My Photo

Born May 18, 1953; got saved at Truett Memorial BC in Hayesville, NC 1959. On rigged ballot which I did not rig got Most Intellectual class of 71, Gaffney High School. Furman Grad, Sociology major but it was little tougher than Auburn football players had Had three dates with beautiful women the summer of 1978. Did not marry any of em. Never married anybody cause what was available was undesirable and what was desirable was unaffordable. Unlucky in love as they say and even still it is sometimes heartbreaking. Had a Pakistani Jr. Davis Cupper on the Ropes the summer of 84, City Courts, Rome Georgia I've a baby sitter, watched peoples homes while they were away on Vacation. Freelance writer, local consultant, screenwriter, and the best damn substitute teacher of Floyd County Georgia in mid 80's according to an anonymous kid passed me on main street a few years later when I went back to get a sandwich at Schroeders. Had some good moments in Collinsville as well. Ask Casey Mattox at if he will be honest about it. I try my best to make it to Bridges BBQ in Shelby NC at least four times a year.

Green Bananas and Cormac McCarthy

The Coen Brothers talk with Cormac McCarthy

Click on the blog linked and then click on the Time conversation embedded. That is where the green bananas are. It will help you with the sequence of things; prioritize.

Couple things about Cormac. The rest if you don't know by now you probably never will. Google is ready when you are.
But do read Hal Crowther's Take in his Cathedrals of Kudzu. Hal saw him once up in Western North Carolina that one town west of Toxaway on 64; and if I had turned the right corners on the right days downtown Knoxville in the late 70's I woulda seen him too.
Brad Dourif played Cormac's main character in the PBS drama in the late 70's; and some of you know Dourif was Raymond or Raymond's buddy in Blue Velvet.
I almost got to talk to the fellow who did the soundtrack for all the pretty Horses couple weeks ago, but didn't have the presence of mind at the moment.
Did talk to Jimmy Blevins once in Collinsville, Alabama in the presence of Kevin Summerall and Ashley Adrian, and that's pretty good.
But as Cormac has Tommy Lee Jones say in the Coen Brothers Do, comin out around Christmas, No Country for Old Men; and I paraphrase here:
This will Have to Do till one gets here.

Also make sure to read the review when it comes out
