The Filmosophers Movie Talk

"It was a big weekend for Birdman, which moved into front-runner Oscar status with its Birdman posterScreen Actors Guild win, combined with the Darryl F. Zanuck award for Best Picture from the Producers Guild— elevating its status as the awards-season front-runner, since the last seven PGA winners have gone on to win the Best Picture Oscar. Birdman also fulfilled forecasts that it would resonate with the performers union members. Directed by Alejandro Gozalez Inarritu, Birdman was shot from the point of view of the actor, played by Michael Keaton. Birdman also stars Edward Norton, Emma Stone, Naomi Watts, Zach Galifianakis and Amy RyanBoyhood had been the consensus favorite to win the PGA trophy" and remains the Filmosopher's Oscar picks for Best Picture and Richard Linklater for Director.

The Filmosophers Movie Talk, with Chris Busch and Bruce Miller, "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions", Fridays 12:30 PM, again Sunday mornings 11:30. “On behalf of all of us, our only ambition was to make a risky and experimental exploration of the cinematic language, of an artist’s complexity played by the incredible Michael Keaton.” - Birdman Director Alejandro Gozalez Inarritu

When it comes to liquor, I don't mess around. I don't get caught up in the latest trends. I have little or no time for flavored vodkas. And a million and one craft beers hold little or no interest for me. I drink like a detective in a black and white forties movie. Not only do I drink bourbon. I drink cheap bourbon. Old Fitzgerald's to be exact. It's made in Kentucky. And it's been made there since the turn of the last century. And now my clerk at the liquor store tells me it's being discontinued. Which I can understand. There ain't enough hard-drinking, economy minded men and women left in this world to keep a brand like that in the black. I am keeping it together. I will press on if Old Fitz is no more. I will switch my allegiance(probably to Old Crow---in the clubs I usually order up Jim Beam because I know only one place in the Chicago area that keeps Old Fitzgerald's behind the bar...and I think I'm the only idiot drinking it there). If you are booze fan(or just a plain old drunk) try a bottle today...before it's just a hazy memory.

Found Things

G ManI found a bunch of great music for this next edition of Centripetal Sounds. I went to a watering hole in Des Moines last week and bought a CD by The Sundogs, and I am happy to lead off the show with this great working band. Since I am bringing about three hours worth of music to play, I guess anthing can happen after that, but I do know I will be playing music by the following people new to my shows: Arlo McKinley and The Lonesome Sounds, JD Loudermilk, James Burton, and Hayden Thompson. I have new-to-me music by John Hartford and some oldies but goodies from Aerosmith, David Gilmour, Joe Walsh, The Pretenders, and Elvis Costello. Hey, lets find ourselves having a party and listening to tunes together. The G Man

psychedelia is alive and well

the psychedelic musical wave of the late 60s has peaked, but its influence lives on. in fact psychedelic music is alive and well today.

tame impalathis week i'll share psychedelic sounds from the last few years.

to the left is/are tame impala. tripster yes, and they can play, write, and sing with anyone.

still based on recreating the experiences of psychedelic experiences, you may be surprised to hear psychedelic tracks from artists as diverse as r&b sylist janelle monae and country-western uber outlaw, sturgill simpson. not to mention new music from classic trippers, pink floyd.

ChefsFeed and a Bit of Dining Advice from Your Great Taste Show Hosts!

ChefsFeedAfter two weeks on the road, I am more convinced than ever that ChefsFeed is the one go-to app to have on your smart phone if you want the best restaurant recommendations.  The content on the site is chef-driven, and top name chefs, too.  

The app is clearly focussed on presenting you concise information on where the best chefs like to eat, and what their favorite dishes are on the menu.  Jared Rivera, co-founder of ChefsFeed is my guest on the first half of the show.  Did you know that people can still get gout?  Listen in and find out how Jared and gout had two encounters.

Check out my article about the app in iPhone Life href="https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BwSiBP2f272qRDVJSklsRDQ1cVk/view?usp=sharing">here.
