Quotes

Billy Sunshine: I booked you guys in concert at the Oval Auditorium. It's gonna be a sellout. Simultaniously, video-beam, live over network three, with, with enough watt spillage to, to, to reach over at least more than two other provinces.
Hal Sterling: Trace and Gina just got expelled from school.
Billy Sunshine: I'm stunned. That you would interject such an unimportant piece of information. I mean, what is school compared to millions and millions of funds? School is preparation for live, they're living it now, so who cares?

Still rock and roll to me
8 November 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

I guess the moral of this story is sometimes there are certain inexorable events that just sweep one along. Tides cannot be stopped.

The last thing that the Sterling family wants is attention. But when Tony O'Dell and Jonna Lee start bringing some of the contemporary music from their world into their new surroundings it catches on. Kind of like when Marty McFly played some of his contemporary stuff to those 1955 kids in Back To The Future.

Michael Callan does a nice job as a talent agent who is in love with his new found riches, but has a good heart in the end.

The culture of this province in Otherworld is changed forever.
