PHOTOS from moe. and Daniel Donato's Cosmic Country at The Stone Pony
 

Asbury Park, NJ held their fireworks display on July 3rd this year. Jokingly, I asked myself was this because moe. was back at the Summer Stage?! Clearly, it was because July 4th was a Thursday this year and it did not benefit completely as the introduction to the holiday weekend. Because of this the vibe in the air arriving in Asbury was different. More intimate, as if the people gathered knew this was the place to be if they were meant to be there. Within 10 minutes upon my arrival, I ran into 2 friends. Extended moe.ron family, one who was camped out for the show in a grass strip between streets outside of the venue.

New Release Review - "Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F"
 

1980s Hollywood was fuelled by a simple formula, the "fish out of water." Whether it be an alien landing in the suburbs; a boorish, middle-aged Jewish comic attending college; or a young boy finding himself in the body of Tom Hanks; audiences lapped this stuff up. With 1983's fish out of water comedy Trading Places, director John Landis moulded Eddie Murphy into the '80s equivalent of Groucho Marx. Just as the Jewish Marx had done in the '30s, the African-American Murphy built his shtick around mocking wealthy white people. The movie that cemented this status was 1984's Beverly Hills Cop, in which Murphy played Axel Foley, an unfiltered Detroit undercover cop who found himself in the alien surrounds of that American centre of white elitism, Beverly Hills. The plot - something, something corruption, or something - was irrelevant. Audiences turned up to see Murphy crack wise, do funny voices and take the piss out of rich folk, and he did so with a unique and natural ease that no comic performer has matched in the decades since.
