Tedious screenplay, but good performances.

Re: “Gonerfest 11: Blood, Sweat, and Beers

Have to agree about NOTS.
Also, kudos to Rocket Science for doing their work without elbowing out the audience which often happens when video is going on.

Re: “Mabon "Teenie" Hodges

Re: 20-75. A master guitarist at work, indeed. Except it's Reggie Young, not Teenie, on that track. Young later went on to fame as part of Chips Moman's house band at American Studio backing up Elvis, Bobby Womack, Joe Tex, Dusty Springfield, B.J. Thomas, The Box Tops, etc. He's the guitarist on most of Willie Mitchell's recordings up until around 1966 when he left Hi and joined up with Chips. Teenie cited Reggie as his all time favorite guitarist.

Re: “Dr. John Digs the Mighty Souls

In addition to the Mighty Souls getting some stage time with the good Doctor, the bulk of the excellent horn section that performed during the rest of the show were Memphians as well, including former leader of the Jumpin' Chi Chis Reid McCoy as 'guest trumpeter', New Orleans ex-pat Brian "Breeze" Cayolle on sax, and Gary Topper also on sax. I was wondering at first why the trombone player/musical director was having to read the names of the horn players off of a piece of paper during the band introductions but quickly realized why when I heard the names and when she said that "Breeze" got the horn section together for the show.

Re: “The Equalizer

You're not far off. I was actually working at escape artists entertainment, the production company that developed this project, when it was just getting off the ground. I asked one of the other assistants, "why the equalizer?" He told me, "Todd (Black) likes the title. The Equalizer. He thinks it would look good on a poster." So there you have it - a first hand account of the level of thought that goes into the average Hollywood movie.

Re: “Southern Circuit Tour Of Independent Film: My Toxic Backyard

Buncombe County Government, et al, should be held accountable for denying the people their 1st Amendment regarding CTS and other corruption in local government. The media also plays a part in this conspiracy to cover-up. Check out Landis, et al v. Buncombe County Government, et al 1:14-cv-00146 Civil Rights Lawsuit filed Pro se becuse No Attorney will step up to fight the corruption in the Big Boys Club.
