I took Mom and her other half out for dinner last night. Chef Paul made her a special dessert and she got kisses from the waiters. I told her that her gift would be to take her and her other half to NY for the JEWS AND BASEBALL theatrical premiere, Nov. 4 (I think!). I hope some HHWers will be able to come and meet her since she's heard so much about the group (she's also a big fan of Guy Haines!)

She wants to go the the Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, we'll probably catch a show or two, and of course the film. Any other things anyone thinks an 80 year old lady would like, I'm open for suggestions!

BK, since a few others are asking about soundtracks today, how about a release of William Bolcom's score for "Illuminata"? I remember seeing the movie and loving the music from it.

What studio made the film?
According to IMDB, it was a company called CDI. Don't know much of anything about it. John Turturro directed. The cast had Susan Sarandon and Christopher Walken in it.

Thank you. Not quite sure how it went. But we'll see in a few days if there's another round of interviews.

There was a soundtrack recording. I have it. Bill Bolcom and Joan Morris are friends. I was invited to the recording sessions at the Edison Hotel recording studio. The score is great,

Another website says it's on Artisan. But I don't know if that's the DVD.

T.O.D.


ASK BK DAY



Will we ever get to buy the DVD with Kevin Spirtas and Sean McDermott?

Sadly, I don't think so.  What we're investing is releasing the audio on CD.

Sorry I left so abruptly earlier.  DS Rob was available to install my new printer, so I logged out of everything and let him work in peace.  I'm back in business and can now scan!

The police and an A.D.A. came to re-interview us (and the kids) about the murder of the Public Defender in the old neighborhood.

We in the County of Alameda have been briefed on how the County will respond to the verdict in the Johannes Mehserle trial going on in LA.  This trial is about the shooting in Oakland of a young black man named Oscar Grant by white BART Policeman Mehserle on New Year's Day 2009.  Grant was one of several young men who were, allegedly, causing trouble and harrassing passengers on BART (the Bay Area Rapid Transit system).  BART police interecepted the train at the Fruitvale Station and got the young men off.  They struggled with them and handcuffed them.  Grant was put on the pavement, face down, and officers attempted to cuff him.  Not sure of all the details, but he allegedly wrested one arm free and brought it under his body.  Mehserle, one of the officers handling Grant, pulled his gun and shot him.  Grant died shortly thereafter.  Many passengers waiting on trains took video with their cell phones.   The video shows a routine takedown and officers trying to get the man's hands together.  When Grant wrested his arm away, Mehserle drew his weapon and fired into Grant's back.  Coroner says nothing could have saved Grant afterward.

Prosecution (and much of the Oakland community) thinks Mehserle should be convicted of 1st degree murder.  Even before Grand Jury hearings had been completed last year, crowds thronged in the streets of Oakland on several occasions, and always erupted into violence/destruction when a "few" got ugly.

Oakland and surrounding communities, including San Francisco across the Bay, are preparing to exercise "mob control" in the event that some riot or other breaks out on the day the verdict is handed down.  It should go to the jury tomorrow.  The judge ruled today that insufficient evidence/cause existed to convict him of 1st degree murder.  He ruled they can convict of 2nd degree murder.  Prosecution doesn't want an option for manslaughter, voluntary or involuntary. 

I think that's a mistake.  I don't believe they're going to convict on 2nd degree murder if that's the only charge possible.  I think it's obvious this was a tragic, horrible mistake on the part of the officer.  He has no history of racial prejudice/action, and no video shows him doing anything out of order other than drawing his weapon and firing.  He testified he thought he was drawing his laser as he wanted to stun the guy to keep him from resisting. 

Regardless of the jury's decision, we think ugly things are going to happen in key hotspots here.

We will be "getting out of Dodge" on the day the verdict is reached, so to speak.  The Courts have agreed to notify State/County/City governments two hours before the verdict is read.  We will be told to go home and hunker down.

Sounds like this could be another Rodney King situation.

I really love those "What if..." numbers you have posted up on YouTube.

Any chance of doing a CD of those?

A friend of mine edited that and he was the one who make the connection for us to ask John Turturro to do the voice of Vanzetti for our film. I loved Illuminata, especially since it features Bill Irwin!

I don't know if she's up for standing and listening but we think the

Tenement Museum

on the Lower East Side is a wonderful place to visit



and the Museum of Sex!

I'm happy. My invoice payment has arrived. I'm going in for dental torture tomorrow!

I htink she would prefer the Museum of Sex to the Tenement Museum. I love the Tenement Museum but it's not her speed...she likes glitz!

I've always wanted to see that studio. I tried to sneak up there one time when I was staying there but got busted. One day...
