Festivals of the World: Essence of Hanukkah
Huffington Post - about 3 years
Happy Hanukkah! "Festivals of the World" is an educational series by Mike Ghouse developed in 1993. When we live as neighbors and in the same communities, we might as well learn about each other. The best way to build cohesive societies is for members to participate in festivities as well as commemorations of each other, or at least understand each other's joys and sorrows. Please note, the simplicity in writing is designed for people of other faiths to learn and to know, so we can function cohesively. The Festival of Hanukkah is a Jewish celebration, and it is about celebrating the recovery and re-dedication of the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem in 165 B.C. Hanukkah is spelled in many different ways in case you want to Google it; Hanukah, Chanukah, Chanuka, Hanukka and other variations. Hanukkah is celebrated for eight days and nights. It is also called the festival of lights. It starts on the 25th of the Jewish month of Kislev each year, and the actual date differs every year d ...

Lorraine Devon Wilke: The Other Lincoln Movie: Indie Feature Saving Lincoln Premieres on Lincoln's Birthday
Huffington Post - about 4 years
As we approach the Oscars with their coveted acknowledgement of the best in film, all bets are on Daniel Day-Lewis and Steven Spielberg's Lincoln to win the lion's share of top prizes. But as that big budget feature makes the rounds as top contender with both audiences and critics, another film based on our 16th president, Saving Lincoln, has been nurtured into life by a team of filmmakers who approached it with a unique vision and a desire to create a kind of film no one had ever seen before. It is now set to premiere in Los Angeles on February 12th... yes, the day of Lincoln's birthday. As a film lover and observer of many an artistic process, I found the technical and creative mission statement of this independent feature particularly intriguing. Given that my brother, Tom Amandes, was ultimately cast in the lead role, I was able to get just a bit of an inside look at the "little Lincoln" that was coming together simultaneous to the "big" one. The angle here isn't ...

Obama vs. Romney: Who won?
Politico - over 4 years
Erika Lovley: President Barack Obama and Gov. Mitt Romney debated for over an hour Wednesday night, covering a variety of economic and domestic policy issues. Who won this debate? What went well and what didn't? Michael S. Steele: Romney spanked Obama stylistically, substantively, publicly and consistently. This debate was not about zingers but rather about how Romney owned the stage with a presidential demeanor and the president, well, was he there? Moreover, Romney set the debate on his terms from the outset, even educating Obama on the concept of "trickle down government" - and the president seemed helpless to stop the ensuing carnage. It was a full-throated indictment of the the president's policies and his leadership. And if the howling by the left is any indication, I'd say Romney had a damn good night. Former N.J. Gov. Christine Todd Whitman: This was a big win for Gov. Romney. He was in command of the facts and showed a confidence that has been lacking in the past. He wa ...

Rabbi Arthur Waskow: Occupy Rosh Hashanah: Praying With Our Legs, Part 1 -- Big Banks
Huffington Post - over 4 years
On the first day of Rosh Hashanah, last week, I was picketing a bank in Berkeley, Calif.; "praying with my legs" in a way that reminded me of one modern prophet and one ancient prophet. The modern one, of course, was Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel, who coined that phrase about his own legs after marching alongside Dr. Martin Luther King in Selma, Ala., in 1965 to win the vote for African-Americans. The ancient prophet was Isaiah. On Yom Kippur about 2,500 years ago, Isaiah walked into a crowd that felt good because (having fasted for about 18 hours already) it felt bad. He called out that merely refraining from food and drink was not the point. God, he said, intended the Yom Kippur fast to involve feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, housing the homeless, and -- intensely political, not reducible to "charity" -- striking off the handcuffs put on prisoners by those in power. Many in the crowd around Isaiah got angry at this shattering of their internal "spiritual" hig ...

PDXOXO: ANYA MARINA, EMMETT MONTGOMERY, MICHAEL LERNER (Doug Fir, 830 E Burnside) Musician Anya Marina wants to share her illicit love affair with Portland at her new variety show, PDXOXO, where she'll host a night of music, comedy, and film. Kooky Seattle comedian Emmett Montgomery lays down the laughs, while Michael Lerner of Telekinesis plays, and Spencer Gentz shows off his adorable roller-skating video of Marina's song "Notice Me." COURTNEY FERGUSON FELLWOODS, R.I.P., BROXA (East End, 203 SE Grand) Read our article on Fellwoods. TY SEGALL AND WHITE FENCE, NUCULAR AMINALS, YOUTHBITCH (Star Theater, 13 NW 6th) Ty Segall's been heralded by critics as the "next Jay Reatard" too many times to count, but the similarities are, for the most part, superficial. There's something distinctly Californian about Segall's songs and indolent style of singing, and his latest LP, last year's Goodbye Bread, displays more solo Lennon than Oblivians influence (chances are Segall wo ...

The Antlers - Live At Shepherd's Bush Empire, London
Clash - almost 5 years
In 2009 Brooklyn-based indie band The Antlers self-released ‘Hospice’: a drastic departure from frontman Peter Silberman’s earlier albums under the same moniker. Critical acclaim soon followed with strong sales and stronger support from indie-kid bible Pitchfork Media, that saw The Antlers’ magnum opus usurp the title of Bon Iver’s ‘For Emma, Forever Ago’ as the most heart wrenching beardy bedroom album of the decade. A deal with fellow New Yorkers Frenchkiss Records (new home of Bloc Party) and their second album as a trio, ‘Burst Apart’, led to ever increasing crowds culminating in their biggest UK headline show to date at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire. Expectations and buzz were high, and fans waited for the doors to open with baited breath. Still riding the increasingly long modern promotional rollercoaster, The Antlers presented a set relying heavily on their latest offering ‘Burst Apart’. Opener, ‘No Windows’ showed a lack of presence and intent, in a move that ...

Win Tickets to Anya Marina's PDXOXO!
The Portland Mercury - almost 5 years
photo by Parker Fitzgerald [UPDATE: This contest is closed and the winner has been notified.] Anya Marina's PDXOXO variety show comes to the Doug Fir on Thursday, May 3—and it'll be a night of two great tastes that taste great together: music and comedy (not to be confused with musical comedy, which nobody wants). Seriously, though, Marina has put together a really cool and unique bill, drawing from her days as a radio DJ for mad show-hosting skills. There'll be music from both Marina and Michael Lerner of Telekinesis; plus stand-up comedy from the funny, weird Emmett Montgomery; and video director Spencer Gentz will also be a guest. It'll be great, and different from the typical rock show, and best of all, we're giving away a pair of tickets to one lucky winner. Want to win? Of course you do. Send an email to this address with "PDXOXO" in the subject line. Please include your first and last name in the email. We'll select a winner at random, who will get two tickets to che ...

Anya Marina's Video for "Notice Me" and Her Upcoming Variety Show
The Portland Mercury - almost 5 years
Portland singer/songwriter Anya Marina has a new video for "Notice Me" from her album Felony Flats, and she answered some quick questions about the making of the video for us. Starring Meredith Adelaide and Noel Taylor, "Notice Me" was directed by Spencer Gentz and was shot here in town, at both the Mt. Scott Community Center and at the Oaks Park roller rink.( Justin Koleszar also appears as—in the director's words—the "d-bag boyfriend"; Koleszar's a director in his own right, responsible for last year's excellent One Foot in the Gutter. And Taylor's a director, too—he did, among other things, the Duover video for "Under Mistletoe.) Since the release of Felony Flats last month, Marina has been busy putting together a variety show, which will happen at the Doug Fir on Thursday, May 3; it's called PDXOXO and it's something she's been planning awhile, with music, comedy, and other stuff. The hope is for the variety show to become an ongoing series, possibly even a podcast at some poi ...
