- Dottie Rambo is now hawking her old clothes (i.e. “retired beaded dress”) in a contest built around the sale of her new book, Driving Ms. Dottie (hat tip, CVH). I typically get in a great deal of trouble for criticizing Rambo’s penchant for Do-Anything publicity stunts because of Rambo’s untouchable status as a gospel songwriter. But I’ve always thought the flea-market mawkishness of Rambo’s late years to be more than a little degrading to that writerly greatness. I could be wrong of course. I often am. But either way, it is difficult to watch as Rambo edges nearer and nearer what a friend of mine recently called a “Gloria Swanson phase from ‘Sunset Boulevard.’”

- From the department of right-wing intellectual enfeeblement comes word that the American Family Association can’t tell the difference between Daniel Mount or David Bruce Murray and a cult. I hafta admit that Mount’s obsession with the Inspirations has made me wonder if there isn’t some kind of special Martin Cook Kool-aid involved, but still … There really ought to be a museum or some sort of shrine to canonize the monumental stupidity born of the anti-intellectualism that passes for so much “values” thinking these days. That said, why would anyone expect to get an intellectually responsible content filter from a company whose product was endorsed by the ideologically overreaching likes of Chuck Swindoll and Michael Medved?
- Breaking news: KPNR finds audience that hasn’t heard “Four Days Late” every time the group has performed for the past five years. Much applause ensues. KPNR celebrates with a press release!
- The lighter side: Joseph Habedank loses 20 pounds and writes evidently good songs with great writers. So who’d like to produce the debut epsidoe of The Best SG Makeovers for INSP TV?
