TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! TALKING THE 'PHANTOMS OF KC' AND STREETCAR HISTORY WITH BRIAN NOLAND AND KEMET COLEMAN!!!



Tonight, let's offer just a bit of equal time and take a look at a downtown development from a cultural perspective that appreciates Kansas City history.

To wit . . .

RECENTLY, WE TALKED TO BRIAN NOLAND AND KEMET COLEMAN ABOUT THE 'PHANTOMS OF KC' PROJECT WHICH HOPES TO CREATE A COMMUNITY CONVERSATION ABOUT THE UPCOMING STREETCAR!!!

This is a pro-streetcar event but we like how the organizers are approaching it . . .

Brian Noland is currently a UMKC Law School student who is also a well-known consultant and campaigner in Kansas City's political scene.

Here's his description of the event that's kind of a social gathering crossed with a history lesson and incorporating a bit of multi-media.

"The only agenda we have is to elevate the level of conversation," Mr. Noland said. "We want to reach out to people who care about Kansas City transit and provide a place where we can share ideas."



We know Kemet Coleman from his local hip-hop career and performances with the Phantastics but he's participating in this project to strengthen his already impressive level of local civic activism.

"We want to come together with everyone to craft a narrative about where this city is going and where we've been," Mr. Coleman said. "I think at the end of the day we want to see the city succeed. This forum and talk is about creating pride and learning the story of where this city comes from . . ."



This is the second event for this Kansas City duo. The first meet-up hosted a crowd of local A-listers, politicos and even a few hotties . . . This latest outing looks to feature an even more enthusiastic crowd given all of the debate surrounding Phase II of the project.

Here's the online pitch for the upcoming event with all of the deets . . .

Please join us on Friday, February 28th at The Rieger Hotel for a special celebration of Kansas City's Street Car, past and present! Celebrant-Speaker Vince Gauthier--a Harvard man--and former KC Port Authority Director will lead this party.

It was a tough call between Prof. Gauthier and Clay Chastain, but in the end, we chose Vince!

Tickets for this Phantoms of KC special are $10.00. This cost covers light o'deurves and entertainment (a harpist and a jazz band!). In addition, we ask that each of you sign an initiative petition, available at the party, supporting Early Voting in Missouri!

That middle logo is sweet.

And I guess it's sad that KJ won't be there since he moved to LA.

Both these guys will be long gone if and when the right opportunity comes along. Leaving their peers here in KC to pay off a massive boondoggle they'll carry on their shoulders for a lifetime.

So they are going to be shilling for eighteenth century transportation technology to lead CK into the future?

Will Staubio and Johnson be there doing the toy train boogaloo together on the dance floor?

That Guy said...

LOL! Now that would be news.

Why don't they just promote it for what it is that giant sucking sound of taxpayer dollars vanishing into thin air?

Stop Phase II said...

Opportunists maybe but they're also the Mayor's favorites. I don't know if that means they're powerful but what I think it does mean is that the Mayor is desperate if he's counting on the youth vote for the street car. Watch Brookside reject this new sales tax. Kansas city is overpriced already.

So is this Kemet guy supposed to be KC's version of Pharrell?

Vince G never did shit when he headed up the Port Authority , now he's a paid pimp for BNIM and the Streetcar Fail! Please bring on someone who isn't bought and paid for, like maybe, a TAXPAYER!!!

Vince is only doing a 15 minute presentation. Everyone will be drunk and stoned by the time he does his song and dance routine and won't remember anything the next morning anyway.

The reason Flint Lock doesn't use his real name is because he's a registered sex offender. His mother/sister caught him having sex with his sister/aunt & in a jealous rage his father/brother called the police.

Just like Obama - never worked in a for-profit business -- ever. Never met a payroll or hired anyone. Where do these morons come from and why does TCK even post their drivel on this here respectable Hispanic blog?

So I take it then that this Kemet fellow IS supposed to be KC's very own version of Pharrell?

TKC showing his stripes with this pathetic posting of the POSERS POSSE.

"a community conversation about the upcoming streetcar!!!!"

"elevate the level of conversation" and "provide a place where we can share ideas"....BN
Let's all climb into the sandbox and hug!

"craft a narrative about where the city is going and where we've been" and "creating pride and learning the story"....KC
Let's all drink the Toy Train kool-aid and get taken for a ride.

"Brain" Noland = Treasurer for Crispin Rea's ill-fated City Council run, and fellow UMKC law school student. "We're gonna take over this city!"

"Clown" Coleman = operating on the theory that if you hang around a bunch of different people, smile big, slap backs, and schmooze a lot.....eventually you'll worm your way into the good graces of someone who has influence.

Late night humor from TKC!!!!

No toy train.

TKC = Community Of Haters said...

You guys really don't really like anything. I'm glad most of you live in the burbs where everything is making you miserable and you eat most of your meals at a chain store. Good luck people. We're living in a real city.

1051, you are clearly out of touch and on the outskirts. Stay there, you will never have any influence.

've seen several copies of Flint Locks's alleged apology. What a bunch of bullshit. Its not an apology, its an insult. That's what I see, who knows what he thinks it really is.

He talked about killing me, I talked about beating him up. He called me a school bus follower, I called him a registered sex offender. The 'meltdown' only happened in the imagination of those who would have enjoyed that. I think that everyone understood that what I was saying was sarcasm. Some people clearly thought that what he was saying was true.

Blogger.com can not ban people. Blogger.com can not track IP's.
Sometimes Tony & I exchange emails, but not lately, not last night or today.

If one was cynical, they might frame the context of this event as such:

Bob Berkebile conspires with Cleaver and steals the Bancroft School project from another developer, and subsequently earns untold fees from the foundation of a disinterested millionaire actor that funds the renovation of the project.

Berkebile then co-chairs terminal renovation advisory committee, but totally fucks up at guiding public opinion to support this porcine project, pissing off the project's supporters (the CoC and their pol's).

So to make amends, he sends his employee to speak as a so-call subject matter expert at a forum held by lackey's of his patrons, in an attempt to redirect discussion and shore up support for another pet project that is receiving significant and growing resistance from the public- the toy train.

Ah yes, if one were a cynic....

ATTENTION: 10:06, 10:20, 10:24, 11:25, 11:26, 11:28 comments

We note the consecutive nature of your closely timed comments, and surmise that probably one person is behind all of these (is that you Kemet, the Dapper Doofus?)

When people call you out for your ridiculous BS behavior, you simply reinforce their image of you by responding with petty sophomoric complaints! Anyone who has witnessed your silly amateurish video efforts or jester-like prancings about in public cannot be blamed for rewarding you with negative comments.

7:28. Cynical indeed.

Everyone currently touting the street car is making money off the City. Mayor Sly is pushing the streetcar idea with no consideration of its real feasibility or need. This is a boondoggle folks, plain and simple.

I can't afford the train. My margins are getting smaller and smaller. My business is on the train route. My business involves trucks. We already have problems with cars and buses. How in the world can we add a train in there? Looking a little crowded here already. This isn't disney world where we can put a monorail above ground. This isn't vegas where they can do this kind of thing either.

Public transportation only works if it is safe. Just what we need, a new terror threat in Kansas city.
