The Carter Family photographed by Eric Schaal
Poor Valley, VA - 1941
In the book I mentioned yesterday, the Carter Family joins forces with Coco Chanel to fight vampires.
On a more personal and non-fiction note, Poor Valley is about thirty miles from where my mom grew up.
What's your favorite Carter Family song?
I'm going with "I'm Thinking Tonight of My Blue Eyes". Unless it's "Hello Stranger" or "Wildwood Flower". "No Depression in Heaven" is really good too. Of course, if you like church songs there's always "Can the Circle Be Unbroken" and "Anchored in Love".
It's hard to choose...

better known as Gogo Schiaparelli
Just finished reading "The Show That Smells" by Derek McCormack .
Elsa Schiaparelli is a vampire while her (real life) nemesis Coco Chanel is a vampire hunter.
Wordplay, violence, haute couture, country music.

"The first-ever film version of Lewis Carroll's tale has recently been restored by the BFI National Archive from severely damaged materials. Made just 37 years after Lewis Carroll wrote his novel and eight years after the birth of cinema, the adaptation was directed by Cecil Hepworth and Percy Stow, and was based on Sir John Tenniel's original illustrations."
"With a running time of just 12 minutes (8 of which survive), Alice in Wonderland was the longest film produced in England at that time. Film archivists have been able to restore the film's original colours for the first time in over 100 years."
Found on the TamTam Books blog
Have you seen the new Alice?
