Life as strange as fiction in ‘Last Picture Show’

You have to be the son of and the son of a son of a car dealer to search the name of the Chevy dealer in the background as Sonny and Dwayne fight in last picture show: Murphy Chevrolet. Vincent Murphy senior. Circa 1999. The movie takes place in 1952 and 1971. More to the point for a plastic alto post would be a breakdown of the use of music and jukeboxes radios. I mention that Larry McMurtry’s grandson Played Cafe Zoe in Menlo Park?


i did not know until just now that Texas oil man and Dartmouth basketball legend Edward Leede was actually from Queens, and died in Denver: see above 

Part three I would not claim to know Katie Lee dartmouth  ‘85 but it would’ve been difficult to be at all social for three years in school with her and not notice her. Jackbox says she is a successful interior designer in New York and Los Angeles but also sends field reports from Paris and England like this:

I had always wanted to visit Blake’s Hotel in South Kensington, so was delighted to learn that we’d actually get to stay there for the remainder of our trip, while we tore around town taking in the design and art fairs, antiquing, going to museums and of course, eating, drinking and carousing along the way.

So this has nothing to do with Sybil Shepherd and Larry McMurtry and Peter bag down a bitch. Or class and sex
