Re: “Mad Max: Fury Road

With respect - compassion has been the key to Max's character through all of the films; evidently, you haven't seen them. "The Road Warrior" was Max at his most desolate and learning to live again after encountering the community protecting the tanker - and remembering hope - and EVERY woman in "The Road Warrior" was a bad-ass; Miller was being a feminist in 1981. And "Thunderdome" was FILLED with strong women - from Tina Turner to the female leader of the lost children - and Max sacrificed himself so they could escape - sacrifice and tenderness coursed through the veins of the entire trilogy. Learning to love and connect again has been the entire theme of the series; "Fury Road" is PRECISELY "your father's 'Mad Max'" - and that is why it's so wonderful. I would advise actually knowing something about the series of films you're talking about - or at least to see them - before publishing your reviews of them.

Re: “I Want to Pee on My Girlfriend

After being in relationship with him for 3 years,he broke up with me,
I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted
him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with
everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to
someone online and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell
caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type
that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the
spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be
okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he
cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex
called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that
he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return
to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was
how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made
promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem or child
problem I would be of
help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful
spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from
all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell
caster, his email is dromoselspellcaster@gmail.com you can email him if you
need
his assistance in your relationship or anything. he we be ready to help you.
self regard Sofia.

Re: “George St. Gelais

George st.gelais was my daddypa. We spent many years together snow mobiling and tending the lawn and gardens. He love me, protected me from abuse from maurice brace. Talked with me of the flowers that grew around his property.
for years he worked at the cheese plant in hinesburg. I still remeber the smell when he came home.
he taught me so much and with seven children he was blessed as a great grandpa loving called great pea pa by all my kids.
he saw and did so much in his life. The world lost a precious soul.
I love you daddypa and we had a very special relationship. Forever you will remain in my heart.

Re: “Soundbites: Kyle Gagnon Gets Weird

Hi Egmatic. Thanks for commenting.

While Soundbites is technically a music column, I do consider it an appropriate outlet for comedy coverage as well. Though labeled "Music," a primary focus of the section is what's happening in area nightclubs — you'll notice the listings surrounding the column are labeled "Clubs." More than ever, that includes comedy.

I strongly disagree that comedy in Burlington is a fad. I think the standing-room-only crowd at the GMCF's opening showcase last night (on a Wednesday, no less) would, too. I would urge you to venture out to one of the GMCF shows this weekend — Kyle's in particular. I think you'd be surprised at just how funny these folks are. They're talented artists who work hard and deserve recognition.

Also, I did write a mini-Soundbites for the blog that deals exclusively with music: http://www.sevendaysvt.com/LiveCulture/arc…

Re: “Soundbites: Kyle Gagnon Gets Weird

YO, I like me some WHITESNAKE, but you don't hear me complaining about how Dan Bollles didn't even talk about their new album yet. You want to CHANNEL some of that IMPOTENT RAGE into Triceps of steel? Hit me up for your RAGERCISE needs. Otherwise I say CAN IT, you can't stop this comedy train that's already left the station. People been ROCKIN it with DRUMS and LAUGHIN at People TElling jokes since we was hunter gatherers sitting around the FIRE.

KYLE is gonna slay it like Kerry King at Red Rocks.

Re: “My Girlfriend Has Slept With 40 Guys

Sex is a very personal thing and knowing that your happy to open your legs or put your thingi in that many people says a lot about your character; you're easy, risk of cheating and STD is high, you don't value yourself as a person. And even if you're in a relationship with this person, they may not value the relationship as much as you. If you break up they will just move on, because it's easy for them to find another partner.

I am not saying it is wrong to sleep with that many people and I am sure you will learn a lot along the way. But it saddens the person you end up with and scares them too; reason why so many people back away away.

Re: “Taxi Trials: Are Burlington's Standards Lower Than Uber's?

"Chris Handy, who helps his dad run Blazer, said of the complaints: "The funny thing is, not one of these are about the driver that I fired." He said he recently terminated an employee for repeatedly making inappropriate comments to passengers. The driver told one fare that the glove compartment was "full of condoms." He asked another, a 14-year-old girl, which Red Sox player she'd like to sleep with. Last Handy heard, some other taxi company had hired the man."

Funny how there are all of the problems that the airport says blazer cab has and they also admit to having a sexual predator that was just recently fired. Sounds like a business that should not be in business, then again it is a Handy operation so we should expect nothing else.

Re: “Planning Session for Housing on Green Space Frustrates Some

Just because one doesn't get their way doesn't mean a process is flawed. Recognize and respect that there is a time consuming and expensive process underway here that is not required. Try to participate in a productive manner so that opinions may be heard and considered, while realizing that we don't always get to dictate how someone else uses their land under applicable laws.

Re: “Sanders to Launch Campaign at Burlington's Waterfront Park

Bernard Sanders: Bought, Paid for, Owned and Operated by the NRA. How many more people have to die from senseless gun violence before Sanders will agree that dangerous and instable people don't have a right to maintain an arsenal of weapons that no one in their right mind would ever use for hunting anything other than people?

So glad to see Silver Lake included! But to clarify, Cloudland Farm and Sugarbush Farm are in Pomfret, not Woodstock. ;)

Re: “Scoreboard: Winners and Losers of the 2015 Legislative Session

PAUL HEINTZ, “You know nothing, Paul Heintz”. One of the biggest Losers in this session of the Vermont Legislature is barely mention in your “Puff” piece, The Vermont Press from local media outlets, VTDigger, 7-days and the Major Papers like the Burlington Free Press and Rutland Herald/Barre Times-Argus under reported or slanted their reporting away from some of the scandalous actions of the legislature. Little was reported Sen. Campbell’s creation of a sinecure for himself until it was over. The influence peddling of over 90 legislators for campaign funds from an out of state billionaire through his funded organization “GunSense VT” and “Everytown Vermont.” The Vermont Press portrayed Ann Braden as a great “Volunteer” organizer and did not investigate or report on her and her organization’s finances until after the fight was over. You attack with glee the horrific crimes of Sen. McCallister but say little or nothing about the corrupting influence of “Big” money om Vermont lawmakers. Shame on you, Shame on all of you.

I am glad I came across this article! I just recently purchase a 1967, 7th edition copy of this book at my local thrift store, in Syracuse, New York!! I love reading through the recipes and can not wait to try some!

Re: “Toensing Files New Complaint Against Sorrell

Is it true that Toensing's mommy and daddy worked for both Reagan and Barry Goldwater? If so, it is a pretty good guess that these allegations are not coming from someone with no axe to grind against Democrats, but from one who is following the "smear enough excrement on the wall and some of it will stick" tactics the GOP is so famous for, going after one Democrat after the other (he's also gone after Peter Shumlin). I would guess that his family probably also knew Nixon, Agnew and many of the people involved in the 1972 dirty tricks campaign, because he seems to be well versed in smear.
