Re: “Cinema Clips: Where to Invade Next

I probably agree almost totally with Michael Moore's political positions. I haven't seen this film yet and it probably wouldn't infuriate me as much as it did Mr Grimm. But he's absolutely right. Moore does have a history of twisting and playing with the facts to match up with his agenda. I remember having a "throw a small car" moment when watching Sicko.

It's not about the political position, it's about the manipulation. Some people consider Michael Moore and the likes of Rush Limbaugh polar opposites. To me, they are 2 sides of the same coin.

Re: “Danehy

For genuine laughs for those who are not politically correct, Blazing Saddles IS the greatest comedy. Some of the others on the list were perhaps "better" movies.
Story behind the final cut of Annie Hall is interesting.

Re: “Here's Your "Tucson Sucks" Article of the Week

#2 is classic Yogi. Nobody goes there anymore. It's too crowded.

The slogan for Phoenix should be "Everything you don't like about Tucson, only more of it".

Re: “Explode Your Mind, Music Fans, with 'Searching for the Wrong-Eyed Jesus'

I own a copy of this movie and highly recommend it.

I'm also a big fan of Johnny Dowd. To call him a 'singer' somewhat stretches the definition but he's a great guitar player and songwriter. He played Vauldeville Cabaret on a thursday night years ago. Just check out the lyrics from a song on Pictures From Life's Other Side:

Ballad of Lonnie Wolf

Shot himself at the trailer park
Couple of hours before it got dark
He did not die, he's paralyzed
Can't even wipe the tears from his eyes

He was playing harp, a lonesome tune
That drove everyone from the room
Pulled his gun from beneath the pillow
He put the barrel up against his temple

Oh Lonnie, you made a big mistake

Now he's in the V.A. hospital
A victim of life's ancient riddle
Tried to die, but he was codemned to give
Death's a gift only God can give

Blink an eye, squeeze a hand
Life stretches out like the desert sand
He got in a hurry, couldn't wait
Lonnie's character sealed his fate

Oh Lonnie, you made a big mistake
Little girl in the next room
She'll be a grown up pretty soon
In her heart there's a broken place
Shattered just like her daddy's face

Big Mistake

Ā© Johnny Dowd

Re: “Gio Taco Announces Its Opening Date and Menu

Downtown had to grow up sometime but unfortunately, it took those with deep pockets to make this happen. Perhaps the 4th ave underpass is becoming a dividing line. Funky 4th and Congress street too good for us plebes.
