(F)art Jokes

This new mural painted on the side of Brian's Grocery in Uptown was created with a grant from Wells Fargo. It celebrates the astonishing level of diversity that exists in Memphis by depicting an adorable one-legged alien couple from the Monopodia Star System. They are happy together inside the glow of their protective force-field, safe from natural terrors of the urban core, like giant interdimensional beings from Planet Yellow.

Neverending Elvis

It seems unlikely that Elvis Presley will ever reclaim his position atop the dead celebrity money-making charts. According to Reuters, the zombie King of Rock remains in second place, earning just under $55 million, well behind undead Pop King Michael Jackson who took in a posthumous $140 million.

Savage Lovers

Memphis playwright/filmmaker Morgan Jon Fox received some exposure in Seattle last week when Savage Love sex columnist/media personality Dan Savage linked a video of Fox's play Ann Coulter and Dan Savage In an Elevator On Its Way to Hell on his Slog Blog under the headline "Offered Without Comment." Savage did have one criticism though: "I don't wear collared shirts on CNN. Or anywhere else." Except for on MSNBC, apparently.
