'Disturbia' question

Did anybody see the movie Disturbia?

It came out last year, kind of a spin-off of Rear Window: Kid (Shia LaBasdasdff) is on house arrest for three months and starts spying on his neighbors -- with scary results!!

Anyhow, I noticed this poster in his bedroom.

Problem: It's cut off, so I couldn't read the whole thing.

All I got is "Charm City Dr----"

What could that be?

Charm City Drug Band?

Caught this on HBO too... I can't believe I am admitting I watched it.

Saw the poster, and then also saw above his desk a flyer for a Sam Holden exhibit.

Sam is a local photographer who has shot many Rock Stars and also shot the Raven's program covers two years ago.

What's the Baltimore connection here?

There's actually another connection -- when the neighbors are moving in, they're unloading their stuff from Mayflower trucks.

Sure, Mayflower is a national brand, but it has a ... special ... history in Baltimore.

Oh god wow, that was quite a catch Sam.

This posting is so funny. I dvr'd this movie and watched it last night with my girlfriend. I immediately noticed the CharmCity poster and Sam Holden poster. I love sam holden photography. Makes me wonder about the connection also. The set designer probably raided Sound Garden in Fells Point for the posters.

That's definitely Charm City Drug Band; I'm wearing a t-shirt with that logo as we speak. I was "in" the CCDB for a few months in 2001. A friend of mine knew Eric, and since he was looking for anyone interested, there we had it, even though none of us could play any of his large collection of world instruments (hence the large amount of percussion going on at any given time). Given that it was such a loose assemblage, the name was goof on the idea of a jug band.
