I was listening to Robert Earl Keen’s The Road Goes On Forever again today and it got me thinking. We have had several songs become full length movies in the past.

I’m talking in the vain of Ode To Billy Joe, Harper Valley PTA, Alice’s Restaurant, Convoy, etc. Also, I still need to see The Indian Runner, based on Highway Patrolman. The Road Goes On Forever would make my list, of course. I have previously discussed with a few the need for a movie … Continue reading Songs You Would Like To See Become Movies

When I bought my house in 2010, it came with a very small yard. It takes about 15 minutes to mow. So, my Pops gave me a free, used mower he had around still. And for nine years, it … Continue reading With All Due Apologies To Jeff Lahey…
