7 Short Documentaries Including The Man Behind The Merferds at the St. Louis International Film Festival
The flood wall feud has another participant and this time he didn't bother with the art part. But Merferd had an answer to that:
Merferd is praying over the evil one who is overcome with the Love of God.
"It's the goodness of God that leads men to repentance." -- Roman's 2:4
After Merferd came out from behind the evil one and put his hand on his head, the Tennessee tager's fans went bonkers and were livid. One even threatening to break my hands. At that point Merferd went from pulling up the eye brow and sticking his little finger in his ear, to jamming a tooth brush in his mouth. The green teeth were getting to us all anyway.
One evening, in the University City Loop Phil and Merferd were fortunate enough to meet a gifted Kurdish musician. He was playing near Ranoush, a Middle Eastern/Syrian restaurant. The restaurant had been damaged during the recent protests. And the Merferd and Ranoush trolley peace train picture was still covering the broken glass front doors.
As you watch him playing, the camera moves to the restaurant. Merferds are covering part of the restaurant. That part of the restaurant was damaged when protesters took to University City, Missouri a few weeks earlier.
We are honored that he'll be performing before the documentary "The Man Behind the Merferds," November 10th and 11th as the doors open at 6:00, at a place of many peoples and nations "New City South."

Phil and Merferd used to once think how cool it would be to be at the front of the Paint Louis Wall. Not only did that happen today, but Phil got to paint alongside Phil Jarvis and get to know a master St Louis painter.
The Bucket truck didn't work today so Phil and Merferd didn't either. They had more and more fun not working. They were in down town Ferguson, driving along -- Carson's mom was JUST telling him about Merferd when Carson spotted us!
Phil did one box and three more Fergusonians made four new friends. We all knew of Merferd! Second day the tree truck is broken down, but Phil and Merferd don't care! Outside of the Aldis of course.
