For those of you wondering how Kentucky will next be portrayed by Hollywood, here's the trailer for "Elizabethtown," Cameron Crowe's new flick starring Orlando Bloom and Kirsten Dunst. Release date: October 14

There's also a montage bit (to Elton John) with some Kentucky sights for you to identify, including a sign for Ear X-tacy in Louisville. PS: the movie was also shot in Versailles, among other places.

Looks like a typical kind of Cameron Crowe thing—comin' of age, findin' love 'n' growin' up. Not that there's anything wrong with that—See Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Say Anything, or Almost Famous much? I would also throw in roughly half of Jerry Maguire.

Actually—it usually seems that CC is great for about half of any given movie (excluding
Almost Famous). Take your pick.

Hey! I saw the sign! Ialso saw a Makers Mark Tee and an Ale 8 tee,too. After which Hap and I had a long discussion about whether any of them had to pay for product placement. We decided that Makers probably did...Ear Xtacy, probably not. Ale 8...we're not sure.
Also, I liked ALL those movies. Loved Fast Times....JM would've been just fine without that annoying Tom Cruise (who was a freak long before the TomKat thing happened...why everyone else is just now noticing is a mystery to me)

I went to see Iron and Wine last summer at Uncle Pleasants. There was a guy sitting at the bar and I couldn't stop looking at him. He looked SO much like Oscar Wilde! Spotting me he smiled politely and I looked away. But I kept looking back at him trying to decide if he would kick my ass if I told him of his doppleganger. I think I freaked him out by staring-- I hadn't enough beers to approach him. Thank god cuz it was Cameron Crowe! This is what happens when you don't have TV and don't go to the movies! But I will go see this one...
