Well children,
I finally sat down and watched Col. J.D. Wilkes "Seven Signs" last night. It's taken so long to find it, without buying it (because I'm poor). I missed it when it came to PDX, I think I had a gig or something.

Anyone else seen it? I personally like it better than "Searching For The Wrong-Eyed Jesus". It rang truer to me, the characters more life-like. "Searching..." seemed to focus on the darker, grotesque parts of the south and seemed to leave so much out. It was done by BBC through Jim Whites memories of his south. And anyone from the south knows, it's all their own southern perspective that rules them. There isn't ONE southern experience or perspective or definition.
