Re: “The Cut-Up

I had a chance to meet mr. Hamilton on the trolley in Memphis Tennessee this past weekend. The interesting young man asked if he could can do a sketch of me and I said sure why not. In about 5 to 10 minutes he drew a sketch that actually look like me. So I decided to look him up on the internet and I was amazed to find how talented he really was. He was a joy to talk with and I love the sketch that he drew of me. D. Roberts 7/16

Re: “Old School vs New School 4 at Minglewood Hall

The event was great! The energy in the room was at an all time high. Great music and even better dancing! There were chairs but after the first battle 80% of the room had stood to their feet! I enjoyed battling as well. I was honered to battle an OG considering i was on Team New Skool. I will be going to the next one.

Re: “Old School vs New School 4 at Minglewood Hall

I have been watching Jaquency do his thing for a very long time now. I met him when he was about 14 or 15 years old at Crystal palace and at that time I was kicking it tough with Juicy J who was DJing Treadwell dances and I wanted Juicy to see him dance. I took Jaquency to every party, club or event that had music because me and alot of my friends love to watch him dance and battle other dancers. Watching these dancers do they thing on youtube is cool and all but it's nothing like being there watching it live so I encourage anyone who has not attended one of these events to please attend the next one and the ones after that because the moves these guys can do are amazing. Keep up the good work Jaquency...something major is about to happen homie. Much love to my long time friend Jaquency. DaSupplya out!!

Re: “The Cut-Up

I got to meet Luther when we were in Memphis for an overnight getaway in June. We were at a bar and he sat down next to me while he was waiting for some take-out food. He pulled out a sketch book and I started asking him about the drawings. He offered on for sale at $10, but since I only had a $20 I gave him that and walked away with an amazing sketch of Johnny Cash and friends. We had about a 30 minute conversation about his days in Little Rock (where we now live) teaching at Central High School and his other travels and experience. Very interesting, intelligent man - great memory of Beale Street!

Re: “The Cut-Up

I met Mr. Hampton on the trolley yesterday. I always treat everyone with respect no matter how they look. (It really pays off)! Anyway, he resembled some of the homeless ppl I encountered while downtown Memphis. As I walked on the bus we spoke and began to conversate. He asked my husband and I where we are from. He explained he had a friend from Montgomery Al. And his friend's funeral was today. He was an intelligent man. Later on he said, "I am famous. You can read about me in the History Book. "He proceeded to show his work in a little notebook he was carrying. I was very impressed. He is such a talented man. I'm so glad I met him. But even more than that, I'm so glad I treated him nicely. I have always instilled in my kids, "Treat the janitor the way you treat the CEO." And be careful you could be entertaining an Angel.

Re: “Liberace at Theatre Memphis

You *must* bring this show to Europe! Especially Poland, where Liberace's heritage is from.

Re: “Two Theater Companies team up on Laramie Projects.

I was there last night, opening night. There may have a total of nine people. This production deserves a decent audience..

Re: “Jim Bailey Signs The End of Healing

I'm halfway through the book This is an excellent novel with insightful information. I have experienced the health care industry from both sides. Once as a nurse and the other as a patient. This book does cover many pitfalls of the medical system. I would recommend this book for anyone who wants to know the truth about the drug industry, insurance companies and the greed involved from the elite big money makers in the health care system.

Re: “Roundhouse Revival at the Mid-South Coliseum

Does anyone really doubt that the city is not allowing people to go inside of the Coliseum during Roundhouse Revival because it helps take steam out of a redevelopment effort that includes preserving the original structure?
