Well, as you put it yourself in this thread, D. H. Commando, the negative minded people gravitate here in greater numbers than the positive, creative thinkers:I haven't checked in lately on the Columbus Georgia Topix but not surprised to see Will's much ballyhooed "music scene" lagging so far behind in his poll.
So, the fact that nearly 2000 voters have voted Yes in support of our vastly talented Columbus GA-Phenix City AL music & art scene is a good sign, that a significant number go against the mob mentality and applaud the under appreciated singers, singwriters, performers and musicians of our local area.I would agree that when Will uses Topix to "share" his or his friends music or musical event he is setting himself up for ridicule. Maybe not because the quality of the musicians but because Topix is not really the place for that, most people get on here to complain about whatever and to attack that which they hate.
I could start a post about some new movie I watched and liked and 9 out of 10 would say they hated it and I'm a idiot for posting, that's just the way it is.
