As a young man in Jefferson County, I spent many an hour walking behind the lawnmower. My folks had a very large yard. Even with a mower that cut a 35" swath, it still took somewhere in the area of four hours to mow the entire farm property. These days I live in the city. My yard (even though it's a double lot) is the size of a postage stamp by comparison. And I'm dumb enough to use one of those "Leave It To Beaver" push mowers. No gasoline. Just brute muscle. And it still takes me little more than thirty minutes to mow my property(45 minutes if I edge with the weed whacker). Some day I will be an old retired guy with time on my hands. Then I will spend countless hours trimming my yard. Until that time I will exert just enough effort to keep the city off my back.
The Memorial Day weekend's big films include X-Men: Apocalypse and Alice Through The Looking Glass. We'll talk about that and other new releases, but Chris and I would like to talk more about one of our fave films of the year so far: Michael Moore's Where To Invade Next. "An expansive, hilarious, and subversive comedy in which the Academy Award-winning director confronts the most pressing issues facing America today and finds solutions in the most unlikely places. The creator of Fahrenheit 9/11 and Bowling For Columbine has returned with an epic movie that’s unlike anything he has done before—an eye-opening call to arms to capture the American Dream and restore it in, of all places, America." “Michael Moore in a cheerier and more optimistic look at what America could be doing right, rather than what it’s doing wrong” - Chris Busch. I saw Michael Moore's consciousness seeing a better way for America to live, then using his award-winning filmosophical skills to show how other countries are doing just that. "One of the most genuinely and valuably patriotic films any American has ever made... Optimistic and affirmative, it rests on one challenging but invaluable idea: we can do better." — Godfrey Cheshire, rogerebert dot com
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. "My mission: I will invade countries with names I can mostly pronounce, take the things we need from them and bring it all back home. Because we have problems no army could solve..." - Michael Moore, Where To Invade Next "An act of guerrilla humanity" - BBC
This week's feature is the Grammy Award winning album:
The album feels like a familiar classic, one that draws heavily on the late-Seventies sound Stapleton adores. -- Rolling Stone
A little bit about a lot of things for my next two hour show: Bob Dylan kicks off with My Back Pages, hence the title of the setlist. Hour one highlights include Royal Atlas, The Punch Brothers, and U2. In hour two I have a jazz version of the song Queen of The Highway by The Doors. A bit of a rarity. Plus an extended version of the classic Jefferson Airplane song Pretty As You Feel by David Crosby and the PERRO session folks. Quite a jam. Kick back, relax, put the headphones on and tune in to another fabulous commercial free playlist. The G Man

Music from Eric Clapton's new CD and Sawyer Fredricks (Voice winner). Sarah Jarosz who will play Englert on July 14 offers tracks from her upcoming CD release Undercurrent.
