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: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
