Looking To Own A Rather Large Piece Of Walking Dead Memorabilia?

Grantville1

(PCM) Fans of AMC’s hit TV series that just so happen to have a spare $680,000 can hop on over to Ebay to place their bids on the historic town of Grantville, Georgia which is currently up for sale. The town in located approximately 35 miles outside of Atlanta.

The town was heavily featured during season three of “The Walking Dead” and has also been the set of several other films such as “Lawless” and “Dumb and Dumber To”.  Television and film studios are attracted to the town’s rustic and old-fashioned feel and there are even four additional films that are currently in the works. It has great historic appeal, as most of the buildings were built back in the 1880’s and there is even a railroad that runs right through the heart of town.

Jim Sells, the former mayor of Grantville says that he would love a movie studio or commercial developer to purchase the town. The current price is only asking approximately $30 per square inch and much of it has already been renovated.

It is also Sell’s hope that many of the buildings can be turned in to loft apartments, retail spaces, restaurants and more. Revenue is also earned from the “Walking Dead” tours that take place in the town, as well as, residuals on recent and upcoming film projects.

Thus far there have been no bids on town, but there are 885 people currently watching the auction.

Super Bowl 49 Boring Until the Last Minute

Malcolm-Butler-int(PCM) Fans and analysts will debate the play call that cost the Seahawks their back-to-back Super Bowl wins, and few will remember the name Malcolm Butler in months to come, but can anyone honestly say this was a Super Bowl?

malcolm-butlerThe final score of 28-24 in favor of the Patriots over the Seahawks may appear to have the earmarks of a great and close scoring game but in truth it was not.

jearmaine-kearse-receptionUp until late in the fourth quarter with Jermaine Kearse making a circus catch on his back, there were no truly exciting plays. No huge interceptions run back, no fumbles or sacks that stopped drives. Outside of Tom Brady’s first drive first quarter interception in the endzone, each scoring drive by both teams held no excitement.

A fan of either team will argue this but the logical counter is those fans are fans. They are bias. The final score could have been 7-0 and it would have been an awesome game by any fan that roots on either team.

No, the truth is Super Bowl 49 sucked. It was boring. It was slow and the commercials were just as boring. Sure one or two were cute, from Budweiser’s contrived heart string puppy commercial that easily manipulated the female audience near tears, to Liam Neeson’s phone app video game rage in character of his Bryan Mills Taken persona. Beyond those efforts, anyone that felt the game or commercials were memorable is hard up for a good time.

The only good thing about Super Bowl 49 is that a debate of why the Seahawks passed on the 1 yard line when they have a league franchise player Marshawn Lynch that could run the ball in backwards with ease.

But isn’t that end game controversy all that is necessary for the public to forget how slow and boring this game was and elevate it to a great Super Bowl?

Be honest if you watched this game.  It was boring and 2 minutes of excitement can hardly make up for almost 3 hours of dull.

In defense of the NFL and the Super Bowl, you can’t script a good game. Good and great games take place mysteriously. Serendipitously. Super Bowl 49 was not one of them.

Marshawn Lynch is Missing The Super Bowl

marshawn-lynch-crotch-grab(PCM) Seattle Seahawks franchise back Marshawn Lynch doesn’t like the press. Other famous players have also hated the press. Some recall Hall of Fame left handed pitcher Steve Carlton of the Philadelphia Phillies refused any contact with the press for years in the clubhouse. For the record, Carlton didn’t have the same rules as players today, he was able to genuinely avoid the press. Marshawn Lynch cannot.

Players have every right to dislike press. After all, media in general operates in a cycle, make someone a star, then tear them down. Build them up again. The cycle can repeat over and over because newsworthy people are either a celebrity on the rise, or a celebrity on the decline.

Marshawn Lynch is aware of that. While many call his required press time antics genius, there is something sad to be said for Marshawn. It’s the life experience of where he is in life. Most recently, he’s missing the Super Bowl. Of course he’s not going to physically miss out, and yes he is playing too. Yet most people never get to experience popularity, popular events or notable achievement.

Marshawn Lynch is missing the Super Bowl experience. Sure he has a right to privacy. Reaching superstar heights in the NFL seems to obviously force you into the spotlight. Why not enjoy it? There is no doubt Marshawn’s current position makes it clear he’s not happy. And that is sad.

marshawn-lynch-crotch-grab-cardinalsHe’s not a bad person, he’s avoided that image despite his crotch grabbing in the endzone slights. When some sly reporters have asked him about his charity work, he’s broken from his pat “I’m just here so I won’t get fined.” routine to instruct reporters to come to those events and he’ll talk about those causes.

Marshawn isn’t a fool, but he is a clown. Much of his street laden talk shows he’s a humble man that may have social anxiety issues, and if that is true he would do well to expose that openly and he’ll get less and less reporters coming at him forcing him to do his blank stare and no answer routine. Until his clears this up, he’s making himself look somewhat the fool. It’s hard to argue that he’s not.

Marshawn is no genius. He’s a football player that’s as much known for his behavior towards the press as he is for performing off the field. When he’s not longer a player, his in jeopardy of his press behavior legacy overshadowing his on field accomplishments.

marshawn-lynch-super-bowlMarshawn Lynch is missing the Super Bowl. Instead of spending this week bonding with fans through the press, he’s angry in his isolation. Yes, he has family that loves him and knows him for who he really is. That is not the point. The point is the Super Bowl experience is something few ever come in contact with.  Marshawn Lynch may appreciate his accomplishment of making it to the Super Bowl and perhaps winning it too, but years from now he’ll understand that he enjoyed much less than he could have. He’ll wish he could step back in time and do it differently.

Marshawn understands the media. He knows he can’t control what others write, and he may even fear it a bit, which is why he won’t speak to them. He feels the less he gives them, the less they can change, get wrong or worse. What Marshawn doesn’t understand is the media will going to write things regardless. He’s a celebrity, like it or not. Why not enjoy it instead of fight it, as he may never reach a Super Bowl again.

Performer And Poet Rod McKuen Dead At Age 81

Rob-McKuen1

(PCM) One of the history’s best selling poets, the Oscar nominated Rod McKuen has sadly passed away at the age of 81.

McKuen died while at a rehabilitation center in Beverly Hills, California where he was being treated for a bout of pneumonia. McKuen had been hospitalized with the illness for several weeks and was unable to digest any foods.

McKuen pretty much stepped out of the limelight back in 1981, however prior to then he had released hundreds of poems, songs and records throughout his career. He was nominated for an Oscar for the song “Jean” from the 1969 film “The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie”.

Many people throughout the years were absolutely captivated by McKuen’s work and his material was recorded by various celebrities over the years including Frank Sinatra, Madonna and Dolly Parton to name a few. He, himself, with his incredible signature voice recorded over 200 albums and has released at least 30 books of poetry.

Majority if McKuen’s best known work was released in the late 1960’s and he was able to write in a style that was easily accessible to everyone. During the height of his career he would sometimes write at least one song or poem per day and he had absolutely no literary or musical training.

McKuen made several appearances on The Late Show with Johnny Carson and also formed a production company with Rock Hudson. He was constantly on the road as well until taking a much needed break back in 1981.

Some of his most quoted phrases are “Listen to the warm” and “It doesn’t matter who you love, or how you love, but that you love.” Many of his books are now out of print, however he still continued to churn out new poetry and also did some voice-over work for Disney in his later years.

Our sincere condolences go out to the the family and friends of Rod McKuen during this incredibly difficult time.
