Muscle Shoals Sound Documentary


A Ken Burns style hyper-in-depth documentary on that Muscle Shoals Sound. Currently in production.

The lead director of the doc is Paul Justman.

Film to showcase local music - Times Daily | Florence, AL:

"Paul Zamek, one of the film's producers, said the Muscle Shoals sound is original because it crosses so many genres. Justman said it's easy to understand why larger cities such as Nashville, Detroit and Chicago developed a great regional sound. But songs created here were covered by the huge names such as the Stones and the Beatles.

'For a small town like Muscle Shoals to be a significant, important, regional sound - why?' Justman said. 'Because these kids became inspired.'"


Nothing to see here, folks. Move along.

Its not like your votes are being erased or anything... wait....

Hey look, Brittany Spears is running around in her underwear! John Edwards got a 300 dollar haircut, too! Oh look again! Strawmen!!! Smoke and Mirrors!!!!

I'm so, like, shocked and, like, awed. Riiight?


In Violation of Federal Law, Ohio's 2004 Presidential Election Records Are Destroyed or Missing:
"'The missing records reveal where the fraud occurred,' said Arnebeck. 'You take as an example, Warren County. It is well documented that there was a phony homeland security alert and that was the excuse for excluding the public and the press from observing what was going on during Election Day. So the missing unused ballots would suggest that ballots were remade to fit the desired result.'

'The same situation occurred in Clermont County,' he said. 'We have sworn affidavits from people who saw white stickers placed over the Kerry-Edward ovals in this optical scan county,' he said, referring to one way of masking a would-be Kerry vote, because optical-scan machines read ink marks on paper ballots. 'So the missing unused ballots would suggest they were used to remake ballots to reflect the desired vote for Bush.'"

Awful. They offed him themselves then tried to turn him into a Toby Keith song.

Sick bastards.

Waxman Questions Army Candor on Tillman:

"Unanswered questions about the bungled response to Army Ranger Pat Tillman's friendly-fire death in Afghanistan reach into the highest ranks of the Pentagon and beyond, a key Democrat charged Wednesday.

Ex-Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld watched from the witness table, hands clasped, shoulder-to-shoulder with other high-ranking former Pentagon officials, as Rep. Henry Waxman, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, opened a hearing on the issue.

'The concealment of Corp. Tillman's fratricide caused millions of Americans to question the integrity of our government, yet no one will tell us when and how the White House learned the truth,' said Waxman, D-Calif."

Wheeew. I'm glad they cleared that up.

Why People Have Sex: It Feels Good:

"After exhaustively compiling a list of the 237 reasons why people have sex, researchers found that young men and women get intimate for mostly the same motivations. It's more about lust in the body than a love connection in the heart."

All that sex is made me hungry.

Betty riffs on a picnic favorite:

"Betty's riff on the picnic favorite is easy to make at home. All the fixings - chicken breasts, buttermilk, cabbage, jalapenos - are available at the supermarket, and working with a chicken breast is perfect for nervous cooks who want to give deep-frying a go."
