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

U2 Unplugged
Rolling Stone Magazine got U2 to perform their new song "The Miracle (of Joey Ramone)" acoustically--and it's pretty great! Maybe we should invite them to come in and play for us in Studio M!
World's Worst iPod: LeBlanc & Carr "Falling"
LeBlanc and Carr were Lenny LeBlanc and Pete Carr, two Muscle Shoals studio musicians who hit the top 40 in 1978 with their hit "Falling." It made it up to #13 on the charts and was perfect for clumsy teenage slow dancing! Musically, these guys were...

Kitty's night in a haunted house
Before Friday, my only experience with a haunted house, commercial or otherwise, was at the Recreation Department in Stevens Point when I was a teenager, and as I remember I was FREAKED out. So I was a little nervous when Jonathan and I were asked to...

World's Worst iPod: El DeBarge "Who's Johnny"
A lot of people seemed to have fond memories of this questionable song from 1986. "Who's Johnny" was the first solo hit for the guy named El DeBarge, and it went to number 3 on the charts. Some of you might remember it from the movie "Short...

Finally, recognition of Stevie Ray Vaughan by the Rock Hall
The new list of nomines for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is out, and finally they give a nod to Stevie Ray Vaughan. The Rock Hall has passed Stevie by for the more than ten years that he's been eligible, causing me and other blues fans much...

You might want to see "Once" twice
I had the opportunity to go see "Once" at Overture Hall last night, and I guess the two word summary of my review could be "weirdly awesome." The story isn't too complicated, which is good because I sometimes had a hard time understanding the...

World's Worst iPod: Stonebolt "I Will Still Love You"
It seems Kitty was all alone in the Canadian wilderness with her love for the 1978 hit "I Will Still Love You" by Stonebolt. It only made it up to #29, so it seems a lot of folks didn't have the fond memories of the song that she did. With amazing...

World's Worst iPod: Neil Diamond "Yesterday's Songs"
Even Neil Diamond fans didn't seem to want to throw their support behind this one. "Yesterday's Songs" with its cheesy backup singers may be the most cliche song the guy does! It made it up to #11 on the charts in 1981/82 and was #1 on the...
