Re: “Pharrell Williams' MEMPHIS Hat.

Hey, Joe! Where ya going with that hat in your hand? Perception is not always reality, and Pharrell's hat barely resembles D.A. Hunt's hat - even in a stretch. That said, it is true that D.A. Hunt is recognized worldwide, especially in Memphis. Or he should be. We can quit rolling our eyes and remove our firmly planted tongues-in-cheek....

Re: “"Nashville" is Returning to Nashville to the tune of $5.5 million

I am so thrilled that Nashville is continuing AND will be filmed in Nashville! Having briefly lived there and visited many to times, I think they've accurately captured that city's unique vibe as well as the behind the scenes life of the music business. I thought the season finale was excellent....loved how they wove the cliffhangers for each character!! (I just knew that Juliette and Rayna would have to learn to work together! Juliette may have finally found her best mother-figure, or at least a great big sister who can watch her back! Between the two of them, I could see some major Girl Power in action....much-needed in the music-biz!)
I hope they aren't thinking of moving little Charlotte off to the sticks for too long, though. The show needs her special 'will-o-the-wisp' quality to capture the types of spirit some creative types......the ones who are truly artists but can't stand the glaring lights of fame. Perhaps her hiatus to the country could lead her to cross paths with the character who is coming to terms with his sexuality......aren't they both forced to determine now who they really are and how fame will work for or against them? They form an interesting parallel which could have great storyline hopes the writers will explore them. This is one of the few shows I will plan my time around......KEEP IT GOING.......HERE IN TENNESSEE! (And maybe next up 'MEMPHIS'!!?! Hel-lo-oo....We,ve already got Craig Brewer, a noted director......uh, LIVING HERE!!!)

Re: “"Nashville" is Returning to Nashville to the tune of $5.5 million

If rumors are true there is a feature film coming to Memphis in the Fall. We as Tennesseans MUST guide the state to understand that motion picture/TV production is good PERIOD!! Regardless of where it happens in the state. If we can't do that then the work in Middle Tennessee, which employes workers from all over the state, will have a finite lifespan and the workers here will move or get out of the business. We have to get past feast or famine. I don't remember anyone complaining when Memphis was the it place in the state for features or when Knoxville was booming with HGTV projects.
Bickering amongst one another isn't going to help us. If you want your feelings heard contact your State Reps and the Govenor! Often and right NOW!!

I swear I just read that Nashville was on the verge of cancellation. It was renewed, but evidently ratings aren't very good.

Re: “Film Review: "Fading Gigolo"

In Hollywood, only beautiful sexy women have a need for gigolos. If these women were under-aged, it would be a Woody Allen movie.

Re: “Time Warp Drive-In and "Purple Rain"

Time Warp Drive-In is running monthly all summer long.

Re: “Time Warp Drive-In and "Purple Rain"

I was there and it was a great experience! Will this event go on all summer long or was it a one time thing? It was a great idea to watch classic movies under the stars.

Re: “Memphis Punk in 1992

Truth be told, of all the places where I misspent my misspent manchildhood I probably miss Babylon even more than the Antenna (Sorry James!). Only because when I was very poor-- and I was often in that condition-- I could buy a heaping bowl of beans and rice with some kind of good salsa or relish for a buck. A BUCK! One yankee dollar. Menu price. And be treated just like a customer ordering the most expensive thing on the menu. Babylon kept me alive in a hard season. The only bad experience I ever had was when a kind Rainbow brother followed me around all evening spouting awful blank verse poetry to "repay" some kindness I can't even recall.

Funny. Back then I'd see Tim Sampson sitting at a table with friends and a bottle of wine and I'd think, "someday I'll go to work for the Memphis Flyer--- and I'll be rich too!" Perspective is a weird, weird thing.

WEED! Dirty hippies! Man, I remember the goat-cheese salad from Babylon Cafe, it was amazing.

Re: “Memphis Punk in 1992

Despite all the profound BS espoused by the brilliant twenty-somethings interviewed in the historical footage, it really boils down to one thing. Young girls like new music. If you were in a band, promoted the bands, or were in any way connected to the bads, you had first dibs on the girls. Period.

Re: “Memphis Punk in 1992

I've seen this, so bizarre Channel 5's concept of punk and underground. Should of gotten some of those Vegan Reich kids in there to make it interesting.
