September 12, 2007 Bonus Blog
Shifting gears now to get ready for the next issue which will be on Jesse James. I'm doing the Wood Hite vs. Dick Liddil gunfight. Aren't those names great? Mark Boardman has been scoring me some excellent source materials. Apparently, the new movie The Assasination of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford features this fight. Lots of good buzz on the movie which is coming out in the next three weeks. Curious why it has been delayed by a year. The good news is that since it's coming out on the tail of 3:10 to Yuma, the media is all over it (The Return Of The Western?). Interestingly, they are including No Country For Old Men which is a modern Western, as part of this wave. But, none the less, the trio is being perceived as somehow planned, when these projects have been bouncing around in development for three or more years. Coincidence has more to do with the timing than anything, but we really shouldn't be looking a gift horse in the mouth.

Meanwhile, my Zane Bro Pard, Wonderful Russ has been interviewed by one of the former members of The Meat Puppets. Interesting interview about Phoenix free-form radio in the 1970s. There is a painful episode discussed that involves me, regarding National Lampoon and a certain writer and editor. Russ tells it very fair. Still makes me cringe though. Here's the link:
