Mike Ragogna: Dark: A Conversation with Martyn Ware, Plus James The Giant's "Two Weeks On The Ocean" Exclusive and Capricorn Studios in Peril
Huffington Post - over 3 years
JAMES THE GIANT'S "TWO WEEKS ON THE OCEAN" Photo Credit: Larkin Small According to James The Giant, "The song, 'Two Weeks on the Ocean,' was written two weeks after my brother, Julian Brennan, was killed in action in Afghanistan. The video started out as my father's project. A few months ago, he told me that he wanted to put together clips that he had of Julian and put them to 'Two Weeks on the Ocean.' When I decided to release the song, I asked him if he would be willing to work on the video. He compiled all the footage and photos and created the first edit of the video. I enlisted the help of photo/videographer Max Silverman to get the shots of me performing on Bernal Hill. Then together with a talented young editor name Julius Doogan from Brooklyn, the two videos were merged to create what you see here. "Max shot the footage low contrast with the intent that it could be brightened up in post production. However, when I started to work on the cut, I decided the mu ...

Michael Giltz: DVDs: Woody, Spike and Wim Wenders Keep 'Em Coming

The first DVD column of 2013 includes a number of releases by major directors who are easy to take for granted. But it's never easy to make a movie, much less one not geared toward the masses.

END OF WATCH ($34.98 BluRay combo; Universal) RED HOOK SUMMER ($29.97 BluRay; Image) TO ROME WITH LOVE ($35.99 BluRay; Sony) HANNAH AND HER SISTERS ($24.99 BluRay; MGM) SLEEPER ($24.99 BluRay; MGM) HARA-KIRI ($29.95 BluRay; NewVideo) 17 GIRLS ($27.99 DVD; Strand) BREATHING ($29.95 DVD; Kino Lorber) -- Jake Gyllenhaal has his best role in years in this violent cop drama that came and went without leaving much of an impression on anyone.

Ameren supports effort that could lead to new nuclear generation in Missouri
St. Louis Beacon - almost 5 years
Ameren Missouri and other publicly owned utilities in the state have agreed to support Westinghouse Electric Co. in its attempt to secure federal funds for nuclear technology that could result in new construction at the utility’s power plant in mid-Missouri. Westinghouse is applying to the Department of Energy for up to $452 million to invest in small modular reactors, or SMRs. A final decision on who will get money from the investment fund, which was announced last month, is expected this summer. In announcing support for the application, Ameren said the funding could “support first-of-its kind engineering, design certifications and operating licenses for up to two SMR designs over five years.” If Westinghouse gets the federal money, according to a statement from Gov. Jay Nixon’s office, it would work with Ameren to seek licenses needed from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to build SMR technology “to help meet our entire state’s energy needs and transform Missouri into ...

Reporters solve cold-case race killing in fact-based ‘Deadline’
NewsOK.com Blogs - almost 5 years
Steve Talley and Eric Roberts BY GENE TRIPLETT Newspaper movies were almost a genre unto themselves once upon a time, like Westerns, romances, sci-fi epics and cop thrillers. Intrepid reporters — self-described “ink-stained wretches” — were the heroes (or villains) of such classics as “His Girl Friday,” “The Harder They Fall,” “All the President’s Men” and, as recently as 2007, the excellent “Zodiac.” Journalists were depicted as valiant (if sometimes boozy and unkempt) keepers of the First Amendment flame, public watchdogs sounding the alarm against crime and corruption, bloodhounds of truth sniffing out and exposing all manner of social menace and moral decay. But in this Internet age of instant information, such films are now as few and far between as newspapers themselves are rapidly becoming. This makes something of a rare treat out of “Deadline,” a suspenseful, fact-based drama about two investigative warriors of the daily print medium — played by Steve Talley and A ...

  • FORTIES
  • 1995
    Age 46
    She has appeared in TV movies and has made numerous guest appearances on TV. She dialed down her professional pursuits when her son, Charles Taylor Jackson, was adopted in 1995.
    More Details Hide Details She stated at the time, "I don't see how I can go about a directing career and be a good mom at the same time. And if I'm not a good mom, I don't think it matters much what else I do well."
    Jackson starred in several TV movies over the next several years, while working for breast cancer awareness. In 1995, on the heels of a night filming schedule on location, she checked herself into an Alabama hospital for tests due to a feeling of malaise and an inability to sleep.
    More Details Hide Details After several tests, Dr. Gerald Pohost, now head of cardiology at U.S.C., diagnosed that Jackson had been born with an atrial septal defect, a tiny hole in her heart which had previously gone undetected despite Jackson's active lifestyle. She underwent open heart surgery to correct the defect, although as cardiologist Dr. P. K. Shah related in a February 3, 2006, appearance with Jackson on Larry King Live, the current treatment no longer involves surgery.
  • 1991
    Age 42
    Her third marriage was to stuntman Tom Hart in 1991, but they also divorced two years later.
    More Details Hide Details In 1995, Jackson adopted a son, Charles Taylor Jackson.
  • 1989
    Age 40
    In 1989, she starred in the film Loverboy playing Patrick Dempsey's mother.
    More Details Hide Details She had taken the job in order to work with the director, Joan Micklin Silver, having admired the work Silver had done on the film Hester Street. In September 1989, another mammogram indicated residual breast cancer which the previous operation had missed. This time the course of action was a partial mastectomy and reconstructive surgery. “The range of emotions you go through is amazing”, she says. “But I made a conscious decision to be positive.” Jaclyn Smith cancelled a trip to New York City, meeting Jackson at her doctor’s office before she checked into the hospital. “I’d been crying before I got there,” says Smith. “Then I saw Kate, and she had a smile on her face. She said, 'We've gotten through other things, like divorces, and we'll get through this.' And we did.” When Jackson awoke after surgery, “The first thing I heard was good news. My lymph nodes were clean.” Back at home she read medical journals, switched to a macrobiotic diet and came to terms with her reconstructive surgery. “I'm never going to have the perfect body”, she says. “I'm not into facelifts and lip poufs. But I can wear a strapless evening gown, a bustier or whatever is required for a part.”
  • THIRTIES
  • 1988
    Age 39
    Receiving a "clean bill of health", Jackson followed up the cancelled Scarecrow and Mrs. King by taking on the main role in Baby Boom, a 1988 TV sitcom version of the original movie starring Diane Keaton, but it lasted only one season.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1987
    Age 38
    During filming of the show's fourth season, in January 1987, Jackson elected to receive a mammogram for the first time, a test which led to the diagnosis of a small malignant tumor.
    More Details Hide Details This time, her series' producer—the only person she told about the diagnosis—worked with her to reschedule her work on the show. Checking into a hospital under an alias, her course of action was to undergo a lumpectomy. Jackson returned to the series a week later, working with the aid of painkillers through five weeks of radiation treatments.
  • 1983
    Age 34
    In 1983, Jackson accepted the starring role in Scarecrow and Mrs. King, a one-hour action drama in which she played housewife Amanda King opposite Bruce Boxleitner's spy, code-named "Scarecrow".
    More Details Hide Details Jackson also co-produced the series with Warner Brothers Television through her production company, Shoot the Moon Enterprises. It was during this series that she developed a keen interest in directing. When asked on the set one afternoon "What do you do tomorrow?", Jackson replied, "I don't work, I just direct." Scarecrow and Mrs. King was on the air from 1983–1987.
  • 1982
    Age 33

  • 1976
    Age 27
    The shows aired as a movie of the week on March 21, 1976 before debuting as a series on September 22, 1976.
    More Details Hide Details At the beginning of the third season of Charlie's Angels, Jackson was offered the Meryl Streep role in the feature film Kramer vs Kramer (1979), but was forced to turn it down because Spelling told her that they were unable to rearrange the hit show's shooting schedule to give her time off to do the film. At the end of the third season, Jackson left the show saying, "I served it well and it served me well, now it's time to go." She was replaced by Shelley Hack. Jackson starred opposite her Rookies co-star, Michael Ontkean, and Harry Hamlin in the feature film Making Love (1982), directed by Arthur Hiller. It was a movie some considered to be ahead of its time, and attempted to deal sensitively with the topic of homosexuality. However, it received tepid reviews and did poorly at the box office.
  • 1975
    Age 26
    In 1975, Jackson met with Rookies producers Aaron Spelling and Leonard Goldberg to discuss her contractual obligation to star in another television series for Spelling/Goldberg Productions upon that show's cancellation.
    More Details Hide Details Goldberg told her of a series that was available—because "every network has passed on it", The Alley Cats. Spelling said that when he told Jackson the title of the series had to be changed and asked her what she would like to call it, she replied, Charlie's Angels, pointing to a picture of three female angels on the wall behind Spelling. Jackson was originally cast as Kelly Garrett (which ultimately went to her co-star Jaclyn Smith), but decided upon Sabrina Duncan instead. The huge success of the show saw Jackson, Smith and Farrah Fawcett-Majors (who played Jill Munroe) appear on the front cover of Time magazine.
    She also appeared in an all-star ensemble cast in Death Scream, a 1975 television dramatization of the circumstances surrounding a real-life 1964 murder as reported in a sensational article in The New York Times.
    More Details Hide Details Jackson hosted the thirteenth episode of season four of Saturday Night Live which aired in February 1979. During her monologue, she referred to being an NBC page ten years earlier where she did tours of the studio.
  • 1973
    Age 24
    She has continued to star in numerous TV movies, including Quiet Killer (1992), Empty Cradle (1993) and Satan's School for Girls (2000), a remake of the 1973 TV movie of the same name in which she also starred.
    More Details Hide Details Jackson was born in Birmingham, Alabama, the daughter of Ruth (née Shepherd) and Hogan Jackson, a business executive. She attended The Brooke Hill School for Girls while residing in Mountain Brook and then went on to the University of Mississippi, where she was a member of the Delta Rho chapter of the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority, but during her sophomore year at the University of Mississippi, she moved to New York City to study acting at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. Jackson worked as an NBC page at the network's Rockefeller Center studios and did summer stock at the Stowe Playhouse in Stowe, Vermont before landing a role as the mysterious, silent ghost Daphne Harridge on the 1960s supernatural daytime quasi-soap opera Dark Shadows.
  • 1972
    Age 23
    Jackson's performance was well received in the 1972 independent film Limbo, one of the first theatrical films to address the Vietnam War and the wives of soldiers who were POWs, MIA or killed in action (KIA).
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1971
    Age 22
    In 1971, Jackson had a starring role as Tracy Collins in Night of Dark Shadows, the second feature film based on the daytime serial.
    More Details Hide Details She was joined by her Dark Shadows castmates Lara Parker, David Selby, Grayson Hall, Nancy Barrett, John Karlen, and Thayer David. This movie was more loosely based on the series than House of Dark Shadows was, and it did not fare as well at the box office as the first film did. The same year, she worked with James Stewart in two episodes of the short-lived sitcom, The Jimmy Stewart Show. She then appeared as nurse Jill Danko, wife of a character played by Sam Melville, for four seasons on the 1970s crime drama The Rookies. A supporting cast member, Jackson filled her free time by studying directing and editing. She also appeared in several TV films during this period.
