My pal, Colonel
JD Wilkes of Th'Legendary ShackShakers had the world
premiere for his documentary, Seven Signs, tonight here in
The documentary is an excellent overview of southern
eccentricity. I highly recommend it so if it comes to a
theater near you, check it out.
At one point, there was a midway shot and I thought, 'I know
that banner line.' Sure enough, the next thing I knew, the
girls and I were looking at a giant, movie screen sized face
of John Strong in all his midway glory, pontificating to
beat the band. I have to admit, John. You did a mighty fine
job. He even does some fire eating/breathing and has a stage
full of feminine pulchritude in the form of the Panty Raid
Burlesque Troupe. There were short interviews with Parris,
John Hiner and a whole lot of John Strong. My pal, JD,
did a really nice and respectful job of presenting the side
show and John did a great job himself.
Overall, a very
impressive film ............
