Fly on the Wall 1480 

Art
Last week a 22-year-old photograph of Memphis golfer John Daly and a streaker interrupting Daly's shot at the British Open made its way around Twitter with the tag, "Basically a Renaissance painting."

Others instantly tested the theory by running the photo through art filters, and measuring it against the golden mean. Measures up.

Verbatim
"Make yourself the preeminent conservative in the state. Remember, it is a competition, and by passive aggressively one-upping all other politicians, you can appear to be really nice, but in reality, you are crushing the reputations and political futures of potential opponents.

Which is good to do because self-centered, attention-grabbing is a useful skill to ensure your future political success." — Fake Mae Beavers.

This passage is a brief excerpt from a long, brutal email parodying Beavers, the porn-busting Conservative state Senator and gubernatorial candidate. The email went public last week after being circulated by political insiders.

Neverending Elvis
"Million Dollar Quartet made money, and it was great and had no negativity about Elvis. But it was no Jersey Boys or Lion King." — Corey Salter, an executive vp for EPE's parent company, Authentic Brands Group.

Salter was talking to Deadline Hollywood about Heartbreak Hotel, a new musical by Million Dollar Quartet playwright Floyd Mutrux. Heartbreak Hotel starts tryouts this summer, aiming for an eventual Broadway run.
