The Filmosophers movie talk

It's a joy to know and co-host the Filmosophers with Chris Busch. He easily flows David Lynch: The Art Life postera deep awareness, which is a joy to experience and a benefit to any community he's part of. Recently this community's included Chicago, where Chris and his wonderful wife Julia have been in my opinion, working on the front lines of phase transition with the David Lynch Foundation. So cinematically speaking, it's a joy for us to talk about the new documentary film David Lynch: The Art Life. This film could be of interest to almost anyone who happens to read this post. "Jon Nguyen's carefully-calibrated ode to Lynch is in itself Lynchian, an essential picture for the director's legion of fans." - Screen International. "Extravagantly surreal as the products of his imagination may be, they are deeply rooted in personal history and philosophy -- and it's this connection that Jon Nguyen's disarmingly off-kilter documentary probes to rewarding effect." - Variety

We'll talk about the highly anticipated live action remake of the classic anime Ghost In The Shell (it's mostly about the visuals and Scarlett Johansson, herself a special effect :) and other new releases. Chris will re-visit 20th Century Women with me as I just saw this inspiring film from one of our fave writer/directors- Mike Mills (Beginners). There is a new "trailer-of-the-week" we encourage film fans to watch: Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets “Welcome to Alpha — the city of a thousand planets, where for hundred of years, every species has shared their knowledge, their intelligence. It’s paradise.”

All that and as much more as time allows, on the Filmosophers, with Chris Busch & Bruce Miller, "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussion." Fridays 12:30 PM, again Sunday mornings 11:30.

"Sickness, corruption, fear in the air. It was so good for me." - David Lynch

donovan's magical songs

donovan is coming to fairfest next month (september 4th), so my daughter elise and i both take to the air together to share our favorite songs that speak of the magic in the world. (we've shared the same tastes in music since she was born)
beatles, maharishi, donovansongs like:

hurdy gurdy man [pictured], atlantis (my mercifully shortened version), celia of the seals (perhaps elise's favorite), the riverman's daughter (a magical tale of romance), the (mysterious tale of a girl's love and transformation into a swan) reedy river, and (david lynch's favorite) season of the witch.

"I guess I got whacked hard in the mystery department when I was little. I found the world completely and totally fascinating then - it was like a dream." ~David Lynch

The fascinating and dream like way in which David Lynch sees the world has been infused into his unique body of creative work during his 62 prolific years. With David Lynch's birthday coming up this Sunday I decided this week's show would be the perfect time to play some songs from a compilation cd that I put together a couple years ago as a birthday present for David. Tune in Saturday night at 9pm!
