Re: “Readers Say The Darndest Things: Arts & Culture

to the chabon groupie on best local author:
He may know his way around a sentance but it takes a bit more than wordy rambling to craft a well written story worth reading. Try again. Le Guin could write circles around any of his work.

Re: “Best Converted Church

Actually, the building Marmot is in was never a church, but rather a non-demoninational chapel used for weddings and funerals called the Little Chapel of the Flowers.

Re: “Best Pâté

Best pate? Birds raised for pate are kept in small, crowded pens to limit movement. A metal nozzle attached to a pressurized hose forcefully and repeatedly injects cornmeal mush down the birds' throat. This enlarges the birds' livers to 6-8 times the normal size. The process continues until the birds are so damaged and then die a painful death. Wolfgang Puck one of the biggest producers of pate gave up making it a couple of years ago because of the cruelty. Still think there is such a thing as the "best pate. No such thing.

Re: “Best African Restaurant: Taming the devilish spices

I have yet to try the restaurant so I cannot say yea or nay. However I can say nay to the naming of the title, "taming the devilish spices". Why is the paper associating the devil with something of Africa? Regardless of one's religious leaning or lack of things associated with the devil tend to be negative. Whether written by staffer or reader I expect more from Eastbay Express.

Re: “Best Sports Astrologer

Andrea is a great Astrologer. She uses intuition, insight and skill to help shed light on what is really going on beyond what we may see. She has helped me with some major decisions in my life. Her compassion and wisdom combined with her sharp astrology tools have been extremely beneficial to me. I recommend her to anyone striving for right action in their life. She knows her sports, too. It's all about cause and effect, is it not?

Re: “Best Martial Arts Studio

Yay! I've been training at this dojo for almost 10 years, and can attest to what a great place it is. I don't think I would have lasted this long anywhere else!

Re: “Best Alternative Religious Event

correction correction; no one "started" ecstatic dance. I've been doing it in one form or another, in groups, for all my life (I'm in my 40's) and it had been going on long before me. Your big island friends may have done much to popularize it in it's current form (and that's great!), but they certainly did not start it. Ecstatic dance is alive and well where I am in Portland OR, and I meet people from all over the country who do it where they are, too!

Re: “Best Alternative Religious Event

This authorless article did not check the facts. Mathew Fox has nothing to do with Ecstatic Dance. Also, it is not Christian (which is implied by calling it non-denominational) or religious in any way. Spiritual, physical, musical, social, not religious.

Re: “Best Brazilian Dance Teacher

I am soooooo happy that someone has articulated the true gift that we have in her presence. Axe:)
