  • Maryland native Michael Tully celebrates Ocean City summers in Ping Pong Summer

    Something about Maryland summers speaks to filmmakers. Last year, we wrote about Matt Porterfield's I Used to Be Darker (see "I Used to Be Darker," Feature, May 8, 2013), which started out in Ocean City and found its way to Baltimore, all the while reveling in the cinematic qualities of the warmest season. Maryland native and filmmaker Michael Tully spent his summers in Ocean City as a kid; since 1992, he's been developing an idea for a film based around those mid-'80s shore visits. The result-well over 20 years in the making-combines the over-the-top comedy of summer movies like National Lampoon's Vacation and Wet Hot American Summer with the comparatively understated humor of The Karate Kid. Ping Pong Summer, featuring marquee names like Susan Sarandon and Lea Thompson, throws us back to 1985 with its grainy film quality; carefully curated, hip-hop-heavy soundtrack; and a vintage T-shirt montage that even children of the '90s will appreciate. City Paper spoke with Tully over the phone about getting his movie made after more than two decades of plotting.

    Misfortune mounts on ill-fated "party" ride

    Not like it really needs saying, but: Don't take pills and drive, especially if you're traveling with heroin and lots of cash and don't have a job. To drive the point home, consider the case of 49-year-old Sandra Diane Rust and 50-year-old Samuel...
