Rance Howard at Lindsey UNA Film Festival

I've directed Rance Howard.

Not like lots of well known Hollywood directors, among them his son, Ron, have, but I'll always say I've directed him nonetheless. I directed him to pose for this photo for posting on He was the nicest guy you'd ever meet. He would have said OK had I just been a fanboy without press credentials.

So, all you Rance Howard fanboys, don't be afraid to ask.

One blogging note: McDonald's claims to have free Wi-Fi access, but only allows you onto their access site, then you have to pony up to play. I jacked somebody's signal to post. Sorry, somebody. And one more reason for me to hate on McD's.

At the Lindsey UNA Film Festival

I'm crossing paths with Lynyrd Skynyrd and their Swampers this week; I drove right by Muscle Shoals Sound studios on my way to the film festival named and sponsored by George Lindsey, best known as Goober Pyle on "The Andy Griffith Show."

The festival is located in the Quad Cities in Northwest Alabama, and if you don't know your way around them the "not to scale" map they provide is a challenge.

Still, panel discussions and the films themselves are encouraging to any artist, including myself a writer/photographer/editor.
