    I give props to BoMA for booking major international talent when no one else will put up the money; but why does is always have to be Pop/EDM duche bags?

    Why not do a night with King Britt, Marques Wyatt, and Uneaq? It would be such an eclectic show; you could probably get attendance from all over Ohio/Kentucky/Indiana/Pennsylvania. You could probably get the three of them for a combined price comperable to PVD or Tiesto.

    I am dying to go to a “big show” but they always gotta bring in the European Uber-DJs… it drives me crazy.

    Congrats Kamal! Year after year I return to the Refectory because Kamal and his team know what’s important in a restaurant…customers.
    I wish Kamal many more years of success.

    What is also important in a restaurant is food safety. While they might have a great reputation over there (and deservedly so), I know the chefs there don’t take the food safety thing very seriously. They have been having some problems with their inspections lately.

    ***I already made the post and did’t want to take it back, but realized maybe this wasn’t the best thread to bring this up. I’m sorry, and congratulations is well deserved.***

    I used to drink K Cider, but I think they may have gone out of business because I haven’t been able to find it in a year or two. It was very good.

    I usually just go to Anderson’s and pick out whatever I haven’t tried previously.

    It’s already been mentioned, but I get dough from Trader Joes and it’s quite good.

    Sooo many people are going to tell you to go to Kooma, but the service is usually SLOW and they tend not to be the cleanest place. Since I am eating my fish raw… it needs to be clean.

    I have had excellent sushi at many different places, but I think the single best, freshest fish I have had was at Kobe on the north side of Morse Road directly across from Easton Mall.

    My wife was formerly their Health Inspector and I know first hand that their kitchen is always imaculate and they go to great lengths to get the absolute best fish available.

    Hama @ Easton is good, Haiku is hit or miss.

    Interesting … how’s the food there? I’ve never spent much time in Bexley; may have to check this out.

    Not to split hairs, but movies like The Big Lebowski, Snatch, Lock Stock, etc are very well known. They’re either blockbusters or cult classics.

    I’d add boondock to that also… if they sell it on a t-shirt at hot topic… it’s pretty much for sure “well known”

    I see where you’re coming from, but I still run into people who’ve not heard of them.

    I’ve never seen Boondock Saints on a t-shirt … probably because I have never been inside a Hot Topic. OK, whether it qualifies or not, still a great “action” movie that incorporates a lot of good humor.

    There was no way I was going to read all the posts, but has anyone mentioned Boondock Saints?

    Do you expect a national championship every single year? Unrealistic.

    No, but I expect to be competitive and win a “big game” at least occasionally. We have lost nearly every big game for the last 4 years.

    This is starting to sound like yelling at the 3.8 GPA, honors, class president, concert violinist high school kid whose grades drop a 3.0 or 2.8 when they take AP and college courses.

    Except this is OSU and we expect to be in contention for national championchips. If you can’t get it done, you gotta go.

    His play calling at the end of the 1st half for both the Navy game and the USC game was horendous. It almost cost us the Navy game and may have outright cost us the USC game.

    I was doing yard work in San Antonio, TX with the radio on. Heard them talking about a single plane hitting one of the towers and my mind started considering the fact that it could be terrorism. (I had some familiarity with global terrorism from my time in the Air Force.) Moments later the second plane hit and there was no question about it.

    It was strange those few moments between the first and second plane where the people on the radio were talking as if it could actaully be some kind of catastrophic accident.

    My wife was still active duty Air Force at the time and she called me, informing me that most of the military personel had been immediately sent home because there was so much widespread speculation about possible other targets and they wanted to clear the base of all “non-essential” personel.’

    It seems like a life time ago.

    It’s all good trust me, it was just a playful jab on my part. I honestly wish the next generation all the best. It’s just that today’s renegade electronic events are, sadly, mere shadows of the ones from days of yore. I wish todays crowd would try to create something new, fresh & fun, instead of bastardizing the 90’s rave scene. There was Woodstock, disco, early hip-hop, rave era…. now it’s time to move on and create something new, quit living in the past.

    Now that, I can agree with completely.

    Real raves kicked the bucket about 10 years ago. Thinking that there’s still a rave scene is like thinking disco was still alive in 1990.

    I don’t think anyone is envissioning a “real rave”. Just something with electronic music that isn’t being forced to exist in a high priced club full of douchebags.

    Like all things within popular culture, and rave is no different, things ebb & flow. They die and are re-invented. Maybe in the course of the next few years there is room for the growth of a “new rave” scene. Yeah, it won’t be like the one we all attended back in the 90’s, but it shouldn’t be … it would have a new audience now and fit their likes and atmosphere. I know attendance at the big national electronic festivals has been up recently. DEMF, for instance, had it’s biggest attendance in quite some time this past year. Maybe that is a sign of a new up-swing in electronic music.

    I say, more power to them. Invent something new that “your generation” can get behind and don’t let the old guard hate on it just because it isn’t the way it was when they were doing it… and if you want some old-ass DJ like myself to come out and play some music for ya … I’d be happy to.

    ***Jack, this isn’t a direct slam on you. My thoughts started with your post, but then began wandering into other things that were somewhat related. My mind meanders and loses it’s way sometimes.***

    If you are going to all the trouble of trying to organize an “underground” party/event, you should do it the old-school way.

    One stage, multiple genres. This is what actually brought people together in the old days. What I loved about the old school scene was going to a party and hearing House, Techno, Jungle (DnB if you prefer), Trance, Gabber, Goa or whatever all from a single stage. You just have to ensure that each DJ is of highest quality you have access to or you are gonna lose your audience.

    The “new” way of doing it where each genre gets it’s own room or area only works to isolate people and feed the era of “genre nazis”.

    If someone is going to be brave enough to try to put something together here in C-bus… give me a holla. I’ll help if I can, and will gladly provide some House music if asked. Although, I think you might find it hard to secure all your permits and keep the authorities off your back.
