Re: “Tale of Two Promoters: Joshua Bakaitus and Brett Shumaker

If there is an agency you have worked with that represents several bands, try to book all of their bands. Treat all the bands well and eventually, even if you don't have the best venue available, a big show will be dropped in your lap. I was given this advice years ago and I have seen it work time and time again. Keep up the good work!

Re: “Pittsburgh gamers say we’re living in a golden age of board games

I concur! Great article. Gaming is such a wonderful escape from everyday struggles or routines Board games are an introvert's happy hour . . . or four!

Re: “Critics of trigger warnings on college campuses often miss the point

Trigger warnings are for pussies. If you don't like the "media you are consuming" stop fucking consuming it.

Re: “College Guide

Great article! Its tough to attend college and make money to support your family. I have always been a advocate of using what i already have like a cellphone to make additional money. Selling cellphone pictures online is in high demand. Start your online photo career here:

Re: “Critics of trigger warnings on college campuses often miss the point

Thanks for writing this. I get very frustrated with those who equate trigger warnings with censorship. Trigger warnings allow people to make an informed decision about the media they're consuming.

Re: “College Guide

Congrats on the guide. Since most college students finance at least part of their education with loans, it's important to know the differences between various government and private loans. Here's a primer: https://www.credible.com/blog/must-borrow-college-start-subsidized-student-loans/

Re: “Honey-bee swarms are key to fighting population decline

ABSOLUTELY FALSE!! - Beekeepers lost nowhere near 33% of their colonies last year or any other year for that matter. Since 2006 when the misnomer CCD was trotted out - by an environmental "journalist" who didn't do their fact checking, the number of colonies in the US has soared from 2.1 million to 3.1 million in 2016. A 50% increase. For several years running, the 4 major metrics for the beekeeping / honey production / pollination industry have been on the rise. 1-number of colonies, 2-total pounds produced, 3-pounds per hive, 4-price per pound. The average losses for commercial beekeepers who operate 98% of the colonies in the US has averaged 8% - 12% every year for many decades.

Re: “Can you take roadkill home and eat it?

Not that I would eat roadkill, I'm just sayin. This seems like one of those unenforceable laws.

Re: “Can you take roadkill home and eat it?

it seems kind of ridiculous that you need to ask for a permit and wait 24 hours to eat roadkill. The meat won't be as fresh by then, and if you just took the meat off the road, who would even know? It's otherwise trash.

Re: “Summer Films

Going to the drive-in is an awesome summer activity. Pennsylvania still has 27 remaining drive-in theaters. You can locate them here http://www.driveinmovie.com/PA.htm.

Re: “They are the music makers: What (some) Pittsburgh musicians, promoters, labels and producers would like to see improve in the city’s scene

This article was written in complete ignorance of anything but the commercial side of music: basically pop, rock and hiphop. Not everyone has been commercially successful, natch, but they all wannabe. There are musicians in this city who care more about music than doing gigs and landing contracts. Do your homework.

Re: “They are the music makers: What (some) Pittsburgh musicians, promoters, labels and producers would like to see improve in the city’s scene

Interesting start to the conversation.
Keep the conversation alive. Talk to more people in the music scene. There is so much going on here all the time, and everyone not in the music scene I talk to has no idea.
"There's no good punk, metal, hip hop, hardcore, folk, rock, R&B, etc anymore" is something I hear constantly, and when I press them, they just haven't heard anything new since the 90s/80s/70s.
We need to break up the barriers that are keeping the conversation and ideas from carrying over into other micro music communities in pittsburgh.

The Wire Riots are incredibly underrated, as are The Long Knives.
