New Blog Location

I decided to start using Wordpress for blogging to see if I like it. My regular posting will be found there from now on.

Farewell to my favorite clown

I missed this the other day but this is why I read blogs. It helps me keep up with current events without the mainstream media slant to it.

I realize this is not a story based on something "Memphis" but I know it was certainly part of my childhood when we first got cable in the late 80's. The Bozo Show on WGN. 

Everyone wanted to be on the Grand Prize Game so they could win prizes for throwing ping pong balls into the buckets on the floor.

Goodbye to Bozo .

End of the Road

I went to Muvico 22 at Peabody Place last night to see Wanted at the 1035 showing. This was the last showing at Peabody Place ever. Quite a sad night for the people that had been working there for many many years. There's always a sad feeling to see anything arrive at the end of its time. 

I asked the people downstairs taking tickets if anyone would mind if I snapped shots of the building before none of us can get in it again. I will see if I can get them out there to the Lost Memphis site as well so all can enjoy what once was.
