An Ambush of Ear Candy

RR14 songs in the realm of the progressive for your enjoyment this weekend. A triple shot of new music for the show by the band Creme Soda. Can and Miles Davis stretching out and delivering a giant sound you can swim around in. Songs I downloaded just for this show by Tom Petty, Fleetwood Mac, and The Troggs. Also, my favorite songs by Marc Benno and The Happenings. All this, and the final Ambush song, all the best to you from Cool Breeze.

The Game's Afoot with Sherlockian Novelist Bonnie MacBird

Art in the BloodSherlock Holmes seems to be having a resurgence, and no one is happier about that than me, unless it is Bonnie MacBird, an avowed Sherlockian enthusiast.  "Art in the Blood" is the first in a series of Sherlock Holmes adventures that Bonnie is writing for Harper Collins.Bonnie MacBird

Bonnie has a successful career in the entertainment industry, as a screenwriter, film story editor, and actor.  Her first screenplay became the Disney movie "Tron."  She teaches screenwriting at UCLA, has won three Emmy awards for documentary filmmaking, and has produced and acted in numerous plays, musicals and films.

"Art in the Blood" is written in the style of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, set in Victorian times, but with a somewhat more vulnerable hero than the original.  Join us on Writers' Voices to learn more about creating new adventures for an old hero.

The Filmosophers movie talk

We're thrilled to report that Kubo And The Two Strings is opening regionally, including Ottumwa and especially at the Main Street Cinema Theatre in Mt. Pleasant. It's the only theater regionally where you can see it in 3D. Many critics have said 3D enhances the stop-motion action, including your's truely. It's a unique animated audio/visual expression of the Ancient Hero's Journey, an epic story and must-see for any film fan. We highly encourage seeing Kubo in 3D and the Main Street venue is one of the nicest renovated retro theaters in the area, with more eclectic food choices than most.Kubo And The Two Strings poster 

Kubo And The Two Strings: Arguably one of the most creative and visionary films of its kind, dating back perhaps to Disney in the late 30s and Pixar in the mid-90s. - New York Observer. It's a classic hero's journey full of action and adventure, but it's also an intimate fable about love and loss, magic and memory. - Christy Lemire, RogerEbert.com. The first and last things to be said in this limited space about Kubo and the Two Strings are that it's a showcase for some of the most startlingly beautiful animation in recent and not so recent memory. - Wall Street Journal.

Despite a traditional-seeming quest for a suit of armor and a sword, the film's intrinsic message is all about the transformative powers of music and love. It's a movie the whole family can rock out to. - New York Post. I cannot stress enough how truly stunning the brilliant visuals are in this movie. - Chicago Sun Times. An eye-popping delight that deftly blends colorful folklore with gorgeous, origami-informed visuals to immersive effect. - Hollywood Reporter. Be prepared to cry: it's rare that animation can stir up such deep emotion, but it'll happen, sometimes more than once. - New York Daily News. Staggeringly beautiful and immensely true, this is the best animated film of 2016. - IndieWire.

We'll talk about this, other 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. -Do you ever say anything encouraging? -I encourage you not to die. - Kubo and The Two Strings
