...once you have enough money, you can do anything you want and people will crawl over each other to throw more money at you...

even if it's some weird, weird shiat.

Can't watch the videos right now... but I have the Ghost Brothers of Darkland County CD. It's got some good damn songs on it, honestly:

I actually saw the play in Indy a few weeks ago and thought it was really well done and interesting.

I am scared just thinking about it.

On a related note, has anyone read Doctor Sleep? I'm like 100 pages into it and just not feeling it right now.

It's OK, but it's like a lot of his recent stuff.  I'm not sorry I read it, but he's lost his bloodlust, and never really goes for the throat anymore.  What I wouldn't give for him to rediscover blow for just one year.

My grandpa and his girlfriend saw it and he wasn't sure what to make of it. His GF *hated* all the swearing, and he thought it was pretty weird, not in a good way.

I'd reserve judgment since I haven't seen it and no Hoosier can defame Mellencamp without firsthand knowledge of something like this. However I doubt it will still be at the Murat when I get back to Indy and have some time to go see it. Thanksgiving weekend is hunting weekend in my family.

right up there with Born in the USA.

as for this play, I remember reading about this collaboration in a newspaper. that had to have been back in '97-'99? (which was probably the last time I was actively reading newspapers.

I always wondered what became of that strange story.

I've heard good things about it.  A friend of mine saw it here in Atlanta and said if you like scary/horror type movies, you probably would like it.

Agreed. His writing was better when he was coked out of his twisted mind

I saw it in Atlanta about a year or so ago when it had it's first run and enjoyed it a lot.
It was a bit weird, but quite enjoyable.

Mark me down for the 'Mellencamp hating' team...

Some musicians are only as good as the other musicians playing for them. Ozzy comes to mind as well.

I am a Bloomington Indiana native, so I am a bit biased against him... saturation and all.
