"Soldier Girls" - Women at War

Soldier GirlsEver wonder why people, and women in particular, join the National Guard?  And what it was like to be called in to active duty in Afghanistan and Iraq? 

In "Soldier Girls: The Battles of Three Women at Home and at War," renowned journalist Helen Thorpe delves deep into the lives of her subjects for twelve years, from their homes in Indiana to a combat zone in Afghanistan and back again. Thorpe is also the author of "Just Like Us: The True Story of Four Mexican Girls Coming of Age in America."  She was a staff writer for the New York Observer, The New Yorker, and Texas Monthly, and her freelance work has been published widely.

Join Monica and Caroline on Writers' Voices this week for another in-depth conversation with a fascinating writer.

The Filmosophers Movie Talk

There's a double shot of LIFE at the Orpheum Theatre. Starting this weekend: Life After Beth, starring Aubrey Life After Beth poster Plaza (Safety Not Guaranteed) John C Reilly (Guardians Of The Galaxy) & Dane DeHaan (The Amazing Spider-Man 2). "After his girlfriend unexpectedly dies, Zach (DeHaan) is devastated. However, he gets a second chance at love after she rises from the dead." "Quirky, spirit-pervasive throughout, and great supporting cast, including Anna Kendrick." "Sometimes tender, sometimes frantic, and always funny, the film's surprising coherence is exemplified in a climactic scene that pairs credible heartbreak with pure slapstick." "Plaza is terrific. She commits so fully to her rabid, Romero-esque alter ego, she chews the movie up." Held over is Life Itself. "A lively thumbs up documentary on Roger Ebert, America's most popular, intelligent and influential modern-day movie critic." "Every movie fan should see Life Itself." - Chris Busch, Filmosopher

We'll talk about that, the new releases, what we've seen and more, on the Filmosophers, with Chris Busch & Bruce Miller "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions." Fridays, 12:30 PM, again Sunday mornings, 11:30. "There's a glimmer of hipster cool to this play on the zombie genre." - Life After Beth

I post a little this and that here on the KRUU website. And it surprises me that folks actually read it. I am being totally serious. Even if it's just a couple of people giving it the eyeball, it's really an honor to have someone reading this stuff. After all, the Internet is a very big place. And there are an awful lot of things on it that are more interesting than anything I can conjure up. Heck, just Google "Claude Rains" or "Elvis Jumpsuits" and start reading. It's all fascinating.

But don't do that search until you're finished reading this post........okay, I'm done.
