Fly on the Wall 

MCA ads, Disney, and Foxy Jacky

[f]Art
An ad campaign featuring successful Memphis College of Art grads who "never waited tables" or "folded clothes at the mall" has been making the rounds on Facebook.

To understand why it's making some MCA alums angry, I offer a story composer Philip Glass shared with The Guardian about a time when he still made ends meet as a handyman. According to Glass, an art critic was shocked to discover Glass installing his dishwasher. Glass explained, "I was an artist, but I was sometimes a plumber as well, and that he should go away and let me finish."

Oh, Cruella!
Thanks to R. Jason Rawlings for this shot of the Union Avenue fire station, aptly noting, "Walt Disney goes dark."

Foxy Jacky
Jacqueline McKee (aka Foxy Jacky), Memphis' infamous internet porn star, was arrested at her Cordova home following a domestic dispute. McKee first garnered headlines after releasing a video where she makes good use of a Shelby County sheriff's deputy uniform and a service revolver. "Maybe I'm a little nuts," she told the camera prior to servicing herself with the handgun. McKee was apprehended for allegedly kicking her husband in the head.
