How a cult music book became a cult music documentary, and it only took ten years.

This blog is what they call a hostage to fortune. I keep on saying stuff and then, as it's now in the pubic domain or whatever they call it, I have to do it. So here's another hostage. We shot the Mud Boy show last April on High Definition arsekicking multiple camera video and digital sound. Now we plan to have it edited, mixed and ready to screen in Memphis on the tenth anniversary of Lee Baker's death, September 10 2006. That's the plan and now it has to happen. Things are slowly moving forward with the It Came From Memphis film too, albeit on a reduced scale and with a guerrilla mentality, which is probably (let's face it) how it should have been done all along. But it will happen, eventually - we have promised ourselves that. And now it's out there for the world or whoever happens on this to see. Thanks to everybody who has emailed over the months and years with messages of support.
Hey, are you still watching this? If so, what is the status of all these great things you talk about in this blog? I am curious because I am filming a profile on the personification of southern crazy, Ross Johnson, in Memphis next week and since he just completed an albums worth of stuff with Dickinson, should be seeing him as well... I played with Ross on the first It Came From Memphis CD (Wet Bar)... curious about that film project as well... lots of stuff brewing about Memphis, but don't see a lot getting out there, such as the several Big Star docs that are in some state of production...
Unless your guitar-player, song-writer, Memphis recording artist dream turned out so good you have forgotten all previous interests, please let me know the state of your film works...
Thanks - Donald W. Spicer
