I need a 'I-visited-Marfa-and-all-I-got-was-a-picture-in-front-of-Prada-Marfa shirt.' You see, a few short weekends ago I was in the Marfa area and while it is a lovely town, nothing exciting happened for me there like it is now. A celebrity is in town. Why couldn't HE be there when I visited? 

Apparently, the star of one of everyone's favorite movies from the 80's, Footloose, actor Kevin Bacon is there filming a television pilot. Sweet! It's been awhile since we have had a 'celeb sighting' in the Permian Basin. According to our news partner Newswest 9, Mr. Bacon is filming a tv pilot based on the novel by Chris Kraus, 'I Love Dick.' Aside from filming, he also snapped a pic in front of Prada Marfa and posted it on social media and had a pizza party before school let out with several teachers from Marfa ISD. What a down-to-earth guy, hanging out with the locals!
