Re: “Known Sexual Assaulter Woody Allen Has Made Yet Another Movie, and It's Not Great

Anyone successful in entertainment is part of the pedophilia organization called the illuminati. They sacrifice babies and assault children. Then they make movies and then we review them like they are normal people.

Re: “Charlottesville Killer James Alex Fields Now Faces First-Degree Murder Charge

Reports and video of her mother says she was killed by a heart attack on the scene. This was likely induced by the trauma of the car attack.

Antifa rallies are targeted by their own organizers in an attempt to spark political unrest. Everyone is sick of Antifa and the alt left. Can we please move on.

Re: “Charlottesville Killer James Alex Fields Now Faces First-Degree Murder Charge

Good move, but knowing why the judge took the action would be helpful.

Re: “An Argument Against Luxury Seating at the Movies

When did the Scene turn into Cleveland Magazine, or worse yet, Ohio Magazine?
It hasn't. Cleveland targets the 1% in the suburbs, and Ohio is a travel guide. SCENE is neither.

As the weekly front-page "feature"'s a snoozer and a space-filler. ZZZZZZZZZ.

Entitled, boomer complaint ? What the FLOOD are you babbling about? Newsflash and a heads-up to Bloomdog...if you're sixty, you're a fucking Boomer, fer chrissakes. Wake the fuck up...Boomers cover the birth years of 1946 to 1964. Do the math...that includes 1957. that includes YOU, buddy boy.

Another heads-up...SCENE is no longer being written and edited by those "Neanderthals"...slightly younger than you and slightly older and even your own age...whom you are pissing and moaning about.

For a LONG time now, this outfit has been comprised of Gen Xers (if we're really, really lucky), but mostly those goddamned Millenials with their shiny Northwestern J-school degrees. Who the hell do you think is attached to the asses in those stupid recliner seats? Do YOU still go to movies the way you did in your youth and young adulthood? I sure as hell don't anymore...and I'm even older than you are.

Tickets cost too much, Hollywood's product mostly sucks, people act like a-holes in theaters, their devices are annoying, and the previews are torture for the eyes and the ears. So I stay the hell home. I go maybe four or five times a year. This silly piece is aimed at the folks who are Sam's age. I mean hell, if he went to Harry Potter with his MOM, and was in college then, he's certainly no geezer Boomer. Use your head, bro.

Scene Magazine folks have a LONG time until they need to R-E-T-I-R-E ...they are probably somewhere around 35, tops. And if you have to use the same old same old to kick some ass, the same old tired cliches about growing waistlines and Depends and walkers and canes, you've already lost the hang it up, PLEASE!

Privileged little bitches? Now you're finally making some sense. That's who reserves recliner seats. BUT... saying GROW UP and "learn how to use a Smartphone" in the same sentence...that makes NO sense. NONE. Pass that pipe over to me, Dawg...

This geezer Boomer has been reading this rag since I moved here in 'the Nineties...when it wasn't a short four dozen pages and covered decent bands and news and politics and didn't focus on foodies and chefs and restaurants and ten-dollar craft brewskis. And it wasn't targeting the hipsters and the yupsters and the kids who moved here because Cleveland got cool in the magazines and was cheaper and less competitive and less stressful than elsewhere...don't need to list which Elsewheres. THAT is who the readership is, and THAT is the target of this piece.

But cheer the rate SCENE is shrinking (because the kids no longer read print media, and advertisers have migrated to social media), you soon won't have SCENE to kick around anymore. And you'll miss it. So will I.

Re: “Known Sexual Assaulter Woody Allen Has Made Yet Another Movie, and It's Not Great

So we are not supposed to judge people guilty based on one allegation against them? Despite what you write, the allegations against Mr. Allen are definitely suspect.

Before assuming guilt, maybe you should read the report from the doctors at the Yale-New Haven hospital who examined Dylan Farrow for six months and concluded she had not been abused; or read interviews with her brother Moses, who states that their mother poisoned them against their father and that he never abused Dylan. Yes, I know, you can counter that with people close to them who DO believe Dylan's story. The point being, if people this close to the case can't agree on what actually happened, there's no way in the world for you to know. As a supposed journalist, it's bad form to pretend to know what you cannot know.

The only thing any of us know for certain is that Dylan is a victim; but whether she is a victim of abuse by her father, or the victim of mental abuse by a mother who planted this story in her head, none of us can ever know. Pretending you have the answers doesn't help anyone. And, if you always assume guilt in cases like this, you'll end up condemning guilty people along with the innocent. Maybe you can live with that. Personally, I would not be able to.

Re: “NBA Awards 2021 All-Star Game to ... Indianapolis, Local Officials "Hopeful" for Future

I was raised in Indianapolis and lived in Cleveland for a couple of years. Being that the cities are in close proximity Cleveland should take notes on what Mayor Bart Peterson started in the early 2000's with plans to upgrade and polish up Indianapolis to not just get a All Star Game but a Super Bowl. Indianapolis is the 1 ranking convention city. Cleveland needs to do better, stop pouting and enact some change.

Re: “NBA Awards 2021 All-Star Game to ... Indianapolis, Local Officials "Hopeful" for Future

The interest of a few (hundred?) activist/crackpots does not compare to the tens of thousands who attend events and understood the value and need to renovate the arena.

From what Ive read in Scene there seems to be a were against it attitude toward any and all downtown development projects that dont involve strip clubs.

Maybe you should expand your survey group beyond a few hundred activist

Re: “NOACA Announces Multi-million Dollar Funding for Dedicated Bike Projects in Ohio City, Downtown

Lois Moss penned this in November 2017:

"Walk+Roll Cleveland was officially the first Ciclovia / Open Streets event in the United States. I had vaguely heard of similar events in Bogata, Columbia from Ryan McKenzie who was another Cleveland visionary. There were a few other US cities who closed some streets occasionally but Walk+Roll Cleveland was the first to add activities and community events during the street closing. Cleveland was at least a year ahead of NYC's Summer Streets program, 2 years ahead of Portland's Sunday Parkways program, 3 years ahead of San Francisco's Sunday Streets program, etc. We did Walk+Roll Cleveland in 4 neighborhoods plus also in Lakewood which was wildly successful but wasn't given funding by the powers-that-be. After 5 years of trying to get funders and bigwigs in NE Ohio to support the program, I gave up and moved to Portland. "

Lois Moss tried to promote cycling as a lifestyle in Cleveland and was rebuffed and dismissed. This happens here, too much (especially, to women). We have an existing bike infrastructure. It needs to be promoted more. Think of the Cultural Gardens and Ohio and Erie Towpath.

Destination Cleveland has asked Clevelanders to be ambassadors to their own city.

"We've created a new destination brand because its time to change the narrative about Cleveland at home and outside the city, " said Gilbert.
"Right now, Cleveland is enjoying a renaissance along with the benefits of billions of dollars in new development and improvements. Destination Cleveland's mission is to promote the city to visitors, and while we can organize the efforts behind this movement and amplify the message, we cant tell the story alone."

We have libraries and businesses like McDonalds that could serve as visitor centers. Bike tourism is a real economy. The Industrial Heartland Trail Coalition (IHTC) has built a Trail Town network in Maryland, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Cleveland's participants in this program never even mention the IHTC.

This latest round of NOACA funding will not advance Northeast Ohio as a tourist and weekend destination. In 2015, I covered the Bike Cleveland annual meeting at the Sachsenheim on Denison Ave for REALNEO. I posted an excerpt from a Wall Street Journal article about the appeal of Amsterdam. This could and should describe Cleveland:

"Weekend activities are highly season-dependent. Spring and summer offer weather mild enough to pursue lengthy bike rides, up to 60 miles or so, as well as visits to parks, markets, open-air concerts and fairs. The diminished daylight and lower temperatures in winter are mostly conducive to indoor activities, museum and library visits. An annual admission card costing about 50 (about $58) provides access to the majority of museums and other cultural venues."

The Midway project and Lorain bike lanes are streetscape projects, not bike network projects. Transportation dollars can be directed to more efficient bike network connections in Northeast Ohio. One that is a no-brainer would be to connect the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo with the Cuyahoga Valley National Park and the Ohio and Erie Canal Towpath.

Developer Radhika Reddy of Ariel Ventures has capacity to build a hotel and not, as proposed by City of Cleveland, permanent supportive housing by CHN-Eden on the bluff of the Big Creek Valley overlooking downtown and all points north, south, east and west.

Cleveland hosts two major international events (maybe more) in 2018. The Front International and the USA Triathon. We desperately need to get our act together before then.

Re: “On the Appallingly Low Percentage of Black Chefs in Local Kitchens

Let me submit these names of chefs:
Keith Bowen, Eric Wells, Geoff C. Thomas, Eric Rogers, Jae Smith (who was in CLE), Stacey Stoudemire, Quisha Marbury...and I'm just getting warmed up! These are black chefs who are either running kitchens in Cleveland (some of them in multiple locations) or they're doing catering and private chef work. The people are out here working, maybe just not on your particular path as of yet.

Re: “On the Appallingly Low Percentage of Black Chefs in Local Kitchens

Bon Appetit or Compass group hires quite a few black chefs who run large accounts across the Cleveland area. But unless you have a restaurant that pumps out the same fried chicken and waffles you won't hear about them.

Re: “An Argument Against Luxury Seating at the Movies

My complaint with theater lounge seating is more about ergonomics...because I am reclined my head rests on the headrest and is not straight up and down. If I look straight forward, I'm looking more at the ceiling than at the screen. I can either look down my nose to see the screen (complicated by the fact that I wear glasses), or I can hold my head up to have a normal viewing angle.
It's also harder to eat my giant tub of popcorn in a reclined posture.
The recliners are comfortable, but I just don't think they're specifically suited to movie viewing. Perhaps with modifications specifically for theaters - adjustable headrests that could keep my head at a more conducive viewing angle, for example - they would be more suitable.
