RRThe four artists listed above are dominating the show this weekend, along with a comedy skit by The Firesign Theatre. Full album side-length cuts will take you quickly through the show. J. K. & Co. is a new addition to my collection even though it was produced in 1968. The album, called Suddenly One Summer, is a candidate for record of the year in my mind. Two other items of note: I found an alternate version of a Turtles song I love, and I have a track from a recent compilation by Lee Hazelwood that is very cool. Lots of other great music, check the playlist. Cool Breeze

The Filmosophers movie talk

"Awards season is ready to kick into high gear.  La La Land poster

November and December mark the months when movie studios bring out their prestige products for awards consideration, joining already-released contenders such as Sully and Hell or High Water. Barry Jenkins' Moonlight, another likely competitor, arrives in theaters Friday.

Here are 10 movies you'll want to catch that could be on their way to Oscar glory on Feb. 26. (Many release dates are New York and Los Angeles only; those films expand nationwide later.)" - USA Today

Hear about this intriguing list on the Filmosophers with Chris Busch & Bruce Miller "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions."

The documentary film Hamilton’s America will show on PBS Friday night at 9:00.

"Discovering the next big thing is easy when it's created by your friend. That’s how director Alex Horwitz managed to get a camera on Lin-Manuel Miranda, the writer and star of Broadway super-smash Hamilton, as he was conceiving the musical in 2014. It was impossible for Horwitz, his college roommate at Wesleyan, to know just how big the musical was going to be. But he knew it was going to be something.

“When (Miranda) said he was going to do this thing about Alexander Hamilton, I knew he wasn’t talking about doing a hip-hop Schoolhouse Rock,” Horwitz says. “I said, ‘Look I don’t care where you’re going with this, I think we’ve got a compelling story.' The resulting documentary is PBS' Hamilton’s America (Friday, 9PM), which manages to tell the story of both the musical and the man. It unfolds the chronological story of the founding father’s life, along with the musical and its creation. The film adds to its narrative clips from the show as well as interviews from the creative team and artists such as hip-hop legend Nas and Broadway icon Stephen Sondheim."

No Commercial Potential

G ManHilariously, record company execs would state that a band had 'no commercial potential', and ash can them. Then watch them generate huge sales numbers. We all want to prove the detractors wrong, of course, and that is the gist of the next show. Appearances by Frank Zappa, Manfred Mann, Dan Hicks, The Grateful Dead, and Spacemen 3 will highlight a playlist full of talented people that found a way to get radio airplay. The G Man

The program has three phases-classroom work, a practicum where each student will be given a quarter acre of land, and focus on an agricultural project, and concludes with a month long internship working with farmers in the USA, Bhutan, India, Italy, and other spots.  

The certificate will feature the very first university course in the United States offered on Biodynamic farming methodology.   That part of the curriculumn will be taught by the co-exectutive director of Demeter Association Inc. (the organization established to represent Demeter International and entrusted with upholding the principles of Biodynamic practices and principles), Jim Fullmer.

A groundbreaking ceremony will be held Friday, October 21 at 3:00 pm. for the new Ag Center.  The location will serve as the classroom and laboratory for the new initiative, and is located just north of Reiff Grain and Feed on Highway 1.
