baby genius cast - August Rush

August Rush

August Rush

There’s music in the wind and sky. Can you hear it? And there’s hope. Can you feel it? The boy called August Rush can. The music mysteriously draws him, penniless and alone, to New York City in a quest to find – somehow, someway – the parents separated from him years earlier. And along the way he may also find the musical genius hidden within him. Experience the magic of this rhapsodic epic of the heart starring Freddie Highmore (as August), Keri Russell, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Terrence Howard and Robin Williams. "I believe in music the way some people believe in fairy tales," August says. Open your heart and listen. You’ll believe, too.

Music has long been considered a universal language with the power to bring people together, but can the simple act of playing music possibly unite a child with a mother and father who live in two different cities and don't even know of the child's existence? Having shared one extraordinary night, classical cellist Lyla Novacek (Keri Russell) and Irish singer and songwriter Louis Connelly (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) were a union meant to be that was torn apart by circumstances and a protective father (William Sadler). After eleven years, both Lyla and Louis have given up performing only to find that they are unhappy and searching for a sense of fulfillment that will ultimately lead both artists back to music and performing. Evan (Freddie Highmore) is an 11-year old orphan who's grown up hearing music in everything around him and is convinced that his real parents want him and will find him with the help of music. Driven by his innate musical genius and a powerful compulsion to perform before the world, Evan runs away from the orphanage and is initially taken in by a street man known as Wizard (Robin Williams) who encourages his musical talent and renames him August Rush and, later, by a local priest who arranges for August to receive a Julliard education. August is a child prodigy who excels beyond even the wildest expectations and earns the opportunity of a lifetime--a chance to perform in front of an enormous audience in New York's Central Park. The question is; can his performance possibly reach the audience August really craves? While elements of this film are completely unbelievable (take August's instant prowess on the guitar or his immediate and sophisticated grasp of musical notation and musical theory), the message of the universality of music and the notion that "the music is all around us, all you have to do is listen" is both compelling and powerful. --Tami Horiuchi

Here Lies Love

Here Lies Love

By David Byrne & Fatboy Slim " Here Lies Love ", A song cycle about Imelda Marcos & Estrella Cumpass

“The story I am interested in is about asking what drives a powerful person—what makes them tick? How do they make and then remake themselves? I thought to myself, wouldn’t it be great if—as this piece would be principally composed of clubby dance music—one could experience it in a club setting? Could one bring a ‘story’ and a kind of theater to the disco? Was that possible? If so, wouldn’t that be amazing!”
—DB, from the introduction

I was around 12-years-old when my father took time off from his day job as a traveling absentee father, and arranged to finally meet the most handsome and best-smelling of his nine abandoned children.

The meeting place was my childhood home on a bright, sunny, summer afternoon. I remember feeling a roiling storm of contradictory emotions: hurt and anticipation, anger and curiosity. More than anything else, I looked forward to unloading 12 years of playing-catch-with-a-brickwall animus on its deserving progenitor.

Being the emotional genius that my poppa is(was?), he anticipated a less than welcoming reception. In an attempt to preempt and ameliorate my prepubescent indignation, he came bearing gifts.

My mother must have told him I was into learning and shit, because he arrived with a milkcrate packed neatly with 12-15 hardcover books that collectively comprised an edition of the World Book Encyclopedia that was about 20 years out of date.

Before I could launch into The Airing of Grievances he produced a vaguely familiar broad smile and said "these are for you."

He told me a "friend" gave him these books to give to me.

Over the years, I set aside the animosity I had for my father. I realized that he was absent not because I was an unworthy son but because he was a unworthy father. Nature has installed remarkably efficient mechanisms for making babies, but it has far fewer fail safes for making parents. Once I recognized that my father was absent because nature simply did not equipped him to be a parent, I could no more be angry at him for depriving me of a father, than I could be angry at clouds for depriving me of sunshine.

Even still, one question lay dormant whispering softly yet persistently for an answer: who the f-word was papa's encyclopedia-fairy friend?

Last week while I was out exploring a historic Detroit landmark for the (ashamedly) first time, fate introduced me to the answer to this lingering mystery. Fate also introduced me to a brand new enigma.

I wandered into the foyer of John K. King Used and Rare Books and was met by... a collection of World Book Encyclopedias, milkcrates, and a sign:

"Free books. Please do not take crates"

And with that, I was introduced to my father's "friend." One mystery solved. Now, the enigma...

As I mined the expansive, wonderfully dusty shelves of John K. King's store for vintage photography and science literature I knew I wanted to share the awesomeness of this place by sharing the story of one of its patrons in The People of Detroit.

I initially put a call out on Twitter and Facebook asking fans of this place to inbox me. I got a few replies, but this whole approach just didn't seem right. I started this project because I wanted to profile people who I just happened across in my daily life as a Detroiter. Putting out a casting call on the net just seemed antithetical to the project's spirit.

I decided to go about finding a subject the old fashioned TPOD way: by standing around in one place like a creep and waiting for an interesting person to happen across. I did that for about 45 minutes and was on my way out of the door when the young woman pictured above walked in.

When I was planning this photo - before I had even found a subject - I previsualized a person with interesting eyes looking at the camera through the selves. I was excited when I saw Tracy (Traci, Trace?). She personified what I was looking for.

I usually feel a certain level of self-consciousness when I approach complete strangers and ask them to take their picture. I suppressed that inhibition, approached Tracy, and shook her hand - firmly. I consider all handshakes a referendum on the shakers' respective willingness to skin a bear, eat its innards and wear the inside of its head as a ceremonial hat. Tracy must have a similar philosophy because her handshake was competitively firm.

Then again, it may have something to do with the firm grip she undoubtedly developed when her dad taught her how to fly planes when she was a teen. Or maybe it was her background as a Taekwondo black belt. Or the fact that in her spare time, she likes to watch documentaries on Navy SEALS.

I never would have guessed any of this from looking at her. An enigma indeed.

We talked for a good thirty minutes about her plans to travel across Asia, her sports medicine studies at Wayne State University, and about the scar she got when she injured her Achilles Heal doing Taekwondo and how a tendon was taken from elsewhere in her leg, stretched down to and looped through a hole drilled in her heel bone.

"And after all that, you still do Taekwondo?"


I didn't ask, but I'm pretty sure Tracy actually has ceremonial empty bear head at home. Such a pleasantly unusual young woman.

I gave her a card for TPOD, but negle

The Little Rascals: The Complete Collection

The Little Rascals: The Complete Collection spans the years of 1929-1938. This collections contains all 80 of the original Little Rascals theatrical talkies in their entirety; fully Remastered, Restored and Uncut. This amazing 8-disc set contains a collectible booklet, loads of nostalgic bonus footage, photos and much more! This preeminent collection is a must-have for fans, both old and new.

Stills from The Little Rascals: The Complete Collection (Click for larger image)

Children, with their fusion of innocence and mischief, can be natural comedians, and The Little Rascals plunders youthful exuberance for all it's worth. This series of short films (a.k.a. Our Gang) is most famous for a handful of glorious imps: Spanky, the scheming ringleader; Alfalfa, the softhearted second-in-command; and Buckwheat, with his skeptical sideways looks and big smiles. But over the years there were dozens of Rascals, and The Little Rascals: The Complete Collection features just about all of them, spanning 80 talkie shorts (with three silent shorts included in the extra features). Historians and nostalgists speak fondly about how natural the kids were, but that's nonsense--the kids that stand out are the ones who act like little adults, such as when Jackie and Chubby compete for their pretty schoolteacher's affections, or when Spanky and Alfalfa conduct the He-Man Woman Haters Club like middle-aged Shriners, or when the kids all put on a show (the Our Gang Follies in 1936 and 1938 are pretty impressive theatrical spectacles). The earlier years were rougher in structure and more improvisational, but as the series went along it became more scripted and shaped. Contemporary audiences are likely to prefer these later productions.
The Little Rascals can also righteously claim to be a racial groundbreaker, with its depiction of African-American and white kids playing together, with black kids--particularly Matthew "Stymie" Beard--frequently taking the lead in the shenanigans. Nonetheless, viewers should be prepared for stereotypes, all common to the era and without any real malice, but hardly pleasant. This painful element gets addressed in several of the bonus features; in one of four interviews with surviving Rascals, Dickie Moore reflects acutely on the racism of the time and tells some powerful anecdotes. All of these interviews are fascinating and among the best reasons for any fan of The Little Rascals to own this set--though this incredible abundance of Little Rascals material seems pretty must-have for anyone with fond memories of watching these kids, either on TV or the big screen. --Bret Fetzer
