I know this article is old but I find some of it ridiculous. The truth is Nashville was willing to build a new stadium and we were not. The Liberty Bowl is a horrible stadium that not only is not NFL caliber, but it isn't even a decent college stadium. I really think part of it too has to do with this city's obsession with the SEC. The SEC has overlooked Memphis for many years yet you don't hear people talk about that. Listen to a local sports show and it is going to be 90 percent SEC talk and very limited Tiger talk when it comes to football. Personally I prefer the pro game and it is fun at a Titans game. We should all try and embrace the Titans throughout the state, just like the Grizzlies should do more in Nashville to make themselves the state's team. Love the Titans.
I'd Pay to hear these guys!
The Act of Killing is very much worth seeing. It does a great service by highlighting the impunity that persists in Indonesia for the crimes depicted in the film. This impunity continues for other serious human rights violations by Indonesia, for example for the illegal invasion and occupation of East Timor and for ongoing abuse in West Papua. Human rights groups are supporting an appeal from survivors for the Indonesian government to acknowledge the truth about the 1965 crimes and to apologize and provide reparations to the victims and their families.

Still shorter than some of our esteemed posters' posts on school unification.
Definitely a long article.
Enjoyed it, but it was long.
I miss Skip. But still, congrats Guys!
Hmm... the new venue superior to the old venue in every way? The new venue is the same poorly air conditioned hotbox that the old one was, and at least for gonerfest, the outdoor sitting/chatting/drinking space in front of the new venue is teenie tiny compared with the large space behind the old hi-tone. Great gonerfest musically, though.
Excellent points, Theresa.
I'm sorry, but you cannot tell who or what that is, since it is in black and white and not focused well. Even if it was Elvis, why would he show up now?
Great article Chris!
I was there at the concert, and Lisa was amazing! She was so comfortable with the stage and put on a great performance! There were a variety of songs, and she sang each one so well! I bought the CD and it is by far, the best one yet! Your talent is shining through your music! What a fun evening! We adore you!
Well said, man.
Paul you just wrote the book on Shawn in a few intense and deeply moving words. This just gave me chills.
Great read! Thanks
Thank you so much for sharing, Paul. Shawn is one of the reasons I made Memphis my home. I hope to make it down for some of the celebration.
I was there and it was awesome! Fabulous show! She was loving the Memphis audience and they loved her back. Perfect weather! Parking sucked!
Okay, my last crazy theory: Walter White gets busted for speeding on the way to kill the Nazis. He can't even enact his revenge fantasy, he's so broken a man. He takes the ricin before being captured. The police pull pressure off of Skyler since they have Walt/he's dead. The Nazis keep Jesse forever in a cage, making him cook. He's alive (can't kill himself, for Brock reasons) but in hell.
Hahahaha, that would be the funniest dark ending ever!
Nevermind, I give up trying to predict BREAKING BAD. It's always so much better than anything I can come up with.
