Kaiju, however, gave Ciccone total freedom. He liked the location, he says, because it reminds him of The Wine Cellar when Jim Duncan owned itwhere he worked for six years. Located underground with brightly colored glass in the windows and turquoise waves on the walls — diners are eye-level with busy Sherman and Fourth Avenue — Kaiju has a whimsical, underwater feel.
Try a signature drink, like the Mothra-hito: whiskey, ginger liqueur, lemonade, muddled lime and mint. Another reason Ciccone likes the name? Bulger represented everything good and bad about Boston: he was fiercely loyal to family, ambitious, territorial, bigoted, shrewd, mean, and really good at staying quiet when it served his own interests. At the time, Bulger was kind of like Robin Hood, only he kept all the money for himself and everyone was pretty sure he strangled a bunch of people.
The Boston in this movie feels leached of all personality. The Departed, which featured Jack Nicholson as a Bulger stand-in, was the most recent movie to get Boston right. His Bulger has the menacing part down. The Bulger Depp portrays is pretty much always someone to be feared, making this a good performance but a bad portrayal of a real-life figure.
Neither his personality nor the city that his personality reflected can be found anywhere in Black Mass. Buckley, Jr. DN Rated R. MB Rated R.

The guys, ages 21 to 23, are all decked out in black and are completely at home together, perhaps from all their time spent playing video games and puttering around malls on Razor scooters. The in-your-face, emo-rock act started back in in secret. But once the new band came to light, their folks were accepting.
This music seemed edgy and expressed how the guys felt about life. They needed the outlet. The Lunas, who are often mistaken as twins, first met guitarist David Wen in marching band, where even among the nerds they say they were still teased for being different. Some online comments about their new single are critical. Still, many in the scene have been congratulatory.
While some members have come and gone, this is the lineup, they say. Drummer Mayhew joined last year after knowing the other guys from the local scene. Van Buskirk, found online, joined earlier this year. The guys hope this translates to something much bigger. A health scare for Phil a couple of years back inspired.
The recording and tour were so harmonious that a follow-up seemed obvious. Choosing the songs, Dave says, was a matter of just remembering where his brother was coming from years ago when the Blasters were young blues-loving punks.
The band was beloved by critics and fellow musicians — in one month, they played gigs with the diverse likes of punks the Cramps, honky-tonkers Asleep at the Wheel and stadium-rocking royalty Queen — but never broke through commercially.
But Carbon Leaf brings more of a Celtic folk feel to its jam rock. Together for more than 20 years, the five-piece should bring an insanely tight and energetic show when it takes to the Big Dipper stage Sunday night. Those interested in more unusual instrumentations like bouzouki, fiddle, accordion and penny whistle will find all that at a Carbon Leaf show.
As soon as he starts finger-picking his resonator guitar and evoking the spirit of blues legends, you forget all about appearances. With his wife Breezy rapid-fire scratching on a washboard and Ben Bussell on a sparse drum kit, the Big Damn Band makes a big damn ruckus, which has made them favorites with punks on the Warped Tour as well as traditionalists who love the old-timey vibe.

I will remember exactly where I was standing behind the couch, because I could not sit downwhat I was wearing my custom Hawks 12 jersey with KNUCKLES on the back, of course and that my mouth and eyes were wide open in absolute disbelief.
I looked around the room at all my friends and we just stared at the TV in silence. We all realized it was over, time to move on. But now? Football is back! With my jersey on and a beer in my hand, I will go back to yelling at the TV, flying my Seahawks flag proudly, and cheering on my team I hope can make it all the way again. Go Hawks!

PST: Some bands force a second record out quickly, while you guys have seemed to take your time, refining and changing your sound over the past couple of years. Did you aim to take your time with this record, or was that a byproduct of touring or other priorities and obligations? From there we spent a year writing and making the record, and by the time it was finished last September, we decided it would be better to release it the beginning of this year.
We thought if there was any way to avoid the sophomore slump, it would be by taking our time and not giving ourselves that unneeded pressure.

Kathryn Bigelow,35mm, 95 min. At the beginning of documentary Beware of Mr. Bulger bills himself as a writer for Rolling Stone in order to get an interview with the reclusive Baker — this is a lie. However, the article Bulger comes up with once he meets with Baker in his South Africa compound does get published in Rolling Stoneproviding the catalyst for the film.
The brash Bulger, and his interactions with Baker, become a hilarious side story to that of Baker, the red-headed wild man who helped pioneer rock drumming as a member of Cream, with Eric Clapton and Jack Bruce. However, Beware of Mr. It is a vinyl version of the longtime hard rocking NorCal band's current Koi No Yokan album that dropped a couple of months ago on CD and, most agree, is a return to form for the band that ruled things in their sphere of metal back in the 90's.

In fact, we want to celebrate man's best friend with our first-ever Dog Day Afternoon on Saturday, February 9th! It is true that the film dramatizes Lincoln's greatest achievement by showing the less than pure, even immoral, underbelly of the politics involved: the cajoling, lying, shaming, threatening and bribery.
In doing so, it also argues that a radical "killjoy" like Thaddeus Stevens has to publicly repress his own views in order to get things done -- in this case, passing the 13th Amendment, which ended slavery. Imagine radical voices not being heard in this country! Hard to believe. Frank condemns the film for what it doesn't show: those times when such morally compromised methods lead to or support political corruption.
But he never really gets around to the fundamental point here: politics is always compromised, even when on the side of angels. And contrary to his take, the film does make distinctions in compromise: Lincoln goes beyond the law with the intention of freeing the slaves who are legally enslavedbut doesn't compromise with the Confederates in order to end the war when it wouldn't serve his very moral goal of changing the law.
And, more importantly, the film shows us what's needed when democratic compromise breaks down. Adam Smith argued that slavery could be more easily ended under a "despotic" rather than "free government" when it was the "freedom of the free" that was "the cause of the great oppression of the slaves," that is, when "every law is made by their masters, who will never pass any thing prejudicial to themselves.
For this, his critics called him a despot. They weren't entirely wrong, but he proved to be the kind of despot we needed. We haven't really had Abe the Dictator presented to us in the movies, for which I found the film -- whatever creative license Tony Kushner took with the script -- refreshingly honest.
Widely regarded as one of the most brilliant songwriters of her generation, Suzanne Vega emerged as a leading figure of the folk-music revival of the early s when, accompanying herself on acoustic guitar, she sang what has been labeled contemporary folk or neo-folk songs of her own creation in Greenwich Village clubs.

The show tells the story of The Beatles before they were famous, when there were five members even before Ringo was a member and they were five working-class lads from the docks of Liverpool, playing seedy nightclubs while honing their epic new sound.
The album features the brother-and-sister vocals of Rob and Rachel Kolar singing over an amalgam of outlaw country, folk-rock and rockabilly that should tickle the fancy of any fan of such genres. At times they sound like Johnny and June; others, Exene and John.
I caught up with the band, whose will take their twangy sound up the West Coast and around the country in the coming months. Rachel: They do. I think The White Stripes made journalists question the authenticity of the sibling band. Ripping chords and solos greeted the full house, which may have not expected such noise, given Fade 's somber feel. See more photos from the Hollywood performance here.
It seriously rocks. FIDLAR 's long-awaited debut album is a Pabst-soaked party record with strong songwriting anchoring its punk attitude. But all the funny lyrics in the world wouldn't mean a thing if the songs themselves didn't captivate you, and they do, across FIDLAR 's 14 tracks.
There's nary a hint of cynical sneer, and though they play with sloppy punk abandon, their hooks are tight as a six-pack ring. FIDLAR sing about who they are and what they do, whether that's waking, baking, skating in mechanical hedonism or reflecting that said young hedonism can "kind of suck.
The band has been selling its debut record at shows for some time now, but it's officially out in stores Jan. They're also playing a release show at LA Fort Jan. I caught up with Carper as the band was set to play SF. There's poop involved. Do those usually come first before the lyrics and sort of guide them, or do you guys kind of joke and throw stuff around to see what sticks once the songs are written? Carper: It kinda matters.
Unfortunately, another African American cultural landmark, the nearby legendary Lenox Lounge jazz club, recently faced eviction. Before American Idol.

Over the decades countless greats came to shine courtesy of the Apollo. Read about more embarrassing moments here. This year, the big story was Jodie Foster and her sprawling, sort-of coming-out speech upon receiving the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award.

DO it! Ten years after director Jonathan Kesselman blew our minds with The Hebrew Hammer a spoof-driven "Jewsploitation" made in homage to the great Blacksploitation films of the '70she's ready to do it all again with a sequel titled The Hebrew Hammer vs Hitler. In the original film, the crime fighter known as the Hebrew Hammer played to perfection by Adam Goldberg is on a mission to save Hanukkah from the evil son of Santa Claus Andy Dick in a role he was born to play who plans to outlaw the Jewish holiday.

Justin Timberlake has the internet and me, who am I kidding? After a simple message on his Twitter last night telling people to tune in this morning, he tweeted saying just "To Whom It May Concern I'm Ready" and a link to a video with the same name.
The clip features the artist walking through many rooms with his voice over answering the question about whether he is done making music and explaining his process making music. The video ends with him going into the booth in a recording studio, putting on a pair of headphones, and saying "I'm Ready.

In the process of carrying the pool with live swans upstairs to the sewing room you have to make due when living in the city I heard a sound come from my lower back that sounded like an excerpt from a composition by Harry Partch … Yes, Christmas came early and Santa brought me sciatica. Even though I specifically asked for a pony. With sciatica. What is sciatica? It is a set of symptoms including pain that may be caused by general compression or irritation of one of five spinal nerve roots that give rise to each sciatic nerveor by compression or irritation of the left or right or both sciatic nerves, the source of which typically stems from tiny devils prodding the inside of your bowels after the neighborhood witch has cursed you.
This is exactly what my leg looks like now. What would he buy? Bear in mind that this list only scratches the surface since over the years Groening and company have incorporated such a long list of hit songs into The Simpsons. In fact the show must have racked up quite a bill in copyright fees to license all this popular music for the show. But it is worth it since music often plays such an important role in so many episodes of The Simpsons - especially the Homer related songs.
For example, when Homer and Marge pop into the open house next door to them and he imagines buying the house and what it would be like living next door to himself, just how horrible that would be, as he visualizes himself always playing Journey ' s "Separate Ways" and at way too loud volumes. As Tarantino has stated over and over in interviews, he clearly wants his audience to take sides, cheer at the ending — not, I conclude, reflect on the problematic that the house negro presents.
Ishmael Reed really didn't like the film: Throughout the movie,Tarantino reminds us that the Foxx character is unique. B DuBois. I wish that Hudlin had written the movie. As it stands, Foxx is chained to this stupid screenplay. The central conflict is not between an ex-slave and a slaver but between two archetypes—the militant and the sellout. But in creating Stephen, Tarantino necessarily trafficked in the stereotypes he was ostensibly responding to.
Samuel L. The use of this character as a comic foil seems essentially disrespectful to the history of slavery. Oppression, almost by definition, is a set of circumstances that bring out the worst in most people. A response to slavery—even a cowardly, dishonorable one like what we witness with Stephen—highlights the depravity of the institution. Jackson reverses the anger that 70s black militants felt toward the Uncle Tom figure into an actorly endorsement.
He embodies the dangerous Negro stereotypes harbored by Tarantino and every Huck Finn wannabe. Finally, Henry Louis Gates, Jr. What was that about? What did that take? He can't say he didn't know the material. One of my American Western heroes is not John Ford, obviously. To say the least, I hate him. Forget about faceless Indians he killed like zombies.
It really is people like that that kept alive this idea of Anglo-Saxon humanity compared to everybody else's humanity -- and the idea that that's hogwash is a very new idea in relative terms. And you can see it in the cinema in the '30s and '40s -- it's still there.
And even in the '50s. Despite the film's profound flaws, I think it has more to say about America's racial history than any other film in recent memory. But, minimally, the film is worthwhile simply as the cause of that Armond White review. Broadcast — Berberian Sound Studio. This posthumous Broadcast album is the soundtrack to an upcoming independent film about a sound engineer who loses his mind while soundtracking an Italian giallo film — think Suspiria.
True to its background, the soundtrack is full of ominous organ tones, whispered Italian and the terrifying sounds of screaming into madness.
This may not sound like the recipe for a Broadcast album, which typically are more subtly haunting works of droning electonic pop, featuring the ethereal vocals of the late Trish Keenan. We are once again right in the middle of awards season. The Golden Globes are on Sunday, January 13th. The Oscar Nominations usually come out after the Globes are aired, but they are out a bit earlier this year. The Oscars take place on Sunday, February 24th this year. The Oscar Nominations come out this Thursday, the 10th of January.
They came out last year on the 24th of January! So this is the time of year when I like to get together with my coworker Jackie and talk about what we think will be nominated. And also what we hope is nominated. I basically like to pretend that we are members of the Academy putting in our votes for the various Oscar categories. If you are feeling nostalgic for last year's Oscars, here is our Oscar Nominations Predictions from We both did pretty good last year.
If you include our possible picks, Jackie beat me in her predictions by 5 picks. She got 45 out of 49 nominations correct. I got 40 out of 49 correct. I never imagined that Extremely Loud would have made it into last year's top 9 Best Picture nominations. But there is always a movie like Crash or Finding Neverland that somehow sneaks into 5 or 10 nominations for Best Picture.
I don't think there will be a movie like that this year. There are simply too many good movies this year. But you never know! Jackie and I both see a ton of movies every year and of course have our opinions about what our favorite films and performances were.
Are you ready? Here we go Here we are again. Rushing to see a ton of movies in December. So I will wait to see if those two get nominations. But I will also probably only see those if they get nominations.
I just finished my top ten films of the year list. That list is here. There are still a couple films that might have ended up on my top ten but I have not had a chance to see them yet. This is why Jackie is still waiting to post her top ten list. She really wants to see everything before she comes up with that final list. There are some movie that I really enjoyed this year that did not end up in my top ten. I was a big fan of the Christopher Nolan Batman movies.
I am just happy that Tim Burton made a good movie again! Lets get to the nomination predictions. This is how we are going to do it this year. We will pick our 10 or 5 predictions in order of likelihood. And then pick 2 alternates that we think might possibly be nominated. Then we will discuss possible spoilers and films we would like to see get nominated. Best Picture Zero Dark Thirty and Argo are basically guaranteed to get nominated. And I also think that Django Unchained and Moonrise Kingdom will get in there as long as there are 10 films that make it in.
And I really do think that Amour is going to sneak into the Best Picture category. Every once in while a foreign film does sneak into the Best Picture category. It won the Foreign Film category that year. I just saw Amour so it is very much on my mind. It was a powerful amazing film. It just might sneak into the Best Picture category.
Especially if they see it the weekend before they have to pick their best picture nominees. I am still holding out a glimpse of hope that Cloud Atlas gets nominated. But it was my favorite film of the year. I know Jackie would also love to see it sneak in there. The Master could easily take the 10th spot away from Beasts of the Southern Wild. And there very well might only be 7 or 8 nominees this year.
There were 9 nominees last year. Anna Karenina was another one of my favorites of the year. And I would love for it to also sneak in there. Maybe in the place of Life Of Pi. Best Director David O. Russel could sneak in here for Silver Linings Playbook.
A well made rom-com. I would really love for Silver Linings Playbook to get no nominations this year. It would be a big upset. I know Jackie would be upset! But nothing would make me happier to see Cloud Atlas take its place in the Picture and Director category. I think Michael Haneke also might sneak into this category and take Ang Lee's spot. I know a lot of people either loved or hated The Master. It is sort of like this years Tree of LIfe.
The movie was not one of my favorites. I really think that Tom Hooper is going to be left out of this category. Best Actor He was amazing in Amour. A truly heartbreaking performance. Nothing over the top. Just a restrained beautiful performance. I just really don't want this movie to get any nominations! Jackie is correct in giving a shout out to Jack Black in Bernie.
Best Actress I really didn't hate the movie. Jennifer Lawrence is almost guaranteed to get nominated here. But really only Lawrence and Chastain are my solid predictions here. I am hoping that Riva and Cotillard get in there. And Naomi Watts will most likely get in there too. But Emannuelle Riva was just so amazing in Amour. She really deserves to win this category. She might just do it if Chastain and Lawrence divide up the votes of everyone else. I could also see Keira Knightley sneaking into this category.
Like most years, there were just not a lot of amazing Oscar type roles for women this year. Helen Mirren could also sneak in here for Hitchcock. But the movie is getting such horrible reviews. And Halle Berry could do it here. But like Jackie said, she does deserve a mention!
Best Supporting Actor Jackson were all amazing in Django Unchained. And it would be fun to see all three of them get nominated. John Goodman is just always so amazing. Jim Broadbent was great. They all played multiple roles in the movie and it would be nice to see at least one of them get recognized.
I thought Jude Law was fantastic in Anna Karenina and would love to see him get nominated here. But his character was not showy and he was not very likable. Best Supporting Actress I was not a fan of the movie. I thought she was one of the great things about it. But she is in the movie for such a very short time. I have not yet seen The Sessions or The Paperboy. I have not seen the movie but she is always great in whatever she does.
Ann Dowd could also sneak in here if enough people see Compliance. I really liked the movie even though it was difficult to sit through. But she is great in it. I would love for her to show up in this category. But something could easily sneak in here like Arbitrage or Promised Land.
I would love for Cloud Atlas to get nominated here. I am really hoping that it at least gets a couple nominations. It was a complicated script adapted from a well liked novel.
The Perks of Being A Wallflowe r was one of my favorite movies of the year. And this is really the only category it has a chance of getting a nomination in. It would be well deserved.
I don't think Pixar will win this year but I do think they will be nominated. Hotel Transylvania could easily take the place of Paranorman as it did for the Golden Globe nominations this year. This category often surprised me. As Jackie said, a foreign animated film also sometimes gets in here.
And The Illusionist was nominated the year before that. The Painting could be that movie that sneaks in there this year. This category can have between three and five nominees. But I think it will have all five this year. One of my favorite categories is Best Original Score. I am a huge fan of scores. And sometimes a score can really make me fall in love with a film. It is seriously one of my favorite categories of the night. I really hope that Cloud Atlas is nominated in this category.
It was one of my favorite scores of the year. But I did think that the soundtrack to Zero Dark Thirty was more interesting and memorable. That is our predictions for the Oscar nominations! I will be keeping my fingers crossed for Cloud Atlas!
So check back to see how we did! Godfathers of alternative rock, Joy Division, reinvented music in the post-punk era, creating a dark, hypnotic, and intense sound that has influenced rock ever since. On January 5, we had our very first auction ofwith the inimitable hurricane orator, Don Barriswho managed to rock, rattle and cajole bids out of unsuspecting Saturday Amoeba shoppers.
Even though it came on the heels of people being broke from the holidays they still reached down deep and gave, mainly because Don was so damn funny. And his determination to beat his last auction totals helped to keep the competitive spirit going at full throttle. It was raucous and rollicking - and a great success with all of this month's proceeds benefiting the Rainforest Action Network.
We have been working with the good folks at RAN since we opened our first store in Berkeley in We share concern about the dwindling rainforests and the global environmental impact and we are thankful for the work they do each year.
