|"It's not Texas hot, but it's still pretty f*^@ing hot."|
I took this pic of James McMurtry right up at the stage. I liked his dusty boots and the crumpled bill near his foot. Later, seeing him interact with fans after the show, I was reminded of the film "Crazy Heart." McMurtry seemed pretty drunk and more than a little burned out with whole doing shows every night and dealing with fans bit. So, drunk & grumpy like your friend's bad luck first husband. But still, he put on a good show even if he screwed up the verses in Choctaw Bingo.

I'm so glad to have been spared the ordeal of going through a sell down of my bookstore. I can understand why the remaining employees resorted to communicating with customers via notes posted behind the registers. It is very sad this bookstore is closing. I hope everyone will find new jobs soon.
Also learned today that an acquaintance is closing her beautiful clothing store on Main Street after 18 years.
Recovery, my ass.

It is the custom on this blog to highlight films that should not be missed (check out the topic/label titled "see this film"). And, usually, since I'm very picky about both films and books, I rarely watch films I dislike unless it's on a plane -- hence my unfortunate encounters with Lady in the Water and Bicentennial Man. Somehow though, the last two DVDs from netflix were duds. They weren't even bad enough to make entertaining picks for bad movie nights. They were mediocre bad. So, here's a heads up from our last two inadvertent bad movie experiences:
Margot at the Wedding - Nicole Kidman, I have only one question. Why?
Wilbur Wants to Kill Himself - I had some dark thoughts myself while watching this movie -- horrible.
