Re: “Documentary 1948: Creation and Catastrophe Explores the Roots of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

throrough, detailed, clear...definitely a scholarly work, much moreso than history channel type of stuff, and it really tackles the topic of palestinian displacement over this time period with an honestly id never come across. with the amount of content and documentation they included, what they didnt have time for must be huge. given the time the events happened (1947-1949), this film and this project is likely the last time anyone can collect all the testimony and data into one place, the last time somehting like this could be done.

Re: “Report: New Zoo Lot Would Take an Acre of Greensward

hey DATGUY, i dont have a direct answer, but i havenan andwer. other may have a more direct answer. the greensward is used whether or not the zoo lot is full. the problem isnt overflow parkin--theres a massive parking surplus, and tiger lane alone could park the entire zoo. its just money, which thenzoo has in abundance ifnit wants to expand or
build an exhibit. the zoo just doesnt want to pay for a deck or a parking garage. they dont want to run a shuttle service.

Re: “Council Passes Final Greensward Agreement

this is a huge fuck you to the city of memphis from the zoo and its city council buddies and whoever pulls their strings. i sure hope im wrong, but this is a tactic to kill a movement. indefinite continuation (2019 gimme break theres already a massive parking surplus) of the status quo is not a victory.

if the opposition to the zoos annexation of the greensward lays down its a huge victory for the zoo.

this agreement is also a violation of the sunshine law.

Re: “Midtown Nursery To Fight Food Truck Plan

food trucks...park em wherever. leave the nursery there. the people here like it and they want it to stay here. the food trucks are for visitors to the neighborhood, and they can visit the food trucks in another visible location that doesnt screw/invoncenience/against the interests of the people who live here.

Re: “Memphis Makes Top 10 Least Hipster-Friendly Cities List

what live music venue was lost to lack of support? the hi-tone was the busiest its ever been. once a year this place gets overrun by hipsters, but, that's bearable to me.

this city is not white enough to be so hipster. but, damn, its cheap, and they could sure as shit move here and live very comfortably. stay in portland, asheville, austin, williamsburg, bushwick, etc. please. in fact, follow that L-train. fine with me. though we do have our solid hipster pockets here, memphis has too much real personality for this place to go hipster mecca.

at the same time, damn, this place could use a functional vegan restaurant, vegetarian restaurant, etc. we have the record store that, to some exetent, dictates hipster music taste globally. if you build a wagon and people all over the wold wanna hop on, well, shit, you BUILT something, so kudos out the yin-yang to goner.
