If you haven't had a chance to see The Grand Budapest Hotel yet, you're in luck. It'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." Fridays at 12:30 PM CDT, again Sunday mornings, 11:30. The Grand Budapest Hotel "This is about as fun as movie-going gets." - Anthony Morris, The Vine

this week there's one beat.... one hour, one beat .... from around the world....
maybe you feel like moving .... maybe you need to get some dishes put away .... or maybe it's been a long day and you need to rest your body while your head does the dancing....
the beat begins at the start of my show .... and pulses for an hour without missing a step .... while the sounds and vibes take you through egypt, india, saudi arabia, israel, greece, spain, and venice beach....
the songs are here.
Two items of noteworty information for you. 1) We will listen to Pre Language in its entirety by a band named Disappears. 2) I have four long songs by various bands; No Escape by Chromatics, Empire of The Sun by Hapshash and The Colored Coat, Kate and The King by The Asteroid No. 4, and Driftin'and Driftin' by The Paul Butterfield Blues Band. It's a warm, beautiful night for music. Cool Breeze
Mary Gauthier's new album Live At Blue Rock is our feature this week and its a dandy. Gauthier (pronounced 'Go-shay') is an acclaimed Nashville singer-songwriter who has been lauded by Bob Dylan among others.
"Often described as a ‘truth teller’ rather than just a singer-songwriter Mary Gauthier has always chose to write about challenging and harrowing subjects across her career but they only reflect the life she led and the people she encountered along the way."
Her new album contains some of her best songs from the past ten years. They are recorded live with verve, haunting vocals and gut wrenching fiddle treatments by Tania Elizabeth. We'll also hear songs from Ellis who will be apearing at Cafe Paradiso this Saturday night.
Other than spending time with family members, the most fulfilling moments for me are when I get to cook, talk, and eat with friends. I hope you enjoy listening in on the GREAT TASTE conversation this week with Sabitha Sawhney, assistant professor of business at Maharishi University of Management, and proprietor/chef of Sabi's Cafe, and Sonia Vera, a courtroom interpreter who helped us learn some basic Columbian dishes.
Sabitha and Sonia's food and philosophies of cooking are both dear to my heart and stomach. Thanks to Dori Rector and my wife, too for helping out in the kitchen. Dori's Colombian bean soup was extraordinary. The link to the basic recipe is below, but she added a bit more garlic and salt, a leek, and substituted three whole chipotle chilis for the ham hocks.
I am living large, and you will be too when you join me for Centripetal Sounds Thursday. I am jumping all over some new music by Diane Coffee, The Woolen Men, and Gap Dream. Also in store for you: A record called Power Plant that recently sold at auction for 676 dollars, and another well-known disc that went for 399. Canadian band Kings Verses plays, and I will have an interesting song sandwich for those of you that are hungry for great music. Also some old White Stripes as we wait for the new Jack White album to land. My fantasy is the perfect two hour show. This may be it, you never know. The G Man
