New Music & Ten Years After

Over the next few weeks, we will be entertaining some interesting musical guests at the studio. The Pink Spiders are coming to Charlotte on Wed. November 12 to play at the Alley Cat on College St. Just another stop in a long tour all over the place. We're looking forward to meeting the Pink Spiders for the first time. Check out their new video Gimme Chemicals, from their latest CD, Sweat it Out on Geffen Records.

And after that, on Nov. 23, slide guitar, blues wizard Terry Garland is dropping in. Tens years ago - tomorrow, November 9, 1998, Terry Garland played some wicked slide guitar for us live in the studio. This was the first time I met him, though I had heard some of his music on CD. What a thrill! And now, 10 years later, again COOL! Is life fun or what?

Moby Dick & Wuthering Heights

There are a lot of decent film adaptations of literary works at LikeTelevision, such as To Kill A Mockingbird, A Farewell to Arms, The Most Dangerous Game, An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge, The Scarlet Pimpernel and Cyrano de Bergerac - to name but i few. I hope to add a search phrase widget to work with the database to assist in pulling out this information. More on this in another post.

And here's a few more movie adaptation of great books - first, Herman Melville's Moby Dick starring Gregory Peck as Captain Ahab.

Another terrific gem is Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights starring Laurence Olivier, Merle Oberon, and David Niven.
