My long time readers and friends know this girl loves a countdown show.  So, why should my blog be any different? This year, visitors from 88 countries visited this site! Some found their way by Twitter others from searching for United States copyright and trademark law.  I continue to be blown away by the sharing and input you … Continue reading

Feature Friday – Alex Warren and SEQUENCE

Feature Friday – Alex Warren and SEQUENCE

I love the film community that is steadily growing in Mississippi.  Thanks to the work by the Mississippi Film Office, there is a continuous stream of films (with a budget and well-known actors!) being filmed in and around the Magnolia state.  This growth also leads to more opportunities for up and coming filmmakers, like my … Continue reading

Feature Friday – Revisited

Feature Friday – Revisited

When StatuteofRyAnne.com first started, I featured an artist each week I really admired.  The genesis was because there is SO much talent and great creative projects coming out of the South.  Just look at the film Get On Up, the story of James Brown, recently released in theaters and filmed almost entirely in Mississippi.  Or, the #HappyMS short music collage film showcasing Mississippi’s … Continue reading

All I Am Saying is Give Girls a Chance

The screens were big. The stars were glamorous. The stories were outrageous. My childhood was a place where frogs could talk and sing, pixie dust could solve most any problem (including gravity) and if I could dream it, then I could do it. Before it was hip to instill self-esteem, my parents were leading the … Continue reading

We Interrupt this Broadcast (Blog Post) …

“We interrupt this broadcast. The National Weather Service has issued a tornado warning for …” I hope you have never heard those words.

Top 10 Countdown of 2013

I love a good countdown show.  Whether it is the Top 10 Biggest Celebrity Fashion Mistakes, Billboard Hot 100, I Love the 80s or my childhood weekly favorite of Casey Kasem’s Top 40, I absolutely have to know who is Number 1.  I blame all of this on too many Sunday afternoons with my hotpink … Continue reading

Feature Friday – Bachelorette Season Finale

Feature Friday – Bachelorette Season Finale

When I am not reading or writing about intellectual property issues, my guilty pleasure is reality television.  There is something about it that pulls me in.  In college I was a faithful follower of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette series on ABC.  Graduating from undergrad, life, law school and being newly married, unfortunately, curbed me … Continue reading

Feature Friday – It’s a HEADRUSH

Feature Friday – It’s a HEADRUSH

Headrush – often equated with standing up too fast and getting extremely dizzy while becoming lightheaded. HEADRUSH is also the soon-to-be released film from young Mississippi filmmaker Johnson Thomasson. Unlike some of my past Feature Friday subjects, Johnson and I have not actually met. He was recommended to me by one of my readers and … Continue reading
