The Filmosophers movie talk

It's set up to be a very intriguing show. Regular listeners have heard us mention Blade Runner posterMark Cole and his awesome home theater several times. Chris's long time friend and my great neighbor has a home theater system that, among other things includes speakers he has made that have literally jingled my bells while experiencing incredible films like Mad Max: Fury Road (Filmosopher's pick for Best Picture, 2015) on his system. Last week he turned us onto the 4K restoration of Blade Runner: The Final Cut on Blu-ray. This version makes fantastically clear that Blade Runner is one of the greatest films ever made (including whatever version you see, IMO. Fellow B. R. aficionado Ted Burghoff and myself always enjoyed the original release that included narration by star Harrison Ford who didn't want to do it). Spearheaded by the great Director Ridley Scott, Blade Runner is brilliant filmmaking on every level, including an electronic audio/ music soundtrack by Vangelis that was holographically experienced on Mark's 4K Dolby Atmos Blu Ray. We're happy he's agreed to join us to discuss this, his system and more.
Also very intriguing: Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan, Noah, Pi) has made a polarizing new film titled "mother!" "Critics Consensus: There's no denying that mother! is the thought-provoking product of a singularly ambitious artistic vision, though it may be too unwieldy for mainstream tastes. - RT. Brother Chris has experienced it and wrote: "I will be discussing how enthralled I was with this moviegoing experience." This is exciting.

We look forward to hearing this and more on the Filmosophers with Chris Busch & Bruce Miller, "where we give our filmosophy on the movies and have filmosophical discussions."

If only you could see what I have seen with your eyes. I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate... All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in rain. - Roy Batty, Blade Runner

Making A Way Out of No Way

ShirtThe next three hours of interesting rock and roll are right around the corner for you Thursday at 2 PM. I like the turn of phrase above, it speaks to me in a sort of 'never give in' way. And lets face it, some days require a lot more energy to get through than others. Listening to music can moderate a stressful experience, as well as enhance a pleasant one. So we start with Good Advice from The Growlers, and Follow Your Way by The Holydrug Couple. I will have two songs by The Beatles and The Moody Blues, as well as The Bee Gees and Blue Oyster Cult. From the sixties to 2016, you can count on hearing some great old singles, and some obscure rock, and then everything in-between. Gonna be hot, might as well enjoy a cool bunch of tunes. The G Man

Vermont, Thailand, and Paris-We Move Around on this Week's Show

Ethan WestI love real maple syrup and maple sugar, and, what's crazy is most consumers, perhaps as high as 7 out of 10, have only tasted the artificial brands that are on every store shelf, and served in most "restaurants."  As our guest and maple syrup maker Ethan West pointed out during our discussion, some manufacturers and eating spots mix a bit of real maple syrup into their corn syrup and artificially-flavored product.  Buyer beware because they can say with a straight face that it contains "real" maple syrup.  CLICK READ MORE!

Rainbow Rider Update

RRJust got the playlist in from last weeks show, where you heard the entire release by The Vice Barons called Friends in Low Places. This weekend I am playing the album called Evil Wind Is Blowing by Denny King. Prior to that you will hear live music from Loggins & Messina and Third Ear Band, plus The Asteroid No. 4 doing a cover of a famous Spacemen 3 song. More updates this weekend. Cool Breeze

I will be spending some time very soon in the Twin Cities of Minnesota. That's where my best pal Richard lives, breathes, thrives and survives. Richard grew up in Jefferson County at the same time that I did. Any time I hang with Richard, I get more stories that I have forgotten about our time in Fairfield in the 1970s. That means more fodder for The Feed Store. Be listening to future episodes for the stories that we whomp up. Thursdays at 10am central time and sundays at noon central time. It's worth the effort. 

Student Farm/Andrew/KrisLast Saturday Fairfield was a destination on an unusual road tour.  The group comprised Rick Polito, Editor-in-Chief of the Nutrition Business Journal, Bethany Davis, Director of Regulatory Affairs at Foodstate/Megafood, Alan Lewis, Director of Government Affairs and Food and Agriculture Policy at Natural Grocers, and organic aronia berry farmer Andrew Pitz of Sawmill Hollow farm in Missouri Valley, Iowa. They are currently on a five-day trek from western Iowa to Baltimore, MD, probing the complicated relationships between farmers, producers, the natural products industry, and the US government's agricultural policies. Read the article about their experiences in Fairfield here, and listen to my interview with the group, when they stopped by the KRUU studio to chat.  CLICK READ MORE!
