The Filmosophers Movie Talk

movie theaterAces are wild on Friday, 11-11-11. Bet the high road and win-win-win. It's also time to check out films releasing this holiday season. We talked with Ottumwa 8 Manager Vickie Schleif about the new movies. We'll play sound bites from that interview and pass on her thoughts about the state of the movie industry, including the latest trend of film companies making available recently released films as pay-per-view at home. 

Also hear about holiday films The Filmosophers are anticipating, this weekend's new releases, what we've seen and more. We're The Filmosophers Movie Talk show, with Chris Busch & Bruce Miller- "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions." Friday during lunch at 12:30 PM, rebroadcast Sunday at noon. Live stream

Like white light through a prism, the morning show has a myriad of bright colored sounds. First up is the Sunfighter album by Paul Kantner & Grace Slick. I like everything about this release, coming right on the heels of Blows Against The Empire. And, the session musicians read like a whos-who of San Francisco rock stars, with the likes of Jerry Garcia, David Crosby et al. The song Diana was an inspiration for naming my daughter. Then we have Their Satanic Majesties Second Request, by The Brian Jonestown Massacre. A. Newcomb, Matt Hollywood and a revolving crew of wierd, brilliant musicians with just another  masterpiece in their catalogue. I use the song 'All Around You' as my theme song for Centripetal Sounds. It pretty much sums up what is good about rock and roll in four minutes. And I should have got this into the queue sooner, although I have played most every song on here individually on other shows. Cool Breeze

GREAT TASTE Presents HighFiveLabs Matt Bardin on Food Apps

I'm always thinking about fMatt Bardinood which is why this little excerpt from author A. A. Milne is one of my favorite quotes:  "'When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,' said Piglet at last, 'what's the first thing you say to yourself?'
"'What's for breakfast?' said Pooh.  'What do you say, Piglet?'
"'I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?' said Piglet.
Pooh nodded thoughtfully.  "It's the same thing," he said.

-A. A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh (1926)

Our guest on this week's show, Matt Bardin, is the co-president of HighFiveLabs. His company creates "apps" those fascinating bits of software that help perform daily miracles on your smart phone and tablet.

The year 1998 seems like it just went by on the calendar, but it's been 13 long years...

That was the year Barenaked Ladies wowed everyone with "One week." Well, I still go wow, and also with Lenny Kravitz and Joy Drop's brilliant "Beautiful." First I play some hits; and then I get spacey ... with the French duo Air [pictured], the English duo Shpongle, and American guitar soloist Buckethead.

The full playlist is here.



Sheila E talks with

Mike about all manner of things:

Family E, the glamorous life, and beyond.

Don't miss it!!!
