Re: “Labor Unrest at Columbia College, Northeastern

As an adjunct professor at Columbia College Chicago, and as a student before that, I can say without hesitation that Dr. Warrick Carter, President of the College and earner of a $300K+/year salary, is the worst thing to ever happen to the institution, and plenty of faculty and staff agree with me.

He even cuts in line with car valets in the parking garage next to the school. His sense of entitlement and gross opportunism knows no bounds.

Re: “Through Paying Dues

That being said, it's fun reading their answers to these questions while talking like a sub-literate Truman Capote.

Re: “Through Paying Dues

Eagerly awaiting when these guys move away to Brooklyn and give the inevitable Thax Douglas-style "Chicago sucks because they didn't luv me enough" interview. It's building, ever-so-slowly. For my money, they've been little more than Chicago's "garage rock" answer to Billy Corgan...a bunch of simpering whining poseurs who make boring derivative music and give bitchy self-involved interviews.

Re: “It's Time to Make a Clean Break With Ronny's

"Until you've put on all ages punk shows regularly anywhere, but especially in this city, your opinion just doesn't matter, because you don't have the slightest clue what you're talking about..."

Great argument, buddy. It's like saying only bus drivers can point out that the CTA's notso hotso sometimes.

Anyway. As someone else pointed out on here: Nobody cares about your "credentials." Now go run along and do one of your little "Bud Light Presents: Local H" concerts at your 21+ rock and roll club.

God help us all when they go through their Radiohead phase.

Re: “It's Time to Make a Clean Break With Ronny's

@Patk12345: We're all terribly impressed by your resume (Wow! You owned a 21+ rock club?! Did you serve Paul McCartney wings and Heavy Metal French Fries?!), but you must've been drunker than shit at 4:25 in the AM to maintain that the only opinions that matter here are those who regularly put on all-ages shows. Lay off the red headed slut shots next time you decide to rant on here like a dumb dick.
