This was an entertaining read, Leah. I found myself really wanting to go see this film. Thanks for putting me in right inside the movie trailer. Well done. :)Tommy G
Despite my personal misgivings about the way things were done at The Empyrean, I am genuinely sad to see them close. Chrisy and Michelle are real troopers, even if I don´t agree with everything they´ve done or said. They gave lots of players (including me) an opportunity to play right in the middle of what little city culture exists. There will be even less now that they are gone. I wish them both the best as they venture into new endeavors.
It is nice to see that, if nothing else, you are consistent. Your magazine seeks to find any negative angle it can find for people doing good stuff. Why on earth come out and essentially set a tone that says, "Tech N9ne´s a loser because he plays Spokane too often"? Meanwhile, he sells out here every time. Are you trying to tell the people in Spokane that they´re stupid for wanting to come see this guy who plays here too often? This kind of crap is why I left the city to pursue music where there´s some culture for it. Jeers to you, The Inlander, once again. But you are certainly consistent.Tommy G
It is extremely gratifying to see so many positive comments in response to this really negative article. As one of the finalists, I feel obligated to bring everyone in attendance my best performance. I know my fellow brother and sister artists/competitors feel the same way. Best wishes to all the finalists. It´s gonna be a GREAT SHOW!Tommy G from the 509
Don´t thank them for essentially calling us hacks and wannabes, Jerry. That´s just demeaning, bro...On the other hand, I really look forward to seeing you perform. I know you are much more worthy than to be referred to as a wannabe.Good luck, sir! :)
Even though she said some back-handedly nice things about me, Jordy Byrd from The Inlander basically decided to slap every one of the performers who tried out for Spokane´s Got Talent 2010 Edition in the mouth. She basically says we all are pretenders and wannabes, then applauds our courage for showing up. Nice. Gotta love WANNABE critics... Thanks Jordy...you just gave me the fuel I need to kick some ass for all of us with the courage to try out... Thanks for the motivation... ´preciate it. It´s really too bad Ms. Byrd doesn´t get it. She left out some pretty important details too. There were 196 acts that "tried out" this year. Only 20 got selected. So...whatever shortage of talent that Ms. Byrd says she observed the night of Final Auditions won´t be there, to be sure. The Bing Crosby Theater is a gorgeous venue, and the show promises to be not only entertaining, but memorable. And I´m sorry she was soooo hot in the club. She should try the lights on the stage. That´s what I call HOT.I challenge all the TOP 20 FINALISTS to take this article personally. I have. CHEERS TO YOU, all those with the talent and drive to chase your dreams and MAKE THE SHOW on ability. Jeers to you, Jordy Byrd... for saying Spokane´s Got No Talent. See ya at the show, honey... :)Tommy Gantt
