B.B. Riding with the King
I started a show Thursday at 2 PM that I am finishing Saturday morning at 2 AM. You can expect two hours of some of the best romantic music available anywhere. Well, actually more like my favorite tunes. There will also be readings and original poetry. It is somewhat of a departure from the norm. That may be what you have come to expect with this show, anyway. A high level of unexpected pleasure- life is that good. Enjoy. Cool Breeze

Henry W. Vinson is the former funeral director for W. W. Chambers Funeral Home, who also owned and operated the largest gay escort service in Washington, DC.
His book "Confessions of a DC Madam: The Politics of Sex, Lies, and Blackmail" written with Nick Bryant, is a firsthand account of how public officials and other well-connected individuals have been compromised or blackmailed by their sexual improprieties, related to the author’s time running the largest gay escort service in Washington, DC. This fshocking facet of government malfeasance reveals the integral role blackmail plays in American politics and the unbelievable lengths the government perpetrates to silence those in the know.
Enjoy a free-wheeling discussion with soil microbiologist Dr. Elaine Ingham, president of the Soil Food Web, who is teaching her annual LIFE IN THE SOIL course for students in the Sustainability Department at Maharishi Univesrsity of Management.
Her approach to unleashing the regenerative power of the soil is one of the most inspiring things I've ever heard.
Also, joining the discussion is Jimmy Sinton, founder of the Fair Carbon Exchange, an organization looking to connect carbon offsets with carbon credits for farmers and others.
On the KRUU airwaves and streaming Wednesday, May 13 at 7 pm I chat with restaurateur/author Joanne Chang about her new book, Baking with Less Sugar followed by a discussion with Francis Thicke, owner of Radiance Dairy and member of the National Organic Standards Board (NOSB). This show will be rebroadcast Friday, May 15 at 7 am.
The Soil Food Web was created by Dr. Elaine Ingham, who was my guest on last week's show. If you missed the broadcast, I'll put a link to it in the next post. It's critical that everyone understands the need to respect the soil on this planet.
Hole in the Wall in Des Moines (1501 Grand) is one of my favorite spots anywhere to enjoy a meal full of unexpected tastes and varied textures. It was fun to talk last week with the genius behind the always-changing menu, Zach Gutweiler, and savor every bite of his beer can quail, two kinds of Chinese buns, asparagus, brussels sprouts with vegan chorizo, and his take on the classic fudgsicle. Plan your trip to coincide with when he opens at 6:30 pm. He's even enhanced the Hole in the Wall dining experience by adding TV trays to go along with the plastic chairs!
The Golden Age is being generated by the Sacred Feminine, as the "previously suppressed goddess energy is emerging through humans and various institutions across the planet" (Writings From The One: 108 Insights From The Divine). One way this is expressed in movies is the rise of the feminine warrior. Emily Blunt in Live Die Repeat: The Edge Of Tomorrow a recent example. The great Charlize Theron takes it to another level in the ferociously awesome Mad Max: Fury Road. A kinetic, hallucinatory, boldly feminist chase flick that, with its vibrant color palette, harrowing stunt work and show-don't-tell style of yarn-spinning, leaves every Marvel movie and every Fast & Furious in its irradiated dust. - NPR A gleefully violent and improbably feminist phantasmagoria that turns epic road rage and long stretches of vehicular omnicide into an eye-boggling joy ride. - Wall Street Journal. Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron make a dynamite team, but Theron is the film's bruised heart and soul. So get prepped for a new action classic. You won't know what hit you. - Rolling Stone This spectacularly great reboot is surprisingly owned not by Hardy, who is fine, but by Charlize Theron. - N.Y. Post The shock, really, is how tender Mad Max: Fury Road ultimately becomes. The film just wraps that tenderness in one of the most epic action extravaganzas of recent years. It's enough to renew your faith in movies. - Boston Globe
We'll talk about that, other new releases, including Slow West "an inventive treat for fans of the Western" 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. "Wanna get through this? Let's go." - Charlize Theron, Mad Max: Fury Road
Lets run through a bunch of songs this week that have everything to do with love. In the course of a long and happy life I have come to realize that the proper context surrounding a series of moments can alter the outcome of your efforts favorably. Which is to say if you want to get further faster, live into it, get help, and relish the challenge. So we come to a recollection of the last 61 years, and acknowledgement of the blessed week that is transpiring. If you would like to celebrate with us, tune in at 2 PM Thursday and let the music move you. The G Man
