Old Friends Turn Out For Mindy McCready's Memorial
Nashville, Tenn. -- Mindy McCready's time in Nashville was filled with music, and her memorial service in Music City reflected that.

Old friends Bryan White, Lorrie Morgan and Bekka Bramlett sang for McCready and family members spoke about her difficulties and triumphs during the hour-long remembrance Wednesday at the Cathedral of the Incarnation.

"She achieved many of her dreams with No. 1 records and fame," said singer Lorrie Morgan, a former label mate of McCready's. "But we all know fame and fortune do not ensure happiness."

The Nashville memorial attended by about 200 comes two weeks after her funeral in her hometown of Fort Myers, Fla.

McCready shot herself last month on the front porch of the home she once shared with her fiance, David Wilson, in Heber Springs, Ark., authorities have said. That's the same spot where Wilson, the father of her second son, committed suicide a month earlier.

Authorities continue to investigate both deaths.

Bryan White and John Herman Explain How to Survive the Strange

Think you have what it takes to survive a zombie apocalypse with your tender, delicious brains intact? If not, Cinema Suicide creator Bryan White and filmmaker John Herman are here to assist you in your futile attempts at self-preservation. The talented duo’s highly entertaining web series “How to Survive the Strange” — hosted by none other than Bryan himself — is an unholy amalgamation of “This Old House” and every horror cliche you’re likely to encounter within the genre. In a good way, of course. The episodes are suitably short, smartly written, and, more importantly, impossibly entertaining. It helps matters considerably that Bryan’s a clever and funny guy; his delivery of the material is spot-on and damn-near brilliant, making repeat viewings a must. “How to Survive the Strange” unleashed its zombie-centric debut episode on May 17th, and can be easily accessed by taking a short trip to the show’s official website.

Idol Season 9: Top 5 -- Aaron Swings On Home

Idol Season 9: Top 5 -- Aaron Swings On Home
Results Night -- Tim Urban can have the cover of Tiger Beat. Aaron Kelly probably has his sights set on country music after saying goodbye to American Idol. In Sinatra week, Aaron sang "Fly Me To The Moon" and audiences sent him on permanent vacation from the show. He was in the bottom two with Michael Lynche and received the lowest amount of votes. Kelly will be on the Idol tour, finish high school (maybe) and then weigh the offers to become the next Bryan White. The show began with another dreaded group lip sync sing-along with the contestants keeping the mikes laughably high so they'd block their mouths and make the lip-syncing less obvious. Interestingly, the numbers they soloed on probably would have been better choices all around than the songs they sang on performance night. I did chuckle over...

Bryan White: Author of the “Body Count” column

Bryan White is a professional web developer by day and devoted fanatic of movies occupying the lower end of the cinema spectrum by night. His posh New England pad is located within walking distance of both a quarter mile drag strip and the county prison. A Saturday afternoon horror movie double feature on Uhf television and a chance encounter with Escape From New York sealed his fate as a disciple for life. To this day there are only three movies that he has been unable to endure: The Pest, Underworld and Freddy Got Fingered, a film that he is convinced is steeped in Andy Kaufman style irony. It's a maddening quest for discovery that may never be fulfilled. Bryan's spare time is often described as excessive and with this excessive spare time he manages Cinema Suicide [1], a blog dedicated to all things horror, cult and exploitation. Since 2007, Cinema Suicide has

Two Years of Sound On Sight

September marks the two year anniversary of Sound On Sight Radio. After 150 episodes we've reviewed an estimated 900 films and covered several film festivals, including our personal favorite, Fantasia. As well, we have had the chance to do press work for the Festival Nouveau Cinema, Toronto After Dark and most recently added to our list is the Toronto International Film Festival. It's safe to say that in the history of film review shows, S.O.S. is most likely the unluckiest of them all. From the first day we have had nothing but a string of bad luck. It started with a changeover in program directors over at Cjlo creating a miscommunication that resulted in Sound On Sight (than called The Naked Lunch) without an actual simeslot.We were than offered a slot on a different day but unfortunately my co-host-to-be (Dan Maxham) was not available at the time, thus leaving

Interview: José Mojica Marins & Dennison Ramalho

In 1964, while the rest of the world was watching Mary Poppins take school kids on acid trips, Brazil was thrilling to the exploits of Coffin Joe, a character mixing the best parts of Anton Lavey, Count Dracula, and a homeless old man. Considered Brazil’s first horror film, At Midnight I’ll Take Your Soul was followed by a sequel in 1967, with Tonight I’ll Possess Your Corpse, and Coffin Joe, a Satanic undertaker obsessed with finding the perfect woman to bear his seed, quickly became a cult favourite around the world. In 2008, creator/actor/director José Mojica Marins returned to the character with Embodiment of Evil (read Bryan White’s review here) [1]. Sound on Sight participated in a round table discussion with Marins on the subject of his most enduring creation. Please note that below is the the translated English version with Dennison Ramaho the writer of Embodiment of Evil.
