Juke Joint

Po’ Monkey's Juke Joint in Marigold, Mississippi, a patched-up sharecropper shack that has swayed with rhythms and blues for nearly 50 years.

I just love the look of this place. It would cost a Hollywood film producer a good amount to try and recreate this simple scene, and of course, it would never be "as good".

An actual place, as shown recently in the New York Times.

sole survivor?

Based on a 1954 novel, the filming of I AM LEGEND completed in New York City recently, with spectacular and complicated set designs and stunts. I know that my two readers will recognize this photo of a burned-out car on Washington Square North. We wondered what was up with the wrecked cars all over one of the city's most beautiful blocks, and the camo netting covering planters in the park. In the story, Will Smith plays the sole survivor of a vampire plague, an Army doctor who stays behind on the island of Manhattan after the whole place is evacuated. I guess the Shepherd survives as well.

back from the desert

coming in for a landing

City-boy (mostly) Copyranter came out to the Arizona homestead. He saw some cactus, lizards, prairie dogs, peccaries, and a coyote. He ate some mexican food in the barrio. He seems to have survived the ordeal.

famous for absolutely no reason

Does anyone remember Angelyne? She would show up to premieres and restaurant openings in L.A. in her pink corvette. She didn't quite look like the billboards in real life. The rumor was that her husband was an oil sheik, who paid for the ads (and the corvette). My loops are actually bigger than hers, however.

Saturday night, lunar eclipse on a full moon over Manhattan. Fun.
