Reminiscing

I was just thinking about ancient times, when we watched basketball in pyramids. The FedEx Forum is nice, of course, but don't you miss the Pyramid? It's so cool to have a building that doesn't match anything else in town.

Covering Cohn

This doesn't have anything to do with the Grizzlies, but it's sort of Memphis-y so it's close enough. My friend and I were talking the other day about concerts and theater tickets we've bought in the past, and it turned out we'd both seen Marc Cohn perform "Walking in Memphis" live.

We both love the song, but I hadn't realized how many other people do, too. Just check out all these artists on YouTube who have covered it. I know there are lots more, but here's a sampling:

Gavin DeGraw
Cher
Lonestar
this America's Got Talent dude

And of course the original, Marc Cohn

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right?
