Re: “On the Move: Ground Floor Gallery Relocates, Owner Janet Decker Yanez Talks Art

Ditto, great article, and can tell you, the new space is excellent...a tiny step around the corner, past the tracks , for Wedgewood/Houston crawl. Janet is always on the move, in all the right directions.

Re: “Movies That Made Me Want to Start a Band

ALMOST FAMOUS has made a lot of people want to become writers. Just don't show it to someone who has no interest in journalism or rock music. They'll find it utterly boring. I've learned this from the experience of recommending it to people who were left cold by it.

Re: “Movies That Made Me Want to Start a Band

Ironic that most of those movies focus on how much of a pain in the ass it is to be in a band, yet that's what drives people's interest. Go figure. The scene really can be as brutal (and still as fun) as these movies show.

Check out this article for an insider look at the worst problems in the band scene: http://bit.ly/5-scene-problems -- Total self-plug, I know, no spam intended. Just seems like a good companion article to give some perspective.

Thanks for the write-up! Airheads is one of my fav movies of all time!

"How 'Plan 9' earned, and lost, the title of worst movie of all time"

I've never regarded PLAN 9 as the worst movie ever. It's certainly not good, but it's watchable and entertaining. A truly excruciating movie like HOWARD THE DUCK (mentioned in this article) is much, much worse.

Absolutely thrilled to see this. Two of my favorite photographers. Icons. To have something like this in Nashville is simply fantastic.
Thanks to Ms. Sherrick, Tinney Contemporary and everyone else who is making this possible!

God bless local bookstores. They've been keeping it real since Gutenburg did his thing.

Re: “Ed Wood: The Musical? God Help Us in the Future!

After Ed Wood's MANY years of of being maligned (up until the Burton/Depp collaboration), I feel this is a great idea! I hope it's tempered with the kindness shown to Ed in the Lugosi era of his career shown in Tim's opus.

Re: “In Honor of Sorcerer: Your Kandy-Kolored Tangerine Dream Top 10, Baby

They should have to pay royalties to composer Steve Reich (and Phillip Glass to a lesser extent) for the blatant imitations, Risky Business in particular. Effective blatant imitations in this context, of course.

Re: “In Honor of Sorcerer: Your Kandy-Kolored Tangerine Dream Top 10, Baby

The THIEF soundtrack was something I wore out (on cassette) in high school. Great music for nocturnal prowling.

Boy, does that percolating RISKY BUSINESS soundtrack bring back memories. (And not just of Rebecca DeMornay, though those are appreciated.)

Re: “Your Pride Month Movie Selection: Top Gun Midnight at The Belcourt

TOP GUN wasn't even subtle, what with shirtless guys gyrating in slow motion to a song called "Playing With the Boys."

Re: “Feminism, Perfume and Marlene Dietrich: A Conversation With Author Barbara Herman

According to WikiPedia: "The former name Saigon is still widely used by many Vietnamese, especially in informal contexts. Generally, the term Saigon refers only to the urban districts of Ho Chi Minh City."

Re: “Porter Flea Preview at Track One This Weekend

Surprised by your negativity whether Friday or Saturday for one of your paid advertisers.
I have attended all of the Porter Flea markets and from day one the event has catered to both vendors and attendees. Wide aisles and great merchandise results in success for both attendee and the vendor; many of whom have remarked that Porter Flea is their best sales market ever and the best experience as a vendor. Porter Flea is more than a pop-up shop.
This type of event takes months of planning and coordination and brings a host of benefits to the Nashville art scene. (Kudos to the owners/organizers!!) In the future, I suggest a more positive spin on events of this type but especially if they are paid advertisers in your publication; your own impatience is your own personal problem.

Re: “John Green and Nat Wolff on The Fault in Our Stars

"The Stand" was made into a "for tv" movie quite some time ago. It was shown over the course of several nights, kind of like a mini series. And it was WONDERFUL. It will be interesting to see if it fares as well on the big screen.

Re: “William Friedkin's Restored Nailbiter Sorcerer Arrives at Belcourt This Weekend

Not that STAR WARS had much originality, either. It wouldn't have existed without the serials and pulp sci-fi of the '30s, and the comic books of Jack Kirby.

I don't think SORCERER is as good as WAGES OF FEAR (few movies are), but it's still damned good.

No, I've never seen THE OTHER SIDE OF MIDNIGHT. But I did see DAMNATION ALLEY (groan). And, now that I think of it, one of the best James Bond movies (THE SPY WHO LOVED ME) was a hit in summer '77.

Re: “Zardoz, the Ultimate in WTF Sci-Fi, Saturday at Logue's

I'd rather see John Frankenheimer's FRENCH CONNECTION II again than the Friedkin original. Not that there's anything wrong with the original, but the sequel deserves more attention than it's gotten over the years.

And it has a VERY satisfying ending.

Re: “William Friedkin's Restored Nailbiter Sorcerer Arrives at Belcourt This Weekend

Agreed that SORCERER deserves its cult, though, An adventure movie hasn't left me that wrung-out in a long time.
