Chad: I Survived the Titanic!

The biggest film of 1997 is hitting theatres again today.  And this time, Titanic will be shown in 3D.  I wasn't necessarily interested in the seeing the movie again.  I liked it an all the first time, but I don't normally devote 3 hours and 17 minutes to the same thing twice.  But, recently, after visiting Titanic Pigeon Forge, I completely changed my tune.  After boarding the Titanic and experiencing its wonder myself, I can't wait to step into the theatre and relive one of the greatest tragedies of modern times.  Titanic may have hit an iceberg and sunk in the early morning hours of April 15th, 1912, but the ship, her spirit and the memory of her passengers are alive and well.  And, I want to take time to honor one of them here at WBKR.com.  His name is Alfred Pugh.  And, when I visited Titanic a couple of weeks ago, I came to know Alfred very well.

Evansville and Surrounding Area Movie Times – Here’s How to Find Them

When I was a kid growing up, we didn’t go see too many movies as a family. I remember going to Robin Hood – Prince of Thieves with my best friend Patrick (and it got a little mushy which was kind of uncomfortable for two very platonic boy/girl companions) and Wild Hearts Can’t Be Broken with my mom. Now, my husband and I have a standing

Titanic 3D Sails Into Theaters April 4th [VIDEO]

When Titanic first came out in 1997 my oldest boy was 4 years old and now he's 18 and will be able to take his girlfriend to see it on the big screen. I went to the movie theater two times to watch it back then and when it comes back to the big screen in 2012, I'm sure I'll go see it again probably two more times. Something about the history of  learning about the luxury liner and the story line is captivating.

April 15th, 2012 marks the 100th Anniversary of that tragic event. If you get a chance and are fascinated with the history of the Titanic like I am, be sure to check out the Titanic Exhibit in Pigeon Forge, TN.  it was surely something to see! So get ready for Titanic April 4th as it sails into a theater near you in 3D!

Does Truvy’s “Cuppa Cuppa Cuppa” Recipe from Steel Magnolias Work?

Yes, I know.  This is a completely random question.  And, yes!  I know.  It's SO twenty-three years ago.   Do you remember the movie Steel Magnolias?  I'm sure you do.  Dolly Parton played a hairdresser named Truvy and, at a certain point in the film, she gets asked about one of her famous recipes.  That recipe is called Cuppa Cuppa CuppaOlympia Dukakis' character, Clairee, wants Truvy to give her the recipe and Truvy says, "You don't need a recipe.  It's just a cup of flour, a cup of sugar and a cup of fruit cocktail with the syrup.  Stir and bake in a hot oven until golden brown and bubbly."  So, Thursday morning on the WBKR Waking Crew, Nashville Kat, Moon and I wondered . . . does this REALLY work?

Bullying Needs To Stop!!! [VIDEO]

I just saw the trailer from the documentary movie "Bully" unfortunately that's how it is in schools across the country and has happened to many many households, even in mine. Because of bullying I've watched my son feel bad about himself , keep to himself and overall just feel sad a lot. And if you're a concerned parent like I am please talk with your children if you see a drop in grades or your child doesn't act happy like they once did, something needs to be done!

Bullying is a very serious situation, the stats show that 13 million kids will be bullied in the U.S. this year, even deaths has been caused over bullying that number need to go down to ZERO! This new movie coming out has received an "R" rating so that means a lot of young kids who need to see it won't because of the "R" rating. I don't think it's right, do you?!?

Taylor Swift Performs Second “The Hunger Games” Song In New Zealand

It's apparent Taylor Swift is going in a bold new direction with her contributions to the upcoming The Hunger Games: Songs from District 12 and Beyond soundtrack. If you heard her collaboration with The Civil Wars, "Safe and Sound" and though, eh, maybe a little too weird, then I think "Eyes Open" will improve your attitude.

Owensboro on Youtube: River City Festival of Films Recap

Okay, so I'm a huge fan of Youtube. It's a quick fix for boredom. When, or if, I run out of things to do, watch, listen to, whatever, there's always Youtube. So, the other day while Youtubing, I just searched "Owensboro" and hit the jackpot. And then I thought, "I have a forum. Why not spotlight the occasional Owensboro-related Youtube video?" Answer: no reason.

I was watching "Back to the Future" this past weekend and I was telling my wife that I like three movies in that series of movies!

For a time back in the early 80s, it seemed like Dolly Parton was going to be the next big movie star. It felt like she was in everything. But, then again, everything "Dolly" was and is always larger than life.
