Re: “The Awakening at Theatre South

Wish you'd dilate on that comment a bit, CD.

Re: “The Awakening at Theatre South

Liberty at an ultimate price that prefigures so much erotica.

Re: “The Awakening at Theatre South

I remember teaching that novel at Memphis State in the '70s. It engaged the students -- both male and female -- to an unusual degree. They literally cheered as we discussed sections depicting Edna Pontellier's personal liberation.

Re: “Condomonium at Playhouse on the Square

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there were 885 reported cases of syphilis in 45- to 64-year-olds in 2000; in 2010, there were more than 2,500. In 2000, there were 6,700 cases of chlamydia in this age group; the number ballooned to more than 19,000 by 2010.
The numbers of older people with HIV has nearly doubled, and 15 percent of new diagnoses of HIV in the U.S. were in people age 50 and older in 2005, which is the most recent year that the CDC calculated the risk for this age group.

Re: “Dennis Brooks Passes

For those who don't know me, my name is Paul Caesar. Son of Joe Caesar. My father and Dennis where best friends from childhood and on through life. The last time I saw Dennis I was around the age of five visiting my father and new step mother at my father and Dennis's apartment in downtown Memphis. I never really got to know him as well as I would have liked, but oh the stories I was blessed to here from my dad and uncles over the years. My father moved on from Memphis to become all that he is and achieve amazing things and often encourages me to get out of Memphis. As a matter of fact it has been sort of a battle within me wanting to follow my father's intuitions, but I love Memphis so much. It's like I am drawn here. I belong here. This place has such a soulful magic that I can't abandon or begin to explain. I often spend time down town walking around and just taking in the scenery and the soulful sound of our music in the distances as the smell of the world's best BBQ hits me from a distance. I get overcome and overwhelmed with such a genuine feeling of being be a true native of the very streets that my father and Dennis used to tear up and down in their youth. Man how my imagination just takes off on a journey. Knowing I'm standing on the same side walk or walking the same streets as they once did means the world to me. I have grown to share the same love for Memphis as Dennis once did and i often think of how priceless it would be if he where still here to help explain to my to my father why I just can't leave my awesome, magical, soulful, city. I feel like a true rock star every time I meet one of these old head Memphis music guys at a dive somewhere downtown and Dennis's name comes up. If only they knew the stories I've heard from my Dad and step mother about how cool Dennis was and how much fun trouble they used to get into. Perhaps I am being guided through these alleyways and cut streets by Dennis's spirit as I live laugh and love all that Memphis is. Thanks Dennis for all the awesome thoughts and stories. How I wish I could have ran into you at one of the many events you put together in my adult years and just been like hi sir I'm Paul Caesar nice to meet you. Man what an evening we would have had once you put two and two together. This next shot, slash toast is to you sir as I sit down town in a building, you guys probably used to know well. I hope that the good name I am coming to develop down here can be a testimony to the times you and my father once had..........

Re: “On the Phone with Bill Cunningham of the Box Tops

I met Bill during his sojourn in Germany in the early '70's. I was into the American music being played in Germany at the time, which was really fluff. I'd never heard of the Box Tops. It wasn't 'till I moved to Canada and being a little older that I realized who he was. Wow. I still feel somewhat foolish, 50 years later. He didn't make any impression on me musically when I knew him, I'd never heard him play, and let's face it, what did I know? Apparently not much The only time I figured "okay, he can play the guitar" is when he patiently taught my little brother some easy to learn songs on his guitar. Bill wasn't a person to brag, nor was he ever anything but a nice guy. Polite, caring and a real gentleman. He ended up marrying my best friend. (It really should have been me. Ahhh, the missed opportunities.) I would have married him in a flash, just because he was such a great guy.

Re: “Johnny Mathis at the Orpheum

I just saw my first JM concert recently, and he, at 79, was just as impressive as when I listened to his albums as a youngster. So, now, I am obsessed and listen to him every day. I also agree he should be recognized by the Kennedy Center, and did nominate him. I do believe it is long overdue.

Re: “Jingle Bell Rocks! at the Brooks

I downloaded and watched this on iTunes. I was so taken with it that since there was not a sountrack available for purchase I used the song listing on the official website and scoured iTunes and Amazon for the song downloads and created my own :-)

Re: “Terrance and Marcella Simien at Bar DKDC

Thanks again for the love and support of Marcella!
It was such a fun night and her band rocked the zydeco songs as well as their own material. They did a killer version, U2 style of Baby Please Come Home backing Terrance.

The Memphis music community has a wonderful history and tradition of supporting their artists and their artists supporting one another. This is not always the case in other places and it shows an evolved and intelligent music culture.

We toured Stax museum when we were there this time with my family in from NC, (Marcella's grandparents). This unity was so obvious as I toured the museum and it really showed the integrity of how even the most celebrated and successful Memphis music artists supported one another. Very righteous!

Re: “Jim Bailey Signs The End of Healing

I think this is a novel everyone should read to find out what we need to do to take care of our own healthcare and be aware of the pitfalls within the medical system. "Follow the money" seems to be the mantra of the drug industry, the insurance system, and even some of the medical professionals themselves! Know how to be aware!
