New Jersey Hall of Fame: CLASS OF 2017
“First some comments about New Jersey,” said Whoopi Goldberg, the surprise host of the 10th Annual New Jersey Hall of Fame induction ceremony.  “I live here.  It’s a wonderful state and what most people don’t know is that the amount of brain power that comes out of New Jersey is extraordinary!  The musicians and their prowess is amazing! When you look at the amount of folks who are here - this is your city; this is your state; these are your people.  Maybe you will be up here at some point.”

REVIEW: "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom"
I recall hearing an anecdote concerning a society of pranksters in 1970s London who would take trips en masse to the cinema, only to walk out when or if the title of the movie in question was spoken by a character. That lot would get their money’s worth with Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, as it’s not until the closing minutes that a returning original cast member (in a blink and you’ll miss it cameo) informs us that we’re now living in a “Jurassic World.” It’s the sort of cringeworthy moment that would normally cause me to groan, but I was so broken down by the laziness and ineptitude of this fifth installment in the franchise that I couldn’t even muster a sigh by that late point.

Mike Daly & The Planets
For a long time, Mike Daly had trouble envisioning himself as a lead singer.  He knew his baritone range was much deeper than the majority of singers heard on the radio and rarely heard anyone who sounded like him. Until one day when the late Pat DiNizio,  a fellow North Jersey artist who fronted The Smithereens, entered the picture.

REVIEW: "Sequence Break"
One of the great under-rated horror movies of recent years is Jackson Stewart’s Beyond the Gates. Two of the stars of Stewart’s movie, Graham Skipper and Chase Williamson, reunite for Sequence Break, written and directed by Skipper and starring Williamson in the lead role. Both films make for a dove-tailing double bill of horror movies that employ the genre, and the current obsession with all things 1980s, to explore the dangers of nostalgia and seeking sanctuary in the comforts of your childhood.

Featured Music Video: "Driving You Home" by Brian Fitzpatrick and the Band of Brothers
This month's featured music video is "Driving You Home" by Brian Fitzpatrick and the Band of Brothers.

INSIDE MUSIC: I Can’t Remember The Lyrics!
I’ve always had difficulty memorizing song lyrics. There are many reasons why singers might have that problem. It might be fear. And the fear of forgetting lyrics becomes a mental loop;  the more anxious and fearful one becomes, the greater grows the fear and anxiety.  Like attracts like.
