Re: “Beware of Mr. Baker

I can't tell you how fascinating this was. This is a must see for all Cream fans and if you have read the biographies of Ginger, Eric, and Jack.

Re: “Queen of the Lot

Queen of the Lot is set in modern-day Hollywood and stars Tanna Frederick, Noah Wyle and Christopher Rydell. In this sequel to Hollywood Dreams, Margie Chizek has achieved B movie success with her action hero films under her new name, Maggie Chase. But she's also gotten into trouble having had a few DUIs and now she's under house arrest - ankle bracelet and all. She's driven in her quest for A-list fame as evidenced by her obsession with her Google points. She's got more points than her home state of Iowa but far less than Angelina Jolie and that's got to change. She has to be Queen of the Lot - just like Norma Shearer. 
 
Zack Norman and David Proval reprise their Hollywood Dreams roles as Kaz and Caesar, the hotshot gay Hollywood producers who discovered Maggie. They are still "married" (to each other) and funnier than ever. Maggie asks them if she can stay at their mansion for a while because she can't stand being stuck in her apartment on house arrest with the press dogging her. They agree and she gets police permission to stay with them.
 
Maggie asks Kaz and Caesar if her boyfriend (an already established star) Dov Lambert (Christopher Rydell), can stay, too. Dov is a half-wit who hails from Hollywood royalty. Enter Aaron Lambert (Noah Wyle), Dov's brother, a failed writer and black sheep of the family, who is sent to fetch Dov to help with a family crisis.   
 
Is there really such a thing as a functional family? I don't think I've ever met one. Dov takes Maggie home to meet the family, headed by charismatic patriarch Louis Lambert (played with great depth by Jack Heller). At dinner, Dov introduces Maggie to everyone, including his sort-of estranged wife (Daisy White). What happens at large dysfunctional family dinners (as in Jaglom's Last Summer in the Hamptons)? Fur flies between various factions and, of course, Margie is right in there trying to fit in and help out and maybe make a connection that will propel her to megastardom. Aaron is in the fray maintaining his role as the family scapegoat and helping Maggie feel comfortable amidst the family bickering while Dov plays with his wife and other more important things - like his poker buddies. Maggie and Aaron reluctantly fall for each other and the way their relationship develops is one of the most irresistible aspects of the film.  
 
Frederick and Wyle together make the silver screen simmer with vintage Tinseltown charm reminiscent of Tracy and Hepburn. Frederick plays Maggie Chase as down-to-earth, believable and loveable. Maggie is driven, insecure, and slightly conniving but she's also smart, forceful and can take care of business. This is Frederick’s best performance as she infuses Maggie with her uncanny combination of star and girl-next-door. Wyle is at the top of his game as Aaron, an insecure good guy whose wife has just left him. He's a wreck but his inner strength comes through in emergencies.
 
As often occurs in Jaglom films, his brother Michael Emil appears, this time as a curmudgeonly interloper in a therapy group. Jaglom's daughter Sabrina is absolutely stunning. Remember her as Zoe Lambert, the young filmmaker in Hollywood Dreams who rejects Margie Chizek? Well, Zoe's turned into quite a formidable, sometimes calculating young woman. Simon Orson Jaglom, is just adorable as Michael Lambert. Love him!
 
There is an outstanding supporting cast including great performances by Kelly DeSarla, Ron Vignone and Diane Salinger as Maggie's "handlers." Salinger is frighteningly believable as Maggie's "life coach." Mary Crosby, Peter Bogdanovich, Dennis Christopher, Paul Sand and Beege Barkette shine as various family members and associates. Tommy Garrett is delightful as a reporter who empathizes with Maggie's quest for fame and the fact that she only gets attention from the press when she’s been bad.  
 
You’ve got to see this movie. There are some very funny lines and Queen of the Lot has heart and soul. When I saw Jaglom’s Hollywood Dreams I thought, "This is the REAL Hollywood." Queen of the Lot has reinforced that. I'd like to poll some Hollywood types to see if they agree. In any event, I am confident that Tanna Frederick is going to achieve her dreams in Hollywood and if there were still a lot, she would be queen of it!

Re: “2016: Obama's America

Democrats will not be offended by this film. It should have been made before the 2008 election. This is a movie with a point of view, but it is not propaganda (like, say, a Michael Moore film). Leaving aside a few minutes overtly political and right leaning, the film is largely a poignant story and search for the connection between a man, his father and ancestors and the possible impact of history. Many interesting facts about Obama's family and connections to colonial history. Photography and editing, music, all very engaging.

I was a very productive citizen for a long time. Made a lot of money, paid a lot in taxed. I tryed dope when I was 32 now I'm 34 and have nothing. This drug does not discriminate and I hope it puts its hooks in you (the truth for all) just so you can see we are not disgusting lowlifes, we are people just like you.

Re: “Feds Approve NEXUS Pipeline, Which Will Run Through Northeast Ohio

You can thank Gov. Kasich and the rest of the Republicans in the state who froze all renewable energy proposals. It's just like Ohioans to be OK with pipelines until it comes through their backyard. This is what you get for relying on the Republicans. Businesses over people every chance they get and now that you've elected Donald, you can see how he is stacking the deck with other private billionaires too. Wow, talk about voting against your own best interests...

Re: “City Council Excoriates Jackson Administration for Public Square Debacle

Just listening to Will Burge on WTAM with Zack Reed.

Zack Reed contends that Public Square is now a "playground" and you don't have buses running through "playgrounds". So it sounds like he's siding with Mayor Frank "Adolf" Jackson. But then he counters with statistics regarding RTA ridership, 60% middle aged female. Sounds like he's in disagreement with Mayor Frank "Adolf" Jackson.

There is no middle road here.

Federal funds were provided to Cleveland on the basis of there being a Western hub for the Health Line. Superior was not torn up and grassed over. It was left in place. New bus shelters were placed on Superior in the square. Obviously, this was done to accommodate a federal requirement. Now Mayor Frank "Adolf" Jackson, acting on his own, has decided no bus traffic through the square via Superior. This is the same guy who wants to wiz away $1 million for a dirk bike track for a family member.

Zack Reed says there needs to be dialogue between RTA, the city and federal authorities. Little too late for that Zack. Should have been done way before a shovel was poked into the ground on the project.

Open up Superior to bus traffic as posted by "downtownofficeworker". Close it for special events, which are usually held on weekends. No harm, no foul.

Regarding Mayor Frank "Adolf" Jackson. The voters of Cleveland need to wake up and realize he's a buffoon and needs to be replace. But not by Zack Reed. He'd be just as bad.

If Cleveland wants to truly be "The Best Location in the Nation", leadership needs to be revamped. Cut the mayor's staff in half. Reduce City Council to 5 members. Columbus is twice the size of Cleveland. They have 7 Council members and they run their city so much better than what we have here.

I swore I would never go to Blossom again for rock music...not while they are under the ruling thumb of Live Nation. The fun ends when you leave the parking lot. And when you come out and want to go home, better not have anything planned for the next day, like maybe a job. You'll be in a bottleneck until the wee, small hours.

Fuck it. Pass.
