Silent MagicWhen long time Fairfielder John Viviano semi-retired from business consulting, he turned to writing action adventure novels that contain some spiritual knowledge and an element of romance.  The first two books, "Silent Magic: Book One of the Adventures, Romance and Enlightenment of Clay St. Clair and Nancy Picararo" and "Quantum Silence" were released in paperback and E-book format in 2013.  Book Three, "The Sixteen Kalas of Silence" is scheduled for release in 2014. The main character, Clay St. Clair, is a former Army Ranger and part-time FBI contractor who, needless to say, gets drawn into saving the world from nefarious plots.

Join us this week on Writers' Voices as we discuss with John the process of writing and publishing an action adventure trilogy, and why he chose this genre to impart spiritual knowledge.

Nebraska movie posterWe're very excited that Nebraska is showing at the Orpheum Theatre in Fairfield. Nebraska's an example of the critically lauded films the Filmosopher's anticipated when the Orpheum opened. "Elegant in its simplicity and poetic in its message, Nebraska adds another stirringly resonant chapter to Alexander Payne's remarkable filmography (Sideways, The Descendants)." Featuring "a career-defining performance by Bruce Dern, Nebraska's one of the best films of the year, the work of a great director hitting his stride." Also at the Orpheum, Rural Route Films: Best Of Shorts. 11 amazing short films, including Magnetic Reconnection, a film about the regenerative power of nature and the futility of mankind's struggle against the natural processes. Features some of the best footage of the aurora borealis ever captured. "The most moving short film I have ever seen. It is stunning." - IMDB user. "Taking in a Rural Route program is like choosing the road less travelled, and seeing something new in our constantly amazing world." More at RuralRouteFilms dot com.

We have reviews of the highly lauded films Her and Inside Llewyn Davis, plus we'll tell you why every film fan should consider seeing Disney's Frozen on the big screen, as I did at the Ottumwa 8. And don't be late, one of the finest Disney cartoons ever created shows before. You'll especially resonate with it if you've seen the highly recommended Disney film Saving Mr. Banks. We're 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.      - Does he have Alzheimer's?  - No, he just believes what people tell him... ~ Nebraska

- Writer's Voice - 20140110-Jo Ann Fore and Wade Kernohan

59:55 minutes (82.28 MB) Stereo 44kHz 192Kbps (CBR)

Jo Ann Fore This week on Writers' Voices we will be diving into two seemingly disparate forms of creative expression, but perhaps we will find unexpected similarities between them. 

First, we will be joined by popular blogger Jo Ann Fore, author of "When a Woman Finds Her Voice: Overcoming Lifes' Hurts and Using Your Story to Make a Difference."  In this book, Jo Ann shares her own history as a victim of abuse and poor life choices and how she found her voice, as well as the stories of many other women who have broken the shell of silence and found healing through speaking out (or writing.) Jo Ann is also the founder of the web site WriteWhereItHurts.org, which encourages others to use writing as a healing tool.

Then, at 1:30, we welcome Fairfield resident Wade Kernohan, who was recommended to us by his publisher Rodney Charles of 1st World Publishing, also of Fairfield.  Rodney says Wade's book, "Marks on a Page" is the most unusual he has ever published.  The book is described as "an assemblage of ink strokes"  that become "expressive ideas that demonstrate the relevance of abstract art..."  and as a way to "expand your expressive repetoire."  Perhaps another way of finding your voice, symbolically?

Join us for these explorations!

Join host, Andrew Tint as he highlights the issues facing Generation Y.

This week Andrew Tint talks with two Fairfield natives, Talia Winningham and Tama Eagleson, about growing up in Fairfield, their farming internships, and their social justice work.

Talia Winningham spent the last three months interning for the Expedition Education Institute in Maine, which runs travel semester programs for college students based out of a retrofitted school bus. The programs incorporate a focus on the environment and sustainability as well as service projects and backcountry trips. While they didn't run a full semester while I was interning for them, they did run a 10-day program focused on climate change issues that I was the food-coordinator for. Before that internship Talia spent the summer working at an amazing summer camp called Tamarack Farm, which is a 7-week for camp for teenagers where they learn to operate a small farm, live in community and make consensus decisions, build things, cook.

Also joining Generation whY is Tama Eagleson. Tama moved to Olympia, Washington to be a paraeducator. Tama's program selects high school students to work on a local farm for a semester, doing everything from caretaking to learning about the environment. This is an interview you shouldn't miss, unless you're out farming.

- Writer's Voice - 20140117- Anthony Horowitz

59:18 minutes (54.29 MB) Stereo 44kHz 128Kbps (CBR)

Anthony HorowitzIt's not every day that Monica and Caroline interview a writer and then see him on television that night - but the day that we recorded this in-depth interview with Anthony Horowitz, one of Britain's most popluar and best-loved writers who earlier this week was honored as an Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (just two steps shy of knighthood), he was featured on the PBS special, "How Sherlock Changed the World."  That was due to his most recent adult novel, "House of Silk," a Sherlock Holmes novel written at the behest of the Conan Doyle Estate and publlished in November 2011.  (Sherlock changed the world because of the advances in crime detection that resulted from the methods employed in his fictional adventures).  The "House of Silk," by the way, reads just like Conan Doyle's books - and is one of the best novels I've read in years.

But that's not actually the book we are focusing on today, which is  "Russian Roulette: The Story of an Assassin."

There's so much going on that you don't blink for fear that you might miss something." - Rex Reed.

It starts Friday at the Fairfield Orpheum Theatre, along with the highly acclaimed documentary I Am Divine. "A warm, affectionate, even triumphant bio of John Waters' immortal leading "lady", Harris Glenn Milstead."

We'll cover the rest of the Oscar nominations; alert you to new releases; review The Wolf Of Wall Street, Philomena, and Nebraska, all Oscar nominated for Best Picture, and if time allows tell you of some very good films now available on video, including 20 Feet From Stardom, nominated for Best Documentary.

Michael FurchertFormer East German Michael Furchert, Christian speaker and writer, speaks with James Moore. He is coming to the Sondheim Center in Fairfield to tell the story of his family living in East Berlin during the Nazi regime of Hitler Germany and throughout the turbulent years of European history of WWII and Communism. 

Michael’s story is an inspiring account of overcoming hardships, believing in the impossible, rising from trial to triumph.  But it is also a challenge to many in our western culture not to take our freedom for granted, not to let our faith grow superficial and light, not to give in to indifference and complacency. As America faces times of uncertainty today, he will challenge us to build our lives on a foundation that will last.

Michael will present “Deception and Discernment” at the Sondheim Center, Mon Jan 20 at 7pm.  Visit www.fairfieldacc.com for more information.  The event is sponsored by Take a Stand, a grass-roots group of interested citizens from Jefferson and Van Buren counties cooperating with area churches.  It is free and open to the public.  A free will offering will be accepted.

The Priority list If you've been listening to Writers' Voices for awhile, you probably know that Caroline is a retired English teacher, as is our guest today, David Menasche.  After reading his book, Caroline says she wished she had been able to read it while she was still teaching.

David taught high school English at a magnet school in the Miami area.  At the age of 34 he was diagnosed with a brain cancer and told he had a few months to live.  David continued teaching for six more years - as he explained to students who asked him why he wasn't out doing what he loved in the short time left to him; he was.  Then, in 2012, David's lost most of his vision and much of the mobility on his left side and had to quit teaching.  But he was not a man to sit around waiting to die.  Instead, he decided to couch-surf around the country, visiting friends and former students.  Within days of putting the word out on Facebook, he had invitations for over 100 places to stay.  Along the way, he recorded his conversations and emailed himself notes about his journey, which he turned into a book after returning home.  

Tune into Writers' Voices for an inspiring conversation with a man who gets our vote for Teacher of the Decade.

Many people have the mistaken idea that traveling for work to different places is a blast.  It can be, but working trade shows is usually more exhausting than exhilarating.  After almost three weeks on the road and three trade shows, I am thrilled to be home for a few weeks before leaving for two more trade shows in February.

The good news is I did enjoy some terrific meals-good food and great company are perfect for recharging my system after 8-10 hours of standing and talking.  More details perhaps next week, but the standout spots included Tartine, the bakery where Heli Claire Witherspoon works in San Francisco, a surprising meal at The Barrymore in Las Vegas, Nielsens Frozen Custard’s Vegas branch (not Ted Drewes, a St. Louis landmark, but very good), and two other favorite places in Vegas-Otto at The Venetian, and Chada Thai in a nondescript strip mall on the outskirts of Vegas’ Chinatown (not what you might expect-just one strip mall after another filled with restaurants and foot massage parlors).

Lolis Eric ElieOn the show this week I talk with two engaging authors about two terrific new books.  First up is Treme:  Stories and Recipes from the Heart of New Orleans by Lolis Eric Elie.  This book was inspired by the HBO series Treme, that concluded its four-year run in December 2013.  The book is a tribute to the culinary spirit and heritage of New Orleans, and Lolis is an amazing ambassador for the city.

 

 

Joanne ChangFlour, Too:  Indispensable Recipes for the Cafe’s Most Loved Sweets & Savories is a gift from Joanne Chang.  Mouthwatering may be a commonly used word to describe recipes, but I can’t think of a better way to characterize the amazing variety of cakes, soups, sandwiches, and other goodies that Joanne has included in this follow-up to her first cookbook-Flour.  She was so much fun to talk with, and shed some interesting light on both her cultural background and her chosen profession.

Laurie Halse AndersonThis week's guest on Writers' Voices is one of the most influential writers for young adults today. Laurie Halse Anderson's first young adult novel, "Speak" is the story of a young vicitm of sexual assault and is used in classrooms across the nation. Never one to avoid the tough subjects, her most recent book, "The Impossible Knife of Memory" is inspired by Anderson's own childhood, growing up with a father suffering from war-induced PTSD.  Already it is allowing teens who are living with this issue an opportunity for understanding and healing.

In speaking with Writers' Voices, Anderson tells about her journey from her early career as a journalist, why she began writing children's books, and her successful transition to young adult fiction. In addition to contemporary novels, she also has published a number of historical novels for young adults including the "Seeds of America" trilogy. The first book of that series, "Chains" takes the unusual perspective of a run-away slave during the American Revolution, and shines light on the little-known truth that at the time of the Declaration of Independence, even the Northern states were slave states. 

Join us this week on Writers' Voices for this fascinating conversation on writing for young adults.

"The Great Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. The intelligently observed and The Great Beauty posterstaggeringly beautiful Italian foreign-language Oscar nominee is about life, death and the search for the things that give meaning to both." And it opens Friday at the Orpheum Theatre in Fairfield. This is exciting, and is to be seriously considered by film fans as a big screen must-see. Especially when it's actually showing on a big screen near you - right here in Fairfield's cultural district! "Dazzlingly ambitious, beautifully filmed, and thoroughly enthralling, The Great Beauty offers virtuoso filmmaking from the great Italian director Paolo Sorrentino." "It's not often that we feel ravaged by a film, but The Great Beauty is a ravager, a spectacular odyssey of emotion and intellect and sensuality through the rich, contradictory and self indulgent world of The Eternal City." The raves for this Best Foreign Language Oscar nominated film go on and on. "The Great Beauty is drop-dead gorgeous, a film that is luxuriously, seductively, stunningly cinematic."- Kenneth Turan, L.A. Times

Daniel argues that the race to better humankind is about to go to a new dimension as a result of a nanotechnological revolution, this enthralling read purports that the depth of progress and technological development is such that people in the very near future may no longer be fully human. TransEvolution discusses the transition from human to someone—or something—new and different and the increasing trend of implementing prosthetics, organ implants, bionic eyes, hearing aids, and other technological augmentations. Humans are capable of doing things they never imagined would be possible 20 years ago, and the rapid growth of this trend is nowhere near its end. But do the benefits of these advancements come with a price? Is humanity in danger because of this domination of science and technology?

My Foreign CitiesFirst, a little explanation as to the title of this post.  I read the end of this book on an airplane and although no one around me seemed to notice, I was, quite obviously, crying. So be forewarned.

When you are young and in love, "until death do us part" seems like a daunting amount of forever.  Unless the one you love suffers from something like cystic fibrosis. Elizabeth Scarboro and her high school sweetheart/first husband, Stephen, refused to let his illness define their lives or love, but they could not avoid its impact.Elizabeth Scarboro

Scarboro's story, "My Foreign Cities" was an Oprah Book of the Week and named by Library Journal as one of the bestmemoirs of the year.  Previously, Scarboro published two novels for children.  Her essays have appeared in The New York Times, Huffington Post, and more.

Join us this week on Writers' Voices to learn what it takes to share such a personal story with the world.

Candy Calderon: Holistic Health Coach and Creator of Ñami by Candy

Candy comes from a business background and worked for several years with international corporations traveling the world developing their business, but always felt in her heart that health & wellness were her true calling. After her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer, she took it upon herself to learn everything needed to help her heal faster and naturally. That’s when she learned about the benefits and healing qualities of a plant-based diet, eventually switching to that lifestyle and her journey as a holistic health coach began. She now coaches people on how to achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle; she’s an avid plant-based nutrition advocate and educator, chef, plus a yoga & meditation lover. She’s passionate about transmitting her message to everyone in need, but especially to her Latin community both Spanish and English speaking.

Rachel RiesThe words used to be alive in my mouth
Trying to find a way out
Strange how it was I could never make them stay
or go away
Willful were they
And caught in their clutch was I

~ Words, Rachel Ries

Returning from a years-long hiatus, Rachel Ries is releasing her third long player, Ghost of a Gardener on Feb 18, 2014. Her voice at times echoes that of Regina Spektor or early Maria Muldaur and this new album is full of thoughtful and inventive arrangements. Fingerpicked melodicism pairs with sweeping strings & analog synths while a Merle Haggard-style drinking song struts with trumpets and close knit harmonies.

Catch Gerald Grohmann interview with Hugh Cornwell on KRUU FM.

Hugh Cornwell is a British Musician, Singer Songwriter who had huge success during the eighties with the band The Stranglers being one of the premier bands in Britain alongside bands like the police and the clash. Despite their huge success in Europe scoring 23 top 40 singles and Albums the Stranglers remained largely unknown in the US. A phenomenon Hugh explained with their reluctance doing the extensive touring that would be necessary to become really popular in the US.

Hugh left the Stranglers in 1990 pursuing a solo career.  Even so he could not reclaim the success of the Stranglers, he remains as one off the most revered and respected musicians on the British island.

Since about five years Hugh is touring the US regularly and I was lucky enough to catch him on his last tour in Minneapolis. I regard myself extremely lucky for this opportunity to have this conversation and I am sharing it with you tonight in my show. So join me for this one hour with one of the most fascinating Musicians on today's Music scene.

Supreme AwakeningThis week on Writer's Voices, Monica and Caroline welcome MUM Executive Vice President Craig Pearson to discuss his recently released book, "The Supreme Awakening: Experiences of Enlightenment Throughout Time  - and How We Can Cultivate Them." The product of research Dr. Pearson did for his doctoral dissertation, this book allows the reader to share the enlightened experiences of people throughout history. By gathering these many stories from across history, from saints and mystics, writers, world leaders, even athletes,Craig Pearson Dr. Pearson provides a unique perspective on what is obviously a universal experience.  

Many of the people profiled within are expected, people who are well-known for their spiritual experiences - Buddha, St. Teresa of Avila, Thoreau, Rumi. But there are many surprises here as well - Anwar Sadat, Einstein, Plato and many more.  I was most fascinated by these stories.  It made me realize that the accomplishments of many great persons may have been a direct result of their experiences with other states of consciousness.

Dr. Pearson is also the author of "The Complete Book of Yogic Flying."

Sam AuenChef/owner Sam Auen is not a conventional character, and Tacopacalypse is not a conventional "Mexcican" restaurant. If you are looking for "Mexican" food replete with tons of beans, cheese, and bad salsa, the good news is plenty of those spots abound in almost any USA town.  If you are drawn to good food loaded with creativity and fun, then there are only two places in Iowa where it comes in the form of tacos and burritos laden with asian influences-the original Tacopacalypse now located in Des Moines' East Village, and the new branch in Fairfield at The Orpheum.

During our hour-long conversation Sam and I hip-hopped our way in and around many topics including how his approach to food developed, his daily schedule, upcoming projects, music, and cycling.  Listen close and you'll hear the soul of a person who is an outspoken straight shooter with a huge heart.

More good news from the Orpheum Theatre in Fairfield. 12 Years A Slave, the OscarOrpheum Theatre winner for Best Picture of the year starts Friday. Also, "the long wait will soon be over, as the south theater will be opening this May! To extend their programming for Fairfield, the Orpheum will be finishing renovation of the south theater, which will include new seats, digital projection, and 5.1 Dolby Digital Sound. The goal has always been to have one theater exhibit mainstream blockbuster films and the other exhibit independent films and host live performances. In order to make this happen, the Orpheum is looking to partner with large businesses in Fairfield to raise funds by offering discounted ticket prices to employees.  If interested, please contact Kristian Day at kristianday@gmail.com."

Also, on Friday the Fairfield Library features an exceptional free film: Gravity. It was nominated for Best Picture and won 7 Academy awards, the most for any film. "Believe the hype: Gravity is as jaw-droppingly spectacular as you've heard"- AP. If you haven't seen this on a big screen, or would like to again, this is a great opportunity, and it's free. Doors open at 7:00, the film begins at 7:30. "As always your donations for the free film, organic popcorn and bottled water help the library to renew it's movie licenses." Thank Jan for all her work to make this happen.

Chris has seen Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel and I'm excited to hear his review. It will be coming to the Orpheum soon. We'll talk about that, the new releases and more, on the Filmosophers, with Chris Busch and Bruce Miller, "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions."

Road to Reckoning"The Lord made men, but Sam Colt mad them equal."  This week on Writers' Voices we go back in time, to 1837, when the idea of a revolver that could shoot 6 times without reloading was novel - and the basis for this taut, suspenseful young adult novel set in the wilds of Pennsylvania during a depression. 

Robert Lautner, who lives in a wooden cabin in Wales, had a childhood fascination with guns and loved the legend of Colt creating a wooden revolver in order to get a patent for his invention. The seed for  "Road to Reckoning" was "What type of man could walk into a room filled with armed murderers with only a wooden gun?"

"Road to Reckoning" is a most unusual combination of fast-moving action, compelling characters, rich historical detail, and literary language. It was a February Book Club selection by BBC Radio 2 and has garnered much attention - understandably so!  Join us this week for a look at this fascinating era in American history.

CORPORATE INTERESTS BEHIND UKRAINE PUTSCH

Behind the U.S.-backed coup that ousted the democratically-elected president of Ukraine are the economic interests of giant corporations – from Cargill to Chevron – which see the country as a potential “gold mine” of profits from agricultural and energy exploitation, reports JP Sottile.

We'll be focussing on this topic in depth today as JP is getting a lot of interest on his perspective, including an invite to RT and other interviews. Crimea river, we're Putin on the ritz. For links to headlines discussed, click "Read more" below.

KRUU's own Keith DeBoer sat down with Nathan and Rebecca Bliss, the melodic brains and beauty that comprise the soul of Barnaby Bright.  The duo, named after the summer soltice, drove for hours in the early morning (after a late night show) so they could arrive at KRUU's studio in advance of their evening double bill with The Sea, The Sea (opening song before this interview). What ensued was manic conversation, punch drunk laughter and an amazing 2 song, in-studio performance.

Nathan and Rebecca are two modern day troubadours, averaging  40,000 miles a year to places like London, Amsterdam, and New York's Lincoln Center. They've appeared on stage with bands like the Lumineers and Norah Jones. Their multiple guitars, harmonium, banjo, ukulele, floorboard bass, thumb pianos and keyboards yield creative instrumentation, stellar harmonies and a stage show that places them at the top of our short list of Indie-folk duos you do not want to miss.

When The Closet moved from Iowa City, another “go getter” took over the organization Through her efforts we increased the volunteer base and the workings of the closet so it was able to be open more days and be a  greater blessing to the community.  The closet grew to a very nice service where All local families that  wished to donate or participate could.  Any family in need can come.

Projects For All is incredibly grateful to Rebel@Outsider for creating two short films about Projects For All.  Mel and Nic stepped into make two films when there was no resources for Projects for All to tell their story.

"The life story of Son Of God posterJesus is told from his humble birth, through his teachings, crucifixion and ultimate resurrection." Churches who are interested in group reservations with discounted pricing please email orpheum@modernamericancinema.com

Interestingly, as reported in USA Today: "Not since The Ten Commandments and Ben-Hur more than a half-century ago has the film industry bankrolled religious-themed pictures as it has this year, with four big-studio Christian films storming the multiplex, along with dozens of art-house titles." This includes Noah, (out Friday) the story of the apocalyptic flood and the man who navigated it. Directed by Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan) and starring Russell Crowe. The film I'm most anticipating is Heaven Is For Real, starring Greg Kinnear, based on the #1 New York Times best-selling non-fiction book of the same name, about a boy who has visions of heaven in a near-death experience during surgery. Whoosh, it opens April 16th. We may invite Thomas "TJ" Gates in for that show. Thomas has his own amazing story.

We'll talk about that, what we've seen (twice Oscar nominated The Grandmaster) and more on the Filmosophers Movie Talk, with Chris Busch and Bruce Miller, "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions."

Join host, Andrew Tint as he highlights the issues facing Generation Y.

This week Generation whY answers the first question in Human History, "can Milk Duds be made healthy"? Two weeks ago I challenged Fitness Superhero Miss Barbella, aka Tanell Pretorius, that she could not make God's chosen food, Milk Duds, healthy. Since Andrew Tint isn't the end all be all of judging chocolate, we luckily got a man who was, Noah Lion, of Noah's Rockin Raw ChocolateTune in live to find out if Milk Duds are going to be replaced.

Originally from South Africa, Tanell Pretorius moved to London, in the United Kingdom, at the age of 19 to pursue a career in modeling. She worked as a fashion and sports model for seven years and had agents in London, Milan, Hamburg and Cape Town. She was featured in numerous TV commercials from Sony Playstation to Veet Wax. In 2011 she moved to Fairfield, Iowa, to complete an undergraduate degree in Media and Communications at Maharishi University of Management. She has since moved her focus to writing, personal training, and Ayurvedic consultant practice. Her passions are self-development and sharing her knowledge and experience of health and wellness with others. She also writes currently for IOWA SOURCE.

Noah Lion is the Founder and Creative Director of Noah's Rock'n Raw Chocolates! Noah started making Chocolate at the age of 8, and spent his childhood building eco-friendly houses before becoming a full time Raw Chocolatier. When Noah realized how terrible processed sugar is he began making his own raw desserts, quickly founding that after adding all his favorite ingredients together everyone seemed to love his chocolate almost more than he did. From there he started serving chocolate at local markets, stores, and created the online store NoahsRocknRawChocolates.com Noah now lives in Manhattan where he provide Raw Chocolate for thousands of chocolate lovers across the nation.

Pictured at the mike, from left to right, are Mary Ellen Maguire,  Laya Hawthorne and Sallee Garst Haerr.

According to these women, Rae Bird helps to create a safe space for women to develop their creative voice, being supportive and encouraging while pushing her students to go deeper.  The focus is on free writing and sharing the result, not critiquing, although the women acknowledge that there is a time and place for critique groups.  The works the women read on  air are honest, intimate, and remarkably polished considering they are only lightly edited.

Once we have the show archived, we will also post the manuscripts on writersvoices.com so listeners can read them as well. In the meantime, enjoy these wise and melodious voices of Fairfield Women Who Write.

The Grand Budapest Hotel posterWes Anderson's (Moonrise Kingdom, Rushmore) The Grand Budapest Hotel is the film we've most anticipated this year, since seeing the delightful first trailer last December. "A flume ride through the imagination of one of the most creative minds making movies today, and the pleasure curls your toes." "I'm not sure what the formal definition of a masterpiece is, but "The Grand Budapest Hotel" strikes me as something very close."  It begins a two week run at the Fairfield Orpheum Theatre. And there's more: THE GRAND BUDAPEST COSTUME PARTY! The Orpheum will be hosting a costume party with a GBH theme. They want to see 1930's European clothes with bright colors such as reds, purples, violets, and gold. The costume party will take place during the 7:30 & 9:30 shows on Friday night, April 4th. There will also be an encore costume party on Friday, April 11th for both 7:30 & 9:30 showtimes. Research the film to get ideas. "Wes Anderson's captivating 1930s-set caper offers a vibrant and imaginative evocation of an earlier, more elegant era.

Ellis. Who hasn’t heard Ellis. Fairfield has fallen in love with her. She packs Cafe Paradiso every time she plays. The phenomenon is however not unique. She seems to have this effect wherever she goes. Ellis is quietly amassing a loyal following of supporters across the country.

After her Feb 2013 appearance on A Prairie Home Companion, Ellis’ music charted in the Folk Top 100 in iTunes and Folk Top 20 on Amazon.com. She also received hundreds of messages from strangers including, "you exude pure joy", "I heard you and fell in love" and “I was stopped in my tracks by your music and captivating laugh” as well as "Yours is a voice we all need to hear.” Ellis’ performances are transformational; she leaves her audiences better than she finds them, with softened edges & opened hearts.

Join host, Andrew Tint as he highlights the issues facing Generation Y.

This week Generation whY is joined by Tori Porell from Students for Justice in Palestine. The Northeastern organization was recently suspended after handing out mock eviction notices. We bring in Tori Porell to discuss what happened to their organization, where this pressure is coming from, and why getting suspended might have been the best thing for free speech. (Please note: The views expressed in this episode are not those of KRUU-FM.)

Northeastern University Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) works to raise awareness about the plight of Palestinians in the West Bank, Gaza, and inside Israel. Their mission as students living in a democracy is to promote the cause of justice and speak out against oppression and occupation. Their goal is to raise awareness about this issue and provide students with alternative resources of information than the mainstream media. SJP will also work to provide a comfortable environment where students and faculty can discuss and debate their diverse views on the various aspects of Palestinian politics and society. They do not support violence in the region and will highlight the Palestinians; non-violent efforts for peace. SJP supports and engages in the Global Boycott, Divestment, and Sanction (BDS) campaign and believe this it is the fundamental course of action necessary for a just peace. They hope that one day Palestinians will be free from occupation and will be able to determine their own fate as an independent nation living peacefully with its neighbors.

If you haven't had a chance to see The Grand Budapest Hotel yet, you're in luck. The Grand Budapest Hotel posterIt's been held over for another week at the Orpheum Theatre. We've seen it, Chris twice, and it's delightful. The critics consensus: "Typically stylish but deceptively thoughtful, The Grand Budapest Hotel finds Wes Anderson (Moonrise Kingdom; Rushmore) once again using ornate visual environments to explore deeply emotional ideas." 

If anyone can get me to watch a vampire film, it's Jim Jarmusch (Ghost Dog- The Way Of The Samurai). His latest Only Lovers Left Alive is getting good reviews. "...functioning beautifully as both an inventory of Jarmusch's literary, philosophical, and musical interests, and a larger comment on the follies of human existence. One of the best films of 2014."  

We'll talk about that, more new releases, what we've seen and more, on Filmosophers Movie Talk, with Chris Busch & Bruce Miller, "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions."

No Better Time

Our second guest, Molly Knight Raskin, is a journalist and former writer/producer for the NewsHour with Jim Lehrer. You may never have heard of her subject, Danny Lewin, but you will wonder why not. Danny grew up in the US and Israel, became a member of an elite counterterrorism unit in Israel, came to MIT to study abstract math, and co-founded one of the early dot-com companies that tranformed the internet. And, he was most likely the first victim of the 9/11 attacks when he was fatally stabbed while attempting to stop the terrorists on one of the planes that flew into the World Trade Center. The book is titled "No Better Time."

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.

The well reviewed animated film Mr Peabody & Sherman starts Friday at the Fairfield Heaven Is For Real posterOrpheum Theatre. "A smart, funny and beautifully designed feature" - N.Y. Post. This is fun for kids and the adults that remember the Mr. Peabody and Sherman segments on The Rocky & Bullwinkle Show. The Book Thief is showing free at the FF library Friday evening.
 
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

Peter KornThis week's Writer's Voices interview is in memory of Monica's father and Caroline's husband, John Lefever Herr, who passed away almost 33 years ago at the very young age of 49.

Why you may ask?  Because among his many interests, one of his foremost passions was woodworking.  Like our guest, Peter Korn, John Herr attempted to make a living making fine furniture, although he started about 15 years earlier. Unlike Korn, Herr was not able to make a career out of it.  Being the provider for five children may have have had something to do with that!

John Herr

"Why We Make Things and Why It Matters" is part memoir, part history of the Arts and Crafts movements and its lasting impact on how we view craft, and part philosphy.  Not only does Peter Korn remind me of my father, but he also reminds me of one my father's favorite authors, Eric Sloane, author of many books, chief among them "A Reverence for Wood," on the history and philosophy of woodworking.  

This photo is from a newspaper article showing a miniature table that John Herr made for the Armstrong Cork Co of Lancaster, PA for a display at Rockefeller Plaza during the 1964 World's Fair. 

Join us on Writers' Voices this week for unique perspective on working with your hands, as we speak with Peter Korn, master craftsman, writer and educator.

Tim's Vermeer posterWe've talked about being in the golden age for documentary films. Tim's Vermeer is prime example and it starts Friday at the Orpheum Theatre. "Tim Jenison, a Texas based inventor attempts to solve one of the greatest mysteries in all art: How did 17th century Dutch master Johannes Vermeer ("Girl with a Pearl Earring") manage to paint so photo-realistically - 150 years before the invention of photography?" "A movie for people who like to think, who like to ponder the big questions surrounding art and the act of creation." "The result astonishes. A fascinating, funny and inspiring story." 

The bawdy comedy Neighbors, starring Seth Rogen, Zac Efron & Rose Byrne opens at the Ottumwa 8 and wide Friday. Getting good reviews, if it wasn't R rated I'd say it could compete with Spiderman's second weekend for top box office.

Thomas "TJ" Gates, my son Shane (15) and I will see Heaven Is For Real in Ottumwa Thursday. It's based on the true story of a near-death experience. Thomas had a profound NDE and I anticipate an interesting conversation afterward! Also, we're into the month of August in our summer movie preview. This includes Luc Besson's Lucy, starring Scarlett Johansson. An intriguing premise: "It's the story of this girl who was using 10 percent of her brain capacity, and goes to using 100 percent in a couple of days, and what this does to her as a person." - Luc Besson. All 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. "If heaven is for real, wouldn't we live different lives?"- H.I.F.R.

Craig Nelson How much interesting conversation Age of Radianceabout books and writing can one squeeze into an hour of live radio?  This week on Writers' Voices we are trying for the maximum.  At 1 pm Friday (rebroadcast at 8 am Monday) we welcome New York Times bestselling author Craig Nelson with his latest, "The Age of Radiance: The Epic Rise and Dramatic Fall of the Atomic Age." Nelson begins with an unknown German physicist working in a "Frankenstein-style lab" in the 1800's, and carries us through the fascinating lives of the Curies, Enrico Fermi, and Edward Teller, clear up to the modern nuclear disasters. Let me just say about this book - I had no idea that learning about science could be so intriguing!  Nelson's previous books include "Rocket Men" and "Thomas Paine: Enlightenment, Revolution, and the Birth of Modern Nations."

From science, we turn to the spiritiual. For our second half-hour, Monica and Caroline will be Laura Weinbergjoined by local creative Laura Goldman Weinberg, who will be presenting her inspired book "I AM:365 Inspirational Messages from the Great I AM" along with four booklets and a CD of nondemoninational hymns, at Revelations Cafe in Fairfield on Saturday, May 17.  Laura's expression of her inner voice cover a full range of forms, from devotional messages to poetry, children's stories to music.

Thomas "TJ" Gates will guest co-host this weekend. We'll talk about Heaven Is For The Lunchbox posterReal, the true story of a near-death experience. It was great to see it with Thomas, who will relate it to his own profound NDE. It's held over for a 4th big week at the Ottumwa 8, which will also be stompin big-time with Godzilla. It's getting good buzz: "opens with a bang and concludes with an exhilarating roar" and we're excited to see it.

The Orpheum Theatre is offering three films this week: from India, The Lunchbox, from France, Bicycling With Moliere and Under The Skin held over for the late show. Our friend and fellow film-fan Ken Chawkin asked a few weeks ago if the Orpheum could get it, and here it is. This well reviewed film sounds like a must-see: "A mistaken delivery in Mumbai's famously efficient lunchbox delivery system connects a young housewife to an older man in the dusk of his life, as they build a fantasy world together through notes in the lunchbox." "What do we live for? is the question that pops up in The Lunchbox, a romance set in Mumbai. The film, a first feature from Ritesh Batra, aims to offer a meaningful answer: We live, ideally, for love." "A feast of delights, one of the best stories about the connection between food and love the movies have ever seen."

We'll talk about this and more, on the Filmosophers, "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions." Fridays at 12:30 PM, again Sunday morning 11:30. "Sometimes the wrong train takes you to the right destination." - Saajan, The Lunchbox

Beth deeply reveres pie's community-building aspects while eschewing contemporary stipulations that frighten modern bakers.

Take it from the baker who made Steven Speilberg coconut cream pie, Dick Van Dyke strawberry rhubarb, and Barbra Steisand lemon meringue: baking pie can be simple and fun. Becoming a confident pie baker could lead you to greater adventures. Find out how on The Studio with Cheryl and Beth Howard this week.

The number one movie in the world comes to the Orpheum Friday: X-Men: Days Of X-Men: Days Of Future Past posterFuture Past. Come see what all the fuss is about. "Step up, cynics, and see the summer 2014 blockbuster that gets damn near everything right."- Peter Travers, "Rolling Stone"

There will be a special Monday night showing of the Oscar nominated short subject documentary Prison Terminal: The Last Days Of Private Jack Hall.  Director Edgar Barens will be here to introduce the film. Jennifer Hamilton will tell us more on the show. "Prison Terminal draws from footage shot over a six-month period behind the walls of the Iowa State Penitentiary and provides a fascinating, poignant account of how the hospice experience can profoundly touch even the forsaken lives of the incarcerated."  "The film is most moving as a case study of a decorated WWII vet and German POW who killed his late son’s drug dealer. He’s a tough bird and so are the volunteers, convicted murderers all, who care for him in his final illness, but “Prison Terminal” turns out to be a profoundly tender experience." - Ty Burr, "The Boston Globe". “When I started hospice I thought it would be about what I could give to the patient or what I could do for the patient to make them feel better. But when you do what you do; the feeling you get back from them, you can't even describe it. I get the feeling in the inside that for once I’m somebody that nobody thought I could be” -inmate hospice volunteer.

We'll talk about that and more on the Filmosophers movie-appreciator talk, 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. “When you find yourself doing a life sentence, the thought of your death comes to mind. So when the prison administration started looking for guys to do volunteer work in the hospice program, I said  sign me up.”- Prison Terminal

American Taliban

 Sin, and Power Bind Jihadists and the Radical Right." The book is a no holds barred treatise on the similarities between the radical conservatives in our own country and Islamic terrorists. Citing examples of fear of change, heavy use of militaristic solutions, disdain for non-traditional lifestyles, and their ultimate goals of imposing their own worldview on the rest of society.

Markos, the founder and publisher of the progressive community blog Daily Kos, was named "the single most successful entreprenuer of the progressive movement" by the New York Times magazine writer Matt Bai. He served in the U.S. Army from 1989 through 1992. He is also the author of two previous books.

Putting together Great Taste every week always means encountering new people and information.   It's why I love to do the show; I learn more about food and cooking from knowledgeable and terrific farmers, authors, and chefs, then I have the privilege of passing their stories on to you, the listener. 

Robin AsbellRobin Asbell is the author of Gluten Free Pasta, Sweet and Easy Vegan Treats Made with Whole Grains and Natural Sweeteners, Big Vegan, New Vegetarian and The New Whole Grains Cookbook.  Her latest effort is Juice It! Energizing Juices for All Times of Day (Chronicle Books).

What was it that stood out above all other aspects when talking Juice It!with Robin about her new book?  It was her lack of an agenda other than the simple objective of offering people an easy option for imbibing delicious, healthy beverages.  She presents her recipes in a simple, straightforward style fitting all the juices into neat categories-energizing, healing, relaxing, or pure pleasure.  This approach along with added tips makes the book appealing to first-time and habitual juicers.  You can learn more about Robin and follow her blog at http://robinasbell.com/.

Josey Baker BreadAnyone notice the beating bread (wheat) is taking these days?  Everyone seems to either be allergic to it, cutting down to trim the waistline fat, or avoiding it because of adopting the "paleo" diet.  Spend five minutes or less in a room with Josey Baker and I'll bet your resolve would end up in Josey Bakerthe toaster along with a piece of bread.

Josey's book, Josey Baker Bread is an extraordinary cookbook that lesson-by-lesson can make you into a baker.  He is the perfect person to write this type of baking guide because he had no formal experience-not at his mother's apron strings, not at a school or at the hearth of a master baker in France.

They've sued the federal and state governments of the United States to secure climate recovery plans that will restore the balance of Earth's climate systems. ​ The plaintiffs are asking the judges to rule that the atmosphere is a common resource, a public trust, shared by all, and hold the government to its responsibility to protect it for all generations.

Mina Arasteh is an 18 year old from Bay Area, California, and an intern with Kids vs Global Warming/iMatter. Mina coordinates the iMatter Climate Change Council of Youth and has been a member of the Council since 2011. She just finished her freshman year at UC Davis majoring in Environmental Policy Analysis and Planning. Mina has led two youth empowerment marches in San Francisco, drafted a Green Purchasing section of her town's climate action plan, and worked with local city governments on a myriad of environmental actions, ranging from creek pollution, to pesticide management, to divestment from fossil fuel companies. She is a passionate advocate for a sustainable future.

Grant and Garrett Serrels are 18 year old twins from Harrisonburg, VA, leaders with Kids vs Global Warming/iMatter on the iMatter Climate Change Council of Youth. Garrett and Grant are plaintiffs on the federal atmospheric trust lawsuit against five government agencies, asking for a comprehensive and coordinated climate recovery plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by the amount scientists say is necessary to avert disaster. They have led marches and rallies, spoken at their city council, given presentations at schools, met with members of Congress, and walked the C&O Canal Trail from Harper's Ferry to Washington, D.C. as part of the Walk for our Grandchildren last Summer.

Held over at the Orpheum Theatre for a second big week: X-Men: Days Of  X-Men: Days Of Future Past posterFuture Past. "Time travel, Peter Dinklage and 1970s kitsch top a very long list of what makes this such a blast." - LA Times

The two big new releases may expand a developing box office narrative. Beginning in May, all of the summer season's biggest "tentpole" films, including Spider Man, Godzilla and X-Men have only been able to finish number one at the box office their opening weekend. Now, this weeks action blockbuster Edge Of Tomorrow, starring Tom Cruise may not even win it's opening weekend. Edge and Cruise are getting great reviews- "Breathlessly exciting, wildly entertaining, with the kind of smarts, wit, filmmaking and force too many other summer films can only dream of. Cruise delivers a one-man master class in his own fascinatingly protean screen presence. One of the most surprising and satisfying films of the year so far." Also opening is The Fault In Our Stars, based upon the bestselling  young-adult novel by John Green. This is a teen romance film about a couple who meet in a high school cancer support group. Although well reviewed and highly anticipated by fans of the book, normally there's no way this film would do more opening weekend business than the big-budget action thriller Edge Of Tomorrow. But the "tracking" indicates differently. We shall see.

We'll talk about that, other new releases, what we've seen and more on  Filmosophers Movie Talk, 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. "What I am about to tell you sounds crazy, but the longer I talk the more rational it's going to appear." - Edge Of Tomorrow

Join host, Andrew Tint as he highlights the issues facing Generation Y.

This week Generation whY is joined a third time by Nomiki Konst. Andrew and Nomiki will discuss Nomiki's new project, The Accountability Project

The Accountability Project is an organization focused on investigating misconduct in politics and the private sector and holding leaders accountable for their egregious actions. They believe that politicians and CEOs have a duty to act ethically. The  Accountability Project advances its mission using a combination of whistle blowing, investigative research and public awareness campaigns to hold public leaders accountable. America cannot wait for a story to break or a crisis to form for people to become aware of the intolerable behavior by leaders who are making decisions on behalf of the public. The Accountability Project dedicates its resources to informing the public of these bad actors before the crisis hits or story breaks at politically convenient times. Everyone should believe that the fewer bad actors in leadership positions, the healthier the political and business culture become - allowing qualified, ethical leaders to rise up.

Nomiki Konst is a former 2012 Congressional candidate for Arizona's second district. She's an advocate for Government 2.0, civil discourse, millennial politics and equal representation. She is the founder and former Executive Director of Alliance Hollywood, an organization dedicated to training members of the entertainment industry on how to speak civilly about politics. She also helps organizations and companies bridge the divide between Millennials and Baby Boomers and regularly speaks about the new economy being forged by Millennials. Nomiki is active in youth politics as an At-Large member of the DNC Youth Council, former national co-chair of Gen44, New Leaders Council, Running Start and Junior Statesmen. She is also a Partner with the Truman National Security Project.

Opening "on the break" at the Orpheum, certainly the biggest film of the weekend HTTYD2 posterand possibly one of the biggest of the year: How To Train Your Dragon 2. By all accounts, a sequel maybe as good as the original. "Most sequels get made for commercial reasons, whether or not the world needs them. How to Train Your Dragon 2 is a movie the world needs." - Wall Street Journal. "Dragon 2, like The Empire Strikes Back, takes sequels to a new level of imagination and innovation. It truly is a high-flying, depth-charging wonder to behold."- Rolling Stone. "This is a richer story that dares to go darker and is thus more rewarding." - Arizona Republic.

Friday is this month's FREE movie at the Fairfield Library: The Monuments Men, directed by and starring George Clooney, "based on the true story of the greatest treasure hunt in history, an action drama focusing on an unlikely World War II platoon, tasked by FDR with going into Germany to rescue artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves and returning them to their rightful owners."  "This is a sturdy, old-school, big-scale Greatest Generation war movie. It's great escapism." - Minneapolis Star Tribune. Doors open at 7:00, film at 7:30. Organic popcorn and bottled water go for a buck each, helping the library maintain their movies license.

We'll talk about other new releases, the evolving box office story of 2014 and more on the Filmosophers, 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. "Life here is amazing. Dragons used to be a bit of a problem, but now they've all moved in! And with Vikings on the backs of dragons, the world just got a whole lot bigger. - Hiccup, HTTYD2

Curiosity's CatsBruce Joshua Miller has worked in the book industry for thirty-five years, much of it as a sales rep (he was named Publisher's Weekly Sales Rep of the Year in 2013).  Miller previously edited two books and has written for public radio, the Chicago Tribune, and other publications.  In "Curiosity's Cats: Writers on Research" Miller commissioned thirteen authors to write original essays that read like fiction and tell the real story behind the story. More than anything, these fascinating explorations of hands-on research make the case for the importance of libraries and archives even in today's wired world.

Curiosity's Cats was published by the Minnesota Historical Society Press.

Any writer who needs to research (and I think that means every writer), and readers who like to see behind the curtain will definitely want to tune in to this weeks Writers Voices!

Iron Chef WinnersSeveral weeks ago I had the honor of being one of the judges at the final of the Iron Chef competition for upper school students enrolled in an advanced culinary course at the Maharishi School for the Age of Enlightenment (MSAE).  The three winners-Overall Victor-Mickey DeAngelis, Most Creative-Brandon Pratherhuff, and Best Presentation-Davin Titus will join me at KRUU along with their teacher, Laurie Baumann. 

The plan is for the competition to go an extra round as each student will bring a dish to the studio.  Really, I am just looking for more to eat from these talented individuals.  True confession-I wasn't expecting to be blown away by the dishes these guys created during the competition, but it happened.  I'll let them share the details about the ingredients they were given, the rules, and what transpired in the heat of our local kitchen stadium.

As their prize for winning, we went to the Lincoln Wine Bar in Mount Vernon, Iowa, and the boys enjoyed the terrific pizzas turned out by owner Matt Steigerwald and his crew.  As an added bonus, Matt and his wife, Michelle, ate dinner with us, and afterwards he took the budding cooks behind the counter to show them the pizza oven.

How To Train Your Dragon 2 is held over for another big week at the Orpheum. But not as big as I predicted. I confidently said last week HTTYD2 would win the weekend and be one of the top 3-5 box office films of the year. I was wrong about the weekend and may be for the year. 22 Jump Street did roughly 60 million to Dragon's 50. Now, without a major blockbuster opening Friday the industry narrative becomes: who wins this weekend? Which of these sequels will drop the least in their second weekend? Kevin Hart's ("this generation's Eddie Murphy") new release Think Like a Man Too (yet another sequel) is tracking to do well. “It’s a close three-way race for first,” said Phil Contrino, vice president and chief analyst at Box Office.

If “Think Like a Man Too” manages to usurp the crown from last weekend’s champ, “22 Jump Street,” it will be the ninth weekend in a row with a new release at the top of the box office charts. That’s a record in the modern summer blockbuster era. - Variety

We'll cover other new releases, what we've seen and if time permits, more summer movie preview, now in the month of August. We're 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."

His warm voice and reply of "That's ok," to my predicament melted my nervousness. We finished recording 35 minutes later, but it took me several hours to come down from the thrill of that discussion.  I hope you enjoy our talk, and it inspires you to cook at home a bit more.

How did small-town Iowa boy Norman Zierold become a Hollywood biographer, recording the stories of movie moguls, child stars, and famous actors?

Even more exciting than his tales about the many celebrities he's encountered is Norman's own story. Lucky us! Norman's recorded his journey from shelling peas beside cooks in his family's Amana colonies restaurant to rubbing knees with Barbara Walters on TV.

This week on The Studio with Cheryl, Norman discusses the mentors and experiences that inspired his life choices.

Learn about his life and about THAT REMINDS ME, his stream-of-consciousness memoir (and what a consciousness it is!), by tuning in to The Studio with Cheryl and Norman this week.

How did a guy with an MBA from the University of Massachusetts at Amhearst, 4-1/2 years of service doing search & rescue missions for the U.S. Coast Guard, and a stint as Assistant Director of Fiscal Affairs during the earliest days of Maharishi University of Management end up in such a weird profession?

Tune in for a glimpse into the life of a creative, community-minded, unique Iowan entrepreneur.

It's a major weekend for film fans. First, two well reviewed movies come to the Chef posterOrpheum Theatre. One is Chef, directed by & starring Jon Favreau (Swingers, Iron Man 1 & 2) "Favreau has assembled a terrific cast for a foodie road trip that is joyous and revelatory, all set to a great soundtrack". Plus: Obvious Child. "Virtue and vulgarity fight to a draw via a film that should put the vivacious Jenny Slate and director Gillian Robespierre on everyone's indie radar."- Newsday

Also, you need to know about Richard Linklater's "astonishing" latest: Boyhood. "Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Boyhood is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (a breakthrough performance by Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes." So-far there are over 70 reviews on RT, 100% glowingly positive. "I'm not saying Boyhood is the greatest film I've ever seen (although it's up there), but I'm thinking... there's my life before I saw it, and my life now, and it's different. I know movies can do something that just last week I didn't." - David Edelstein, CBS Sunday Morning. "The best movie of the year, a four-star game-changer that earns its place in the cultural time capsule."- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

Plus (how exciting :) Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes "the first big tent-pole film of 2014 that nails everything from start to finish, blending thoughtful allegory, meaningful science fiction and dazzling action spectacle without a hitch."- NPR. Fridays free film at the FF library (7:30) is About Time, Directed by Richard Curtis (Love Actually). "Beautifully told, wonderfully acted and touching enough to bring viewers to tears." We'll talk all this 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. -I'm f-in lost! -That's a good place to start. Chef

Letters of NoteIf you have been listening to Writers' Voices awhile, you probably know that co-host Caroline Kilbourn is single-handedly attempting to keep alive the lost art of letter-writing. You know, the kind written on paper (often by hand, with a pen), and actdually mailed?  with a stamp?  Well, perhaps not single-handedly, since the people she writes to often write back!

Shaun UsherAnd there's also Shaun Usher, whose belief in "the importance and unrivalled charm of old-fashioned correspondence" led him to start a website in 2009 called lettersofnote.com. There are currently over 900 "letters, postcards,telegrams, faxes and memos" featured on the site, written by people both famous and ordinary. From this intriguing archive, Usher selected more than 125 letters to feature in this beautifully designed anthology.  As one critic wrote, this books is "the literary equivalent of a box of chocolates - bite-sized and pure addictive pleasure."

Join us this week on Writers' Voices to learn how Usher finds the letters, how he chose which ones to include in the book, and the process of creating such a beautiful work of literary history.

We've championed the fact that we're in a golden age of documentaries. There's Finding Vivian Maier posteran intriguing example opening at the Orpheum Theatre Friday: Finding Vivian Maier. "Who is Vivian Maier? Now considered one of the 20th century's greatest street photographers, Vivian Maier was a mysterious nanny who secretly took over 100,000 photographs that went unseen during her lifetime. Since buying her work by chance at auction, amateur historian John Maloof has crusaded to put this prolific photographer in the history books. Maier's strange and riveting life and art are revealed through never-before-seen photographs, films, and interviews with dozens who thought they knew her." - IFC. This is getting great reviews: "A penetrating exploration of the link between art and obsession, and a major discovery of a 20th-century master." - Boston Herald "This may be the most pleasurable 83 minutes you will spend in a theater this year." - Minn. Star Tribune. "An exciting electric current of discovery runs through "Finding Vivian Maier," a documentary about a street photographer who never exhibited her work." - N.Y. Times.

As for the new releases, our interest in the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is not in the karate-trained amphibian's battles, but the battle to see if the film's opening will do more business than Guardians Of The Galaxy's second weekend, which made the most money ever for an August debut. The "tracking" is very close. For us, that's the real battle... :) We'll discuss that, 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. "It all starts so innocently for John Maloof when he bids on a random selection of photographs, which turn out to yield a fabulous collection from a photographer he had never heard of before... Vivian Maier."

Tune in to The Studio with Cheryl this week for Wayne's insightful, often comic musings on the source of his fiction and the origins of creativity.

Chris ChristieDON'T MISS THIS INTERVIEW!! At 3pm 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 Paul Fauersogovernorship 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.

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.

This week's three tiers include 'never remember', the economy doesn't suck, it just sucks for you', and 'you gotta have faith to save faith'.

Thirteen years into the global war on terror and it appears we all feel less safe now. Should we forget or remember what we've done or not done in the ensuing years? Well, we'll take you on a guided tour of that very issue.

We were delighted to learn Boyhood is held over at the Orpheum Theatre. Boyhood Boyhood posteris 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

Esther Ehrlich, Author of NestWhy 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.

I Knead My Mommy Turning grief into a wildly popular, hilarious series of pet poetry books is one of Francesco Marciuliano's many accomplishments. His latest book, I Knead My Mommy and Other Poems by Kittens was just released by Chronicle Books. It follows two other volumes, I Could Chew on This and Other Poems by Dogs and I Could Pee on This and Other Poems by Cats, which made it onto many best-seller lists. Francesco dedicated his first pet poetry book, I Could Pee on This, to his cats, Natasha and Boris. After they died, he coped with losing them by writing humorous poetry from their point-of-view.  

Where does the creativity to spin sadness into joy come from? Francesco (who's also a cartoonist and playwright) employs several tactics to avoid writers block and facilitate creative expression. For insights into the creative process of a very talented guy, tune in this week to The Studio with Cheryl and Francesco Marciuliano.

The Tastemakers coverAfter 25 years in the toy and novelty business I still scratch my head thinking about the items that capture the arms, hands, feet, and minds of kids and the wallets of parents.  Some goofy products like pogs enjoyed a brief, but meteoric rise in popularity before vanishing.  Beanie Babies were the rage for awhile, and sports cards had their moment.  Other franchises-Lego, Barbie, Pokemon, Pooh, Star Wars-made an indelible imprint on the culture, and continue to find avid consumers despite the changes in technology and lifestyle that have occurred in our society. 

Why did Cabbage Patch dolls become so popular?  How do collectible card games like Magic:  The Gathering, Pokemon, and Yu-Gi-Oh! entrance enough players that Wal-Mart devotes 18 feet of shelf space to them?

Starting Friday at the Orpheum Theatre, The Trip To Italy. "Michael Winterbottom'sThe Trip To Italy poster largely improvised 2010 film, The Trip, took comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon- or semifictionalized versions thereof- on a restaurant tour around northern England.

In this witty and incisive follow-up, Winterbottom reunites the pair for a new culinary road trip, retracing the steps of the Romantic poets' grand tour of Italy while indulging in sparkling banter. They enjoy mouthwatering meals in gorgeous settings from Liguria to Capri, while riffing on subjects as varied as Batman's vocal register, the artistic merits of "Jagged Little Pill," and, of course, the virtue of sequels."

"At its heart, The Trip to Italy is more than just a travelogue about food. It's about friendship and the appetite for experience we all share." - EW

The new releases include director David Fincher's highly anticipated Gone Girl, starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike "The thriller of the year, a master-class in pacing and tension from one of the great American directors." - Austin American-Statesman
We'll talk about that 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. - "Where do you stand on Michael Bublé?" - "On his windpipe." - The Trip To Italy
