I’m not going to lie to you. It’s been a pretty boring week for gossip. Sure, there were tales of girls going wild after having too much Champagne, but that’s not really gossip, that’s just expected – and encouraged! And, of course, there was talk of the great white shark sighting in Orange Beach, but, I mean, you know sharks kind of live in water, so is this really news to anyone?
I know, I know. You are like, “It’s your job to find us tasty tidbits!” Don’t worry, I have found some things for you to nibble on. But you’ll probably just be hungry again in a few hours. But hey, intermittent gossip fasting is all the rage right now, so you’re welcome!
So dig on in, but just eat slowly! It will last longer!
TRUCKIN’ WITH JAMELL RICHARDSON
Everyone loves the “Gulf Coast Blues Boy” Jamell “Melly Mel” Rich- ardson. He has been a favorite around here for quite some time now, thrilling blues lovers with his passionate delivery, incredible voice and guitar skills.
This talent has landed him on quite a few big stages with big names like Al Green. His star power drew in another music bigwig last week in Mississippi. As he was playing at a bar in Jackson, none other than Duane Trucks sat in with him and sang the Bobby Blue Bland classic “Stormy Monday Blues.” You can see their performance on Jamell’s Facebook page and you can see Jamell in person this Friday night at The Brickyard on Dauphin Street. Check him out!
BEST TAG EVER
I have never really been a fan of vanity plates. It probably has something to do with that old game show “Bumper Stumpers” that my grand- mother forced me to watch. But occasionally I see one that’s just perfect. A spy recently caught a car on Airport Boulevard that read, “ILCUT U.”
Well done, well done! Bonus points if the owner of this vehicle is a sur- geon, hairdresser, chef or seamstress.
Well kids, that’s all I got this week. I promise to be back with more next issue. Be nice to all of the dads out there. And trust me, they would much rather have a boat than a tie or socks, so I say go big or go home for your daddy! And just remember, whether rain or shine, dramatic or scandal- ous, or just some plain ol’ Melly Mel lovin’, I will be there. Ciao!
