Kansas City-based Rea's short stars Kip Niven (Jayhawkers, New Year’s Evil), Joicie Appell (Nailbiter), Victor Raider-Wexler (Minority Report), and Nancy Marcy. It was executive produced by Jennifer Blanc-Biehn, Michael Biehn, and Lony Ruhmann.
The script, written by Rea, deals with four elderly people trapped in an elevator on their way to their 50th Class Reunion, and one of them may have forgotten to take some important medication. The film was shot in Kansas City, Missouri, and the director of photography was Hanuman Brown-Eagle.
In addition to a few behind-the-scenes photos from "It's Hell Getting Old," we also have the kick-off announcement for Bbp's Mindless, a mind-bending thriller that marks
Fifty years ago, the tenements, bars and coffee houses of Greenwich Village were the centre of a hip, bohemian society of beatniks and folkniks. That society has long dispersed, most of its landmarks erased by the onslaught of chain stores and fast food outlets. But enough of the Village remains intact that, by squinting in the Arctic freeze last week, it was almost possible to picture a 21-year-old Bob Dylan with his girlfriend, Suze Rotolo, braced against the cold in February 1963 for the covershot of the great Freewheelin' Bob Dylan acoustic LP.
It's not unusual to see couples re-enacting that pose on the corner of West 4th and Jones Street, says Mark Sebastian, a neighbourhood activist, musician
Five decades have passed since America's troubadours and beat poets flocked to Greenwich Village, filling its smoky late-night basement bars and coffee houses with folk songs and influencing some of the most recognisable musicians of the era.
A few landmarks of those bygone bohemian days – most recently portrayed in the Coen brothers' film Inside Llewyn Davis, out on 24 January – still exist. The inspiration for the movie's fictional anti-hero, Davis, was Brooklyn-born Dave Van Ronk, a real- life blues and folk singer with no small talent, who worked with performers such as Pete Seeger and Bob Dylan, but remained rooted in the village until he died in 2002, declining to leave it for any length of time and refusing to fly for many years.
Peggy is a complicated character. Amidst all of her ambitious angst and banter with Rizzo and Ginsberg, it's easy to forget that this is a woman who comes from a deeply religious Catholic family and just a few short years ago gave birth to a child fathered by her co-worker, Pete Campbell (Vincent Kartheiser). Like most good lapsed Catholics, she's got major issues with guilt and self-esteem. So much so that while she was momentarily blinded enough to believe that Abe was on the cusp of a marriage proposal, she quickly
Levon Helm – a life in pictures
A shorthand way of describing Levon Helm, who has died of cancer aged 71, would be as the drummer with the Band, who were Bob Dylan's backing group as he made the leap from folk to rock, and then forged a hugely influential career of their own in the late 1960s and 70s. This would have made Helm eminent enough, but his career stretched in many other directions, as drummer with the rock'n'roller Ronnie Hawkins, solo artist, prolific film actor and, most recently, host of the all-star Midnight Ramble Sessions. He was an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, and a fine and distinctive singer.
He was born Mark Lavon Helm in Elaine, Arkansas, the second of Nell and Diamond Helm's four children. His father was a cotton farmer but also a music lover, and the Grand Ole Opry
The Rolling Stones’s greatest-hits package “Hot Rocks,” released in late 1971, provided the music for an all-star charity event held last night at a sold-out Carnegie Hall. Twenty-one acts ranging in quality and invention covered the 21 songs on “Hot Rocks,” all but two of which were written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards.
As the event began to unfold, it seemed only good will would carry the evening: Following
She adored and misses them all, says the 88-year-old Day. But her deepest yearning is reserved for her late son Terry Melcher, a record producer whose touch and voice are part of Day's first album in nearly two decades.
"Oh, I wish he could be here and be a part of it. I would just love that. But it didn't work out that way," Day said, her voice subdued. It's a voice rarely heard since she withdrew from Hollywood in the early 1980s to the haven she made for herself in the Northern California town of Carmel, where Clint Eastwood was once mayor.
"My Heart," set for a Dec. 2 U.S. release, has induced Day to edge back to public attention.
The Zombie Census
The modern American zombie first shuffled onto the scene in 1968 in George A. Romero’s landmark horror classic Night of the Living Dead. Over forty years later, the walking dead are everywhere, and we need you to help us keep tabs on this ever-growing pustulent population.
In celebration of the release of the fourth novel from Creeping Hemlock's Print Is Dead line, Martin Mundt’s Reanimated Americans, the award-winning indie publisher announces the "Zombie Census."
Are you a zombieholic? A cadaverific cadet? An undead aficionado? Have you always wanted to see yourself through milky, uncomprehending eyes? Or are you just going as a zombie for Halloween? If you said “Yes” to any of these questions,
According to research by Davis, Calif., pop music authors Marti Smiley Childs and Jeff March, disbanded bandmates of the past have ended up in everything from landscaping to auto repair. Who knows, the mechanic who tunes up your car may have once tuned up before thousands of screaming fans at the Hollywood Bowl or Madison Square Garden.
The authors documented career changes in the lives of dozens of musicians from hit bands of the 1960s for their latest book, "Where Have All the Pop Stars Gone?".
Childs and March found many of these musicians moved on to such widely divergent fields as financial services, manufacturing, agriculture, retail, and yes, construction and health care.

In the past year Lady Gaga has risen from little-known dance act to one of today's major international superstars. But how do you know you've really arrived? It's when you get invited to perform at Sting's annual Rainforest Fund benefit show.
On Thursday night (May 13) Gaga was on-hand for the star-studded show at New York's Carnegie Hall, which also featured performances by Bruce Springsteen, Elton John, host Sting, Mary J. Blige and Blondie's Debbie Harry.
Wearing a frumpy gray old-lady wig, a white mini-hoop skirt and matching leggings that looked like they were made out of Ace bandages, Gaga sat down at the piano for what the New York Daily News described as a "sober

Photo credit: WB Synopsis: “Imagine a serial killer who flatlines his victims and then brings them back to life over and over again, until they beg to die. Beautiful psychic investigator Maya Casteneda (Tessie Santiago) was his last victim and swore vengeance on her tormentor before she escaped. Now The Cusp is back, and the FBI taps Maya to help capture the elusive monster.
The significance of Woodstock is hard to overplay; in an age of public turmoil, when rifts existed between countless subsets of American culture, Woodstock set everything aside for three days political expression through music. Some artists delivered mini-sermons before playing their set while others let their instruments do all the talking. There are those who insist Jimi Hendrix’s rendition of the “Star-Spangled Banner” used guitar distortion to
