Re: “All Buttholes Considered: The Imagine Cafe Story in Tweets

This was just a twitter survey. I think the sub-pooping happened on Facebook.

You forgot to mention the commenter who claims said naked baby actually pooped on restaurant floor a few weeks prior.

Re: “Letter to My City

All lives are devalued when some lives don't matter. How can we understand this about blighted properties, but not understand it about blighted lives?

Re: “Old Whitten Tavern: Ankle Tattoos & Cheap Drinks

Randi: the reporter forgot to mention the pizza; albeit it's a cracker crust, only the best ingredients are used and they taste delisciius.

Re: “The Big S: A Very Memphis Bar

Going to the Big S and not having the barbecue marks you as a chump. Seriously, what's wrong with you?

Re: “Old Whitten Tavern: Ankle Tattoos & Cheap Drinks

The food, the staff and the regulars will keep you coming back. It really is a melting pot type of bar. No attitudes, no problems and always a good time. Try the PIZZA and Hot wont be disappointed.

Old Whitten is a great place for all different walks of life. I love everything I have ever eaten there, cleanliness is a priority and service exceptional. I am so glad other people are noticing this fine gem.

Re: “Baby Driver

Mainly, I'm just making sure I've got our new log-in process for comments down, but, as is so often the case, I find your reviews to be the go-to ones on just about every movie that comes down the pike. Where else can a reader get this kind of background? You da man.

Re: “Karl Dean in Memphis Next Week

As stated, prominently in the second paragraph, LWC. But, upon further inspection, I can see why you added your note. My original language was not as precise as it is now (or as I remembered writing). I added a word or two, for (ahem) clarity's sake.

If I can find the old pics I will try to post some if it's allowed here.

Re: “Joseph Culligan: "The Iron Man of Memphis"

Hi Darryl, I am just checking my post at the Memphis Magazine blog after a long while. Yes I knew Jim. He and Hershel Robertson (painter at Culligans) had a small welding shop on Poplar Ave near downtown in the 1970's and 1980's. I can't remember the last time I saw him. The last I heard from my dad is that he was very ill and did himself in the 1990's if I remember right. I'm sorry I don't remember more. If I can answer any more questions let me know.

Re: “Joseph Culligan: "The Iron Man of Memphis"

To Dave: I don't remember a lot about him because I was so young. I do remember he had a big white Cadillac parked in the garage and a big collie named Beulah.

Re: “A Compromised Greensward “Solution”

Thanks for the effort. While you say the extra spaces allow room for design improvement, your proposal leaves so leaves so much to be desired and ignores so many of the best practices necessary in creating such facilities that it runs the risk of muddying the waters with impractical or outright impossible design elements.

A few of the more obvious critiques:
Your design appears to focus almost entirely upon vehicles and pays minimal attention to what happens after a visitor exits their car. The design appears to almost completely ignore the need for internal vehicular circulation. God forbid the row you select is full because the next point at which you may have access to a parallel row could result in a mile drive (adding to vehicle emissions) or it appears you would be forced to exit the lot entirely and make the attempt again via the North Parkway entrance. Hopefully your plan includes a high degree of real-time automated wayfinding signage to direct drivers to available spaces.

The plan does little to improve upon existing pedestrian circulation as parents with children and strollers in tow will still be forced to walk as far as 300 feet (equivalent to a full block downtown) in the drive aisles to reach the nearest pedestrian cross-route in order to pass between cars. This would create a similar dangerous and congestion causing situation and distance as found in the existing main parking lot in front of the zoo.

The plan depicts a 100% hardscape parking lot leaving no space for the vast amount of stormwater such a lot would generateor worse yet, forcing the use of the Greensward as storage for said stormwater.

The plan also allows for zero landscape or buffering creating a parking lot that would be similar in character to the vast spartan parking lot to the south of and adjacent to Union Avenue (across from UT) except that at around 14 acres, your parking lot would be something like 3.5 times larger than that particular asphalt desert.

In effect, while it is great that people from all sorts of backgrounds and experience are thinking about this, there is very little the plan handsomely accomplishes. I can only hope that the selected firm is able to far exceed the plan shown in every possible way. I refer you to the study created last year for the Conservancy which demonstrated not only knowledge of parking demand and background traffic information, but the method by which over 460 parking spaces could be created without the need to pave so much as one additional square foot anywhere within Overton Park including the Zoo.

Re: “Karl Dean in Memphis Next Week

Just to clarify, Dean is there to help raise money for the Tennessee Voter Project and not his own campaign, correct

Re: “Warrants Issued Weeks After Man's Suicide at Murphy's

Show went well. Alyssa was there. She even got behind the soundboard for a bit. We showered the room with yellow rose petals. I'd like to believe it was a beautiful attempt to heal and reclaim one of the last spaces left in Memphis for live original local music. I imagine there are still 7 people who will somehow find a way to dislike and be offended by this regardless.

If you weren't there, I can't expect you to understand.
