–One last note on the Randi and Evi Quaid mess occurring here in Marfa… it looks as if someone has attacked the famous sign with fire. To paraphrase Jim Morrison: “weird scenes in the gold mine”.
I am not going to comment or speculate too much on this. However, the rest of the Internet has. Click here to see dozens of news articles on this subject. Initially, I heard that the Big Bend Sentinel and Alpine Avalanche chose not to cover this story. However, both of these fine journals ended up featuring coverage that extensively cribbed from TMZ.com.

–I shot and edited this video for the Stormhoek wine label. It’s location is the Terlingua Trading Company porch there at the Terlingua Ghosttown. A big thank you to Hugh MacLeod and Jeffro Cowell. Uh-Clem (both infamous and famous) discusses flashlights and Jeff plays some ukelele.
