The Filmosophers Movie Talk

Starting Friday at the Orpheum Theatre in Fairfield, Son Of God. "The life story of Son Of God posterJesus is told from his humble birth, through his teachings, crucifixion and ultimate resurrection." Churches who are interested in group reservations with discounted pricing please email orpheum@modernamericancinema.com

Interestingly, as reported in USA Today: "Not since The Ten Commandments and Ben-Hur more than a half-century ago has the film industry bankrolled religious-themed pictures as it has this year, with four big-studio Christian films storming the multiplex, along with dozens of art-house titles." This includes Noah, (out Friday) the story of the apocalyptic flood and the man who navigated it. Directed by Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan) and starring Russell Crowe. The film I'm most anticipating is Heaven Is For Real, starring Greg Kinnear, based on the #1 New York Times best-selling non-fiction book of the same name, about a boy who has visions of heaven in a near-death experience during surgery. Whoosh, it opens April 16th. We may invite Thomas "TJ" Gates in for that show. Thomas has his own amazing story.

We'll talk about that, what we've seen (twice Oscar nominated The Grandmaster) and more on the Filmosophers Movie Talk, with Chris Busch and Bruce Miller, "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions." Fridays at 12:30 PM, again Sunday mornings, 11:30. Peter- What are we going to do then? Jesus Christ- We are going to change the world. - Son Of God

RRI am sitting here waiting for the Cyclone game to start, hoping they are going to whup up on UCONN and maybe MSU later this weekend. So if you are excited from the victory, and haven't passed out from too much party, you will still be awake for this show. Right after People sing I Love You, we will hear the self-titled 2009 offering from Quilt. Allmusic says, "Quilt live up to their name, weaving a tapestry that's warm in it's dreamy, early morning feel and comforting in it's mantra-like delivery." Dreamy, yes, but I like it too. Then it is on to folks like Bob Dylan, CSNY, Cheap Trick, and The Paperhead, with a really wonderful song called Evergreen Tangerine that ends this show and begins the next show. Please enjoy the music. Cool Breeze

Hello Hub meets Generation whY (Part II)

Join host Andrew Tint as he highlights the issues facing Generation Y. This week Andrew is joined by Project's For All founder and director Katrin Macmillan as we get an update on Hello Hub. (Listen to Part I here).

Katrin founded Projects for All in 2013 with the aim of fostering community ownership of development projects and thereby empowering marginalized communities. Her passion for giving a voice to individuals and communities was shaped by her time living in Nigeria and Ethiopia working in human rights advocacy and development.

Project's For All is providing underprivileged children and adults in Africa with access to the opportunities that the Internet provides. Their computer terminals, or ‘Hello Hubs’, allow them to educate themselves, to communicate with others and to be part of the global online community.

Projects For All is incredibly grateful to Rebel@Outsider for creating two short films about Projects For All.  Mel and Nic stepped into make two films when there was no resources for Projects for All to tell their story. They created two verisons, one is a minute long, and the other three minutes.

Help Project Open World to tell their story and reach the widest possible audience by making a short film yourself! Contact Katrin Macmillan and Projects for All for more information.

Just Another Day- Or, Is It?

G ManHeraclitus famously once said 'You cannot step in the same river twice.' This Thursday is unique, just like each and every day. So, this is not just another day, and it will not be just another show. We are going to run through the week in songs, and we are starting with Sunday. Head East gives us this line: Came up Sunday morning, first day of the week...then I have Monday Morning Gloom, and Jimi Hendrix ('It's too bad, that our friends, can't be with us today, well, it's Tuesday). Wednesday is taken care of, you guessed it, by Simon & Garfunkel. Thursday is the Pet Shop Boys, Friday is glorified by The Easybeats, and Saturday gets the royal treatment with The Jefferson Airplane and Greg Kihn. In between certain songs you will hear short sketches of classical music, seven in all. Like nothing you have heard before on Centripetal Sounds. Enjoy! The G Man

Food and Film-A Perfect Pair with Caroline M. Grant

Dinner RushIt was so much fun discussing food in films with Caroline M. Grant.  Caroline and her collaborator, Lisa Catherine Harper, are the editors of The Cassoulet Saved Our Marriage, a fascinating book of diverse essays focussed on "true tales of food, family, and how we learn to eat."

Caroline is an avid movie lover so we spent the hour talking about some of our favorite films where food plays a role like Ang Lee's Eat Drink Man Woman and its Westernized counterpart, Tortilla SoupDinner Rush, The Big Night, Moonstruck, and others were part of the banter before time ran out.  We had many other films on our list, but I'm curious how the ones we ended up talking about fit in with your favorites.  Let me know.  Send your comments to greattaste@kruufm.com.

On this week's Rice Bowl I'm going to feature 4 Japanese Alternative and Punk Rock bands. I chose Ellegarden (image), GReeeeN, Porno Graffiti and LM.C to give you an impression what Blink 182 or Sum 41 would sound like if they were Japanese bands.

An Immigrant's Life - The Story of Marco Saavedra.

Join host, Andrew Tint as he highlights the issues facing Generation Y.

This week Generation whY is exploring the personal story of Marco Saavedra. Marco grew up as an undocumented American, and has spent his life fighting for their rights. As part of Dream 9 and National Immigrant Youth Alliance, Marco has had his story covered by the New York Daily Post and the LA TIMES.

I can't think of anything braver that, especially considering it might have led to deportation! Find out more about the life of Marco Saavedra on Generation whY.

Generation whY explores the issues facing Millennials. The concerns confronting the millennial generation affect more than just a select few- the entire nation is deeply impacted by the tribulations of Generation Y as they come of age.

His guests will include OURTIME.org co-founder Matt Segal, The host of the David Pakman show David Pakman, and more.
