Re: “Nashville Seeking Extras

I would love to do this. It has always been a dream to. I have had people to tell me I would never be nothing. So I would like to prove to them I am somebody.

Re: “Nashville Seeking Extras

Being an extra in a Hollywood production is fun. Awhile back, the casting director for a movie being shot in Kansas City, Missouri saw me leave an Xmas party being thrown by a high school classmate who was her next door neighbor. Apparently she liked my look, and asked the classmate to call me to see if I was interested in appearing as an extra in the movie, which was called 'Article 99'. Next thing I know, I am standing in the corridor of a long-vacant hospital in mid-town Kansas City with about a dozen other extras, watching Ray Liotta, Keifer Sutherland, and Lea Thompson amble past us all to various destinations around the place like so-called regular folk. I was even chosen to appear in a scene in the movie playing an orderly named 'Bill' who liked to physically abuse the patients, and was doing so with another extra strapped to a gurney until actress Kathy Baker playing a doctor ran up and chastised me for it and swore that she would no longer allow me to get away with doing it. We did about twenty takes of a, at best, a two-minute long scene, and the director's only words to me after the tenth one was "Be more mean."

Needless to say, I was edited out of the final version. But it was all still a memorable experience.

August seems so far away.

Re: “Nashville Seeking Extras

The dates are actually listed incorrectly as we forgot to update them before the notice was sent out. DATES SHOULD BE 7/16/15 - 4/15/16

Re: “Nashville Seeking Extras

This article was evidently written last year. The dates are 7/16/15 (when the taping season starts) through 4/10/15, which is when taping ends for the season. Once you have your profile in the system, check the On Location Casting Facebook page everyday between those dates to see what parts are available for the following day.

Re: “Nashville Seeking Extras

Hi! I'm really interested in applying for this, but I'm a little confused by the dates. It says the shoots are between 07/16/13 and 04/10/14, is this a typo? What are the exact dates? Sorry, I'm British so it could be my fault as we write it the other way around! Thanks!

Re: “Artist John Sims Talks 'Southern Motel' and How He Uses Confederate Imagery in His Art

I was a student at Gettysburg College when the exhibit above happened. I remember two things from it: 1) John Sims wanted to hang the flag outside the gallery building but the college administration wouldn't let him, instead compromising for the indoor installation seen above. As a result, Sims protested his own exhibit and all surrounding events, and 2) It PISSED OFF the Sons of Confederate Veterans and KKK in the area (the KKK held a "rally" at the Peace Light to "protest" the exhibit, which I drove through - completely harmless...). I have to say though...I really enjoyed the pink and purple sparkly "drag queen" flag with the white feather boas. That was good stuff. ;)

Re: “Nashville Artist Donna Woodley Responds to 'Southern Motel' Controversy

Really? I bunch of pinky-finger-extended scolds backslapping each other and extolling the virtues of a bold, feminist girl-power artist, while at the same time finger-wagging at those Others amongst Us, the Rednecks. All this without the artist. We'll just make shit up.

"Julia Martin, the owner of the gallery that represents Sheila B., has organized a panel discussion for 5:30 p.m. Friday, July 10, at White Avenue Studio (2517 White Ave. in Berry Hill). Sheila B. will be out of town..."

Re: “Nashville Artist Donna Woodley Responds to 'Southern Motel' Controversy

I miss the reason why this particular person got all this space to talk about this subject? She's a young, black artist from Memphis that lives in Massachusetts. Fine enough qualities, but let's not think we have an authority or any new insight here. I assume she's a friend of yours?

Are there no acclaimed female authors on Southern soul?

Re: “Five Reasons Not to Miss The Last Dragon Midnight This Weekend at Belcourt

Looks like the Belcourt's midnight-movie policy is to only show flicks that are unwatchable unless you're stoned. Appeals to the target audience of young white "hipsters."

But if it pays for things like the Stanwyck and Altman retrospectives, I guess we'll have to tolerate it.

If art doesn't matter to you, Willie, you've stumbled onto the wrong blog.
