… in which Mr. Sinatra and Mr. Zimmerman do battle

I’m a Bob Dylan fan — one of my favorite albums of all time is “Blood on the Tracks” (1975). And there’s no question about Dylan’s transformational role in the history of modern music.

What’s filming in Atlanta now? Michelle Darnell, Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, Table 19, and Survivor’s Remorse

Along with yellow pollen piled along Atlanta's sidewalks, spring has ushered in new thickets of yellow production signs along our roads. This busy month has brought us burned out buses, Texas taxicabs, Chicago newspapers, and scenery from the 1930s and 1980s. Productions are shooting in Midtown, downtown, and a lot of OTP locales.

An ode to an American music masterpiece

Every time I hear this song, I’m struck again by the beauty and power of its lyrics. It’s just sublime, subtle storytelling of a quality that you don’t often get in popular music or anywhere else for that matter. For example, the conversation it recounts at the family dinner table is adroit in the details that it reveals to us, and even more adroit in what it refuses to tell...

Hot but cool? Hey, no problem

How can you be totally hot, yet totally cool? I don’t know the answer. You’d have to ask someone who does. You could begin with Alice Smith, an up-and-coming soul singer with roots in the Augusta area. She pulls it off perfectly, in my humble opinion.

Thai foods are some of my favorite to eat. Similar to Vietnamese cuisine, I enjoy the aromatic herbs and lemongrass, the dynamic acidity, occasional funk, and the spice. It always evokes freshness and afterwards I never feel like I’m dying a slow chicken fried steak death, which isn’t the worst way to leave this world. My complaint is that, at […]
