ford memphis Q&A Review

Does your past define you?

Is your past defining your future? 1. Low SAT score? 2. College rejection? 3. Failed classes? 4. Low IQ test? This is ridiculous! Remember that ,Walt Disney, was fired because ,“he lacked imagination and had no good ideas.” Oprah Winfrey, was fired as a news reporter because she "Couldn’t keep her emotions from her stories." Elvis Presley, was told "He was better off returning to Memphis and driving trucks." Henry Ford, went broke five times with his early businesses. Albert Einstein, didn’t speak a word until he was four and could not read until he was seven. To answer your question, does your past define who you really are? No, NEVER let your past define your future! #BeBusinessSmart

As a white person have you ever experienced racism in the United States of America?

Yes. Memphis - 2017. I lived on a cove in the Cordova suburbs. We moved there in 2013. When we moved there, the neighborhood was still mostly long-time residents and very low crime. In the next few years, we started to feel the aftermath of the housing crash where many houses in the neighborhood were bought up cheap and then put up for rent. With the rentals came increased crime - it started with burglaries and quickly progressed. In the span of one year there were multiple murders in the neighborhood park where we used to take my son to play. By the end of 2016, every other house on my street (about 15 houses) had been sold - long-time residents were fleeing to safer areas. We were the only white family left on the street. That didn’t really phase us at all - to be honest, we didn’t really notice until it was pointed out to us (my wife and I were both raised in minority white cities/neighborhoods). At the time it was my wife and I and our 3 year old son. We are quiet people by nature and spent most of our time indoors or playing in the backyard. We got along great with our next-door neighbors to our right - an older black couple. The neighbor to our left was pretty reclusive and looked away whenever we were outside at the same time. Like I said - we’re quiet people - we get it (or so we thought). Well after living there for about 2 years, this neighbor started putting her trash in front of our house. It started with her trash bin in front of our curb. Living on a cove, it was kind of a pain, but whatever - no big deal, right? Within weeks, it turned into 2 big bins (trash and recycling) on the curb and 4–5 loose bags of yard clippings up in our grass. Ok - very annoying, but we’re really non-confrontational people. Next it turns to 2 bins on the curb, 4–5 loose bags in our yard, and various trash and debris strewn across our lawn. Still being non-confrontational, I decided to move the trash in front of her house. “IF YOU EVER TOUCH MY TRASH AGAIN, IT WILL BE THE LAST FUCKING THING ANY OF YOU DO!” That’s what we woke up to at 3am the following morning. She was screaming it into our bedroom window. I grabbed a gun and called the cops. Didn’t respond to her at all. Cops came out and said that there wasn’t anything they could do if we didn’t have a recording of it. Next time wait until she physically attacks us before calling. Thanks guys. The next week she puts all of her trash in front of our house and in our lawn again. I move it again - with the intention of having my camera ready to record her threats. While I’m moving her trash in front of her house, she pulls around the corner, sees me, and accelerates her car right at me. I had to jump out of the way to avoid being hit. She gets out and starts screaming about how she can put her trash wherever she damn well pleases. “Ma’am - we’ve never even met. Is there a reason you’re doing this? Did we do something to make you angry?” “Look around you. We don’t want your kind in this neighborhood anymore. You need to move.” There it was. That was the reason for her aggression. I was pretty naive at that point thinking that racism was on its way out and people like this didn’t really exist - especially not in suburbia. Turns out I was pretty wrong. So what did I do? I moved! There was no way I was going to leave my wife and 3 year old at home while I was at work with a neighbor that hated us to the point of violence for being white.

What is the best barbecue restaurant in Memphis, TN?

I lived in Memphis a few years ago and our favorite spot was The BBQ Shop on Madison. Eric runs the place and is great. We saw him earlier this year when we were in town visiting. Their Dancing Pigs BBQ sauce is fantastic. Central BBQ is a close second. Rendezvous and the places on Beal are a little too touristy for my tastes.

Was Allen Iverson still a superstar when he played for the Detroit Pistons and Memphis Grizzlies?

On the Detroit Pistons? I would say star, but not superstar. “Superstar” isn’t just a word you throw around. There are very few superstars in the league at the same time. Superstars are on another level than stars. We’re talking near MVP contenders and probable All-NBA First Team selections. Allen Iverson averaging 17.4 points per game in 54 games for Detroit is star-level or starter level (at the very least). Averaging 12 points in Memphis is basically low-profile starter numbers, or role player numbers. I would say Allen Iverson was perhaps a superstar on Denver, but after that, he wasn’t out of this world.

Why was Memphis one of the most influential cities in American music?

Wow, great question and I hope that I can do the subject justice with an answer. Memphis while not far from Nashville was an important hub for early immigrants early in the century , in particular African-American peoples . Following the end of the slave trade the area which had long been an important trading hub became home to many people African descent . Today Memphis holds the largest African-American population in Tennessee and the impact of the culture shaping the city in numerous ways. With the newcomers to the area the music and culture became an integral part of Memphis very early on. Today Memphis is home to the Blues Hall of Fame, the Rock and Soul Museum and the Stax Museum of American Soul Music located at the original Stax Records location. Music has long been a part of the culture of the city. In the heart of Memphis lies Beale Street an integral part of the history of blues music. In around the 1860’s the street was becoming a stop for travelling musicians, with the Young Men's Brass Band formed in 1867 being the first to call Beale St home. In time W.C. Handy singer/musician whom would become known as “ The Father of The Blues” called Memphis home around 1909. The man was highly influential in blues and the early beginnings of folk. His early published music was groundbreaking in the day and age as cultural tensions still existed. In 1926 Handy wrote a book Blues: An Anthology—Complete Words and Music of 53 Great Songs an early attempt to document the emergence of blues music as well as other books on the topic in the following years earning him the title Father of The Blues. Memphis was also home to Sun Studio founded by Sam Phillips who went on to record such names as Jackie Brenton and his Delta Cats' , Howlin' Wolf, Junior Parker, Little Milton, B.B. King, James Cotton, Rufus Thomas all recorded there in the early1950’s further solidifying the city’s reputation of the home and birth place of the blues. Then along came such names as Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Roy Orbison, Ike Turner, Charlie Feathers, Ray Harris, Jerry Lee Lewis , Charlie Rich and Warren Smith all recorded there very early on in their careers. The early beginnings of rock & roll, a proud part of Memphis history. The city of Memphis has always been an important part of musical history tracing it’s roots all the way back to the very origins in Africa. Memphis will always be an integral part of America’s musical history.

Should we honor Aretha Franklin by renaming La Guardia Airport the Aretha Franklin International Airport?

La Guardia airport is in New York City. Fiorello La Guardia was mayor of NYC from 1934 to 1945, before that, he was a congressman from NYC for about a decade. La Guardia airport was built while he was mayor, and he helped it get built. Aretha Franklin was a great singer and musician and a wonderful person. But she was not from New York (she was born in Memphis), she lived most of her life in Detroit. She lived in NYC for less than a decade. She was afraid of flying and did not perform overseas after 1984. Name a highway in Detroit for her. How about renaming Edsel Ford Freeway as Aretha Franklin Freeway (of Love)?

Who is the best Hollywood director of all time?

Billy Wilder Billy Wilder was born in 1906 and began his career in his homeland of Austria. His first film (as a director) in America was 1942's ,The Major and the Minor,. He was more than a director, he was also an acclaimed scriptwriter. He wrote (or co-wrote) all 10 of the scripts in this list. He was nominated for 12 Oscars for his writing and eight for his direction. He won three of those writing Oscars and two of the directing Oscars. He directed four of the films on AFI's Top 100 list. His name is and will remain on the list of film's greatest directors. To see a list of Billy Wilder's 10 best films (according to me), visit this post: ,10 Greatest Films Directed by Billy Wilder Alfred Hitchcock Alfred Hitchcock was born in England in 1899 and died in 1980. He started directing silent films in the early 1920s. His first talkie, ,Blackmail,, is considered Britain's first talkie. The decision to use sound was made after the film was begun. The lead actress, Anny Ondra, had a thick Czech accent, so another actress was hired to stand off screen and speak Anny's lines while Anny mouthed them. In 1940, David O. Selznick hired Hitchcock to come make his first American film, ,Rebecca,. That film won the Best Picture Oscar, cementing a career in Hollywood for Hitchcock, where he would become known as "The Master of Suspense". Unlike many of his peers, Hitchcock did not see television as slumming. He made many films for television, including 17 films shown under the series title ,Alfred Hitchcock Presents,, between 1955-1961. Hitchcock once said ",I am a typed director. If I made Cinderella, the audience would immediately be looking for a body in the coach.," He did indeed become typed. But he played that to his advantage and built a celebrity around himself. He not only made cameos in his films, but also appeared in the trailers for the films, as himself. He became the most recognized director in the business and wasn't afraid to give the audience what they wanted. With the notable and thus surprising exception of ,Psycho,, many of his films include the theme of a person having to prove their innocence, once accused. To see a list of Alfred Hitchcock's 10 best films (according to me), visit this post: ,10 Greatest Films Directed by Alfred Hitchcock John Ford John Ford was born in Maine, in 1894. He died in 1973. John was the brother of actor Francis Ford (an extremely prolific actor with 400 films to his credit). John Ford directed his first film (The Tornado) at the age of 17. During his 54 year career he directed over 150 films. He was awarded four Best Director Academy Awards - more than any other director. Two of those Oscars were won back to back (,The Grapes of Wrath, in 1941 and ,How Green Was My Valley, in 1942). He also won two Oscars for documentaries he made during World War II. Ford served in the navy during both World War II and Korea and remained in the reserves, eventually reaching the rank of Rear Admiral. He was wounded at the Battle of Midway. Ford made his name in westerns and is renowned for his preference of using visuals rather than words to convey the meaning of a scene, and the landscapes of Monument Valley gave him an incredibly expressive palette to do that. He worked at an incredible pace - doing 10-20 setups per day. Ford really hit his stride when he worked with John Wayne. Together the pair made 14 movies, five of which have made this list. Ford made nine films with Henry Fonda. But his most copious collaboration would be the 25 films he made with Harry Carey Sr. Ford never storyboarded his films. The shots were all in his head. He also tended to shoot in sequence cut in camera. Rarely did film end up on the editing room floor, and rarely did he provide the studios with an opportunity to influence control on the end product. To see a list of John Ford's 10 best films (according to me), visit this post: ,10 Greatest Films Directed by John Ford Howard Hawks Howard Hawks is the greatest Hollywood director you've probably never heard of. He was born in 1896 to a wealthy family and was majoring in engineering when World War I broke out. He spent the war as a flight instructor. After the war he went to Hollywood to pursue his dreams there and used his family's money as his entry by making a loan to Jack Warner (the head of Warner Brothers). From 1926 to 1929 he directed mostly silent films. His first talkie was in 1928. Over the next four decades he directed 40 films covering a wide range in genres - from violent gangster to screwball comedy to noir to epic western to musical. Six of the below films are included in Sight & Sound's Top 250 films of all time as rated by professional critics. Orson Welles once compared Ford and Hawks by saying ",Hawks is great prose, Ford is poetry,." Hawks believed that a scene was defined by the relationships between the characters and their setting. He is thus known for eschewing close-ups and instead filming wide shots that emphasize the setting. Hawks said that ",a good movie is three good scenes and no bad ones.," To see a list of Howard Hawk's 10 best films (according to me), visit this post: ,10 Greatest Films Directed by Howard Hawks William Wyler William Wyler was born Willi Wyler in 1902 in Alsace. His mother's cousin was Carl Laemmie. Laemmie had moved to America and become the head of Universal Studios. In 1920, when Europe was still reeling from the Great War, Laemmie offered Wyler an opportunity to come to America and work for Universal. Wyler began at the very bottom, as an errand boy. By 1925 he was a director, directing his first film, the silent ,Crook Buster,. Wyler spent World War II in the U.S. Army Air Forces making documentaries, including ,The Memphis Belle: The Story of a Flying Fortress,, for which he flew on bombing missions. Wyler is the most nominated director in Academy Award history. He was nominated for twelve Academy Awards as Best Director, and won three (,Mrs. Miniver, (1942), ,The Best Years of Our Lives, (1946), and ,Ben-Hur, (1959)). He was known as a perfectionist, with the nickname "90-take Wyler". William Wyler died in 1981, at the age of 79. To see a list of William Wyler's 10 best films (according to me), visit this post: ,10 Greatest Films Directed by William Wyler Special honourable mention to Steven Spielberg. Steven Spielberg There are certainly directors that we could identify with singular masterpieces that might exceed Spielberg: Orson Welles for ,Citizen Kane,, Alfred Hitchcock for ,Vertigo,, Billy Wilder for ,Sunset Blvd.,, Martin Scorsese for ,Taxi Driver,, and John Ford for ,The Searchers,, as just a few examples - But no one has a record as impressive as Steven Spielberg for continually excelling in such a broad spectrum of genres. Spielberg has such incredible range. No one else has done a spectrum that includes horror (,Jaws,), science fiction (,E.T.,), war (,Saving Private Ryan,), action serial (the Indiana Jones films) and serious thought provoking films like ,Schindler's List,, ,Amistad,, T,he Color Purple,, ,Lincoln,, ,War Horse,, and ,Munich,. Steven Spielberg's post is coming soon to ,The Greatest Films,.
