Fort Worth will no longer be the only major Texas city without its own film commission:

Up to now the Dallas Film Commission represented Fort Worth to movie, TV and video game producers.

Last weekend's Lone Star Film Festival seems to have hit a great mark, with well-known local artists Betty Buckley, Bill Paxton, and T-Bone Burnett in the spotlight as well as Brit Malcolm "Little Alex" McDowell. 

 

Wouldn't it be great if Burnett would consider fronting a club in downtown ("T-Bone's - Not the Steakhouse") where he could make occasional appearances with some of the many music makers he has collaborated with, and the long line of other music makers who would love to collaborate with him. Burnett has a wide range of song-writing ability, and maybe the rule for performers there is that each one would choose a T-Bone song to perform during their time on-stage. No need to look back at Caravan Days (sigh...) this could be a focus for looking into the future of music coming out of Fort Worth.

 

Come on T-Bone!

 

FYI his next project: http://www.star-tele...le44095488.html

It was a very interesting video.  Bob Ray Sanders looked so young, and Steve Murrin had dark hair.  Tandy Tower I was under construction and the CNB clock was still revolving.

Although Fort Worth is a very different city, a lot of what's in that video still applies.  It's still a big small city or a small big city.  It's a nice niche, really.

It was the first thing I read when I picked up my phone this morning.  Terrible news.  He's done a lot less high profile work in recent years, but he had a great run of big roles in some of the biggest popcorn flicks of the 90s, including one that was a best picture winner.

And he just started a new TV series that premiered month . That just makes it even more surreal.
