© 2004-2013 Rebecca Bollwitt - Miss604. This week Upintheair Theatre presents Inside the Seed, a re-imagining of the ultimate Greek tragedy, Oedipus Rex. The play, written by Jason Rothery and directed by Richard Wolfe, is set in a giant bio-genetics corporation that aspires to grow the perfect seed — The Golden Seed — to feed the world and end starvation. Patrick Sabongui plays Foster Bryant in Upintheair Theatre’s Inside the Seed. Photo by Nicole Gurney. The play, which has been three years in the making, was suppose to premiere last year at a different, but when The Cultch learned about it, they urged Upintheair to wait a year so that it could be part of their 2013 season. Inside the Seed tackles big ideas and issues relevant to what’s going on today in the world of modern agriculture –especially with a Monsanto Executive recently winning the Nobel Prize of Agriculture and there reports of a genetically modified “Golden Rice” to be approved for human consumption by the World Food Organization. Though these issues are very real and serious, Upintheair’s objective is to present these issues to the audience in a digestible way. “It is a thriller–fast-paced, entertaining, lots of laughs,” said Daniel Martin, producer of Upintheair Theatre. “If you want to tackle serious issues, tackle them by entertaining the audience.” The play includes a full, multi-cultural cast, including: Mia K Ingimundson, Carl Kennedy, Tamara McCarthy, Adele Noronha, Alison Raine, Patrick Sabongui, Dallas Sauer and Tetsuro Shigematsu. Inside the Seed runs until Saturday, October 12, 2013 at the The Cultch (1895 Venables Street, Vancouver).

Northern Ireland’s Two Door Cinema Club make their way to Detroit on Friday night, October 18, to The Crofoot Ballroom with a triple bill featuring buzz bands St. Lucia and Peace. Two Door Cinema Club are currently on the road supporting 2012’s Beacon and 2013’s Changing Of The Seasons EP featuring the single “Changing Of The Seasons” produced by French EDM wonderkid, Madeon. Two Door Cinema Club have been making waves in America and internationally since their 2010 album Tourist History, which featured the Alternative Radio hits “Something Good Can Work”, “I Can Talk”, and “What You Know.” They recently announced that they are in the process or recording their third album, which is slated to be released in 2015.New York up-and-comers, St. Lucia, release their debut album, When The Night, today, October 8, 2013. The synth-pop revivalists have had a banner year, kicking it off with an opening slot on the Ellie Goulding tour, and playing plenty of big festivals such as Lollapalooza, Governors Ball and Boston Calling. When The Night was produced by the band’s own, Jean-Philip Grobler. Spotify recently placed St. Lucia in their “Emerge” competition, highlighting bands on the ascent. “Emerge” alumnae includes Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Lorde, Chvrches, Atlas Genius and Bastille. Their January show in Royal Oak was one of the highlights of the year. I’m expecting some big things from this band in the future.Peace, based out of Birmingham, U.K., will open the show with their brand of indie rock and roll. Their debut US album, In Love, was just released last week and includes the single “Lovesick”. In Love is getting rave reviews from the press, including a 9/10 from NME and 4/5 from The Independent. In Love was produced by Jim Abbiss, who has produced for an impressive list of artists including Artic Monkeys, Sneaker Pimps, Adele, Emeli Sande, The Temper Trap, The Kooks and The Editors. The band finds their influence from the rock music of the 1960’s, 1980’s and 1990’s. For all of you electronic music fans, be sure to check out their spirited cover of Disclosure’s anthem “White Noise.” Two Door Cinema Club wsg St. Lucia and Peace play The Crofoot Ballroom on Friday, October 18 at 7pm, unfortunately tickets are SOLD OUT!www.MOTORCITYBLOG.net - Detroit's Anti-Blog

Well! It sure sounds like the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, who dove under the covers with the right wing decades ago, are flipping Pope Francis the bird. The pope's been pushing for a more inclusive, less political church. One week before House Republicans shut down the government in an effort to force President Obama to enact many of their preferred policies, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops wrote House members requesting that the government be shut down — and potentially that the nation be forced into default — unless religious employers were given a special right to deny birth control coverage to their employees. As Adele Stan reports, a letter signed by Cardinal Sean O’Malley of Boston and Archbishop William Lori of Baltimore told lawmakers that, “[w]e have already urged you to enact the Health Care Conscience Rights Act (H.R. 940/S. 1204). As Congress considers a Continuing Resolution and debt ceiling bill in the days to come, we reaffirm the vital importance of incorporating the policy of this bill into such ‘must-pass’ legislation.” The “Health Care Conscience Rights Act” permits religious employers to exclude any “item or service to which [they have] a moral or religious objection” from the health insurance package offered to employees. Shortly after the Obama Administration announced rules requiring most employers to provide birth control to their employees, the Bishops rebelled, offering an unusually expansive reading of the Constitution and of a federal religious liberty law to claim that these rules are invalid. Their letter demanding a shut down unless they get their way on birth control, however, is a major escalation from their previous position. It is one thing to request a carve out from a law you do not want to follow while the rest of the nation continues its business around you, but it’s another thing altogether to demand that the government shut down because you are unhappy with the current state of the law. In this regard, the Bishops’ tactic is identical to that of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), who insisted on a shut down unless he got his way on health care. Except that, unlike Ted Cruz, the Bishops speak on behalf of a church that claims that government has a responsibility to “protect human life and dignity,care for poor and vulnerable people at home and abroad, and advance the universal common good.” Because of the government shutdown, mothers and young children risk losing their benefits under the Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) nutrition program. Many Head Start programs halted educational services to low-income children. And federal funds are shut off to many domestic violence programs.

First and foremost let me just say that Gino put on an AMAZING show. Overall, I left the venue feeling blown away and with more than a little bit of clothing envy. I want some of those pieces. Want with a capital ‘grabby hands’. Just a quick recap, Gino Velardi put on a show prior to the official beginning of Colorado Fashion Week to help pay for his medical bills. The show was first and foremost a fundraiser, and guests were both offered the chance to enter to win a custom couture gown- I did not receive that magic e-mail, so I’ll be sulking for a few days- and a look at some of his other works in a retrospective-style display. A retrospective look at Velardi’s previous works The doors opened at 6pm at the EXDO Events Center, plenty of time to mingle with everyone as they showed up. Gino himself was busy backstage, and although Marissa and I tried to get a few backstage shots, there was far too much changing and fitting going on to show you anything. Sorry- guys! Guests were treated to a fully-stocked cash bar, along with some wonderful catering provided by Vincenza’s Italian Restaurant & Bakery. For a good two hours, DJ Rockstar Aaron entertained event-goers with a bit of a pop retrospective to tie into Gino’s theme; spinning old tunes from ABBA and the Backstreet Boys progressing up to today’s popular hits from Adele and Lana Del Ray as the night wore on. Although the show was delayed about a half an hour, setting an 8pm runway start rather than a 7:30pm start time, it was worth the almost painful wait. The show featured more than 70 looks, featuring lovely models like the always-fierce Antoinette Rose. Antoinette Rose in Gino Velardi Designs I hope the gallery of photos will speak to the work better than I can There was a lot of beautiful tailored pieces throughout the collection and a wide variety of interesting stylelines. I was most impressed by the variety of the collection and how it still remained totally cohesive and transitioned seamlessly! There were only a few OOPS! moments. The seam on a pantsuit looked split under the arm, and one of the side seams on a skirt also appeared to have torn in the backstage to runway process. Out of respect to the designer, I did not include images of these moments. To see something like this on the runway, you would’ve had to have a detail-oriented eye anyway! Additionally, as is often a problem when working with a great deal of sequined fabrics, there were quite a few loose little threads on a few of the garments. I so badly wanted to run up and snip them! Maybe they’ll enlist my help backstage in the future (wink, wink) to prevent this from happening again. The hair and makeup was beautifully executed by STUDIO A Collective of Stylists team and Andrea Tucker, as well as J Beverly Hills/TEDS HAIR Studio. There were a few blowout hair styles and a handful of finger-waved 1920′s girls that really made the couture collection look high-end chic. Rumor has it, Gino Velardi will be hosting another fashion show sometime this month, so keep up with him on the Gino Velardi Designs Facebook or bookmark the designer’s official webpage for upcoming events and other news. Don’t worry, we at FCF always have our ear to the ground, so we’ll be sure to keep you updated as well. I was very impressed by these designs, and excited for the chance to be at the show with fellow FCF team members Marissa and Maddie! So check out Gino’s website and if you have a chance to attend an event of his in the future, I suggest you make an effort to be there! Myself, Maddie, and Marissa of FCF enjoying the show. Feel free to copy and share any of the photos in the gallery below! Please do not remove credits. Thank you for being a fan of FCF!!!

I don't mean to alarm you, but my Kickstarter has one week left and needs a little bit of help at this point. As an incentive to contribute, I guess I'll post some excerpts from the new book (which you can pre-order there and help with the campaign).I'll post a section in five segments this week. If this doesn't help, I'll start desperately posting naked pictures by the weekend, then on the last day the sex videos will come out, and overall, to be honest, you better contribute now and save us all the embarrassment. Thank you.This is a scene where the main character, Parke (Maine and Sadie's son from Exit Through The Wound) goes off on a rant about people you can find at LA parties.This turns out to be a typical LA party with the exact same people you’d find in a Hollywood mansion on any given Thursday night, simply transported 100 miles southeast. I have lost count of the times in the past year when some ambitious nobody was introduced to me at a social event and launched into a practiced self-promotional tirade within seconds of our initial greeting. It literally goes: ‘Hi my name is Stella Delgado, I’m a singer, eeeef IIIIIIII, shouuld staaay, I would ooohnly be in your waaaaaeeaaaayyyyyy’. It doesn’t matter that I have no power or interest in promoting their showbiz career, all that matters is that I’m one more person that can be exposed to their God-given talent, and this is clearly a game of numbers. There are potential fans everywhere; you just have to find them and assault them into liking you. In ascending order of how disgusting I find them, I would place the main showbiz offenders thus:5) Singers,4) Dancers3) Models2) Writers1) ActorsSingers are tolerable, especially those that can sing. At least it’s a skill that’s objectively identifiable; you either can carry a rune, or you can’t. It’s still very peculiar though when people break into song inches from your face to advertise their talent. And this happens a lot. The most traumatic of these incidents took place at a Christmas party in this house in West Hollywood last December. I was walking around the garden talking to people with Ryan, when we were introduced to this vaguely Hispanic girl who very keenly presented herself as an up-and-coming singer. Ryan made the fatal mistake of asking her in a good-humored manner, ‘Yes, but can you sing though?’, which she took as her cue to move as close to me as she could, stare into my eyes and deliver two full verses and the chorus from Someone Like You by Adele. I didn’t know where to look. I fixed a grin on my lips and just stood there being sung to, attempting to trick my brain into self-imposed sensory deprivation. Cursed by bad timing, when the song finished we were ambushed by the party photographer, who proceeded to take a group shot of me, Ryan, the singer, and her so-called manager, an anemic-looking, albeit exceptionally loud, little English guy with a forced Californian accent. A few days later, when this humiliating picture was uploaded on Facebook and we were all tagged, I clicked through to discover that ‘Vina Moreno’ described herself in the following way on her Facebook fan page (to all of her 67 fans): ‘Free spirit, singer/songwriter, raw vegan, spiritually motivated, holistic healer. Song is my Religion, Love is my Universe’. And that told me everything I needed to know, more so than a live, oversung rendition of an obvious ballad, which had only served to inform me that there are more vowels in the word ‘you’ than I had ever imagined.Tomorrow we'll do Dancers.Kickstarter

Jennifer Garner had celebrity watchers gushing when she splashed across the Web with her kids in Central Park last week. The appearance was not without a sense of irony. Garner, in New York City for a benefit gala for Save the Children, recently aided fellow actress Halle Berry in pushing California’s Senate Bill 606, which seeks to protect the children of celebrities from harassment by paparazzi. The bill, signed into law on September 24 by Governor Jerry Brown, increases the possible punishment for harassing celebrity kids, according to E!Online. It also clarifies the legal definition of harassment in such cases and makes it easier to sue a paparazzo over an incident of harassment. Garner and Berry both testified in August in support of the bill. “I chose a public life,” Garner stated. “My three children are private citizens. I love my kids. They’re beautiful and sweet and innocent, and I don’t want a gang of shouting, arguing, lawbreaking photographers who camp out everywhere we are all day, every day, to continue traumatizing my kids.” Garner told Today correspondent Jenna Bush Hager she and husband Ben Affleck did not expect the bill to pass. The celebrity couple had considered leaving the state if that was the case. “We had looked at all different things, moving out of California, you know all manners of things,” said 41-year-old Garner. Jennifer Garner elaborated on the relationship between stars and paparazzi, adding that consumers believe celebrities to be complicit in having their pictures taken and blasted everywhere, when the reality is that photographers follow their every move and set up shop outside their homes. Garner, whose children take karate, falls victim to having a predictable routine when travelling to and from their classes. Her frustration seemed to have boiled over when she confronted a photographer in September and started taking pictures of her own. “I can’t go to the mailbox without getting my picture taken, so I don’t.” Garner is hardly the first star to have a run in with the paparazzi and won’t be the last. The spats between photographers and celebrities, from Kanye West to Sean Penn and Alec Baldwin, provide intrigue and entertainment almost on par with their professional endeavors. A simple search reveals numerous lists of the top clashes. Berry released a celebratory statement following SB 606 being signed into law, praising Gov. Brown and Sen. Kevin de Leon, sponsor of the bill. She also had some kind words for her fellow celebs and their help in her crusade. “I am forever in awe of the support I got within my community, from the enormously talented musician Adele to fellow actor, Jennifer Garner, who traveled with me to Sacramento to share her children’s stories, experience and her desire to give them a better life.” Jennifer Garner Illustrates Contentious Relationship Between Stars And Paparazzi is a post from: The Inquisitr News
