REVIEW: Dunkirk
Too often, history disappears in a fog of dates. We all know the year the Battle of Hastings was fought, or when Columbus discovered the Americas, but beyond that the details aren’t so clear. We know more about WWII, chiefly because it was the first war of the media age, documented in real time by radio coverage and for posterity on film. We can counter the claims of Holocaust deniers thanks to footage shot by allied cameramen during the liberation of death camps, whereas the voices of victims of earlier campaigns of genocide are growing more silent with every passing day. And of course there are still some living among us who experienced the conflict first-hand.

Featured Music Video: "Only The Tequila Talkin'" by Lisa Bouchelle
This month's featured music video is "Only The Tequila Talkin'" by Lisa Bouchelle (featuring John Popper of Blues Traveler)

Bad Hombres Comedy
Bad Hombres Comedy is a comedy group created by Brian Nichols, Paul Salazar Jr. and Bernardo Cubría.  The trio all studied together at the University of Houston and have kept in touch ever since.  Together, they create a weekly podcast and a video web series that satirizes the world we now live in thanks to Donald Trump.

Around The Internet: The Feed
After receiving attention for one of his politically charged status updates on Facebook, Jeff quickly becomes addicted to the likes and shares, letting his new found “influence” go to his head. Now, Jeff treats his newsfeed like a publication, going so far as to turn his living room into his personal newsroom.  That’s the premise behind a new digital-series, The Feed, debuting July 25 with new episodes posted weekly.

REVIEW: After Love
We’ve seen so many dramas exploring failed relationships recently that it can seem like a crowded market; what more can be said on the subject? With After Love, Belgium’s Joachim LaFosse takes a unique approach in two distinct ways. While recent movies on this topic (Blue Valentine, The Broken Circle Breakdown) have contrasted the end of relationships with their beginnings, LaFosse’s movie begins long after things have broken down between his protagonists, pragmatic Marie (Berenice Bejo) and wastrel Boris (Cedric Kahn), and he steadfastly refuses to contextualize the end of their 15 year long partnership. There are no flashbacks. No references to prior indiscretions. No clues.

INSIDE MUSIC: Faerie Elaine of the Silver Stream
I met Elaine Silver in the early 80s, when she was being lauded as Queen of the New Jersey Folk Singers. I was the Clubdate Queen. And the man who introduced us was The Jazz Poet (The late, esteemed Charlie Mosler.) We were a mixed bag of established performers…and simpatico…busy at work in traditional and non-traditional spaces and events.
