Idea For Athfest

January 14, 2013

I have an idea for Athfest...

Each year have a special guest host (as famous and cool as possible) it could be a musician, band or other artist. They would be crowned the Queen or King of Athfest and be given the 'Athfest Key to the City', which would be a Gibson SG. At that point they would give a little lecture about their personal story pertaining to the arts and their own biography.
They would do a finale show for Athfest and/or a Classic Center performance (which would probably require a $5 charge in addition to the Athfest bracelet).

The point of all this is to put a crown on the event, that would get some national coverage.

South by Southwest had Springsteen do this routine last time, maybe we could get John Cougar Mellencamp!

Ideally the host would be a good sport and show up at some other events and announce, or even sit in with a few bands.

That would be fun.

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
