Serious Man Movie Trailer




Plot:
“A Serious Man is the story of an ordinary man’s search for clarity in a universe where Jefferson Airplane is on the radio and F-Troop is on TV. It is 1967, and Larry Gopnik (Michael Stuhlbarg), a physics professor at a quiet Midwestern university, has just been informed by his wife Judith (Sari Lennick) that she is leaving him. She has fallen in love with one of his more pompous colleagues, Sy Ableman (Fred Melamed), who seems to her a more substantial person than the feckless Larry. Larry’s unemployable brother Arthur (Richard Kind) is sleeping on the couch, his son Danny (Aaron Wolf) is a discipline problem and a shirker at Hebrew school, and his daughter Sarah (Jessica McManus) is filching money from his wallet in order to save up for a nose job. While his wife and Sy Ableman blithely make new domestic arrangements, and his brother becomes more and more of a burden, an anonymous hostile letter-writer is trying to sabotage Larry’s chances for tenure at the university. Also, a graduate student seems to be trying to bribe him for a passing grade while at the same time threatening to sue him for defamation. Plus, the beautiful woman next door torments him by sunbathing nude. Struggling for equilibrium, Larry seeks advice from three different rabbis. Can anyone help him cope with his afflictions and become a righteous person – a mensch – a serious man?”

-should be good being that it is directed by Joel Coen (The Big Lebowski, O Brother, Where Art Thou?)

Jimi Hendrix's Roadie Says He Was Murdered By His Manager



Website Daily mail reports that former roadie James 'Tappy' Wright claims that the guitar legend Jimi Hendrix was murdered by his manager Michael Jeffrey in his London hotel room in his new book 'Rock Roadie'. He claims that Jeffrey confessed to him two years before the manager was killed in a plane crash. Wright says: "I can still hear that conversation, see the man I'd known for so much of my life, his face pale, hand clutching at his glass in sudden rage." Then he is quoted as saying, "I was in London the night of Jimi's death and together with some old friends... we went round to Monika's hotel room, got a handful of pills and stuffed them into his mouth...then poured a few bottles of red wine deep into his windpipe." He said, "I had to do it. Jimi was worth much more to me dead than alive," Jeffrey told Wright. "That son of a bitch was going to leave me. If I lost him, I'd lose everything." He had recently taken out a life insurance policy worth $2 million (£1.2 million), with Jeffrey as beneficiary. The coroner recorded the death as "barbiturate intoxication and inhalation of vomit".

Movie Spotlight: 35 Shots of Rum



David Parkinson from the magazine Empire has given the movie "35 Shots of Rum" 5 out of 5 stars. May be something to check out. His review is below.



Plot
The family dynamic between a father and daughter is altered with the arrival of another in her life.

Review
Harking to Ozu's genius for capturing the rythyms of the everyday, Claire Denis celebrates the often-overlooked traits of trust, acceptance and love in this exquisite domestic drama. Indeed, taciturn widower Alex Descas and student daughter Mati Diop are so attuned that they rarely need to speak to communicate and their relationships with tenement neighbours prove just as intuitive. It's not all harmony - both train driver Descas and cabby Nicole Dogue have their secrets, while Gregoire Colin struggles to express his feelings for Diop, who isn't quite sure where her life is heading. With Agnes Godard's subtle imagery making the mundane seem reassuring, this has a quiet confidence to match its compassion.


Verdict
Superbly played and realised, this stays with you.

Paul McCartney: 'For The Record'



It was rumored on T.V. that Michael Jackson left McCartney his 50 per cent stake in ATV/ Sony publishing - which own a lot of the Beatles music catalogue. McCartney responded on his website Paulmccartney.com in a message entitled 'For The Record'. McCartney wrote, "Some time ago, the media came up with the idea that Michael Jackson was going to leave his share in the Beatles songs to me in his will which was completely made up and something I didn’t believe for a second.

"Now the report is that I am devastated to find that he didn’t leave the songs to me. This is completely untrue. I had not thought for one minute that the original report was true and therefore, the report that I’m devastated is also totally false, so don’t believe everything you read folks!

"In fact, though Michael and I drifted apart over the years, we never really fell out, and I have fond memories of our time together. At times like this, the press do tend to make things up, so occasionally, I feel the need to put the record straight."

Spike Jonze and Kanye West At The Los Angeles Film Festival



Spike Jonze and Kanye West showed up at the Los Angeles Film Festival to premiere their film collaboration, We Were Once A Fairytale. The project grew from a video that Jonze's brother Squeak E. Clean of N.A.S.A. was working on for the song 808s & Heartbreak:

In the film, Kanye plays himself drunk at a club acting belligerent and boastful, telling starstruck club-goers that the song playing in the club is his. He wanders into a side room where he encounters a beautiful woman. They start having sex and then he passes out on her leopard print dress. When he comes to, he finds himself in the VIP room with his pants down – he was hallucinating and fucking the pillow. The realization startles him and he rushes to the bathroom where he vomits what look like rose petals.



Kanye finds a bowie knife in the bathroom and cuts into his stomach, spilling a torrent of more petals. He digs in the knife deeper and then with his hand rips out a small furry rodent, like a demon, only its quite cute. When Kanye realizes it’s connected to him with an umbilical cord, he pulls it hard, ripping it out of him for good. He then puts the demon on the sink and hands him a tiny bowie knife to fit the critter’s scale who then uses it to commit hari kari.

"I promised the last person to finally say “no” to compensation($3500 guitar) that I would write and produce three songs about my experience with United Airlines and make videos for each to be viewed online by anyone in the world. United: Song 1 is the first of those songs. United: Song 2 has been written and video production is underway. United: Song 3 is coming. I promise."

Since being posted Monday, the video has received nearly a million and a half views. One of those views came from United Airlines, who this week released the following statement:

"This has struck has a chord with us. We are in conversations with one another to make what happened right, and while we mutually agree that this should have been fixed much sooner, Dave Carroll’s excellent video provides United with a unique learning opportunity that we would like to use for training purposes to ensure all customers receive better service from us."

Damn, as a guy that travels with his guitar. I will not be traveling on United!!

The Los Angeles Lakers Sign Ron Artest



Yup, L.A. Lakers signed Ron Artest in a restaurant in Beverly Hills last night. Lakers acquired Artest via free agency from Houston. Artest will be wearing #37. Artest said,"I was trying to figure out a number, I was talking to my wife and kids. I was on my twitter, MySpace, and Facebook and asking everybody to help me pick a number. On my MySpace, somebody named Trish T he Dish came up with the #37 and said that Michael Jackson's "Thriller" was 37 weeks at number one of all time. 23 I was going to choose, it was available, it's a great number but, I thought (with) that 37 and "Thriller", I can make that a new great number. I think more kids should start getting the #37 for a great human being, since Michael loved all people. I think I'm representing greatness in wearing #37." We shall see...

The World Says Goodbye To The Biggest Star On The Planet









Maya Angelou wrote in tribute for the occasion called "We Had Him":

Beloveds, now we know that we know nothing, now that our bright and shining star can slip away from our fingertips like a puff of summer wind.

Without notice, our dear love can escape our doting embrace. Sing our songs among the stars and walk our dances across the face of the moon.

In the instant that Michael is gone, we know nothing. No clocks can tell time. No oceans can rush our tides with the abrupt absence of our treasure.

Though we are many, each of us is achingly alone, piercingly alone.

Only when we confess our confusion can we remember that he was a gift to us and we did have him.

He came to us from the creator, trailing creativity in abundance.

Despite the anguish, his life was sheathed in mother love, family love, and survived and did more than that.

He thrived with passion and compassion, humor and style. We had him whether we know who he was or did not know, he was ours and we were his.

We had him, beautiful, delighting our eyes.

His hat, aslant over his brow, and took a pose on his toes for all of us.

And we laughed and stomped our feet for him.

We were enchanted with his passion because he held nothing. He gave us all he had been given.

Today in Tokyo, beneath the Eiffel Tower, in Ghana's Black Star Square.

In Johannesburg and Pittsburgh, in Birmingham, Alabama, and Birmingham, England

We are missing Michael.

But we do know we had him, and we are the world.
