The Seed & Feed Marching Abominable unveils its Naughty Bits

As The Seed & Feed Marching Abominable, Atlanta’s iconic kooky community marching band struts into its 40th anniversary today at the Inman Park Festival parade, the act has a souvenir for fans. To celebrate four decades of silliness, the band’s fundraising arm, the Seed & Feed Marching Abominable Endowment, Inc., a 501c3 nonprofit, is selling the act’s brand new 2015 "Naughty Bits" calendar.

My drunken dinner with Kim Zolciak Biermann

At 3:40 p.m. Tuesday, my cellphone rings. It’s my driver Bashira. The black sedan is idling outside, waiting to take me to this evening’s assignment. I’m being whisked to Bravo reality TV star Kim Zolciak Biermann and Atlanta Falcons defensive end Kroy Biermann’s Alpharetta estate to consume breakfast foods at dinnertime. And to get drunk.

Atlanta mayor Kasim Reed is engaged

The mayor’s office is scheduled to make it official later today — Atlanta mayor Kasim Reed is engaged to Sarah-Elizabeth Langford after popping the question last week during a romantic getaway in the Bahamas. Langford is the daughter of late Atlanta city councilman and Georgia state senator Arthur Langford, Jr. who has a park named for him on Thornton Street in southwest Atlanta.

Monica Pearson and the mystery of the missing Emmy

Marietta Antique Mall consigner Bob Ramaley estimates that he blew “maybe a grand” for the entire contents of an abandoned public storage unit on Canton Road back in 2012. The boxed up junk then enjoyed a two-year residency in Ramaley’s garage until last week when he unearthed the trinkets while setting up his booth at the burgeoning business on Roswell Road.

The Clermont Lounge becomes a coffee table book

The first time Atlanta writer Dana Hazels Seith attempted to interview Blondie for the new Clermont Lounge coffee table book, No Cameras, the legendary dancer threw her out of her Ponce de Leon Avenue dressing room. For good measure, Blondie also tossed Seith on her second and third attempts to talk to her.

Walking Dead Escape debuts in Atlanta May 31

Until you can put that CDC Zombie Apocalypse Preparedness into use for real, Walking Dead comics creator Robert Kirkman has a fun alternative for the AMC drama’s legion of fans. And it heads this way May 31 when Philips Arena will play host to the first-ever Walking Dead Escape zombie obstacle course experience.

Aaron Paul’s Need for Speed and Antico Pizza

There’s a reason the 1968 Steve McQueen car chase classic Bullitt is flickering on the screen in the Need for Speed scenes shot at the Swan Drive-In in Blue Ridge last summer. The high-octane thrill ride in theaters today from first-time director and former stuntman Scott Waugh and starring Breaking Bad two-time Emmy winner Aaron Paul and rapper/actor Scott “Kid Cudi” Mescudi is a breath-snatching homage to McQueen’s 60s and 70s racing flicks.

Sam Massell: It’s time to say “never again”

Last Tuesday night, huddled behind the steering wheel in an overcoat, gloves and a hat, Buckhead Coalition president Sam Massell was gridlocked on Atlanta’s main artery, stuck in the slush with the rest of us. As his usual 16-minute Buckhead commute down Peachtree Road slid into an hour, Massell, 86, had time to reflect on half a century of metro Atlanta's mass transit maladies.

Steve Penley has a message for Atlanta’s weather whiners

Atlanta artist Steve Penley had a message for the city Friday, so he took to his paints and brushes to best express himself. In black paint, Penley wrote: “Atlanta is very lucky to have a great mayor and Ga. has a great Gov. Get a grip everyone. It’s weather!” He posted it on his artist Facebook page. So why did Penley feel the need to address the ongoing criticism of Georgia governor Nathan Deal and Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed? For starters, Penley’s work has been unintentionally ridiculed all week.
Jon Stewart Daily Show Atlanta

The Daily Show pounds Atlanta with fresh snark storm


Just like Georgia governor Nathan Deal’s response to Tuesday’s wintry mix, Atlantans were completely blindsided Thursday night when Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with John Stewart devoted six minutes of airtime to mocking us mercilessly. Describing our traffic snarling weather event as an “ice age doomsday zombie apocalypse,” Stewart pondered: “I can’t even imagine how much snow it would take to bring on the zombie apocalypse. Three feet? Ten feet?” Cut to a clip of a Fox News anchor: “Two inches of snow hit the area.” “Really?” asked Stewart. “Two inches of snow? Is that what happens when the south is confronted by something not specifically mentioned in Revelations?”
