Dryv into my Heart
By Megan Reneau [ Thu Dec 17 2015 1:52 PM ]
Jack Dishel (former frontman of the band Stipplicon, lead guitar for The Moldy Peaches, tenor guitarist for Little Joy, and frontman/onlyman of Only Son) just started a new YouTube series called :DRYVRS. The first episode features Macaulay Culkin as the adult version of his most well-known role, Kevin McCallister from the Home Alone series. The show follows Dishel as a regular car service passenger and his encounters with unusual drivers.
In this episode titled Just Me In The House By Myself, Culkin plays a married, grown-up version of Kevin McCallister who doesn’t know how to drive. His wife, who is normally a personal driver, did too much coke the previous night so McCallister is forced to cover for her. After arriving at the destination, Dishel and McCallister are robbed at gun-point, which brings back memories of attempted assailants and burglars for McCallister.
The show is comical and modern. Presented on Youtube, it features the entirely current concept of hiring a personal driver for an "Average Joe" with a smartphone and the weirdness that surrounds that situation. The shots change pace quickly when McCallister gets riled up, so it shows what a frenzy he’s in in comparison to Dishel, whose shots reflect him as composed and calm. It’s about 5 minutes long and definitely worth a watch.

By Samantha Anne Carrillo [ Tue Nov 20 2012 1:23 PM ]
Since its controversial release and subsequent rapid removal, No Doubt’s racist comeback video, “Looking Hot,” has engendered both indictments and shrugs. Marisa Demarco explains why perpetuating racist stereotypes and sexually violent themes in a pop music video matters in Plenty of Doubt.

The Elephant in the Room
With a national election looming, 2012 is a major political year. Director/co-producer Kevin J. Williams and his wife/co-producer Tamara are tapping into that zeitgeist with their independent documentary Fear of a Black Republican. The film explores why there are so few black Republicans and features interviews with such luminaries as former chair of the Republican National Committee Michael Steele, scholar Cornel West and commentators Tavis Smiley and Michelle Malkin. The film will screen locally on Saturday, July 7, starting at 7 p.m. at the African American Performing Arts Center (310 San Pedro NE, in Expo New Mexico). The married filmmakers will be on hand for a post-film Q & A. Admission is “pay what you can.”
