nashville culture: Nashville Weather: Cross Between Humid Subtropical & What's Going On?! - 01/30/13 06:36 AM
I've lived in Tennessee ongoing since 1996 and in Nashville since 2007. The weather here is nothing short of bi-polar. Or, as I call it, a cross between humid subtropical and what's going on?! One moment things are moving along quite nicely and the next, you're scrambling to adapt to harsh environmental changes raging outside the window. The intensity only seems to be increasing year-after-year.
For example, yesterday marked day one of our 2013 tornado season. The craziness came through just after the stroke of midnight, and we had watches lasting till 4 am in some areas; one person was fatally … (2 comments)

nashville culture: New Year's Eve Recap: 2013 Music Note Drop - 01/02/13 06:50 AM
We're a city that loves to party, especially if fireworks and music are involved. Combining these together, Nashville has created an entertainment legacy for two primary holidays, both occurring at opposite seasons. One is the 4th of July. And one is  December 31st:
"Rainy weather didn’t appear to deter New Year’s Eve revelers Tuesday night, with an estimated 50,000 people turning out for Nashville’s outdoor 'Bash on Broadway'. The event featured more than five hours of live music, a fireworks show and a 15-foot-tall music note timed to drop at the stroke of midnight.
Last year, when 55,000 people turned out, the … (0 comments)

nashville culture: Nashville Entertainment: Schermerhorn Symphony Center - 10/03/12 06:58 AM
If you're striding beyond the Music Walk of Fame and head towards the Pedestrian Bridge to see the Downtown skyline, you most likely notice a beautiful, bold and stout building stands in the way. This center opened its doors September 9, 2006, and was dedicated in honor of Kenneth Schermerhorn, Nashville Symphony's conductor and music director from 1983 till his death in 2005. Formally designed like the home of the New York Philharmonic, the crazy difference is OUR SEATS MOVE...

Here are some of the highlights of what the Schermerhorn has to offer for you:

nashville culture: Neighborhood Compatibility Questionnaire - 10/02/12 08:06 AM
In the adapting world of real estate, many often forget the crucial impact cultural studies plays on the industry's success. We've been dominately impacted, over and over again, by the market's "negative numbers" for the last decade that realtors and the people alike are asking for something different. We want more fun, excitement, and what is most fitting to help with recovery and sustain its survival.
It's the very questions we've been pondering since our company's inception: How do we reach out again? How do we add some spice where the traditional recipe has grown dull? How do we bring the LOVE? We began to pull statistical information from previous voting polls, list what specific … (0 comments)

nashville culture: ABC's "Nashville" vs the Real Nashville - 09/26/12 07:38 AM
ABC's new TV show "Nashville", set to air Wednesday, October 10th, is already accumulating national buzz. However, for a cultural analyst who's been a resident in the real Nashville, Tennessee for a good, long while, I'm virtually torn. The Excited Me jumps through the roof at the opportunity that a cable powerhouse would be interested in "honoring" our smaller, Southern city by dedicating an entire series in our name! This is FREE PUBLICITY on how much fun, competitve and eccentric we can be. Behold, the preview...

The Nervous Me, however, worries. Since I've had the privilege to work, eat, play and attend a university … (2 comments)
