Re: “Bad Movie Double Feature

I'd like to see these two, also, but yes, "Myra" certainly needs to be on the Top Five Worst. On another note, I wonder if there's such a list for Movies That Are Allegedly Good But I Think They Suck.

Re: “Bad Movie Double Feature

Gotta check these out. I've never seen either one.

In the meantime, 1970's "Myra Breckinridge" gets my vote for worst movie ever. The cast was bizarro: Raquel Welch, Mae West, John Huston, Farrah Fawcett, Jim Backus, Tom Selleck and even Rex Reed. I'm guessing the casting director was out of his skull on mescaline.

Re: “Bad Movie Double Feature

Believe it or not!

My vote goes to "The Room", largely because James Franco likes the films director, writer, and star.

Re: “Flyer Music's Weekend Punch List

Why no mention of "Playing for Change" at the Shell?

Re: “The Cut-Up

I met him today on beale street as my friends and i were passing through memphis. He walked up to me asking for an ankh i made of copper wire that same day and he proceeded to show us all sorts of cool things including all the techniques i use to bend wire, a dvd player with a documentary of his life, and a drawing of us he traded for a drawing one of us did in his own sketchbook. Fucking blown away

Re: “Flyer Music's Weekend Punch List

Thank you, Eli. I appreciate your participation. Let me know what I can do better or how you think you could improve what we do. Or, hell, have at it here. I've been a disgruntled reader and still am. Feedback is helpful. Thanks again.

Re: “Friday Night Freakshow

Oops... Friday Night Freakshow. I thought this was the link to the Stacey Campfield musical. I mean, the teaser/headline seemed logical.

Re: “When "American Pickers" Met Prince Mongo

I can't believe this guy is still alive! I remember him from my days growing up in Memphis in the 70's and 80's! I guess he's always been and always will be delightfully...odd. :)

Re: “Pharrell Williams' MEMPHIS Hat.

The cruel reality, though, is that Pharrell William's head is actually the same size as the oversized Mountie's chapeau, and fills it completely... D.A. just wore hats for the heck of it, and also for the admiring looks elicited from da wimmin back then.

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!!
