They Shoot Pink Elephants, Don't They?

Keep your eyes open with an all new episode and an anything goes buffet of topics, including Dunkin' Donuts, Clarence Clemons, Bill and Ted, and Attack of the 50 Foot Eye Soars.  Also: I reluctantly play for you my brief, slightly cringe-inducing conversation with my idol, Joe Bob Briggs, from Straight Talk with Tonja Walker this past weekend on News Talk 1400 WSTC!

Kathryn Tucker Windham (and Jeffrey!)

A look back at the life of Kathryn Tucker Windham -- photographer, journalist, collector of southern ghost stories and raconteur extraordinaire -- who died this week at 93.  Also: sit down Indian-style on the rug as Ms. Windham tells ya the story of the University of North Alabama in Florence, and the ghost of Molly's dog who haunts a fraternity house there.

So Bad it's...Wood!

If there's anything the past few years have shown us, it's that we really love a bad movie. Well, you know what I mean by that: a bad movie we can laugh at -- one we can show our friends with the parting words: "It's so bad it's good!" And of course they'll know what me mean. How could they not? If there's anything Internet memes have proven, it's that we love to share awesomely bad crap with each other! One week it's some poor kid in Montgomery, Alabama issuing a warning to all would-be rapists on the evening news ("Hide yo husband cause they rapin' everybody out here!"), the next week it's a promo performance of a community musical theatre show about the Rhode Island mafia.
