceville breaks ground on Pittsburgh’s first Community Land Trust

Seven. Seven measly properties, with sadly 65 applications already - that will contribute to the escalating values of adjacent properties - likely more coveted by developers now - and the new owners cannot share in the increased value of their homes over the time they live there. No opportunity to build equity. Who among the developers and investors would find this an attractive deal? What parent would find this a good investment for their family's future? This does not address the issue of long time working class residents of the neighborhood being priced out, and the future of the neighborhood itself. It is simply a cover for the development corporation to continue promoting gentrification of the neighborhood.

Re: “WWE robbed fans at Money in the Bank and rubbed it in on Smackdown

I really want Carmella to win now. After that Promo she needs to get it back, it was perfect. I also want Ellsworth to get involved again, just not unclip it. I want Ellsworth involved because I REALLY want to to see a Becky vs. Ellsworth at Summer Slam! It would be so satisfying to see her Blexplex his ass all over the ring!

Re: “Three Days at the Nelsonville Music Festival

Eddie Dingle is right. My bean pods are full to bursting with legume fluids, and like Dingle said, there's so much juice to go around.

Hey Nan, you can just keep walking with Danny. In fact you can walk your slap ass right back to where you came from. You've overpopulated my senses with your BS.

Re: “Three Days at the Nelsonville Music Festival

Ween scares local reporter before they even hit the stage. Their music was judged as "terrible" from a distance. Followed by a totally chill mosh pit for Twin Peaks' "Wild rock." The complete obliviousness to the cross-over of these fanbases really makes the whole article IMO.

Re: “Three Days at the Nelsonville Music Festival

Well "Dr. Rock" (aka Bro), sorry that you can't be everywhere and hear everything that happens. This reviewer was privy to some nauseating comments hurled by guys like you who think about nothing except jockeying up to the stage at the expense of everyone else.
You didn't hear the comment? Fine. The reviewer did. Her voice is every bit as valid as yours.
You probably never even saw the group when it was 2 guys and a drum-machine. Stop fronting. Us real fans see the direction the fan-base has gone in the past decade, and it's pretty nauseating.

Re: “Three Days at the Nelsonville Music Festival

I want to know what sexist thing was said to the singer before ween went in. I know that's a flat out lie because she said what an honor it was to open for such an iconic group and she gave the ween fans a lot of love. We all cheered her on also. As for ween fans, or Bros as you called them, barreling to the front, people were coming out. There was a lot of smiles and laughing because it was a cluster fuck, but a fun one. You chose to see negativity. You chose to be a hater because you have hate in your soul and that's fine. But to shit on a whole fanbase? At least tell a story about all the beautiful ladies that were in the crowd getting down as well. This article was bias as hell and another reason I think people from the burgh suck. Because of one lame. See how that works?

Re: “Three Days at the Nelsonville Music Festival

No need to bash Ween for some fans you saw. It's obvious you didn't like them from the start, but as a reviewer, they were the headliners. I saw both Jenny Lewis and Ween and enjoyed them both. Ween is an incredible band and I apologize that some random people in Ween shirts said bad things around you.

Re: “Three Days at the Nelsonville Music Festival

Love how a festival headlined by Ween was reported on by the kind of person that Ween wants to piss off as much as possible. Her take on Ween had me dying of laughter

Re: “Three Days at the Nelsonville Music Festival

Wow, I've been to a ton of ween shows just this year and I've never heard anyone be sexist. Sounds like you don't know how to appreciate amazing music and probably shouldnt judge an entire performance based on a fan that you didnt like. You're supposed to be reviewing the music...

Re: “Three Days at the Nelsonville Music Festival

My first time attending NMF, and I wholeheartedly agree with the reviewer's observation about the contrast between mega-fests like Coachella and Bonnaroo (which I both attended 5 years in a row, last in 2010), and a small scale, non-profit, community-oriented fest like NMF. I am never going back to any of those mega-fests, but I was utterly charmed by the setting, and the laid-back and family-oriented vibe, and will consider going again next year. Thanks for the shout-out to Leggy!
