Paul Fauerso talks about his career in music, experiences with Maharish Mahesh Yogi, and much more. We'll play his new jazzy version of "Spoonful". His band the Loading Zone performed in the Bay area back in the 60s, best known for supporting some of the biggest acts of the period including Cream, The Who, The Byrds, Big Brother & the Holding Company, Grateful Dead, Country Joe & The Fish, Howlin' Wolf, Sam & Dave, Chuck Berry and Buddy Miles.
He was in town to perform at the 25th anniversary of MSAE.
Author Lou Manzo Exposes Christie's Naked Ambition
In his searing tell-all, Ruthless Ambition: The Rise and Fall of Chris Christie, former New Jersey State Assemblyman Louis Manzo recounts an extraordinary tale of political ruthlessness, corruption, and greed while also telling the story of how he was caught in the center of one of the most egregious political scandals in modern-day history: the Bid Rig III sting operation, masterminded by the then United States Attorney for the District of New Jersey and soon-to-be Governor Chris Christie.
Manzo shows us how the blind ambitions of Christie and his staff centered on capturing a governorship and the patronage jobs that accompany it, then parlaying that office into a shot at the presidency. Meticulous in backing things up with objective legal documentation, Manzo makes a convincing and disconcerting case for the governor as an unbridled and sinister political figure who made the most of a seriously flawed Department of Justice and overall dysfunctional judicial system to feed his megalomania and desire for power.
Why do people's stories matter? Because they help us discover what it means to be human. They help us explore how to make good choices about how to live, too. So says oral historian and author Esther Ehrlich. Her recently released historical novel NEST is receiving well-deserved and widespread critical acclaim. Nest explores serious issues (family dysfunction, physical disability, depression, grief, and loss). Still, joy leaps off its pages, and the healing power of nature, friendship and art is stressed. For a glimpse into the creative journey of a gifted writer, tune in to The Studio with Cheryl and Esther Ehrlich this week.
GREAT TASTE is “LIVE” this week, Wednesday, September 10 at 7:00 pm, as we launch a new “Join the Chef” monthly series from the kitchen at Green Building Supply. Kicking off the series is a young chef, Zach Gutweiler, who creates amazing tastes in a 25 square foot space called Hole in the Wall in Des Moines. To find out what he is preparing each week check out Hole in the Wall at Gas Lamp on Facebook.

Zach, along with his sous chef, Bruce Bales, will do some shopping at the Wednesday Fairfield Farmers Market prior to the show. His style combines classic French technique with the daredevil attitude he polished during his professional in-line skating career. At “the Wall” Zach features as much organic and local produce and meats as possible from numerous farmers around the Capital city.
We were delighted to learn Boyhood is held over at the Orpheum Theatre. Boyhood is groundbreaking fictional cinema, as it was filmed over 12 years with the same cast, with a breakthrough performance by Ellar Coltrane, "who literally grows up on screen before our eyes." I predicted it will win the Oscar for Best Picture even before I saw it, so my expectations were very high. I saw it and agree with- among others- the nonprofit arts organization Heartland Film, who bestowed Boyhood the Truly Moving Picture Award. "The industry award is given to select theatrically-released films for their ability to inspire filmmakers and audiences through the transformative power of the art form. A stirring collection of moments that span 12 years of a boy’s life, Richard Linklater’s Boyhood is nothing short of a masterpiece, said Heartland Film Artistic Director Tim Irwin. Both innovative and introspective, the film is a raw slice of Americana that showcases the full range of the human experience." Chris Busch & I agree, it's a film fan's blessing that we have Boyhood available to experience right here in our wonderful community. Chris predicts- and I agree- that Richard Linklater will also win the Oscar for Best Director.
We'll talk about this, 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 at 12:30 PM, again Sunday mornings 11:30. "Epic in technical scale but breathlessly intimate in narrative scope, Boyhood is a sprawling investigation of the human condition." - RT
Welcome to another episode of INSIDE THE HEADLINES with Newsvandal JP Sottile and James Moore.
