Re: “Best and Worst Acoustics in Memphis

"...and veteran speakers including Willie Herenton, Thaddeus Matthews, and Sidney Chism know how to project, with or without a microphone."

Oh, my. And what did the Thad-Man have to say...

Re: “The 2011 Beale Street Music Festival Lineup: Annotated


You're kidding, right?

I see their cds in the bargain bin all the time. They're so bad, 1996 doesn't even want them back.

Re: “Say Uncle

Repeated applications of hot sauce, coupled with ingesting hot, spicy and/or well-seasoned foods over a period of months will build up a tolerance. In time you will learn to love hot things and may, if you're lucky, experience the "pepper high" which is akin to the "runner's high", something I've never had because it's just too easy to eat a scotch bonnet or three and call it a day.

One piece of advice when tackling hot foods: never drink water. Or tea, lemonade, sodas, etc. as they just spread the heat in your mouth. If you must drink anything cold, make it a beer, for obvious reasons. Crackers, bread, cornbread, biscuits and the like will absorb the heat.

Re: “20 < 30

Congratulations to all these talented, young, vibrant folks.

Maybe it's just the scientist in me, but we are ALL people of color. If we didn't have a color we couldn't see one another!!! That whole "light reflecting off objects is what we see, while what we can't is absorbed by said object" bit we (allegedly) learned in science classes? Remember that from school?

Re: “The Epping Way Mystery

According to the Google Earth historical photos it appears that, prior to demolition, the property had become a trash dump. The 2/27/2006 photo clearly reveals a burned-out vehicle just south of the filled-in pool. Weird.

Regarding the surrounding apartments, called "Jamesbridge":


...and a couple of years later:


Note that the "clubhouse/office with swimming pool" the articles refer to isn't the Epping Forest Club, which was already gone by this time.

But back to the real question at hand: Why was the club property donated to MCS? Anybody with real estate or tax knowledge have an idea?

Re: “App for That

That would be the "Drake & Zeke In The Morning" radio program.
