Free Ice Cream Cones For All!

By Venditto, published on Apr 28, 2008

...(god bless them) will supply it, and for one day they'll do it for free.

On the negative side it's a spookily similar marketing campaign used by crack dealers. They get you addicted by giving you that first hit for free, then before you know it you're life's become a John Singleton movie. On the positive side: it's free ice cream and that's always a good thing.

Last year I visited every Ben & Jerry's in Manhattan so I could report on it here for my fellow Broohooians. You can check that article out here. You can also click here to find the closest... (more)

88 Minutes

By DLFerguson, published on Apr 21, 2008

When movie fans get together and start discussing the most influential and greatest actors ever, there’s an excellent chance that Al Pacino will be in the top five if not right at the top. And with good reason. If Al Pacino had only performed in “The Godfather Trilogy” his place in movie history would be assured. But he’s assembled a list of classic films that few actors today can match: “Serpico” “…And Justice For All” “Dog Day Afternoon” “Heat” “Scarface” “The Panic In Needle Park”... (more)

The Cards of Life

By 'Mean' Mike Duffau, published on Apr 16, 2008

...really enjoyed hitting the speed bag and still do today. There was also a weight bench and I would lift weights, and I would work up a good sweat. I don't remember how long this training regimen lasted and we've been a fan of boxing ever since I could remember. My brother used to take me to the movies and he told told me that there is this new one about boxing that just came out. For some reason I didn't want to go. I should have gone! The movie that my brother wanted to take me was Raging Bull back in 1980. I didn't get into LaMotta till a few years later. Still, I should have gone with my ... (more)

A Heaping Helping Of Translucent Ham

By Gary Schwind, published on Apr 15, 2008

...it. The Translucent Ham Sandwich is a very intriguing act and one that is sending out a very important message. Stay tuned people…What sort of response do you get from the audience?I think for first-timers, it is a bit of a shock to the system. There is a lot to take in. There is the movie aspect, which is a main focal point in the show. Then there are the entertainers around the room that apply pressure to your ability to maintain steady focus who are doing magic and juggling and roller skating and dancing etc., all while a 9 piece band is playing their hearts out trying to get... (more)

Spring Time In San Francisco: Drums And Slip-N-Slide

By Digidave, published on Apr 14, 2008

As you can see from the video above - the weather in San Francisco this weekend was.... breathetaking. I am not an "active" person, but I couldn't resist the outdoors. On Saturday afternoon, after some spring cleaning, I hoped on my bike and headed to Golden Gate Park. Specifically "hippie hill" which is the open field just beyond the Haight street entrence to the park. It is a haven for gutter punks, burnouts, frisbie throwing hippies, music lovers and people like myself - who just love watching it all go past them.

Later that night I went to Dolores park with some friends. Since the... (more)

Iraq Movies: Why They Fail

By Chris Jones, published on Apr 14, 2008

In his latest column, NY Times Op-ed writer Frank Rich gets it wrong (as usual) when talking about Iraq. This week in particular Frank misses the mark with his explanation of why movies about the Iraq war do so poorly at the Box Office.

He claims Americans want to avoid talking about the war or seeing images of it, because it's all too depressing and horrific to come to terms with.

It would take another column to list all the movies and TV shows about Iraq that have gone belly up at the box office or in Nielsen ratings in the nearly four years since the war’s only breakout commercial... (more)

You Don't Know Bennie?

By 'Mean' Mike Duffau, published on Apr 11, 2008

...fighters. He's just been around the boxing game and he's a personable guy. They don't try to compare myself with him because I'm not that kind of guy anyway.

Have you ever been compared to someone like him before?

I was compared to Angelo Dundee. You know he did that movie with the guy from Australia, Cinderella Man. He was sick at this time and he wanted to know if I'd be interested in taking his place and I said, "Yeah I'd do it, why not." I guess he pulled himself together and he did it.

What are your thoughts and comments about Art Aragon who ... (more)

Funny Games, Painfull Viewing

...remains nearly identical.The only majorchanges coming in the form of a new cast, andrelocating the storyfrom Germany to Southampton, Long Island. The director has mentioned in interviews that heoriginally intended his first film to be set in America, because of the greater inclination of US movies to revel in violence as entertainment.

At the start of the film, "George" (Tim Roth) and "Ann" (Naomi Watts) of the affluent Farber family,drive to their remote palatial vacation home with their young son, "Georgie" (Devon Gearhart). On the way, they playa round of... (more)

Artist Co-op In Sf: It's a "Rare Device"

By Digidave, published on Apr 4, 2008

I was on my way to get an Arizona ice-tea. I particularly like the Arnold Palrmer flavor. When I turned the corner, however, I couldn't help but notice the group of 20 or so women clamoring into the store Rare Device. Really, how could I not follow them into the store?

As the door started swinging shut behind me I got nervous for a minute. Did I just introdue on some all female event? Luckily one last male, presumably also drawn in by the same site, snuck in at the last second, making me feel like less of an intruder.

Then two women in the front began... (more)

Resurrecting The Champ

By 'Mean' Mike Duffau, published on Apr 3, 2008

You may have thought this was a movie review, it's not. I'll leave that to DLFERGUSON. I haven't seen this movie yet, and I will eventually. You'll be surprise to know that I did audition for the part of 'McCracken' and I was beat out by Jesse Lipscombe for the role. Enough about that... This is the story of Adolph Pruitt.

I see Adolph every single day at the gym. To the ordinary man he's just another person sitting next to you on the bus. You may think nothing of it. Let me tell you! This man is a part of boxing history and most people that come to the gym don't even know anything... (more)
