    ...if you haven't seen the movie, it is a hoot. Jack Black, Shirley MacLaine, Matthew McConaughey and the real townsfolk of Carthage were great in another gem from Richard Linklater. A dark comedy for sure, but it almost seems like a docu-comedy. An interesting look into small town Texas.

      That was a great film.

      All my friends in Houston were theatre and film types and musicians. My old friend Jonathan Caouette (if you haven't seen "Tarnation", you should) has a new film out as a matter of fact. He's a Texas filmmaker. Just got an email from him.

      I was the musical director for Infernal Bridegroom Productions in Houston for a number of years. The people who started that company, I went to high school with pretty much all of them.
