Oh Maria won't you come with me?
I called your name around the rosary
Oh Maria you can disagree
Spinning in the stormy history
~ Maria, by Daisy

The well reviewed animated film Mr Peabody & Sherman starts Friday at the Fairfield Orpheum Theatre. "A smart, funny and beautifully designed feature" - N.Y. Post.

The very filmosophical Heaven Is for Real opened Wednesday and is showing at the Ottumwa 8. It's the "true story of a small-town father (Greg Kinnear) who must find the courage and conviction to share his son's extraordinary near-death experience with the world." I'm excited to see this and hope to watch with my son Shane and friend Thomas "TJ" Gates, who experienced a profound near-death experience, or NDE. Our conversation while driving home will be intriguing! “Gentle, well-meaning and suffused with the easygoing tolerance that largely characterizes its small Midwestern community setting, Heaven Is For Real is well timed to coincide with collective speculation on transcendence in its varied, most inexplicable forms.”- Ann Hornaday, "Washington Post"
We'll talk about that, start our summer movie preview and more, on the Filmosophers Movie Talk show, with Chris Busch and Bruce Miller, "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions." Fridays, 12:30 PM, again Sunday mornings 11:30. Heaven Is for Real "is so down-to-earth and supernatural at the same time, you better buckle up. I've been blessed with faith and belief in Jesus, Mary, heaven, and angels. So like the pastor in this movie, these weren’t new concepts. It’s seeing them with new eyes that will change your heart and actions, possibly and hopefully forever." - Marya Jauregui, CatholicMom.com
Join host, Andrew Tint as he highlights the issues facing Generation Y.
This week Generation whY talks with Walk the Moon's lead singer, Nicholas Petricca. Nicholas Petricca is the lead vocals, Keys, Synthesizer, and Bass Drum. Nicholas wrote the song "Anna Sun", which was named the song of the summer in a 2011 Esquire article "30 Summer Songs Every Man Should Listen To". Written by Petricca and New York singer/songwriter Nick Lerangis towards the end of their college career, the song is named after their professor from Kenyon College and is meant to symbolize youth. "It's about college, about maintaining that little bit of being a kid," Petricca said. "Don't be afraid to play."
Walk the Moon is an indie rock band based in Cincinnati, Ohio. Lead singer Nicholas Petricca started the band in 2008 and went through several member changes before finally coming together with current members, Kevin Ray, Sean Waugaman, and Eli Maiman sometime in 2010. The band derives their name from the song "Walking on the Moon" by The Police. The group independently released their debut album, i want! i want!, in November 2010, receiving airplay for the track "Anna Sun". In February 2011, Walk the Moon signed with Mick Management. They signed to RCA Records and released their first official album, Walk the Moon in June 2012. Their self-titled debut is composed of many of their original tracks from i want! i want! in addition to new tracks that were written specifically for the album and were meant to reflect the kind of energy the band produced in their live shows.
