Do not see this movie! Review of "Remember Me" opening today (March 12)


Remember Me
Director: Allen Coulter
With: Robert Pattinson, Emilie de Ravin, Chris Cooper, Pierce Brosnan, Tate Ellington, et al.

I can’t stress strongly enough that you do not see this awful movie.  I will gladly spoil the vile ending on this shameless piece of crap.  The writer, Will Fetters, and the director, Allen Coulter, should be ashamed of themselves.  This movie exploits human misery for a cheap soap-opera of a story, including the worst mass murder in US history.

Review of "Green Zone," opening today (March 12)


Green Zone
Director: Paul Greengrass
With: Matt Damon, Greg Kinnear, Brendan Gleeson, Yigal Naor, Khalid Abdalla, Amy Ryan, etc.

A fictional riff on how and why we got into the Iraq war, with the CIA coming off as the good guys, and one dedicated soldier, Miller (Damon), who wants to get to the bottom of the whole mess.

Morgan Brent on the "Sylvapolitan" -- a being in tune with nature

Recovery Zone
program date: 
Thu, 06/01/2006

In June, 2006, Stephanie Potter spoke with Morgan Brent about developing a way of life devoted to the cultivation of our humanness in conscious, respectful, and free flowing dialogue with the natural world. According to Brent, one so integrated into the sylvan cosmos, the society of Nature, is known as a sylvapolitan. Brent teaches that the sylvapolitan is educated via self-transformation (knowing something by becoming it), accultured into a spiritual ecology and its manifestations in natural ecosystems, and pro-active in the Program of spiritual evolution.  Morgan Brent is founder of Tribes of Creation and leads workshops throughout the Northwest.

Un|Herd #13: Deeds and WIMBC

program date: 
Wed, 03/10/2010

Alas we have arrived at Un | Herd Archive Episode number 13. This one includes two performances, the main show being that of an improvisational duet entitled, Deeds. And they are Brian Mumford on electric guitar and Un | Herd veteran, John Niekrasz on drums. The second portion of the show will be a 6 minute clip from one of my earliest programs featuring John again on drums and Seth Brown on Fender Rhodes piano, performing as Why I Must Be Careful. The prior goes back to November 23, 2009, and the latter goes back to November 24, 2008. I believe they were both debut performances; the prior was totally new and improvised; the latter was freshly composed. So please enjoy Deeds and Why I Must Be Careful.

Welcome to episode 11, and the first 30-minute edition of Un-Herd archives. This one goes all the way back to January 26, 2009, featuring the spazz-jazz duet called Thicket. This band features the most frequently appearing guest of Un-Herd, drummer John Niekrasz, of notables such as Naked Future and Why I Must Be Careful. On alto saxophone we have Ben Kates, a long time collaborator with Niekrasz, in bands like Fly Fly Fly Fly Fly, and Naked Future. Ben is missed in the Portland avant-garde scene as of this retrospective while teaching elementary students in Alaska. With that, please enjoy, Thicket.
