image-1Jason: Where Atlanta struggles with soccer is professionally. The youth game here is huge. It’s one of the biggest cities in the country with youth soccer participation. It's taking that next step to support a professional team. There’s been a number of teams over the years that have come and gone for a ton of different reasons. Hopefully Arthur Blank is going to pull the... | more...

image-1Chris: It's hard not to feel optimistic after graduating college. The experiences that we came up with, this generation growing up, we have a sense of purpose. Whether it was September 11th or the economy and all these kinds of things by the time we were 22, we had a lot of these things on our plate that we processed and acclimated to and included into our experience. I don't know what... | more...

image-1Sam: Hot dogs are good. Better buns at the Top Dog Express. Those dogs are perfect because they're a foot long and you can really dress them up. If you get a regular dog, it's a gamble because the buns fall apart and you have to put more effort in keeping that dog in there. We buy peanuts from the sweet lady under the bridge coming down here. I get a $3 peanuts bag every time. Same bag... | more...

image-1Damon: She's solely responsible for music in my life. From the earliest I can remember, she was getting me into percussions. She was constantly motivating me, constantly singing. I came out bobbing my head. They were concerned I may have had some mental defect. I constantly bumped my head in my sleep as a baby. She would hand me cooking spoons and I would get pitches and sounds out of... | more...

image-1Greg, Greenville, R.I.: Atlanta is definitely one of my best shows every year. It's right up there with Pittsburgh and Boston. It's just a very enthusiastic crowd, very educated crowd and they like crazy funky weird art, too, which is perfect for me. People are really nice, polite and good natured. You don't get that in Boston. They're grouchy. Hopefully, I'll be coming back in the... | more...

I have a screaming child, but I still resent other people's screaming children. You're just going to get trampled by these kids with popsicles stained lips and sticky cheeto fingers and their fat sweating parents. Way too... | more...

image-1Lashundra: It's all about Hollywood. When I put them on, I feel glamorous. Functionality doesn't matter. It's attitude. I see some people and think "Oh my God those sunglasses are horrible," but if you feel beautiful in them it doesn't matter. It's all personality. When I put them on, really, I feel Hollywood. I feel like a celeb, like Beyonce, walking down with the stilettos on feeling... | more...

I've been watching Atlanta hockey since the early '70s when the Atlanta Flames were here.  I just keep coming, show my support regardless, no questions asked.  I am frustrated over the ownership, and Don... | more...

image-1Jayne: Definitely the dog whisperers or the people who watch too much Cesar Millan and think that they are little Cesar Millans. I hate them. I own dogs. I love dogs. These people think that they understand everything about their dog. It's very pretentious and it never works. They have no idea what they're doing. Their dogs aren't bad. The dogs aren't misbehaving but I'd rather them... | more...

Matt:  If there's a clear and concise reason other than just assembly data for the Illuminati, I don't know what the purpose of it is. Ultimately, it's bullshit. They have your social security number, driver's license, credit cards, they can track you for whatever they want. It's redundant. I never understood the purpose of the census, so I say fuck it. How can the census people...

A little sorority girl getting punched. And not the most attractive women in the SEC.  I remember them all wearing bikini tops to the games like that was normal, a 70-year old woman too. Florida has great teams--they... | more...

Maccabus: We're not going by the moon like we're  suppose to. If we did, we wouldn't have these times being thrown off. We really need to get back with the moon instead of the sun. That's how our creator wanted it to be. I really prefer we get back to the original things like going by the moon. The Catholic Church, Constantine brought that into play and if we can just get back to...

image-1Alain: Vegan popcorn at the Plaza. Popcorn by definition is vegan, but the toppings are vegan too.  At Camp Creek it's probably not certified vegan and probably fake butter too.  You do feel a bit more special at the Plaza that you're eating vegan. You're not hurting an animal in any way. Makes it taste a little better. They also have nutritional yeast to put on your popcorn and a little... | more...

I like talkin' about music and instrumentation and drugs and guitars. Weather is boring. You're not going to do anything about it. When I go outside to walk my dog or go to work, that's the only time I investigate on what's going on. Weather... | more...

It wasn't that at all before the Olympics. I never thought anything about Atlanta before except that my father worked here in the '70s and the first day he was in Atlanta he got robbed at gunpoint. That was the only story I ever knew about... | more...

We have a dog named Dipstick and the other named Dale Earnhardt Jr. We have a very simple relationship. We care for the dogs and love each other. For romance, we have beer. We like to eat all that food that's tattooed on my arm. That's my menu, what's on my arm.... | more...

When the Falcons are losing there's nobody there. Falcon fans don't know who they are.  What they need to do is come on to New Orleans and put a black and gold jersey on. We're from New Orleans.

Steve: First you have to believe in yourself, and then you just become one. It all starts from the inside and heads out. Small pants, big world, baby, look out. What's great about Atlanta is that the gigs don't pay for shit, but the rent is cheap and Atlanta has a lot of pretty girls that inspire great songs. Sit-ups and pull-ups are involved. No one wants to see a fat rock star....

In Georgia, they're not looking to change or improve but rather to settle and deal. One example the Vermont legislators are doing is legalizing marijuana. To Georgia, marijuana is a drug, not a plant. Georgia is so rock where Vermont... | more...

wearing them in winter is disgusting. And straw fedoras in the winter

and miniskirts with no tights. It's not OK. Their legs are freezing.

We're in the South so we think it's not very winter, but it is. Some

girls are more focused on looking cute than being warm. They wear

It's more vandalism than tagging. They're just trying to leave their mark without benefiting anyone. Not only do they do it on the known graffiti walls, they do it on the side of coffee shops.

Rap became all about bitches and hoes. In the 1930s, you had Robert Johnson, Charlie Patton.  All kings of the Delta blues. Music with meaning and soul to it.

They were coming in and having two beers. This year more like four or five. Businesswise we seem to be... | more...

It's a bunch of words thrown together. It's so bad it stands out. My mom liked it, which made me dislike it more. Au Revoir Simone, Still Night, Still Light, is the best.  It's all girls.

He built that Dome. I'd like to see Vick beat the Falcons to show the organization he's still got what it takes. You got players that did a lot worse, shot women, and you're going to value a dog's life... | more...
