Re: “Arkansas playwright Qui Nguyen's latest earns Off Broadway raves

I can vouch for Mr. Nguyen being from El Dorado, and quite talented too.

Re: “Right-wing punk on parade

Too bad dueling is outlawed. I'd meet that jackass on the field of honor.

Re: “Ben Nichols releases solo vinyl at CD & Record Exchange

I wish he was still doing the Scientology/L Ron film. Also why not adapt The Crying of Lot 49? Inherent Vice isn't as good and any adaptation of a stoner detective fiction will be a poor cousin to Lebowski.

I think that Franco can pull off Blood Meridian. John Hillcoat, who directed The Road, wanted to do it, but couldn't get the rights and made the The Proposition instead, with help from scrivner/growler Nick Cave (who could probably do a great treatment for Blood Meridian). Ridley Scott said that the book couldn't/shouldn't be adapted, and he's in a long line of film makers who've taken a stab at the project. Franco is a polymath who likes the book for its language, and I think that his experience as a painter could make for an interesting movie. That being said, I suspect that the announcement was mostly talk, and won't get funded before he moves on to another project.

BTW I always thought musician Frank Black would make a good Judge.
