Sliff 2015 Interview: Tony West – Director of The Safe Side Of The Fence

The Safe Side Of The Fence screens Wednesday, November 11th at 7pm at St. Louis University’s Center for Global Citizenship (3672 West Pine Mall St. Louis, Mo 63108) as part of this year’s St. Louis International Film Festival. Director Tony West will be in attendance. Admission is free.

World War II’s Manhattan Project required the refinement of massive amounts of uranium, and St. Louis-based Mallinckrodt took on the job. As a result, the chemical company’s employees would become some of the most contaminated nuclear workers in history. Tony West’s new documentary The Safe Side Of The Fence both explores that legacy — St. Louis is still coping with the fallout of creating some of the world’s first nuclear waste — and tells the story of nuclear workers both past and present.

Watch: Bush And Clinton Say The Strangest Things...

  • Aol TV.
The Bad Lip Reading team have been poking fun at folk for a good long while now, be it politicians or pop stars, but it's an exceptional bit of mickey-taking to see not one but two former Presidents Of The United States skewered so soundly.

And when we use the word 'soundly', we mean it - after all, these are the guys who spend their days watching clips and working out how to change what the video's stars are saying.

That's how you're going to end up seeing George W. Bush say "I tooted" and Bill Clinton noting that "You're fired - and the knives will be safe."

It's all in a day's work for the Bad Lip Reading boys - and to celebrate their genius, here's some of our favourite Blr videos for you below.

Red Hot Chili Peppers' Chad Smith Joins The List Of Best Children's Albums

Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith has made a career out of combining funk, hard rock and jazz styles to support his primary band's stew of eclectic arena rock. Though Rhcp has been his main gig for two decades, he has ventured outside the family for a handful of projects (including the hard rock supergroup Chickenfoot and his own band Chad Smith's Bombastic Meatbats). His latest foray into non-rhcp-related territory is Rhythm Train, a narrative album of music for kids he cut with singer Leslie Bixler and Dick Van Dyke (who apparently raps).

It's actually not all that shocking for Smith, as he and his two main Red Hot Chili Peppers compatriots (Anthony Kiedis and Flea) all have kids of their own. Even though he has performed songs about doing heroin under bridges and engaging in freaky sex with nymphomaniacs, Smith's foray into music for children is the

Musical MySpace Tour #8

  • Quick Stop
I’m not going to mess around this week. I have no soapbox to stand on or issue I feel the need to rant about. Instead, I’m just going to nonchalantly dismiss some musicians in a self serving manner. Who needs therapy when you have a column on Fred?

Once again, all bands reviewed are done so solely on the basis that they tried to add me as a friend on MySpace.

The fools.

The Mexican Time Machine look like 3 homeless dudes. There is a possibility that they really are 3 homeless dudes and this is some sort of community outreach program: getting hobos to play music in order to relieve their smelly blues. The thing is, they’re the best homeless guy band I’ve ever heard. I just wish they’d wash.

I honestly don’t know what I expected to hear when I clicked play.
