Wizard of Oz--time for a re-do?

Since Alice in Wonderland's been bringing in so much money at the box office, Hollywood is thinking there's big money to be made by re-making the classic 1939 movie, The Wizard of Oz. And no..I'm not talking about the big screen version of the Broadway musical Wicked. Two studios, New Line and Warner Brothers, have Oz projects in the works. You can read about them here. I did some checking of my own, and came across some pre-production notes from one of the planned Wizard of Oz remakes. Here are some of the highlights. *Use a real lion for Cowardly Lion. Idea rejected on advice of attorneys Siegfried and Roy. *Flying Monkeys Casting: Get Peter Tork, Davy Jones,  Michael Nesmith and Mickey Dolenz.  Nesmith has already turned down the offer, the other 3 are in negotiations. *Tin Man revamping: dialog requesting "oil can" must be revised. Replace with renewable energy technology. Perhaps solar? *Possible product placement: Yellow Brick Road to be made of Cheez-its. Ruby Slippers available at Payless? *Post-cyclone setting: Dorothy wakes up in a FEMA trailer. Too political? *Scarecrow Casting: Hey it's a no-brainer. Somebody call George W. Bush.

They can NOT re-make the Wizard of Oz. Nobody can play Dorthy except you or me cuz we know all her lines. I would still probably go see it but I know I would be disappointed cuz there ain't nothing like the real thing baby. Sound like a Coke commercial eh? DBD

World's Worst iPod:Escape Club "Wild Wild West"
Remember when we were headed for the 90s..and grooving to the Escape Club? This band from London scored a number 1 hit in 1988 with the song "Wild Wild West." It's probably the only song you remember from that band--but they weren't a...

World's Worst iPod: Wayne Newton "Daddy Don't You Walk So Fast"

Day 4: The Final Day of Bonnaroo
Today was another busy day at Bonnaroo. We started the day off by seeing Shakey Graves. I missed his show in Madison earlier this year so he was a must see on my list. Loved him! Right as he ended, a press conference with Ed Helms, Abigail...

Day 3: Saturday
Saturday was a very busy day! So many Triple M bands to see! So many concerts were back to back, so we did a lot of walking back and forth from the stages to the media compound. If you're ever in need of getting more steps in during the day,...

Day 2: Friday - Variety, the Spice of Life
Day 2 is upon us! Despite being up fairly late and not sleeping super well (first time camping...I'll get used to it I'm sure), I was hoping to sleep in just a little bit, but my body had other plans. It woke me up at 5:45am for the hell of it. I...

World's Worst iPod: Engelbert Humperdinck "After the Lovin'"
One of the great things about radio in the 60s and 70s is the variety of music that made it onto the radio.  A rock song by Led Zeppelin could be followed up by Paul Anka or Andy Williams. A polka could make it to top 40 right alongside a disco song...
