.: The Los Angeles County Museum of Art recently featured an exhibition on Stanley Kubrick.  On Facebook today, I discovered a set of photos taken by Emily Nguyen during her visit to the exhibit in November 2012.  A must-see if you are a Kubrick fan.  I am grateful that Emily has made her photo album public so others can view it.

From the LACMA website: “Stanley Kubrick was known for exerting complete artistic control over his projects; in doing so, he reconceived the genres in which he worked. The exhibition covers the breadth of Kubrick’s practice, beginning with his early photographs for Look magazine, taken in the 1940s, and continuing with his groundbreaking directorial achievements of the 1950s through the 1990s. His films are represented through a selection of annotated scripts, production photography, lenses and cameras, set models, costumes, and props. In addition, the exhibition explores Napoleon and The Aryan Papers, two projects that Kubrick never completed, as well as the technological advances developed and utilized by Kubrick and his team. By featuring this legendary film auteur and his oeuvre as the focus of his first retrospective in the context of an art museum, the exhibition reevaluates how we define the artist in the 21st century, and simultaneously expands upon LACMA’s commitment to exploring the intersection of art and film.”

Samantha Schultz Performing “It’s Too Late”, Featuring Vanessa Collier

Posted in Samantha Schultz on July 16th 2013 by Randy Reichardt

.: Samantha Schultz is a multi-talented Edmonton musician who I have had the good fortune of knowing for the past few years. She writes and sings her own material, and can deliver the goods when singing cover tunes as well. Sam recently graduated from the Berklee College of Music in Boston, and at the Berklee Graduation Commencement Concert, with Carole King watching in the audience, she offered an outstanding reading of King’s classic tune, “It’s Too Late.” Featured in the song is a wicked soprano sax solo by Vanessa Collier. Enjoy, and please share with your friends on every social media site you can.  I am SO proud of her – you will be blown away by her performance of this song.

Monsoon Season In Edmonton.

Jr. Gone Wild Vs The Cranky-Pants Alberta Government

Posted in Jr. Gone Wild on July 4th 2013 by Randy Reichardt

.: Local music legends Jr. Gone Wild are in a dust-up with the Alberta Government over their use of a variation of the Alberta Crest as their logo.  Meanwhile, a petition has been started to “Allow Jr. Gone Wild To Use Their Alberta Crest Logo!”  PLEASE consider adding your name to support a great Edmonton band.  Mike McDonald, leader of the band, could be fined $1,000 for using the altered version of the crest.  And yet variations of the Alberta Crest have been used before, such as by the University of Alberta, and the Alberta Broomball Association.

Do the right thing and sign the petition.  And thank you!
