Iowa husband-and-wife duo Troy and Amy Van Beek pooled their resources and talents--he's an ex-Navy Seal with a degree in Sustainability; she's an Eco-Architectural Designer and Builder with a degree in Fine Arts--to create Iowa's pioneering solar company, Ideal Energy Inc. Idealism motivates this dynamic couple, who believe creating energy abundance through sustainable practices will help eliminate scarcity, a primary motivation for war.

Elizabeth Warren blows the stoneface banker CEO of Wells Fargo out of the water for his company's heinous cross-selling tactics that led to mass firings and possible criminal allegations. Music to accentuate the less than positive. You'll be entertained.
Finally, a scary look at a very scary subject. This 25-year old film lets American Aryans, white supremacists and others spew their venom and/or logic. Strap your seatbelts on and you'll see how far we as a nation have--or have not--come.
Blood in the Face is a 1991 documentary film about white supremacy groups in North America. It features many interviews with various white supremacist leaders, and archival footage of others.
Inspired by a nonfiction book author James Ridgeway, this documentary was largely shot in Cohoctah Township, Michigan. It focuses on a gathering of neo-Nazis, racists, and conspiracy theorists who expect people of color to ignite a Racial Holy War in the U.S.
Filmmakers Anne Bohlen and Kevin Rafferty take an intentionally leisurely, conversational tack with supremacists who have assembled for lectures and workshops on everything from getting their message out via home videos to moving all like-minded "white Christians" to the Northwest, especially the Idaho Panhandle.
Well... one definition of that word is the act of arranging. You can see why I jumped all over that particular context. I arrange 4 hours of new show time every week, and then it is repeated at a later time, and therefore 8 hours of original programming results. So 8 of 168 hours a week, you are mine. Imagine an intense look of satisfaction on my face, and you will close to the feeling I get from that fact. And- there is the music. You just have to examine the playlist in order to assess the level of grandeur of this show. As is usually the case, I have bands known, and unknown, to you. I have long songs and short songs. I have songs that inform, entertain, provoke, and excite you. I just want to tell you that it is so worth your time to listen to these shows. If you have even a modicum of interest in rock and roll, you will be thrilled by what transpires. Enjoy. The G Man
DJ Andy Bargerstock returns with another original LIVE program with music from off the beaten path... nearly 100% tracks never played before on Fringe Toast.

Others gracing the stage in first half include bluesmaster Gary Moore, cigarbox guitar wizard Justin Johnson, former Pink Floyd lead man David Gilmour with new music.
The second-hour Chill Session features the exotic new project called The Normalities which is described as dance music stepping-out with some very interesting twists and shouts. Virtually no info on this new discovery. Electro-acoustic contributions come from Bonobo, Chris Zippel, and Hot Steppa.
Click here for playlist. Stay tuned to upcoming 10th Annual Best of Fringe Toast shows coming in early October. Really... the best music you never hear unless you are tuned to Fringe Toast. Invite friends to join the live stream.
I wanted to point out some interesting items on the playlist for the next show. Mountain Bus has a song called I Know You Rider, and its live, and it is a great version of the song. Also some live Little Feat with Tripe Face Boogie. Yes, there is a pattern here because side two of the show has a couple of long live jams by Jefferson Airplane and Spacemen 3. Check the playlist out in my blog, and if you gotta be up all night, no sense in missing this great rock and roll. Cool Breeze

We're excited to report that Hell Or High Water starring Jeff Bridges, Chris Pine and Fairfield's Ben Foster is coming to the Ottumwa 8 this weekend. This is one of the best films of the year. "A film with the sort of sweeping grandeur that today's filmmakers rarely aspire to, let alone fulfill." - Wall Street Journal; "Takes you places that you thought the big screen had forgotten." - St. Louis Post Dispatch; "A genre film that transcends genre, an iconic American tale that is nonetheless firmly grounded in both place and time. One of the best movies of the year." - The Atlantic; "Hot damn, this one's a goodie - a mesmerizing, modern-day western that moves with the coiled intensity of a rattlesnake ready to spring." - Rolling Stone; "You could freeze nearly any frame of Hell or High Water and you'd be looking at a work of art. It's stark and breathtaking and gorgeous to behold." - Chicago Sun-Times; "They don't make them like this anymore - but they still can, and here's the proof." - Boston Globe; "It's got a dry dusty power, and a dark sense of humor. And when it finally saddles up and really rides, pardner, you'd best get out of its way." - N.Y. Daily News; "A thrillingly good movie - a crackerjack drama of crime, fear, and brotherly love set in a sun-roasted, deceptively sleepy West Texas that feels completely exotic for being so authentic." - Variety; Hell or High Water isn't just a great time at the movies, it's one of the year's best pictures. - Toronto Star
