Re: “Mailer daemon

You do realize that Islam=Muslim, don't you? What you just said is that Islam is at war with itself, which makes as little sense as the junk links you posted.

Re: “Mailer daemon

Islam is at war with Muslims and non-Muslims all over the world.

World-wide terrorism attacks increased from about 1800/year in 2000, to about 4200 in 2011. But from 2011 to 2014, the attacks spiked to nearly a whopping 14,000. You can glean from this remarkable statistic ( http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-33… ) that something significant is going on here. But the last place you can find out exactly exactly what is in any newspaper.

It's next to impossible for the average person to understand the big picture from our first source of information gathering, the news media. That has always been the case, except now our main sources of media are hyper vigilant NOT to report U.S. vulnerability to Islamic terrorism. News can take days before an expert somewhere in the information chain will admit that a beheading here or an explosion there was actually a terrorist attack. In addition, all follow up information is equally veiled.

During WW II, there was zero immigration into the U.S. from Japan, Germany or Italy. The Japanese were interned in large numbers, as were the less well known interment of German and Italian settlers in the U.S.
Is it strategically wise to allow near unfettered movement of people in and out of your country from countries at war with us?
WW II is the last war the United States won.

I have found it unproductive to get into a 'he said,' 'she said' spitting match. What I have found useful is ferreting out experts that have devoted years of their professional lives to understand what is going on. But the internet helps.

Just a reminder, Hillary Clinton's Iraq vote was "yes" with major conditions which were not met by President Bush. She did vote for that war, along with many others, war but is not to blame for it. http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_pol…

Re: “Earning an encore

I was in the balcony for RA on Saturday night and Lake Street Dive on Tuesday night. It may have been the same crowd. Both drunk, both horrible, and more interested in hearing themselves than the any of the four acts. I can't say if they were worse for the opening acts of Gregory Alan Isakov or Amanda Shires because both are more quiet and contemplative acts but the noise level was cacophonous! In my 45 years of concert going, starting in 1972 with Led Zeppelin and ending with Lake Street Dive, I've not been in a ruder crowd. It seemed to me that a great many there had no real interest in hearing good music. I'll not be going to see acts at the Wilma again, nor do I think Ryan Adams will be back there. Thanks for being so classy Missoula...

Re: “Shots fired

Helen should verify her "facts" (excerpt):
"In other words, Kennesaw residents were required to own guns ... save for those Kennesaw residents who couldn't afford guns, couldn't use guns, couldn't legally own guns, or simply didn't want to have guns. Essentially, Kennesaw residents were never actually required to own guns, making most assertions about mandatory gun ownership and crime rates in that town highly problematic."

Re: “Earning an encore

I can't comment on the Missoula show as I wasn't there, but I will say this. I saw RA years ago (1997?) in Boston at the Avalon. He didn't have much "showmanship" but he kept his head down and sang his heart out and it was a great show. Fast forward to 2015 in Portland Me where he threatened the audience several times about using flash photog due to a condition he has. He made ridiculous comments about how he's never been to Las Vegas and such, seemingly trying to strip any heartfelt meaning from his old music. Then berated people for calling out "old" songs which he refused to play. I understand artists want to showcase their recent work and can get tired of playing the same songs over and over however, I can tell you my 25 year old babysitter has not a clue who he is and he might want to appreciate the "old" fans he has before he goes extinct. I won't even comment on the Taylor Swift stunt. I think I'm not hipster enough to see the irony. Anyway, when I lived in Missoula in 1992-94, pearl Jam came through. I've seen them give amazing performances aside from this. Vedder held the show up for over an hour to finish watching basketball. Then came out drunk and obnoxious and was spitting on the audience and insulting people. Maybe Missoula just brings it out in people.

Re: “Earning an encore

"Infamously, when someone shouted for "Summer of '69" at one of his concerts in Nashville in 2002, Adams stopped the show, unleashed a stream of profanity and refused to play until the man was escorted from the auditorium."

Infamously, lazy music writers (can't call you a journalist, that implies things like accuracy) across the USA love telling this story without knowing a damn thing about it. The real story is all over the Internet and has been known for years, so this is beyond laziness.

Let me try to sum it up..... He was playing an acoustic show at the Grand Old Opry/Ryman Auditorium and a very, very drunk person stood up in front and started yelling things for seven songs. After putting up with it for a half hour and security doing nothing, Adams gave the dude $40 (his cost of admission) and told him to go home. The "music writer" (again, not a journalist) who reported on this hated Adams and took advantage of the situation to get attention to his own career.

Re: “Back on the trail

Carol, you're mistaken on this as you are with a great many other issues. It's no wonder that the few people who do recognize your name roll their eyes when they hear or see it.

Most Montanans support fox's lawsuit against the feds, and most Montanans don't give a hoot what happens in deer lodge. If you think these issues will propel Tennessee lawyer Larry Jent into office, you live in a small bubble.

Jent is a lamb of the sacrificial sort. Even democrats know that.

Re: “Back on the trail

I've watched Senator Larry Jent at the legislature for many years. He is effective and well respected. Even Republicans listen to his views. On the otherhand, A.G. Fox has bowed to the anal-retentives of the Republican Party in joining the "Bathroom" controversy when there are other important issues like finding space for the Licence Bureau in Deerlodge. These are two big mistakes that will send Mr. Fox back to private practice.

Also Dan Brooks, you should check out Ryan's Live at Carnegie Hall. It's a 6 LP set of 216 minutes of Ryan playing. Not a single asshole in audience.

Re: “Earning an encore

Bullshit article/"review". Although I wasn't at this show (a good friend was) I was at the Red Rocks show a few nights later. Here's something to think about... At Red Rocks - which holds 9,500 people (over 9000 were at the show). Despite allowed tailgating, selling beer and hard liquor in the venue, and marijuana being legal, there were no issues. Ryan went on to play 29 songs (even a do-over) up until curfew.

This isn't to say or imply that Coloradans are better behaved than Montanans. What it does say is that there was a disrespectful crowd in Missoula. People in Montana should really think about this versus blaming the artist. Here's why... As many of you in Montana know, it really is a treat when a popular artist decides to come play in your state. Let's face it, Montana is far away from just about everything. It costs an artist a lot money and time to make stops in places like Montana. From a financial and time perspective (not to mention small venues), they don't make a lot of money. The come to places like Missoula because they want to. Ryan can sell out Carnegie Hall in 10 minutes if he announced a show there tomorrow. So, when someone good comes to your state, be appreciative, not an asshole.

On Ryan's past behavior... Has Ryan been an asshole many years ago? As a die-hard fan I can't argue that. He has flipped out. But when was the last time that happened? I have been to many Ryan shows, and one in particular I remember him stopping the show and berating someone in the front row for continually talking. This went on for a good 5-7 minutes, but I have to say she deserved it. He continued playing after that and overall a great show. Were there those in the crowd in Missoula trying to bait him (sounds like it).

So I don't blame Ryan for taking the attitude of "We drove all the way to the middle of f'ng nowhere, making next to nothing doing it, out of the graciousness of our hearts to play for you, and you treat me like an asshole. OK, no encore."

I'm willing to bet Ryan never comes to your town again, Missoula. Nice job.
