Random Items and a Plea for Support

Item 1: Went to the Jordan's, sang karaoke. My buddy Joe Smith (Almost Made) was bartending. My girl Lina Fritsche (Unholy Passion) was singing KT Tunstall's "Black Horse and the Cherry Tree" as I came in the door. I sang "Jack and Diane" by John Mellencamp, and "Anniversary" by Tony Toni Tone. I was a little pitchy and my voice was scratchy. Hey, I can't rock a crowd of thousands (okay, seven people) every night. Even the King has off days.

Item 2: Yesterday was Dick Gregory's birthday. Dick Gregory is a very funny comedian and activist. I've heard him speak and he is a very powerful speaker and a very straightforward individual. As far as I'm concerned, he's a national treasure.

Item 3: On the campus of my alma mater, the University of Memphis, a Caucasian student quit his fraternity because they gave him grief over dating an African-American female. What the hell?! This is 2006, people!!! We are all pink on the inside. We all bleed blood, we laugh, we cry, feel, wish, hope, dream, sing 80s hair bands at the top of our lungs (okay, maybe, not that last one), etc. And if you're a Christian, uh, I hate to break it to you, but heaven is not segregated!!! In the immortal words of Larry Fishburne in School Daze, WAKE UP!!!

Item 4: I will now go into telethon mode and beg and plead for you all to see some films that I'm in. See said films below.

6:45 PM The Importance of Being Russell

On the verge of his 10th wedding anniversary, Russell is mired in self-doubt. His inventions have yet to take off. Adding insult to injury, his wife Sissy buys similar items off the Cranium Concepts Best Bargain Network. Backed into a corner, Russell's only way out is to find his 'importance' and prove his worth. With a cryptic voice from the TV urging him to build a new invention, Russell solves the paradoxes of time travel and long distance telecommunications without roaming fees. His creation, the Time Machine Telephone, will revolutionize..everything. But is it the answer he is searching for?
Director: Sean Plemmons, 98 minutes
