Pop-Rock Candy Mountain: Because Life Doesn’t Write Itself

  • Mitt Romney: He has officially endorsed John McCain. Now, if only that pesky Mike Huckabee would do the same.
  • Tupelo Symphony Orchestra: They will be performing American Music, American Voices tonight at the Link Centre. Jack Reed Sr. will be the guest speaker. More information can be found at the Link Centre online.
  • 11th Annual Magnolia Independent Film Festival: The state’s oldest film festival continues tonight ad tomorrow at Hollywood Premiere Cinema in Starkville. Local film maker Daniel Lee will be showing his film Memphis Zombie Attack: The Documentary tonight. Read more about Lee and his film in Pop-Rock Candy Mountain later today.
  • Blue Mountain: America’s favorite band from Oxford will be performing tonight at the Hi-Tone in Memphis. Ticket information can be found here.
  • Gretchen Wilson: The female member of the Musik Mafia will be performing tonight at Gold Strike Casino in Tunica. For more information, call 1-888-245-7529.
  • Bobby “Blue” Bland: The blues legend will be joining Shirley Brown, J. Blackfoot and others tonight for a Blues Bash at Sam’s Town Casino in Tunica. For more information, click here.
  • Saturday Morning Show With Kay Bain: My favorite morning program is only a day away! Thank goodness for my DVR. This week’s special guest will be the Kevin Waide Project, who will also be playing the Boondocks Grill Saturday night.
  • Aretha vs Beyonce vs Beyonce’s Dad: “Hey 19, that’s Aretha Franklin. She don’t remember the Queen of Soul…”
  • LOST (ABC): The fourth member of the Oceanic Six? Syid. Jack admits that, after 100 days, he misses baseball.
  • Jane Fonda: She let one “slip” on Today. But the worst part is that she’s 70 and starring in the Vagina Monologues. Ewwwww….
  • Dale Earnhardt Jr.: The NASCAR driver finished first in his qualifying competition, his second in two races for Hendrick Motorsports, his new team. Also, Danny Hamlin won in a foreign car for the first time in a long time. His car? A Toyota.

  • Adrienne Shelly: The slain actress/director’s killer (read: murderer) was given a reduced sentence as his charges were dropped to first degree manslaughter. Shelley made on of my favorite movies of 2007 , Waitress. It breaks my heart every time I watch it.
  • Survivor: Micronesia (CBS): Fan Mary was voted out at Tribal Council. The real question is when is Survivor going to get voted off? It is so boring that I doubt if I will be able to make it through the whole season.
  • Dick Rice: No Dick Rice sightings today. One time my band played on the Mornin’ Show and Meteorologist John Dolusic said we “sounded like Blind Melon.” That was awesome. Here’s the mighty Chicago. Have a great weekend!

Pop-Rock Candy Mountain: Because Life Doesn’t Write Itself

  • New Indiana Jones Trailer: It should be on the web after nine AM. It will be shown during Good Morning America on ABC. But hey, I’m a Today kind of guy.
  • New Star Wars: Ok, so, it’s animated, but it’s coming to theaters this summer and then, new episodes will appear on Cartoon Network. New Indie and Star Wars? (my head just exploded.) Take a sneak peek at the Official Star Wars Site.
  • Steven Spielberg: Keeping on with my Indie/Star Wars obsession, Steven Spielberg has backed out of participating in the Beijing Olympics as an artistic director due to China’s policy on Darfur.
  • Spectacular Spider-Man: I promise–it’s not Fanboy day here at PRCM. However, the CW will begin airing Spectacular Spider-Man in March as part of its Saturday morning line-up. It follows the adventures of a 16 year old Peter Parker/Spider-Man. No word yet if Spidey will battle such teen issues as puberty, peer pressure or teenage depression.
  • King Dork: Frank Portman’s brilliant novel of teen angst and alienation is now available in paperback. Get one here. This is one of the best and most hilarious books I have ever read. I mean, for real.
  • Big Brother 9: Man, I tried to watch this nonsense, but I just couldn’t get down with it. Anyway, host Julie Chen welcomes back the same gang of sex-starved nihilists and narcicists that you would expect from this show. I think they all live in the same house and the last one to catch the VD gets a prize.
  • Radiohead: Tickets for the Atlanta show go on sale tomorrow. Great. Like I don’t have enough things to be stressed-out and depressed over on Valentine’s Day. Now, I have to try (or not) to get tickets for a concert that’s not until like May or something. Dang. I already feel like a loser on Valentine’s Day–I don’t need the added pressure.
  • The Hobbit: After all of the ruckus between Peter Jackson and New Line Cinema, it looks like The Hobbit could be in danger of being halted. The family of JRR Tolkien and his original publisher, HarperCollins, have engaged in a lawsuit against New Line Cinema, which could stop The Hobbit from being completed. (Fanboys across the world just died a little bit on the inside)
  • Steve Gerber: The creator of Howard The Duck died at age 60 on Tuesday. Gerber wrote some of my favorite comics growing up, including the 1970s KISS series for Marvel that was written with KISS blood in the ink. (Fanboys continue to die inside across the globe)
  • NASCAR: Drivers Kurt Busch and Tony Stewart were suspended for six races for alleged poor sportsmanship. And this was just a PRACTICE or qualifying race. Dang.
  • Cosby Show Reunion: It happened Tuesday on Oprah–without Lisa Bonet….of course. Why y’all still hating on her? Angel Heart was like 100 years ago.
  • Pat Benatar: My sister says she’s appearing on the Young And The Restless on Thursday and Friday. And my sister knows her Young And The Restless. (I checked. It’s happening)
  • Jericho: It came back for its second season last night, and it was good. But it was different…
  • Kevin Waide Project: They will be appearing on Saturday Morning With Kay Bain. Check them out–Kevin’s a great guitar player and Skip Oliver is an awesome harmonica player. Plus, he’s just a great guy–love me some Skip Oliver.
  • Julee Brown: While we’re on the subject of WTVA, which I love (obviously), I was a bit upset about the demise of the Mornin’ Show–but I’m over it. I heart Julee Brown on AM Live. She is just super awesome. No one (well, not me) likes to be up that early in the morning, but she makes it seem like the day is going to be ok. According to her bio, she is a motivational speaker, so that makes sense.
  • Tupelo-Lee Humane Society Valentine’s Day Special: The big day is tomorrow. Get your special friend a pet today.
  • Sabrina McLarty: The 22 year old film maker from Saltillo will be the subject of a Valentine’s Day interview with PRCM. Look for it tomorrow.
  • Mississippi Mudcats: William Stewart and Antonio Peoples have been resigned for the upcoming season, which rocks. The Mudcats also have a great promotion to help the Tupelo-Lee Humane Society. More Mudcat information can be found here.
  • The WGA Strike: The good news is: It’s over and new episodes of The Office, 30 Rock, My Name Is Earl, Lost and Smallville will be airing in April/May. The bad news? 24 is out until January 2009. Dang. Check out your favorite show’s expected return here.
  • Dick Rice: Tuesday was a severe weather day, so there were no Dick Rice sightings. But, today’s a new day.



  • THE MILE-HIGH-FIVE-CLUB

    Paul Thorn Tupelo native Paul Thorn returns to town Thursday night with a show at the Lyric Theater. His new video,A Long Way From Tupelo, is currently playing on GAC and a limited edition of his album of the same name will be available at the show. For more information, go to http://www.paulthorn.com/ 1. First, I have to say, Bluebell Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream. I try keep it down to one heaping bowl full a week since it's full of saturated fats and I'm a 43 year old trying to keep up the image of a front man. BUT, sometimes I'm weak and I backslide. 2. My Six Million Dollar Man Pinball machine. I finally got it fixed and have been playing it a lot. My 4 year old is learning how to play it so we get to play it together. 3. Saturday mornings, I get up and watch Kay Bain. I've been a loyal WTVA viewer for many years but I get a little upset because they've cut Kay down to just being on once a week. I love Kay Bain. You know, my coffee just tastes better with Kay Bain. 4. I've recently thrown out my old socks. I went to Wal-mart and bought a 12-pack of brand new white socks. I got them all for about eight bucks so I've been really happy about that. 5. My 14 year old daughter, Kit has become a facination. I've always been all about my daughter but now she's coming out with this Aretha Franklin style, powerful voice and I've just been amazed. I love listening to her sing.
