Finally! A descent kiss between the Doctor and River. The death kiss. River Song (Alex Kingston) and the Doctor (Matt Smith) kiss during the Doctor Who episode “Let’s Kill Hitler”.

The Doctor Who reviews were up immediately after the show aired in the UK.  I had decided to avoid all spoilers and came to the show with an open heart and mind, ready to love/hate Steven Moffat. As the time ticked by, my will power started to erode and I decided to read a review.

It occurred to me that the reviewer and I had different goals. He was watching to write his review and get it up and into Google first. Mine was to hang on and run with the Doctor. How sad for him.
There IT was on my screen in black and off white!

Doctor Who “Let’s Kill Hitler” He Thought It Sucked!

It was hard to resist the urge to throw the laptop on the floor. I stopped reading and decided to  just wait.

Rule #1 Doctor Who Reviewers Lie!

He carefully pointed out and complained that Mels suddenly appeared in Amy and Rory’s life.  Well duh! Time can be rewritten. Then he dissected and ridiculed everything that didn’t seem to have a plausible explanation.

My advice to the reviewer?
If you’re wondering how he eats and breathes
and other science facts (la la la),
Then repeat to yourself, “It’s just a show,
I should really just relax.” (la la la)

Losillë Doesn’t Lie! Doctor Who Series 6 Pt 2 “Let’s Kill Hitler” Was Exhilarating Fun!

The episode was Steven Moffat at his convoluted, “I have to watch it 6 times to get all the subtle references.” best.

The synopsis is below. I am going straight to the good stuff.

Moffat included Alex Kingston‘s famous breast to the script! I love it. Alex Kingston’s breast have a career of their own.  She has perfect, non surgically enhanced breast and they have volumes written about them.  When River saw her new breasts she remarked she would be wearing sweaters. Moffat working her breasts in to the story was hilarious. If you would like to see her bare breasts, nipples and all click here.  Don’t click if you don’t want to see boobies.

Doctor Who Love/Life Timeline Chart River Song And The Doctor

When Alex Kingston comes on to a set everyone is in danger of being completely mowed down.  She exudes sexuality. In the past I was worried that Matt Smith might not have the acting chops to keep her from chewing up the scenery. Each time he meets her head on and raises the bar! Those two are absolute magic together.

Favorite part: When River was crawling on the Doctor stopping just short of a lap dance. Matt Smith was wonderful. He looks  turned on, terrified and completely befuddled. Intellect and reasoning can’t help him with an irresistible attraction and his brain seems to check out. The Doctor has no idea what to do with or about River Song.

Is Doctor Who’s Matt Smith Gay? Daisy Lowe’s Playboy Photos Answer That Question!

During the episode he called River Song is his bespoken. Yeah, I looked it up. Bespoken – an item custom-made to the buyer’s specification. The term historically was applied only to tailored clothing, shirts, and other parts of men’s apparel involving measurement and fitting.

How could he resist her?

Thanks to Monty Python the Doctor is able to ward off  River Song attack when sleight of hand switches her gun for a banana.

Doctor Who’s Matt Smith Wears A Sailor Hat Now. Sailor Hats Are Cool!

Bonus: Caitlin Blackwood the little Amelia Pond.  Karen Gillan, who plays the grown-up Amy Pond, is her cousin in real life. That little girl is very talented.

Best quote: River Song: “I’m a psychopath. I’m not rude! ”

Juiciest Tidbit: The Doctor whispers in River Song’s ear as he is dieing and she says she thinks River already knows.

Worst part: When the Doctor is dieing,  River gives him the balance of her generation powers to save him.  The Doctor, Amy and Rory dump her! They take her to the hospital run by the Order of The Crazy Cat Lady and leave her!  Remember those Cats on New(15) New York? They used The Flesh to grow people for medical experimentation.

Plot 1:  We meet Amy and Cory’s free wheeling friend that blamed all historical calamities on the lack of intervention by the Doctor. When she finally meets the Doctor she kidnaps him at gun point to go back in time and kill Hitler.

Chaos, cops, kidnapped at gunpoint and all the Doctor got out of it was, “You never said I was hot?”

Plot 2: A shape shifting robot replaces a member of Hitler’s inner circle to get close enough to kill him. The TARDIS flies into the room and knocks over the robot and saves Hitler. Except the robot is really the spaceship,  Teselecta (anagram?) that punishes people for war crimes right before they die.  The spaceship shrinks people and beamed them into the spaceship/robot where they were terminated by very polite robots referred to as anti-bodies.

Plot 3: Amy and Cory’s life long friend is shot by Hitler regenerates and we find out Mels is Melody Pond who then becomes River Song. Alex Kingston is incredibly hot as she explores “River’s” new body.  Mels does not know she is River Song. It is wild and confusing. The Doctor and River face off in an amazing scene! How how I love those two.

There was chaos, confusion and Hitler locked in a closet and all the Doctor got out of it was, “You named your daughter after your daughter?”

The incredibly beautiful Alex Kingston talks about her role as River Song on Doctor Who and that wonderful, wonderful hair.

“Interviews usually upset me in one way or another.

I lead a very quiet life and never court publicity. I don’t go to a restaurant and let slip I’m leaving by the back door, like some celebrities.
My life isn’t interesting enough for anyone to hack my phone. I don’t agree with people opening up their lives to the public, but we’ve been brainwashed into thinking this is how it must be. I’m just not interested.
I wasn’t quite sure about accepting when I was asked to do two episodes. Living in America I hadn’t followed the resurgence of Doctor Who, but I cried when I read the script to Silence in the Library because it was such a sad story – River Song encounters the Doctor in the 51st century.
It’s similar to Audrey Niffenegger’s novel The Time Traveler’s Wife – two people who have great love for each other, but are never able to meet in the right space or time. The sadness was of a woman with a close connection to the Doctor who sacrifices herself to save his life. I didn’t expect to be asked back.”
Steven Moffat engineers it so we can’t understand. There are so many threads that tie up later and it’s only then you understand why you did or said a certain thing.

You have to trust implicitly he knows where he’s going. It’s clever. He knew River was Amy’s daughter but didn’t tell me because he felt I might empathise with her too much and be tempted to be more close, rather than maternal.”

The stories allow for a heightened form of acting. It’s not kitchen-sink drama and the dialogue can be quite challenging. The humour is very welcome and I love the fact that apart from the basic storylines there are all sorts of things people from different generations can pick up on.

They throw in sneaky references that go over the heads of children but parents and grandparents will understand. In the new episode, Let’s Kill Hitler, there’s a camera angle that directly references The Graduate, which film buffs will get immediately.

Doctor Who Ep 8 PREQUEL to Let’s Kill Hitler

Doctor Who and children that are fans.

“That’s its power. It’s part of their development, learning to conquer fear, which the programme does in an incredibly safe way. I remember at seven desperately wanting to see it but knowing I’d be terrified, so I’d either have a cushion in front of my face, or watch through a crack in the door.

Although I squirm when I see myself – I’m super critical – I watch now with my daughter [ten-year-old Salome]. She’s been on the set so tends to deconstruct it. That’s her safety net.

Fans

To be honest, Doctor Who fans are a mixture of crazies plus solid citizens, but they’re relentless. On ER I’d be asked just once for an autograph. For these fans once is never enough and I find that a little hard to handle.” She’s had a respite recently as the insecure middle-aged mistress of a prince in a brilliant production of Friedrich Schiller’s 18th-century play Luise Miller, at the Donmar Warehouse in London.

It was exhausting but also thrilling. I enjoyed every minute of it, although each time I came off stage I’d slump in the dressing room and have to gear myself up for the next powerful scene.

Her great hair that she hated as a child.

It’s served me pretty well, so I can’t be mean about it any more.

Her life.

I’m not sure where my home really is at the moment. I’m due to go back to the States, but I return here more frequently because I’m offered work. In America it’s thin on the ground, although I’ve made a film, Like Crazy, which won the grand jury prize at Sundance Film Festival, so there might be a bit more buzz.

I still consider myself English, and no matter how long – it’s 14 years – I’ve lived in America, enjoy it and have made lovely friends, I still feel an outsider. I understand how this country functions. There’s something in my body and my bones that makes me so comfortable. Just wandering through London I feel incredibly happy and at ease. I let the day take me wherever it leads.

I have burned out on doing music reviews for the time being. While you are waiting for me to get back into the groove here are some of my favorites from around the web.

Hard-Fi – Killer Sounds – CD Album Review


This is an album that shows Hard-Fi slowly getting back to where they were in 2005. It may not please the most dogged of fans who think the band will never return to their glory days, but at least Hard-Fi are trying to show they’re still making an effort.

Killer Sounds is released in the U.K. tomorrow.

The Hobbit’s Jackson and Walsh Help Free The West Memphis 3

Review: Rock the Bells gazes back while looking ahead

The sometime rapper/full-time fan represents the demographic sweet spot for the traveling hip-hop festival: 31 years old, weaned on rugged ’90s boom-bap rap and unabashedly nostalgic for the era when its raw and uncompromised iteration received a spot on the throne. The aesthetic defined by Q-Tip’s declaration, “Rap is not pop. If you call it that then stop.” Read the complete review by Jeff Weiss on Pop & Hiss.

Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh

Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh step in to help fund the move to successfully release the West Memphis 3.

Sir Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh has used their money and influence and has helped end a successful seven-year legal fight to free three American men found guilty of murdering young boys.

The Hobbit director says he has no plans to use their story to make a movie.

Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelley were released from an Arkansas prison on Saturday after serving 18 years for the 1993 triple murder of  eight year old Scouts Steven Branch, Christopher Byers and James Moore.

The boys’ bodies were found naked and hogtied with shoelaces and tossed into a drainage ditch.

Misskelley and Baldwin were sentenced to live in prison. Echols was sentenced to death and sent to death row.

DNA tests in 2007, which failed to link the West Memphis Three to the gruesome crime scene, the Arkansas Supreme Court ruled  there was clearly grounds to get a hearing into whether a retrial should go ahead.

Instead, the men walked free after after accepting an “Alford plea” to get Echols out of solitary confinement and off of death row.  The rarely used plea  allowed them to publicly proclaim their innocence in exchange for pleading guilty in court and most importantly giving up their right to seek compensation for a miscarriage of justice.

According to spokesperson for the couple Matt Dravitzki, to The Dominion Post  the director and his partner, producer Fran Walsh,   funded the extensive private investigation that led to the Arkansas Supreme Court ruling.

“Peter and Fran have funded seven years of investigation into trying to get these guys freed,” he said.  They saw [documentary] Paradise Lost eight years ago and that put them into action. It simply comes from them being in a position that they’re able to [fund] that. It’s humanitarian entirely – it’s philanthropic.”

The remakes of Law and Order are fantastic. They use the same storyline but not the same dialogue and the changes are fascinating. You see how truly different our cultures are. Everyone is very so polite and good cop/bad cop is always hilarious. It is best to watch with close caption, sometimes it is hard to understand what they are saying.

Torchwood’s John Barrowman Expresses Concern About Possible TV Band On Same Sex Kissing

At the end of last week’s “Torchwood: Miracle Day,” we learned that the forces behind The Miracle are blackmailing Gwen. They  want Capt. Jack, and they are threatening to kill her family if she doesn’t deliver him.
That cliffhanger leads into “Immortal Sins,” in which Gwen (Eve Myles) must decide whether or not to somehow exchange Jack (John Barrowman) for her father, husband and child.

Torchwood Miracle Day Announces Guest Star Line Up

The episode also reveals “a beautiful relationship between two men,” John Barrowman said at San Diego Comic Con, answering a question about whether or not the show being on the Starz network will sanitize Jack’s gay leanings. Obviously, the answer is quite simply no, which we learned as soon as Jack picked up that bartender in Episode 3.

Alana Lee

 

Even as Alana Lee’s debut video Butterflies keeps flitting around—with an incredible nearly 11 million YouTube views and counting—the multi-talented 14-year-old singer is getting ready to “Synchronize” with an equally infectious new single, dropping August 18, and a video to follow.

Signed to the innovative Long Beach, California label 37 Records, Lee (www.alanaleemusic.net) has received a flurry of media and online attention recently, with notable coverage and/or interviews in OC Weekly, PopStar Magazine and Suite101.com, in addition to an American Perspective radio interview and a Young Icons TV segment, scheduled to air this September.

The singer also participated in an exclusive Ice Cream For Breakfast social and concert event to raise awareness for Give Kids The World Village, a magical resort for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families. The event was hosted by Austin Anderson (Nickelodeon) and Savvy & Mandy (Radio Disney).

While the media was focused earlier this year on Rebecca Black’s now infamous song and YouTube video “Friday”—also written and produced by ARK Music Factory— Alana was building an enthusiastic fan base of her own with “Butterflies,” with a much stronger “like” ratio.

One of Alana’s more prominent fans showing love is celebrity blogger Perez Hilton, who featured the video for “Butterflies” on his website Perez TV. The track also broke through into the Top 100 Download charts on iTunes in seven countries.

37 Records’ roster currently includes one of San Diego‘s top electronic-pop bands White Apple Tree, Orange County, Calif.-based underground pop band The Gromble, Russian Songstress Nikki Forova, pop artist Kristen Trayer and Melody Zephyr and folk-pop singer Cathy-Anne McClintock.

The label is owned by Steven McClintock, a veteran singer, songwriter and music producer who won a BMI Award for a track in which he produced vocals for ‘80s teen pop singer Tiffany during her time of superstardom. McClintock also co-wrote “Synchronize” with Grammy-nominated lyricist Pamela Oland.

Alana played a big part in choosing the songs she would record for her EP out of over 100 suggested to her by McClintock. The collection will include “Synchronize,” “It’s Nothing Personal,” “This Is Me,” “Drive Me” and “Turn It Up.” There will also be a remix of “Butterflies.”

Guy Sebastian debute “Who’s That Girl”

Australian Pop icon Guy Sebastian, who recently debuted his infectious single “Who’s That Girl” featuring Eve in the U.S., reunited with his fellow Aussie friend and Extra TV co-host Renee Bargh on August 15 at The Grove in Los Angeles.

Also serving as a judge on X Factor Australia, Sebastian swooned new and long-time fans with a live acoustic performance of “Who’s That Girl” (including Eve’s rap!), then caught up with Bargh for an exclusive interview for Extra TV (check local listings). As he made his debut stateside this summer, Sebastian’s single went 4x platinum in Australia, making it the third highest selling single in the country’s history.

Guy Sebastian Charted #1 In New Zealand

It was also top selling song in 2010, and reached #1 on the New Zealand singles chart. Sebastian stopped by celebrity blogger Perez Hilton’s studio recently for a performance of the hit song, and is set to film later this month with Beta Records TV. Earlier this summer, Sebastian began his U.S. promotion in NYC with visits to the “Elvis Duran and the Morning Show” on Z100, Sirius XM Radio, Billboard Magazine, and the offices of GOOM Live.

Known for his dedication to numerous causes and charities, the multi-talented artist recently showed his support for the Somaly Mam Foundation at the L.A. launch party at SLS Hotel hosted by actress AnnaLynne McCord. The organization aims to raise awareness and money for victims of sex trafficking. For the latest music and news on Guy Sebastian, visit www.guysebastian.com.

Seemingly unable to escape time travel, Smith will be starring in a BBC film about the 1948 Olympic rowing team Bert Bushnell and Dickie Burnell.

The drama tells the story of their relationship and how the two men from different backgrounds overcame their class differences to claim victory on the water.

It was quite frankly humorous  when   the   inevitable, “Is he gay?”  question for Doctor Who‘s Matt  Smith turned up in Doctor Who discussions.   If  you are a  male  actor, you know  your career is going  well when ” gay”  speculation starts.

Judging by these photos, gay or straight Matt Smith is hitting way out of our league! Mere mortals can only sigh and love him from afar.

Azita Ghanizada Alphas’ Rachel Pirzad “synesthete”, which allows her to enhance one sense while rendering her remaining senses temporarily useless.

“Alphas”

The easiest way to describe “Alphas” is “XMen Light”.  Don’t misinterpret my X-Men reference as saying it is even close to being as good as X-Men. The word “mutant” is conspicuously absent and when I wandered into “Rosetta Stone” I found the story confusing.

The only reason I watch “Alphas” was because it was on after “Warehouse 13” and Ryan Cartwright (Vincent Nigel-Murray, Bones) pulled me into the episode. He plays Gary Bell  an “autistic,very socially awkward alpha who is able to read any and all waves in the electromagnetic field. This includes television broadcasts, radio signals, and phone texts.” It took reading the info on the website and watching  the episode a second time to understand it.

When I say I didn’t understand and had to watch it again I don’t mean in that wonderful  “that was soo complex I have to watch it again” kinda way. “Alphas” is sci-fi fluff. It’s interesting but isn’t going to tax your brain. You can watch “Alphas” while you play on FB without losing track of the storyline.

The last episode “Never Let Me Go” was an OK episode, fairly good story line and kept my attention up to a point. Azita Ghanizada, alpha Rachel Pirzad, did an excellent job falling into the clutches of an alpha mom with a broken heart.

Spoilers….I am channeling River Song.

In “Never Let Me Go” the alphas go to a town to find out why people are dying from an mysterious illness. It is an good plot not taxing on the brain but entertaining, right up to the point where Gary Bell shows up. I appreciate that they want to realistically portray autism but his role was distracting. It is like when there is a sex scene for no apparent reason. Gary’s over the top actions just made you wonder, “Why?”. Gary in the high school was when FB came into the picture. The character was obviously autistic in “Rosetta Stone” but not as distracting/annoying like he was in this episode.

Watch it.  It is pleasant. It has potential.

This is the explanation of the show from the SyFy “Alphaswebsite.

Alphas is an action-packed thriller from writers Zak Penn (The Avengers, X-Men: The Last Stand) and Michael Karnow. In the series, five ordinary people are brought together to form one extraordinary team of Alphas — people with the unique power to stretch the capabilities of the human mind giving them superhuman physical and mental abilities.

Operating within the Defense Criminal Investigation Service of the U.S. Department of Defense and led by preeminent neurologist and psychiatrist Dr. Lee Rosen (Emmy Award-winner and Academy Award-nominee David Strathairn), an expert in Alpha phenomena, the team investigates cases that point to others with Alpha abilities. As they work against the clock to solve this new brand of crime, they must prevent their own personality differences and disparate backgrounds from interfering with their ultimate mission to catch the enemy.

In addition to Academy Award nominee David Strathairn (Temple Grandin, Good Night, and Good Luck), the ensemble cast stars Malik Yoba (New York Undercover, Why Did I Get Married?), Warren Christie (October Road), Laura Mennell (Watchmen), Ryan Cartwright (Mad Men, Bones) and Azita Ghanizada (Castle).

Though she counts her influences as everyone from Van Halen and The Beatles to Stevie Nicks, 17-year-old singer/songwriter dynamo Madison Rose (www.madisonroserocks.com) channels her inner Joan Jett when—in dishing on her explosive debut full-length recording Aftershock—she boldly declares to the world “I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll!”

“I truly feel that it picked me,” she says. “I didn’t just decide one day ‘Hey, I’m gonna sing rock music.’ The music just spoke to me loud and clear, and I listened. My writing and my personal style just evolved from there, now I eat, drink, breath, live Rock and Roll!”

Madison’s not rocking and rumbling alone. On tracks like the blistering lead single “Kissin’ In Your Cadillac” and the heavy duty emotional “Teenage Runaway,” she’s vibing with renowned surf-rock guitarist Gary Hoey and her multi-talented brother and musical partner in crime Justyn, dubbed “Justyn the Stuntman” for the many hats he dons (songwriter, bassist, guitarist, mentor) as he helps his younger sister hone in on her powerful sound.

With 16 solo albums and five Top 20 Billboard hits since the early ‘90s, Hoey has made numerous lists as one of the 100 Greatest Guitar Players of All Time. Over the years, Hoey has toured and traded licks with the likes of Brian May (Queen), Peter Frampton, Foreigner, Joe Satriani, The Doobie Brothers, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Eric Johnson, Steve Vai, Bret Michaels, Rick Derringer and Deep Purple.

Comparing her favorably to Jett, Pat Benatar and Lita Ford, Hoey says, “Producing Madison was a joy. Her work ethic and drive were amazing. To see such a young artist come up with such great songs is rare. She’s gorgeous and talented—and she can rock! Her new record is going to blow people’s minds.”

Those who remember a softer type rock of a different era might compare the creative dynamic of Madison and Justyn to that of the legendary Carpenters. In addition to playing bass on the album and lead guitar for her live shows, Justyn’s strengths as a songwriter complement Madison’s perfectly. “Joanna,” a track Madison calls an “epic ballad” for its 130 production layers (including a massive choir sound), represents the spirit of their collaboration. Unbeknownst to one another, he had written a beautiful melody and she had written lyrics—and they matched up perfectly. His strength is in the music and chording, while hers is in basic melodies and words.

“Any biography ever written on me would not be complete unless it included a few hundred chapters on Justyn,” she says. “It’s hard to put into words what a huge influence he has had on who I am as a person. My brother and I are two halves of a whole, inseparable on our journey through life. He is my best friend…someone to laugh with, cry with, dream with, create music with and so much more.”

Delving into their shared history, Justyn adds, “We have been collaborating unofficially, playing and singing since I was 11 and she was seven. Madison would organize summer and Christmas living room concerts for family and friends. I would play guitar and she would sing. We would mesh our musical ideas and explore from there. I was pursuing a career as a screenwriter and filmmaker after high school and didn’t consider pursuing a career in music until she kept getting more serious about her career. When she started getting opportunities to perform and record, she nudged me to get back into music and start working with her.”

Despite the obvious connection of being musical siblings, it’s hard to imagine Richard Carpenter taking his sister Karen to hear a band like Def Leppard the way Justyn did when Madison was 13. “That was the first concert I ever attended, and it changed my life,” she says. “The first time I heard the song ‘Animal,’ I knew I wanted to sing rock ‘n’ roll. It was one of those epiphanies you hear about. After that concert, I went home and wrote my first song and I haven’t stopped writing since.”

The lone cover tune on Aftershock is an exhilarating re-imagining of “Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love,” from the debut album of Van Halen—the second concert Madison ever went to. In the last year, she had the opportunity to perform at the Key Club in L.A. with members of the band. “When I saw them for the first time,” she says, “it made me feel alive and I knew from that moment on that I wanted to sing, and perform music for the rest of my life. I don’t know, something in that moment just clicked, and I knew that’s where I needed to be, singing up on stage, rockin’ out in front of an entire arena. The way David Lee Roth commanded the stage, got the audience on their feet, rockin’ out, I thought, ‘I want to do that.’”

On the softer side of rock, Madison calls Stevie Nicks “one of the greatest songwriters of all time. “When I saw Fleetwood Mac, she really inspired me. After that show I went home and wrote at least a dozen songs. She sparked my creativity. One of them is ‘Teenage Runaway,’ a poignant song about the pain I felt trying to help a self-destructive friend who was running away not only in a physical sense, but from also from the emotional support in her life. All of the lyrics on the album were written in 2009, when I was 15.”

For Madison’s 16th birthday in early 2010, her family sent she and Justyn to L.A. to attend Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp—a dream come true that would allow Madison to mingle with her idols Bret Michaels, Lita Ford and Michael Anthony. Hoey was her camp counselor. Over the course of the week that Madison and Justyn were there, they got to know him and “simply just clicked.” They all talked about getting together someday to write music and kept in touch.

A few months later, Madison and Justyn attended a guitar clinic that Hoey was hosting a few hours from where the family lived in Florida. After the clinic, their parents talked to the guitarist about Madison’s dreams of putting together an album based on the lyrics she had written, and her need for a great musical collaborator. Hoey invited the whole brood to come up to his home studio in New England to see if they could make this album concept come to life.

In September 2010, the family loaded up their SUV with four small dogs, volumes of Madison’s lyrics, guitars, and clothes. They drove to New Hampshire to live for two months while the singer, Justyn and Hoey wrote all the songs for the project which became Aftershock.

“The three of us spent every long 14-hour plus day writing, laughing, collaborating and recording every track on my album in Gary’s home studio in the middle of the woods, in the middle of nowhere,” Madison says. “This was one of those moments in time that can never be duplicated—pure inspiration and creation and simply one of the best times of my life. Picture a cool fall day; leaves red and golden with the sound of wind blowing gently through them. Gary, Justyn and I are sitting in a circle on the carpeted floor, Gary with his guitar, Justyn with his bass, me with my lyrics. We jammed, the music just flowed and we had an amazing time. The first day in the studio, Gary looked at me and said, ‘We are going to write a hit song today.’ I thought, ‘Yeah, right, in one day.’ But by the end of the day, we wrote the music to the title track to the album, ‘Aftershock.’

“Gary was an amazing mentor to both me and Justyn,” she adds. “He was also a teacher, inspiration and a friend. I hope one day I can give back to a hopeful dreamer, the way Gary mentored and inspired me. My true goal is to inspire people with my music. Music is art, and just as when two people look at the same painting and see completely different things, when each individual listens to music they hear their own meaning to the songs, and feel their own unique experience.  If my music makes people happy, exhilarated, excited, reflective, melancholy, empowered, or makes them feel an emotional connection to the song then as a songwriter I have reached the pinnacle of success. Yet for all that, it’s onstage where I feel most at home and really come alive.”

I have pretty much stopped doing music reviews because of time restraints but this one just had to be done!  Georgia Possum band was in a press release from Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park.  There was nothing going on so I went to YouTube and found their video to listen to while I worked.

I usually listen to hip hop and rap music. My taste in music runs towards Eminem and 50 Cent BUT I am from the south and I embraced my redneckness years ago.

Georgia Possum got their name  after bass player Tracy Hosey caught a live Georgia possum with his bare hands and turned it lose in the band house one night.

Atheists Don’t Have No Songs by Steve Martin & The Steep Canyon Rangers

In their “Boyz from da woodz”  song and video they fully embrace and celebrate redneckness.  The song goes from spot on to tongue-in-cheek with fun lyrics like ,” We don’t call women garden tools. (hoes)
When I saw the redneck drive by shooting, I damned near spewed my coffee.  If you are from the south, in the south, wish you were a southerner or just like to make fun of rednecks, you will like this video. It is the Complete Redneck, right down to the chickens in the yard and the dried up grape arbor. (I am pretty sure I am related to “Mama”.

Georgia Possum Video – The Perfect Redneck Drive By Shooting

The band is made up of Tracy Hosey (bass), Israel Tyson (drums), Ron Lands (steel guitarist/guitar) and Jack Walker (vocals/guitar). They play country/blues/rock and a tinge of bluegrass.

The band was formed a few years after high school by Jack Walker and Israel Tyson. Jack Walker is a man born dirt road poor and who has struggled through life’s challenges. Born and raised in the little rural town of Roopville, Georgia, population 250, he writes songs about hunting, fishing, God, faith, loss of love and loss of his beloved mother to cancer. Drummer Israel Tyson grew up in rural Crossplains, Georgia and has a country boy’s view of his world. Part mountain man, part madman, bass player Tracy Hosey has probably killed and eaten most anything that crawls and swims. The band got its name because he caught a live Georgia possum with his bare hands and turned it lose in the band house one night. That’s what the band members say they are – possums, night prowlers and survivors.

This unique group played as a three piece band for years with occasional guitar players coming and going till Nashville steel and regular guitar player Ron Lands sat in one night. He has played with a lot of Nashville stars and wanted to play with the Georgia Possums. He brought a sound and a feel the band had been seeking for years. Ron came from Oregon originally before moving to Georgia. He jokes that he was so poor growing up he had to wear his sister’s dress sometimes!

A new CD entitled “Boyz from the Woodz” was just released by Georgia Possums this summer. “We love people, and we hope they love us,” says Israel. “We never take our fans for granted. We have a dream, and God and people willing, we might just make it come true.”

Doors to the Music Hall open at 5 p.m. for dinner with shows beginning at 8 p.m. Admission to the Music Hall Friday and Saturday is $5 per person with the $5 deducted from your evening’s tab.

Irvine Welsh’s Ecstasy Starring Billy Boyd

Award-winning director and producer Rob Heydon has wrapped filming his latest project Ecstasy, a culmination of an 11-year journey. Based on the novel by Irvine Welsh, (the esteemed author of Trainspotting), Ecstasy combines Welsh’s provocative characters and superb story telling with shocking thrills and dark comedy, taking us on a journey into a crafty, drug fuelled contemporary satire on modern culture.

It’s been 11 years since Welsh first met Toronto filmmaker Rob Heydon to discuss the project. In that time, the film has had to recast a lead actor, move shooting to another country, and won and lost financing several times.

“I want Ecstasy to be the most viscerally thrilling,

emotionally exhilarating and life-affirming film,” said Heydon adding, “The world of Ecstasy is challenging. Many of the events are violent and shocking, but above it all, I feel passionately this is a story of great hope, love and rekindling faith.”

Lloyd’s emotional experience is at the heart of this film. Every step he takes leads him deeper into the secret world of his faith and love, forcing him to confront himself and his own beliefs and prejudices. ever changing light, the film reflects the hypnotic essence of life that young people face today.

Ecstasy also features a soundtrack by Coldplay, Primal Scream, Tiesto, Deadmau5 as well as many Canadian Artists including Bonjay, The Mahones, Hawksley Workman and others.

Heydon has researched all sorts of ecstatic experiences, from the Ecstasy drug itself to dancing in a state of trance.

“Everyone is texting and e-mailing, like time has sped up,” said Heydon. “Everyone is in a rush to get there quicker, to reach a transcendental state as fast as they can.” Heydon added, “If there’s a pill, they’ll take it. But what are the repercussions of that on their family, friends and society at large?”
