Re: “Making it: Actors work to earn a living on the Central Coast

Thanks for this great story! I was raised on going to PCPA performances and feel fortunate to have such a unique experience as the Melodrama right in our "back yard". I've recently re-discovered SLO Rep and am amazed at the consistent quality of the productions!! My daughter and I recently went to see Lost in Yonkers and it was outstanding! No need to go to "the big city" for quality theater - we've got plenty here in SLO! It was so nice to get a glimpse of the lives of some of those people who work so hard to bring us great theater here on the Central Coast!

Re: “Hidden oasis: A quick getaway can be found at the tranquility of Montaña de Oro State Park

Karen, I hate to spoil your fun, but Montana de Oro is a State Park. The reason it felt like a gold mine for rock collecting while you were there is that all features are protected - rocks, creatures, shells, plants, etc. - for the benefit of the ecosystem and all visitors and inhabitants. Please return the rocks you took, and do not encourage others to remove anything from a State Park. Yes, enjoy visiting, hiking, taking photos, and touching the rocks. But please leave them where you find them before you go home! Thanks!

Re: “Arroyo Grande artist Mark Bryan satirizes Trump presidency

I would happily hang both these up right in my living room; I had to listen to eight years of moaning, screaming, and tantrums from the right as Obama and the left tried and successfully rebuilt this country from the conservative caused crash. They can handle a few unflattering paintings of their orange Mussolini.

Do you have digital prints for sale?

Re: “Local artists support Measure G

Add a beautiful piece of art to your home, what better way to make-a-donation to the "YES on G" effort.

The Collection: Artists from San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties have donated their stunning art in support of the SLO effort to pass Measure G. The collection started while seeking donations for a silent auction. San Luis Obispo landscape painter Marcia Burtt offered to not only donate her art, but to reach out to her contemporary artists and friends and ask for their involvement.

In a matter of weeks, the collection has grown to over fourteen artists and over fifty unique works. Donated works include originals from several artists and signed giclee prints from those who typically wont sell their work as prints, making these giclee prints a rare and unique opportunity.

Re: “Arroyo Grande artist Mark Bryan satirizes Trump presidency

Ok, anti Trump sentiment is pretty meaningless and milquetoast, especially here on the well padded self centered coast. However I do like how in the first image how he equates communism with capitalism. I totally agree with that comparison and it's rare to see that kind of deeper analysis from your basic pro establishment boomer tier artwork. Kudos to the artist on that one.

Re: “Indie folk singer-songwriter Gregory Alan Isakov brings his intimate songs to the Fremont Theater on Oct.13

So, why would Julia Bayless support the Republican cause if she is truly against the abuse of women? It is not true the there are a number of women who accuse the Preseident of sexual assault?

Re: “Arroyo Grande artist Mark Bryan satirizes Trump presidency

I like Trump. He has done a lot for the middle class. Cut taxes, repatriated money of large corporations, lowered unemployment, renegotiated treaties in our favor, and if Q is to believed is cleaning up corruption in Washington. I was a Democrat for 40 years till they tilted way to the left and started using infantile, hate filled and divisive rhetoric about everything. With 700 'elite' padding the Democratic party vote, have fun getting your say. Just ask Bernie voters how they feel.

Cunningham supports trophy hunting. He will never have my vote.

Re: “'Fahrenheit 11/9' is an entertaining albeit jumbled attack on President Trump

Trump is dog shit & there's no need to be "fair" when exposing & attacking him. Today's republican party is a nihilistic cult more than a political movement, so there is no reason for any filmmaker or pundit to give "both sides" a fair hearing. There are no normal two sides now,. There is a very flawed but civilized liberalism on one hand while on the other is a demonic cult dedicated to radical evil , the destruction of the country & all human decency.

Re: “SLO photographers capture Italy's Carnevale

Love Peggy's work, these photos are simply stunning and reflect a part of Venice I had heard about but know very little about. It inspired me to look on line to find out a bit more. Thank you for sharing your passion Peggy, it's been wonderful following your creative passion.

Re: “Bingeable: Twin Peaks: The Return, 2017

"The best-case scenario is that it will direct them back to the original series, which still remains a far superior show."

You reckon, Chris? I didn't grow up with the original series, so it goes without saying I didn't watch it in the proper context that it required. But my idea of Lynch at the peak of his powers is Lost Highway, his relentlessly nasty and acid scud missile from 1997. Not 1990-era Twin Peaks.

I found the first two seasons to be pretty lightweight and spineless. I enjoyed the warmth and some of the quirks, but the relentless cornball cheesiness and hokey cherry-pie folksiness became very grating very quickly. Comfort food only satisfies for so long before you want to start throwing chillies into the mix.

I say give us something new, radical, and transcendent. Each to their own, of course, but I don't watch Lynch for cosiness or familiarity. I watch Lynch because I want to come away from the experience with my head floating 6 feet above my body (like the charred ghost in the jail cell).
