Thanks for this. I graduated a few years ago, so it’s nice to hear about all these bands. Also: did Common Grounds shut down? The vast majority of shows I went to were there when I was in school. Sad if it’s not there any more.

Wrong. Neon Bible was obviously their weakest record.

That boy IS my son (in a metaphysical, Tree of Life sort of way).

So, the mere mention of Karl Marx’s name makes you a communist? Got it.

Part of the problem is that some of those people at the extreme end are already on TV every day. The problem is that they’re on channels like CNBC and are given insta-credibility, even when they chose to deride the OWS people and pander to corporate interests.

All of his films have really valid points and are generally done really well. He just needs to learn how to rest his case before he injects himself into the narrative.

I think Moore envisions the “Golden Age of Capitalism” as being the mid-20th Century, when the economy was in a boom, regulations and taxes were high, and organized labor was powerful. This meant that there was plenty of work to go around, labor and corporations were at a more level playing field, the middle class was actually growing as a result of making comfortable wages, and regulations/taxes were such that the robber barons of the past weren’t as prominent, meaning there wasn’t as vast a chasm in wealth between the middle class and the rich. That was a pretty good time for America! (Unless, of course, you were black, hispanic, gay, or a woman, but let’s forget that for now!)

That’s a long-winded way of saying that Michael Moore needs to figure out how to stay out of his own way when conveying a really legitimate message.

I always thought “vertical smile” as a phrase only existed between me and my college fraternity brothers. Because whenever I said it to anyone else, they were very confused and very offended.

Also, yikes!

Pretty sure no. Grandparents wouldn’t have standing to sue for wrongful death. Ironically, Casey would be the only one able to sue for wrongful death. Granted, I’m only kind of a lawyer (taking the FL bar this month), so I could very well be totally wrong.
