Movie Screening & Animal Rescue Fund

Dear Y'all,

A couple of weeks ago, the folks at Capricorn Pictures sent me a DVD of their new feature film, RANDY AND THE MOB, and asked me to watch it and tell ‘em what I thought.  What I thought was:  THIS IS HYSTERICAL!

It’s the creation of Academy Award Winner Ray McKinnon (he was the “bonafide suitor” in OH BROTHER WHERE ART THOU?)—and it stars McKinnon, plus Golden Globe Nominee Lisa Blount (she plays a baton teacher with carpal tunnel syndrome—bwahahahaha!) and Walton Goggins—that reeeally cute guy from THE SHIELD (you will definitely see HIM in a different light!) and the whole thing is just an utter dee-light from start to finish.

The official theatrical release isn’t until September—but for those Queens in the ATLANTA AREA—there is going to be a special “word-of-mouth” screening of RANDY AND THE MOB on MONDAY, 30 JULY at 7:30 pm, at the LANDMARK MIDTOWN ART CINEMA, 931 Monroe Drive.  IT’S FREE and all you have to do is RSVP in an e-mail to Mary Lugo: lugo@negia.net and let her know how many of y’all will be coming.  This is a great opportunity for a fabulously fun Queenly Outing—SO GO!

The movie was filmed in and around Atlanta, plus SOUTHERN filmmakers made it.  It won the Audience Choice Award at the Nashville Film Festival.  You will love it, I promise—you’ll have many nasal/cola experiences, so be prepared!

How’d you like you have “NEVER WEAR PANTIES TO A PARTY” or several other of our favorite songs as your ringtone?!  Our own Kacey Jones has made this possible—just one more reason we adore her!  Go to: www.kaceyjones.com to download them.  For Queens near Galveston, Texas, Kacey is performing in “Nipples to the Wind” this weekend, 27-29 July at The Grand Opera House—don’t miss this Musical!

Preparations for the BIG GIANT GARAGE SALE on 8/4 are continuing—through the heat and the monsoons—we are slaving.  (News will be coming soon about the treasures to be sold on e-BAY to benefit the ANIMAL RESCUE FUND, founded and laboriously and lovingly operated by our own Queen Pippa.)

DO NOT FORGET—due to the Big Giant Garage Sale—the website STORE WILL BE CLOSED FOR 2 WEEKS beginning 7/31.  This means—NO ORDERS WILL BE TAKEN AFTER 9 A.M. ON 7/30 and that will be your last chance for the SALE PRICES—and there will be zero tolerance for whining at 10 a.m. on the cut-off day, either!

Write to me anytime at hrhjill@sweetpotatoqueens.com —with funny stories, GOOD OBITUARIES, and/or Questions about Life Itsownself—I'm often wrong, but NEVER IN DOUBT!
