This is why we fail. 8000 comments dissing on local politicians and media personalities, not one comment to support the "Arts" we're all supposedly in favor of. Please allow me:

Congratulations to these individuals for gaining a forum and a larger canvas on which to display their works. I've been to a few showings at the Cherry & Webb building to support a friend who's a painter and it was a blast. There was a jazz quartet and people were drinking wine and Maker's Mark and having intelligent discussions. Not drinking Bud and screaming profanities at the "Wicked Pissa" fucking Patriots game on the Big Screen TV, bro!

Do yourselves a favor, go check this out. Get some culture, you might even like it. Then you'll have a perspective on what a shame the Durfee St debacle was and continues to be....

Yeah, New Bedford gets cool stuff like because the UMass kids all live there 'cause it's cheaper and the only reason they come to Fall River is to buy weed. They get culture, we get idiots like Anon 22:19...

Oh yeah, you can't buy weed in New Bedford or ON CAMPUS at UMass...What "cool stuff" does N.B. have...same unemployment, same layoffs, same 50 clowns at "art events" downtown as Fall River.

50 people is more than show up at most city council or school committee meetings. I think that's a decent showing. As far as what cool stuff I'm talking about, I guess you've never been to the BBC Building downtown or the neighborhood surrounding. A lot better looking than South Main St's imaginary 'Restaurant Row'! And they're bars have live music and open mic nights, not "DJ Manny Ferreira" or the fucking Sox, dude bro guy! Now you're just being ignorant and argumentative for the sake of it. I'm done with you...

P.S.- and they come to here to buy weed because we got the good shit! I guess we got that going for us, too bad we can't capitalize on that- Fall River: the Amsterdam of the SouthCoast! N-word please!
