Clarifications and corrections:
• The broken column pieces are from the Capitol.
• The $150,000 figure cited above is for Edmondson Park's public art, not the park as a whole.
• According to Metro Arts executive director Jen Cole, the idea for the park's outsider-art focus came from Councilman Ronnie Steine, while the idea for the park itself originated with young participants in a "Design Your Neighborhood" project in collaboration with the Nashville Civic Design Center and The Oasis Center.
The Scene apologizes for the errors.
As I recall, he also had a connection to longtime MTSU journalism professor David Badger...
It sure is. A fascinating story, and neither cute nor adorably quirky, as you might fear from the premise.
This is one of their best recent lineups. PLATFORM's been a wish-list item for me since its release. Glad to see Edward Yang's YI YI and the Bollywood blockbuster DILWALE DULHANIA LE JAYENGE, which made Shahrukh Khan one of the biggest stars on the planet.
ATTACK OF THE KILLER TOMATOES is a pretty good example of why calculated attempts at making cult movies almost never work: it has its moments, but arch plus inept does not equal amusing. Still, I can't bring myself to dislike a movie whose marquee name is the San Diego Chicken.
I hope there's never a day we no longer find THE MANITOU or REEFER MADNESS funny.
It's like IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE at Christmastime. Lionel Barrymore even resembles a killer tomato from certain angles.
How could we forget Dogstar? Oh, right, the chloroform.
