Johnny Depp rocks the house

Here's another article, but I have to wonder if the author may have mistaken Johnny's trusty old blue plaid shirt that he likes to tie around his waist for a kilt?

A Rock and a Hard Place DVD Pre-order information

Finally, we have some pre order info today about ordering, go here fpr pre-ordering: Click here: Pre-Order Information

Click here: THE SHEILA WITKIN FOUNDATION for information about the concerts and the DVD.

This is what their website says, in part, about the concert and highly anticipated documnetary DVD.

"On January 28, 2007, The Kids, Z-Cars, Critical Mass, Charlie Pickett, The Cichlids, Slyder, Tight Squeeze and special guests The Romantics took the stage at Club Cinema in Pompano Beach, Florida to the delight of nearly 3,000 fans that came from around the world to see their favorite bands play together one more time. The event culminated in South Florida’s biggest reunion concert. Nearly $30 thousand was raised for worthy charities, and it was one of the hottest concert tickets of the year.

The historic live event was captured on film for a feature-length documentary Rock and a Hard Place: Another Night at the Agora and is told by those who lived it. The film chronicles the remarkable true story of South Florida’s influential rock music scene by combining dozens of exclusive interviews, live performances by the bands, and vintage video, radio broadcasts and photographs.

For the very first time, this extraordinary untold story has been brought to the forefront and examines the compelling and often personal journey of eight original Miami bands and their quest to leave an indelible mark on the music they loved."

More thoughts on Rex Mundi's hunt for a director

Anne Thompson had this to say a couple of days ago in her "Variety" column about Johnny Depp and Rex Mundi. Be sure to go here Click here: Thompson On Hollywood to read her always insightful column.

"According to MTV, Johnny Depp is looking to find a director for "Rex Mundi" now that "Fight Club" scribe Jim Uhls has finished adapting Arvid Nelson's graphic novels. I don't know much about this project but any movie that keeps Depp out of a pirate costume is more than welcome in my book."
