Things To Do This Weekend In Kent
However, there are two other venues that people seem to just blow off. Never underestimate or forget about EJ Thomas Hall, at the University of Akron, or your very own Kent State MAC Center. EJ Thomas Hall hosts musicals throughout the year, but they, too, have concerts.
Paul Simon will be making an appearance there, and soul singer Dwele will be performing in the hall in the spring. And honestly, there is no excuse not to go to a concert at the MAC Center at least once. I’m not saying you have to go see someone you absolutely hate or anything (I, for one, am not a country fan, and so I won’t be seeing Dierks Bentley November 3), but if it’s someone you don’t mind or at least aren’t repulsed by, you should scope it out. I mean, it’s right there, and the student ticket prices are always reasonable. $5 for Bruno Mars. Okay. Why not. There isn’t much else you can get for $5 right now, everyone. You may as well go to a concert.
The very worst thing that could happen would be someone giving them their ‘Saul Alinsky Moment.’ While the mass of the demonstrators are mere useful idiots, rest assured that the organizers are disciplined communists who would just love to provoke the situation where some of the useful idiots were injured or killed before the adoring cameras of the MSM. The communists have three Things working against them: Thankfully, we on the right have kept our crazies, and we do have them, in check and there has been no violence even in the face of provocation at Tea Party gatherings and no agressive counter-demonstrations at various lefty/union gatherings. Secondly, the only place the communists can get enough people and media attention are big Blue cities.
While individual cops might well want to thump the vermin, their unions support the vermin and the political leadership of these cities are all castrati, Democrats, or both, so it is very difficult to provoke a ‘police riot’ to bring back memories of Chicago in ’68. And, third, it is very difficult to ‘astroturf’ a violent encounter. After the police and the National Guard, the demonstrators’ bete noir in the ’60s was the so-called ‘hardhats.’ Back in the ’60s, most unions and their members were vociferously anti-communist and the counter-demonstators were often unionized construction workers. These days the only remaining union construction workers are working for Davis-Bacon wages with lots of overtime on various publicly funded and ‘stimulus’ projects. They are pretty much the only employed construction workers in the Country. The unions have trouble getting them to come out to demonstrate for anything and if they do, they’re on the same side as these protesters. My youngest son is a union apprentice who just got laid off as the construction season is ending and he’s been shanghaied several times to go down and march with the local ‘occupy’ group. The union made it clear that if he wanted work, his participation was not optional. So, the organizers are going to have to find some grad student types to pretend that they’re Tea Party counter-demonstrators to provoke a violent incident; tough duty.
KJ: The musical traditions are being fostered obviously through teaching these kids. Any tradition is going to be passed on from one generation to another. The reason why I think its important you hear teachers or politicians say if you dont know your history youre doomed to repeat it There is some truth in there, but theres some lies in there as well.
On one hand history does repeat itself, but the reason why it doesnt repeat itself is because there are people who are constantly trying to strive to do Things a little bit differently and a little bit better. And the beautiful part about jazz history is theres always been musicians like Miles Davis, John Coltrane, or Duke Ellington and even musicians that musicians dont really identify with that have always tried to bring something new or something different, or something old even, to whats going on and its just through understanding and self-awareness that a musician can actually be able to make a contribution to what it is that hes trying to do.
Nice addition to This class. With two top tight ends, Muschamp is building his roster (bigger tight ends, receivers and running backs). Dan Mullen could’ve built off of the existing roster (at least on offense), but Muschamp’s style of football means a transition.
It’ll be interesting to see how he does once his roster fits what he wants to do.
I have a running list of dreamy, far-out, Christo-like, crazy, fun, creative ideas that someday I will probably create. For now, I’m able to park the big wacky ones, but usually it’s the medium-sized, somewhat do-able ideas that really get to me. The real problem with these fun creative ideas isn’t in their inception, nor when the final product is on display.
No, those are the sweet times, when it’s all clear and rewarding and perfect. No, it’s all the time between the birth and completion of the idea. It’s in that time when I have to wrestle internally and say Things to myself like,’what exactly AM I doing, anyway.’ It’s then when I recite my favorite crazy-creative-artist quote from William Falkner ‘ ‘an artist is a creature chased by demons, he knows not why they chase him, and he’s usually too busy to wonder why.’ And then I simply keep moving forward.
As long as you always supervise your children when they are around the cats, it can be a good experience for them. Just remember that small children can seriously hurt a pet like a kitten. They can step on them, sit on them, pull their tails out of their sockets, hit them, any number of Things.
People who don’t care about walkability and transit will be indifferent to living in these apartments, but those who want walkability and transit will preferentially choose them. For a really successful example, see the neighborhoods around the DC Metro, and Reston Town Center which is not on the metro yet but is ‘rail-ready’. Once these Things reach a critical mass, they grow, and that encourages other suburbs to plant more of them.
Burien, Renton, and Kent are all building town centers, and I hear Des Moines and Federal Way want to too. Look at the difference between how these cities are now vs how they were in 2000 or 1990. There could be a lot more TOD by 2021 and 2031.
Wisconsin and Oklahoma had bad weekends last week. Wisconsin ran off to a 14-point lead only to see Michigan State rally to tie the game and then on the final play of the game Wisconsin lost on a freakish Hail Mary pass. The ball bounced off the facemask of a State player in the endzone into the hands of another receiver at the 1-yardline who leaned into the end zone with no time on the clock.
The officials missed the call originally saying that he had not made it over the line but replay clearly showed that he did and the call was reversed. It could not have been a pleasant trip back to Madison for the Badgers.
