Soul In The Park Turns One

Posted by Gomez Comes Alive!, July 6, 2009 09:52am | Post a Comment
One of my favorite deejay nights happens every other Wednesday at Footsie's in Highland Park. Rani D's Soul In The Park turns one on Wednesday, July 8th. Rani is the resident deejay for the night, which includes special guest spots from deejays from thoughout the city. Every night is special. It feels more like a curated art show than a club. It could be Jazz one night, Hip-Hop the next, Cumbia, Brazilian; you name it, he has had it there. Soul In The Park is a music lover's dream. For this special event, Rani's guest will be Buyepongo, a live Cumbia group. They don't have many bands at Footsie's, so this should be a night to remember.

MIchael Jackson Organ Tribute

Posted by Mr. Chadwick, July 5, 2009 11:25pm | Post a Comment
I know that the world is currently inundated with MJ news. That said, I figured that since I made a church organ related post last week, I should follow it up with the footage from Robert Ridgell's tribute to Michael. Although the Trinity Wall Street Church's organ is an electric facsimile of a pipe organ, I'll give them a pass, as it seems their old pipe organ was taken out by 9-11 debris & fallout.

Up & Down: Up (2009) & Drag Me to Hell (2009)

The Plot. Two things struck me about the celebrated elliptical opening sequence of UP, where the young version of Carl, the protagonist, is shown to age and fall in love with Ellie, who remains dead for most the picture: (1) Despite Pixar's raison d'etre, overloaded digital spectacle, what the company excels at is character portraiture. This tends to be done in the first third of their stories, after which the plot kicks in, and I get bored. Unlike Wall-E, however, UP is mostly about Carl just hanging out in his floating house, talking to this chubby little cub scout stowaway, and befriending some linguistically enhanced canines. All of which makes it the best Pixar film to date. (2) Seijun Suzuki and Pixar know something about generic expectations that Steven Spielberg doesn't. Like all moviegoers, my emotions are mechanized, habituated responses to the levers, pulleys and cables of traditional storytelling. Thus, in abstracto, I'll feel elation on cue when the hero risks it all to save those more unfortunate than he, even if the particularities involve an Aryan saving some Jews (a lesson that can be had from Star Wars' appropriation of Triumph of The Will). These 2 and 1/2 hour-long movies of Spielberg's could be cut down to a few, brief sequences leading to the big crescendo, and we'd all still have the same reaction. Much like Suzuki tends to jump cut over the dramatic cliches in his films, Carl meets Ellie, they share similar interests, yadda yadda yadda, she's dead, now her absence structures our understanding of Carl for the rest of UP. Less flippantly worded: poetic resonance isn't based on word count, nor are genre pleasures.
