Having been born in NC, and spending two-thirds of each year in New Orleans, I have deep feelings for the South. Therefore, I naturally love me some Oxford American.
It’s a really great magazine that’s literate, entertaining, and musical.
Their current issue is the “Best of the South,” and comes complete with a DVD. Here’s how they describe the contents of the issue:
“…superheroes, the wildest river in America, jailhouse cuisine, skinny-dipping in the Big Easy, two larger-than-life world explorers, a Texas con man who discovers the biggest oil field in America, war art from the front lines, the best damn football book, and a detailed guide to thrilling events and sights you wonâ€™t want to miss on your summer road trips.”
Here’s a teaser for the included DVD:
OA’s description of what you’ll see on the DVD:
Get ready to be blown away by some rare and never-before-seen clips. See Elvis warming up the mike in preparation for his greatest performance ever. See lost footage of one of the most influential rock bands in music history: Big Star. (Gathering dust on the shelf until we polished it up for this DVD, these beautiful images were shot by Big Star guitarist Chris Bell and bassist Andy Hummel.)
