Megan Joy Is Sparking Filmmakers’ Interest
by ladybugg on October 15, 2009

Though she made her mark on the world’s most-watched singing competition, American Idol’s Megan Joy may not be headed for the recording studio, but rather the silver screen.

The sultry, single mom with the sexy voice caught everyone’s attention during Idol’s eighth season. Immediately after her departure from the show, the internet was ablaze with the rumor that Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks had noticed Megan and wanted to anoint her to play her part in an upcoming biopic about the supergroup. (Nicks, the week before, made her thoughts crystal clear on Lindsay Lohan’s interest in the role. “Over my dead body,” the one-time queen of rock said of Lohan’s possible involvement.)

Stevie Nicks, though, isn’t the only one who has noticed Megan Joy. “From what I’ve seen, Megan doesn’t have a bad angle,” says Phoenix, Arizona indie filmmaker Jane Bell. “We’d love to work with her. I’d go so far as to say we would develop a project with her in mind. She’s stunning.”

“It’s funny. I’d never watched Idol until this season,” Bell said. “A friend called me and said ‘you’ve got to see this girl.’ As soon as we began watching her, we were hooked. So many possibilities there.”

Regarding Megan’s sleeve tattoo, Bell responded, ”To get her going in something like a festival short, we’d write the tattoo into the story, just to get her in a film, so she could get her acting feet wet. She simply has too much presence, almost a Grace Kelly kind of thing. You can’t help but gape at her.”

“We’ve tried to contact Megan,” Bell continued, “through one of her fan websites that stated they had a direct line to her, but to no avail. I know she has a myspace now. So we’ll wait until she’s off the tour, and depending on what happens with the Fleetwood Mac thing, we’ll try to get together with her in the fall. But, who knows, we might be competing with Cover Girl and L’Oreal, she’s that good-looking.”

Default I don't know what the eff this is all about...

Interview Project by David Lynch is an online series of interviews with Americans from different walks of life, in various towns and cities all over America. Beginning October 20, the project will launch a community blog, incorporating Facebook, YouTube and Twitter, so fans will be able to upload their own original content.

Austin Lynch (David’s son) and a friend set out on a roadtrip across America and back to get the people’s story from everyday Americans. They covered 20,000 miles in 70 days and got stories that are notable for the fact they are real, organic and unrehearsed. Production wise, they have the unmistakable Lynch feel, you keep looking for something that may be hidden. I watched 4 of the interviews and enjoyed spotting the Lynch symbols – close ups of flowers, bird chirps, etc. It will be fun to get to see how the conversations flow once the blog opens up a richer dialogue.

The blog launch will coincide with the premiere of the Clinton interview, a Fayetteville, WV man who finds salvation through a Stevie Nicks concert. For laughs, check out Lynch below NSFW (language) talking about watching movies on iPhones.

Best Earthquake Stories
\
Earthquake stories are like first love stories: Everyone's got one, but they always tend to be interesting anyway.

What were you doing at 5:04 pm 20 years ago?

I was just out of the shower, in my underwear, and seconds later I was climbing down the fire escape of my building. I was getting ready to go to a Stevie Nicks concert at either Shoreline or Concord -- Concord, I think -- and kept thinking I still had to go.

I walked outside, past a lady who was, I guess, about 60 -- a full generation older -- and we just looked at each other and started laughing. It was a moment that brought everybody together, because in those moments everybody, absolutely everybody, was thinking about the exact same thing.

You got an earthquake story? Is yours any good? So-so? Let's hear it.

Default Country singer Peck sings in front of hometown crowd

October 18, 2009

The former Coshocton County resident filled up Secrest Auditorium and sung hits like "Findin' A Good Man," "Isn't That Everything" and "I Don't," that made her a star.

The last time Peck, a River View High School graduate, was last home was Christmas, but she hasn't performed anywhere around Coshocton since she was a teenager playing bars, festivals and fairs.

Coming back into town brought back memories for Peck, 31, who now spends most of her time recording in Nashville and on tour.

"I went to the (Colony Square) mall and it brought back memories," Peck said. "That's where I got my ears pierced. And we went past Adornetto's where I went on my first date when I was 16. And I remember going to see "Titanic" when it first came out over here. Zanesville's been a pretty big part of my life. It's where we would come to go shopping, out to eat, do everything."

Her performance included cover tracks like Stevie Nicks' "Landslide" and Tom Petty's "Won't Back Down."

"All my family is here," Peck said. "I'm going to spend a day or two in Coshocton and everyone else is going back (to Nashville). The bus is leaving me."

Stevie Nicks!

"Stevie Nicks!" Shouted a forth grade boy to another forth grade boy.
"I'm not Stevie Nicks, you are!" Said the other boy.
"Why are you calling each other Stevie Nicks?" I asked.
"Because he sounds like Stevie Nicks." Said the boy.
"She 'Stevie Nicks' has a good voice." I said.
"Stevie Nicks is a girl?" Asked a student.
"Hahahaha you sound like a girl." Said the boy.

Stevie Nicks
By Signe Kassowon October 21, 2009in Featured and People.
0Has been considered as the The Reigning Queen of Rock and Roll by The Rolling Stone Magazine and The ultimate flower-child/rock-fairy by Hilary Alexander. With the comeback of Fleetwood Mac follows the style-icon Stevie Nicks. And it seems like she’s already influenced designers like John Galliano’s Autumn/Winter 09-10 collection with her medieval look.

Scary songs
Oct 24th, 2009 | By Ian Poulton | Category: Personal Columns

Watching Stevie Nicks sing Rhiannon on a 1976 recording, an old insecurity resurfaced: the sense that there was a sophisticated and streetwise world out there that was forever beyond the understanding of a hickey kid from nowhere. The insecurity even got a name a few years ago, in our house, it became called ‘Midnight Train to Georgia Syndrome’.

The great soul singer, Gladys Knight sang Midnight Train to Georgia in 1973, it made it to No 1 in the US charts. It told of a man who had gone to Los Angeles in search of fame and fortune, but his dreams hadn’t come true and he was returning to the rural life of the Deep South from which he had come. The opening lines of the song go like this:

L.A. proved too much for the man
So he’s leavin’ the life he’s come to know
He said he’s goin’ back to find what’s left of his world
The world he left behind not so long ago
He’s leavin’ on that midnight train to Georgia
Said he’s goin’ back to find the simpler place and time.


Stevie Nicks became emblematic of a world that was too much for a teenager who struggled to understand the culture beyond his native West Country. In a year dropped out of college, a Fleetwood Mac album that has long since disappeared was played again and again on an old mono record player left by housemates who had gone to India. The side on which Rhiannon appeared must have been nearly worn away by the heavy stylus’ repeated circuits of the vinyl. It wasn’t even the lyrics, the song could have been sung in a foreign language and it would have made no difference, it was the sound of the guitars and Nicks’ voice that combined to become eerily haunting.

Haunting things are a problem, they defy articulation, they defy definition. If it was possible to explain why certain things evoked certain thoughts, then they would lose their power. The opening bars of the song hit the pit of the stomach; in the way that some anthems can make the hairs on the back of one’s neck stand on end, so some songs seem to have a physical quality about them.

Perhaps an analyst would suggest some deep unresolved problem, not that one would talk to a doctor about 1970s music, but there was a sudden impulse to find Gladys Knight, to escape whatever dark shadows there are in the winding corridors of the subconscious.

Maybe it would be better to go to the toilets when they do that song at the concert tonight.

Nostalgia is not always good for you.

Things Learned About Stevie Nicks After Visiting Her Official Website
By Jess McGuire on October 26, 2009 at 1:07 PM

Don’t think that I’ve calmed down when it comes to my Stevie Nicks obsession just because I’ve travelled half-way around world and can’t stop listening to Miike Snow repeatedly, oh no. I still plan on making Stevie adopt me when she comes to Australia, and my new life goal is to organise a successful Fleetwood Mac tribute night (an aside: Darren Hayes, The Drones, Kylie Minogue, Eddy Current Suppression Ring – get in touch!)

I thought I’d go and frolic through Stevie’s official website, and look what I found – an ‘Ask Stevie’ section! The most recent question answered is in regards to Sheryl Crow’s breast cancer diagnosis which makes me think it may not be the most up to date list of Nicks-answered queries, but whatever. I have perused the 145 questions and answers, and here are some things I happened to learn about the divine Miss N.

STEVIE HAS A WINNING SPIRIT!
When asked what she thought got her through the difficult times, Stevie answered “I don’t like to lose, and that winning spirit has taken me thru most of my difficult times.” Top that, Anthony Robbins. Also, it’s interesting to note that Stevie spells “through” as “thru”. I am considering adopting this spelling as a tribute to her even though in the past it’s something that has made me feel a bit punchy.

STEVIE LOVES TO SLOW DANCE!
Says Stevie “I like to slow dance whenever possible, I even slow dance by myself during my solo shows!” I am considering taking up solo slow dancing as a tribute to her even though in the past it’s something that has made me feel a bit like a dick.

STEVIE FINDS AMERICAN IDOL HILARIOUS!
Stevie admits “I do watch it sometimes, I think it’s very funny, and if I was a judge I would be Simon Cowell!

GOODY STEVIE THINKS MYSPAZZ IS THE DEVIL!
“I think they are evil. Seriously, I think myspace.com has the potential to be a very dangerous site.” I am considering deleting my MySpazz page as a tribute to her even though in the past it’s something that has led to really **** bands I don’t care about thoughtfully wishing me a happy birthday on the 7th March.

STEVIE’S TASTE IN TELLY AND MUSIC IS KINDA WORRYING!
Her favourite television show is Judging Amy and her favourite band is Maroon 5. I think I can deal with that. After all, she’s Stevie ****ing Nicks, she can watch and listen to whatever she damn well likes.

STEVIE WOULD BE A VERY GOOD BEAUTY PAGEANT CONTESTANT!
“If I had one wish, it would be for world peace….” reveals Stevie. I am considering cancelling my Al Quaeda membership even though in the past it’s something that has ensured I have a place to crash whenever I visit Afghanistan.

Stevie Nicks, I love you more than ever.

Oct 30, 2009 | By: DYANA BAGBY

Michael Montlack loved Stevie Nicks as a gay icon long before she became an international hero to millions of gay men, including drag queens who love the scarves and the long skirts that are her signature style.

In his anthology, “My Diva,” Montlack writes about how he connected to Nicks as a gay boy seeking his true identity and how she is his “diva” — just one of 65 in the book of essays where other gay men describe their diva inspirations.

“She was like my fairy godmother,” said Montlack, professor of English at Berkeley College in New York City. “I could escape through her. She taught me how to veil myself.”

As a gay boy and a young man coming out, Montlack was not interested in musicals, for example, like other gay men. But through the lyrics, voice and style of rocker Stevie Nicks, he was able to find a connection that shaped him into the gay man he is today.

His interest in Nicks led him years ago to write a poem about her, which eventually led to an essay. Encouragement from a friend to get it published — which it was — made him realize there was a market for gay men to express their love for certain women who inspired them.

“My Diva,” which includes divas from Sappho to Princess Leia, is featured at this year’s third annual Atlanta Queer Literary Festival, slated for Nov. 4-7. A reading from the book including Montlack and other contributors is set for Nov. 5 at Outwrite Bookstore & Coffeehouse.

“When I came out, who knew she would become a gay icon,” Montlack said of Nicks.

“When I was young, I felt like I took a lot of heat because I didn’t like musicals … and I was always defending myself for liking Stevie Nicks. Now there’s the famous ‘Night of 1,000 Stevies,’” he added with a laugh.

[This guy was captivated by the same Wild Heart footage that so many here love]

From an article on Sin Fan Bous

http://www.straight.com/article-2664...rules-clangour

Sin Fang Bous’s aesthetic is arguably similar to that of some of Beck Hansen’s work. Sigfússon says he’s a big fan of Beck’s Sea Change, but what’s really inspiring him these days is Fleetwood Mac, and some of Stevie Nicks’s solo work. “I was, like, obsessed with one thing I saw on the Internet, which was a recording of Stevie Nicks rehearsing a song called ‘Wild Heart’,” he says. “I saw it on YouTube. She’s backstage, getting her makeup done or something, and they’re playing this demo track and she’s singing along to it. I thought it sounded really cool.”

So much so, in fact, that Sigfússon plans to record his own version of the song, and he also has covers of Fleetwood Mac’s “Beautiful Child” and “Landslide” in the works. Of course, he has plenty of his own videos up on YouTube. And who knows—maybe Nicks will watch one and return the compliment.

Q. What music is currently on your iPod? Which musicians inspired you?

Oksana Grigorieva:
There was a composer, Alexander Scriabin… and a piece called The Poem of Ecstasy (Le Poème de l’extase). It’s a symphony piece and I think it’s so beautiful. He was kind of overshadowed by Sergei Rachmaninoff, who lived at the same time. And he died at the age of 43, from septicemia. He shaved a pimple and a few months later he was gone. It was so terrible. But I just love his music.

I really like Rachmaninoff: Symphony No. 3, The Rock. It’s one of my favourite pieces of all time. But that’s classical again. I also love Joni Mitchell, Peter Gabriel, Kate Bush and Elton John. I love Elton John. Stevie Nicks’ voice is so striking as well.
