LA Declares Nov 10 Morrissey Day Ahead Of Hollywood Bowl Shows

first_img https://twitter.com/slicingeyeballs/status/900134736776937472 Email News Facebook This past September, a bar in L.A.’s predominantly Latino Boyle Heights community also hosted an all-Morrissey karaoke night commemorating the release of the singer’s new album, Low In High School.Given all this hubbub over Morrissey’s Hollywood Bowl appearances, fans will surely be keeping their fingers crossed that the heating system at the venue is in better shape than the one in Paso Robles, Calif., where Morrissey just last weekend cancelled his appearance moments before he was scheduled to take the stage, citing “cold weather” (yes, in California).Here’s hoping this weekend’s projected weather forecast (high 60s) is warm enough.Songwriting Prompts: Help Yourself Write Better And FasterRead more Twitter center_img Hollywood Bowl exit on Los Angeles’ 101 freeway hit with guerrilla Morrissey promotion https://t.co/3aL2ivmDc2 (h/t @derekpaulscott) pic.twitter.com/Zcr1dzWe2N— Slicing Up Eyeballs (@slicingeyeballs) August 22, 2017 City to honor “the man who put the ‘M’ in Moz Angeles”Brian HaackGRAMMYs Nov 9, 2017 – 12:46 pm Apparently, some of the folks involved in Los Angeles municipal government are big-time Morrissey fans.The brooding, at times cantankerous, alt-pop singer/songwriter has a pair of highly anticipated sold-out shows scheduled for Nov. 10–11 with special guest Billy Idol at L.A.’s historic Hollywood Bowl.In honor of the former Smiths frontman’s upcoming shows, L.A.’s City Council has declared Nov. 10 “Morrissey Day” in the City of Angels.City councilwoman Monica Rodriguez commented, “Morrissey Day honors the man who put the ‘M’ in Moz Angeles [sic], an icon whose music continues to touch and uplift countless people across the globe.”L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti joined Rodriguez in praising the announcement, saying, “Morrissey Day celebrates an artist whose music has captivated and inspired generations of people who may not always fit in — because they were born to stand out.”The mayor and city council aren’t the only one getting wrapped up in Moz mania — the day after Morrissey’s Hollywood Bowl dates were announced this past summer someone snuck out onto an overpass above U.S. Highway 101 and slapped a giant Morrisey sign reading above the exit ramp for the Bowl.

Gurman went on to say the problem may have been caused in part by removing a layer of film. “The phone comes with this protective layer/film. Samsung says you are not supposed to remove it,” he tweeted.  “I removed it, not knowing you’re not supposed to (consumers won’t know either).

Jolie hints at move into politics

first_imgAngelina Jolie arrives at the British Academy of Film and Television Awards (BAFTA) at the Royal Albert Hall in London, Britain, 18 February, 2018. Photo: ReutersAngelina Jolie hinted on Friday she could one day enter politics, as she urged global leaders to do more to help refugees and women in conflict.Asked whether she was moving towards a political career, the Hollywood star, an envoy for the U.N. refugee agency who has also campaigned on sexual violence against women, said she would “go where I’m needed”.”If you asked me 20 years ago, I would’ve laughed,” she said in an interview with British broadcaster the BBC. “I don’t know if I’m fit for politics, but then I’ve also joked that I don’t know if I have a skeleton left in my closet.”Jolie said her work with the United Nations and other organisations enabled her to “get a lot done without a title”, but did not rule out a future switch.”I honestly will do whatever I think can really make change and right now, I am able to work with a U.N. agency … to do a lot of work directly with the people in need,” she said.”I’m also able to work with governments and I’m also able to work with militaries. And so I sit in a very interesting place of being able to get a lot done without a title and without it being about myself or my policies. So for now I’ll sit quiet.”The Oscar-winning actor has in recent years visited refugee camps to highlight the plight of those uprooted by war, and broadened her international efforts to protect women, working with NATO and governments to help stop the use of rape as a weapon of war.With 68.5 million people uprooted globally, she said more needed to be done to support refugees and host communities in developing countries.”The focus should be what is happening to these people? Why is this happening? How do we have this many people uprooted and what are the causes?” Jolie said.U.N. members earlier this month adopted a deal aimed at improving the way world copes with rising migration.The non-binding pact, meant to foster cooperation on migration, was agreed in July by all 193 U.N. members except the United States, but only 164 formally signed it at the meeting.”This should not be seen as a headache for people. This is how we need our leaders to be thinking about balancing our world,” she added.VOICE FOR WOMENJolie, a mother of six who last year released her film “First They Killed My Father” about Cambodia’s Khmer Rouge regime, launched the Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative in 2012 with Britain’s former foreign minister William Hague.NATO agreed in January to help report on sexual violence in war to help bring perpetrators to justice and challenge the idea that rape is an unavoidable aspect of conflict.But there have been questions over the effectiveness of the initiative, especially in light of the mass rape of Rohingya women in Myanmar during a crackdown that forced 720,000 refugees to flee to Bangladesh.Interviewed on BBC Radio’s Today programme, which she guest edited, Jolie said the campaign had made a difference.”I have met victims who finally got reparations when they didn’t have them before,” she said. “When there are prosecutions and when there is accountability, we will see a real change.”last_img read more

Rousseff reelected on call to save Brazils social gains

first_imgIn a campaign that featured ‘change’ as the buzzword for both sides, the incumbent argued that Neves’s economic proposals would produce recession and erase gains for 36 million Brazilians who have risen from extreme poverty under her party’s rule. Rousseff in her victory speech pledged to engage in dialog as she vows to stimulate economic growth and fight corruption. ‘Some times in history, narrow results produced much stronger changes than very wide victories,’ she said in Brasilia. ‘From now on in Brazil we will have a debate of ideas, clash of positions that may produce areas of consensus capable of moving our society along the paths of change that we so badly need. My first words are a call for peace and unity.’ Neves said in his concession speech that he phoned Rousseff to casking to unite the country.last_img read more

Marquezs classic comes alive

first_imgFans of Gabriel Garcia Marquez can look forward to a rare performance of a play based on the iconic writer’s novella Chronicle of a Death Foretold in the national capital. A collaborative work by Manjari Kaul and Promona Sengupta, the performance is an unusual combination of the use of storytelling technique and characters’ first person accounts that are sometimes varying, some similar, some shaky, at times minutely detailed and some fading recollection of the murder of Santiago Nasar, the organisers said. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The adaptation of the play was organised by The Improper Fractions in association with Instituto Cervantes, Penguin Random House and India International Centre on April 30. Chronicle Of A Death Foretold, first published in 1981, speaks about the mysterious death of a young man, and chronologically retraces the situations that led to this baffling murder. The novella commences on the deceptively harmless morning of the day when Santiago Nasar was murdered. The story then retraces backwards, introducing Angela Vicario and Bayardo San Roman, a couple about to get married. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixIt is then disclosed, that on their wedding night, Roman discovers that Angela is not a virgin and returns her to her maiden house. Upon investigating, Angela’s twin brothers discover that Santiago Nasar is the man responsible for this disgraceful situation, and they set out to kill him. The day Nasar dies is the same day the Bishop comes to town to bless the newly wedded couple. In the chaos and excitement that accompany the anticipation of the Bishop’s arrival, a series of unheeded warnings and events unfold that ultimately lead to the Vicario brothers stabbing Nasar on his front door. The Vicario family leaves town, and the brothers are ultimately imprisoned for three years. Angela, who realized that she had fallen in love with Roman the night he returned her home, decides to write him letters every week. Chronicle Of A Death Foretold? was adapted into a Spanish film in 1987, and was later adapted into a Broadway musical in 1995. Marquez who also wrote Love in the Time of Cholera, No One Writes to the Colonel, The General in His Labyrinth, and The Autumn of the Patriarch besides his epic 1967 novel One Hundred Years of Solitude died at the age of 87.last_img read more
